Xen Tan

With summer approaching I find myself desperately needing a tan. Shorts and tank tops always look better with a golden glow. We didn’t have much of a winter here in Texas this year so I already feel I'm behind on the bronzed skin. Last week I gave in and decided to try out a new self tanner. I bought Xen –Tan Luxe Daily Self Tan at Ulta for $30. There were several self tanners offered by this brand but I decided to choose this particular one for two reasons
1. I figure I should slowly get back into using self tanner since it has probably been a year since I used one and a gradual self tanner seemed the best way to do this.
2. It was about 10 dollars cheaper than the weekly self tanner and I was on a budget.

I have used this product for about a week and a half now so I think I can give an honest review of it. It is a white lotion that gets darker over several hours. The directions say to be careful of transfer on to light clothing so I like to put this on before I go to bed to avoid messing up any of my clothes. It doesn’t smell horrible but I will say that it has a strong "tropical" smell, you know that coconut tanning lotion smell. The first time I used this it left me a bit streaky although I say this was probably more do to operator error. Be sure to exfoliate before hand and put a good even coat over you whole body. The color is more on the olive toned so I feel it helps avoid an orange tint. Overall I feel this is a pretty good self tanner and after getting back into the swing of using one I think will re – purchase once I am out to keep my bronze skin all throughout summer. What is your favorite self tanner?
