If your complexion veers closer to ‘silver minnow’ than ‘golden halo’ and you wish to sport a tanned look, the tanning connoisseurs at Goldcoast Tan have just the glam-filled thing you need! Owner Victoria De Lima has an obsessive appetite for delivering a strategically applied spray tan that gives the skin a subtle coat of colour and, of course, has the ability to hide a multitude of sins using the most luxurious products on the market.
Before we get into that, it must be mentioned that Goldcoast Tan is much more than a spray tanning studio – it’s the ultimate destination boutique. So, whether it’s a professional swimwear fitting to create your desired summer holiday wardrobe or your dream tan for that special occasion that you’re after, they’ve got you covered. Goldcoast Tan stocks gorgeous swimwear from brands like Seafolly and Granadilla as well as top-of-the-range tanning products by Fake Bake, Mine Tan, Vita Liberata, Bali Body and more. You won’t find a bigger selection of self-tan, home tan, gradual tan, instant tan and wash-off tan products plus products to prep your skin and prolong your tan anywhere else in Joburg!
Now, back to the spray tans. You can expect to pay a pretty penny with prices ranging from R699 for ladies to R799 for men for a luxury tan, or R499 for a standard tan if you’re on a budget. In our opinion, the luxury tan is the only way to go and is well worth the price tag to take you well beyond the pale. The service is lightning-fast – airbrush pros can deliver an immediate glow in only 15 minutes, which then deepens over the next few hours. After your tan, you’ll understand exactly how Victoria’s foolproof techniques and meticulous attention to detail have won her a loyal following.
Your tan will last 12 to 14 days provided you followed the pre- and post-tan instructions, but we recommend stocking up on some take-home products to make it last even longer – especially if you’re going on holiday or honeymoon. The Mine Tan Coconut is our favourite not only because it smells like tropical paradise, but also because it’s supercharged with antioxidants to keep your skin hydrated and revitalised. Victoria will happily recommend products based on your needs to make sure that you achieve the best tan all year round.
Goldcoast Tan is open from 07h00 to 19h00 Monday to Thursday, 07h00 to 18h00 on Fridays, 09h00 to 15h00 on Saturdays and closed on Sundays.
