Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

I use this product come May when I want to wear summery clothing but do not have the tan for it. Works amazing. Never blotchy, and gives the same results as a tanning salon. Never orange, always a bronze color. It is a bit pricey, but I get multiple uses out of it. Does not make my skin breakout either. Best self-tanner product out there. P.S.- use the mit when applying for a streak free finish.

    Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

    I am so happy with this product. I have tried so many self tanners and I believe this is my favorite one! The smell is so amazing. (Smells like cinnamon). The color spreads so evenly on the skin. I put this product on after I showered, shaved, and exfoliated. And woke up with a great even tan. And my skin feels so soft. The only con I can think of is I would like the color to just be a little darker. But I do understand that my skin tone is really pale. Overall amazing product and I will buy again and again. Thanks Tarte!

        This was my first self tanner and I loved it! The application was easier than expected and barely any streaks, even though I didn't know what I was doing, lol. I felt like it was pretty long lasting and I didn't have to use that much. Most importantly its a nice natural looking color!

          I wanted to love this but just don't. It originally smells nice but after a couple of hours smells like any other self tanner. Only lasted on me for one day until I showered then I watched it go down the drain. Recommend TanTowels.

              Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

              I was super skeptical about buying this product due to such mixed reviews, and was even set I was going to return the product because of them. I love those rich deep brown, dark tans. If you've ever been to a tanning salon and had sunless tanner done, the color of this tanner most closely resembles a medium color, but if you apply it consecutively (2 days in a row) you'll achieve a dark tan. For those who say this tanner just washes off, from my experience that is not the case. Keep in mind this is a super hydrating lotion, so the dryer your skin is the more the product with seep into your skin & you'll get the best longevity and color payoff. Although you're supposed to apply lotions to dryer areas such as the elbows and knees when self tanning, I don't with this product and I never have any streakiness or issues with the color. And also a little plus, this self tanner has literally no "self tanner smell" - yes it has a smell but not that *particular* smell. If you're looking for a new self tanner, give this one a shot because it may become your new go to, as it did for me.

              Not Very Dark But Also NOT STINKY

              By JY

              from North Little Rock, AR

              Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

              I've tried many different self-tanners & found some i like, but they ALWAYS have that smell that makes me feel gross. This Tarte actually has a pleasant "cinnamony" smell, but not like it's trying to drown out a chemical smell. I'm fairly light and was disappointed that it wasn't very dark. i really didn't feel like my skin looked darker at all, so it would take at least 3 applications to look "tan" & that gets expensive.

                  Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

                  This is the best self-tanner I have ever tried in over 15 years of self-tanning, including the newer version of this that is sold at another store. I have never written a review on this item despite using it for the last four years, but feel compelled to do out of fear this exact formula might be discontinued. The newer version by Tarte (sold elsewhere) is NOT an improvement, but falls short in comparison to this one.
                  This product is a breeze to apply with or without the tanning mitt (though I definitely prefer a mitt and I don't always use the one included here). I haven't found a great tan mitt yet but all I've tried get the job done quicker and easier than using only your hands, and last approximately 2-3 months of twice weekly use. The tan lasts a solid 3 days, sometimes 4, depending on the length and heat of my showers. The fragrance of this product while strong is the most pleasant of any self-tanner ever used. In fact, my daughter who is sensitive to smells loves it when I've just applied. It does dissipate after an hour or so on me. Finally, the color payoff is why I love it so much. It delivers a beautiful medium-neutral tan on my light skin that is very believable. Never orange or streaky (even without the mitt), never too light or dark. I've never felt the need to reapply because the color didn't produce well. It's just perfect. I also use this on my face without any irritation or resulting acne. I tried the Brazilliance tanning wipes for face and did not like them.
                  I hope Ulta will continue to stock this version of Tarte's Brazilliance Self-Tanner. And if you haven't found your perfect self-tanner I highly urge you to try this one.

                  Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

                  I use this product about once a week year-round to keep a decent color. I am pretty pale otherwise. I loved it enough that I used up my first purchase and just bought another. Unless something else really "wows" me, I'll be buying this again and again.

                    So I waited the 8 hours and even long in fact about 12 before I took a shower and it still comes off and I am like five shades whiter than an albino and I don't tan and I really want this to work so I can stop wearing pants all the time. Am I not using it right? I showered and shaved before and even used my sugar scrub before putting the tanner on and I made sure every thing was dry.
