Smooth, soft, sun-kissed skin is just a wipe away

It’s no secret I love a good exfoliating product, and it’s even more public knowledge that I can’t live without self-tanner. You’d wonder why I resisted trying a product that combines both in one teeny tiny packet—and after finally trying Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s Alpha Beta Glow Pad, I’m wondering the same thing myself.

Combining anti-aging and exfoliating alpha and beta hydroxy acids—plus a unique blend of microencapsulated DHA and soy proteins for a natural-looking faux glow—it’s never been easier to kill so many beauty birds with one stone. On this skincare side, these wipes also give your skin a dose of vitamin D—which means you can avoid the unprotected sun exposure necessary for your skin to produce it naturally. Oh, and the exfoliation effect also helps improve discoloration, blackheads and enlarged pores at the same time.

I officially take back every bad thing I’ve ever said about self-tanning towelettes, and I apologize for my discrimination based on one less-than-stellar experience. Do you forgive me?
