Review of Sun FX Spray Tan

By Mairead Sadlier 8/4/16

Being a pasty Irish lady with my 30th birthday looming, I decided to go all out and treat myself to a spray tan for my party. Having had the typical tango tan before, I was a little cautious and googled “natural spray tans”; this is where I found Sun FX. After checking their stockists, the salon closest to me was The Buff Day Spa.

After work the Thursday evening before my party, I went around to get my tan done. When I booked, the receptionist recommended bringing along some loose clothes for after the spray tan and told me, if possible, to come along make-up free. I didn’t have time to do this before leaving work, but Rebecca was very helpful and gave me a cleanser to remove it before having the tan done.

My therapist, Niamh W, came and collected me for my tan. She explained there were 2 shades to choose from and recommended I try Caribbean Chocolate; I automatically panicked thinking this was going to be very dark. Niamh explained, she herself was quite pale and it was the shade she goes for when she gets a Sun FX tan. She said the tan is the perfect shade for “Irish Skin” so I opted for that one.

After spraying me, Niamh left me in the room to dry off for 5 minutes, before getting into my loose clothes. I probably stayed a little longer than I should, but Niamh knocked on the door to make sure I was ok and happy with everything.

She recommended I wash with the Sun FX Body Wash, which was available at reception with 25% Off. As my party was the Saturday, I bought it to ensure my tan stayed as flawless as possible.

When I woke up on Friday morning, I was delighted with the look of my tan; it was perfect and so natural! It really made me feel so much more confident heading to my 30th birthday party in my new guná! It even lasted for my post party brunch with the girls on Sunday morning.

For any typically Irish ladies like myself, Sun FX Spray Tans at The Buff Day Spa are the way forward! I will definitely be back before my brother’s wedding in September.
