tarte Maracuja Self-Tanner & Application Mitt
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!
Beauty of a Product!!!
I bought this last summer and did not use it until this summer. Why did I wait so long!!
It is a fabulous product. I am fair/medium skinned. Not a bit of it comes off on clothing
or bedding. The color is totally natural and lovely. For those who are complaining
about the "smell," I say WHAT? It is a very nice fragrance--not a smell! Do not
hesitate to order this instead of any other self-tanner. The price is great. I am a
very satisfied customer.
I really really wanted this to work. I use the oil of olay and Jergens self tanners which are decent. Wanted something a little darker and have always worried about the orangy look. yes read all the reviews.. I applied this on a Monday was happy with the look the next day. applied it again on Friday night after showering went to Vegas the next day. Went out by the pool at about 4pm applied regular sunscreen and within 10 mins this stuff was all over the hotel white towels . Orange all over the place. Very embarrassing needless to say. at this price, I will stick with the drug store brands
Tarte Maracuja Self Tanner is Simply the BEST!
Over the years, I've tried and tried to find a self tanner that gave a nice tan color and more importantly didn't make me stink! You can be tan, but if you smell funky, well, you know. This is fabulous - I can put it on in the morning and give it a few minutes to dry, and you have a glow that is just beautiful! Makes you feel wonderful and guess what - NO funky smell! Actually it smells good. Maureen this is amazing! It's awesome! Highly recommend! Love it!
