I have a mixed relationship with Vita Liberata. I was left SO disappointed after using their pHenomenal 2-3 Week Fake Tan Mousse which promised a natural, glowing tan that would last 2-3 weeks, only to find that it disappeared after 2 days! (The bottle says that it works with the natural PH of your skin, so I can only assume that because my fair, freckly skin never tans naturally then perhaps this affected the power of the fake tan?)
Anyway, it is a very different story with the Vita Liberata Body Blur. This bottle of loveliness has a glowing tint in it that adds instant bronzed colour to the skin but is also designed to hydrate and blur any imperfections – like a BB cream for the body.
I love it because it dries SO quickly, doesn’t streak on clothes or bedding, is comfortable to wear and leaves the most gorgeous warm, bronzed, air-brushed colour that stays put all day until you wash it off. My fiancé loves this because he can hardly tell I’m wearing it, unlike when I wear a traditional sticky and smelly fake tan (sorry Marc).
It also works whatever your skin tone (apart from possibly black skin!) as on my naturally pale skin it leaves an even, natural bronze colour and on my fake-tanned skin it helps to enhance the colour and smooth my skin.
It is best applied with a tanning mitt so that you don’t have to spend ages afterwards scrubbing your hands in the sink and a little does go a long way.
This is one of the best instant body blurrers that I have ever tried, ideal if you want bronzed, hydrated and even skin that stays put and doesn’t stain!
