Give the Gift of Luxurious, World-Class Self-Tanning for the Holidays: Review of Vita Liberata

Updated on December 3, 2016

Perhaps your current lifestyle doesn't allow you to do a great deal of globe-trotting at the moment. Don't fret! It's like the saying goes, "Fake it 'til you make it." A glossy, real-looking tan makes you appear more active, thinner and let's just say it like it is: richer. So, it's not surprising that the most jet-set spas in the world -- like George V Paris, St Regis, Viceroy, Ritz-Carlton and Burj Al Arab -- use Vita Liberata, the gold standard of self-tanning products. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

Self-tanner fell out of public favor, because so many brands were problematic. They not only had a rotting flesh odor coming out of the container, but they also made your skin smell rancid for days. You wouldn't even know if you had missed entire swathes of your body with tanner, because the color didn't develop until the next day. When the color did appear, it was invariably a deep pumpkin color . . . not too sexy. You were almost relieved that it sweated off and pilled off within a couple of days.

But let's face it: a glossy tan makes you look thinner, more athletic and, well, richer. It says that you get out and about! If you're trying to find a unisex gift that will be appreciated by a wide range of people, this is it!

pHenomenal is the first 2-3 week tanner on the market. It pumps out in a mousse consistency, making it easy to spread. It's tinted, so you see exactly how much and where you are applying. Use their handy tanning mitt and you'll never have to worry about tan palms again. It dries within a minute or so, removing fears of staining your linens. The formula comes in Fair, Medium and Dark.

This product is made with 70% organic extracts to help contribute to natural fading . It doesn't have an odor, either.

While glowing tans look youthful, dry tans come off old and leathery. Vita Liberata has a product to help with that, too! Moisture Boost Body Treatment is a creamy, non-greasy, unscented treat for your body. Though it's not recommended to use it all over prior to using pHenomenal, you can apply a touch to extra dry patches to avoid uneven color. I also use it to blur tan edges, for an extra realistic result. The cream is made with natural flower and fruit extracts and oils.

5 stars for Vita Liberata
