Has anyone had this spray tan going to get it done this week at Coogan Bergin. Just wanted to know how it turned out.

i find the calafornian the most natural of the sprays tans & if you moisturise well every day it lasts a good while.

I've tried this once before and loved it, I can't find anywhere around dublin 15 that does it. Does anyone know where to get it done?

I've had it twice in the self operated booth thingys, it looked MUCH better the second time, I think because I washed it off in the shower after three hours. If very you're pale put the barrier cream on your whole face before you tan. It's less orange than St Tropez, and I've been topping it up with holiday skin moisturiser. Been looking natural for three days now. I'm trying to road test a few ove rthe next few months. Have you tried any others?

hi there unfortunatly i had a terrible experience with it. But to be honest, i think it was down to my skin type not taking to it, or else it must have been a dodgy batch from the salon :o0 . I looked like an ompa lumpa, and it took aages to come off (in patches). It has stained my nails for weeks afterwards. I've now decided to go with Sunfx as it suits my skin better My advice, get a trial first and make your decision there :wv

Myself, my 3 BMs and my friend got it done for my wedding. It was the worst tan I ever had done. We all got it applied on the Tuesday and on Wednesday, no one had any colour. Mine washed off in the shower. Went back to salon and owner told us it was either a lotion we had used or we all had strange skin (WTF, all 5 of us couldn't have strange skin). She also told us that a tan can't make you got physically darker than your own skin colour will allow. Total sh*t. My sister is a beautician and she said it must have been a really bad batch and it was badly applied. Went back on the Thursday to get the whole lot re-done and by the wedding on Friday, I still had no colour really. Should have just used my own tan. Would never get it done again. We got more of a tan standing around getting our photos taken on the day.
