#HolidayGiftGuide for the extreme tanner, 'aint no Casper 'round here! #review

I have done a few blog reviews for spray Tanning Products this year! But these products sent from Extreme Tan & Smoothies are by far my favorite yet!
I loved the little set of bottles they sent and it was really a complete package!
In tanning (and yes, even spray tanning!)
I love the pamphlet included with my kit (seen above) which has VERY helpful tips on achieving the perfect sunless tan!
My advice, exfoliate exfoliate, exfoliate again.
 I love how organized their site!
Shop by:

  • Skin care (Lotions, exfoliators, accelerators) 
  • Kits & Combos (Combo packages save you a little bit of ca$h!)
  • Sunless Tanning (My go-to move, and my favorite accessory and bathroom shelf most used item!)
  • Tanning Lotion (good old fashioned Tanning Lotion!)

Now we all know what's right and what isn't right for us.If your extremely pale you wouldn't want to use anything too terribly dark, and in my opinion, you should stay away form sunless tanning until you have developed a base tan,. otherwise you'll look funny!
Also, I have to be careful (because I'm a wuss) and I hate tingle lotions! Some people LOVE them.. now me- personally.. I don't see how. They hurt! But I guess people are into that?
In fact, I like my Sunless Tanning to have a bronzer, but I do not like accelerators with bronzers in them. It can be very hard for me to find an accelerator without bronzer, and even harder to find one without Tingle. Especially hard to find one with neither.
That's why I loved Sensual so much. 

I love how affordable their products are.. because if you don't know.. back home in Alabama if you walk into a tanning salon intending to buy anything from there, be prepared to shell out a pretty penny for it. At least double -- if not more than Extreme Tan & Smoothies charges..

Here.. lets compare:

The exfoliation scrub by ETAS that I received (above) is called PINK. The cost on Extreme Tan & Smoothies Site is only 17$.
That would cost about 25 where I'm from.
Moving on to the Bronzer Free Accelerator SENSUAL -- their price is 20$ .. which is half of what I have paid.

"Sensual is a Level 4 Tan Extending Bronzer-Free Moisturizer
 Sensual is loaded with high quality ultra-moisturizing ingredients that will not only ensure your skin's inner health, Sensual tan extending bronzer-free moisturizer will also increase your skin's outer beauty and extend the life of your tan. "
Moving on to the Sunless tanner: Spray Tan Can the price is a LOW $23.95, which is lower than I pay at a Tanning Salon for sprays like this.
I loved the design of the can, and more importantly the results. The tan is long lasting and looks natural. Did I mention how good it smells? Coconut-ty!

"Extreme Tan and Smoothies exclusive Spray Tan Can provides the perfect even bronze tan everyone desires. This anti-aging bronzing mist gives you an instant streak-free tan whether you use it for touch-ups or full body tans.

The Spray Tan Can is larger than most competitor brands at 7oz. 

I love the exfloliator sent : PINK. I love that there are several other exfoliating scrubs to choose from on their site as well!

"When a tanner plateaus their exfoliation process gets sluggish, their elimination pathways become clogged and new skin cell productions slow down. 

Tanning products use alpha hydroxides to open the pathways and help you get a deeper penetration so you tan darker. This doesn't always work or it takes more than one session. The exfoliation opens your pathways and allows your body to receive the full effects of your tanning lotion or sunless spray. This will cause you to get a better tan and deeper color the first time you use it. Not oil based, perfect for the shower. 
Fragrance: Pink Grapefruit "
If you are interested in trying some of the products I reviewed, you can buy a Combo Pack of the Spray Tan Can PLUS which is $23.95 meaning you buy the Spray Tan Can and get the exfoliating scrub PINK totally free! No strings attached!!! Neat, huh?
Another neat product they have that I didn't review, but surely deserves a shout-out is their Bronzer Drops, which is a glass dropper bottle of bronzer that can be added to any of your favorite lotions you already use and the price is a very affordable $17.95, which could potentially save you OH SO much  money if you buy Sunless tanner regularly.
"Extreme Tanning Lotion Bronzing Drops enhance the bronzing power of your current indoor tanning lotion, even if your lotion already contains bronzers or is a bronzer-free tanning lotion. 

Our exclusive Bronze Drops can be added to any indoor tanning lotion for either super deep dark tan bronzing results to take your tan safely to the next level. "

I do feel like this would the perfect gift for the wife or sister who loves to tan but of course, with it being winter and all, she'd appreciate being able to keep her tan with these products  she'd love that immensely. Besides-- spray tan is so much cheaper, and safer.. than a tanning bed package.
Would last longer too.. just sayin'!
