Frequently Asked Questions Q. Is this a self serve machine for the application? A. No, this is custom spray tanning, performed by a spray technician and licensed esthetician (Geri).
Q. How long will this take? A. Approximately 20 minutes, the spray tan process itself takes less than 10 minutes, but time needs to be given to give a proper color consultation for your first visit.
Q. How do I prepare? Please see our Preparation page. The basics are - shower / shave / exfoliate at least 4 hours before your tan. Don't apply body lotion that day. It's preferred that you arrive without makeup and deodorant, but if you have that on, we do have makeup wipes for you. WEAR OR BRING DARK, LOOSE FITTING CLOTHES, and flip flops. Unless it's raining - then rainboots or closed shoes with umbrella. If you plan on getting a mani pedi, do it prior to your tan.
Q. How long will this last? A. On average, a week depending upon maintenance and the hydration levels of your skin. However, the majority of our clients have reported it's lasted 10 days to 2 weeks. We now have Camp Naturals Tan Extending Moisturizer back in stock. It imparts a natural glow with a slight self tanner and helps it last even longer. It can be purchased for $15.
Q. Do you spray tan minors? A. Yes, with permission from their parent or guardian. Parent must sign Smart Waiver online. Minor must wear bathing suit or undergarments.
Q. What is your cancellation policy? Please be mindful when booking your appointment to account for traffic, flights, etc. It's not recommended to book the same day you return to town as your flight may be delayed. We are often fully booked on certain nights back to back, so any late arrivals are subject to cancellation and fee charged. Less than 24 hour notice given for cancellation is a full service fee. Exceptions may be made, i.e. family member died, contact Geri directly. If you are sick, be sure to cancel with enough notice - please!
Q. What discounts do you offer? $5 off for students, teachers, those in the medical field, or those in emergency service response i.e. EMT / police. If you bring a friend with you to your appointment, you both only pay $55, which is valid for returning clients as well. We also have a special of $45 for a Brazilian wax, and $45 for Spray Tan following - valid with any technician and on your next visit. $3 off for parking reimbursement, and cash discount available. Discounts can not be combined.
Q. Do you spray tan pregnant women? A. No, sorry but we do not.
Q. Do you accept men as clients? A. Yes, undergarments are required for spray tanning. We do not currently offer male Brazilians.
Q. What payment methods do you accept? A. Cash and cards accepted through Square, Venmo and the reservation app.
Q. I'm going to a party/vacation on ___ date. When should I come in? A. 1-2 days prior to your departure. If waxing legs or large body parts, do it at least the day before, and do your nails the day before. Brazilian waxing may be done immediately prior with Geri before the appointment.
Q. I'm getting married. How should I prepare? A. We would suggest coming in for a trial tan at least two weeks prior to your wedding date. We do have a special that allows you to bring in your partner / fiancee with you for a complimentary face tan as well.
Q. Is this completely organic? A. It contains organic and natural ingredients. However, because the USDA does not currently certify DHA as organic, no company can make that all organic claim.
None of our products include the non-FDA approved ingredient Erythrulose, which is found in many other tanning products. They are all FDA approved, PETA approved, paraban free, hypoallergenic, fragrance free, non-comedigenic, vegan and free of harsh chemicals.
