Before I take any trip where I will inevitably be wearing a swimsuit, I always start to panic about my skin.  More specifically, my tan.  I went to college in Florida and loved having sun kissed skin. A few years, a move to Georgia, and an office job later, you’d think I avoid the sun like the plague.  I do love the sun, but I don’t get out much and I have pretty pale skin.  To get a little glow and avoid the bed, I usually opt for a spray tan.  Before our recent trip to Hawaii however, I decided to forego my usual spray tan and do a couple sunbed sessions at my local Palm Beach Tan location.  I didn’t want to be SUPER dark, so a couple sessions was all it took to make me feel ready.

I do not tan regularly.  I usually do a couple sessions before a big event or a vacation, both of which are rare.  So I’m really not any kind of expert, but I do like the way it makes me feel to tan.  Tanning, after all – whether a spray tan or a sunbed tan – is also about how it makes you feel…more confident and attractive or whatever it may be for you.

I don’t like to be super tan.  And as you can tell, I’m not.  I just like a little glow.

 I’ve mentioned before that when I tan, Palm Beach Tan is my favorite place to go.  I’ve tried other places and had terrible experiences so I’m a loyal PBT fan now.  So when they asked me to test out the Premier Collection of lotions, I was super excited.  I don’t traditionally do reviews, but PBT is kind enough to be giving away a set of their Premier Collection lotions and cute clutch to house them all (see image below), so I’m going to tell you a little bit about what I thought of each item I tried.

Facial Maximizer

BB Ultra Radiance Céme

Perfect Clarity Age Defying Complex

I LOVED the formula of this product.  It instantly made my skin look smoother and my pores look smaller.  It smells nice and is lightly moisturizing without feeling too heavy for your face.  I don’t tan my face because I have sensitive skin.  I actually use an SPF on my face if I’m going to tan.  The result is that my face is always shades lighter than the rest of my body.  But if you tan your face, I feel comfortable saying that you will like this product.  I might start using it every couple of times I tan.

Black Bronzer

Ultra Luxurious Black 50 Carat Bronzing Elixir

Diamond Dust Complex

I really enjoyed this lotion.  It went on nice, smelled nice, and made my skin feel softer instantly.  I don’t go for tanning lotions that have that, you know, tanning lotion smell.  This doesn’t have that.  The only thing that I didn’t love about this product is that it took a really long time to get product to come out of the pump.  If you use it, it would probably be beneficial to make sure that you get some of the product out before you are at the tanning salon.  My bed started without me before I even got any product – let alone got the product on.  So just a heads up to you.

Tan Extending Moisturizer

Ultra Luxurious Hydration Body Lotion

With Color Last Complex

I love this after-tan moisturizer.  It’s my favorite product in the set and I actually bought it for myself before PBT sent it to me to review.  I tested it out in the store and felt like I really needed it.  It’s intended to help extend your tan.  You use it immediately AFTER you tan and it helps your tan last longer.  Before I bought this product, I never really used anything like it.  Now I won’t go back.  One of my favorite things about it is that it’s relatively light.  After you tan, the last thing you want is a heavy lotion that’s going to slip around and make you feel gross.  This blends right in and doesn’t feel slimy (you know what I’m talking about).

PBT Permier Collection Lotion Set

If you want to test these products, I’ve got good news for you!  One lucky follower will be randomly selected for a Premier Collection lotion gift bag (a $300 value!) containing either a Diamond Dark Bronzer or Intensifier (I got the Bronzer), a tan extender and Facial Maximizer BB Creme, all in a fashionable Premier Collection clutch.

    This summer I pledge to be a shade more responsible about tanning. I love love the sun and getting an awesome tan however after having melanoma twice I sadly can’t risk it anymore and it has really done damage to my skins appearance. But with places like Palm beach tan I can get a spray tan to feel more confident and not have all the risks of the sun.

    This summer, I pledge to be a shade more present! I want to ‘be in the moment’ more, enjoying life & not worrying about all this things I have on my to-do list! I really want to spend more time unplugged from my electronics too.

  23. 06.15.15 / 2:13 am

    I quit tanning a long time ago, then only tanned again just before our wedding. I generally avoid the sun and hide anywhere we are now, so I’m not too worried. I did enjoy using nice products when I tanned though, and these sound great!

    This summer I pledge to be a shade more confident, I need to do some work on loving myself and the way I look on the outside to make me feel more beautiful on the inside. Beauty to me, means that you love skin you’re in and I unfortunately lost sight of that for a little while. <3
