This lotion is thicker than the dark lotion and more trickier to apply. The colour guide is not as dark so I recommend this for a more experienced self tanner. The colour this lotion gives is a natural olive tan thats fades evenly. I personally find the Morrocan Tan much darker than this.

After being a fan of the Xen-Tan dark lotion I was excited to try the Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe. Although the colour was good I found it wasn’t any better than the dark lotion.
I am very very fair skinned but love to have a dark tan! I had to apply two coats of this tan before my holiday and it looked really good! No orangey patches on elbows or knees. It wore really well throughout the week even with going in the pool and the sea. By day 5 it could have done with a scrub and a top up but over all I was really pleased with the wear.
The only thing that lets this tan down is the guide colour and consistency!
I applied the tan with a mit as I always do but it was like applying glue! It’s so so sticky. And despite comments saying it dries really quickly I found it to take quite long to dry. I was stood like a topless zombie for at least half an hour before perching on the edge of the sofa for the rest of the evening waiting for it to dry. The biggest let down for me was the guide colour! When applying the tan it went on as a slightly golden shade, which even against my very pale skin was difficult to see. It took me a good half an hour to apply the tan going over and over the spots i usually miss as I just couldn’t tell where I'd already applied the tan. Luckily I had managed to get a good even coat! But for the inexperienced fake tanner this could have been disastrous!

Over all good quality tan but stick with the original dark lotion for ease of application!

I absolutely love this product. I am very pale and having only ever used 'gradual' or 'light' tanning products previously was very nervous of using this 'ultra dark' lotion for the first time but I shouldn't have worried. The guide colour is gorgeous, it smells lovely, is really moistursing and dries quickly too. When the colour developed it really did look like I'd just had a week in the sun, even my husband commented, which is most unusual! I am definitely a convert and will be buying again.

The BEST tan I've ever tried. Colour is incredible and leaves skin super soft.

My most favourite tan of all time! I can't be without this! I'm very pale, almost blue in fact. This makes me a beautiful bronzed colour that looks so natural. Without seeing my white bits I wouldn't be able to tell its fake! I find the tanning process simple, the guide colour really helps and I've never developed streaks.

This perfect tan gives me the ideal dark colour I'm always looking for. It blends perfectly leaves no steaks, it smells delicious and its excellent to leave on over night as there is no dark guide colour that ruins the bed sheets. It fades evenly and moisturises my skin perfectly. You really couldn't ask for more from a tanning product - it's perfection!!!

  • Exfoliate head to toe with an oil free exfoliator before tanning, and apply an oil free moisturiser to drier areas such as knees, elbows and ankles.
  • Once skin is clean and dry areas moisturised, apply a small amount of the smooth lotion onto a tanning mitt and glide over skin in circular motions, starting with the legs and working up to your face, applying more product to your mitt as you go. 
  • Finish hands, feet and ankles with excess tan left on the mitt to get a natural looking finish. 
  • Top Tip: To help your tan last longer, followup with an oil free moisturiser every day, and exfoliate with an oil free exfoliator every few days.
