Fake tanning with Elemis and Vita Liberata

Call me a cliche, but I do love it when the sun comes out. Everything's just so much nicer and with so many new places to explore in London, it truely feels like I'm on holiday sometimes. The only problem is after months of hiding away in jeans I'm far from summer ready, so for the last few weeks I've been using these 3 products from Elemis and Vita Liberata for some much needed colour:

Elemis total glow bronzing moisturiser for face, Elemis total glow bronzing body lotion, Vita Liberate nkd skn matte wash off instant tan
Elemis total glow and Vita Liberate nkd skn fake tan

If I know the weather's going to be nice then a few days before I'll start with Elemis Total glow bronzing moisturiser for face and the matching body lotion. Both are gradual tanners so you can build up the colour slowly, then top up every couple of days as required. Being a more subtle tan, it's much harder to go wrong and as I'm super paranoid about streaking my face, the bronzing moisturiser in particular is a welcome new addition. I like that both products have a fresh citrus floral scent and with essential oils and plant extracts it helps to hydrate and even out the skintone too, doubling up nicely as my usual night cream and body lotion.

Quite often I'll get caught out though, after all living in the UK it's not uncommon to get one day of sunshine in between weeks of dull grey weather. For those days I like to have Vita Liberata nkd skin matte wash off instant tan on stand by. It's a tinted gel fluid which stains rather quickly (so I always use a mitt to apply), but the upside is once dried, it leaves behind a beautifully bronzed waterproof tan on the skin. I've yet to experience any problems with it rubbing off or streaking, but as always I'd avoid wearing anything white just in case. It doesn't have that typical stale biscuit smell, and being an instant tan the great thing is you can just wash off and reapply if you make any mistakes.

Have you tried any of the Elemis/Vita Liberata fake tans? What are your top tips for a summer glow?
