“VERY Disappointing!!!”

Written on: 14/06/2013 by Siena (1 review written)

I am SO angry with 2 of the girls at Nordstrom that sold me on Xen-Tan. They EACH told me that once applied, the 'tan' would last 5 to 7 days. I was thrilled to hear that. I can't tell you how surprised I was when in the shower I saw all the water washing off of me looked dirty. Once OUT of the shower I saw why---virtually NOTHING left to my so-called 'suntan'. This product is just too expensive to wash off. I'm taking it back. … Read Full Review

“In a class of its own!”

Written on: 23/04/2013 by JayneReviews (5 reviews written)

I wouldn't have thought to leave a review for this, but spotted it along the sidebar and so had to let people know just how great it is! I have used EVERY type of fake tan, believe me, but I don't like that tacky orange look.. I'm aiming for a natural, just back from a great holiday glow. I also hate the smell and mess of most self tanners, which really puts me off. So when I tried Xen Tan, I was in heaven. Really easy to apply, beautiful colour and absolutely NO biscuit smell. It also comes… Read Full Review

“Doesn't work”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I had high hopes for this product given the fact that it claimed to give an "olive undertone", was long lasting and didn't have that typical DHA scent to it. I was excited to try it but found that it just didn't deliver. It provides instant color which is nice, but it is VERY messy. You have to wash your hands for a good 2 or 3 minutes with soap to get it off. It's also TERRIBLY messy while you're wearing it. It will rub off on ANYTHING it touches - just like a liquid foundation. I kept… Read Full Review

“GREAT!!!!”

Written on: 13/06/2012 by raes104 (1 review written)

I was pretty impressed with this lotion. I was a little nervous after reading some reviews...but from my experience it has been wonderful! There was no streaking, (I did use my hands to put on the lotion...but scrubbed really well after and they turned out just fine). My skin is fair, and normally will turn that yucky orangish color with other self tanners. This gave me a brown color - exactly what I was hoping for! I think it is WELL worth the money. I am one happy customer! :)… Read Full Review

“Disappointed”

Written on: 12/05/2012 by Jodzlf90 (2 reviews written)

Keep it short and sweet.. for people that want slight colour Xen Tan dark lotion would be good for you :) For people like me who enjoy a deep tan your better off going else where unless you dont mind doing more than 1 application. For me to get the colour I want especially on my legs I have to do 3 applications which is a pain considering Xen Tan isnt exactly one of the cheaper brands on the market today. It does smell nice when it goes on but within an hour or 2 the typical fake tan smell… Read Full Review

“Best self tanning lotion”

Written on: 07/08/2011 by Jdresou (1 review written)

i cannot stand the smell of other self tanning creams but this one you get a nice smell straight away and next day you can smell a tiny bit but not much. I have had no streaks when. Use the MIT as I don't apply much and keep going over rubbing the same bits in. I don't use that much either but top up every 5days… Read Full Review

“Changed my mind”

Written on: 05/06/2011

I bought this stuff expecting miracles and the first time I applied it I ended up getting extremely angry that I had wasted my money! BUT then I tried another way of applying and I absolutely love this stuff! When I first applied this stuff I used a tanning mit - BIG MISTAKE it just seemed to drag the product around causing massive streaks all over, so then I tried applying with gloves and again a big streaky mess! at this point I'd washed it off twice and had lost all faith in this 'wonder'… Read Full Review

I have used xen tan dark lotion for 3 maybe 4 yr now , I am soooo pale (like a ghost) I love the colour after first application but once guide colour is washed off I need to apply another coat :( I have never bought another fake tan since I tried this! It smells gr8 at first but as it develops you can start to smell the dreaded fake tan smell,its not too bad tho and after first shower you cant smell it. Aplication is easy with their mitt ,if you find it hard to apply with the mitt and feel it… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2011

