Who It's For

Good for all skin types except the very lightest. Not that dark when it develops.

Dr. Irwin's Product Review

Sun Laboratories makes great self tanners.Their products go on well, without being too heavy or greasy. They smell reasonably good - not that chemical smell you get with many self tanners. They don't streak (unless your application is really bad), and the color tone is natural, not too orange. We now carry the Medium, which gives some color but is not too dark.  You can start with a small amount and rub it in well, then see how dark it comes out. You can always add more the next day.

How to Use

Always exfoliate well first and be careful around joints and feet to not apply too much. Rub in thoroughly and apply with gloves or wash your hands well after application. Brown spots on your skin will tend to pick up more self-tanner. So if you have have brown spots, you may want to take a Q-Tip and rub off the self-tanner on them. Put regular skin cream on your hands before applying self-tanner; that helps to get the self-tanner off your fingers when you're done. Or use exam gloves (drugstore).

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
