Birchbox Breakdown

There’s a simple trick to getting the most natural-looking self-applied tan possible: Exfoliation, exfoliation, exfoliation. This skin-scrubbing polish readies the skin to absorb your tanning product without streaking, and helps your body hold the shade longer. And when used in the days after applying your tanner, the polish will balance out your tan so it fades evenly—and will prep your skin for the next application, if you’re ready to spray on a little more (UV-free) summer glow.

How to Use

Massage the body polish onto skin in a circular motion, focusing on elbows, knees, and feet. After drying skin, apply self-tanner as directed.

ohhhh yeah

this goes hand and hand with the tanning mousse. It is really a must to prep your skin for the best tan possible and this gets the job done! Smells good not to harsh. So important to exfoliate properly! I would recommend to anyone using tanning lotions and mousse.

Great pre-tanning prep

This product not only works well but gives you a great tingly feeling after use. The exfoliation of skin is beautifully handled with one application. Nice!

Great anytime exfoliator

I purchased the full size of product after many exfoliator let downs & finally found the right one! The scent is fresh & leaves my skin so soft it's a must!

Great fake tan prep

I had been using various sugar/salt scrubs prior to this and this is so much better. The beads are gentle but effective on your skin and everything washes away easily leaving skin soft and tan ready! The only thing I didn't like was that it had a heavy perfume scent to it.

I bought this to prepare my skin for sunless tanner. I wished I would have done more research. It got a very poor rating from EWG, and it contains parabens. There is definitely better exfoliaters out there.
