|Vita Liberata’s Sheer Tinted Self-Tan Mousse|
I love the look of a healthy golden tan, but I refuse to
bake myself in the hot sun like a ham roasting in an oven. My skin is too
precious to me to deliberately risk it to harmful UVA and UVB rays that can
provide that burnished look as well as prematurely age me. As a result, I
gained the barest minimum of a tan with just a tinge of extra color since I
never go outdoors without a sunscreen. When I was contacted to see if I would be
interested in trying Vita Liberta’s self-tanning products, I was curious
to see if I could even myself out and sport the kind of golden-bronze tan I have
always longed for.
I thought it would be best if I started with my body from
the bottom up. Therefore, I grabbed my loofah in the shower and thoroughly
exfoliated my skin before I began. This is an important step to help get rid
of dead skin and provide a smoother, even surface for the mousse.
Vita Liberata’s Tinted Self-Tan Mousse is
extremely kind without worrying about possible toxic ingredients. This
product has 80% organic extracts, no parabens, perfume, or alcohol so your skin
can really thrive.
Once I dried off, I reached for that nominated Vita
Liberata Tinted Self-Tan Mousse in Sheer (Medium) and sprayed
out a small handful of this airy foam on the tanning mitt that also was sent
along. Hurrying, I started near my ankles and worked my way up using a
circular motion until I had a light, even coat.
No nasty smell was involved either because this tanner was
odorless with certified organic botanicals for maximum skin moisturizing
benefits. I must admit that I am no expert with self-tanning products, but using
the tanning mitt made it so much easier to distribute and avoid
streaks. This same procedure was how I handled the rest of me.
This product dried fairly quickly. However, it takes
anywhere from four to eight hours for the true color to emerge so I had no clue
how dark the Sheer choice of (Medium) golden bronze tan would
become until later. Intense Tinted Self-Tan Mousse is the deepest version.
The next morning, however, I possessed a healthy dose
of realistic color. The Sheer (Medium) gave me a beautiful degree
of golden bronze color to balance me off like I just came from a vacation. In my case, I think the Intense shade with my light olive
coloring would have been too dark.
I definitely want this same tan again. I will be
picking up a new bottle because I want to maintain this new gorgeous glow all
year round because it is incredible.
