Check It Out: Self Tanning Towelettes

Self tanning towelettes are inventive, easy to use, disposable and portable single self tanning applications. They are safe and effective ways to tan without the harmful effects of the sun's damaging rays. You can use them once a week or as often as necessary to achieve the color you desire.

To use, first be sure and exfoliate your skin to avoid streaking and splotches. Then, apply on your face and body when your skin is dry. Spread the towelettes around in small circular motions to make sure your coverage is even. When you are finished, don't forget to thoroughly wash your hands and nails. Wait about fifteen minutes before dressing so that the color doesn't damage your clothing.

Comodyne Self-Tanning Towelettes, $44.99, are individually wrapped, non-messy, single application self tanning wipes. This brand is super popular in Europe and has finally made its way to the U.S.

They are fast working, won't dry out your skin and they create a deep, golden bronze glow. They are also perfect for travel since you don't have to worry about leaks, spills or any of the new traveling with fluids laws.

I wanna know how you're supposed to reach your back with these things. I mean, unless you have someone with you that can do it, how are you supposed to reach back there? I personally prefer the Neutragena (sp?) Micro-Tanning Spray. A+ review from me! :) No nasty smell, and you can spray your back easily without rubbing anything in.

Estee Lauder used to make towelettes that were good, and didn't have so much of that terrible tanner smell.

Even when I do wash my hands and nails they still come out orange or stained as well. I just can't win.

I LOVE Tantowel. They work so much better than any other self-tanning product I've tried, and they even smell good. :)

I've used the Tantowels and they work really really well. I prefer them to any other kind of self tanner (and I've tried tons!) They are definitely a good investment!

I've used tantowels from (yes that's Home Shopping Network - hee hee). They worked pretty good, but now I prefer tinted lotions like Jergens.
