Xen Tan Dark Mist Intense!

As my holiday approaches I'm starting to get into the holiday spirit and so getting a nice Tan is all part and parcel of the preparations.
You might have seen me mention the Xen Tan Dark Mist Intense as part of my favourites for June but i realised i had not yet reviewed it.


I find the spray really quick and easy to use. After the usual exfoliating i just mist on to areas and then rub in long strokes with a tanning mitt. Starting from the legs upwards and then wait a few minutes to dry. It smells lovely like the rest of the Xen Tan range.

The website states that that it contains a remarkable ingredient that works with the tanner to provide a darker, deeper and longer-lasting olive tan. And best of all it achieves beautifully natural results while remaining completely paraben free.

The Results I have used this product a lot and always had consistently great results. A brilliant instant colour which is a beautiful deep dark olive with no orange undertones at all. It isn't the cheapest of tans but i get about 6 full body applications out of this which is pretty good value.

By the way that dark mark on my leg is a bruise from when i walked into the edge of the bed grrrrr. As you can see the colour is lovely and natural looking even though its dark. Perfect for girls who like to look bronzed.
I use whatevers left on my tanning mitt and apply to my face and ears so i don't end up looking two totally different shades. I never break out or get irritated and it saves pennies on buying a separate facial tanner :)


I added some glowy eye makeup to complete the look.
Xen Tan have so many different choices for Tanning and i have to say i don't think I've come across one yet which i didn't like but it's fun trying out the different formulas and finding out what works best.
Have you tried any of the Xen Tan range and if so which is your favourite ???

  15. Hmmm I've always been sceptical about mist self tanners, I'm always afraid they will be streaky, and it must be hard to spray on your back?? I almost bought it on Apothica the other day as it was on sale for a little less than $20 but I finally opted for the Deep Bronze Instant Self-Tan.

  17. I got the Xen Tan Deep Luxe Lotion after seeing one of your reviews and I LOVE it! One of the greatest discoveries of the year. Been using it ever since. It looks very natural and people really think I'm naturally that tanned! Do you think the mist is darker than the lotion? Is it also tinted? I like the fact that the lotion is tinted so that you can see where it gets.
    Btw, love your eye make up. Which shadows did you use? Tutorial please! I'm all into easy browns and bronzes these summer.
