Tarte - Brazilliance - Self Tan for Face and Body

Tarte is a wonderful beauty line that offers healthy, cruelty -free cosmetic and skincare products. Tarte infuses their products with plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally derived ingrediants (source). 

We are all aware of the harmful effects the sun can have on our bodies, from skin cancer, dark sun spots to pre-mature aging. Although I still long for the tanned look, I vow to apply the sunscreen and achieve the color from a bottle from now on.

I am a big fan of tarte products, so I was really intrigued when I stumbled upon the Brazilliance skin rejuvenating maracuja face and body self tanner.

The product is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalated, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulate and synthetic fragrances. It contains maracuja oil, vitamin c and essential fatty acids that drench the skin in moisture.  

It really is a lovely product. It comes with a special mitt for easy application and it dries within five minutes, and it smells good too. The smell reminds me of the sweet-tarts candy we used to eat as kids (or maybe still do, wink wink). Tarte claims that this product will give you a natural, sun kissed warmth. If you can see the before and after picture below you will see that it is very natural looking.  Not at all an over the top tan if you now what I mean.  

The mitt that comes with it really helps deliver a streak free even tan. My only recommendation is that you need to work quickly with this product, always exfoliate beforehand and keep the mitt in the open air after using it. Don't stuff it back in the box, it will get moldy. (the price you pay for natural I guess).  

I also apply this to my face with a small makeup sponge rather then the mitt, it works great. I totally recommend  this product for anyone looking for a healthy natural looking tan. 
I purchased this from Sephora
