Get Red Carpet Worthy Glow with Vita Liberata

S_PHENOMENAL MEDIUM_2-3_WEEK_SELF TAN MOUSSE

I have paper white skin in winter and can’t live without sunless tanner come the warmer days of late Winter and early Spring. But anyone who has used sunless tanners knows how great they vary in quality from Oompa Loompa orange to beautiful bronze. So I was excited to check out Vita Liberata’s pHenomenal 2-3 week tan mousse which is a red carpet regular for celebs wanting to look their best for award shows.

I have tried a few of the Vita Liberata tanning products and loved them I was excited to see how this mousse would work. This mousse has to be my new favorite self tanning product its the look of an airbrushed tan at home. The mousse is really light and easy to apply with the mitt. I love that it doesn’t have any weird tanner smell and the color guide makes application a cinch.

New! Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

murad invisblur

Yes, yes a million times yes! As I was putting on my many layers of creams and serums yesterday I thought why the heck are there so many and why do none of them have an SPF. Murad heard my call and the mailman delivered a bottle that contains everything I need in one step!

The new Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is a broad spectrum SPF 30. So it protects my skin from future damage while improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles and my skins texture. And the serum is so light and silky it feels like silk going on and leaves my skin so smooth. It works great with makeup or alone. Seriously this stuff is fantastic. I will update how its working on my skin and a few weeks use. Until then I need to plot what to do with all my extra time now that I don’t have to spackle layers of cream and SPF on every day.