Don't waste your money on this tanning product. This is by far the worst tanner I have ever used. I have tried other tanners in the past that only cost ten dollars and worked soo much better than Xen. It gave me an Orange tan. I only tried it b/ c I was looking for a tanner that smelled better. Although this xen tanner has a light scent its horrible to tan with. I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Save your money… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2011 by addictedtobeauty (3 reviews written)

I can't believe how good this is! Been meaning to try this for a while but its never in house of fraser or debenhams near me so I eventually ordered online. I am a fake tan addict - I usually use St Tropex or fake bake...I am totally converted and will be buying this from now on. I shopped around on the internet and got the larger bottle £7 cheaper than the official website including delivery. The lotion is slightly tinted, not as dark as other products but enough to see where you've… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2011

I have just finished a bottle of the xentan dark lotion, honestly it has to be the best fake tan i have ever used, but it should be for the price! I think i payed £30 for it, it probably lasted about 4 months but i only ever used it perhaps every other weekend. To be fair you dont have to use it much more because it stays on for about 9 days and doesnt go patchy at all like most fake tans do. And people thought i was just naturally tanned because its not a horrible orangey fake tan colour its… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/05/2011

I love this product and cannot believe that it makes some of you streaky as you have said! I don't exfoliate before use, I just whack it on with a mitt, face as well. I have psoriosis on my knees and i just dab them in palmers cocoa formula before i tan. I also rub a little on my eyebrows and on inside of wrists. vaseline would work just as well. No one ever believes I have on fake tan as it does not go orange. I put it on at bedtime and shower it off in the morning, no horrible chemical smel… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2011

Xen tan .. Ok, so i am not one to judge. I am very optimistic and believe in the hypes of products and expect them to be as good as they claim. So lets get to the point, i am fair skinned which never tans just burns (painfully!) and decided i needed a wash of colour in my life, so i made the decision of buying xen tan dark lotion. Now my thoughts on this is very mixed, what i mean is i love the smell, colour (olive golden tan rather than luminous satsuma) and the application is easy and not… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2011

I've been using Xen Tan on and off for about two months now. I have a love hate relationship with it. The reasdon being I absolutely love the colour it gives and I adore the smell, I don't understand how anyone wouldn't. But the application is awful it is quite thin but yet so hard to apply and I always end up with streaks the following day! Everytime I apply I take extra care not to streak as it happens so often with Xen Tan I exfoliate the night before and moisturise but yet it just doesn't… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2011

I love Xen tan i am pale skinned and fair haired and had been using St Tropez for years however although i liked the result it used to wear off very patchy. With Xen tan i wash off after 3 hrs which means i don't have to sleep in it and i am left with a nice natural tan suited to my colouring which isn't orange it also does not fade patchy and lasts a week if you mostuise and gently exfoliate after a couple of days. I would say to everyone to try it you will love it… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2011

I have always used 'St tropez' lotion, but the smell of it was horrendous! so I decided to give 'xen-tan' a go, It smells gorgeous like batten-berg cake and goes on very smoothly, streak free, I am naturall pale and the colour is a lovely natural brown whereas I thought st tropez was a bit on the yellow side, it seemed to dry fairly quickly aswel, and my skin is left feeling smooth and moist. I am very pleased with this product and shall be buying it again :D… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/01/2011

This is the first time I have used this product after trying many others. The colour after my first application is a nice olive although not as dark as I would like, this may improve after a
Second application though. One thing I am really loving this product for is the smell, it's not the usual biscuit smell you tend to get with other products it's a sweet almost chocolate smell this could be sickly for some though so be aware if you don't like sweet fragrances although this isn't very… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2010 by Medicbarb (1 review written)

Have used fake-tans since they were first produced and have tried everyone. Xen-tan is by far the best. Thicker than other ones which makes applying easier, smells like Almond but when washed off there is no after-smell. Can be used on face and body, making it better than buying multiple bottles. Leaves the skin silky smooth {Even on me at 58yrs.} Lasts longer than its rivals eg St.Tropez. The colour is fantastic even on fairer skins, natural olive colour.I have also tested it next to 10 other… Read Full Review
