Vita Liberata Self Tanning Travel kit

 Vita Liberata Travel Tanning Kit

I was very lucky recently and won this in a beauty on trial competition. I have reviewed a few of the items on the site but struggled to find the others on line in order to list the products on the site to review so thought I would do a blog instead.

This set arrived packed in a lovely little bag with a zip closure. The bag is silky feeling outside but lined and quite sturdy so a very handy bag to use as a toilet bag after you have finished the products inside it. The bag has a nice handle too so easy to carry from room to room.

Inside the bag there were six items

The first was a Hand Mitt for applying the tanning lotions. This is quite small and stretchy nylon on one side and a kind of suede finish on the other. This needs to be washed between uses but does stop you getting tanned palms and fingers which is not a good look as it looks a bit like nicotine stains!!

The next item was a 30 ml brown tube with an exfoliator called a Super Fine Skin Polish. This is a white creamy consistency with ground shells as the scrubby bits. It doesn’t have much of a scent and personally I find it quite a gentle scrub and prefer something with salt or sugar to give a bit more scrubby action before I use a self tanning product. It doesn’t strip my skin as there seems to be some sort of moisturising ingredient which I believe is jojoba oil in it too. It costs £11.25 for 175ml.

The next item is Deep Untinted Self Tan Lotion which comes in a cylinder with a push pump dispenser. This hold 75 ml but on amazon this appears to be in a different tube and holds 200 m for £15 so maybe I have the older packaging as this does not appear anywhere I could find on line.

The fact this is untinted makes it quite hard to tell where you have applied it. I find it best to use a circular motion and go back and forth to make sure no bits are missed.

I then do not put any clothes on for around five to ten minutes to give it a chance to dry and settle otherwise I have found that I have got stripes on patches where my clothes have rubbed some off.

I didn’t find this had a strong scent at all and certainly not that false tan aroma that you can smell for days.  It gave a nice deep yet natural colour and not tango orange at all and this lasted a good week using lots of moisturiser and having a shower every morning and bath at night too.

The next item was a Deep Face Untinted Self Tanning Gel which looked like a face moisturiser and again being untinted made it hard to know where you had applied this.  This did give a deep tan which as I am fair made me look as though I had been to Tenerife for a holiday. It wasn’t shocking but did look as though I’d just come back from somewhere hot and sat in a beach lounger the whole time. This also lasted a good week and didn’t fade with that blotchy look that some do either.

My tube held 30 ml and I couldn’t find this on amazon or any other site.

Finally there were two tubes each holding 30 ml of a lovely moisture boost body treatment which is basically a nice moisturising body lotion. Mine comes in a brown plastic tube while the new one seems to be in a pale green tube. On amazon this sells for £11.25 for 175 ml.

This is a lovely nourishing lotion that contains certified organic botanicals for skin nourishment. It locks in moisture for amazingly soft and conditioned skin and a subtle shimmer to accentuate your tan.

This is a lovely set of products that I am enjoying using to give me that holiday look without sun damage. These products are from a company that makes more natural products so these are not full of parabens and chemicals

Elemis Aromapure Sunwise Tan Accelerator SPF4

With winter now leaving us and our thoughts turn to warmer weather and booking our holidays I wanted to recommend to you one of my favourite summer products!

I am a huge fan of tan accelerators and this one by Elemis not only works but conditions your skin at the same time! For those of you that have not discovered tan accelerators yet they are fabulous and effective products. When you skin is exposed to natural sunlight it begins to push the natural melanin produced by the skin cells to the surface. It can normally take up to 3 days for this process to complete and as we age this process slows down even more. During this time your skin is largely unprotected by the harmful sun’s rays and this is the point that most of us experience sunburn. Tan accelerators actually boost the melanin production in the skin and aids you to miss out the susceptible days when the skin is trying to protect itself naturally. In short you can 'skip' the tanning curve.

This is what Elemis says about this product

"Prepare the body for exposure to the sun by stimulating its natural melanin production. Fragrant Tahitian Gardenia and Jojoba Oil leave skin beautifully conditioned. Elemis Tan Accelerator is Excellent for both sun-sensitive skin and for prolonging your tan."

How to Use for Elemis Tan Accelerator SPF4?

"Apply Tanning Accelerator to the body daily about 2 weeks before your vacation or summer arrives."

Highlighted Ingredients: Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut Oil, Jojoba, Glucose Tyrosinate.

This tan accelerator by Elemis comes in a beautiful metallic gold soft squeeze tube with a silver lid and is 125ml in size. The tube is 100% recyclable. It normally retails at around £19.00.

Above is my half used tube

The product is a runny consistency cream which is a light beige colour. The scent is actually quite pleasant with extracts of fragrant Tahitian Gardenia. It is a sweet and delicate fragrance. It also contains Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut Oil and Jojoba to moisturise the skin and nourish the skin. I use this product daily for 4 weeks before my holidays, although Elemis states that you should begin 1-3 weeks before. Application is really easy and your skin absorbs the product beautifully. Your skin is left with a dewy glow with no traces of greasiness or sticky reside. It also leaves your skin beautifully soft, smooth and moisturised.

Once you reach your sunny holiday destination you will find that you do not burn the way you normally would without treatment. This is of course providing you are sensible. This product does contain an SP4 but it is not designed to replace your normal high factor sun protection. This should be applied in conjunction with this product. I continue use throughout my holiday and on my return. In doing so this prolongs my tan dramatically in comparison to normal moisturising.

If you have never tried a tan accelerator before I would highly recommend this product. It may not be the cheapest option but it contains no harsh chemicals or parabens and does a superior job of speeding up and deepening the tanning process without endangering your precious skin in the process.

I can highly recommend this product!!
