Fold the towel into a square and use 1/4 on upper left body, upper right, lower left, and then lower right. I have found by folding and using different sections at a time and then using the whole towel to go back over I can get then entire body done with one towel.

One towel worked for my whole body but make sure you start the towel where you want the most color as the formula is more concentrated. I prepped my body by putting a light coat of regular lotion on the tops of my feet and toes, hands, knees and elbows. I started with the towel on my legs, moving upward so that by the time I got to my feet, hands, and face the towel felt slightly dry but I still saw color in all areas.

I'm a mid size gal and I tend to run abit short near the end. Use on visible spots first. I have heard on the shopping networks that many of the hostesses use two at a time and they are usually pretty tiny. So two would be optimum if you want full body coverage.

The drugstore has a kind of sponge on a stick (similar to a back scratcher) meant for this purpose; it costs about $3, and is well worth it. After going over my body once in all the places I can reach, I just wrap the towlette around the sponge end and slide it up and down my back.

Actually the towlette is a nice big size so what i did was (and this may be hard to explain without a picture!) grab the towlette with one hand on opposite corners. I am a righty, so i reach my right arm up over my right shoulder and drape the towlette over my back then with my left hand i reach around my left side and grab the bottom corner. You can then pull the towlette to your back and swipe back and forth. I got my ENTIRE back EVENLY doing that- I promise it works!!

I use this product right after showering and before I moisturize. I usually wait about 20 minutes to let the product set and then I follow my normal routine. I haven't noticed any problems with my dry areas and I just treat them like normal. My tan takes about 6-12 hours to really develop into a healthy glow and then starts to fade 2-5 days later. To make the tan last longer I usually apply a towelette every few days.

My tan lasted about 6 days. I was at the beach though and was in the water, sand, and pool a lot so it might last longer for someone else. For dry skin it is really important to use an oil free exfoliant before using the towels and let it air dry (don't sit down or wear tight clothing for about 30 minutes). I just used a St. Ives scrub. That will help the color from getting too dark or orangey on those areas. I also put lotion on my nails to keep the color from getting to dark.

Always exfoliate and moisturize, if you do that and apply it the next day you should be fine. If you have dry areas like knees, elbows, tops of feet, be sure to apply moisturizer an hour before you apply the tanner. This way the dry areas won't grab the most color.

You should definitely exfoliate well, shave your legs, and then apply a non greasy lotion to your entire body IMMEDIATELY after you get out of the shower. This will allow the self-tanner to go on much smoother over your dry areas.

Exfoliate really well with a sugar scrub. Apply right out of the shower after towel drying, while your skin is dry, but damp. Tan lasts for at least 3 days. Really appears after 12 hours!. Good luck. (Maybe don't shave legs for a day or so to prolong leg color.)

How to store towelette?
I would like to know that once you use the towelette, how do you store it so you can use it at a later time? It says that you can use the same towelette after you use it once. If so, how do you keep it from drying out? Also, can you cut them in half and store the other half for later? I would appreciate any help on this question before I spend the money on them.

I feel like if you use this on your entire body that there wouldn't actually be enough to use it on your entire body again. I just threw mine away after. If you're curious about this one, they do sell it as a single packet for $6 in the checkout line. That's what I did to test it out. That might be your best bet before investing in the whole box of them. :)

Honestly I don't use them more than once. I'm a small girl- 5'0", size 5 and it takes a full towlette to cover my entire body evenly, so I wouldn't suggest reusing.

