The Best Self-Tanner EVER: Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse. 

The Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse is the best self-tanner I have used, ever. Am I overstating this remark? No. It is that good.

The BEST Self-Tanner: Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse

This self-tanner was created with the brands pHenO2 technology. I don't really know what that is, but whatever it is, it is developed so this self-tanning mouse is completely odorless, light, airy and super long-lasting. It dries within a minute. Literally. I can get dressed immediately after applying. 

When I say Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal is super long-lasting, it really is. The brand claims that it lasts 2-3 weeks, but you have to apply it as they suggest. They suggest three applications, within 3 - 24 hours each. I applied it one night and then again the next morning and had a really dark, but believable self-tan. I noticed some fading around ten days, but still had traces of it on my legs after two weeks. I suppose if I wanted to be really dark and need it to last longer, I would apply the three applications as instructed. Though I didn't, this was more than good enough for me. I previously had a consistent self-tanning routine where I applied twice a week. I never thought I could have a self-tanner last this long and only applying every two weeks is a dream come true.

Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal is super easy to apply with their tanning mitt that I highly recommend you purchase. For only $6.50, this mitt will help you to apply this mouse seamlessly and evenly. I use one pump of mousse for each section of my body, meaning each leg, arm, back, chest and neck. I haven't applied this to my face yet, but for those of you that are daring or want a darker self-tanned face, I would say go for it.

Don't miss this self-tanner. You can choose from Fair, Medium or Dark. I use Medium. It is expensive at $54.00, but it is so worth it. I have used Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal three times since I received it almost two months ago and I still have 3/4 of the bottle left.

Purchase Vita Liberata
 pHenomenal at Sephora.

This sounds like something that is too good to be true but I am a self tanner and get tired of reapplying and drying. I trust you. I would be happy if I would just have to self tan every Sunday night.
I keep reading about this and see it on QVC too. I think I'm going to make this investment!!
I need to try this. I love looking like I have a natural tan, but hate the sun. A self-tanner with no oder and a quick drying time sounds really nice to me right about now. No matter the price!
I tried this at Sephora two days ago, but forgot, because it barely shows up at all?!?! I rubbed it in with the mitt on one hand, TWICE...it didn't smell at all, but it didn't tan at all either:( Since it is crazy expensive, I would suggest testing it out first, an if it works with your body's PH, then go back and get it.
This is awesome! I've been wanting to try self tanner products too! But I'm afraid will this be safe for oily skin? Thanks!
I love this brand--can't believe how natural the color is and it last forever!
Helene - You need to give this a try. Like I said, it is the longest lasting self-tanner I have used.
Sherri - Let me know what you think, though I'm sure you will like it too.
Heather - It delivers on all those counts and is so worth the price.
Michelle - I am surprised to hear that. The bottle needs to be shaken before it is applied or you won't get the right amount of color on your skin. Also, you may need to use a darker shade for your skin. I know many lighter self-tanner shades do not show up on me at all.
Rylee - I believe it is safe for oily skin. It does not clog pores and it is not an oily formula so I am sure it would be fine for you.
Cindy - I try so many self-tanners and this one beats the rest for me. Everything about it is great.
