In the lead up to my Wedding in Ibiza...

"In the lead up to my Wedding in Ibiza I really wanted to ensure that I had a base tan to avoid any potential unsightly burning in my wedding photos and to also give me a head start on looking bronzed and feeling good. I purchased a block of sunbed minutes from Shwe Tan and had one sunbed a week in the 2 months leading up to my wedding. The prices are extremely reasonable and I love the sunbeds, they are really comfortable with lots of features and a great sound system! One of my favourite things about Shwe Tan is that they reward good loyalty too and they are the most friendly and approachable place I have ever used. On top of sunbeds they offer a wide range of other services too, my husband even used them for threading his eyebrows before the big day! I would highly recommend Shwe Tan for all your pre wedding pampering!"

I have been going to Shwe Tan for almost two years now and they never fail to disappoint...

"I get spray tan once a month by Tasha or Lindsay and I'm always left with a natural look which is great for when I go out. I have also tried party lashes from Shwe tan by Carla, and they were a great extension to my own lashes that lasted for 5 days, I would definitely get this done again. I would highly recommend Shwe Tan."

I tried the Sun Angel for the first time a couple of weeks ago and loved it!

"I have used it twice since then and each time I am even happier with my tan! I have been on other 'normal' lay-down and stand-up sunbeds and there is always the question of 'how many minutes?' But with the Sun Angel everyone goes on it for 20 minutes and you use a scanner that scans your skin and only gives you the safe amount of UV for your skin type so that you don't burn! I also noticed that after using a tanning accelerator cream, a few days after my Sun Angel session I could still see my tan developing! It's such a relaxing sunbed too, because you are on it for 20 minutes you have the time to I relax and you can plug your own music in (with iPod or phone)! I would definitely recommend the Sun Angel!"

Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments

"I have been having Wrinkle Injection Fillers for the last 7 Years, and for the last few times I have had it done, I wasn't happy. I was very happy when Shwe Tan introduced it into the Salon. Nikki, who is the Nurse Practitioner that carries out the procedure, is lovely, extremely professional, and explains and gives enough feedback, to make you feel comfortable with what she is doing and the effects of it. And for someone like myself who has a phobia of needles, this is not a painful treatment at all, I do think this has a lot to do with how advanced and experienced the Nurse Practitioner is. A week after having my treatment, I am wrinkle free and have a nice natural lift, I am so so pleased with the results, and I certainly have found where I'll be coming for future treatments."

I have used literally every shop in Harlow and this is definitely the best!

"I have used literally every shop in Harlow and this is definitely the best, I won't go to any other sunbeds now. It's really clean and bright and all the staff there are so friendly and welcoming. I love the Sun Angel, people always comment on how tanned I look after just one session. The stand up and lay down beds work really well too, not like a lot of the shops that lie and say they've got new tubes, and you can't even see a difference in your colour after using it. Would definitely recommend these sunbeds."

Excellent Quality Salon

"I have used Shwe Tan various times throughout the last couple of years and felt it necessary to write a review. Firstly for my congratulations to the staff and establishment for their thoughtful and professional service. I have been in many sunbed shops over the years some of which I was allowed to go on for ridiculous amounts of time and not have to fill in any forms, my health and safety was never considered - This is not the case in Shwe Tan. All staff followed procedure and I was always advised on usage of the sunbeds and what would best be suited to my skin tone. As for the shop itself and the cleanliness of the sunbeds it is immaculate. Prices are very reasonable and there are always deals on and a whole range of other treatments including Gelish Nails, Eyebrow threading, spray tans, eyelash extensions and plenty of other things. I will be a customer for life, can't wait for my holiday treatments with the help of this shop. Highly Recommended and Well Done!"

Brilliant Eyebrow Threading

"The lady is very gentle and it's the least painful threading I've ever had (even better than the London Salons I've used). I've used the Sun Angel here too, it checks your skin first before you get on and adjusts itself to your own skin type so it's a safe bed with very good results. I found the salon very clean, hygienic and comfortable with lovely staff who make you feel really welcome. Would definitely recommend."

Best Tanning Salon by Far, with Friendly and Helpful Staff!

"I have tried lots of tanning salons and this is by far the best. I love having a spray tan here as you do not get that horrible orange look, it's a lovely natural brown like you have just come back from holiday, it also does not have the horrible fake tan smell as they add scents to the tan (and you can choose the scent you prefer). The staff are lovely and make you feel at ease if it is your first time getting a spray tan. I also love the Sun Angel sunbed; you don't burn on it as it measures what type of skin tone you are before you get on. You look brown after one go. My favourite tanning shop by far."

Brilliant Helpful Staff, Lovely Clean Salon. Would Recommend.

"I have used this tanning salon many times now, and don't think I would use any other one in Harlow. This tanning salon clearly beats all others in Harlow, the staff are all very well trained and polite, they make an effort to get to know their customers on a first name basis and offer advice that is key to you as a person. It's very very clean. All the equipment is outstanding quality. I have had numerous spray tans here as they are really good plus you can pick your choice of fragrance so you do not get that initial fake tan smell that you get with other spray tans. Staff are really friendly too. Nice natural colour with no streaks. have not tried the Sun Angel yet but have heard very good reviews about it."

The Sun Angel

"After walking past, I thought I would give this new Sun Angel bed a try. I came off the Sun Angel and looked a lot browner than I usually do when coming off of a normal sun bed. I was even more pleased the next morning as I was darker! Before trying Shwe Tan, I used to have 3 sun beds a week elsewhere (bad I know!). I now have one Sun Angel a week, so I'm also saving money! I highly recommend the Sun Angel, it's so much safer than any other sun bed, and also gives you a much deeper tan that lasts longer."

Great Spray Tans from Experienced and Friendly Staff!

"I have never been a great fan or user of spray tans in the past as I am very fair and have always had a fear of being orange from fake tans! I have used Shwe Tan a number of times for spray tans and can highly recommend it. All the spray tans I have had here have left me looking like I have a light glowing, fresh tan (people always ask if I have been away, but I have never been the nice golden colour I get from a spray from the sun!!!) The scents are lovely and fresh without the tell-tale biscuit fake tan smell. The girls are really friendly and put you straight at ease with light chatter that helps you to forgot you are in your birthday suit! I have had a few sunbeds which are also great (esp. the sun angel for pale girls like me!). If you're looking for a great spray for a special occasion or just to make you feel special during miserable times then this is the place for you!"

Nothing Comes Close to the Tan I had at Shwe Tan

"I went to Shwe Tan for a Spray Tan when I was in Harlow Visiting my family. It was the first time I had ever had one and I was really nervous. I have to say the staff where so welcoming and the lady who carried out my tan made me feel so comfortable and was so lovely to talk to. The salon was very well done out and very very clean. Since then I have tried a few more salons and tans as I don't live near Harlow and nothing comes close to the tan I had at Shwe Tan and the service, just wish I lived closer."
