Calling all my pale and pasty friends who are ready for summer! I’ve found the best place to give you a golden glow without the fear of turning you orange (you won’t come out looking like Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars, I promise!) Last Friday I had my first experience at the cutest organic tanning salon Blush Tan in La Jolla. The weather has been pretty cloudy lately and I was in desperate need a little color, especially now that I’m officially in summer mode!
As soon as I arrived, I fell in love with the gorgeous decor. Seriously though, how cute is this place? Flowers, Instagram worthy walls, white and blush furnishings… the waiting area even had a comfy couch accompanied by a fuzzy faux blanket! I’ll admit, at first I was a little nervous and wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. I’ve gotten spray tans before, but only in the booth setting – which can not only be a little claustrophobic, but also leave some streaky lines and uneven color.
What I loved about Blush Tan is that you have your own private, spacious room and a professional there to airbrush the solution on you by hand and walk you through the process.
I wanted a natural sun-kissed glow and so my girl suggested the Blushtan® Original, which takes 10-12 hours to set before you can shower. They also have Express (4-6 hrs) and Super Express (2-4 hrs) options if you’re running short on time. Their products also contain no oils or alcohol so they won’t dry out your skin, clog pores or cause breakouts, which was perfect for me since I tend to breakout easily.
After the tan, I was happy to see that my skin a) wasn’t orange and b) was feeling already feeling softer and glowing. I honestly had such a great experience with Blush Tan and can’t wait to go back again soon! Although I wish it was a little closer to OC, it was definitely worth the trip… and luckily in a few months I’ll be much closer. If you’re close to one of their locations (check here to find one near you!) you should definitely drop by this summer – you’ll be thanking me and your skin afterwards!
