Earlier this week, I had a lovely breakfast with tanning expert and tan innovator James Read. The first thing I have to say is that James is absolutely wonderful. I met him about five years ago when I first started blogging and before he launched his very own tanning brand. He is as lovely now as he was then. His range has been a huge success. It started in the UK and he is now in Sephora stateside. As I said, that’s huge success by any beauty standards, yet James has stayed the same. He’s friendly, funny and completely lovable. I adore him. Anyway, enough chat. James has launched some brilliant and innovative new tanning products and today I am looking at the James Read Tan Perfecting Enzyme Peel Mask.
So this mask isn’t a tanner in itself, but it’s all about preparing the facial skin for the best tan possible. I have become very wary of fake tan on my face over the last year or so because I often find that it clings to dry patches and highlights all the imperfections that I spend my life trying to recede or conceal.
The James Read Tan Perfecting Enzyme Peel Mask is designed to ensure the skin is perfectly smooth and prepped for some faux glow.

Now, one of my first beauty obsessions ever was the peel-off mask! My goodness I used to love them. It was more about fun than it was about skincare, and the challenge was to peel off the whole face in one piece! Now that was victory!
And now the fun is back! All you do is apply a thick layer, let it dry which takes about 20 minutes, peel it off (it comes off in one go if you’re careful – YES!) and then rinse with water. It left my skin smooth and glowing.
I followed it with the James Read Express Glow Face Mask which I washed off after a couple of hours and I was left with a gorgeous golden glow the next day.
