Get ready for the latest and greatest DHA-Free bronzer tanning lotion from Devoted Creations. They have an entire new Pauly D line of products for 2012, but Bronze Beats is the only natural bronzer.
Some tanners can have adverse reactions or allergies to DHA, and some just prefer to go the natural route, but either way this lotion has a lot more going for it than just a famous name.
Here are the main features of Bronze Beats: Multiple Accelerators, RevitaFit, Matrixyl, MelanoBronze Technology, Black Tea Extract, Silk Extracts, and FreshTek.
Basically what these ingredients do as a whole is give you fast, dark tanning results while toning, tightening and smoothing your skin. It contains an anti-aging complex to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the Black Tea Extract is a strong antioxidant that can help reduce blemishes and tiny imperfections in your skin.
The natural bronzers also continue to work long after your session stimulating melanin production to further deepen your tan.
The fragrance of this lotion has been reported as a light coconut scent that is not overbearing and is good for both guys and girls. Normal bottle size is 12.25oz and the full retail price is about $60.
Black Noir is a brand new 2012 tanning lotion from Designer Skin that they describe as a successor to Black 20X.
In you’re not familiar, Black 20X was the original “Black” lotion released a few years ago, but continues to be a best-seller today. It set the bar for other lotions to match, and many tried to, including a bunch that just tried to piggy-back off the success of the name (DS claims that 45 other products with a similar name have entered the market since its debut).
Fast forward a few years and we have Black Noir, a 22X Black Label Private Reserve bronzer lotion that contains ultra-pure DHA and Erythulose to get you super dark. Despite the fact that this product doesn’t have any hemp-based ingredients (which can provide ultimate moisturization) its Magical Silicone Emulsion will leave your skin radiant and silky smooth.
There are also ingredients in this lotion to help produce color faster and provide some anti-aging benefits. DS also boasts that their SunStay Technology and Fade Defying Formula help maintain and prolong the life of your tan.
Black Noir hasn’t been out very long at the time of this writing, but the feedback so far has been very positive. The fact that Designer Skin is positioning this lotion right there at the top among Luminary and Black 20X also adds to its credibility.
This lotion comes in a gold sparkly bottle and has a refreshing citrus scent with a twist. The standard 13.5oz bottle retails for $110.00 and 0.5oz sample packets can run upwards of $10-$15 each.

This indoor tanning lotion has many different levels of tanning accelerators which work with your melanin production center. This feature is great to have in a product because it helps you build a dark sexy tan faster. Another essential item is the DHA and bronzers. Although this product has lower levels of DHA than some others is works well with the natural bronzers implemented to provide a sultry glow. One of the natural items put into this cream is banana fruit extract. This supplement focuses on allowing your body to attain that perfect color you’re itching for. As I’ve mentioned many times before in my reviews, tanning is a great way to look relaxed and sexy but often people don’t realize that it damages, dries out and ages your skin. This is essential to know when bronzing your skin and looking for that perfect item to buy because now lotions contain special agents that help prevent negative effects.

This indoor tanning lotion is one of the top sellers and provides all the ingredients for an ultra sexy dark tan. This product has a special formula which enables more melanin production by allowing more UV rays to penetrate and get deeper into the skin. This ensures that you will be getting the darkest tan possible. When there is such an intense amount of UV light reaching your skin sometimes there is a tendency for the skin to get dry. This tanning lotion has special ingredients that take care of that problem. Paint it Black 50x Bronzer has a unique combination of items to make sure your skin stays silky smooth, moisturized and far from dry. Silicone technology is implemented to prevent dryness and allows skin to feel sexy and young. One important aspect to note is that this product is NOT a tingle tanning lotion.

Supre Go To Black is a tanning lotion that came out in 2011. Two variations of this product exist, one being a “Black Incredible Tanning Concentrate” and the other being an “Incredible Bronzing Concentrate”. They are generally the same product minus one small difference – the DHA Bronzing agent clearly implemented within the Go To Black bronzer lotion. Both items feature Tyrosine and Carrot Oil which help in achieving immediate color. These agents assist in activating melanin synthesis which is generally what enables us to get ultra dark results in minimal time. Argan Oil is responsible for keeping skin moisturized and healthy. It hydrates your body and provides luxurious, super silky, soft-to-the-touch smooth skin. Vitamins A, C & E play their role in these two indoor tanning lotions by protecting against negative aging effects UV rays can cause and increase a youthful, taut, wrinkle-free appearance.

