This is by far the best gradual tan I have ever tried, definitely worth the money. Applying it is like a spa experience, and the smell of the coconut is amazing - no fake tan smell at all. Leave on overnight and when you wake up and shower, your skin is soft, smooth with an even natural tan. No streaks, just a very natural all over colour. (Posted on 9/7/2017)

James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm Face & Body



James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm Face & Body is a nourishing tanning balm that simply melts on contact with the skin to moisturise and condition while delivering a beautifully buildable tan.

Why you need it:
James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm Face & Body is the first of its kind! This tanning balm contains a touch of self tan in a base rich in organic Coconut Oil for a luxurious natural tan with a subtle result. You can reapply the tan 2-3 times a week to build a deeper tan. It intensely moisturises and hydrates skin so there's no need to use a moisturiser beforehand. Your colour will last for up to 5 days.

How to use:
Prep skin by exfoliating thoroughly before use. Put on the gloves provided, open the pot and use the spatula to mix thoroughly and soften the balm. Continue until the balm is smooth, thick and creamy. If necessary, put the pot in a bowl of warm water for 30 seconds or longer if needed. Scoop out a little of the balm and apply, starting at the ankles and working upwards in circular motions. Check that the product has been applied evenly by using the sheen as a guide, and leave hands and feet till last. Avoid contact with water for 8 hours. If you want a deeper tan, apply 2 or 3 times a week. Keep the balm solid by storing in your fridge. Stir thoroughly before every use.
