There is a new self-tanner in town, and I am in love. Vita Liberata recently showed up at Sephora and I was hearing rave reviews. The sophisticated and simple packaging evoke the company mission of brilliant chemistry working to create the best tan while still being a a joy to use.
I’ve been using pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse in Medium and Untinted Self Tan Lotion For Body in Warm. The Tan Mousse comes in Light, Medium and Dark, while the Untinted Self Tan comes in Warm, Deep and Deeper Deep. I’ve found both shades I am using work for my light-medium skin tone.
The pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse in Medium is featherweight and has some serious long-term staying power. Using pHenO2 technology, this formula gives an immediate and odorless color. (Yep, I really promise these have no odor) The drying time was impressive and I wasn’t concerned with wearing (mostly dark) clothing shortly after application. Marine and organic botanical extracts work to allow the tan to last up to four times longer than regular tans. I’m still going strong midway through week two of this tan.
Untinted Self Tan Lotion For Body in Warm also is odorless and dries in a jiff. Since this is untinted, I had no fear throwing on even the lightest colored clothing. This formula is nourishing but not overly thick, working as a moisturizer. In about four hours, I had developed a glowing bronze. I think this self-tanner has given me the most natural looking tan out of the dozens I have tried. It also contains marine and organic botanicals to condition skin.
I’ve had great luck applying both of these formulas with a tanning mitt. I am a big believer these are worth investing in. They protect the palms and allow for the most beautiful, streak-free blending of self-tanner. And it should be noted that Vita Liberata products are dermatologically tested, and gluten- and cruelty-free.
