Guess who got a tan..... and a #Giveaway

Remember how I have shared complained in the past about how pale I am? Well I was given the opportunity to try a sunless #spraytan booth by #VersaSpa, I have tried the tanning beds in the past (like 8 years ago) and my experience was very mixed, first I found out, right before a wedding, that I burn like a hot tamale, and then I shed, also I had to go multiple times to see any results, so even though in the end I did have a tan, the process was sort of like a nightmare.

So I was a little skeptical to give it another try, first let me tell you this is not a tanning bed, no burning light with brownie points towards melanoma, no sir, this is your sunless tanning lotion evenly applied, no crazy orange patches where you went a little crazy with it, no fuss, no mess, and no waiting 5 sessions to see the results.

I am not going to lie, I did get a semi orange hand, but that is just because I suck at following instructions, the video in the room was clear as water, and to make it worse the guy at the salon walked me through the whole process step by step, so I am the only one to blame for it.

When tanning the traditional way it takes me several days to get a decent color, in the past I used tanning lotions with 4 SPF and accelerator, I was pretty young and irresponsible, and couldn't care less that the first day my "tanning" probably would have been considered burns of some degree, then I became more responsible and switched to 50 SPF sunblock, it works great for me, the only problem is that it takes me a couple of days to build a tan, and unless I am on vacation I don't have time for that, so anything that will speed the process and give me the same results will be heaven sent.

Below you can see the stages of the tan, and if you have seen my pictures in the past you can definitely tell the difference, there is no filter on any of my pictures, and I was ready to do cartwheels when I saw that my legs were actually tanned, (they seem to be made out of something else, because they just refuse to tan). Bottom line  I am sold, the only "down side" for some people is the smell, but as long as I am aware of it it really doesn't even bother me, just don't lie and say "odorless" ... please. Otherwise this is the perfect fix for a pale skin in the summer. And now you have the chance to try it for yourself, enter the rafflecopter below and good luck!!

PS: I forgot, the color is so even that I am only wearing blush, nothing else, so it also cuts on your, get ready time in the morning ... ka-ching!!!!
