I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with self tanners. Yes, I always use them during the summer, but I hate the application process. It takes less than 10 minutes for me to tan my entire body so it’s not time consuming, but I hate the waiting part afterwords and the horrible smell. With my annual beach vacation just around the corner, I decided to try a new self tanner called Vita Liberata Luxury Tan. My friend keeps raving about this so I decided to try it out. I chose to try the pHenomenal 2-3 week tan in Dark, which means that the tan actually lasts for 2-3 weeks! Amazing right?
The self-tanner is a mousse, which I always find the easiest to apply with a tanning mitt. It’s easy to squirt out the same amount for each leg and arm, making the tan look even throughout the body. The first thing I noticed is the smell, or actually, the lack of. This is truly the first self-tanner I’ve used that doesn’t have that offensive odor, and because of that, you can actually apply it during the day and go about your business without smelling like self-tanner all day long.
The fast-absorbing mousse formula gives instant natural bronzing and develops to a deep, natural-looking tan, that lasts up to four times longer than regular tans. I am currently on week two and my tan is still going strong. Vita Liberata does recommend for a longer lasting tan, to apply three times over 12 to 24 hours, showering with only water before each application, but I think that might be too dark for me. Just one application gave me a gorgeous natural-looking bronze tan, so I didn’t want to mess that color up. Overall, this is the best self-tanner I have tried to date. It is fast-absorbing, easy to use and the color lasts longer than any other tanner I have ever tried. All Vita Liberata products are made with organic botanicals and a unique Moisture Lock™ system that draw water to the skin’s surface and provide up to 72 hours of hydration. Skin looks soft and glowy after each application. If you’re in to self-tanning, definitely give this one a try and let me know your thoughts.
