But now you can buy his tanning products: celebrity tanner (yes, that's a thing) James Read's in-demand range has finally reached Australian shores. The British beautician with a seriously impressive A-lister clientele is considered the tanning guru everywhere from London (where he has his exclusive tanning studio in Harvey Nichols) to LA - clearly the stars aren't afraid to share a good beauty secret when they see one.
Exclusive to Mecca in Australia, the James Read tanning collection includes 17 products, from your to-be-expected Express Bronzing Mousse and Instant Bronzing Mist to some game-changing newbies we can't wait to get our (tanning?) mitts on. Take the Sleep Mask Tan Face, $56, a colourless gel that won't stain your pillow but delivers a natural golden glow by morning. With added aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and algae extract, is it any wonder Huntington-Whitely names it the 'best facial tanning product' she's ever used?
