Best Indoor tanning lotions

Get the Jersey Shore tan with Pauly D's new line for Devoted

There is great debate over which tanning lotions are the best, which are really worth the money, which get you the best color...etc. I've been tanning since I was 15 years old. I've tried almost every lotion out there, and can firmly tell you that YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Want a lotion that will get you a nice, deep, NATURAL bronze color? Don't want to look like an Oompa Loompa? Then don't buy the $20 walmart bronzing lotion. Want your skin to feel moisturized? again...the cheap stuff isn't going to cut it. I always tell people to think of their indoor tanning lotion the same way they think of skin care. You only have one skin for the rest of your life, it's worth spending money to take care of it. People will spend $1,000+ on face products, but can't see the value in an $80 bottle of lotion that will help nourish and protect your skin. I think the best thing we can do is educate ourselves on the benefits and drawbacks of different indoor tanning products so that we can give accurate descriptions to customers and find something that will fit their needs, while being able to express to them the value in the product. With that in mind, here are my top picks for far. 

Anything Goes by Devoted
100xxx bronzer? yes please. This lotion has their BodyFit and RevitaFit technology to firm and tone the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is also contains an anti aging formula and their FreshTek to ensure that you smell awesome after your tan! 

Black Noir
22x's bronzer with Ultra Pure DHA and Erythrulose gives you noticeably darker skin after just one tanning session. This lotion also contains amino acids to help maintain your tan and nourish your skin! Combined with SunStay technology and a fresh citrus scent, I think this is a great lotion! 

BombShell 100XX Bonzer (Tingle lotion)
I have personal experience with this lotion. It's tingle factor is insane! It contains White Tea Extract, Soy, and CoQ10 and has a kiwi watermelon fragrance. Tingle lotions work by dilating the small surface blood vessels in your skin so that the blood rushes to the surface and oxygenates your skin cells to help them tan better than ever! Most use Niacin or a niacin based compound, and this is what causes the "tingle" feeling. It is harmless, but should only be used by advanced tanners. 

DC Forever Black
I love love love this lotion. It gets you super dark in just one session. After a week of using this lotion, I looked like I had been living in Jamaica for a few months! Its silicone based, contains Acai Oil and Ceraminde2  moisture barrier. Your skin feels super soft and moisturized after your tanning session. The scent is "alluring amber" so it's good for both men & women because it isn't a floral smell.

This is a 'warming' lotion, but not a tingle. I love the way this makes my skin feel...kind of like a cozy blanket. Every time I tan with this, I end up napping during my session because i'm so warm. It has a pretty great bronzer in it too, and smells like fruit punch. It has volcanic minerals and all kinds of other good stuff to ensure nourished, refreshed skin with every tan. 

Pauly D: The After Party
I haven't used this, but I love Jersey Shore AND Pauly D. can't be bad. I don't think someone who's whole persona is based on his perfect tan would put his name behind a less than stellar tanning lotion. It contains Matrixyl anti aging compound, RevitaFit for skin toning, and multiple tanning accelerators to ensure ultra dark color out of each session. The scent is "iced berry". I can't wait to try it!

The prices of lotion vary by salon, but just always keep in mind, you pay premium price for premium results.

The Norvell Airbrush difference

Airbrush tanning provides the look of a great tan, without the UV Rays! Norvell has perfected the sunless solution and I love their product line. They have something for everyone! Is it an Organic based tan you are looking for? They have you covered. Need to get Pro Dark for a fitness or bikini competition? I think Norvell Black Out is the best looking competition color on the market. They also have great color selection ranging from light to double dark...and with their new 1 hour solution, there's no reason not to try it! 
We use their portable airbrush system since we do mobile tanning as well as airbrush at our store front. 

the mobile tent is easily set up at any location, so it's a great idea for a girls night, bridal party, or for mom's that do not have time to get out of the house but still want to look great!

Sun Angel: Tanning with Confidence!

Take the guess work out of tanning with Ergoline's latest technology! The Sun Angel sensors your skin and the bulbs are custom adjusted for each individual tanning session, virtually eliminating the risk of over exposure. With the Sun Angel's variable spectrum technology, you get a combination of UVA & UVB rays that will produce a deep, natural tan, as well as promote vitamin D synthesis!

In addition to providing you with a great looking tan, you will also benefit from the added luxuries of a 3D sound system and MP3 Player Dock, Aroma therapy, Aqua mist, and adjustable body fans.

The sensor is easy to use, and the measurements are taken right before tanning begins. 

The inside of the bed is contoured to the body, and very roomy.
