I use the maracuja bronzing serum on my face and I love it, but I wanted a deeper color on my arms and legs so I ordered this. This might help you make up your mind and clarify some things about the tanner lasting power. It has a color in it that goes on brown and makes you look immediately bronzed. So you can put it on and go right out with your new tan. When you shower later that color runs off and your left with a beautiful deep tan. On me that lasts about four days so I'm tanning twice a week. I use philosophy olive oil scrub all over when I shower so the tan comes out very even on my body. I have tried it on my face and found that even though it's probably not made exactly for the face, it gives me a very nice glow there too. I just wash my face in four hours before I put on makeup
Rated 4 out of 5 by kayakgirl70 Great product, remember however
Let me begin by saying that, in the past, I have applied self tanning in a Spa setting. I have tried several products personally as well. There are mixed reviews with this product, simply because everyone's body chemistry is different. The nice thing is, you have a 30 day return option here.
I really like this product for personal use for a few reasons:
1- the smell is Very Slight and dissipates more quickly after the first shower than others
2- it's a fairly long lasting tan with daily moisturizing
3- this product does not have the "flaking" appearance as it ages and is
naturally sloughed off by the skin in several days
4- it is very easy to apply with a few tips:
a) exfoliate well a few hours before application with no oil based products
b) do not apply moisturizer or oil based products to skin at least 8 hrs prior to
application ** (except to dry areas like ankles, etc; as explained on the
directions of the product)
c) use the provided mitt.
d) After application of tanning product, use a lightly damp tissue to gently dab
dab dry skin areas like sides of ankles, toes, elbow tip, and inside of wrist
** For DARK SPOTS: 10 min before tan application, I use a Q- tip to gently and carefully dab a bit of moisturizer onto the area of the dark spots only. Allow to dry thoroughly, then apply tan. ( perhaps this may work for older scars as well)
Absolutely wait the recommended dry time before showering, sweating, or playing in the rain...lol.
*After showering, I find that Moisturising daily extends the life of the tan. My tan usually lasts about 6-7 days. I've personally found that any of Josie Maran's Whipped Argan Oil work well with my chemistry and self tanning. Hope this helps.

St. Tropez self tanner is 100 percent better. This looks good until you shower. So if you want to like this , don't shower.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Michelle Mc Not happy
I love mostly all tarte products. But not this one! The first time I used it I saw absolutely no difference. I assumed maybe it was my fault somehow bc I used the wrong side of the mitt. But the second time was the same. No difference in color... And I am very pale. Time to find another self tanner. :(

gives you a realistic tan but must be very careful when applying. Also does have a smell to it like most tanners
Rated 2 out of 5 by not aging gracefully NOt what I anticipated
First off let me say, I like the Tarte brand in general . I use many of their products. So when I saw the good reviews on this self tanner, I ordered it. I had my daughters graduation to go to. I bought a new dress and new undergarments. I applied the self tanner the night before and the presentation says it does not stain clothes..well my new ( very expensive) bra and (some) of my dress did get stained.....not happy!!!
As far as the color...on some parts of my body it took pretty well and looked natural..but the it did not take on some parts and looked unnatural on others...so not consistent. I only applied it to my arms,hands, neck and chest, legs and feet.
I will definitely not order again ...and am deciding whether or not to return....
