Top Tips To Choose a Tanning Lotion

What do you want from a lotion?

Instant Colour: Give our DHA Bronzers a go! What is DHA? Well its a long complicated word…which is why we call it DHA, but in words you’ll understand its like fake tan, you will get instant colour from it.

Little Bit Bronze: Try a Natural Bronzer, our natural bronzers give you instant colour but without the worry of lines if you miss a little bit on your skin as these wash off in the shower and by the time you shower your colour is beautifully developed so you will have a lovely natural tan.

100% Natural: If you are just looking for a gradual tan with no bronzers we recommend an intensifier! Its perfect to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised and will help your tan progress.

What are you looking to spend?
No matter what you want to spend we have a lotion for you we have a wide range of sachets from £2.50 – £6.50, don’t want to commit to buying the bottle just yet then you can chose any of our sachets to try and then make a decision on what lotion is best for you! Our bottles range from £14.50 – £59.00, there is a lotion for everyone and every budget!

I don’t use a lotion, why should I and what should I try?
Would you shower without body wash? A lot of people think using a lotion is just another selling technique but honestly you should always use a lotion! Your natural skin reflects UV and a lotion prevents this! If you are using a sunbed for any other reason than tanning for example your doctor has suggested it, using an intensifier will just make sure your skin stays moisturised and hydrated and you will get a healthy glow. If you don’t want to buy a bottle don’t feel the need to! Try some sachets first, find a lotion you like and then get yourself the bottle in most of our lotions there is 17 sachets in a bottle of lotion so if you tan regularly you will save yourself a lot of money by buying the bottle.

For your first lotion we recommend you look at the different lotions, see what they have to offer and you can ask our fully trained staff to help you find the perfect lotion for your skin type and tanning preferences, we even have specific lotions for your face and tattoo protection!

Intensifier

I use an intensifier because I like to see real results, I don’t want the help of cosmetic bronzers, as my skin is a good colour anyway without added help. Also I like to use ones full of natural ingredients as it gives me skin added nourishment

Natural Bronzer

I always use a natural bronzer when tanning as naturally i have quite pale skin so it gives me a deep colour with only a few minutes on a sunbed better yet a tan develops so by the time i shower my colour is already developing so when the bronzer washes off I don’t see a difference in colour!

Intensifier

Intensifier works best for me when i go on the sunbed, i’ve tried the bronzers but i prefer a more natural looking tan that gets darker over time rather than instant colour you get the a bronzer.
