After the faff of carefully applying
fake tan all over your entire body, ensuring it’s rubbed in within an inch of its life and guarding yourself against any kind of water situation, wouldn’t it be a treat if it actually lasted more than a week before fading?
Well, maybe the bronzed gods were listening because there’s a fake tan that apparently lasts a whole three weeks before disappearing – and its fans can’t stop raving about it.
It’s Vita Liberata’s pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse, which usually costs £37.50 but it’s now on
Amazon for a pretty decent £25.
The fake tan mousse is streak-free, fast-drying, natural and odourless and the bottle says its special formula makes it “last longer than any other in the world” and even leaves you with “a perfect fade, every time.”
No wonder it has a loyal celeb following –
Rita Ora, Jourdan Dunn and Nicole Scherzinger are apparently hooked.
It’s not just the rich and famous who love it, reviews on Amazon are massively positive.
“Best self tanner ever! Lasts as it says.”
“Best Tan I’ve ever used. Easy to apply and everyone thinks its a holiday tan rather than a bottle tan. Fab.”
“Its a gorgeous, natural, even colour!…No orange whatsoever, not one single patch and so believeable.”
“Love this….I’m absolutely rubbish at putting fake tan on….but this the best I’ve ever tried. …very natural. …blends well ….I think I’m addicted to it now ☺
Although, not all reviewers felt it lived up to the hype.
“This is a really nice looking tan and fades better than other tans I have used. I don’t understand why it says lasts 2-3 weeks it doesn’t, lasts around 5 days.”
“Easy to apply product just don’t think it lasts 2-3 weeks – maybe if you don’t shower frequently it would.”
Since it’s on sale with Amazon, we reckon it’s worth trying for yourself.
