Giveaway #14 Mystic Tan ~ NOW CLOSED

Pin It
Congratulations to our winner #6 Andrea D who has won a full sized bottle of spray tan
from Mystic Tan's take home line! I hope you enjoy it!
Thank you to all who entered & Thank you to Mystic Tan!

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel so much prettier with
a tan? As an added bonus a tan also gives you a slimming effect.  I love the look
of a nice tan but don't have the time or the luxury to lay out in the sun(I know most of you can relate)
not to mention the heat this summer has been brutal!
I am SO loving the cooler weather btw :)

So, Jennifer from Blue Sky Promotions (you can follow her on twitter HERE)
was nice enough to let me try out a few items from the Mystic Tan take home line.
I was unaware that they even offered any at home products so I was excited to give them a go.
Now in the past I tried the Mystic Booth, which was quick & I liked the results but they were a little too orange for me. Not to mention it took my breath away as it sprayed the front of me.

With that being said, the take home Mystic products are so much better in my opinion!
Let me warn you that there is a learning curve to using the BUILD Spray, but it is a very small curve.
I loved that you can hold the can at any angle in case you are applying it yourself, although
I do suggest that you get someone to help you, because it's not easy to get your back solo.

The first time I applied it, I didn't think I put enough on because I put one layer on.  However, it does gradually darken over the next 6-8 hours or so. To me though it seemed to continue to deepen over the next day-which was great.
The streaks of stark white where I had missed.....not so much.  I learned just after that
one time that the key is to take my time & to keep the sprays closer together.  I
simply went back over the white with a few sprays & it blended perfectly.

You can then go back & spray again until you reach your desired color. I would wait at least a
day between sprays just to make sure your color doesn't continue to deepen & you end up with the shade you want.
I really loved the color of the tan, it gave such a beautiful glow that was not orange at all!
It does still give you that smell of feet, but once you take your first shower after the tan has developed, the smell is gone.

Then there is a really great product from the Mystic take home line called BOOST, which
is an enhancer. You can use this lotion a couple of days or more after your tan has developed to help prevent fading.  You can also use it as a boost(hence the name) and control your color.

GLOW is the final product I tried out, and it not only has SPF 15 to protect your skin from harmful rays,
but it helps prolong your tan & has a patented color building complex to bring out your skin's own
healthy glow.

You must wash your hands thoroughly after using each of these products, as to not stain your palms of course. ;) I loved that you don't have to rub in the BUILD or wipe off with a towel(like in the booth).

After my tan faded, I had a Versa Spa spray tan done at the salon to compare.
I used medium setting and got DARK.....unfortunately it was too dark on my knuckles and you could see on my hands/fingers where the barrier cream was applied.

I personally like the Mystic take home products better because you can build the color gradually & with the spray can you are in control. There is no need for a barrier cream at home
because the spray provides even coverage, that is easily corrected if you miss areas.
They do advise you to use sparingly on knees & elbows since it can get in the grooves there.

They carry products to prepare your skin before your at home tan as well, such as exfoliator, ph balancing conditioner, & hydrator.

Jennifer is offering one of my lucky readers a can of the BUILD spray from Mystic Tan.
