Review: Xen-Tan Dark Lotion

So a couple of weeks ago I did a review on the Mousse Intense by Xen-Tan and was very disappointed in it!
But after much thought I didn’t want to disregard other Xen-Tan products and made a small(ish) purchase on which brings me on to the dark lotion.

When I first applied it, I immediately liked it! I know that is super quick, but it was so moisturizing  and the smell was heaven. As I know my way to fake tan, I applied the product in the evening and washed off the next morning. It didn’t disappoint! The colour was a golden yet subtle brown, much better than my ghostly natural pale self. I went to work that day and instantly got compliments on how “fresh” I looked; little did they know it was down to some coating of fake tan. I then applied it that evening and in the morning was left with a deeper, gorgeous tan!

I have used it a couple of times since, and can safely tell you it’s my current fave fake tan. This is just like St moritz, but so much more moisturising.
The only disappointment was that in certain areas it does go patchy. But I guess I do expect that with fake tans- that’s what moisturizers for J

So far I would give this tan 4/5 because the price is quite steep, and I don’t really like the packaging (it’s not very travel safe).

Also sadly I don't think it fades evenly (even though many reviews say it does)

What's your fave fake tan? Thanks guys for reading! Love laura <3
