Best Tanning Lotions 2016 Plus Tanning Tips

Sizzle and Shine Best Indoor Tanning Lotion---What is the best tanning bed lotion 2016? Best indoor tanning bed lotions this year? It's different for everyone, as are the beds, but I'm here to help you figure it out. Some brands like Designer Skin give some people a deep, dark tan, while it does nothing at all for others. Some for fair skin; some for dark. It's a bit of trial and error. There are alot of new tanning lotions being released in 2016 and I'll do my very best to narrow them down and find the one that's just right for you. Below you'll find the top lotions and bronzers from each major brand for this year below based on ratings, reviews and lots of personal experience, (I'm a frequent tanning salon visitor starting in the late winter, as is my daughter) along with some products that are 'best kept secrets' and affordable picks. (those products that work best but you rarely hear about)--Plus some of my best tips, my favorite overall lotion picks (no matter what year they were released) and I'll keep adding too and updating as anything new hot lotion comes out and I've given it a try. You'll have the best tan you've ever had and always wanted! If you're a tanner, you know as well as I do, each year brings us brand new products to try so I'll do my best to keep you in the loop every year! Be sure to check out my tips for getting a great tan below (they work and they're easy), avoiding raccoon eyes and the helpful videos for choosing the right bed for your skin color.Best Tanning Bed Lotions Don't miss the new 2016 tanning lotion releases.

My Favorite Non Tingle Lotion--AMAZING Heads up, my fellow tanners---I've been using the Ed Hardy Black Elixir for the past two weeks, (Seen above) both in the tanning bed and outside and it has become my absolute best lotion--I've tried just about every lotion there is, but none--seriously, none has produced faster results than this one.
Before I start with my best tanning tips, I want to let you know how I know about these lotions. I'm lucky enough to have a sister that owns a tanning salon. She gets tons of samples each season and I get to try the ones I want for free. I suggest if you aren't sure or are trying to decide between a couple of new lotions, that you try the samples first. You can find many of them on Amazon and ebay at good prices and it's much cheaper than buying two bottles!--

Now, on to the tanning tips: There's a few things I've learned along the way to get a really great tan and keep it. One--never shower right after tanning. Give your skin at least a few hours before heading straight to the water. Two--use at least two different tanning lotions (once you get a good base tan) and alternate them every couple of days. For example, I use two completely different brands. (One from DS and one from Ed Hardy--right now I'm mixing Bombshell with Black Elixir and it's working great) It makes a difference. Three--turn around the opposite way in the tanning bed by putting your feet where your head normally goes and your head where your feet would normally be. I'm not honestly sure why this works for me, but it does. I do it at least once a week. If I go to the tanning bed three times in one week---I'll lay the normal way twice and the opposite way once. Fourth tip--always put on a good tan extender lotion after tanning. Not just any lotion, but one specific for after tan care. You can wait until you get back home, but try to do it as soon as possible. If you get the right lotion---it will extend your tan. The best tanning extender lotions for me and most of the women at the tanning salon here---Hemp Nation Moisturizer. My fifth and final tip--do not lay in the tanning bed every single day. Let your skin breathe and rest! Tanning too much dries your skin out and you'll have a good, but not so great skin!

Mushroom and funny face characters snuffers for cigarettes.

That's probably what many of you are saying, right? What is a cigarette snuffer exactly? I first found them at the beach looking through all the novelty gifts for vacationers. I picked up this little mushroom shaped gadget with a hole through it. What is this? Turns out it's an amazing way to put your cigarette out without getting your hands dirty or if you need to leave your cigarette to answer the phone, get the door, take something out of the oven---this little gadget is just what you need. They come as different shaped characters, like the mushroom, and different styles too--from brass to crystal. The little hole through the middle is where your cigarette goes--either to put it out or to leave for a second. Women who smoke love these things. No more ashy fingers from putting your cig out in the ashtray! Tons of cool styles and designs below.

Extinguish your cigarette with any of these cool and stylish snuffers--many more down the page as well. Cool novelty gift idea.

I started this page when my own daughter started college. She's now a senior and is graduating this spring. Time flies. I asked her what her favorite gift of all through the years was for her and she said hands down, it was the care packages--both pre-made and handmade. It's like receiving a little piece of home. These are some of the best pre-made gift baskets I have found over the past few years. The 'healthy version' is my favorite, but the ones with all the candy treats were also a hit with my daughter and her roommates. Here are just a few others I like, including the extra energy basket and the healthy mix basket:
