Xen-Tan :The celebrity tan
What do you want from the perfect spray tan? To not leave the salon resembling an Umpa-Lumpa or smelling like a wet dog? For the tan to look natural for over a week? There are lots of elements that together make a salon tan just right, and we think we’ve found the one that ticks all the boxes.
If you haven’t already heard of Xen-Tan you’re missing out. It’s swiftly becoming a fave with beauty experts and celebs thanks to the natural looking colour it grants that lasts for ages with a natural fade.
Here’s the science that makes it special: it contains state of the art time release ingredient that slows down the release of the tanning ingredient, DHA, resulting in a long-lasting, natural golden colour. Being paraben and alcohol-free means it is also less drying than others and the texture is super light so it dissolves quickly into the skin.
You can DIY with Xen-Tan products at-home but have a spray in a salon means you get professional results; great coverage on those hard to reach areas and the most natural finish with application tailored to your body. The skilled therapists can even shade and sculpt your body (ie make it look thinner!).
As Xen-Tan is formulated with a sweet cherry almond fragrance it doesn’t have that weird biscuit scent that some fake tans do, but depending on how deep you requested the tan you might look a little bit grubby in patches until you wash it off either that evening or the following morning – depending on how long your therapist recommends for your desired effect.
