Well as most of you noticed in my pictures I WAS a tad bit tanner than usual. YES, I did get a spray tan before going to Utah as not to scare those who were gonna meet me for the first time. Yikes.
I didn't end up getting an actual "MYSTIC" tan, I went to another place that had a similar thing called the Veraspa. It's the same idea. I think the only thing different was that it sprayed me with air at the end to blow dry me.
Many of you (including myself) have been curious as to how a spray tan turns out. Is it a disaster never to be tried? Does it leave streaks? Does it stain your clothes? All very legit questions that I believe deserve answers.
That's what I'm here for...to answer those questions!!
So here are my thoughts.
**It didn't stain my hands and feet all weird like I expected. It actually looked really blended. I used a TON of the lotion on my nails and hands, covering them completely and not rubbing it in at all. I looked like I had glue all over my hands and feet.
**It was an overall good color. Not too orange but the lady said the veraspa uses different formulas than mystic and it's a more brown. I liked the color a lot, it was just enough and I ended up going with medium.
**It left absolutely NO streaks on my legs, arms or any other part of my body visable to me. It was very smooth and clean looking.
**It didn't stain my clothes at ALL. I put them back on right after using it and even SLEPT in those WHITE undies (if ya know what I mean) and not a single streak of brown on them. Okay that sounds gross.
**The color on my face and neck was much darker than on the rest of my body, a little darker than I had wanted.
**Now that the color is fading, there are certain areas that look blotchy because the color is coming off of them faster. In between my boobs I have a section that is really bad and if I rub it it gets worse and worse.
**The color DOES stain your towels when it starts to fade as you get outta the bath. I didn't notice it until today when I used a white towel and it looked disgusting after I dried off.
**My belly button looks dirty. I guess I should have put cream in it too but I didn't think of that.
I probably WILL do this again because I liked the results and the cons aren't bad enough to make me never do it again. BUT, I'll probably only use it for special occasions, like the first week of the summer before the beach every day, trips, night outs...stuff like that.
In all honesty, I think it looks BETTER the first few days than the last few. It really starts to get weird at the end so make sure if you do it, do it the day or two before your "event" or whatever you're doing it for.
Hope this helps!
