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.
