What Do You Look Like With A Tan?

Eric Neher, Brand Marketing & Merchandising Manager

Today’s confession: I am terrified of the sun. Not in a totally freaky way, but in a I-am-blonde-haired-blue-eyed-fair-skin type of way. Needless to say, I am a big fan of sunless tanner (loving my new Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads) and during the warmer months I even dabble with spray tanning. So clearly I got excited when Refinery29 alerted me to the new TanningBooth app.

Since I am well aware of what I look like with a faux glow, I thought it would funny to tan some of my fellow Birchbox staffers. I must admit, these pics did provide some serious satisfaction—once I finally got the thing to work. My hopes weren’t super high because it only cost $1, but I will say that these results took a few days to finagle and a photo shoot specifically to get these head shots (FYI not all photos pan out, and insofar as I can tell, you need to have a background that is really contrasting). But was the time I spent totally worth it? I think so, but I’ll let you be the judge. More importantly, who do you think looks the best with a tan?
