Xen-tan have done it again, the brand that are able to please customers over and over. I honestly think they're about to wipe any other fake tans off the market. If you haven't read my review of their mist spray you may want to start by reading that first to understand a bit more about their values, you can read that by clicking here.
I know a lot of my readers went out and bought the tan reviewed above soon after, sorry to break it to you but you're in for another investment in this, Xen-tan's best selling lotion.
I never use fake tanning lotions, i'm more of a spray kind of girl but i've read such raving reviews of this lotion that thousands of people can't be wrong can they?
I also liked the idea that if I use this lotion, it actually doubles up as a fake tan and a moisturiser, keeps me brown whilst being good towards my skin, what more could I want. After doing a bit of research on the product I found out that it's 'enriched with Ginko Biloba, Green Tea extract, aloe and Shea butter' which would explain why it glides onto the skin so smoothly, and really feels like it's benefiting you inside and out.
Excuse the shoddy lighting but here is me au natural - a slight bit of colour as my natural tan from Mallorca is only just fading.
I'm a sucker for a basic design and Xen-Tan always get this right, large logo on a beautiful bronzed bottle.
I wanted to show you what the lotion looks like, you can almost see how smooth and shiny it is from the photographs. It literally glides onto your skin.
I used a mitt to apply it but because it's like a moisturiser the mitt actually soaks quite a lot of the lotion up, because of this i'd recommend just using some plastic gloves to put it on with as it will help it to glide on smoother.
Here I tried to capture the process, as you can see the bottom of my leg is ridiculously pale as opposed to the top bit which has only one layer of the tan on it. My arm on the second photo has a slight glow from a teeny bit that I had glided on, I then showed you the colour of the lotion on my arm, it's easy to see and acts really well as a colour guide. The third picture is that rubbed in, I still haven't used much fake tan.
The results can be seen here, I got so many compliments because whilst giving me a glow it really is so natural. It is still super good at giving you a deep colour but not an orange smelly flakey one more of a deep, rich and classy tan i'd say - as well as locking in moisture all day.
You can see that my legs are an olive tone here from the tan and there is certainly no sign of orange.I'm pretty sure no one can say that this is too intense though, it literally works with your skin to give you the perfect tan. Below you can see a close up of the colour on my bronzed foot. I love having brown feet!
Everyone always asks me where to buy it from, i'd say the website is your best bet:
i've got to say, xen-tan is the best fake tan I have ever used (TRUST ME, I HAVE USED NEARLY EVERY FAKE TAN ON THE MARKET) and my family agrees, even my brother has commented on how good it looks, it gives you that perfect spray tanned look after every application and people even joke that I look like ive had a week in Mexico.
What's your favourite fake tan? Have you used Xen tan?
