Kate Somerville Golden Glow 3-Piece Kit
I read the reviews but thought thought nah I can do this. I did just as the directions said. I just got out of the bath dried off and applied this. There is a smell I can not described but it lingers and I had streaks everrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy where and it said to wash hands afterwards I did still looked like I had the cheap spray tan alllll over me. Also made me feel dirty. I watched the videos on how to apply over and over and over did just what they did. I still had streaks. will not do this again.
Fantastic to say the least!
My dermatologist told me to ultimately eliminate sun tanning. I looked for something that gave me a natural tan color and it was non-existent until Golden Glow! I am olive-complexioned and tan easily, but the other stuff was turning me orange! Kate's Golden Glow leaves a natural looking tan, which fooled by doctor! She was impressed with the healthy tinge & happy I'm avoiding the harmful rays of the sun, too. Thanks love!
Tkhey keep asking me to write a review. This is more in the form of a question. Have any of you ended up with round marks that look like freckles. Yes, I used the product according to the exact dorections, after about 2 days I started to look like a speckled bird. Anyone have that problem with this item?
Best I've Tried
Kate Somerville self-tanner is without doubt the best one I've tried. I use one towelette for my upper body and one for the lower. For me, the color it provides is so natural, I've had people who didn't believe me when I told them my "tan" is not from the sun. Using sunscreen is a good idea for anyone, but for me it's essential. I get an awful rash from the sun in the summer, so I must use a considerable amount of sunscreen at all times, and cannot naturally get the pretty look of a summer tan. Kate Somerville towelettes have proven to be great at giving me the tan I like. This product does not streak, dries fairly quickly, and I find the smell to be minor. I love this product and hope QVC continues to carry it.
Too difficult to get the tan even!
This product is easy to use and it dries quickly, but it is difficult to get it evenly distributed. After it dries I find places that I missed. Maybe with more practice, but it is too expensive to keep experimenting!
Love this tanner
Kate Somerville's tanning towels are the best hands down. They give the best, long lasting color compared to the other ones on the market. ALL self tanners like this are going to have a smell, but in comparison hers has the least compared to the other leading brand. I've used these for years & love them since I burn & peel I use these all throughout the spring & summer. The application is easy, fast drying & the color develops within a couple of hours. I use 1 for upper body & 1 for lower. I don't use on my face because they are too drying to my face & my skin is more sensitive there. I have never experienced streaking just an even beautiful color that this pale faced girl loves!!!!!
Actually there is an odor....
I really purchased the product to take on a couple trips and wanted to be tan before I got (get) there. The color was not too bad but the smell I just could not get past. I know this is a big problem with self-tanners and maybe if you use them all the time you are used to the odor but I heard during the presentation that it did not have an odor so I tried it. The convenience of the towels is really great, and it is really easy to apply to the body, just please work on the other issues and maybe it will be a winner, later.
Love, love these products
Best self tanner I have found. I have really fair skin and it takes all summmer just to get what most have in a few times laying out. It does not leave me orange and gives a great color/glow. Exfoliate and I go recommend putting lotion on the knees,feet, and elbows to make sure you don't get too much color there. I also save the towelettes after I do my body. I wash my hands then take a tissue and pick up the towelette and run it over the top of my hands again. It does have a slight odor but nothing bad compared to others I have tried. I do try to apply in circular motion and usually I use two towelettes for my body. One for the bottom half and another for the top. I just got the face ones so I have not tried them yet but the body ones work great on the face too.
I ordered this stuff and I will not be ordering again... It leaves streaks and is a joke on your feet and tops of your hands. It is way too expensive and just not worth it.
Sent mine back!
This was not what I expected at all. Like others said, it was orange and streaky! Way over priced. Sorry Kate, I really wanted to like it!
I do like this product
I am very fair and have never found a "nice color" with any other product. The towels are easy, and the color with one application was perfect. I was not a sun tanned look, just a nice healthy looking color. I do agree with others it still has that odor and it is pricey. However, I will continue to use weekly as it looks nice and I feel better with the color:)
I don't quite understand all of these review, that's why I'm writing thisl, I usually don't. This by far is the one and only tanning product I will use. There is no orange, no smell, no streaking. It's just a beautiful color. I just got back from Tampa, everyone at home (Chicago), thinks it's the real thing. Can't get any better than that.
