Vita Liberata Trystal Bronzing Minerals – Sunkissed*

Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals - Sunkissed 3

If there’s one piece of makeup I reach for on a daily basis, it has to be bronzer. Even if I’m just popping out for one of my all too regular coffees, or just the gym, a quick swipe makes me feels more human. So, when I heard about Vita Liberata’s Trystal Bronzing Minerals which act as a subtle fake tan, as well as a bronzer, I knew I had to give them a go!

Complete with the world’s softest kabuki brush, and packaged in a large screw top jar, the Trystal Bronzing Minerals are a super finely milled powder which contain micronised crystals for sheer, lightweight bronzing coverage as well as DHA for a lasting tan. If you’re pretty minimalist when it comes to your makeup, this is such a great choice as the tan lasts for up to five days after application!

For best results, I tend to opt for the Trystal Bronzing Minerals on days that I’m just wearing a bit of moisturiser. After allowing my cream to sink in, I simply swirl the kabuki brush around the lid of the Bronzing Minerals jar, and apply as normal. Since the formula is so lightweight, it applies like an absolute dream, and gives you a super believable glow. The colour of the powder is perfection – it’s not too warm or muddy, instead it just gives a really beautiful, natural looking tan.

When the Trystal Bronzing Minerals were released earlier this year, they sold out in two weeks, and I’m really not surprised! The finish they have when worn as a bronzer is gorgeous – the perfect amount of colour and coverage, and they are such a no fail way of applying facial fake tan! Even after cleansing, the Trystal Bronzing Minerals give skin a super natural wash of colour. Worn daily, the bronzer can also be used to really personalise your colour – it’s genius!

Vita Liberata Trystal Bronzing Minerals are priced at £35.00 and are available here (UK) and here (US)

Xen-Tan Mist Intense*

Naturally, my skin sits somewhere between porcelain and paper white. It doesn’t really bother me too much, but when summer hits, I like to get a bit of colour. I never go too dark – my preference is a nice golden glow that looks healthy rather than baked.

Xen-Tan’s Mist Intense is perfect if, like me, your after a wash of colour, but have somewhat klutzy tendencies. Rather than having to play around with foams, creams and gels, the Mist Intense only needs a couple of squirts to dispense the colour. It’s genius, and I especially appreciate it when I’m tanning areas like my back, shoulders and legs. Since the Xen-Tan Mist Intense is the darkest shade offered, I feel like it has some slimming properties too!

After a thorough shower exfoliation, I use the Mist Intense on my legs, and all over the back of my body. The spray nozzle is super easy to use, and it disperses the formula evenly, meaning I don’t have to worry about being a streaky mess in the morning. After I’ve sprayed on the tan, I like to buff it in using the Xen-Tan Tanning Mit (review to come). Unlike a lot of tanning formulas, this has a sweet vanilla scent which isn’t too strong, and I just love the fact that the tan develops in about three hours! Another major plus is that Xen-Tan’s Mist Intense lasts for about a week, so I don’t have to worry about looking pale for days at a time!

Xen-Tan is on offer right now for £19.20 normally £24.00 and is available from M&S Beauty and here for US readers.
