The original, or "real," penny famously honored Lincoln’s sun-kissed beach bod with a copper silhouette. Get a glow as American as the Beach Boys or Honest Abe with today’s Groupon, which gets you a half-body spray tan at Faux Glow on the Upper East Side for $29 (a $58 value). You can buy up to two Groupons per person to use separately or combine for a full-body tan (normally $90).

Faux Glow works with you to blend a color ideal for your skin type, so you’ll get a customized bronzing with this alternative to tanning booths and cold afternoons on your apartment building’s roof. The organic spray will leave your skin with a healthy, youthful glow. Choose the treatment for your top half and look like you just returned from the Bahamas, or lavish your legs in preparation for your next pants-optional party. Shock friends and strangers by going for a longitudinal split, vividly enhancing your profile while maintaining a lighter side for occasional mime gigs. The talented beauty staff at Faux Glow treat spray tanning as a fine art, not a rough science, earning them top spray-tan honors from Citysearch voters and Allure.

Its skill as surrogate sunbeams has helped Faux Glow become a sun to the stars, called upon to prepare celebs for premier award shows and red-carpet events, as celebrity reviews attest. Your half-body spray tan will take less time than an episode of the cherished sitcom Night Court. You can duck into Faux Glow during a bitter NY winter and emerge 20 minutes later as radiant as an obsessively waxed Camaro. With spring still weeks away, it’s the perfect time to bronze away the winter gloom.

Reviews

Allure magazine lists Faux Glow as a Best of Beauty Award winner, saying:

  • After hanging up our clothes (and every last stitch of our modesty), we stood as she sprayed us with surgical precision. Inch by inch, our lily white complexion developed into a warm bronze, and we couldn't help but gush a little, too: "I look thinner!" We were eager to flaunt our new color at a party the following night. "Did you just get back from a trip?" a stranger asked, while another declared, "You look Brazilian!" (We're Irish.) – Allure

Citysearchers give the tanning salon a near-perfect 4.5 stars, naming it a Best of Citysearch in 2008 and 2009:

  • Everyone was so friendly and Liz went out of her way to make me feel extra special. She gave me the perfect color and it lasted for 9 days (that was an extra perk). – ana0120
  • Meaghan did my tan-she was delightful! I found her to be perfectly accommodating. – ladygator00

Organic Glow (Formerly Faux Glow)

Allergic to the sun but addicted to self-tanning, Jeani Roth founded Organic Glow, formerly Faux Glow—a bronzing studio dedicated to giving clients a UV-free alternative to traditional tanning methods. Since opening in 2003, the business's organic sunless tanners and custom spray-tan services have garnered praise from the likes of NBC's Today and Allure magazine. Jeani spritzes bodies inch by inch during each service—using "surgical precision," according to Allure—and contours faces with her signature sun-kissed glow.

This is in someone's personal apartment. Despite that, she makes you feel comfortable (as comfortable as one can be getting naked in front of a stranger).
