Xen Tan Ultra Dark Luxe
ULTRA DARK, don’t be put of by this!. This is the BEST colour I have EVER worked with, the texture is good creamy/gel but lightweight.
Xen Tan’s key selling point is its olive undertones so you will never go orange, with this product they are totally 100% correct, this states its "ultra dark" but I wouldn't say it was ultra dark in the sense of other fake tans out there, this, best way to describe, leaves you with the most olive brown colour ever seen, the tan most definitely looks real, isn’t patchy (read my tanning guide for even better results on "guides" page) and smells what they say is "Vanilla" however I would say it has a chocolaty smell somewhere there too.
The guide colour to the product is nice, not as dark as their DARK lotion, which really can stain your hands (this can as well but a good scrub and your safe), you can definitely see the olive under tones within the product as you can see in the picture below.
The ingredients this product has in them (and doesn't) are amazing, First and this is my big thing - No PARABEN'S, and it contains green tea, milk thistle, shea butter (one of the worlds most nourishing butters), Ginkgo Biloba, Lactic Acid (small percentage, low in the list, will help smooth the skin for better application)
Another great thing about Xen Tan is there time release formula which allows higher doses of DHA (the tanning ingredient) to be put in without the product turning you an immense orange/brown mess and drying your skin so badly you would become patchy no matter how you applied it. Xen-Tan have also now started "scent secure" which blocks out the natural chemical reaction smell, this is built into this product but they now have it as a separate moisturiser which can be applied over your fake tan within an hour or whenever you smell the chemical, and this formula has a firming complex to forever make your skin better.
So how does it look developed? The colour when finished developing is great its olive and there is not orange and definitely no yellow, check out the finished result below (lighting not the best but its an awesome colour even in harsh daylight)
