For months now I've had a steady stream of tanners coming into my spray tanning salon and leaving 10 minutes later with the colour of their skin in no way different from the one that they came in with.

Welcome to the new era in spray tanning!
The newest thing on the market that is gaining more and more followers is spray tanning with a colorless (clear) spray tanning solution.
Once you've had it, it is hard to go back to the old solution containing bronzer.
