St Tropez

Self Tan Express Bronzing Face Sheet Mask is the first sheet mask infused with self tan to hit the market.

It should be left on for five to 15 minutes, depending on the desired depth of colour, offering a light glow to a deeper, golden tan.

Trade price is £8 for a pack of two masks. Call Ellisons in the South and Scotland on 0345 222 8080 or Alan Howard in the North on 0845 345 8535
