Lavish Tan is your answer if you are either stuck in rainy LA and craving a holiday glow OR if you are lucky enough to be heading somewhere sunny and warm for a New Year’s getaway and fear shocking the beach with your paste-y white reflection…

Blake Lively, Before & After Lavish Tan

Owner Kelsey, at work in the office

Located in Venice on Abbott Kinney, Lavish Tan was voted “L.A.’s best organic airbrush tanning studio” by Allure magazine.  We’ve always been a little fearful of spray tans because we don’t want to smell like chicken tandoori  or come out looking orange. Fear not with Lavish Tan.  One of the cute owners, Alex or Kelsey, will be your professional, National Tanning Training Institute certified spray technician,  offering you a choice of 22 fragrances.  Lucy went with the Almond off Kelsey’s recommendation and Mary opted for Milk and Honey.  Also, unlike most spray tans, Lavish Tan is not beta-carotine based solution (made from carrot extracts which makes you orange).  Instead it is a brown sugar based solution which guarantees a golden, brown color!

10% of all proceeds also go to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
