Welcome to another amazing blog post from the wonderful Polly from Politics of Pretty, this week we sent Polly a fabulous Vita Liberata Luxury Tan Fabulous Glow Kit. The below is how she got on with these beautiful tans….
Hello again my lovely readers,
Hope everyone is having a great week so far.... only one more sleep until the weekend- PHEW!
Which only means one thing- tan time!!
Yes girls, we all know the struggle, trying to get that summer glow all year round.
Well I have the answer.....
So the lovely Gordons Chemists sent me a beautiful tanning gift set of Vita Liberata goodies.
As a fan girl of all things tanning I was so excited to try this.
Firstly I have to say my personal preference for self-tanning is definitely a mousse. I feel like it goes on better to the skin and I prefer the consistency of the tan. The Vita Liberata mitt is the perfect partner for this tan, it is super soft and is machine washable.
TopTip : The key for me is to apply a good moisturiser about an hour before you apply your tan to have that smooth flawless finish.
The aspect about this tan that I found interesting was the shape of the pump nozzle- it was almost triangular which gave the packaging a sophisticated look, but also I found I was able to get an ample amount of product onto the mitt neatly.. Tell me I'm not the only one who has sprayed mousse all over my bathroom floor?
In terms of colour, this mousse is perfect if you like a buildable tan.
I decided to really put it to the test and layer it over a period of 3 days. One layer is a very natural glow which is gorgeous for midweek and during the day, but if you want to apply more on top of that layer it doesn't smudge or streak- YAY! I also found that with moisturising at night (I use coconut body butter from the body shop) really helped the tan last and it didn't wear off patchy... RESULT!
My only slight critique is that the drying time is a good 10 minutes… But you can’t rush perfection so I'm happy to flick through Instagram for 10 minutes to wait for it to dry.
I literally looked like i had been to Barbados for a week- it's the perfect holiday in a bottle!
The illuminate wash off tan is great for those quick fixes you need when you haven't had time to do a proper application- it goes on so well and gives you a lovely deep tan. Perfect for those spontaneous nights out with the girls- Verdict 10/10.
All in all, I'm really impressed with the brand and I think it has over taken my trusty St Tropez.
So girls if you need that 'Barbados in a bottle' head to your local Gordons Chemists and pick up some. To add to all the good news I have about this tan it also won’t break the bank. Gordons currently have both tans on offer... you can buy the mousse here:
The fabulous wash off tan can be bought here ALSO on offer :
Hope you have enjoyed my review and lots more to come from Politics of Pretty.
Lots of love
