Beauty: St Tropez

When you get a call saying that Jules Heptonstall wants to tan you, you don’t say no. Last week he found himself in Dublin’s Spencer Hotel, with pop up spray tan tent in hand, ready to show me his work and spray me into a glorious haze of bronzeness, bump and all.  And that he did, before telling me about St Tropez new products for 2015.

So who is Jules?  He is St Tropez leading tanning and skin finishing expert with a client list including Blake Lively (who gets a spray tan once a week, he tells me), Sienna Miller, Rita Ora, Laura Whitmore (whose legs he tans an hour before the rest of her body, so that they are browner) and Millie Mackintosh.

By day Jules can be found at St. Tropez HQ in London’s Covent Garden or in the living room of a celebrity client having a natter and a good cup of tea. Jules ensures press, bloggers and models are gorgeously glowing on a daily basis. During London Fashion Week he’s backstage at some of the must see shows having collaborated with designers including Erdem, Roksanda Ilincic, or Pucci SS15 (pictured below).

And it’s not just the runway Jules can be seen backstage at – having worked on The X Factor Series 8 (2011) and Strictly Come Dancing (2012, 2013) Jules knows a thing or two about tanning on high profile TV shows.

Telling me about how you can get the look at home with St Tropez self-tan product range, first up is St.Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse (€44) which is a self tan in a can where you can customise your colour and shower off in as little as one hour (for darker shades, leave on for 2-3 hours).  Take note that post-shower skin will be light in colour, but the self tan actives in St.Tropez Self Tan Express will continue to work for up to eight hours, developing into your chosen shade, for a streak-free, natural looking tan that lasts for days.

Next, is a product that I am really excited about, which is the St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil (€30).  A facial oil which develops to give a natural looking healthy glow, in a texture that’s lightweight, quick absorbing, hydrating and non-pore-blocking, St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil is clinically proven to leave skin perfectly hydrated for up to 7 days. For best results apply St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil every three to four days to maintain a natural-looking radiant glow.

And finally St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil (€33.99) is a luxe Brazilian inspired dry oil which is is clinically proven to leave skin supple, nourished and perfectly conditioned for up to seven days, whilst also lending limbs an instant shimmering glow for those occasions when you need to look great from the word go. Once it has fully developed, just wash of the subtle shimmer that acts as a guide colour to reveal a golden tan.

The St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil, 100ml, RRP €33.99 and St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil RRP €30 is available March 2015 from McCabe’s, Sam McCauley’s, Cara and other pharmacies nationwide. St.Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse (RRP €44) is available now.
