tarte Maracuja Self-Tanner & Application Mitt
Best self-tanner - LOVE
The smell alone sold me! Smells like vanilla with a hint of cinnamon. The color looks so real, not from a bottle. Easy to apply with the mitt. I suggest like any other self-tanner exfoliating and applying a water-based lotion to your face, elbows, knees, hands and tops of feet. Start from your legs and work up in circles. The way your skin feels is like butter soft! I've used many other tanners, I feel this one is by far the best.
I am so white...but no more!!
I am really white. I mean, embarrassingly white. I need self tanner to get my summer glow started. I've tried everything in the past only to be stuck with an unnatural color and caked up product around my knees, heels and elbows. I used this tonight and am so pleased with the color. I put two coats on my legs - the first coat looked like a nice glow but now the second is coming out and it looks like a nice tan! I'm so happy! The mitt makes it VERY easy, and foolproof to apply. There are no demarcation lines to announce that I'm using a self tanner. Now that I know this product promises to do what it says it's going to do I will certainly buy another once this is gone. I have a feeling this is one product I wont want to be without! It's also filled with great things for your skin. Right after I applied it my skin felt wonderfully silky. After the second coat, I applied some cocoa butter lotion to smooth everything out and give my skin a nice sheen. Tomorrow I will apply it all over my body and my face - thank you Tarte for making a product that will produce these results!
The only "con" that I can say anything about is the fragrance. Dont get me wrong...it's a really pretty fragrance! It doesnt smell like your typical self tanner. Some call it a floral but I honestly thing it smells a bit "nutty". The thing is it's STRONG. I can still smell it HOURS after I applied it. After you shower I'm told you can't smell it, but if you take a shower, apply and then sleep all night you're going to smell the fragrance. I have fragrance allergies and am hoping I dont get a headache from it. Maybe Tarte can come out with a fragrance free product alongside this one?
I have tried a lot of these self tanners an would b orange or streak!! Finally something that works for me!!! In fact I am going to now order for my niece! Thanks!!
I just received this today and could not wait to use it! I thought for a min that it was going to be like all the rest that do nothing,but to my surprise, I had a dark tan in a few hours. I noticed a color change within a couple of minutes and then after a few hours I had a great tan. The smell is wonderful and even if it did not make me tan ,I would you it just because its filled with great things for your skin and because of the smell. I wont do without it anymore. I will definitely buy again.
Effective and pleasant to use.
I've tried many bad smelling self tanners but this one is delightful. Needed tanned legs for a winter wedding in a warm climate (I live in New England), and two applications of this product did the trick. I agree with other reviewers that the smell is very nice and it moisturized my skin. Do not hesitate to try it! You do need to apply carefully but the mitt helps. I may become addicted! But it's safer than the sun and looks authentic.
best self tanner
Doesn't look fake and smells good I order before vacation and also use during the summer love it, if you try one you will want two
Best self tanner ever!
I am a very fair skinned person and I was hesitant to try yet another self tanning product. I am so glad I tried this one! It looks so natural and so easy to use! Love the mitt for application ease. I get so many compliments from people when I wear it and they can't believe it when I say it's out of a tube. They think I have been some place tropical. Thank u so much Tarte u will have a customer for life!
Very natural looking
I have fair (but not porcelain) skin and I found this tanner to be very natural looking. The scent is faint and after application, you don't smell it anymore - I think it smells faintly of a cinnamon roll! you are probably laughing at that, but if you buy it you will see what I mean! I have had NO problems at all with it streaking. I think it is the type of tanner where, you need to apply it a few days in a row to attain a level of color that I'm going for, but then you take a break for a few days, etc. The deepening of the color is almost immediate. It is not sticky or stinky. OH AND THE BEST part!! I think my skin actually looked more moisturized and luminous after using it which was an expected side benefit!
Best Self Tanner Ever
This is seriously the best self tanner ever and believe me I've tried them all!! I tan in the tanning bed all summer but like to give my skin a break in the fall/winter. I have a more olive skin tone and alot of self tanner make me look orange. But this one gives me a natural looking brown tan and I love it!! I put it on before bed and it doesn't stink and doesn't get on my clothes or sheets. Then I wash off in the morning and have a beautiful tan!! I never want to be without this product!!
I LOVE this product! The mitt makes the application so easy and mess-free! It also helps to apply it evenly. Any other self-tanner I've ever used has streaked and turned orange on me but this leaves a beautiful tan glow behind! I use this all year round!
I have a very fair complexion, and it is difficult for me to find tanning products that do not make me look orange. This product looked as good as an airbrush tan, but you don't feel sticky, and it's much more affordable. I had no issues with streaking,except on my feet from sandals,which is hard to avoid with any product. The scent could be improved, but doesn't turn me off enough not to use. I will be buying the Tarte self tanner forever!
Great color until you shower. I have used this two nights in row and I see no difference in my skin color what so ever. You would need to use this every day to maintain a tan. I'm not new to self tanners. And I'm not talking about the garbage you can purchase over the counter. This Summer I have purchased 3 different products online, searching for the one that truly delivers as promised on TV. More than half of the bottle is gone with just two applications. I reapplied twice last night to see if I my eyes were deceiving me. They weren't. I'm very disappointed. Very, very expensive to wash down the drain. I had been interested in trying out other Tarte products until this purchase. They will never get my business again. RETURNING. I would give this NO stars if I could. I feel cheated and deceived.
