tarte Maracuja Self-Tanner & Application Mitt
I USED THIS STUFF ALL SUMMER LONG, NOT BEING PREPARED FOR WHAT HAPPENED! I AM BLONDE, LONG HAIR. I PUT THIS ON MY FACE, NECK, ARMS, CHEST as directed, AND IT MELTED OFF WHEN I WOULD SWEAT!!!! It RUINED my blonde locks! Around my neckline, when it MELTED off, it turned my hair ORANGE!!!!!! My hairdresser has tried EVERY way known to the industry to get it out...well guess what, short of BLEACHING my hair which is damaging, I am stuck...this is the WORST tanner ever...it washes off....and it MELTS off....I am furious and will be contacting the company!!!!
Works well.But the smell is not so great. If you can stand the smell which lasts even thru a couple of showers then go for it.
This is easy to apply and doesn't streak if applied correctly. However, if you do have dark spots it does make them darker, contrary to what was said on TV. I use it on my legs and shower everyday. I usually have to reapply after 2 or 3 days.
Easy to apply, tan is beautiful and you have plenty of product. I exfoliated and moisturized from head to toe for a week before using the tanner, this was 3 months ago. I still have splotchy dark spots on the inside of my wrist and the side of my feet that no matter what i use (lemon juice, scrubs, peels, BLEACH etc) will not go away. I was so careful when applying the product so I wouldn't have any issues. My skin looks dirty in those areas and I haven't worn flip flops all summer because I'm so embarrassed. I'm fair skin so this may have something to do with the outcome.
First time buyer and I have used it all summer. It went on easy, even, didn't rub off or shower off. The warm brown color and lasting benefit has won me over.
Next Best Tthing To The Sun
So natural looking, looks like a week at the beach! Last through several showers before I need to reapply! I love it!
So Far, So Good
This is my first experience with a self tanner so I have nothing to compare against. While I was apprehensive at first, the product goes on smooth, dries quickly, and the 'tan' appears even on the skin. I put one coat on my arms and two on my legs as I am very fair. I'm anxious to see how long it will last but all indications are that the product delivers as advertised.
Orange and Uneven!
I followed the directions exactly and this product not only looked orange, uneven, and streaky, it stained my towels and clothes. Based on the results I had, I do not recommend this product and would give it a zero if possible.
My skin is normally so pale it has a bluish hue. I use Tarte and I immediately have a bit of color and then it continues to get darker and darker for several hours. It doesn't rub off on to my clothes or my white sheets even if it's warm outside. I don't ever have weird streaks and it smells so pleasant I actually use it on my face. The smell is very subtle but reminds me of cocoa powder and a little bit of vanilla. If you order a product which smells bad or is orange, it means you purchased a defective product. This product is a lovely dark brown color. It looks scary coming out of the tube but then it turns into a perfect tan color. Because I am so fair, I am a sunless tanner junkie. I've used high end brands and drugstore brands and this is literally the best I've used. A little goes a long way.
THE SEARCH IS OVER!!!
Finally a self tanner that doesn't have a bad odor, doesn't come off on my clothes and looks natural with no streaking. Now I have a good tanner to wear at my wedding and I won't have to look like a lighthouse beacon. Thank you for this product.
Product goes on great and provides a nice tan. The application mitt is also nicer than most. However, after showering the next day, product seems to go down drain. If you don't mind reapplying several times during the week, color is good. For the money, I will stick to St. Tropez.
This goes on really well with the mitt. I've not tried any other self-tanners but I've got to believe this has to be one of the best. The look is totally natural and I am very fair. Makes me feel I look healthier!
