Why is Fake Bake The Face a Harknett Must-Have? 

Our Global Creative Consultant James Harknett says, 

“We are all so clued-up now when it comes to beauty, skincare and tanning, and so The Face is perfect for clients who want to build a golden glow without sacrificing skincare benefits. The colour guide means you get an even coverage over the face and neck, and while you sleep The Face gets to work. The best thing you can ever do for your complexion is to avoid sun damage, and this formula naturally adapts to create its own highlights and contours.”

    I love this product, it goes on really well and doesn't highlight pores on my nose. I.put it on at nighttime instead of my moisturiser & skin feels great, wake up and look healthy & tanned.
