Kate Somerville 360° Body Tanning Towelettes
I love the sun and there’s nothing like a real tan but I haven’t allowed myself to fall back into that damaging habit for over 5 years now and I rely 100% on self-tanners to give my skin a bronzed glow. I have reviewed several self-tanners throughout my blog and I’ve recently tried a new one that I would like to share with you - the Kate Somerville Self-Tanning Towelettes. I’ve been resistant to make this purchase due to the price ($48 for 8 sheets) and doubtful that the size of the sheet would really last over your whole body like the package claims.
While I was working in Naples last week I purchased both the body and face sheets at Nordstrom and the associate was kind enough to toss in a sample of each for me to try before opening the actual packages. The minute I returned to my hotel I couldn’t wait to try it out! I quickly jumped in the shower and exfoliated like nobody’s business since she stressed 3 times how important that step was with this particular product. After drying off, I started with the Somerville 360®Face Self-Tanning Pads. Although I love the feature allowing your fingers to slip into a protected compartment to protect against the dreadful staining, the size and lack of flexibility in the material did make it challenging to get in the creases of my nose and around my eyes. I did have plenty of product on the pad to cover my entire face and neck, front and back.
Moving onto the Body Towelettes, I was blown away by the size of the sheet itself and then I noticed its weight and how loaded it was with self-tanner! It was just enough to cover my entire body (minus my back) and I even had enough to go over important parts twice!! Both products are completely clear so you must be careful to not repeat over areas like ankles, toes and fingers but if you take your time you will be fine.
The next day I had an incredible tan! It gave my light olive complexion an overall medium golden color. There was and still is no smell… NONE. I think that is the biggest surprise and reason to use it again. I do also love that they are individually wrapped so it makes sense for travel and ensures that the product is fresh every time you use it. I won’t purchase the Face Pads again but I will definitely be rebuy the Body Towelettes!
