XEN-TAN Deep Bronze Luxe

If regular self-tanner scares you a little (after all, everyone has witnessed faux glow gone awry), you might shy away from anything labeled ‘Deep Bronze'. But this cult favorite works on a wide range of skin tones — even the palest of the pale! We should know: we had the ghostliest person on staff try it. And guess what? She loved it. And it looked natural. And now she won’t give it back. If you want an even, just-back-from-the-islands look, this silky lotion is tops.

I tried it and was happy to find it wasn't orange or messy and looked very natural despite the fact that I'm pretty fair, but I don't really use tanning products at all and it wasn't enough to convince me that I need to start. It was fun to try, but I can pass it on :)

It didn't do anything to my skin at all. I didn't see any color change. Maybe it wasn't dark enough for me? I have Olive to Medium skin but I still thought it would make me darker. But it didn't.

It works

I received this as a sample in my monthly Birchbox and was hesitant to try it especially since it is labelled "deep bronze" and since I don't normally use self-tanners. However, I tested it and really liked the results. As with any self-tanner, it is important to do a scrub first and moisturize dry areas before applying the self-tanner to help avoid splotchiness.

I'm not really into self-tanners. Though it didn't convert me, it was a cool product to try out!

Possibly a re-purchase in the future but as a Clarisonic user I felt it might have been less effective. Also am suspicious of it causing me to break out as self tanners usually do for me.

This smells fantastic for a sunless tanner. It took longer than the prescribed 3 hours to appear on my skin. It goes on really smoothly. However, it's more expensive than many quality sunless tanners.

I liked the smell, it was unlike any self tanner I have used in the past. I am very pale, so I seem to turn orange a bit easier with QT. I tested this on a small area on my wrist and turned a pumpkin color. I will be re-applying it on the same area to see if that calms a bit. I'm not sure what I think yet.

It wasn't a bad tanning lotion. I might love it if I use it more often. One thing I love and dislike about the product is that when you first use it, it smells wonderful! The thing I dislike about it is that after a couple of hours it smelled like any other tanning lotion, but not as strong.
