XEN-TAN Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe
with Scent Secure

Yesterday I had a mini XEN-TAN fest.
I have been feeling pretty pasty recently, and haven’t been using tan as much as I usually do, so I thought I would go for it and dip into the pure excitingness that is XEN-TAN Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe.
Sounds amazing doesn’t it? If not slightly scary, so I thought I would approach it in as professional a way as possible.
XEN-TAN Body Scrub

So whilst in the shower I had a good scrub with one of my fave exfoliators and pre-tanning prep products, the XEN-TAN Body Scrub that I got in my XEN-TAN Luxury Gift Set

It’s lovely stuff. It smells beautiful, wakes you up and gets your skin fake tan ready.
When my skin was perfectly dry, I grabbed my mitt and went for the tan. The first thing I noticed about it was the absolutely gorgeous smell. It has a lovely vanilla fragrance that literally smells good enough to eat. My boyfriend absolutely loves it which really is something because the chaps ususally hate the smell of fake tan!
You really don’t need much and it goes on really nicely. It feel super moisturising, the colour guide is very noticeable so it is easy to see where you have been.
It is like an instant beautifier because you get a lovely even colour straight away and it banished the pastiness instantly. Perfect.
The lack of that fake tan smell is down to the fact that the XEN-TAN Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe contains something called Scent Secure.  XEN-TAN have done this because in order to get a darker tan from this product they have had to include more DHA tanning ingredient. This is the ingredient that is responsible for that fake tan smell.

The Scent Secure locks out any chemical odours and means that you can feel confident that the tan smell won’t give you away! Not that I ever pretend my tan is natural!!

Really pleased with this product. Today I am left with a lovely dark even colour with absolutely no fake tan smell.

Some exciting news from XEN-TAN is that they have now created a product that you can use with any fake tan to ensure you lose the fake tan smell.The latest is XEN-TAN Scent Secure which you can use one hour after applying the fake tan of your choice to lock out that tanning smell. Fabulous!

XEN-TAN Scent Secure

The plan is to use a super smelly fake tan next and then put the XEN-TAN Scent Secure to the ultimate test! It certainly works in the Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe, so I am fairly confident about it. I will keep you posted.
