Yes! Just like in most products, the real cost in tanning lotion is what goes in it. Most would not say that a $0.99 hair conditioner from the drug store would be the same as a $40 one from a professional hair salon. In general, the higher the price, the better skin care and/or tanning technology the lotion has. You can still achieve a tan with a cheap lotion that has a lot of bronzers, but without the added vitamins, moisture & antioxidants. These lotions are lacking most, if not all, skin care. This is where cost could be lowered depending on your needs.
Every lotion is different, just like every skin type. Have one of our salon associates help you find one for your needs and you’ll be much happier with your results and your skin will thank you.
