Looking for a fast bronzer with a scented glow? Then the Bronz' Express range of tinted instant self-tans with ylang-ylang and citrus extracts may be just what you want. The makers say it is easily applied with a wad of cotton wool or sponge and does not block the pores. It is suitable for even the most sensitive skins. The tan lasts for at least two days and can be reapplied two to three times a week to maintain the colour. Other products from the range include a tinted face cream (18.50), a tinted body mousse (25.50) and tinted body milk (23.95). They promise to leave the skin glowing immediately with a very natural colour with the definitive tan developing two or three hours later. The Bronz' Express range is available from pharmacies, beauty salons and department stores nationwide. For full stockist information call (046) 9481091. Hit the deck this season with some of the top nautical looks from Roches Stores. The emphasis is on short, sharp, boxy jackets, rope detailing and the strong use of crisp linens in neutral shades. This naval theme is easily achieved with classic striped Tshirts, navy and white wide leg and cropped trousers, and sailor collars. Almost all of the international designers have included the cropped jacket in their s u m m e r collections. Keep an eye out for the one that suits y o u
best. Available in a wide range of fabrics they are perfect for daywear or to wear over light separates on cool summer evenings. Inspirations from past seasons include the use of silks, cottons and crochet detailing. Tiered skirts, pretty floral retro patterns, floppy hats, waistcoats and headscarves feature heavily in the top summer styles. The Bohemian look pays homage to global influences - tribal, African, peasant, Indian (mirrored detailing, embroidery and sequins). The sultry seductive gypsy look can be seen fused with boho chic through the overplaying of accessories, exotic shells and metallic leathers. This season also sees the return of vibrant colours with bold patterns and stripes.
