Ironic Tanning
Whine  |   Link

Ok this has got to be the funniest thing here. Remember I wrote about how the locals love to use products with skin whitening? Well I completely forgot that our gym has a tanning booth and recently the spa just added tan in a can services to their list of offerings. I have never seen the booth used and our trainers at the gym just got a free tiral of the tan in the can service. I was kind of grinning when I saw my trainer after he got his done. I doubt this is going to be something the locals will be lining up for even if it is the first place in HK offering the service. It's just so contrary to the whole skin care regimen of "whitening" your skin. Now does the gym really know their target audience? Perhaps the gym's market are all the expats living here...but it's kind of a small population and not all of them have the kind of money to maintain that type of service. I'll be curious to see how many folks emerge from the spa with that special kind of "glow." I think for most Asians these things just turn you orange.
