I never was a fan of long sessions on a tanning bed, so high quality tingle tanning lotions is always the best choice for me. In case you don’t know, those are the ones that increase your blood flow, so you’re feeling that ticklish or even burning feeling. I’ve been a user of a tanning bed for about 6 years now, and I started with regular bronzers. But I learned to love that hot feeling and the fact that I can leave my tanning salon earlier with tingle lotions.
My Top 5 Tingle Tanning Lotions for Tanning:
Designer Skin Ruby
This one is my personal best one. A secret of the brand is using both capsaicin and licorice in their ingredients, which makes me feel like I’m not just burning, I’m also cooling a bit. This is an interesting sensation, but it would cost you about $60. This is not a cheap product, but it’s worth trying at least once.
Jwoww Mad Hot Tingle Bronzer
This one is for people who still care about their skin. It will make it drier, but thanks to Shea butter and black currant oils, you won’t feel that dry after. It is indeed quite fast, I would even say that it beats Skin Ruby with that. A big minus for me was that I noticed my skin is even more red than usual, which at first frightened me. But maybe this is just my personal reaction to tyrosine melanin.
Ed Hardy Obnoxious
I’m not that big of a fan of Ed Hardy, but this lotion is definitely something. I like the hot way you feel, but extra vitamins (C and E) that it includes do the really good job protecting my skin. I would recommend this one even for beginners, as it’s not that spicy. It would cost you about $16, which is a good price for Hardy’s lotions.
Devoted Creations Trinity XS
As for me, this one feels even hotter than famous BombShell, and that tells you something. I wouldn’t recommend this one for beginner users, but it’s a good choice for a pro. It starts working immediately, so you will notice that you’re getting tanned even before you make it on your tanning bed. It’s not really for people with soft skin, but it has some great anti-aging ingredients in it.
Tan Asz U FIRE IT UP
This one is paraben-free as well as DHA free, so if you’re looking for a healthy solution, here it is. Recently I switched to this after I got a little bit tired and decided to give my skin a break from tougher stuff. It’s only $19, but it could really make your tanning sessions easier. I also noticed that my buttocks, which are usually hard to get a tan on, are getting tanned fairly easily with this one.
What To Look Out For Before you Buy
It’s really important that you choose a tingle lotion carefully, and run test drives before you apply one on a larger part of your body. Tingle tanning lotions usually have Benzyl Nicotinate or Methyl Nicotinate in them, which cause that feeling. If you’re new to those, you have to remember to moisturize your skin before and after tanning (especially after). You should also use base tan, just to make sure you won’t stay red after a session. Use tingle lotions carefully and maybe consider some softer ones, like Fire It Up. It would be better for you to reduce the time of your session too, you really shouldn’t spend that much time there with tingle lotion on.
