Sun-Labs Ultra Dark Kit Review & Giveaway

Hi Bellas,



I'm back with another review and giveaway.  This one is for my self-tanners out there.  I had a chance to review the SunLabs Ultra Dark Self Tanning Kit.  I was pleasantly surprised at how great it worked for me and I'm also giving you a chance to win!
Click here to see more!

Check out my video!


I'll say that I had a pretty good experience with this kit.  I've used it for several weeks and it's performed really well.  This is a great option for those of us who want a bronze, healthy tan without the damaging effects of the sun. 

Pros
  • non-streaking
  • applies a nice bronze color, not orange
  • kit includes everything you need to prep, tan, and maintain the color
  • good price for the package
  • available in multiple shades
  • smell isn't that bad
Cons
  • stains hands a lot, you need a good exfoliator to get it off
  • not completely scent free...after the tan develops you smell the scent of the chemicals more 
Would I Recommend:  Yes.  This is the best self-tanner I used so far.  The price is reasonable for the entire kit.  My drugstore tanners cost around the same and they're not as good.  If you're a regular self-tanner I think this is a good choice.

 You can find this product at  http://www.sun-laboratories.net/best-selling-products/sun-labs-beach-bag-ultra-dark-set.HTML
This great kit is on sale for $49.95 (normally $85.95)!!!! 
Use promo code FRSH2010 to purchase the Beach Bag Ultra Dark.  Not only will you get the discounted price but you'll also get free shipping because you watched me review the product!
 
SunLabs has generously agreed to sponsor an UltraDark Self-Tanning Kit for one of my viewers.  Here's how to win!
  • Follow my blog and YouTube
  • Leave a comment telling me why you'd like to win
  • Open to International viewers
  • I'll pick one at Random and announce it Monday on my blog and twitter
FTC Disclosure:  Product sponsored for review.  I am not affiliated with the company and not paid to write this review.  These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

i would LOVE this because i agree, i get more yellow. sometimes when i tan too much in the sun, i tan dirty. like it looks like my skin is dirty but it's actually my tan. so i think this would be awesome to try.

My dad had skin cancer over 25 yrs ago & my mom has been battling it for the past 3 years. I just can't get a tan....it would be foolish of me to chance it. I'd like to win so I could finally have some color & not look like Casper anymore! Thx Sun Labs & Ren!

Winner this product would be great for me as I'm very pale and use to Tan at the salon alot but I've stopped that. I've tried the spay tan but to be honest I hate it. Winning this would be great.

Jennifer said...

I will admit - I am ADDICTED to tanning. I love tanning but I know it's SO bad for my skin... therefore, I'd love to try this out and see if this would be a good alternative! Most self-tanners look orange to me and doesn't last long so I'm still on the look for one.

amy said...

hi renren!
i would love to try this product, because i have heard so many great things about it from youtube gurus. I've always wanted to be tanned, but avoid tanning beds cause of the risk of skin cancer. I have tried drug store tanners, but they do not seem to work :(.

thanks <3

Jess said...

I would like to win this because I like to be tan, but I know that I shouldnt go tanning anymore because it is so bad for my skin. Also, I have never tried a sunless tanner that didn't look orange (which is why I go tanning).

Lucia said...

I'd like to win because i've never used self tanners before and i would love to try this one out.
Thanks for the review!

Victoria said...

i really would LOVE to win this kit!! i always try to be out in the sun as much as possible trying to get a tan but i never do! im quite fair skinned and i burn easily enough in the sun since im irish. my skin peels so much! i also tend to break out like crazy when i go out in the sun so that is also a con. but i recently have stopped tanning overall because i realized how deadly it can be to my skin. my grandmother actually died from skin cancer.. so this kit would be so so so helpful for me and would really boost my self confidence up!! all of my friends were able to go on vacations while i just stayed home during the summer. :( so it would be awesome to go back to school with a nice, healthy, natural looking tan. i really appreciate you having this giveaway because i just don't think tanning is worth it when you can get the same effect from a bottle, without the deadly outcomes. (:

Miss♥Nikka said...

I would love to win this product if it will make my skin look anything like yours. I have to apply tinted moisturizers to my neck and face to make it match up the rest of my body and not look like I photoshopped my own head on me, LOL. It would be great if I could maintain a tan easier this fall!
