Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

I use South Seas now with very positive feedback from my customers..... but I had purchased St. Tropez previously because of it's reputation... but I'm not trilled with their results. Anybody have personal experiences with St. Tropez? I've had a couple customers complain that it faded into blotchiness. Never an orange problem however with either of these products.

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

St. Tropez has to be one of the worst products to spray with. Very "foggy" when you spray, probably down to alcohol in the solution . I hear a lot of people saying it wears badly with patchy fading and I know from personal experience it doesn't suit very fair skins. It's basically a one size fits all brand, although they do now have another option.

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

I use South Seas for some clients, pretty color, but I just don't like that it is only 1 level. Sjolie is what I use overall tho. Novell's venetian is pretty for darker tones, but the company has the WORSE customer service.

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

I've also been playing around with Sol Potion, does anyone have any thoughts on this line?

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

We use Norvell. Venetian is our top seller - including for the booth. Not sure how their customer service is poor as I have always been taken very well care of anytime I contact them for any reason. I have tried almost any that are out there and would not put any others on a paying customer of mine.

Re: UPDATED SOLUTION POLL 2015

I'm currently using Kahuna Bay Tan Melange.
It's SUPER thick, but I have found that it really "sticks" to clients who are somewhat DHA resistive. It's a nice dark brown color & lasts a good 7-8 days. It's the warmest going on too. (They even advertise it as a warm solution )


The first 4 1/2 years (out of 5 years) of spraying I was using EnvyTan and LOVED it. They have recently changed their entire brand and formulation to one solution , and I don't care for it at all. So I have tried 12 different solutions already since EnvyTan has changed. I have stuck with Norvell Dark & Venetian while I have personally tested out solutions to find just the right one. Norvell does have a nice cosmetic bronzer and brown color but that's the only thing going for it for me. It doesn't last long at all!

I have also used and bought some Sjolie, which I regret! Hate it. The smell of it is horrible! Smells like rubbing alcohol. Bronzer is super light (compared to other solution like Norvell) and I never have found that the tan has come out BROWN. The one and only thing that I found that I liked about Sjolie is that it lasted the longest of 7-10 days. People who work out a lot, it's great for.

Still open to try more solutions!
Next is Tampa Bay Tan. Anyone have anything good to say about TBT?
