What is the VIP tan, how does it work, and why is it beneficial? The VIP tan includes prep & moisture lock mists that are like a base & top coat to nail polish, but for sunless tans. These extend the life of the tan & helps with a more even fade.
Let's start with the prep spray! It goes on before the solution application, & it helps to neutralize the skin's PH, which allows the color to adhere more evenly. Think of this as allowing us to have a blank canvas to work with, which is ideal with any piece of art. The solution is a clear mist that takes around 30 seconds to apply, & it smells fantastic! It's a great option if you are heading to the studio from the gym, a long day at work, or from any other activity. The goal is to break down any oils, perfumes, deodorant, sweat, & other impurities that may have built up during the day.
Next is the moisture lock, which is my favorite! It is applied much like the prep spray, but it's added on after your spray tan is complete. It's also a clear mist, but it smells good enough to eat! It gets rid of the dreaded spray tan smell, & it acts as a tan extender. You may have seen tan extender products at Sun Tan City that you can purchase. This does the same thing without having to keep up with yet another bottle/product at your house. It's great for dry skin or anyone that is really invested in having the best possible outcome with their color.
The price of the VIP tan is $60, compared to $45 for the standard Bearden studio spray. If you book a Bearden studio spray, you can add one or both of these on at the time of service. Additionally, If you have a monthly membership, these are discounted. All of our artists are knowledgeable with these products so please let us know if we can answer any questions for you!
