Spray Tan Review
have found the solution to the dilemma that so many of us busy New Yorkers
face, and it is called the Smooth Synergy UV-Less Tan!
Here’s the problem: it’s the middle of summer already and you
are as pale as you were in February.
You long for that sun-kissed appearance, that warm glow, that
healthy bronze luster that says, “I’ve been gallivanting all over
southern Europe!” But the
sad truth is, you’ve been stuck in the office and haven’t made it to
the beach even once. But now
you’re determined to do something about it.
You are sick of looking like an egg and you are going to get some
instead of hauling yourself to some beach, park, or rock outcropping to
worship the sun (where you will situate your body at an angle to
facilitate maximum exposure, risking skin cancer, heat stroke, and those
annoying wrinkles that Mom warned you about), simply get to Midtown for
the Smooth Synergy UV-Less Tan.
In less than 15 minutes you will walk out the door with a natural
looking, odorless, guilt-free spray tan that makes you look and feel like
you actually have spent the summer on the French Riviera.
Synergy is a cosmedical spa that specializes in skin care, with
services ranging from Laser Hair Removal and Endermologie to
Massage and Acupuncture, and always has a doctor on-site.
I received the UV-Less Tan after a weekend of fruitless (and
guilty) sun exposure at the beach. Kyung,
my aesthetician, explained the process to me before we went into the room,
giving me the option of wearing a disposable bra and panties or going
without, and answering any questions that I had.
Synergy uses a completely natural and organic system.
The FDA-approved spray solution is made up of water, mineral salt
bronzers, and the vegetable-derived DHA 20.
Who would have thought that beets would help me look so great?
I now have a new appreciation for the ravishing root.
Plus it dries in about 5 minutes, so you won’t have to walk
around feeling sticky, like you often will with other spray tans.
Because the DHA 20 works with your skin and is not just a surface
treatment, the tan will continue to develop over the next 5-12 hours and
will be your own natural tan skin color, instead of that scary orange that
so many bronzers produce. The
solution is odorless and non-toxic (you can even breathe it while your
face is sprayed), and because the tan is carefully applied by an
aesthetician using an airbrush, you are assured an even and
natural-looking coverage. There
are different levels of color, so that you will get a customized tan and
won’t end up looking too dark. I
received a medium tan, and it has developed into a beautiful golden color
that reminds me of my youthful summers at the lake!
Ahhh, the good old days…
treatments as well as packages of 6 or 10 treatments are available,
depending on just how much fun in the sun you want to look like you’ve
had. And when you do make it
to the beach, relax under the umbrella and leave the sun-kissing to Smooth
I thought it was important to do a follow up and say that I am still tan!
Despite an overcast weekend and being in an office everyday, my skin is
still the hue of my natural tanning color (no orange, no
I moisturize in the morning and before I go to bed to prolong the life of
the tan, and I am so pleased that it is sticking around!
