So Vita Liberata has hit our shores just in time for tanning season. And I self tan, all Summer. Their pHenomenal is said to be long lasting , up to 3 weeks with 3 applications which really appeals to me. It's organic and odorless.
Let's test it out.
I applied per instructions in a circular pattern . Up, down , around. It dried in 5 minutes , had a nice not too dark , but very noticeable , bronze color. With the pHenomenal, you wash off with water the bronzer before re-applying. Then I did coat 2 the next day. You need to wait 3-8 hours between applications.
When the bronzer was washed off I was left with a light, natural looking tan. Nothing deep and a little paler than I like and this was using the dark formula. So building this is the way to go for me.
As for the lasting color, well that's where I had some issue. It's been about 7 days and I have little color left. That's about normal for all tanners with me but not quite extra long wear.
Vita Liberata does say everyone's skin reacts different with tanner, which is true. So your results may vary.
Overall though, I like this a lot. Many people still have fear of self tanner . This is practically goof proof and so anyone who's worried about looking orange or streaked, forget about it. No worries with Vita Liberata and that's a huge plus. Dress and go drying is a bonus as well, as is absolutely NO odor.
Also available is Sheer Tinted Mousse, equally easy, fast drying , streak and odor free with normal wear time.
