If you’ve ever gotten dressed, looked in the mirror and cursed the fact that you hadn’t self-tanned the day before, Xen-Tan’s brand new “Ins-tan-taneous” bronzing lotion is for you. As you can probably guess from the name, it gives you an instant tan, plus dries in 60 seconds and doesn’t come off (not on your clothes, not even on your sheets) until you shower.
We’re hooked on Ins-tan-taneous because it’s so much lower-maintenance than other forms of bronzing. No shaving and exfoliating beforehand, walking around your place in your underwear for an hour while the stuff dries and of course, no telltale streak marks or dark patches where you overdid it.
You just slather it on like lotion (either with the mitt or without — we prefer with since it keeps your hands clean and helps the product go on quickly and smoothly). Then wait 60 seconds before getting dressed, check in the mirror to make sure you didn’t miss any spots (if you did, just rub on another tiny dollop) and head out the door.

The bottle is pretty huge — it comes with 8 oz. — and you don’t need much to cover your arms and legs since the formula is concentrated. What we’re saying is that one bottle will last you well past summer and into fall and winter even if you’re Ins-tanning every morning.

In addition to giving you a gorgeous glow, Ins-tan-taneous evens out your skin tone, covers imperfections like cellulite and veins and somehow magically makes your legs (and wherever else you apply it) look more toned. We like to think of it as similar to those super-thick, tan, skin-perfecting tights figure skaters wear for competitions — only, you know, way better.
