Self tanners have definitely evolved over the last 20 years but which ones are truly the best of the best? We all want even, natural color that’s long lasting and smells tolerable. Enter the new wave of tanning, Vita Liberate Luxury Tanners, an Irish based company that created the world’s first odorless tan in 2007. The unique Odor Remove technology is now present in all of their at-home self and salon spray tans. In 2011, they became the first completely non-toxic tanning brand, developing a collection of tan solutions free from parabens, perfume, alcohol and all chemicals of concern. They instantly give a natural color, even on very pale skin. You won’t look orange, in fact — the formulas will mold to your skin tone.
PHENOMENAL 2-3 WEEK TAN MOUSSE – MEDIUM ($54.00) is a super fast drying medium tanning mousse with pHenO2 Technology for the longest lasting, natural-looking tan result with instant colors and a tan that develops over 4-8 hours that lasts up to 2-3 weeks. One pump distributes a lot of product. It does have a slight scent but it’s not severe. Be sure to exfoliate but not moisturize. Use a tanning mitt ($6.50) or your hands to apply to skin in circular movements. Allow at least 4 – 8 hours before showering off with water. Replicate this process 2 more times for the longest lasting tan result. Color is instant and developed darker over time. With instant color you can automatically see where you are applying and avoid streaking. It fades like a natural tan, not in weird patches.
FABULOUS SELF TANNING GRADUAL LOTION ($30.00) For everyday skin hydration with a subtle sun-kissed glow — perfect for dry, sensitive and mature skin types. This scentless formula is much stronger than your average gradual self tanner. After 4-8 hours you’ll see instant dark color, which is not something you’ll normally see with gradual formulas. Because it’s scentless, and very moisturizing, you can easily use every day.
SELF TAN DRY OIL SPF 50 WITH MARULA (54.00) The world’s only self tan with SPF 50 broad spectrum protection. How great is that?! This luxurious self tanning dry oil applies with a subtle tint for an instant color boost and no missed spots. Gives a gradual tan for up to 10 days with buildable color. It wont stain clothes and adds that perfect glow to the perfect outfit.
“I made Marula self tan oil so that you could lavish your skin in luxurious dry oils, have high protection from sun exposure and meanwhile get a natural glowing tan that is both buildable and long lasting.” —Alyson Hogg, Founder Vita Liberata.
Apply to skin in long, circular movements and use sparingly on hands, feet, knees and elbows. For tanning, allow at least one hour before rinsing. For optimum tan results, wait 8 hours. Wash hands immediately after use or alternatively use a tanning mitt. If using as sun protection, apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every 2 hours.
TRYSTAL MINERALS SELF TANNING BRONZING MINERALS – BRONZE ($55.00) A world-first self-tanning bronzer that offers bronzing mineral coverage and a subtle lasting tan. It comes with a luxuriously soft kabuki brush that allows for easy application. Swirl the Kabuki brush in the powder and tap on the edge of the pot to evenly distribute the minerals. Applying over moisturizer or liquid foundation, blend the powder onto the face, neck and décolleté in sweeping movements. Use more around the cheekbones to achieve a contouring effect or a deeper tan result, apply more product to your face. The subtle tan effect will last 3-7 days, decide whether to reapply based on your face color after evening cleansing. You only need a little, so the product will last you for a very long time. The color is natural and long lasting.
