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

Birchbox Breakdown

Over the years, we’ve amassed quite a repertoire of specialty skills, from our Excel prowess to our ability to stand on our head. Next on our list? Mastering the art of the streak-free self-tan. Happily, we’ve got this Spanish brand’s genius towelettes to help us out. They’ve been a hit in Europe since their debut, and we’re happy to welcome them to our fair shores. Great for all skin types, they deliver a uniform and natural (read: not orange) tan on face and body. The formula adjusts to your skin tone, so you don’t have to worry about an un-matching tan.

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, making sure to cover all surfaces evenly. 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

Definitely need 2 per use.
Purchased

If you are trying to use one wipe on your entire body it just isn't moist enough. I started using two and my method was to start at my toes and work my way up one side of my body with one wipe and repeat with a new wipe on the other side. These were enough for a February/March "tan" in Northwestern Pennsylvania where a dark tan would look odd. I am going to try the "INTENSE" next for my upcoming trip mid-April to San Diego. Oh, I didn't mind the scent and they didn't leave me looking orange. :)

Nice color
Purchased

I like the color that these wipes give. But I have to use 3 wipes to cover my entire body. I've also had some issues with streaks. I think I would like it a lot if I were better at applying it evenly.

Simply not tan enough
Purchased

This product would be awesome if you could see your progress. Because I could not, I often ended up with streaky legs and too much or not enough on my arms.

Fair skinned friend
Purchased

I have very fair skin, and tend to burn easily in the sun..so I'm always looking for something to help out without over exposure to the sun, just to have a tan... I have used Comodynes self-tanning towelettes on numerous occasions and love them.. Work well with my skin tone easy to use and I have had no smearing or lines .. Last for several weeks and then I just reapply as needed ... 2 towelettes will cover my entire body!

Meh

I found this product to smell nice and go on easily. However, I was very disappointed to find it left my legs streaky, uneven and sort of orange. I used one wipe per leg figuring it would help give better coverage. I wouldn't purchase this item.

Nice color very streaky

I thought that these cloths were very easy to use... however, the color was extremely blotchy. I'm sure I could have done a better job applying it but it was extremely obvious that the color was not even. I would much rather use a lotion that way I can feel that I've applied it all over.

Just another self tanner...
Purchased

I've tried numerous self tanners always in hopes that it will be THE ONE that changes my life. Over the years, self tanners have definitely improved, especially in smell, and this one is no exception. It definitely doesn't smell as bad as some other self tanners, but there is still an odor that lingers especially if you do the self tanner in the morning before you start your day. On the plus side, not only does the tanner dry very quickly, but I also did have a few people ask if I had been to the beach. So as far as natural looking color, I think this product did a great job. But, I am still on the hunt for a self tanner that does it all, all while not leaving me smelling like self tanner.

This product gets an A+ for ease of application, lack of "fake tan" smell, and no streaks. It does not do much in terms of color pay-off. If you are VERY fair (like, Rooney Mara-level fair) and would like to try a self-tanner that won't be too dramatic, this would be great. If you're trying to build up a fake tan (like me) or have olive or darker skin to begin with, I'd skip this one.

Simply love these
Purchased

These are great. I only need one for whole body and face, the color is amazing and they are so easy to apply. If you follow the directions you will not have any problems, streaks, etc. I used to only Use Tan Towel but this prouct is amazing and at a fraction of the cost. My new favorite by far.

Not perfect but that's not a deal breaker
Purchased

These do leave some streaking but it really could be user error. I am not an expert at applying self tan, probably because I spend maybe 30 minutes a year putting this stuff on. I highly recommend this product it is great I like that it doesn't feel heavy on my skin like other creams do. Plus it dries pretty quickly so the time spent totally nude and not touching anything is limited.
