Tonight my hubby and I will be attending the Beauty Goes Red event here in Austin. In preparation for the event, I busted out my Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Daily Self Tan. In a previous blog I had vowed that my new plan...was to be tan...but, reality of being a working mother and the constant chasing around of my almost three year old daughter has prevented me from being tan.
It has been since mid September since I used the self tanner for a wedding, but my results were so incredibly awesome (and the application so easy) that I applied it again yesterday and a second time this morning. Results? AMAZING, as always! So amazing that I am sitting here looking at my arms questioning myself as to why I don't just use this stuff daily. It honestly doesn't take that long....maybe an extra 5 minutes after the shower, but (and all of you Mommys out there will understand) that sometimes finding even a second for yourself can be difficult! The $30 bottle lasts a heck of a lot longer than I had anticipated too. I purchased mine for the wedding and have used it a total of 7-8 times and there is still a ton left. DEFINITELY money well spent! A decent spray tan costs $45-60 and is typically gone within a week and, well....we won't even discuss tanning beds since here at BeautyStoreDepot we advise against those nasty little guys!
Another fabulous coo is that I don't have to use the Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Self Tanner daily either. Every time I have used the product, I use it two days back to back to achieve my desired color and then just wait until it fades (usually it lasts close to a week for me). Your personal results may vary especially if you use any sort of exfoliating body washes, etc. One suggestion is to have someone assist you with the application on your back. The first time I had missed a spot and it wasn't noticed until a fellow bridesmaid let me know the morning of the wedding. Since I had brought the product with me, she just put some on the missed area. Hours later at the wedding, you couldn't even tell!!
I feel so much better about myself today too just by having a little more color. I have no idea what it is, but anytime I have color I feel like I look smaller, sexier, and younger. Maybe it's my heart craving my younger, carefree, sun loving years, but I honestly don't care WHAT it is, it's just nice to have a little more bounce in my step today.
Bottom line? Get some bounce back in your step and put some color back in your life!
