I'm pale.  And I like it that way.  Call me vain, but I fear the sun.  I'm an SPF100 kind of girl who shuns wrinkles and wants to look as young as Christie Brinkley when I'm 50.  But when summer roles around and I break out the shorts and sundresses I always feel like something is missing--a tan.  So I turned to the Berry Tan Girls of Hammonton to help me achieve a healthy summer glow from a spray tan.

Luckily I didn't have to experiment alone.  I convinced resident SoJO On the Go party man Marc D to give it a go too.

The Berry Tan Girls of Hammonton, Toni and Colleen, arrived to SoJO studios earlier this week with their mobile spray tan booth.  Less than 45 minutes later Marc and I went from pasty to praline, lol.  The color was noticeable immediately, and as the day wore on my glow gradually increased in intensity.  I almost didn't recognize myself but the compliments were pouring in.

I usually steer clear of spray tanning because of the harsh chemicals, and frankly, because my skin has oranged in the past...not a good look.  But Berry Tan Girls use vegetable-based, all organic color pigments.  In fact, all the ingredients are PETA approved!  So there was little to no risk of ingesting any unfavorable fumes, and I became bronzed not fake-baked.







Here's Marc D's before and after.  We were both immediately pleased with the results.
