TanTowel® Classic Formula Self-Tan Towelettes Half Body

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.

I don't self-tan anyway....
Sampled

I got two self tanning products in my box this month, which I thought was pretty lame since I don't self tan anyway. If I was going to self-tan, a towlette seems like an easy way to apply it. I'll be sticking with my usual strategy of slathering on sunblock this summer.
Also Birchbox please note that in the review form, there is no option under "Which tanning towlettes have you tried" to say "None".

Streaky
Sampled

I am not the biggest fan of self tanners, but I gave this a try. I applied it to my legs and it came out streaky and kind of orange.

Don't like the towelettes
Sampled

I much prefer lotion applications than towelettes. I suppose this could be a good option if you miss a spot, but I don't tend to self-tan much anyway.

Loved it!
Sampled

I completely loved this. It went on so easily and was just enough color that it didn't look fake. I will am definitely buying this.

ok!
Sampled

These were ok. I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin color. It was streak free.

Just not for me
Sampled

It worked. I had a slight tan tint to my skin after a few hours. I'm just not a self-tanner kind of girl. I think it will always be too orange looking for my fair skin.

Meka
Sampled

Got this as a sample, and with only one towelette to try I didn't see any results. I do think I would need more than a one time use sample to see results with this kind of product. Smell was fine, the towelette was easy to use and not messy.

Great self tanner
Sampled

I tried this on my legs last night and it looks great. I have sensitive skin and no aggravation, and the tan looks natural not orange. One of my co-workers even noticed how great it looks and wants to try the product now.

Gives a light tan
Sampled

I am fair and like to have a little bit of color during the summer -nothing dark and far from extreme. I use self-tanner on my face, chest, legs and feet. I used the half body towelette I received in my July box on my legs. The towelette was barely enough to cover both legs but it got the job done. There was no self-tanner smell, so that was a bonus. As with all self-tanning towelettes, it dried very quickly.

The next morning, I was left with believable color. It was a little light for my taste. I wish it was just a smidge darker. I also had a little bit of streaking, although that could have been user error!

Just okay
Sampled

There really wasn't enough of a sample to give a good, solid opinion. I just can't say that I love it.
