Mystic Tan. Tried out Mystic Tan on Friday and thought it worked pretty well. I didn't really know what to expect so I decided to step into the tanning salon to ask some questions. I was a little nervous needless to say because I didn't really want to come out of the salon looking as though I'd just come back from spending 4 weeks in Jamaica, but I decided to go ahead and try it all the same. It's a little bit on the expensive side - $30/session which takes 28 seconds. Anyhow, what you do is you undress, put your hair in a little shower cap, step into the Mystic Tan booth, press the green button and after 5 seconds you get sprayed with a fine mist of God knows what which takes about 14 seconds. Then it stops, you have 5 seconds to turn around and then it proceeds to spray you for another 14 seconds. Then you step out of the booth, towel off, get dressed and leave. To make a long story short, it did give me a slight tan, a little streaky but I think that's because I put lotion on my skin afterwards (you're not supposed to put anything on your skin for at least 4-6 hours after the "shower"). Yes, I did have itchy skin afterwards and yes, at first I did think I was having an allergic reaction to the "shower", but the following day I was fine and happy with the results. So, yes, I will go back again and yes, for all you Caspers out there, there is a tan at the end of the tunnel......... Of course yesterday when we went to the gym and Eric and Ben went swimming I stayed inside and worked out because I was afraid the tan was going to wash off in the swimming pool ...................ah, sigh, I'm never happy.
