Terracotta Sun Scrub ($65.00)
This luscious exfoliator is the perfect accessory to an even, long-lasting tan. Effective for all stages of tanning, the Terracotta Sun Scrub not only prepares skin for tanning but helps it retain its sun-kissed look longer. The secret to its success lies in the formula, comprised of 3 different particles. Upon contact with water, the 3 particles transform the oil-based gel into a body milk which work to remove dead cells, massaging the skin and leaving it satin-smooth and radiant, the perfect conditions for tanning. Once the skin is sun-kissed, the Terracotta Sun Scrub works to enhance your tan by increasing its intensity and luminosity.
Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel ($52.00)
Remarkable for its ultra-penetrating texture, this two-in-one tinted gel provides a double action: it offers the illusion of an instant tan and moisturized, evened-out skin. Using a subtle concentration of DHA and organic Argan oil, the Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel simply needs to be smoothed over the body—the only evidence of a sun-kissed illusion is the bottle! Best of all, the Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel is visible after only 1 hour, but lasts up to 4 days.
Terracotta Jambes de Gazelle ($59.00)
Lightly scented with the fragrance of tiare flower, this tinted spray mist refreshes the legs and leaves them feeling cooled and relaxed. Drying instantly, Jambes de Gazelle provides beautiful legs without any risk of clothing stain or product transfer, yet washes off with soap and water.
Terracotta Sun Serum ($59.00)
The resounding success of Sun Serum has inspired a new bottle, the design inspired by Guerlain’s classic Coconut Oil Soap. The bottle will also be fitted with a metalized brown dropper to ensure the amounts dispersed are exactly as needed. This remarkable serum is your loyal ally in acquiring, deepening and prolonging a tan. Adding a few drops of this honey-coloured serum to your normal skincare product will instantly transform it into a tan booster, fifteen times higher than that of other tan boosters. In the palm of your hand, blend 2 drops with your normal skincare product (or 4 drops in your body care product) and apply. That’s all there is to it! Day by day, you will gradually acquire a lovely, long-lasting healthy glow.
Availability: Guerlain’s Terracotta collection is available beginning March 2013 at select locations of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman.
