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
