We love a healthy tan here at Spa Week headquarters, so we were eager to test the new self-tanning pads from Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of the JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York.
Aside from the convenience of the individually-wrapped pads (we love it!) the formula is fortified with an antioxidant complex and hydrating ingredients, and promises color that starts developing within just a few hours. Spa Week staffer Erin decided to try it out when she arrived at the office — and we eagerly awaited the end of the day to see how the color developed.
As you can see from her after photo, the pad left a subtle but noticeable glow, and held enough liquid to tan her face, neck, and chest. Dr. Katz recommends 1-3 applications a week to maintain a health tan. By that estimation, one pack of these tanning pads will last you 5-15 weeks.