Try a single $6 towelette first so you can see if you need a full one or get away with 1/2. I did use it just on my face without opening it up, then I returned it to the foil package and taped it tightly shut. Worked great the next time I used it!

hi, for me- these towelettes dried out by the time i was done, but if you are faster than i am, can save them to even out any small misses or streaks that you see the next day. i read a review awhile ago (which i will always appreciate) that said she saved the towelette in a zip lock bag (make sure all the air is out of the bag). it works!!! i also read reviews that some women do cut them in 1/2 & save the other 1/2. the great thing about sephora is that if these don't work for you, you can just return them for a refund. sephora is great. i have tried 1 other towelette that i did like (dr. denese) they are really wet & stay wet in a plastic bag. they are bigger, thicker & cheaper. and you get more of them. but, like most tanners they have a bronzer in them, that's why i'm now trying kate somerville. i'd rather just the tan without the bronzer in it. i love the color i get with these. i hope this helps. good luck.

Just wash your body like you normally do with soap and scrub wherever you put the tanner. It should come off! If you still have a few streaks or haven't washed it off too well in some areas, try rubbing some hand sanitizer on and it will come right off! (Don't let the hand sanitizer dry though! Wipe it off while its still wet/ liquid like.)

The color seems deeper and less "surface" than other tanners I have tried, and I have been using self-tanners for over 10 years! I use it year round. I try to apply at night and then after showering in morning use my Neutregena Sesame oil all over - gives moisture and sheen with the color from the towelette.

before you use this product, take a shower and grab a loofa/ bath scrub and exfoliate your whole body. scrub fairly hard to remove dead skin cells for a longer lasting, smoother looking tan. when you are COMPLETELY dry, take one towelette and rub all over your arms and legs. then wait for it to do it's magic. i am completely in love with this product!!!!!!! :):)::):):):)):

I have extremely dry skin and one of the things that helps me is to use a salt scrub (not sugar) once a week and it really helps the self tanning be more even and eliminate any patchiness.

I, also, have very dry skin and have had several minor skin cancers, so I'm really pleased that these work so well. As far as the concern about scaliness, I've never only noticed it once on just my legs (clearly my driest skin area), never anywhere else. So, I use a loofah in the shower on my legs daily and a good moisturizer(Neutogena body oil/body wash is great..absorbs easily). I apply the tanner after I dry off from my shower in the morning. Hope it works for you. It also fades gradually and naturally.

I find that the tanning towelettes do not dry out my skin . I do see my freckles , but find that I achieve a natural warm glow without streaking

Why not moisturize your skin, then wait about 30 minutes. The towels are so large, I use half of the towel for one leg and the half for the other leg. Then, use it on the other parts of your body.Wipe your skin in small, evenly circular motions. Most of the time, your skin will look blotchy because you missed a spot, especially the dimples of the knees. I keep smoothing it all over until the towel is totally dry.

I am extremely fair myself and the color is great. Doesn't look orange. If you have very dry skin, I would suggest exfoliating & a heavy moisturizing routine a day before using.

Personally, I'd recommend one of the lotion tanners instead of the towels. Then at least you have a shot at moisturizing & getting even coverage with the product. I like Philosophy's The Big Skinny because it is also a firming cream.

What if you applied your moisturizer or an oil in the shower and then toweled it off? Finish your shower. Have your lotion/oil handy, apply it in shower, and then towel it off. Wait a few moments and then try the towelettes. I really like the color on my skin.

I've always had good luck with Loreal Sublime Glow Lotion. It builds color after several days so mistakes are not that noticeable. It also smells much better than other products out there.

Not at all! The towels are so large, it covers all of your body. Use small, circular motions to cover every inch of the limbs you want to tan. It looks quite natural!

I have not had any streaking effects from this product, however, I would suggest using a self tanning lotion around the knees, ankles and elbows for a few days before using the towelette. If you need a tan fast and don't have the time to wait a few days then I would suggest using the towelette lightly over those areas and blotting with a sponge after you have applied it. I have found this process to work great for me and I hope it helps you as well.

I applied a moisturizing lotion immediately after using the towlette over my whole body/face and saw no streakage. I don't know if it streaks without applying lotion afterwards.

It did not streak at all for me, although I have only used it after I use Exfolikate body, it may streak if you dont use an exfoliator as recommended.
