What if we could promise you a cute, rich boyfriend, the perfect wardrobe and a realistic-looking summer tan without the harmful UV rays? Okay, we admit it – we can’t promise you a wealthy husband or a closet full of fabulous designer duds – we can, however, guarantee that you can achieve a gorgeous, faux summer glow that would make even the most devout beach bums envious – without damaging your skin.

Mystic Tan, the popular brand that took sunless tanning to the next level during the past decade, introduces its newest products for spring 2009. Containing a slew of ingredients that promise to deliver an authentic-looking tan without the slightest tint of orange, Mystic Tan’s newest formulas are definite must-haves for spring.

Their Sunless Tanning Spray, one of the brand’s most well-known and best-selling products, packs a glow-getting formula – without leaving any telltale streaks.

Their newest self-tanner, Sunless Tanning Lotion, is simple to apply, blends evenly and moisturizes the skin. The Mystic Tan spring line also includes the Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer Face SPF 15, which combines convenient color with sun protection and essential vitamins and anti-aging minerals. There is also a Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 for the body, which gradually builds up a believable-looking color.

We’ll be giving away Perfect Tan Kits (valued at $54), containing Sunless Conditioning Complex for Body, Sunless Tanning Spray and Sunless Enhancing Moisturizer for Body to five lucky Beauty News readers. Just send an e-mail to with “Summer Glow” in the subject line by Thursday March 26th and include your name, phone number and e-mail address in the body of the e-mail.
