Comodynes Self-Tanning

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.

I have used Tan Towels before I found these. I like these- maybe they dont get you quite as dark. I used 2 before I went to the beach. Can't beat the price.

Works well
Purchased

I really loved these when they came in my birchbox. Since, I've had some issue with the wrist area and the elbows. Even well moisturized I find it leaves splotches or orangy color there. I do like it though and it's not super smelly.

tan to go
Purchased

This is an excellent product for those of us who travel. The color is bronze not orange. No smell, no mess.

They are easy to use, they don't have a nasty smell. I get compliments about the "color" I have after using them. I would recommend these to anyone. I have used other tanning clothes and these are one of my favorites.

Pros & Cons
Purchased

There are several pros and cons to this product.

I love how fast acting this product is. I can apply in the morning and by darker in time for an event in the afternoon or evening. I found this product is better than most when it comes to streaking, you just have to take the time to evenly cover your skin. I also love the easy clean up towelettes, opposed to using a lotion/cream.

Unfortunately, like most self tanners, this product requires a lot of leg work to prevent orange and/or streaky lines. I follow the video post I saw that recommended proper exfoliation, lotion, etc. and I still can't avoid having a little bit of an orange tint. This may be a unavoidable affect of using a self tanner but a con either way.

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.

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.

Meh
Purchased

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.
