    Still a bit smelly the next day...I think I'm just particularly sensitive to the smell of DHA reacting with skin. The product itself smelled great though.

    DHA always smells like competition to me (in a good way :) )

    Me too! Always gets me in the competition mindset, as weird as that may sound.

    Not weird at all. When I've got an impending comp, I usually break out the scented lotions and such I got at the hotel of my last comp. It places my mind in the groove, so to speak.

    That's what my comp hairspray does for me!

    I did a test run of a new hairstyle before practice, to see if it would stay up, and I guess smelled like hairspray, which made my partner remark, "You smell like competition"

    Well, I just discovered this morning that I am in fact out of (my good) tanner. I guess I'll be buying something at OSB. Protan is good, right?

    You might want to check online too, since stuff sold at competitions has a huge markup. I just ordered a bottle of pro-tan from amazon for under $15 including shipping.

    The problem is I'm leaving in about 15 minutes!

    Attending Holiday Classic this year and booked an airbrush appt with a comp vendor.
    Ha anyone done this before?

    I've never had it done at a comp, but I got one pre-comp the last time I competed, and it was the best ballroom tan I have ever had.

    Um, I think she was looking for a little more detail. ;)

    Probably too late to be helpful, but I've always had good results with protan. Be prepared to look scary dark from the bronzer when you first put it on.

    What about dark skinned people? Do we need a tan too? My pro is mixed race, but he still tans before a comp. I'm Asian and have dark skin and never tan.

    right...race isn't the issue, it is more about how dark you are...

    If I go to the beach for a week, I don't really need to add tanner until Dec. I get dark. But otherwise, I'm pale and need assistance. So agreed, if you are already dark, no matter the race, enjoy.
