From bronzing facial mist to in-shower tanners and even tanning drops, we're forever on the search for the perfect fresh-from-the-beach glow, and it’s safe to say we’ve tried them all. But just when we thought we’d seen it all, the tanning gurus at St Tropez only go and unveil the beauty world’s first-ever bronzing sheet mask. Promising a customisable golden glow alongside a whole host of skincare benefits, this is one fake tan we can get on board with.
Tell us more…
A global tanning first, St Tropez’s hot-off-the-press Bronzing Face Sheet Mask fuses trends in Korean skincare with self-tan. Whether you’re after a sunkissed glow or a deeper, golden tan, it’s no wonder beauty editors are falling over themselves to get their hands on this game-changing product, which allows users to customise the intensity of their tan.
How does it work?
While the mask may look like any sheet mask offering, it’s infused with a serum that blends DHA (the active tanning ingredient) with heavy-hitting hydrators like hyaluronic acid and glycerine, which leave the skin instantly dewy. Leave on for five minutes for a light glow, ten minutes for a medium glow and 15 for a deeper tan. The best bit? There’s no guide colour so it’s easy to wear during the day under make-up while the tan develops.
How do you use it?
Simply cleanse and pat your face dry prior to application. Then, gently unfold the mask, peel off the film and apply to your face. Remember to wash your hands immediately after applying the mask and when time’s up (depending on the colour you’re after), lightly massage the excess serum around the eyes, hairline and décolletage. Believe it or not, the innovative shape and design of the mask mean you won’t get any lines – it really is totally fool proof.
The bottom line?
While some may argue a regular self-tan would do the same job, the skincare benefits of this multi-tasking newbie guarantee a streak-free, even and dewy finish. For an authentic, Bali-ready glow, it’s most definitely one to road test this summer.
