Capture the Light with Vita Liberata Translucent Rose Skinfinish

I love the look of a bright glossy leg; I think it looks healthy, glamorous, and also draws the eye. A highlight at the front of the leg can also make it longer and slimmer, as any bits that aren't quite as toned as you'd like seem to almost disappear into the shadows. I might already have a touch of the Winter Blues, but I'm always looking for the perfect product to achieve a glow all year round, so was really intrigued to see these Skin Perfecting Illuminisors from Vita Liberata. These are a purpose-made alternative to diluted shimmery moisturisers or body oils that can make your skin feel greasy and leave you stuck to your seat.

The Capture The Light collection features a group of products in translucent and opaque finishes that act as skin finishers to illuminate the body with iridescence. Available in shades from Translucent Rose through to Opaque Latte, there's a colour to suit every skin tone, and Translucent Rose* is the perfect highlight for my fair skin. The Skin Finish contains SPF25 and has 80% organic ingredients, and with its water based mousse-cream texture it doesn't feel oily on the skin. Applied sparingly, the weightless pale cream needs to be well blended into the skin with the fingers, and dries to a finish that is slightly shimmery but very iridescent.
This cream is perfect to apply to arms, legs and d├ęcolletage, and the sturdy plastic bottle makes it easy to pump the product out even when my hands are covered in cream. Applied in a blended line to the front of my calfs and thighs, and to the tops of my arms, I'm left with a glowing illuminated finish to the skin that instantly makes me look more healthy and put together. As this product provides a higher level of illumination than the types can be used on the body but designed for the face, it's perfect for nights out and events where you want to show a bit of skin, and really want to show it off.

I would suggest swatching these before buying if you can as, although the translucent Rose and Gold shades don't provide any coverage, the opaque shades are more of a bronzing product on lighter skin tones and can appear quite dark if you don't already have a tan. The pump bottles contain 30ml, the size of a bottle of foundation, but because only a small amount is needed (and it's more of a special occasion product than everyday) the bottle will last you a long time, and you'll still be reaching for it frequently come the sunshine of next spring!
Vita Liberata is the brand behind one of my favourite self tans- Extra Rich Silken Chocolate, and the Capture the Light range is definitely another winner. The Vita Liberata Capture the Light Illuminating Skinfinishes are available for £29.95 from Debenhams and Cult Beauty.
