I love looking golden brown all year. Shimmer Salon is a great way to help me maintain that look. Nice salon, clean environment, reasonable prices and nice staff.

i've always been a skeptic on spray tans due to the possibility of looking like an orange. i've tried several other tanning places and finally found my favorite at Shimmer. their tanning solution is not orange at all. in fact, it's golden. with the help of the staff, i was able to get a perfect tan without any streaks or blotches. my tan lasted over one week. it's definitely worth it. if you decide to check it out, make sure to browse their clothing sections. they've got some really fun stuff: dresses, bathingsuit, jewelry and sportswear. i picked up some fun sportswear and bathingsuits that you can't find elsewhere in the city. i highly recommend shimmer to anyone who is considering an alternative and healthier way to tanning.

Pros: best tanning and shopping

.

Nice staffs, Gap price for stylish clothes. I got a lot of my clothing from them, and I always get compliments whenever I wear thier clothing. The spay tanning technique is much better for my skin, and it always look golden brown not orange red. Feel very good with my look everytime I step out from the shop. It's my one stop pretty shop.

i like this place. I've never had a bad tannign experience and the little boutique feel is cute and a good way to spend some time before or after an appointment. Prices are reasonable and it's a good location for right after work.

Pros: location, atmosphere

I've only been here 3 times, but each time was very quick and turned out great. The staff was friendly and informative, the first time I had several questions and they had even had a video with instructions/suggestions which was nice. They have different levels of color and are good with their recommendations to match your skin tone. the location is close to the financial district and perfect to visit right after work.

If you are attracted to the finer things of life then you will appreciate Shimmer. In addition to spray on tanning they offer an assortment of coof stuff . I particularly loved my Brazilian swim suit last summer. To stay in touch with style and things I recommend checking in to see whats the newest and hottest!

I've tanned here a couple of times now, and really enjoy the experience and the results. The staff were super helpful and friendly, making the first time really comfortable, making the repeat a sure thing. They also carry some really great clothing lines for men and women, so the second time tanning, I went a little early to do some shopping (and trying items on pre-tan). I really appreciate the nearby parking, so going downtown isn't a hassle.

The staff is what makes Shimmer really shine. They are patient, friendly, and eager to help. The facilities are clean and spacious and the whole procedure is quick and easy. There is a choice between instant tan or a clear option, which reveals your tan a bit later--a great choice for those lunch-time sun sessions. They offer package deals and even have specials for those who like their tan at lunchtime.

PROS: Clean, Wonderful Staff, Great Tan
CONS:

The staff at Shimmer were very friendly and supportive when I walked in. I told them that this was my first time getting a spray tan and that I was scared it would mess up. They reassured me about everything and explained the whole process in detail. The place was really clean and well organized. I would recommend this place to people who want to try spray tanning for the first time. The only hard thing is to find a parking spot.

This is not the conventional way to get a tan, but it is worth the time and the effort. It's a non-toxic and simple soltution that adds a little color into your world as the fog rolls in and out of the San Francisco summer. The staff at Shimmer explain the process and assist you every step of the way.

I have been to many tanning places and found this one the best. You can also do some shopping in the store after tanning! Keep up the good work.

I had my first Magic Tan at Shimmer and I loved it! The staff is very helpful and they even called me a few days later to follow up on how the my tan was holding up. This is a great place for a healthier tan! I highly recommend it.

This is a great place to get a quick, UV-free tan! The environment is very relaxing and the tanning booths have the most spray heads than anywhere else. If you've never done spray tanning before, it might take a couple of trips to perfect it, but it's definitely worth it! (The key is lots of exfoliating beforehand. I recommend Clinique's Sparkle Skin.) And the downtown location is super convenient! And if you need advice ask Rick, since the other girls are kind of stupid and won't be that helpful.
