Birchbox Breakdown

Forget everything you know about sunless tanner. This celeb-favorite formula, made with organic botanicals, gives you an effortless, head-to-toe glow—without the drawbacks of most drugstore varieties. Your tan will last up to four times as long as with other formulas (two to three weeks is the norm), and thanks to an infusion of moisturizers and antioxidants, your color will be free of streaks or splotches. When it does eventually fade, your tan will fade evenly (no awkward pale spots). And applying it is a total breeze: The non-toxic formula dries in mere minutes, so you can get dressed right away, and it’s totally odorless too. Meanwhile, the mini mitt ensures a smooth, mess-free application—and results that will have you glowing, inside and out.

How to Use

Start by exfoliating skin in the shower and following with a moisturizer. Dispense 2–3 pumps of mousse onto the white side of the mitt. Squeeze the product in your hand to distribute evenly over the mitt’s surface. Using the mitt, massage your legs in circular motions, working from the thighs downward. Squeeze the mitt again to release the last of the product, and sweep over the tops of your feet (imagine the tan lines that you’d get from walking barefoot on the sand—that’s what you’re going for). Next, sweep the mitt over the backs of your ankles in a horizontal motion. Dispense 2–3 more pumps of mousse before doing your arms, hands, stomach, and chest, squeezing the mitt to get every last drop of formula. Finish by applying 1–2 more pumps to your face and neck, massaging in gentle motions as you would a moisturizer. For a perfectly blended tan, complete this last step: Take a damp cotton round or cloth and press it into the creases of your nose, across your top lip, and across your eyebrows. Do the same for your elbows, knees, and the backs of your ankles, as well as your knuckles, palms, and between your fingers. Then, take a dry cloth and blend the edges of your hands and feet. All done!

I've tried so many self tanners and this is by far my favorite! Exfoliate prior but don't put on lotion or anything. It goes on as a mousse and you just rub it on then buff it in with the mitt. The color shows instantly so you can see exactly where its going and even out any streaks. I love that it dries pretty quickly and hasn't gotten on my white sheets once. It works best if you do it about 3 times and wait 2 days between each application. It gives you a great dark glow for around 3 weeks and doesn't look fake or muddy at all!!!

Amazing! No stinky smell!

LOVE this product! I've used almost every self-tanner out there and this is absolutely, hands down, THE BEST one out there! Great, natural looking color and NO smell!

Save yourself time and money, this product is the absolute worst self tanner I ever used! Smells terrible and even though I carefully exfoliated my skin; It left my skin with orange streaks.

Great tan, still stinky

Vita Liberata provides the best looking self tan I've ever had. It goes on so easily, the guide color helps with a perfect application. I highly recommend using the mitt. It makes all the difference. Here's the only downside: when I first applied, there was no odor, and I rejoiced! But within a couple of hours, I still had that telltale tanner smell. After a shower the next morning though, the smell was barely noticeable. I will buy again.
