Long-lasting lotions

Does someone know of a long-lasting lotion?

I seem to get people coming in who only want to tan 1 or 2 times a month. Usually they don't seem interested in buying a package, but I've had a few ask me what the "longest-lasting" lotion is.

Naturally, I'd assume it's whatever gets you the darkest, because the tan is going to fade if you don't go often.

I'm still new to this industry...can someone tell me any lotions that are known for their lasting power?

Or a line of lotions?

We are a small business and mainly carry one-time use packets, and a few Swedish Beauty full size lotions.

Re: Long-lasting lotions

Too many factors. Skin type, etc. Then you have the bronzers, you know, the fake tan. In the end, you run a business and clearly if they are coming in only twice a month something is not being done right IF its a tan they are after. Thus the simple answer is that if these people are trying to tan (and not just an occasional relaxing session in some light and heat) they need to come in more. You will not make money selling them a lotion with longer lasting bronzers simply because the body will exfoliate the bronzers in about two weeks, or less, anyway.

In short, they need to tan more often and a better lotion will not make up for that fact.
OMG! I made a post! :)

Re: Long-lasting lotions

i've had the best results with supre's high end...luxx line for faster, darker longer lasting color. the bronzers in the diamond are unreal!!
these you talk of tanning only twice a month...well, its slightly possible....but only in HP applications. certainly not in standard UV beds.

People are not tanning as much as they used to, I have a bunch of people who only tan a few times per month just to keep a little color.
