When Xen-Tan launched their Moroccan Tan I was dying to get my hands on it. For me when it comes to fake tan, the darker the better and I was really interested in the fact it had Moroccan oil in it. I never usually spend a lot on fake tan and religiously use St Moritz which is always on offer in my local Savers or Semi Chem for a mere £3.99 (and it works like a dream). However, after rave reviews from my sister, I really wanted to treat myself to one of Xen-Tan's products. Before I had the chance to order it, my sister already had so I thought I'd wait and see what she thought of it first.
After my sister had used it once, she decided she didn't really like it because it was too dark for her so she kindly passed it on to me (my skins a lot darker than hers). So, on to the basics...Moroccan Tan is meant to give a deep instant colour, dry quickly as well as have a lovely tropical scent. Personally, I do agree with everything it says on the tube but I just did not get on with this product at all.
I'll start with the positives. This tan smells absolutely gorgeous and reminds me of being on holiday, you know that coconut smell you get when you slather on your oil (or is that just me)? Definitely the best smelling tan I've used. Also, I really loved the deep dark colour this gave me however, it could be a little dark and unnatural looking if you're already quite pale.
Now for the negatives - it dries too quickly. I know that sounds like it would be a positive but it literally dries less than a minute after you put it on which makes it a nightmare to apply. I found blending this extremely hard and just couldn't get it to look even on my skin. I though that maybe it would be okay once I washed off the guide colour but it just looked a bit patchy. Being a regular user of fake tan, I've never had that problem with any of the other tans I've used.
I've seen a lot of positive reviews of this product but unfortunately it gets a thumbs down from me - gorgeous colour, terrible to apply. Have you tried this tan yet, what did you think?
