Review: Vita Liberata Gradual Self Tan In Light/Clair

It's time to review another self tan! ps. sorry about the picture lighting (it was taken at night)

I did a lot of research a month or so ago on gradual fake tans that don't smell. I was getting sick of waking up with that horrid biscuit smell or some other strong scent (even Xen Tan has a scent) and so I found Vita Liberata.
Vita Liberata do a range of fake tans, even one that claims to last 2 - 3 weeks!

This particular option out of the range is "untinted" which means you DONT get a guide colour. To be honest I find that a good thing, you don't really expect to have an instant colour with a gradual tanner. Also in this range you get a choice of mousse or cream, I have the cream version.
In other reviews it states to use a tanning mit, and I totally agree! This gradual tanner can easily be applied using hands, but to make sure I have a perfectly smooth result I use a mit!

When I wake up in the morning I am left looking like I've been on holiday. I always take a shower and there is still quite a noticeable colour change after one application.  Even though I am using the lightest version, I feel this tan does what darker tans do in other brands eg. the dark version of the garnier gradual tan.
The colour isn't orange (which I have got with cheaper gradual tanners). I hardly have any streeking which is probably because I use a mit.

This is becoming my favourite fake tans because it fades so nicely! I haven't had any patchiness. The tan lasts a couple of days with one application.

Overall thoughts ?!
I really really really like this gradual tanner! I would recommend it to everyone apart from really pale people that are scared to tan. I have only used this a couple of times, but I feel it has already became part of my favouites. You can buy this tan for around £12 from Boots.

Have you tried this tan??
What's your favourite tanning brand?

  1. I've heard really good things about this one..always been curious, so thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  2. I've not heard of this tan so I'm definitely going to look out for it next time I'm in Boots. I really like U-Tan which you can also get from Boots, that's become one of my favourites recently :)
