Is it really spring break if you don’t come back with a tan? For those us who aren’t spending break on a beach or if you burn easily, the Her Campus Spring Break Survival Kit has the perfect product for you! L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes will give you the healthy glow you’re looking for without turning your skin bright orange.
The towelettes come in a box of six wipes and the instructions suggest you use them daily until you reach your desired color. I was excited to try these wipes out having only used a gradual tanning lotion before and the color these towelettes gave me did not disappoint! After applying one wipe all over my body after showering at night, I woke up the next morning noticeably more tan and not smelling like fake tan. I decided to use another towelette the next day to build on my color, and after using two wipes, it lasted for a week.
There are some things you should be cautious of before diving into the world of self-tanning. When using the towelette on your body make sure you aren’t missing any spots. I made the rookie mistake of missing a spot on my leg and I woke up the next morning with a pale patch of skin. The tanning solution doesn’t instantly make your skin tan so be careful! Also, it’s important to moisturize and shave before using the wipes to maximize the life of your tan and avoid patchiness. Dry parts of the body like knees, elbows, and ankles can trap the tanning solution leaving parts of your body darker than others.
Overall, these towelettes are the perfect solution to pale winter skin. You’ll get overnight results while saving your skin from the harsh sunlight. I got many compliments throughout the week about my tan because of how natural it looked. So whether you spent your spring break binge-watching Netflix or chilling in the shade on a beach, it’s not too late to get a tan!
