On arriving I met the wonderful MrsNuEssence Margaret Kelly who let me know about Au Courant Tan, and how it was suited to pale Irish girls like myself and that I would not turn out orange like I had in the past.
Here is a little bit on what Nu Essence has to say about Au Courant Tan:
Au Courant Tan, is the world's first sunless tanning product. It creates the most natural looking tan, giving your skin a healty bronzed glow. For all your special occassions Au Courant tan will give you a flawless tan that fades beautifully and gradually, with no nasty residue. Tan yourself the safe and convient way with an Au Courant spray tan from Nu Essence.Best suited to a paler skinned person or anyone that may be nervous about being too dark.Nu Essence did they're own blog post on how I got on with my tan and pictures you can check out their blog here Nu Essence Blog.
I would like to add this is the first tan that I have had no lingering smells of nasty tan afterwards even during tanning it smelt like bananas. As with every tan you need to look after it with moisturising, 10 days on I am still not back to my natural coloring and its fading evenly.I have in the past had tans where it faded in patches and lots of exfoliation is needed but not with Au Courant.
Nu Essence is a beautiful salon and in a great location, they not only offer tanning but also treatments in nails, waxing, massage etc. They have wonderful staff who are very helpful, I was tanned by Joan who was lovely. You can check out their website for all their treatments or call in if your in Dublin City.
