7 Days of Summer Beauty: Faking a Tan


I can only embrace the pale so much. No matter how hard I try to be content with my fair skin, my limbs are atrociously pasty come summer. I tried on a pair of shorts at J. Crew last month and realized that I needed to start the self-tanning ritual a.s.a.p. I had one of those moments in the fitting room that I’d rather forget. A little color goes a long way to making you look slimmer. My legs looked tremendously better in those shorts after a round with Vita Liberata pHenomenal tan mousse.

Vita Liberata just made its way from the UK to Sephora stateside. And it is a-maz-ing. Like totally changed my perspective on self-tanner amazing. It makes an otherwise arduous process tolerable due to the long wear. The pHenomenal tan mousse can last up to four times longer than any other self-tanner – anywhere from 2-3 weeks, depending on your skin! It works by slowly releasing DHA over time. I got a solid two weeks, which is about an entire week longer than anything else I’ve ever used. And once it began to fade, it did so evenly. To really jazz up the wear time closer to the three week mark, I used Vita Liberata’s Untinted Self Tan Lotion to subtly build color. It applies clear and then you wake up the next morning looking all golden. Worth noting, Vita Liberata uses organic botanical extracts in its formulas and has a virtually non-existent smell. I’ll definitely take my self-tanner with a side of shea butter, hyaluronic acid and raspberry seed extract. This has summer beauty MUST written all over it!
