Give your complexion a tawny glow with Comodynes Hydra-Tanning Face Moisturizing Summer Glow.

Birchbox Breakdown

Orange streaks are the telltale sign of a self-tan gone awry. Happily, this Spanish brand’s genius towelettes are designed to give you uniform all-over color. A bestseller in Europe, they landed on our shores just in time for bikini season. These single-use wipes deliver a natural tan on face and body that’s more intensely bronze than the brand’s regular self-tanners. Even so, the formula adjusts to your skin tone, so you don’t have to worry about ending up with an un-matching tan.

How it Works

Made of natural viscose fibers, these napkin-sized towelettes come pre-soaked with a paraben-free, moisturizing formula that works with the natural proteins in your skin to give you a convincing tan. Dehydroxiacetone—a naturally occurring sugar with a fancy name—acts as a pigment-depositing agent, while transcutol helps with penetration. The individually wrapped wipes offer a safe alternative to sun bathing or (worse yet) lying under a tanning bed, and they’re also way easier to use than messy bottles of lotion.

How to Use

One towelette should be enough to cover your whole face and body, though you can use two if necessary. Run the towelette over your bare skin, taking care to avoid your delicate eye area. Wash your palms and nails carefully afterwards, and wait at least ten minutes before showering or getting dressed. The results will appear in about three hours. To maintain your tan, reapply every three to four days.

Active ingredients: Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), Transcutol

Good color, but....

Very streaky. I had to wear jeans for 3 days. Ill stick to spray from now on. One was not enough for entire body.

Finally a non streak tanning product. Love the wipes. They cover evenly. I mailed a couple to a family member to try!

Great Product

I love these. I found the application easy and I haven't noticed any streaking. Of course, being a man and not shaving my legs may help in the even-looking application. The only thing I'd beware of next time is that feet seem to absorb the product better than the rest of the leg (i.e. my feet are unusually "tan"). Next time, I'll know.

Sort of blotchy

It is easy to apply but hard to tell if it's even or not and the color does not last long.

the worst streaks!

I have tried this twice now, and both times, it streaked horribly! The first time (after putting on moisturizer), I tried to use one cloth for both legs and figured I had wiped too hard in some places--the streaks were so so bad that they looked like I purposefully made lines up my legs. The second time, I only tried it on the bottom shin part of both legs, to ensure I had enough to avoid streaks, and it still was streaky and splotchy in spots.

Beware!

This self-tanner left me completely streaky! I was happy I tried it a week before the wedding I was attending, otherwise, I would have looked awful!!

Great Color, but Streaky

I love the color I get with these towelettes, but no matter how many times I've tried, I can't use these without looking uneven and incredibly streaky.

LOVE!!

Absolutely love these little self tanning towelettes!! It does the job instead of going to the tanning bed. Just make sure to take your time when applying, if not it will leave mild 'streak' marks. But other than that they're perfect!...Enjoy :)

Easy Tan On The Go!

These towelettes really do work. They're super easy to use. Just open the package, unfold the towelette, and begin wiping all over the area you want tan. Of course it's always best to shower first and exfoliate a little even with a wash cloth to remove lotions and such. I've been using these for years and they're perfect to travel with. You will not look orange. Just a little golden.

I purchased this self tanner after receiving it in a birchbox. These work good and the color is even and isn't orange looking like most others. The smell is pleasant and isn't stinky.
