I've been a self tanner for several years. I always dreaded the applications because of the mess and the drying time, not to mention the possible streaking and sometimes the odd color. Tan Towels eliminate all of that. The application is very easy. Just wipe it on. It dries quickly, no wandering around in the nude until it dries. It doesn't rub off on the sheets, towels, or your clothing. If you want a really dark tan, you do need to apply more than once. I just like to avoid the pasty white look with a little color so one works for me. Give it a try. I love them.
