Remember that one time… when you thought it would be a good idea to experiment with a new tanning product before a big night? Instead of looking like a bronzed babe you looked like someone out of the Jersey Shore. I can’t blame you, we’ve all been there. I mean how are we suppose to know which self-tanning products work best when there about 178,986 options out there.? Between the daily moisturizing, spray bottles and wipes that stack the shelves of CVS I find myself in frenzie trying to pick ‘the perfect’. I’ve come to find this problem to be quite similar to the well-known tale of Goldy Locks. Too smelly. Too orange. Too streaky. Bottom line. Finding the self-tan product that is ‘jussst right’ is hard. But could this new product be the answer to all our tanning tantrums?
Sold at Nordstrom, ULTA and ASOS, Xen-Tan is the ultimate tan fix to all your Goldy Locks probs. They’ve got you fixed for all your tanning needs and ut-ohs. (because we all know apply the perfect tan by yourself is almost impossible). I dabbled into the Xen-Tan’s Daily Moisturizer in Light/Medium and my despite my initial fear I would look like Derek Zoolander in disguise, the Face Tanner Luxe in Medium/Dark (ambitious, I know, but I applied a small amount evenly and it gave my face a nice little glow).
The Daily moisturizer is my favorite. It’s suppose to smell like Green Tea. What does green tea smell like? I couldn’t really tell you first hand, but if this what Green Tea really smells like then I want everything to smell like green tea. I was never asked by friends if I just put on tanner because I smelled funky (and I’m sure you know, anyone that gets a wiff of self-tan is gladly willing to call you out for it) and I didn’t have freaky orange creases in between my fingers.
If you’re in dire need of a tan in 10 then I would go with Xen-Tan’s Moroccan Tan . *note: do use the tanning glove that is given, else things may get weird on your palms.* This potion (I’m going to resort to calling this stuff potion because I don’t unerstand how it can get you from butt-white to bronzed babe without making you smell weird) has a tropical-esc scent that will get you looking darker instantly. Scared you might get called out for smelling like tanner, Xen-Tan hs got you covered. literally. Apply their Scent Secure Gold on about an hour after you have lathered yourself up in any of their products and you’ll be scent free (it’s like deodorant for your tan)
After a few days of being flawlessly tan, it’s no surprise, and sorry TMI, that that skins got to sluff off somewhere. And guess what goes along with it… your tan. Your glow has somewhat turned into a freakish leprosy type thing and as much as you luffa, there is still little hope to get your skin looking instantly normal. Thats where Xen-Tan comes into save the day, and to deter those stares you may be getting in class. Don’t forget to buy Xen-Tan’s Body Scrub, not only to apply as prep before your tan, but also to get the lingering tan and uneven toned skin back to its
With the last few weekends of school left (meh, G word!) and no guarantee of consistent sun (thank you Texas weather) you’ve got to leave that lasting impression of looking good right? (being sarcastic, kinda) and sun-kissed skin (from a bottle or not) is an easy way to lookin’ good.
see you around you bronzed-babe, you.
