Prep your skin for tanning with Whish Exfoliating Body Wash.

Whish

Birchbox Breakdown

Sunless tanners can be a mixed bag—with often tragic results (not for nothing have we come to associate most faux-glow products with the color orange). This combination self-tanner, body butter, and toner, on the other hand, not only delivers a believable tan, but also deeply moisturizes and firms skin. Plus, we love its coconut scent, which has a certain beachy nostalgia (we’ve got the Beach Boys cued up already).

How to Use

Before going outside, apply a generous amount to all exposed skin (plus anywhere else you want a pretty, tan glow) and let dry. Wash hands right after use to make sure you don’t get the dreaded “palm tan,” and avoid showering or swimming for at least four hours. Reapply as needed. This product may stain some fabrics, so you might want to skip the tennis whites.

Over the moon
Purchased

This self tanner is what I “Wished” for. It gives you a beautiful glowing tan within a few hours of applying it. I know most of the review said it smelled great but I would disagree. Even though it did not smell the best the result was a great sun kissed look, soft skin, with SPF to boot. I am over the moon about this product and will absolutely reorder. I am fair skinned so a good self tanner that does not leave me looking like a carrot is hard to find. Love Love Love!!!!!

Wonderful Self Tanner!
Purchased

I LOVE this self tanner! It works in just one day and does not make you look orange at all. It only has a light scent. I have had minimal issues with it leaving traces on my hands. I love that it can be used daily and has an SPF. This is just what I needed this winter!

Best self tanner I've ever used

I'm fair skinned and had a few things removed unfortunately. I still go in the sun, just not as often. So in between I use self tanner. So I've tried a lot! This is the best one I've ever tried. No self tanner smells great. This does at first but later you smell the dreaded scent of self tanner. Just not as bad as most. Goes on like a lotion and is visible in a few hours. Natural looking not orange. With any self tanner its work. Exfoliate, shave, lotion on the thick skin (knees, elbows, ect). Then the self tanner. However it's worth the work. I'm Savin points up to buy on here. First time I bought it was from ulta.

Great product!
Purchased

I used my points to try this out, and so glad I did!! I exfoliated in the shower, and I think the secret to getting the perfect result is to use the Whish body butter on the problem areas first! (feet/ankles, knees, elbows, hands/wrists.) a little product goes a long way, and I applied it in circular motions. I was left with a beautiful natural glow! So excited I found this product. Smells great going on, but it does leave behind the usual self tan smell. I washed my hands with soap & water after each section of my body ( legs, torso, arms & face) and did not have any traces left after!

Smells great, but a little streaky
Purchased

This is the best smelling self tanner I've ever used, and I can even put it on before going out (not just before bed)! The color is great and looks natural, but you do need to be careful about streaks especially on your hands and forearms.

streaky mess
Purchased

This left me looking like a streaked mess! There is no way to tell "how" you did until hours later! I even purchased the exfoliate sugar scrub to use first. Had my niece try it and she had the same trouble. No special instructions were included or written on the bottle. So disappointed!

Nice color -
Purchased

This is such a great combo of SPF and self tanner. Color turned out nice but I felt "dewy" all day. The smell is a bit overwhelming -- too much of a good thing. Be sure to wash your hands!

Has a Funny Smell, But Works!
Purchased

I did not enjoy the smell of this product and that's what killed it for me, but the self-tanning aspect is great! I am not very talented at applying the product evenly, but it only had a few spots that really stood out (ankles and knees of course), but other than that it definitely gave me an near immediate tan.
