Absolutely love! One towel does the whole body. Dries quickly. No streaking. Very believable color. Initial lemon scent is strong (very similar to Tan Towels) and you do get self tanner funk after a few hours, but it goes away with a shower. And it lasts!

These are absolutely fabulous. I have medium skin and I decided to give these towelettes a try since they seemed so easy and simple to use. Sephora & Kate Somerville sell these in 2 packs so you can try them out without splurging for an entire box, which is pretty expensive.
The towel is pretty big and comes dripping in product that smells citrusy. If you apply correctly, it should be somewhat dry by the end of your application. I'm petite (5'2, 105 lbs) and it took one full towel to cover my body and face. After shaving and exfoliating, I applied the towel in a circular rubbing motion with gloves on. I spent more time on areas that were paler than others and it worked just fine on my face.
It dried quickly and developed into a very nice, natural looking tan (equivalent to one tanning session) overnight. I was worried it wouldn't be dark enough since I'm already kind of tan but it was the perfect color - no orange and no streaking. My skin looked healthier and moisturized as opposed to that dry leathery feel I sometimes I get after using a bed. There was a very subtle smell of self-tanner that lingered but it was hardly noticeable. The glow became darker throughout the next day.
This is a great product for those who don't like to bother with messy self-tanners. It's so quick and easy to use without the damaging effects of salon tanning. The only downside is the price. Kate Somerville can be expensive.

This is not entirely awful. If you got streaks it's because your awful with your application... it's not the products fault. This can provide great color, well as great as a fake tan can look... this is one of the better looking ones as far as the orange factor. They are very saturated sheets. Just exfoliate well first and of course be careful around your knees, elbows. This does not smell that horrible either! That's good. I have simply given up on fake tanning, I find it too difficult because of all of the acne medications I use, my face is ALWAYS lighter than my body when I self tan...
One thing that is fairly tricky with these is the hands... just make a fist, and swipe down on the top of your palm, then apply lotion to blend it around your entire hand if that makes sense.
So, these are fairly expensive, but worth it to me for a few reasons, they do not have that strong odor that almost everyone else has with their tanning products. and they have a fairly believable color. They are not bad at all. Just be very meticulous with your application. Wipe in CIRCULAR motions, don't just swipe it up and down, of course your gonna streak, buff in circles!

I am a fair skinned young woman with a fairly strong yellow undertone to my skin. To start I made sure that I had exfoliated my body and face to make sure that the color wouldn't end up looking blotchy. In my BLACK swim suit I placed the product to my stomach and made sure that I did my face last. Within 2 hours I could see that my skin was already a nice light golden color, I thought that was as far as it was going to go. But after 5 hours my skin was a nice tan! It wasn't at all orange. I must say the tan was by far the best I've had with self-tanners. There was no smell to the product and there was plenty of the product to go around. And now 3 days later the tan has faded to a nice glow, I am truly happy with this.

First of all, it has zero smell. Zero. That alone makes me like this product.
It's a very good, natural-looking self-tanner IF YOU USE IT RIGHT.
It's a towlette for whole face and body so it has a lot of product in the towlette. Whatever you do, don't start on the face.
Use it all over your body then end on your face for a natural glow. If you do it in reverse, you will be scrubbing it off your face the nect morning.

Super orange, streaky and unpredictable. It needs a slight tinted color guide. I'm no novice and I applied carefully, but this looked like a cheap crappy drugstore product. As far as I'm concerned the only self tanners worth using are Sun Labs Dark Sunsation and Au Courant tinted mousse. They are easy to use and give a fair amount of nice brown color.

Biggest mistake of my LIFE.
I have been self tanning for about five years now. I have tried so many products- mostly high end- and this was the WORST. I tried this on vacation and it is the middle of august in Oklahoma and I had to wear a LONG SLEEVE SHIRT to cover up the ..scales.. I got from this. The color is orange. so orange. I am scaly all over my body it looks like i have a skin disease.
So bad. so so so so so bad.

What a nightmare. A family member purchased these at a special price, so I figured I would give one a try. After extensive self-tanning research, I took the plunge. I followed the directions word for word.. even did research online about the product for application tips.. The first application, not bad-- no transfer (after less than 10 minutes of dry time), even-ish tan, no streaks, my feet were the only thing that I apparently didn't apply enough color to (you can't tell, because there isn't a color guide, they go on clear!). I did have a tiny pooling of color on the back of my left ankle, but that was my fault. I did look a little on the orange side, but after showering I felt I looked a bit less ridiculous. I applied another towel a day or two after because the color wasn't very dark at all. The trouble started here, I wound up with a bunch of random places that didn't take to the color, and it started to look uneven. And then, to top it off, in direct sunlight, my skin looked like it was an orangey/red/tannish color..yuck. Not realistic whatsoever. After it faded a bit, it looked a little better on my arms and chest, but then something else went wrong! I went to the gym (no problems with sweating, the color stayed put), came home and hopped in the shower.. I stepped out of the shower looking like a speckled fool. The tanner had started to pool in places, and fade in others.. despite the care I took in washing my skin so it wouldn't screw it up. I looked almost bruised in some spots.. it was 100 degrees out that day, and I had to wear pants and a long sleeve shirt to work.
It then took me, 2 baby oil soaks, baking soda, and 2 irish spring soap washes to remove the color -- IT'S STILL LINGERING (this would've been fabulous had it actually worked out!)
Overall, this product is overpriced... The packaging is good, but nothing life-changing amazing.. Also, they claim this product doesn't smell like a typical self tanner..Sure, it smells like lemon floor cleaner for the first few minutes, and then it proceeds to smell like every other self tanner. I really wanted to like these, but just save yourself the headache and get it done professionally.

I was attracted to the convenience of this product. It's expensive....about $8 a towel. I'm small and one towel was not enough for my body/face. Applied at night and woke up in the morning with streaks/uneven tan everywhere. You cannot see where you are applying this product. Very disappointed.

WONDERFUL! I have gone on and off with self tanners. It was always too hard to blend my hands and not look orange and all that. Ive used a lot. Chanel, Dior, Jergens, L'oreal. I bought these off of QVC, for 48 dollars, for a pack of 8! Very expensive if you ask me, but they give a very good color. Very natural. Not a hint of orange. And if you apply it correctly, and take your time, there will be no streaks. it is a very large towelette, that will cover your entire body. Each persons color will be different bcause the color reacts different with each person body. I will buy again definitley. There is a smell, but get over it. I apply this at night and then I wake up with a tan! Sometimes I apply another towelette that morning. Exfoliate before you do this! And moisturize to enhance the tan, it also prolongs the life of your tan as well. Yay for KATE!
