Could you get a professional one done instead? I have never really found with DIY ones that you get perfect coverage, not like the spray tan the pros use.

I heard that’s a pretty good one, if you know what you’re doing and know you won’t have a skin reaction I would try it out.

I just used Banana Boat before mine.

I’d do a hidden test patch on similar skin first, so the underside of your boobs for face and your legs or low back for arms. Exfoliate all over first, and if the results aren’t great at least they’ll be hidden. Even a 5 day test will provide plenty of time to gauge how it works on your skin and let it fade or apply it all over.

I would get a professional spray tan! I woukdn’t mess with the lotions but yes if you do a hidden spot test it should be ok.

Get a spray tan… I did and the inside of my dress is as white as ever.  Just go with the lightest possible and do it like three days before.  It’s not like it sits on top of your skin.  The tan I got took like 12 hours to get the full effect and didn’t even rub off right after I got it.  You could get one now to test and one a few days before the wedding.

@Evie19:I understand your fear- I did the lightest spraytan ONE time. Mr.ND refused to walk by his Snookie while grocery shopping. LOL. I couldn’t shower/scrub enough! I like home lotions because I’m in control of the application and can make changes as needed.

@Evie19: Find one that has a 2 hour clear – which means that you are good to shower etc after 2 hours, so it wont go over anything. If they are good they should defintely not rub off. Speak to the pros, get a trial. I dont usually like them but i found a natural tan look (im scared of looking like an oompa loompa from charlies chocolate factory!) but this was so natural I fell in love with it.
