It’s not like I fake tan that often anyway, but when I do I have to say I really hate the mouldy-cake smell (everyone says biscuits – I say mouldy cakes). I can smell it on other people a mile off.
Admittedly a lot of fake tan I have tested of late smells a lot better than it used to – (Xen Tan is certainly a better one) but nevertheless, it’s always there with every single fake tanning product.
Mr C can recognise the smell a mile off and he doesn’t like it. He smells it and he starts watching where I sit incase I leave orange stains.
The clever people at Xen Tan invented this:
A brand new addition to the range, Xen Tan Scent Secure is a breakthrough product in tanning technology.
Providing oil-free moisture and hydration for all skin types, it is ideal for use before and after self-tan application. This luxurious moisturiser is also perfect for locking out the unpleasant smells associated with any fake tan product.
Oh yeah! I tried this (I even fake tanned for you) and I have to say it’s a really good product which seems to go over the mouldy cake smell and leaves you smelling very fresh.
The scent is – cucumber! (Well it is to me, it’s probably grape really or something!). It’s very fresh, and a good choice I think, rather than something floral or sweet which could leaving you smelling like a cake shop.
On top of the scent control it’s a relatively thick white lotion which is very hydrating without being oily:
My skin is dry anyway so this served as a nice, oily free moisturiser.
I’ll save this specifically for when I want to fake tan because it gets rid of that awful smell but I can use it for times when I just need a decent moisturiser as well.
Perfect for fake tan addicts I say (unless you like smelling like a mouldy cake…er biscuit).
