Tantasia by jane iredale - A sunless tan that's naturally you

Enjoy a sunless tan that’s naturally you with Tantasia by jane iredale. With more skin on show in summer, it’s no surprise a healthy, sun-kissed complexion is on most people’s wish list. Don’t risk the harmful effects of the sun or a faux orange glow. Instead enlist the help of jane iredale’s Tantasia. A unique mineral-based self-tanner, Tantasia works with your skin’s own melanin to produce an even, streak-free tan that’s unique to you.

Apply Tantasia daily on clean skin for three days and watch it build a perfect colour. Your Tantasia tan will last much longer than most self-tanners, because, believe it or not, it’s your own tan. Once you’ve achieved your desired shade, wear it confidently and simply touch up once you see the colour beginning to fade.

The ultimate 2-in-1, you can skip the moisturiser as Tantasia is enriched with wheat-protein that promotes natural skin hydration and natural vegetable-sourced silicone to leave your skin silky to the touch. 

Streak-free and orange free, you can rest assure Tantasia won’t give your new glow away either. Tantasia has an invigorating fresh fragrance right out of the tube and won’t leave you with that fake tan after-smell – you can apply it just before heading out the door. Enjoy the warmer months with a safe, golden glow that’s naturally you with Tantasia from jane iredale.

On shelves now RRP $54.00. For stockists please call 1300 850 008.

The creams have a light-weight texture so they melt right in, keep your skin soft and glowing all day and make sure that foundation and concealer go on smoothly and evenly. And with their clean botanical scent, the products smell as fresh as they feel.

Hydrating Rich Cream Cleanser is formulated with rich emollients and Enriched Mineral Water Blend to cleanse, purify and remove all traces of dirt and makeup without stripping skin of moisture. Avocado Butter and a natural blend of Jojoba, Avocado and Grape Seed Oils gives skin a cushiony, comfortable feel. This newest addition to the Hydrating Skincare line gently and effectively removes impurities, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and supple. Ideal for all skin types. 
Applied immediately after cleansing, this skin-conditioning tonic begins to restore and balance skin, leaving it soft, soothed and perfectly prepared for the treatment products to follow.
This nourishing cream replenishes skin with the moisture it loses daily. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream is formulated with Algae Extract, a hydrating botanical, and Kukui Nut Oil, a natural extract that effectively softens skin and prepares it for smooth, seamless makeup application. Dermatologist-tested.

Instantly seductive - pure pleasure wrapped in impulsive charm. In an explosion of shocking pink and gold, Prada CANDY takes you on a walk on the wild side, showing a new facet of Prada femininity where more is more and excess is everything.

Prada CANDY evolved from a desire to push things to the maximum, to create totally new, unexpected and optimistic concepts. Prada CANDY declares that there is no better time than now to be daring and passionate about life The pure indulgence and enjoyment of Prada CANDY lies in its excess; combining exceptionally high-quality ingredients in excessive proportions.

A Cocktail of Musks
A refined veil of timeless Musks drapes the Benzoin and Caramel notes, revealing an irreverent combination defying convention. The silky, powdery texture of the Musks brings a sophisticated and elegant character to the fragrance.

An Overdose of Laotian Benzoin
Benzoin is a resin collected from the styrax tree, grown in the forests of Laos. Found here in an unprecedented concentration of 12%, it is addictive and sensual, with warm, sweet, balsamy notes evoking delicately vanilla-scented honey.
An Explosion of Caramel
In an unexpected Prada twist, a synthetic pop accord of Caramel is playfully jostling with the natural note of Benzoin. This Caramel accord is delicious, joyfully feminine and sweetly addictive.
Available from Prada Boutiques, Myer and David Jones from October 2, 2011.
