If you have seen any picture of me on my blog you will know I am quite fair in skin tone. This is
not because my skin doesn't tan easily. On my father's side I'm a 1/4 Salvadorian and 1/4 Spanish, (If you're wondering, I'm English and Welsh on my mother's side.) so tanning is usually just an act of walking outside. Honestly one good day in the sun with sunblock and I'm looking at a new foundation shade. However, I try to stay out of the desert sun here in Southern Nevada, thus the need for a little help from the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner.
Mostly I am just trying to get my legs to be the same color as my face, arms, and chest. Just the sun I get while shopping or taking my dogs for a quick stroll will have me a few shades off from my legs, which have not seen the light of day for months.
I am not a big fan of sunless tanners typically. I find they streak and smell in a way I don't enjoy. It also kind of weirds me out when you have this color on your skin for weeks at a time. This is why this one from Tarte got me interested. A while ago I got a deluxe sample size from Sephora online. Then a couple of weeks ago I got a pair of shorts and needed some color. I tried the sample and was very impressed, so impressed I bought the full size. It wasn't streaky, it smelled like a cinnamon roll (win), and looked perfectly natural. Not too orange in tone, not to green in tone. It looked good right away and by morning my skin was glowing.
This formula is not super long lasting, which I like. You just have to do it about two times a week to maintain that glow. You only have to wait about 10 minutes before putting on clothes and you smell great. Along with all that good stuff it also hydrates the skin with Tarte's favorite ingredient: Maracuja Oil. This product is Vegan friendly and cruelty free.
This is hands down the best sunless tanner I have ever tried. The package comes with a mit for smooth application and no brown palms, a sample of the face wipe formula, which I have also tried, and holy Brazilian vacation in a towelette!!
Here's to safe tanning and protecting your skin from aging this summer!! Have you tried this
formula? What do you think? I hope this review helps you find your perfect glow this summer!