These items work together to create a dark luxurious hue that occurs almost immediately and continues to progress even after UV exposure is complete. Happy Hour Skin Fusion is an ingredient which is responsible for ensuring skin is smooth and taut. It soothes skin after an extensive tanning bed experience. Beta endorphins revitalize skin to make you feel good and healthy all around. When people go to tanning salons a lot they may see evidence of their skin becoming rough, wrinkly, dry and just overall not as appealing as it used to be. UV rays are dangerous and put your skin through an extensive process that it cannot always recover from on its own. This is important to know because you want to then take steps to either avoid this or to treat the condition. A great way to do this is to make sure your lotion has moisturizer in it or that you put some on after the UV exposure. Skin is sensitive and needs to be constantly hydrated. Australian Gold Sol Search uses Bamboo Extract to hydrate and nourish skin to bring it back to life. This is a great ingredient to have within your lotion because it will not only give you super sexy smooth moisturized skin but will also give you a radiant youthful glow.

Devoted Creations Royalty is the ultimate bronzing product out on the market for 2011. It features MelaDark Complex, Nouritan, Renovage Technology, Ideal Fit, Body Fit and FreshTek. The MelaDark Complex unites with skin to produce an unbelievably natural looking tan. You’ll still have the dark hue you’re looking for but it won’t look fake, orange or streaky.

FreshTek is my favorite ingredient that most 2011 Devoted Creations indoor tanning lotions have. It takes charge and makes sure that you smell 100% fresh. It’s main job is to leave you smelling clean and deodorized after a long tanning session. Often people sweat while in a tanning bed and not all lotions provide optimal results immediately, therefore leaving some people to wait a while before they shower. This agent is ideal for situations like that because it ensures that you will not smell sweaty, dirty or unclean. The overall scent is a Pearl Essence which is light and pleasant. Devoted Creations Royalty lotion can be categorized as a Tan Enhancer, DHA-Free Silicone Bronzer and Skin Firming compound. This item comes in a cylinder plastic bottle.

Be-Beautiful Blend is responsible for restoring youth and firmness to the skin. It uses Milk Thistle, Nordic Orange and Magnolia Bark to make skin taut and revive radiance and life to it. Baltic Hydrogel is the moisturizing ingredient implemented within this tanning lotion. It improves skin elasticity and nourishes it by giving it doses of intense hydration. This is important because skin dries out quickly, looks rough, wrinkly and old when not taken care of during and after UV exposure. Doing whatever you can to prevent this would be an essential step.

Australian Gold Global Hottie this is a hot new 2011 tanning lotion. It is considered a tingle but has bronzer in it. An excellent feature of tingle lotions is that you can shower immediately after UV exposure but when you use strictly a bronzer you have to wait a few hours to achieve optimal results before rinsing off. The tingle formula has a unique combination of natural bronzer and intense tingle to create insanely dark tans. When using this type of lotion you should expect skin to get extremely red before getting dark. It is also important to note that while you are in the tanning bed the tingling sensation is not enjoyed by all. Some people find it painful and irritating (such as myself). Initially when using this type of product you will redden but you will turn a dark sexy shade shortly after. Indoor tanning lotions that use tingle formulas provide instant results. The Age Defying Blend used in this item is infused with Vitamin A, E & B5. These agents defend against premature aging while Soft Focus Microspheres assist in decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin is easily hydrated with the Hemp Seed Oil and HydraRich Blend. The Hemp Seed Oil uses fatty and amino acids to provide essential moisture to the skin. The HydraRich Blend has a very similar effect but it supplies hydration because of very different ingredients. These components are Jojoba, Shea Butter and Glycerin and they create a barrier around the skin and lock moisture in. This is an important feature to have because UV exposure in a salon can be dangerous and can have adverse effects on your skin. Some of the negative effects can be dry, rough, wrinkly, old looking skin. Yet these can all be protected against if you find the right lotion and take the proper steps to nourish skin. With this ingredient skin can be left feeling luscious and super soft. Australian Gold Global Hottie comes in a square shaped plastic bottle. It looks like a collage and has a lot going on on its exterior. Colors that can be seen are red, hot pink, white, black, yellow, grey and blue.
