However, the brand is now establishing itself in Ireland and wanted to get a jump start by meeting with some Irish beauty bloggers and journalists to introduce us to the line and the products. We met with the lovely Amy today and were suitably impressed with what she had to tell us!
The line came to be after its American creator became fed-up with orange looking tan. Thus the line, with its distinctly olive undertones was created, meaning that there was no longer a possibility of turning tangerine and that even the fairest of skintones could look naturally glowing!
Similarly, the line is innovative because it smells great (which we can vouch for having had a good ole sniff!). The scents are all different, depending on which line you choose from i.e. the dark line, the gradual line, but, are all equally as enticing. No more smelling like digestive biscuits, curry or whatever other scents you may associate with letting your tan develop!
Xen-Tan also offer an oil-free moisturiser called Scent Secure which literally blocks the scent of any tanning product. So, if you aren't willing to forsake your St Tropez, Fake Bake or Johnsons Holiday Skin for a Xen-Tan product, you can still get rid of the unpleasant smell which is never going to be a bad thing! Amy actually informed us that no tanning product should be used with anything oil-based as the oil causes the tan to separate and become scaly and patchy, hence the development of Scent Secure which can be used before, during and after you fake tan.
