Style, Fashion and Beauty for Sophisticated Moms

So excited to share a new product I am adding to my Sassy Mom’s Must Have list which I have been using since attending the StyleChicago.com Beauty event last week. This means I was not paid to write this people.

Growing up in Florida I spent many years either on the beach or in a tanning bed. Around the age of 30 my skin started to change and then again after my oldest daughter was born the melasma kicked into overdrive (thank God for chemical peels), I was forced to significantly reduce my time in the sun.

No sun = no tan = not a good look for me.

Quickly I became a BIG fan of self tanners, however I have never successfully found a lotion that does not streak, turn me orange or smell like a self tanner. Xen-Tan provided a full bottle of Deep Bronze in my swag bag and I was thrilled to try it out before heading to Florida this week.

This stuff is amazing! I have used Xen-Tan a total of three times over the course of a week and my skin is golden brown and looks as if I have been reading romance novels on the beach and sipping Cosmos by the pool.

Honestly, after one application I had color without streaking!! Even better it is Paraben-free, light weight (works well on my face too) and it smells like a vanilla latte. Yummy!!

I highly recommend giving Xen-Tan a try to stay sun kissed without the sun damage.

    Ordered the Xen-tan on your recommendation. Loved the Deep Bronze on my legs! And you are right-no streaking! I'm trying the face tanner tonight. It's too hot, and I've been too busy to stay out in the sun. I think I have found a better alternative. Let you know what the results are tomorrow!!! pmFL
