Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Weekly Self Tan (Dark) #TFWOC

Voted Best Ever Beauty Buy by Elle Beauty, Deep Bronze Luxe is the perfect between a medium and dark tan.

The ultra-sheer instant colour formula is easy to apply, goes on evenly and is completely streak-free. Giving you a gorgeous glow that'll last for up to seven days, and a confidence boost that'll last even longer.

It also contains additional vitamin E, Green Tea and skin-loving anti-oxidants that soothe, smooth and nourish skin while providing an instant and natural colour you'll love. What's more, the pleasant vanilla fragrance will leave you feeling wrapped in luxury.

From reading other beauty blogs it's apparent that Xen-Tan is one of the bigger self tanning brands out there with a devoted following and Deep Bronze Luxe seems to be a big hit with everyone so I was really excited to try it.

It comes out this murky olive green colour and has a pleasant scent but the major pitfall I found was it blended in transparent and I couldn't tell where I had already applied. As I was applying this on my arm it wasn't such a big deal, but if I was doing a full body application this would have really bugged me. It does say "instant colour" on the packaging but I couldn't see anything developing even after a few hours.

In fact over the week I still couldn't see a change to my skin tone until I took these photos several days later. Can you see how my arm has acquired a slight olive tone (top arm)? But so slight that I can't see it with my naked eye so not much point really! It's supposed to last a week but this faded 4-5 days later. Quite disappointed with the results but my conclusion is that this is suited to those with fairer skin and not mine :)

I had the mini "try before you buy" 30ml sample which retails for £3.99 from Xen-Tan's website and you can get the full sized version (236ml) for £21.50 from feelunique.


  1. It's a shame how this is called 'Dark' yet it's not the slightest dark, not even my pale skintone ):

    1. It's a real shame, I was expecting so much more from it! xx

  2. I would of thought too the colour would of been deeper. Ah what a shame! xo

  3. I would have thought this would have really given you a golden tan as it did on me and we're not far off skin tone wise. This surprises me! Great review xo
