Vita Liberata | Tanning Water


So since I’ve received two bottles of the Vita Liberata Tanning Water from various PR companies, I thought I’d write up a review and guys I feel like I’ve found THE fake tan that I’ll wear on my wedding day because it’s just so darn good.

Vita LiberataI’ve tried this over the majority of the Summer and I can’t count the amount of times that friends have complimented me on my tan, with many of them thinking I’ve actually been on holiday. Sob, I haven’t.

The first time I was introduced to the Vita Liberata brand was when I attended a John Lewis event and they were promoting the brand to all of the bloggers that attended. In the goodie bag was a luxurious box with the Vita Liberata Tanning Water, the Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish and a logo branded tanning mitt. Vita Liberata is on the high-end scale of fake tan in my opinion. It’s one that rivals the Skinny Tan price tag – but I’ve still yet to try that one – and I can honestly say it’s worth the price.

I was new to tanning water but this actually turns into a foamy mousse rather than being just a liquid fake tan. I actually prefer a mousse because it’s a little easier to spread and I find doesn’t streak as much as liquid fake tan does. The tanning water is buildable and even though this is Medium to Dark, it actually compliments my fair skin tone really well.

Firstly, I love how natural this tan looks on the skin. It doesn’t have that distinct smell of fake tan, it’s not orange and has a more warm pigmentation on the skin. Like many fake tans, you leave this on for 4-8 hours and it’s promise is that it lasts for 7 days. I’ve been using it on both my face and body and although it’s quick to go on my face (which is expected when you wash and remove makeup everyday), the tan on my body does last for around 5-7 days.

There is a little transfer onto some of my clothes so I’d encourage you to wash it all off properly, making sure the water in your shower runs clear before you start towel drying off. The Tanning Water costs £25.00 on it’s own and comes in Light/Medium, Medium/Dark (which is what I had) and Super Dark. For those with really fair skin, I’d stick with your Light/Medium but go with Medium/Dark if you have dark features like myself. I’m also tempted to try the Super Dark as I feel as though it would actually work on my skin tone without me looking too un-natural. 

I also got sent the Body Blur Instant HD Finish (£29.95) which is unlike anything I’ve tried before. It’s a finishing cream that you can wear on top of the fake tan or without it and essentially, it blurs away any imperfections on the skin, leaving a glowy, matte finish. I’m obsessed with this and considering I only have to use a few dollops of it across my body, it’ll remain a strong feature in my fake tanning routine for a while.

Most recently, I got the Self Tanning Anti-Aging Serum (£29.00) and I tried it out during my week off work. I’m still fairly new to the product but I love the subtle glow that the serum adds to my complexion. After applying the serum, I wait for it to dry before applying my makeup and I have noticed that I have a healthier and more glowy appearance.

I must say that I really am quite obsessed with this brand and I will definitely be re-purchasing their Tanning Water and Body Blur Cream for the next season and for my wedding. What do you think of Vita Liberata? Let me know in the comments below.
