*Since this is my first post I figured I would share my tanning history before I started w/ anything else* Ok initially I went to a tanning salon did the whole thing with 2 tanning lotions ( before and after ). Was working great but I am hoping to get some moles removed and so I've decided to lay off on the tanning beds for now. I didn't get the moles from tanning..I've had them my whole life and I just finally want to get rid of them. It seems like I've gotten whiter over the years...I went from a nice olve tone to the lightest foundation color out of 30 shades. Since I'm not tanning and it hasn't been sun city living in Ohio I decided to get a self tanner. I got the Neutrogena Build A Tan and also got the exfoliator . The color was awesome ( no streaks or anything unlike some foam tanners ) although I ended up having to use about 75% of the bottle before I got a solid color that I liked. Now the color is coming off and it's splotchy. It said that it would just fade over time but it's peelin off and it looks like I've been burned in some places...it's just awful and driving me crazy! Now I don't care and I want to just remove it all and probably get a spray on tan but for those who know more about this kind of thing what are the best overall ( price/quality ) self tanner removers out there? I heard that there are some good ones from Sephora but I live about 4 hours away from one. Any good ones that I could find at a drugstore or something. Any tips would be greatly appreciated as I start school next week and don't want to go to school looking like a fried alligator...thanks so much~

Sorry, but I am laughing my aaa off....I had a lady come in here a couple of weeks ago that bought the same product.....remember that these company's are not in the tanning business and their product seems to fail...

Forget the drug store, call around & see who offers sray tanning...and for now I would suggest exfoliating with gloves, and next time call a Salon professional or E-mail one of us first!!! Linda

I ended up using the rest of the exfoliator and it finally all came off just in time ( the day before school starts up again ). Thanks for the replies and I will definately ask all questions here before doing anything else next time lol. I've decided to finally just stay away from the self tanners because like you said they aren't in the tanning business and their is always a flaw. How long do spray on tans last?

That is why airbrush tanning is so hard to promote. every one thinks that they will be hacked. I am educated in applying sunless spray on many different types of skin. Because I have sprayed many different types of skin. Prep is key, and you buy what you get.
