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 love the smell as many self tanners have a horrid smell. I loved the tint it gave my skin, even with an existing tan.

Did not give off an orange look. Smelled great before putting it off but it does give off a general smell that most bronzers do. Overall a good product.

I was skeptical about this product at first because self tan lotions can be horrible and staining. This was a great product for me, it built up color slowly over time, washed off my hands easily, and didn't have a horrible smell. Most importantly it built up a natural, smooth, and subtle tan over time.

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.

I do not normally use self tanning products because i am so fair that i do not think they look natural. I also did not enjoy the smell of this tanner.
