Any signs of any summer tan i had have well and truly left the building! So whilst the pale zombie look will be very apt for today i am not one of those girls who can pull off pale and interesting. I'm more pale and frightening! So theres only one thing for it the fake tan is back out of the cupboard.
When i went to Belfast a few weeks ago i stupidly took some of my He-Shi fake tan in my hand luggage and forgot about the liquid limit so got it confiscated! Along with showel gel, deodorant toothpaste etc etc. Doh!!
So after i finished the tiny bit i had left at home i thought i would give another brand a try! I have been fake tanning since i was probably around 15/16 Rimmel Sun Shimmer being my tan of choice and it always makes me smile a little when i see it on the shelves of Boots still.
Ive tried soooo many fake tans but my faves have always been He-Shi and Piz Buin foams. But i thought i would try out Xen-Tan having seen nothing but rave reviews.
I opted for the Moroccan Oil tan as it boast a super dark tan with a silky moisturised feel. Well i have to say it certainly lived up to the hype! Its by far the best tan i have ever used in terms of the colour and how long it lasts!
Theres not a hint of any orangeness (i know thats not a real word but i like it so its staying) its the most natural looking tan i have ever used.
Saying that though, this is after a shower! When you put it on its dark and i mean DARK! But this washes off and your left with a natural looking tan afterwards.
If your thinking of trying this tan i would 100% get a mit to protect your hands and also make sure you wear dark clothing as it does get everywhere till you shower it off!
The results last for a week which is fab if your short on time! Its deffo my no.1 tan now i think its super-de-douper! I ordered mine from Amazon (shock) for £17.00. With only having to apply once a week it will last quite a while.
Let me know how you get on if you try it!
