Swisspers Tanning and Exfoliation Wipes

Twitter is amazing. New friends can be chatted to, news can be found, and giveaways can be scored.

Last week, Simple Skincare ( ) were offering a free Swisspers tanning pack if you ‘retweeted’ an update about the products. Jumping on the chance to try out some new beauty goodies, I retweeted, and was promptly sent a Direct Message asking for a postal address to send the pack to. (For those of you wondering what language I’m speaking – it’s Twitter-talk)

I love and buy Swisspers products so was super excited to see this in my letterbox. The package contained 20 Self-Tan Wipes, and 20 Exfoliating Wipes. What a handy combo, as exfoliation before self-tanning is a must, unless blotches and streaks are what you’re aiming for. Each to their own.

First up, the Exfoliating Wipes (EW). A handy size, they have small blue bumps on the cloth (which are the same material as your average facial wipe) which really give the feeling of a good scrub, yet aren’t too harsh on your skin. I used one wipe for the majority of my body, so the good exfol-per-wipe ratio gets a tick. Another tick? Pleasant scent!

My skin felt smooth and ready for step 2: Tanning Wipes.

Now, to be honest, I wasn’t as thrilled with these as I was with the Exfoliating Wipes. I enjoyed those immensely; these, not so much.

The most frustrating thing with the Tanning Wipes (TW) was that when rubbing over the skin, they tended to roll up as you rubbed, therefore not distributing the tan evenly and screwing the wipe up into a little sausage roll. The EW’s didn’t do this, and that might have something to do with the blue dots? The TW also didn’t last as long during the process. I would say you would need 2-3 wipes to tan your whole body, as the formula dried on your skin, and the wipe, fairly quickly.

The tanning formula also had quite a strong ‘fake-tan’ scent, which most girls (and their male counterparts) agree, isn’t the most pleasant scent. The formula processed into a pretty natural looking tan though, which I was impressed with after the application.

I’m not sure how much these retail for, the Swissper’s website doesn’t say, but being Swisspers I would say it’s not going to break the budget.

Cheap and convenient, you have to love it.

Bare with me, I’ve gotta use this slogan I just thought up, “Just tan and toss!”

Swisspers marketing, you can thank me later!
