It is the unicorn of my beauty closet.

By: Zoë Mills


Since using the Vita Liberata line I have stopped wearing concealer, foundation, face powder, eye shadow, blush, and highlighter. My Vita Liberata Trystal Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals has replaced all of these. It glides on smoothly, leaving a sheen, and lightweight mineral finish. My face feels free, like it can breathe, no longer masked under layers of foundation or harsh cover-ups. The best part: it contains no parabens, harsh chemicals, perfumes, alcohols, animal derivatives, petrochemicals, sulphates, or silicones.

Vita Liberata directly translates to “Life Freed”. The line’s Self Tanning Anti Age Serum is the cornerstone behind Alicia Key’s no-makeup look. You can check out more of Vita Liberata’s products online, or in Sephora stores across Canada.



About the Brand


Developed by Irish-native Alyson Hogg, in an effort to combine natural self-tanning with skin care, Vita Liberata is ‘Science meets beauty with conscience’. It is the world’s very first, non-toxic, 80% organic self-tanning system that doesn’t dramatically alter, but only enhances, one’s natural skin tones. The gradual richening, and tanning, of the skin is subtle and effortless. What’s more, it is so natural that it is a product that can be used by any skin tone, or colour, to achieve a warm glow - working with your body’s unique melanin levels to achieve a shade that is just right for you – uniquely beautiful you.
