Hey guys, I love all the Xen Tan range so i thought id do a review for you. Also i thought it would be fun to do a little experiment to test them all out to see the difference colour wise side by side.I now have a stripy leg!
Night before freshly applyed - L-R dark lotion, deep bronze, mist intense, face tanner luxe, transform luxe (apologies my moose decided to do a walk about so missed out!)
Next morning developed -
My favs of the range are -
Transform Luxe - Gradual tanner that smells like vanilla, I find it really moisturising, it has shea butter and vitamin E within it. It also dries quickly and i never feel sticky which is great for quick application in the morning. I try and put this on as much as I can remember, really good to use as a top up colour. The colour is really nice and natural and i never feel orange.
Facial Tanner Luxe - Love this, its really olive toned and feels great on my face and even feels fine under my make up. Wear this one quite alot as i find my tan fades so quick on my face. I use cleansing oils so this may be the problem. Again this smells like vanilla, such a change from horrid smelling tans that you cant wait to wash off! You can actually go straight out wearing any of these they smell so nice!
Dark Lotion - I like my tans nice a dark (not too dark thou!!) so this is a really good one for me. The guide colour is reallt dark which is good as you can tell exactly wear its going, i never get streaks because of this. It lasts me a good week usually and comes off nice an even. Sometimes i feel its just not dark enough once i wash off guide colour so in that case ill just use it every night until im the colour i want then just use transform to top up. This i swear smells of cherry cola! Yummy!
Bronzer - Ok sometimes i love this sometimes i hate this! I really wished it would be more olive toned than it is, it sometimes feels slightly orange, but sometimes it blends perfectly with my tan. Sometimes struggle with my make up when wearing this tan as my face can be warmer toned than my body! Ill stick to my illamasqua bronzer day to day i think!
I do sometimes use the others, Mouse, Spray and deep bronze just depends on my mood and how dark i feel i need to be! After seeing the swatches i may use the spray mist a little more as it seems to be more olive toned than the rest, not that any of them look orange in the slightest. Only downside id say of them all is when you first put them on you look slightly green, some more than others, but this does go away but is a bit scary thinking you are going to turn green!!!
