How We Got the World’s Best Tan, Mid-Winter (Win a $160 Vita Liberata Prize Pack!)

January 4, 2018

From Gilded Gifts in December to the Golden Globes this Sunday night, we’re extending our 24-karat obsession to our skin this season thanks to Vita Liberata—a lustrous range of gorgeously organic, totally odourless, tech-savvy skin-care and self-tanning products that, no joke, work to create the world’s best tan and, indeed, are coveted by some of Hollywood’s biggest, brightest and, well, best-bronzed stars (just ask celeb makeup artist to Rose-Mary Holosko, who answered our burning questions about the brand here). Among its best-sellers (and our must-try faves):

vita liberata

Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish: A gorgeous, silky wash-off body makeup that uses a natural-looking tint and light-reflecting properties to give our skin a flawless, photo-ready finish (it even softens the appearance of veins and small scars—a definite bonus in our books!). $50 at Sephora

pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse: A fast-absorbing, super-quick-drying mousse that develops over four to eight hours into a deep, natural-looking tan. The secret here: pHenO2 technology, developed to encourage a tan that lasts up to four times longer than regular tans, with a patch-free perfect fade and 72-hour hydration to boot! Choose Fair for a subtle glow, Medium for a golden bronze and Dark for a deep, delicious tan. $65 at Sephora

Trystal Pressed Self Tanning Bronzer: A world-first, this self-tanning star delivers an instant pure mineral bronze colour and a subtle lasting tan. It comes, compact-style, in a handy pressed-powder form that’s perfect for travel and on-the-go bronzing—plus, it’s cleverly infused with oil-free micronized crystals for sheer, lightweight bronzing coverage and added DHA for a subtle glow. $45 at Sephora

The first completely non-toxic tanning brand free from parabens, perfume, alcohol and all chemicals of concern, Vita Liberata uses Advoganic Technology, which combines cutting-edge skin chemistry with potent organic botanicals to offer healthy, glowing skin in addition to a red-carpet-worthy tan, no matter the time of year.
