Most Helpful Positive Review tan towels
I was surprised to see that a product actually works the way it says it will. Its awesome, i saw a difference within hours! I purchased tan towels to get a nice tan for my trip to orlando. Im a very fair skinned girl, and tan towels gave me an even color, natural looking, awesome tan. I live in Miami, and I'm super scared of the sun, so during the summer I always wear tons of sunblock. I have to say, I'm not sure what I would of done without them :) Im so use to buying the other brands, they never works its either they stink, its greasy, looks fake and don't work! If you know how to clean your face with a towel, you know how to use the towels, its super easy, wipe and go. As easy as it sounds. I cant really say theirs something bad about them, other than ones you try it, you'll get addicted to the way your skins glow with Tan Towels!
Most Helpful Critical Review Huge Disappointment
After reading many reviews and being on the fence about purchasing this product, I finally did buy it yesterday. It is going back to the store today. I bought the "fair to medium skin tones" because my daughter and I are fair skinned. We decided to use it only on our legs. We exfoliated & moisturized our legs beforehand and this morning our legs are orange. The only good things we have to say about Tantowel is that the orange color is streak-free and using the tan towels was easy & mess free.

Easy to use. Great color.
Well the packaging and orange should be a warning!
Mike from 33615
This is the worst product I've ever used. I followed the instructions to a T. After having the product on for 6 hrs I showered and the water was orange. What was left was orange hands and legs. I put it over my already nice tan I had because I am outside daily for hours. I thought that might add to it. Nope. Ruined my existing tan. Will never use any product from
This company and will tell all my friend and family not to either. Really upset at how it turned out! STAY AWAY!
The only self-tanner I count on
Tried and true from UT
I've tried just about every self-tanner out there, and this is the only one I keep coming back to (especially for my face)! The color is natural on me, like I got a little sun, and I can build it up with a double-application if need be. Yes, there's a strong earthy/herbal scent when first applied. But it fades relatively quickly and it DEFINITELY beats the awful too-sweet scents of other such products, which never seem to fade and make me feel slightly nauseous all day.
I would not buy this again

Maybe I used this wrong, but I found it to be orange.
I also, found it had left streaks :(
Easy to use
Nettie from Birmingham, Alabama
These always add just the right amount of color to my skin. I just looked sun kissed and my skin a litle warmer. They are very simple to use and easy to travel with.
I have used this product for several years. Always happy.

Love it! It's the only self tanner I ever use!!
GFMc from PA
I can't reach everywhere on myself because of arthritis & bad shoulder, so I love tan towel because it can reach areas my hand alone cannot! The color is great, I'm fair to med skin so I use the classic. I tried using the med to dark but it didn't work as nicely as the classic did. You really need to use it according to your actual skin tone and not because you want the darker look, it just doesn't work that way.

I have been using this product for years. Gives subtle color to my face and blends so well with my makeup.
I continue to buy this product again and again

If you exfoliate in the shower and make sure you are dry before using the Tan Towels you should get the results you're after.
Sarah Houstonian from Houston TX
The towels are easy to use and don't require messy creams or a tanning mitt. The downside is that you need about 2-3 towels for your entire body, and if the towel dries out you can't guarantee you'll get an even coverage. There's no immediate color change to show you where you've applied it. My legs were splotchy and two different shades. Use one towel per leg! Or save your money and get a professional spray tan! I did the tan the day before my vacation, and the tan washed off completely within 3 days. Keep that in mind if you're going to be swimming or going to the beach.
Worth the price
M from Oregon
No streaks and slight tan development overnight. A very faint 'tanning chemical ' scent. I used one half body size towel for both my arms and legs. My faint tan lasts about 4 days
Promising then big disappointment
Barefootblonde from Roby, TX
I was so excited about this product given all of the raving reviews. First off I'm very pale and do not tan very easily. I used two towelettes on my legs after exfoliating and prepping as usual by the next morning I had beautiful tan legs well later that night I showered and it ALL washed away and I'm back to being pale like before. Definitely a wast of money and definitely over priced.
None from Mi
Love this product! Works great and easy to apply with no streaks or weird discoloring. Perfect for a nice bit of color to a special event.
Have used these for years!
Frugal shopper from Chicago, Il
it's great! Just have to spread it out evenly.
Best tanning pr occur in the market!
Jenn from Allison park,pa
Everyone asks me where I've been on vacation:). ! When I go to my altas, there's a very short supply of the product for fair to normal colir...lots of the darker shade...:(
My only self tanner!
Gfmc from Havertown, PA
I use this mostly on my arms, neck and face unless I'm wearing capris or shorts then on my legs too! I usually start using it in June then just continue off and on thru summer and for special occasions to add a bit of color. It comes in Lt/Med and Med/Dark. I like the light/Med bc I'm light to medium complected and the darker one just doesn't look natural on me bc it works with your metabolism.
Phylmar from Scranton, Pa
I buy these every summer. They are not perfect, but they are the best I have ever used on my legs.
I would recommend them.
Trying something out
Summer glow from Bloomingdale, Illinois
I gave this a try..I am a ghost and turn lobster red if out in the sun too long. Just wanted a nice glow for a wedding. It was easy to apply and not orange.
A Summer must!
Midwest girl from Joplin MO
I love this product. Since I quit tanning several years ago, this has been my "go to" for Summer. I've tried other products but I feel that this is the best.
I buy this product constantly.
Tiffany from Pittsburgh
It's good to use the "day of". It does fade a little too quick for the price you pay, but I do love the color and the evenness.
Seven up from Mooresville, nc
At first didn't like the color.. a little Orange. But after several applications the color evened out and it looks pretty natural. Not too dark, more like sun kissed.
Just another bad fake tan
Tara826: from New Jersey
This is just another bad self tanner. It absolutely has a smell just like all the others. It has an unnatural color. It's streaky. Waste of money. Now I need to figure out how to get it off.
Great product and so easy to use
Trish from Cincinnati, OH
pleased with the color and doesn't seem to leave streaks. No smell at all.
I like it
Judy from west haven ct
easy to apply nice fragrance
Natural look, easy to use, doesn't smell, great for travel
DB from PA
I have fair skin and use these to get a bit of color without it looking obvious that I have used a tanning product. They do create a very natural and even looking tan. They are easy to use, and I think they're fantastic for travel because they are each individually wrapped in a little packet. One towel will do your whole body easily. Also, they don't seem to leave that smell that often happens with a lot of other self-tanning products. You might get a faint hint after a few hours, but nothing obnoxious or very noticeable.
