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.
I didn't find these to be any better than Loreal's tan towels you can purchase in the local grocery store. In fact, I prefer Loreal's "cheap" tan towels to this higher end product in every way.
The main complaint I have with this product was the minimal amount of color one application provided. Not to mention the fact that I haven't been in the sun for the past 9 months while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. I have never been this fair in my life. A byproduct of both my cancer and not being allowed to sit in the sunlight since chemo commenced. Certainly, one could assume, if these tan towels were going to be effective on anyone it would have been me! Pale, milky white, and akin to Casper the friendly ghost.
I was actually worried I would get too much color from these towels and end up looking orange. Not even close! No one even noticed a difference in my usual sallow, pale complexion. All in all, it was a waste of time and energy applying this product for barely there results. The cheap drug store brand tan towels offer far superior results in color and pigment absorption. Save your money: opt for the cheaper, yet better, option if your looking to get tan!
I love the ease of these towlettes, much better than the spray and great for traveling, nice even tan, will order again4
This is a fabulous product--doesn't leave you streaky or smelly. Really easy to use and great results. This is a must for when you can't get in the sun.5
As a self proclaimed tan addict, I was worried about what the tanning beds were doing to my skin. Im 32, and the aging was beginning to show.
I was a little skeptical about these wipes at first bc I haven't had any luck with other self tanning products. They either left me orange, streaky, or stinky. These wipes do none of that.
I used 2 wipes. One for my lower body, and second for face and upper body. I found it did leave a very natural, even color. The Intensive wipes are more the color my medium to light skin was looking for, but come December, I'll continue with the Natural color wipes.
A couple pointers would be: lightly moisturize after a shower and before using the wipes. This will ensure your dry skin won't "drink up" to much color. Also, rub, rub, rub. I used latex gloves for my application, and then removed the gloves to do a light pass over the tops of my hands. I then rubbed everywhere I applied the wipes to ensure I got an even result. A quick wash of my palms and I was good to go. You will notice subtle color almost immediately, and a deeper bronze within a 2-3 hour window.
The natural wipes have a light, soapy scent which I actually enjoyed all day long. The Intensive has a pleasant scent as well, but as the day went on, it did begin to have a bit of a self tan smell. Nothing anyone else noticed. :)
I am a forever fan, and have put my tanning bed days behind me, and I encourage you to give these a try as well., I'm 5 days in, and despite a bit of color lose to my face, I'm still enjoying my tan. What other self tanning products could say that?!
Turned me orange. Streaks all over. Would not recommend to friends or enemies. Maybe that last is not true about my enemies.1
such a great self tanner. goes on clear. not streaky or orange at all. i definitely want to use them all year round!5
I received 2 packets of this product awhile back in my Birchbox and just put them away in my box of samples. Well I decided to try them last night as my tanning bed tan has just about faded off. 1 towelette is not enough for your whole body though. I used both and was only able to get my chest, stomach, neck, and both arms. It was super easy to apply and did not have that noticeable self tanner smell, in fact I did not smell anything. So I did this late last night and when I got up this afternoon, I had a beautiful light, tan color with no streaks. I would go over it again if I had more though. So to sum up, you would need approx. 4 towelettes for your whole body and it doesn't hurt to have a little color already, because if you are totally pale it would probably not look natural. I love them and would like to order some more.4
Comodynes Self-Tanning towelette was meh - I'm not much for this type of product though. Seemed to work OK and didn't smell too bad.2
I am naturally light olive toned and was excited to try this product to enhanced the bronze. Unfortunately I noticed little difference once applied. The description is correct in that it is not streaky or orange but it also provides little to no color enhancement for medium skin tone.3
I received two wipes as a sample from Birchbox last year. I never used them, because I prefer cream tanners. Yesterday morning, I decided to try one of these wipes out because I was wearing capri pants to work. The package said color would develop in about 3 hours, but it never appeared... until I woke up this morning. The colors is very nice but probably a little dark for me. I only used one wipe for both lower legs, so one leg is slightly lighter than the other. I also didn't do a very good job around my ankles. I would probably purchase these again, but I would go for the natural tone wipe.3
