Though wrapping oneself in a metallic blanket of aluminum foil achieves the shiny glow of a sunny tan, the silvery hue is one step below the golden pinnacle on the hierarchical pyramid of metals. Today's deal elevates skin to golden peaks: for $20, you get your choice of one month of unlimited tanning, up to and including level-five beds (up to a $74.99 value), or three packets of tanning lotion (up to a $50.97 value) at bosTAN, located in Beacon Hill on Charles Street.
The atmosphere of elegance and serenity inside the salon allows the outermost epidermal layers to relax into a bronzer shade. Build a base tan in a supine position in flat beds, or appreciate bipedalism in a stand-up tanning tube. Individually appropriate light levels (up to level five) can build on basic pales, eliminate pallor, or further darken well-established tans. With the month of unlimited tan cocooning, finish off summer with a season-bridging tone that can carry into the bolder hues of fall fashions, or refresh the fireworks of a Fourth of July tan that’s lost its sparkle.
Those opting for the lotion can select from any combination of three select Designer Skin packets, which supply suppleness and tune skin for clear hue reception. The mint and apple-blossom scent of the Aphrodisiac intensifier satiates even the darkest dermis desires. With a shimmer that mimics soft celestial stardust free of all questionable Jupiterian dust, Luminary’s L.E.D. complex creates luminescence while also saving energy. Masquerade peers past the breakthrough level of bronzing, swathed in a costume of Shea and cocoa butter ideal for dancing with strangers until the mask reveal scheduled for midnight.
Though reviews are limited, bosTAN does get a perfect five-star average from three Yelpers:
Fair-pelted customers choose from a bevy of sun-mirroring options inside the tanning oasis. Amid the interior’s shimmering gold tiles, guests enter Level 1–5 UV beds, inspiring skin to cultivate a bronze hue of its own. Like hand-sculpting one’s own monogrammed towels from marble, spray tanning at bosTAN is a customized process. A technician holds the airbrush tool, releasing the spray exactly where each part of the skin needs it for more effective coverage than a booth-dispatched mist can achieve.
