If your skin has an Edward Cullen-like pallor, it’s time to consider a sunless tanner. But be careful, eager beaver: Not all self-tanners are created equal (we don’t know about you, but we’d rather be pale than orange). We’re particularly smitten with these easy-to-use, travel-friendly towelettes, which give you a natural-looking faux glow—no sun exposure required.
This product is not for me. I am not into self-tanners. but it was a nice extra in my birchbox1
I do not tan in tanning beds anymore, but still want to have a glow, especially for going out or vacations. This will do the trick. It is convenient, as you can take the towelettes to go, and it adds a nice quick color without the harmful sun. A nice glow will brighten up any complexion, and these do just that.4
I've never tried self-tanning products before so this was a new experience for me. I am fair-skinned and do not tan. I tend to sunburn and fade. I thought this would be an interesting product to try once. I wore rubber gloves while applying which worked well for me. The color looks natural, not orange as I was worried it might turn out. It does have a distinct odor...but not offensive. This isn't a product I would normally purchase simply because I prefer my skin to look light and creamy.3
I don't use self tanners regularly. I am really indifferent about this product.3
I don't use self tanner but I gave this a try. Seemed a little streaky but most likely my error of not knowing how to do the best way. With more practice I think this would be a good product if you like tan products.2
Great idea for a self tanner, helps to make an even tan without splotches. Will be buying in the future to keep my glow all winter and for my wedding in November.4
This was my very first Birchbox and of all the samples I received this is the one I expected least from. As a UK exile in the US I have milk pale skin and even tanning beds used to take five sessions to even give me a bit of brown and I gave them up because I hated the idea of unnecessary wrinkles. I have used self tanning moisturizers before with little effect. So I expected nada from this. And when I actually got some colour off these I was stunned. Not deep brown, I am never going to have that, but a nice glow. Will be buying more, and more, and more.....10 towelettes is less than 1 tanning bed session so that is a rather sweet deal too.5
I've heard terrible things about towelettes, but this product was actually not streaky and looked natural. The only thing I had a hard time with is the application. You are supposed to move the towelette in a circular motion around skin, but the towelette wants to just roll up under your hand as you rub with it so you have to keep adjusting it. I'm not sure this is a better way to apply tanner than other methods.4
I prefer a spray self tanner. The towelettes were easy to use but hard to get even. But I did like the glow they gave my skin.3
This tan towel is a great idea and it is not that it didn't work, it is just not something that I would ever use. I am sure other people really like this product though because it is so convenient.1
