We are celebrating #IAmFantastic with Vita Liberata this month, so we wanted to share with you a guide on which tan to choose based on your needs.

The brand is renowned for their organic and natural-ingredient tanning products, and with an incredible celebrity fan-base (they tanned the Victoria's Secret Angels), we couldn't wait to divulge some of their secrets.

If you have ever struggled to decide on which self tan is right for you, keep reading for all the best tips.

Best for tan-o-phobes

If you're a tan-o-phobe and don't like the idea of traditional self tanners but still want a golden glow, you will love Vita Liberata's Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion.

It has a super lightweight formula which melts into the skin upon application and doesn't leave any sticky or greasy residue behind. Made with Odour Remove™ technology, the lotion doesn't have the traditional tanning smell, and leaves no tell-tale sign that you have applied any tan on your skin. Instead it contains a blend of organic botanicals which nourish and hydrate, helping to keep your skin healthy as it provides a gentle glow.

To use, apply to cleansed and exfoliated skin (not moisturised). Allow at least 4-8 hours for the tan to develop before showering off. You can use 2 days in a row if you want to build up your tan to look a little more intense.

Best for overnight tanners

Sometimes, we want to apply a tan and forget its there, heading straight to bed to get some sleep. This is where Vita Liberata's Invisi Water comes into play.

Tanning waters have gained momentum throughout the year because they don't transfer onto clothing or bedding, don't have the traditional fake tan smell, and instantly absorb into the skin, meaning you can get straight into bed without worrying about orange sheets come morning time.

Vita Liberata's Invisi Water comes in 3 shades: Light to Medium, Medium to Dark and Super Dark. Made with the brand's unique Advoganic™ technology, the tan has incredible hydrating properties, which means it doesn't leave skin scaly or patchy as it fades, leaving an even glow behind.

Best for those in a rush

If you have forgotten to tan, but need a gorgeous golden glow fast, you will love Vita Liberata's Ten Minute Tan.

Delivering a streak-free tan in just 10 minutes, you can quickly apply and wash off for a colour that builds up over 4-8 hours (it will give you a bronze hint to begin with!)

It has innovative Odour Remove technology, which means you won't get the tell-tale fake tan scent, whilst also being enriched with rose and neroli to nourish and keep the skin hydrated to prevent flaking.

We love to apply this with a tanning mitt as it is quite thick and best applied incredibly evenly.

Best for those who need a long tan

Vita Liberata's pHenomenal Tan lasts for up to 2-3 weeks without flaking or peeling for a tan that lasts as long as you need it to.

Formulated with 70% organic extracts, the tan actually works to nourish and keep your skin healthy as it gives a long-lasting golden glow. It relies on the brands unique and exclusive pHenO2 technology, which helps the tan to last 4 times longer than a regular self-tanning product.

It has a lightly whipped mousse texture, which melts into the skin upon application and doesn't leave it feeling sticky or greasy.

Best to fix the tanning error...

If you have an uneven tan or any streaks on your skin, you need to incorporate both the Vita Liberata Body Blur and Trystal Minerals into your tanning routine.

...on your body

Aside from being a brilliant skin finisher, Body Blur is a tinted lotion that evens out the skin tone, and can even be worn without tan to perfect the look of the skin. If you have made any tanning errors, simply apply onto the area you need it and you will have a gorgeously even tan.

...on your face

If you have applied self tan on your face and missed a spot, or forgotten to tan completely, you will love Vita Liberata's Trystal Minerals.

The loose powder contains the brands signature Trystal3™ Technology and micronised crystals, which not only give instant and flawless coverage, but also contain DHA to gently tan the skin over a long period of time.

The powder feels super lightweight and uses a blend of organic ingredients to nourish the skin and keep it healthy and glowing.
