But I will give you three categories that you can search from here. Orange button. Submersible tans, syn-tans, spray-on(or paint-on) tans. REAL tanning will require a shaving machine purchase. Without shaving, you are only going to get a quick, half a--ed tan, that will only tan the surface. Proper tanning also requires a pickle, to achive a TRUE tan. Oiling is also a must. Quick and easy has its rewards, but quick and aint true tanning.

McKenzie Tan
