What is it: tarte's Little Mist Sunshine Self-Tanner is a clear, gradual self-tanning spray that's accompanied by a custom application mitt to help to give you a deep-toned bronze look.

Who is it for: Anyone looking for a mess-free, goof-proof glow on the go.

Why is it different: Discover a crystal-clear bottle of sunshine in this continuous clear self-tanning mist. The goof-proof spray is skin-activated to gradually deliver your perfect level of natural-looking bronze that looks like you've spent days in the sunshine.

The non-aerosol bottle dispenses the ideal amount of the mess-free mist directly onto your skin; it feels like a hydrating drink of water. Infused with skin-soothers, moisturizers, and gentle exfoliators, it preps skin for flawless application, and the included mitt delivers a uniform tan that fades evenly over time. With PUREshield scent control technology, you'll discover a gorgeous-looking glow with no self-tanner scent, and everyone else will think you spent days in the sunshine.

How do I use it: Hold the bottle 6" away from skin and spray carefully in straight lines onto one body part at a time. The 360-degree applicator works at any angle to spray seamlessly in hard-to-reach places. Before the product dries, use the mitt to blend using long, even strokes. Allow product to absorb completely before dressing, and wait at least eight hours before showering or shaving to allow a seamless tan to fully develop. Avoid spraying into nails, lips, and eyes. Wash hands after each application.

tarte Rainforest of the Sea Sunshine Self Tanner w/ Mitt is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING-THIS IS A WINNER Am very fair skinned and have age spots - all the other brands I tried on QVC highlighted those spots so was too embarassed to keep using the product. This one doesn't highlight them and looks very natural. Cautionary note-host indicated first time would be merely a glow - was surprised the next day at how tanned I was but not disappointed-so a learning process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not For Me I'd been using another Tarte tanner, which works well for me, but tried the Rainforest of the Sea Sunshine on a whim. Because it goes on clear, I found it difficult to apply because you can't see where you've been or whether too much or little is going in one spot. Anyway, the results are not supposed to be "instant", but by the next morning, my skin was still pale as could be but my sheets and pajamas had streaks of tan. My skin was dry before I dressed and went to bed, and fortunately, the discoloration came out in the wash, but it was pretty disappointing. The best thing I can say is that the product odor wasn't bad. As for me, it's back to the other product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me This product turned only my age spots dark. The color lasted a long time. Very disappointing. I had surgery an went way past the return date. Perhaps this is for young people with no freckles or sun spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Just what I have been looking for. It's not your usual Fake Bake self tanner that looks dark for 4-5 days then flakes off like alligator skin. It is a soft natural glow that makes you look tan and fades beautifully. I am blonde and tan easily. I apply this product 2-3 days per week and have a nice tan. Oh and did I mention the Best Part? It has little to no smell than any other self tanner and I have tried many! And no transfer on white clothes or my light colored sheets! It is by far the best tanner I have ever used. Please don't ever stop making this product. Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disapponted Product is very disappointing. I've been using daily for a week and barely any color. Demo on QVC vey misleading. No color at all after 3 applications. Barely color after 7. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice glow! Im not a big fan of self-tanners but was so pale that I needed something for summer. I tried this and was pleasantly surprised! It gives you a very nice glow, just has a little bit of the self-tanner odor and didnt rub off on my clothes, sheets or shoes! It doesnt take very much either, so it should last a long time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite self tanner This is the best self tanner that I have ever used. It goes on evenly using the included mitt, and dries in a couple of minutes. Very, very light scent and no staining of clothes or bedding. For my very fair skin, I have found that applying two light coats spaced a couple of hours apart produces a more even tan than one heavy coat.
