Streaked, Splotched, and Disappointed

I was so excited to try Brownberry when I read the reviews, but I was totally let down by the outcome. I must say, the owner was very sweet (which made me want to like it even more), but I couldn't believe how bad the outcome was. I had huge sections of my legs that were totally untanned and my fingers, toes, and bottome of my feet were dirt brown! The owner even tried to fix the tan the next day, but it only made it worse (white patches remained, feet got darker). I think the problem may be a mix of clear solution (so you can't tell if you've missed areas) and a VERY dim area that she sprays in (I had to take her outside to show her how bad the streaking was). It would be awesome to have a great stain-less, no-scent spray tan, but it doesn't look like this is the answer.

As a spray tan skeptic I was unsure if Brownberry would live up to its name but it actually was amazing. I was obsessed with myself all week!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
