Tan Fan

I’m super pumped.

I’m a bit of a self-made self-tanning guinea pig. I’m blonde, fair, and slam-packed with various events every weekend this summer, keeping me from my usual weekend routine of laying about on the beaches of Avalon (yes, with SPF), from sun-up to sun-down. And so I spray.

I’ve grown weary of all my usual products, and today on a lunch hour pop-in to Bluemercury, spotted ModelCo’s line of airbrush tanning products. Some are instant bronzers, but not self-tanners. Some are self-tanners, but go on translucent, with color appearing hours later. There are exfoliators and tanner-applicator gloves — it’s like this display was put out just for beach-starved me. And what did I chose? The Tan Airbrush In A Can ($30-$42). It’s an instant bronzer and a (supposedly long-lasting) self-tanner in one, and I am optimistic about its possibly becoming one of my faves yet.
