Being bronzed is becoming a bit of an addiction of mine at the moment. I can’t go anywhere with work without making sure I have a self tanner in my suitcase to keep my arms and legs looking bronzed. The only problem is, I keep forgetting my face. I dip in and out of using my Clarins Radiance Booster drops, but I forget to add the drops until after I’ve put my moisturiser on. Epic failing from Anoushka there. When I heard of the newest innovation from the golden goddesses at Vita Liberata, I knew instantly that this was the product for me. The Vita Liberata Trystal is an absolute genius way of adding false tan to your face, without streaks and getting tan caught in your brows and hair line.
The unique concept uses Trystal technology within a sunkissed mineral bronzer that leaves skin looking tanned and healthy. The DHA within the powder develops on the skin whilst you wear the oil free powder, and develops into a tan that lasts around five days. The powder is very sheer once applied to the face yet can be built up in areas. I like to fake a contour and let the tan develop that little bit deeper in the hollows of my cheeks. It can be applied over a moisturised face or once you have put on your liquid foundation.
It’s a very natural tan once it has developed, with many of my friends asking me where I have been to get such a tan rather than what am I using on my face. This makes me very happy, as you can tell that it’s working, without looking like you’ve gone overboard on the false tan. The only downside of the mineral powder is that I find the smell of the tan to be quite overpowering. It quickly disappears once you’ve buffed it into your face but the initial opening of the tub does take you aback.
The luxury kabuki brush that comes with Vita Liberata Trystal is worth a whopping £35, and the silky soft hairs of the domed brush ensure that the powder is distributed evenly across the face. I keep this brush just for applying Trystal as the tan will be present in any left over powder on the brush. I use Trystal twice to three times a week to build up the colour and when I feel that I am looking too sunkissed, I stop using it for a few days before starting again. It is very easy to control the deepness of the tan this way.
Vita Liberata Trystal is £35 so it’s not the cheapest of facial tanners on the market but the unique concept and ease of use makes it worth the price tag.
