Sheer Tan Review

Living in Florida, everyone expects me to have a wonderful tan. However, I am extremely fair and after a recent bout of skin cancer, I am extremely vigilant about protecting my skin from the sun’s damaging rays. In order to have a lovely glow I must rely on safer alternatives such as a spray tan. I have been extremely pleased with the results of spray tanning but it can be very cost prohibitive at $25-$40 per spraying at the salon each week.

SheerTan® Sunless Spray provides the same experience right at home for a fraction of the salon cost and the same results…….a lovely tan! I was very excited to try this product but a bit apprehensive at first too because I know from past experience that it can be hard to apply sunless tanners evenly to the skin. The SheerTan® Sunless Spray is very easy to use. I exfoliated my skin really well (make sure it is not an oil based), applied the product with the applicator wand and then I rubbed a really good moisturizer into my elbows, knees, hands, feet and ankles (the next time I remembered my wrists which did have some discoloration). I chose to wear gloves when applying the product and then moisturized my hands and palms so it did not have discoloration. I was very pleased with how easy it was to use the applicator wand and it sprayed evenly onto my skin with minimal effort. I was even able to reach the contours of my back and shoulders with the smart design of the wand.

I developed a light, natural looking tan a few hours after application and by the next day it was quite noticeable. In fact, my husband scolded me because he initially thought that I was tanning in the sun….he was surprised to learn that it was a sunless tanner. You can learn more about how SheerTan® works in the helpful “before and after” section of the SheerTan® website.

I really appreciate that SheerTan® does not contain a bronzer so I don’t have to worry about the coloring rubbing off on my clothes. Using lots of moisturizer every day kept my tan glowing nicely for six full days before I need a reapplication.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the results I achieved using SheerTan® and will continue to use this product to give the illusion of a sun kissed Florida tan! You can purchase the SheerTan® starter kit on sale for only $29.99 which is a fraction of what I paid in the salon for just one tan. You can even purchase additional aerosol sets for fantastic prices too………finally, affordable and reliable spray self tanning at home!
