Go a shade darker!! [Xen Tan Dark lotion Absolute Luxe]

I finally got to order this a few backs but with me just coming back from hols their has been no need for self tanning but the time has come my actual tan is fadeing rapid wont and can not be seen without the tan on well if i can help it :D.

What Xen Tan say about their product
New to the range, Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe has been four years in the making. During that time we've perfected our darkest, richest and most luxurious tan to date; one that offers a tan that will last longer than any other fake-tan product.
To create this ultimate dark, long-lasting tan, we've included more DHA active tanning agent than ever before. Because DHA is what causes the traditional 'fake tan smell', we've also included Scent Secure - a revolutionary new ingredient that locks out any chemical odours. So you can enjoy incredible natural-looking results for up to 10 days that leave you feeling fabulous.
Enriched with Ginko Biloba, Green Tea extract, aloe and Shea butter, Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe is a real treat for skin, leaving it feeling wonderfully nourished and smooth.
Easy to apply, it smoothes on evenly and fades evenly too, for beautifully even, olive-toned results every time.

Is It the best fake tan i have ever used YES, the best colour YES, the darkest of all the Xen Tan products the darker the beter i say :P even fair skined can use this it wil adjust to you, the best smell YES it ticks all the boxes.
Im a fake tan addictd and this is a winner, everything i want in a tube natural olive undertone no orange here!!, very good for the skin no dryness, a gorgeous vanilla sent no horrible tan smell, can be used for the face aswell as the body, easy to use, a guide colour so you know where youve applied no need to be scared at all. I know meny people get put of by fake tan i can see why seeing women and men looking like umpa lumpas, being all patchy and streaky, if you have the right fake tan and you prep your skin you cant go wrong not with Xen Tan they have really made it easy for you.

I would adivce on geting the Xen Tan mitt for applying its not like these cheap foam mitts that soak up all the product with this mitt the fake tan glides far beter over the skin you dont waste product and at 34.99£ a tube i wouldnt want to waste either.

When applying makeing sure youve exfoliated first alot of people miss this step and then they wonder why they have a patchy uneven tan, this is why if you dont prep your skin, move quik as poss makeing sure you blend as you go, the texture is pretty thick so you need to move pretty fast if you keep rubbing over the same area you will start to get darker patches if this happens i use my st tropez buffing mitt to go over the areas i think ive applyd to much the product has to be wet tho when doing this if not your'll just buff the product off and we dont want that do we now lol,Doing your back is very hard by your self its best to get some one to help you, and when doing your hands i use abit of moisturiser before putting the tan on you dont have to but i prefer to do this, i dont put any more product on the mitt i just use whats left from doing my body and face i always do my hands last. I apply my tan just before going to bed so it has time to develop dont be going out for a jog the gym whatever try not to sweat stay away from water, it needs time to develop avoid light colourd clothing until youve washed the colour off like i said i tend to apply before going to bed so it has least twelve hrs to come out then in the morning its safe to shower you can see the colour comeing of but your still left with a gorgeous olive tan.
After a week or so your tan should fade evenly i exfoliate any way least twice a week to make sure im not scrubbing away with one of those seriously hard pad things i dont no what their called but it hurts like hell ha then you should be ready for our next appliaction it gets it to like a routine once you start you cant stop!!

Does this fake tan compare to any other fake tanning product i have used before NO but their still are some very good fake tans out their just not as good as this one :PPPPPP
I have posted about Xen Tan's Absolute Deep Bronze Luxe this stil is a very good tan and far beter then alot on the market its just about finding the rite fake tan that works
best for you!.

It all about XEN TAN the name to trust when it comes to self tanning
