Kate Somerville Tanning Towlettes Review







Now that I've been to dermatologist for my annual checkup and I have TWO more moles/freckles that need to be removed, I am completely done with being in the sun and all things tanning. (Especially tanning beds) So yes, I am still on a mission to find the perfect self tanner. By perfect I mean, won't streak, looks nice, doesn't smell, doesn't look fake and is within my price range.

Kate Somerville tanning towelettes are my newest find. -. Somerville360° Towelettes will produce a uniform, natural-looking glow within two to four hours


The towellette itself is a good size and has a lot of product. You can easily cover all of you with just one tiny towel. When I first saw the size of these, I thought they were samples. But no one little napkin will pack a powerful tan. The first time I used the tanning towels I was in a rush, BIG mistake! The next day I woke up streaks galore. Just because a product says it won't give you streaks doesn't mean you can be completely lazy. I looked like I had some kind of skin disease the next day. Very embarrassing.








The 2nd time I was very scared that I would mess up again. It seems like I always mess up in the same areas, around my knees and around my neck. I was very careful this time. I put on my tanning glove, (you can buy these at sally hansen) and took my time. I still made sure to really go over all areas and blend well with the towel overlapping any areas I thought might need it. Drying time was pretty fast and there was very little self tan odor. The tan was deep but not dark . Perfect for me as I want color, not just a tint. This is in no way like Jergens, which gradually darkens your skin. This is the real deal.



These are a bit more pricey than many other self tanning lines out there but I have to say with the extra wear time it can be worth it. I plan to keep some handy for those special occasion times or trips. A pre short vacation use would mean your tan would last the whole trip depending on how much time you spent in water. But these are also very easily packed for a top up. I have tons of self tanners, but these are the smallest most compact out of the bunch.

Besides QVC, Kate Somerville Tanning Towelettes are available at Available at http://www.katesomerville.com, select Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sephora, Space NK and Space NK UK

A box of 8 individual towelettes is $ 48.00 or on the brands website you can buy one for $ 6.00. Ouch. Yes, but you are paying for quality, and depending on where you are using them, these are still a good buy. If you are CAREFUL applying. So is this my perfect self tanner? Well no, and that is maybe only because of the price. I did not mention earlier, these do not smell like self tanners at all, which is a big plus. The next morning you won't wake up smelling horrible. If these were just a taddd cheaper, I think these would be my go to tanning product.




Have you tried Kate Somerville Tanning Towlettes? Thoughts?
