Though I’m a beauty blogger with access to many, many brands, when I find a brand that really works and upholds its promises, I stick with it. Such is the case with Vita Liberata. I discovered the line last summer and every product I’ve tried (and they have a wide selection) has passed my strict checklist of what I want in a tanning product.

Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Self Tan has new packaging but it’s still their best seller with good reason.

This is what sold me:

  • Odour Remove™ Technology for zero self-tan smell – I HATE smelly self tanners! I have no idea how they erase the scent, but I’m glad they do!
  • Moisture LockingSystem for 72 hour skin hydration using Certified organic botanicals–will not dry out your skin.
  • Fast drying, streak-free application using the mitt.
  • Long lasting! You get instant color that lasts up to two weeks. When it does fade, it doesn’t look patchy.
  • Natural looking color–no orange oompa loompa look! Available in Fair, Medium and Dark.

You all know what a klutz I am but with the mitt that comes with Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Self Tanit makes application easy-peasy. I spray a dollop on each arm and using the mitt, rub in a circular motion, then move on to my chest and legs. I will say that I prefer Vita Liberata Instant Body Blur HD Skin Finish (reviewed here) for my legs only because I have so many freckles, sun damage and scars, I feel body blur camouflages them better. If you don’t have that problem, pHenomental works just fine. Oh and, I almost forgot–do NOT moisturize before applying! I apply a few hours before bed and wake up with a rich, natural tan without all the damage from the sun!


I use Medium for a bronzey glow, I could also use Fair if I wanted something more subtle. The directions say to apply two coats for the longest lasting tan, but with my fair skin (especially my fish belly white legs) I felt the color of two coats was getting dangerously close to fake looking so I stick with one coat that lasts a little over a week which is fine for me.

Not only do I like the moisturizing ingredients in this formula, but I also like all the nasty stuff left OUT: NO Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates,

Research results:
After just 2 applications:
– 80% agree pHenomenal tan lasts 15 days or longer
– 100% agree that skin was silky soft after using pHenomenal
– 100% agree that they were comfortable enough to go straight out after applying pHenomenal
– 100% agree pHenomenal tan is quick and easy to apply
– 90% agree pHenomenal tan faded like a natural tan

I love Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Self Tan so much that I want YOU to try it too, and I just happen to have an extra bottle so….. I’m giving it away!

From our partners


  1. I’ve been using Jergens Natural Glow and L’oreal Sublime Bronze but I always look streaky 🙁

  2. I like self tanners, but they usually give me mixed results. I really only use Jergens because that one is the best I’ve found!

  3. mary kay baynard says

    I have been dying to try this but have not wanted to spend the money

  4. I tried a self tanner a couple of years ago I can’t remember the name, but I like that this one seems to have more natural ingredients and doesn’t have as much of a smell.

  5. I have never used a self tanner before. This sounds like a good one.

  6. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    I’ve heard good things about this brand

  7. I haven’t found one I like yet because I can’t stand the scent. ThIs sounds amazing!

  8. Karla Ramos says

    That would really work for my skin lately which has endured some warm weather from the places I’ve visited. The details you’ve listed here sounds very astounding for a product, looks like my faith just got switched over!

  9. Haven’t yet, but I want to!

  10. This is something I could use. I can’t tan at all. I have very fair skin.

  11. I have never tried using a tanning product ever. But if I were going to use one, I’d probably stick with something like this, I don’t want a lot of chemicals on my skin and this sounds perfect!

  12. I love Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs and St Tropez, though I haven’t tried Vita Liberata.

  13. Amanda Love says

    I’ve never tried fake tan before, but I understand why a lot of women use it. I think it’s great that you found a product that works for you!

  14. When I gave this to Lisa to review she was thrilled since she knows how great a brand it is.

  15. i tried a couple but either end up streaky or orange 🙁

  16. Annemarie LeBlanc says

    I have never used tanning products before. Honestly, I am scared it would not look natural. I am sure this is a good product for women who have tried tanning products before. Thanks for the review.

  17. FabZilla_Kath says

    This is one of my favorite self Tanners

  18. rika agustini says

    Jennifer Rote

  23. I absolutely love this stuff!

  24. Jessica Miller says

    I havent used a self tanner in a long time. I would love to try this though, i dont like to go tanning.

  25. Self tanner isn’t my thing but glad you like it!

  26. I live in SoFL so I like a little color with no sun. Right now I’m using Tan Towels. Like the ease but the color is just ok


    I’ve tried a self tanner but haven’t used one in a while. I have tried one by Loreal.

  28. I’ve not yet found a self-tanner that I like, so I usually use Sally Hansen’s leg makeup.

  29. Jennifer Ryder says

    After too many summers of pale, white legs I finally decided to start using self tanners. Why did I wait so long??? I’ve tried the Vita Liberata and I like it. I only do 1 application at a time and I was happy with the results. I’ve also used Clarins Self Tanning Cream and that worked well, also.

  30. Honestly, Vita Liberata sounds like a pretty new brand for me, but the product sounds amazing which could be an easy instant tan. I have never used tanning products before, would love to check it out!

  31. pinksuzanne says

    I have not tried any self tanners as I was always concerned it would look unnatural. Vita Liberte I have heard of and it sounds like one that would great for me to try out.

  32. I have used self tanners a long time ago, but did not find one that looked natural. Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2-3 week tan sounds amazing! I also like that it has odor remove technology for no smell, which is key, not only for the environment and allergens that some people have, but this product sounds phenomenal to me – hence why it has the name! I would love to try it!

  33. Mary Murphy says

    I like to use self-tanners on my legs in particular. I have ghostly white legs and, even in the sunshine, it’s hard to get an even tan.

  34. I’m loving that color! I’m “naturally” tan but after giving birth I lost my glow and could use a little help in a bottle!

  35. I love Vita Liberata products, especially the latest oil!

  36. Saving Common Cents says

    I’ve used a self-tanner before, but never this brand! I love that it has no awful smell. That’s a nice bonus!

  37. I got Vita Liberata “Fabulous” gradual tanning lotion in a Birchbox this summer and I love it. I’m about a MAC NW10 and it looks natural on my face. No smell, nice ingredients.

  38. I have only tried the Jergens gradual tanning lotion. I’ve been afraid of ending up with an Oompa Loompa orange tan.

  39. Colleen Boudreau says

    I do sometimes. I really like St. Tropez.

  40. LilyBiscuit says

    I don’t use them, but, would love to try. This one looks really nice.

  41. The brand I have tried & like is St. Tropez – only with a tanning mitt though!

  42. Austin Baroudi says

    This would be for my girlfriend and this would be her first self tanner. Thanks so much for the chance!

  43. Samantha Schreiner says

    I have never tried self tanner!

  44. Shannon ONeill says

    I haven’t tried a self tanner yet. I really want to.

  45. I have used Jergens Natural Glow before and that was pretty dandy, but I’ve never tried any mousse self tanners and I’d love to give one a go!

  46. I’ve tried several, but it seems that the more I apply, the more orange I become. I would like to keep trying to find something that works, I hate being so pale.

  47. Christy Peeples DuBois says

    I do use self tanners but actually haven’t tried that many. I have Tartes self tanner and I have two others that aren’t big names but they all work well. I have read reviews that this one that you are giving away lasts a longer time than most do.

  48. Rachel Beltz says

    I’ve never had the extra money to spend on a self tanner!

  49. Andrea Darst says

    I haven’t used them much lately, but I do love Lancome’s Leg Gel!

  50. Kelley Roach says

    have not tried any self tanners as I was always concerned it would look unnatural.
