Like ripened fruits, people with healthy-coloured skin are more likely to be asked to pose for still-life paintings and get picked up at the grocery store. Catch the eye of passersby with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get either 150 minutes of UV tanning or two spray-tan sessions at Tan de Soleil (up to a $68 value). This Groupon is valid at the locations in Calgary, Surrey, Port Moody, Langley, and Vancouver.
Tan de Soleil equips hue heighteners with a Smart Tan–certified staff and the equipment necessary to transform complexions into glows. For a quick coat of colour, opt for two spray-tan sessions, during which a VersaSpa spray chamber opens its doors to awaiting clients and sprinkles a light mist that bronzes skin in a preferred tint and provides anti-aging moisturizers. The treatment lasts just 60 seconds and dries speedily, eliminating the need for downtime before rolling in a meadow of dry-clean-only grass. For a more leisurely route to a lingering glow, clients can opt for 2.5 hours of UV tanning, relaxing in the salon's sophisticated line of lay-down and stand-up devices. Timing varies for the different types of beds, and minutes may be used up faster on premium and stand-up models. All of Tan de Soleil's vanities are fully equipped with complimentary toiletries, making this Groupon an ideal gift for a pallid friend who fatefully missed out on a hotel-crawl in Fiji.
Tan de Soleil
The Smart Tan–certified team at Tan de Soleil assists clients in getting the best out of their experiences by keeping immaculate tanning studios stocked with modern tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Before customers slip into a KBL lay-down bed or a Sun Capsule VHR stand-up unit, the staff provides them with sanitized protective eyewear and towels. They also change the bulbs in those beds regularly to keep them at optimal tanning efficiency.
For UV-free tans, the crew educates its guests about the use of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths for custom tans with solutions that moisturize and nourish skin. These tanning booths can gild tanners in about 60 seconds, but for those who wish to take their time, the studios come equipped with a vanity area. In there, guests lounge and use supplied nail files, hairspray, gel, and beauty products to get ready for the rest of their days. The space also allows for phone conversations so customers don’t have to feel intrusive when making personal calls or leaving in-your-face messages on King Midas’s voicemail.
