SO! I went for my very FIRST spray tan last month and I have been dying to tell you all about it because IT WAS AWESOME!
Firstly let me start by explaining how white I am. My legs are basically see-through and I pretty much always have some sort of a disaster t-shirt/neckline/sunglasses tan. My skin is not good in the sun. I do not tan. I burn. My friend’s wedding & the little fact that I was the palest of her trio of bride-slaves pushed me in the direction of looking into tanning options – I was not about to let the team down with my lily white bod… oh no siree.
This is where Glow Cape Town came in… I got in touch with Tamryn (owner) and proceeded to ask her all the reallllly boring questions. Will I go orange? Will I have streaky legs? Will my elbows and knees have dark blotches? Will I blend into my coral bridesmaid dress? Will it last? Will it show? You get the point. I have seen one too many spray/self tans go bad and I was dead set pooping myself. Tamryn was so, so very helpful and professional and PATIENT. She explained everything in detail and assured me it would look fab and I believed her.
The actual experience was a breeze. Tamryn made me feel so at ease and comfortable. We went through the whole process and she recommended the correct shade for my skin tone (the lightest one) and then it was go time. I stood in this little tanning tent while Tamryn applied the spray, telling me when to turn, lift my arms, move my legs etc and 5 minutes later we were done. I was tanned and ready to rock.
The result was natural and the perfect shade on me. There was no orange. Friends complimented me and commented on how glowing and healthy I looked. I felt confident and I honestly felt a couple kilos lighter. Tanned fat is way prettier than white fat. It is a fact.
Glow Cape Town has a few spray tanning options:
R180 – At Glow in Claremont
R280 – At your own home – Tamryn will come to you. She will bring her fold up tent and tanning equipment to you so that you can get your tan on in your very own home. No mess, no fuss and only 100 bucks more for the convenience of it all.
You can also throw your own little tanning party and there are discounted prices for 5 or more. My next girlie get together needs to be this.
I actually can’t wait for the next wedding/function/weekend that calls for some colour 🙂
