This is what it says on the Vita Liberata website:

I haven’t really been much of a selftanner before this year, so I’ve been trying out a few different ones and once I read about this I just had to try it.
I mean, the claims on this sounded so amazing to me and since my other selftanner only lasts on my skin for 4-7 days I was so excited for this!
In preperation while I was waiting for this to arrive I scrubbed my skin regularly, moisturiezed and did all the things I had to do so that I could apply this the second I got it, and than I tried it only to be dissappointed.
Now the first thing, and this is kind of my own fault since I didn’t read the directions of use before I got the product, they say on both the box and the website (which I clearly didn’t read) that you should apply it 3 times to get the longest lasting tan. And on the box it also says that you should let it develoup for 6-24 hours, which is longer than it says on the website.
So that is something to keep in mind if you have a busy lifestyle.
Anyway, I did follow the directions on the box and applied it 3 times (I left each application on for 10-18hours), and unfortunatly I do think you have to do that, not only to get the longest lasting tan but also to actually get the colorpayment out of it. It may be better with the darkest shade, but with medium (and I would think the light one too) I didn’t see that much color before my third application.
With this said, this does give a very beatiful, golden bronze color to the skin once you got it on, and it does dry on contact just as it claims, so that’s good, but sadly that’s the only claim I think it holds up to.
Because no matter how I’ve tried this, it doesn’t last for more than 4 days tops, and this sure as h*ll don’t fade perfectly, at least not on me.
And even though it didn’t last as long as it says, I at least thought it would fade better than it did, so I am over all quite dissappointed with this.
And I also find this to smell quite a lot, so.
Lastly I just want to mention that this may work perfectly for you, and if it does that’s great, but I just can’t recommend this at all.
I got mine from Kicks for 489nok.
