Wink Norvell vs. South Seas 'Tahitian Tan' vs. Aviva Labs 'Gimme Brown' Need Advice Please

Okay people.....here's the deal and I know you all been talking about these products in the past but I need advice on all 3 because I need to buy one of them like soon. I've been using Norvell Amber Sun forever and like it and so do my clients. I'm open to using new solutions and I have tried different solutions on myself. So far 2 others are winners on my list South Seas 'Tahitian Tan' and Aviva Labs 'Gimme Brown. With South Seas 'Tahitian Tan' the sales girl said it can be use for all skin tones. So the question is which solution should I buy, the South Seas one or Aviva Labs? Which one do you think is the better one? What are the Pros and what are the Cons on both? I will determin which one to buy based on your answers.

Thanks,
Taryn

I tried Gimme Brown last Thursday night and love it. I'm just not sure which one to buy that one or South Seas Tahitian Tan.

I love the Aviva Gimmie Brown a LOT. They have 3 different types too 8 percent for fair skin 10 and 12 percent.
I use with the mini machine that they sold with it and it provides a flawless look. I really love it.
I dont think I have used the tahitian tan but I have used one called the tahitian tea...from puresunless.com
The only problem I find with this one is that is comes out spotty and I have 2 airbrush machines and have tried both. The sales associate said it is a thicker more luxurious solution and your gun should be set on low settings. I tried this and it still comes out spotty.
Maybe I need to get another gun to use with this solution ?? The one that that company sells? I dont know I wish I could make it work because it is actually one of the best colors ive seen especially for fair skin tones.

Celebrity,

Do you find the Gimme Brown to be darker than they Tahitian Tea. I have been using the tahitian tea and other pure sunless solutions for awhile. I have been experimenting with the Gimme Brown for a couple weeks and the 10% seems way darker than the Tahitian which is also 10%. Which do you like better?

Yes I do find the Gimmie Brown to be darker than the tahitian tea. I find if I do 2 light coats of the tahitian tea it is a nice brown color though...with the gimmie brown it doesent take that much.
I stopped using the tahitian tea because it was coming out spotty. Do you find that it does that?
The gimmie brown is very brown to start but then I notice after the color develops and the bronzer wears off the actual color of the tan is not as brown as it was before.
I think I may actually like the tahitan tea better if I can figure out how to get it to come out smooth instead of spotty.
Any suggestions?
What kind of machine and gun do you use with the tahitian?

Hmmmm....very interesting Celebrity Skin. I've noticed that Gimme Brown is a little darker than Tahitian Tan by South Seas and for me Tahitian Tan fades evenly but I debating what to buy between the 2. Have you used the Gimme Brown on fair skin? If so how does it come out?

Yes I actually use the gimmie brown on myself and I am extremely fair. It comes out great but the fading is not al that great. I notice I start to get white spots in the shoulder declatae area when it starts to fade...not sure why.
As I mentioned before it looks very brown when the bronzer is present but after the first shower it isnt as brown.

I normally use the Turbo Tan with the Pure Sunless products. I have never had a problem with the T. Tea going on spotty. I like the color alot but it's not dark enough for alot of people. The other 2 pure sunless solutions are good too and a little bit darker.

Do you use the 8 or 10 Gimme Brown on your self?
