Birchbox Breakdown

These super-strength towelettes have all the benefits of the original—they’re portable, easy to use, and citrus-scented—but they’re specifically formulated for medium to dark tan color. Just swipe-and-go for a deep, but still natural-looking glow—no sun exposure required.

How to Use

Apply evenly to clean skin in circular motions. Wash hands immediately and avoid showering for six hours. Reapply as necessary.

Easy and natural
Purchased

These tan towels apply so easy and evenly. This is the best and most natural looking self tanner I have found. Not too dramatic of a color change but gives you a nice glow! Great in the winter time or before heading to the beach.

A Must Have!

I LOVE the ease of this formula! I will continue to re-stock with this product. It may not give the deepest, darkest, dramatic tan but it's a great product to keep around for the times you'd like to touch up or boost your color before a gathering or getaway. I experienced no problems with streaking and the formula doesn't have a lingering smell. This is a MUST HAVE!

Satisfied

I'm satisfied with the product, I'm just more of a lotion gal. It was great and easy to use on vacation and on the go...no waiting time.

Love it

I've been using the Tan Towel for about 5 years now. I admit, when I first heard about it, I was skeptical since I haven't had good luck with self tanners before. I must say, the Tan Towel literally changed that! It gives me that little bit of sun kissed skin without turning my skin bronzy, streaky, patchy much less the palms of my hands orange. It's gives me a perfect balance of sun kissed skin! I have fairly light to light skin that looks naturally tan with the Tan Towel :)

Kinda of Dissappointed
Purchased

A few months ago I purchased this product but in the lighter version and had great success! I got great color from them but wanted a little more. I purchased this and was shocked to find out that after using it I did not see nearly as much color. I'm a little disappointed...I'll have to try another one and see if it was a fluke.

LOVE!!!

These tan towels keep me glowing all year round. I tan very easily during the summer and have found that these enhance my natural tan all year long. My skin feels great after using them too!!

What's different about "Plus?"

I didn't notice any difference between the original and the "Plus Formula." Still, both tan towels worked pretty well as home tanning products. They have less of a bad odor and cause less streaking/orange color than other brands. Still, I don't buy them any more since they're so wasteful and so bad for the environment.

Best self-tan product
Purchased

I've been using this product for years and was so excited to find it on birchbox. By far the best self tanning product on the market. The towels allow for easy, clean application. They provide a nice healthy tan even for my very light skin!

Not dark enough

I have used different kind of self tanners and the wipes are much more effective. With this product I wasn't able to tell I had even used it. Needs to be darker if I would ever want to purchase again.
