There are easier ways to get a tan than replacing your bed with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Tickle yourself tan with today's Groupon to Unique Tan, with locations in Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Mission Viejo, San Clemente, and San Marcos. Choose from the following options:
• For $29, you get one custom airbrush tan (a $60 value). • For $29, you get two Unique Excellence booth spray tans (a $66 value). • For $29, you get one month of unlimited ultra tanning (an $89 value).
At Unique Tan, one of the area's largest providers of spray tanning, trained bronzing experts airbrush butterscotch toppings onto pale pelts with spray-tan booths and deluxe beds. Disrobe for the custom airbrush tan that uses Unique Tan's proprietary nutrient-rich formula, Unique Excellence, to coat the skin in a paraben-free solution of organic aloe vera, essence of berry, and added collagen. The fast-drying, minimal-odor formula is also used in the two Unique Excellence booth spray tans. The formula contains erythrulose, which can produce a longer-lasting bronze glow, and, because it's alcohol-free, helps keep skin moisturized and streak-free.
Alternately, clients can opt for one month of unlimited ultra tanning in multiple elite beds, which offer air conditioning, 1,000-watt high-pressure facials, cool misting H20, and aromatherapy. Inside the Sun Board XTT four-sided bed, cool air showers dance on faux-sun-kissed skin that reposes on the body-contouring surface—a wide-open, futuristic-looking space that prevents claustrophobia and accidental time-travel. The state-of-the-art European tanning beds similarly heighten the relaxation with surround-sound stereos, adjustable facial bulbs, and voice-guided systems that respectfully hoot and holler when necessary.
Though Unique Tan sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Every salon claims that their tanning formula is one-of-a-kind. But at Unique Tan, it's actually true—owner Sherrie Lee Meredith developed it herself. Her signature spray-tanning blend, Unique Excellence, tints skin with a paraben-free solution of organic aloe vera, berry essences, and a firming serum to stave off the signs of aging. The formula also contains erythrulose, which can produce a longer-lasting bronze glow, and, because it's alcohol-free, helps keep skin moisturized and streak-free. The salon's Smart Tan–certified staff uses this in both automated booths and custom airbrushing sessions, which harness the steady hand of a tanning artist to ensure tans completely cover skin and finally even the score with haughty bronze statues.
The salon also offers traditional UV-tanning beds, which contain comfort-adding amenities such as air conditioning, aromatherapy, adjustable facial bulbs, and easy-to-follow voice instructions. Clients can enhance their tans with the salon's line of tan-accelerating products, which extend the life of each tan by keeping skin moisturized and healthy.
