A Gradual Glow from James Read

At Melmira, we love the look of bronzed skin but prefer to get our glow from a bottle and not from harmful UV rays. For tanning newbies, or those who want a glow they can build on, the Gradual Tan line from James Read is the one to try.

James Read Tan combines the benefits of luxury skincare with a natural golden tan to suit all skin tones. The products are easy to apply and are all about making your skin look and feel beautiful.

As a professional spray tan artist (and a recognized influencer in tanning trends worldwide), James has worked with some extraordinary people, from top photographers and designers like Tom Ford, Burberry and Sophia Webster, not to mention Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington Whitely, Ellie Goulding and Mariah Carey. Here are the details on our team’s two fav products available at Melmira!
