Xen-Tan Luminous Gold Gel review with before and after pictures

Xen-Tan Luminous Gold Gel*  148ml £24.99

"A revolutionary MAGIC TAN – as if by magic, apply this clear gel and leave it to transform and within 3 hours it will develop into a deep golden colour before your eyes! Skin is also enhanced with a healthy, dewy finish thanks to a gentle, iridescent sparkle. Xen-Tan's fastest-drying and longest-lasting formula coupled with a simply WOW colour, makes Luminous Gold Gel one of the best products yet!
This silky and iridescent clear tanning gel gives you an instant golden sheen and three hours later magically develops into a rich, golden colour before your eyes. Skin is left highly moisturised with a luminous sparkling finish thanks to gold shimmer flecks that gently sit on the skin. With no guide colour and Xen-Tan’s fastest-drying formula yet, you can safely slip into your little black (or white) dress."

I really missed having a regular fake tan routine and after going back to"fake tan Fridays" recently, I am so much happier and I have more confidence. I really love Xen-Tan products and I am addicted to their Dark Lotion. If you want to find out more about it, I reviewed it here and even added a silly picture of myself kissing the Dark Lotion bottle :) yes.. It really is LOVE! 

I was lucky to receive the Xen-Tan Luminous Gold Gel* to try out before Christmas and I was very excited about the new gel formula. It is a clear gel with iridescent gold sparkles and a light tropical scent- I can definitely smell coconut - I looooove coconu btwt!!! Once applied (with a tanning mitt) it sinks into the skin very quickly and takes a couple of hours (3-4) to develop. I am always amazed by tanners with no guide colour, because  after the application, I magically get a tan, whilst sitting on the sofa :)  haha. I love the way the Luminous Gold Gel looks on my skin once the colour develops. I turn golden brown and the golden shimmer is just incredible. I also use it on my face, and it looks really natural, without a hint of orange. Perfect. Oh, and the formula is paraben free and suitable for all skin types. I haven't noticed  the tan on my clothes or bedding, so you don't need to worry about waking up to stained sheets and pyjamas. 
The tan lasted for 5 days and faded evenly within 10 days. I am very impressed with the new addiction to the Xen-Tan family and I have been using it every week to make my skin look bronzed and glowy.

Are you a Xen-Tan fan? 

on my hand- before and after.
