Review: Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum

I love Tarte products!  All of their products are beautifully pigmented and have never broken me out or given my skin a reaction.  When I found out this was coming in the January Boxycharm I was ecstatic and a little nervous.  I am not into bronzing/tanning my skin, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.


I am happy to say….this product is another Tarte success!  Tarte’s website says this product contains maracuja and plant extracts to hydrate, brighten and even skin tone.  The self-tanning complex delivers instant radiance as it imparts a gradual, natural-looking bronze for a healthy, glowing complexion over time.

Seeing the phrase “gradual, natural-looking bronze” eased my mind.  That is exactly what it did.  I felt it gave my skin a healthy glow rather than a tan.  My skin looked hydrated and healthy.  I didn’t notice any streaking, but I was careful while applying.  I look my time and make sure to apply the product evenly.  And the best part?  It didn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts!!  I have combination skin and was worried that using a serum/oil would make me an oily mess.  This absorbed really well and did not make me greasy.

The packaging is beautiful and I love the dropper applicator.


Will I be purchasing this once I run out?  Absolutely!!  I love how it makes my skin look and it’s great for hydration.  This product retails for $47 which is a little pricy.  But you need such a small amount of product that it will definitely last you.
