Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™

Birchbox Breakdown

Much like competing in the Indy 500, applying sunless tanner is typically best left to the professionals. Not so with these revolutionary towelettes. Unlike many faux-glow lotions, these single-use wipes create a streak-free, non-Oompa-Loompa-looking tan. The perfect addition to your carry-on, this travel-sized kit contains 2 Alpha Beta Glow® Pads for Face and 2 Alpha Beta® Glow Pads for Body to help you score a flawless finish.

How it Works

Each wipe has major science behind it. First, soy protein kick-starts collagen production and activates the body’s own melanin, so the color you get is completely customized. Microencapsulated DHA allows the pigment to develop over time and also ensures an odorless, streak-free application. Alpha & beta hydroxy acids exfoliate, tighten pores, eliminate blackheads, and help fade existing sunspots (whew!). Finally, vitamin D works as a topical supplement—no seasonal affective disorder here!

How to Use

Apply to dry, clean skin using small circular motions to avoid missing any spots. For light color, perform one circular rotation; for medium color, do two to three circular rotations; and for dark color, repeat circular rotations until the pad is completely dry. Wash hands immediately after use, or use gloves while applying.

Good product, a little streaky if you don't exfoliate before hand. Overall, I would definitely buy this product again for sure!

awesome product

I really like these, they leave a nice tan for a couple days after application even after you shower, glad I found them. Just pricey though :(
