NKD SKN by Vita Liberata Tan Review

For the past few weeks I have been using NKD SKN tan from Vita Liberata.


For quite some time I have been a huge fan of the Vita Liberata brand – ever since they launched the world’s first odourless tan in 2007. Now, their unique odour remove technology is present in their entire tanning range including the newly launched NKD SKN. Not to mention the fact that in 2011, Vita Liberata became the first completely non-toxic tanning brand.

S_PHENOMENAL_DARK_2-3_WEEK_SELF TAN MOUSSEI had previously reviewed the pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan in an article I wrote for Beaut.ie which you can check out here but today, I will be discussing their latest innovation which is NKD SKN. This brand new, super-luxe range was created to still give you that celebrity tan, without the celebrity price tag.

A bottle of pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse will set you back €46 online, which to me is worth every penny but lets be honest, €46 just isn’t everyones budget.

A bottle of NKD SKN Tan Mousse however, will only set you back €15 and the results are arguably just as good.

Similarly to the pHenomenal, NKD SKN contains Vita Liberata’s unique odour remove technology and is completely odourless.

I’ve been using the Superfast Tan Mousse which develops in just 1 hour!! And to prove it, heres a picture of me before I applied.


And then 1 hour later!


How amazing is the colour and this is just the medium??

It’s an easy-to-use, instant colour mousse that glides on easily and evenly. As I mentioned, this is a super-fast acting tan and can be washed off after 1 hour to reveal a natural looking tan which will keep developing over an 8 hour period.

For this reason, I chose to apply the tan in the morning time, monitor how dark it was developing and then make a call on when to wash it.

I was afraid that if I applied it at night time and then slept for 8 hours I would mahogany come morning.

This tan isn’t as long-lasting as the pHenomenal, however, I did get at least week out of it and the fade was unbelievable with absolutely no patchiness.


There is also an amazing instant matte tan in the NKD SKN range pictured here which is priced at just €9.50.

 What I love about this is it contains natural extracts which leave your skin super-soft. It’s moisturising, odourless and weightless on the skin and definitely gives Sally Hanson a run for her money.

The lovely girls over at Vita Liberata have also given me a huge NKD SKN hamper to give away to one lucky follower as well which will include the following:
