Birchbox Breakdown

It’s fine to want a tan; it’s not fine to lay out in the sun without SPF. The solution: Dr. Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta® Glow Pads, which give you even, natural-looking color minus the skin damage. Each single-use towelette has customized sunless tanning ingredients, exfoliators, and anti-aging complexes. Plus they’re totally odorless, so you won’t be left smelling like a bottle of Banana Boat.

How to Use

You’ll want to use this product on your face, neck, and chest. Apply to dry, clean skin using small circular motions to avoid missing any areas. For light color, perform one circular rotation, for medium color, do two to three circular rotations, and for dark color, repeat circular rotations until the pad is completely dry. Wash hands immediately after use, or use gloves while applying.

like these a lot

these are pretty great. I had tried Tarte's version of tanning pads and wanted to buy those with my birchbox points but birchbox didn't have those so I looked for something similar....I found these.... tried them. I like them a lot... I am very fair so I used once in the winter and once was all I needed for about a week.... and in the summer I use one pad about every 2-3 days. I highly recommend just doing one swipe around your face, neck, behind ears, back of neck, and chest (and a good thing about this pad is there is enough 'juice' on it to get all of those areas)..... If you're not fair you could probably use it more often....
i'm not too sure about the 'exfoliators and anti aging' parts but they seem to make my skin glow and tan.... so I look pretty radiant after using...
and they are odorless so you don't get that weird tanner smell...

Super easy

I love these self tanning pads, because I am no expert at applying self tanner and I've never had a mishap with these. I even got a great compliment from my boyfriend after using it one night; he told me I looked like I was glowing! How fitting, I know! I cut/rip the pad into smaller strips and use it on my face and it works perfectly. I have pale irish skin in the winter months so I have to be carefull to use a self tanner that doesn't turn my skin orange and this one works perfectly for me! Never had streaks on my face or hands! I'll always keep these on hand!

Have to have!

If I run out of these I panic! The easiest "facial" that makes skin GLOW! I'm probably going to get any and all products offered by this brand because I've found heaven in a facial wipe!

A must

These are amazing. No matter how hard I try (in a safe way) I have come to terms that I will never be naturally tan. Come the winter months I am practically albino, but with these cloths I can use them any time of the year and they make me just the right amount tanner, with a great glow. Never any streaks and lasts for about a week with daily toners and face washes.
