New Self-Tanning Technology

April 16, 2015 – We’ve just begun testing Eclipse Tan by Keyano.  We were among the very first to receive the world’s first DHA free sunless melanin booster.  Pretty exciting stuff!  It is supposed to gradually increase your skin’s natural melanin so you get a tan that exactly matches what your skin would get in the sun.  If this stuff works we can say goodbye to orange skin caused by traditional self tanners:)

Eclipse TanThere are two products available with the system.  Eclipse Exfoliate is applied prior to getting in the shower.  It utilizes lactic acid to slough away dead skin cells and prepares the skin for the application of Eclipse Tan.

We can already tell you that it definitely doesn’t smell like traditional self tanners.  In fact, it’s quite the opposite – it has a light, delicious smell of creamsicles.

The salon testers are: Jenn, she is using the Eclipse Exfoliate and Tan, Tammy is doing just one arm for a side-by-side comparison, Adena is using her Clarisonic body brush and Eclipse Tan, Lindsay is using a Dermalogica buffing cloth and Eclipse Tan, Abigail is creamy white so it will be interesting and Barbara has several tattoos.

It takes 14 days to see results so we will keep you updated.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it is worth the wait and we can have a natural looking tan without harmful UV rays.

This is the very reason we test products before we offer them to our clients.  Fortunately, most times, products stand up to their claims.  However, this one was an epic fail:{
