Naturally, my skin sits somewhere between porcelain and paper white. It doesn’t really bother me too much, but when summer hits, I like to get a bit of colour. I never go too dark – my preference is a nice golden glow that looks healthy rather than baked.
Xen-Tan’s Mist Intense is perfect if, like me, your after a wash of colour, but have somewhat klutzy tendencies. Rather than having to play around with foams, creams and gels, the Mist Intense only needs a couple of squirts to dispense the colour. It’s genius, and I especially appreciate it when I’m tanning areas like my back, shoulders and legs. Since the Xen-Tan Mist Intense is the darkest shade offered, I feel like it has some slimming properties too!
After a thorough shower exfoliation, I use the Mist Intense on my legs, and all over the back of my body. The spray nozzle is super easy to use, and it disperses the formula evenly, meaning I don’t have to worry about being a streaky mess in the morning. After I’ve sprayed on the tan, I like to buff it in using the Xen-Tan Tanning Mit (review to come). Unlike a lot of tanning formulas, this has a sweet vanilla scent which isn’t too strong, and I just love the fact that the tan develops in about three hours! Another major plus is that Xen-Tan’s Mist Intense lasts for about a week, so I don’t have to worry about looking pale for days at a time!
