James Read BB Gradual Tan – Face of the Day

Well, we all know that being naturally blue, I love a bit of fake tan. I am also fairly partial to a BB cream. So when I picked up a product from James Read’s new tanning range called BB Gradual Tan, I got rather excited!

And so here you see it on my face! It’s a rather nifty little product that contains skin kind hyaluronic acid to hydrate, co-enzyme Q10 for anti-ageing and cell-renewing red algae.

When you actually see this product it gets even more exciting because look!! It has it’s own brush! You literally click to dispense the product, then paint it on, like you would makeup, and you’re good to go. No racing to the sink to avoid ‘orange palm’!

It comes out like a tinted moisturiser that looks and feels fab. It brightens and even the skin in an instant. Brilliant!!
I wore this yesterday, and so the gradual self tan this product contains has developed into a lovely, natural looking tan today. Yay!!
The James Read tanning range will be launching in Harvey Nichols any day soon, and you can currently buy kits on QVC. Go to for more info.
For the rest of the makeup, just a touch of bareMinerals  mascara and Illamasqua on my lips – click here for shade info.

    Hey!! Love your blog 😉

    Do you think Medium tone is too dark for light-medium?

      thank you!

      I love all 3 of these. The Clarins and the JR ones are particularly innovative.

      James actually has a lovely new SPF15 face tan you should check out.
