Sunless tanning has become a thing for me and as we all know, it’s wayyy better than real tanning. But what’s new for me is this new approach to s sunless tanning, using wipes, or towelettes, by Comodynes.
For a while I was using spray tans, but honestly, I much rather prefer the comfort of tanning in my own home and at a time that works best for me.
Sunless tanning wipes were something new to me, though, and had me a little confused. I couldn’t imagine one little wipe covering my entire body with tanning solution. Turns out, it’s pretty simple and the process is much more enjoyable to me than using a mouse!
As you can see, these are exactly as it sounds – sunless tanning wipes.
They look like a baby wipe and that’s partly why I love them; they feel much nicer than a ton of moose on your body! These sunless tanning wipes are by Comodynes, and honestly, I don’t know if there’s anyone else on the market that makes them. They’re easily available on Amazon (my favorites).
They come in a small package which make them really great for travel and the wipe goes clear on your skin. I read some of the reviews and most people use two wipes for their entire body and face, so I’ve mostly used two wipes per application. Most recentlyI have gotten away with just one as well and really maximized it.
Keep in mind, they go on clear, so you have to be careful to cover your entire body otherwise you’ll be left with a few streaks. It takes some practice but I feel like I’m getting better.
INSTRUCTIONS: Just like any other sunless tanning product, you’ll want to first exfoliate 24 hours before! Start with clean, dry skin and moisturize on any areas that tend to adsorb too much product (i.e. elbows, knees, etc). Apply the sunless tanning wipes with gloves OR make sure that you wash the inside of your hands to ensure you don’t get noticeable stain. They say product is safe for use on your face, too! Please keep in mind these don’t have SPF, so make sure to stay outside of the sun or wear a hat, etc. Let dry for 5-10 mins and get dressed as normal. I did notice a little transfer so keep in mind wearing darker colors may be best that day.
They say that tan is noticeable in about 3 hours but I really saw it kick in after 7/8 hours. The initial tan is natural looking and not super dark. For a darker tan, reapply after a couple days.
To purchase, see the options below on Amazon. They amount to about $2 a tan. Make sure to let me know what you think if you end up trying these out.
