Let me just cut straight to the point. The Vita Liberata Body Blur is my favourite beauty purchase in a very, very long time. I am so happy I found it but almost upset at myself for only trying it recently. I have seen this on blogs and social media for a fair while now but for some reason I just never got around to buying it. Well I have it now and I want to tell you all about it. Q the rave review….
So Body Blur is described as an instant HD skin finish with 24 hour wear. It is also said to be a body makeup that perfects the skin, gives the skin a natural tint while reflecting light for a photo-ready finish. It is a wash off formula so it doesn’t tint the skin.
Let me tell you why I love this so much:
-My favourite thing about this is the handiness of it. You don’t need to be precise with the application and you don’t need to worry about staining your hands. I literally slap this on with my hands and blend it in with my fingers and everytime it is perfect. No streaks, no uneven skin tone. It is simply perfection. I use this daily now as part of my morning routine It literally takes me an extra 5 minutes maximum but the results are beautiful. It effortlessly washes off your hands too with some soap and water.
-The colour is beautiful. It isn’t super dark nor is it too light. It gives the perfect wash of colour and adds a glow that J Lo would be envious of. I use this over my fake tan to even out any patches I am unhappy with. I also use it for extra colour or to my untanned (pale) skin to take that pasty look away. It works so well for both.
-Not only does it give a fab colour but it actually works at hiding imperfections. I found it lessened the look of spider veins on the back of my legs and also reduced the look of any cellulite. Anything than does this is a winner for me.
-I was conscious that this is a wash off formula which often means it will transfer onto clothes. I have to say I have not had much of an issue with transferring. If I get dressed instantly after using it I might get a small amount on my clothes but the majority of it remains intact. I am not sure if this would transfer onto white but if it didn’t I would highly recommend this for a bride to give that heavenly glow we all want on our big day. Just test it with white before the big day. It is a waterproof formula too.
-I have used this as a primer under my foundation when my face was very pale and it just added a beautiful finish to the skin. I had no issues with breakouts or dryness afterwards.
-The formula is free from parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol, silicones and all the other things we all try to avoid now a days.
-I am very conscious of my skin at the moment and the damage the sun can do to it. I plan to get a spray tan before I go away to the sun next. However, I am worried that it won’t last or it will become patchy in the intense heat. However, I believe with Body Blur that I can now cover any imperfections and areas my tan has worn off before heading out. This way I can stay protected from the sun while still having a glowing, even tan.
Can you see why I love it so much? It truly is my favourite body product ever. Coming from someone who just isn’t an instant tan type of gal, that is a massive statement. But there are a few things I would change or alter about this product….
-When first applied there isn’t any obvious glitter present but as the day goes on and the formula adapts to my skin I do see some sparkles when I look closer. This doesn’t bother me too much but I kind of wish they didn’t exist. I like glitter at night but not when I am trying to fake that “naturally perfect” look during the day.
-Until I tried this I thought the price was a little steep. At around €37 for 100ml I was reluctant to see why I would need this in my routine for that price. As you can tell, after using this I am hooked and will not hesitate about the price the next time I need to restock.
-My one pet peeve about this product is actually the packaging. Although I do like the tube as it is easy to use I am not a fan of how the tube leaks once the top is off. I just wish it was in a pump bottle or something for ease of use and to avoid spillages.
I also have the pHenomenal 2-3 week (yep it lasts 2-3 weeks) tan to try but I want to get this in the mousse formula as I have the lotion and I also want to try the Trystal Minerls Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals. If you have tried either please let me know, I would love some feedback before I buy them.
Have you tried Body Blur before? What are your thoughts? I bet you will find it hard to resist purchasing this if you are a fake tan fan like me right?
I give this a 4 out of 5 rating!! Don’t forget to rate it below!!!
