Overwhelmed with solution choices! Recomendations??

I am new to the biz. Just got my maximist last week form TBT. I used their 9% that came with the unit and it was pretty good. Not as dark as i'd like it to be, good color, i feel like it's fading pretty fast, tho-i sprayed Monday. Lower smell then i'd had before. No orange. So...looking for something darker..probably a 11-12% with little smell that lasts. I been looking at Sojie and TanEnvy from TBT, or Jamaciametan. Which would you recomend? Thanks so much!

Jamaica Me Tan hands down for me! Love their solutions & body products! Solution smells tropical when sprayed so no "stink". DHA ranges from 8-12% in solutions plus you can order DHA drops to darken the 12% if needed. Good luck w/ your new business!

If I remember right,Jamaica Tan comes from Washington.We are big fans of all the All About Me products. Funny we like the smell because it doesn't smell tropical. Find our men clients aren't in to smelling like fruit.

SJolie is the one for me. I've tried most, not all but most of them and you can't beat their 14% for those than want dark tans scented or not.

I've used jamaica me tan for years, never had a drying issue. My customers dry for about 5 mins, less if I use the dryer attachment on my machine. I use about 2oz per person, so I don't spray it on really heavy. It is very moisturizing so it will feel a little tacky for an hour, like you have too much lotion on. I find the quick dry formulas dry out my skin-just not worth it to me.

bettyboop- As far as trying to choose a solution , just test a lot, weed out the awful ones, then do some side by side comparisons. When I was deciding I would tan one leg with one solution and one with the other, then I could narrow down the better ones. Then once I had it down to about three I tanned some people at work at got some feed back. I found the best ones had more than one active tanning ingredient besides the DHA. I ended up finding a couple I liked, I decided on jamaica me tan based on my clients feedback.

It's definitely overwhelming, there are so many solution companies. Just go through it in an organized way and just find what works best for you over all. Don't worry about trying every single thing out there, there are way too many for that! Sounds like you have it down to 4 already - leave it up to feedback from friends and family. As long as you find the high quality your looking for, your application skills are up to standard and the results look great - your customers will keep coming back.
