Great Self-Tanner
Purchased

Love this product and recommend it to friends all the time. Great way to exfoliate before tanning, and the packaging makes it very travel-friendly.

Did not notice any difference

I used these prior to being in a wedding to try to even tans lines on my chest and just brighten my décolleté. I was told by my spa that this was exactly what they should be used for. Unfortunately, I didn't notice any color change. I was really disappointed because I really like this skincare line.

not accident proof
Purchased

I have a tendency of messing up self tanners. Somehow or another I always end up patchy. So after reading about tons of different products this one seemed impossible to mess up. But thats wrong. I used this on my face and body, and it looked great on my face. I was super blotchy around my belly though. Just be careful using it

tans well
Purchased

This product will definitely tan you in a natural way but you can still smell the fake tan odor, even the next day. I haven't seen the anti-aging benefits yet but maybe I just need to use it longer.

Absolutely love this product!!
Purchased

I am a sunless tanning fanatic and have tried TONS of products. None of them work as well as these glow pads! I love the color, its lasts, and it looks very natural. TRY THIS!

My summer staple for keeping color in my complexion
Purchased

I use these pads faithfully from May-Sep - giving me a "got a little sun on my lunch hour" look. The color lasts about 3 days for me, so I go thru about 2/week. The first day is a bit bold, so I sometimes tone it down a bit with sheer powder foundation, but days 2-3 are PERFECT. The more you use the towelette on your face, the deeper the color. For less color, just wipe a few times and toss the towelette. For deeper color, use all over face/neck until you feel the towelette has nothing else to offer. Experiment on a Saturday - see results on Sunday and learn...

Love these!
Purchased

I have been using these for over a year and its still the best face tanner I can find. I have to use them twice a week to make the tan last through the week. Easy to use and great to bring on vacation.

This is the only self tanner I've found that gives me a great, natural glow. Absolutely love it, holy grail product for me.

Love the Glow Pads!
Purchased

I always make sure I have these available. Can't believe the difference in my skin tone/texture, and the natural-looking tan I get that lasts for a few days. I use 1 packet per week on my face, neck, shoulders, and use whatever's left on my hands for the anti-aging.

Takes a little getting used to then AWESOME.

It took me a few tries to get used to these and now i'm in love. I recommend keeping the body towel folded, start on larger areas of the body (legs, arms) and then work it into the rest unfolding as you go!
