I would (and did) buy this product again!

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Good natural tan color

Cons

  • The smell is not terrible, but could be better

Best Uses

  • I use this product about once a week

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.

  • Easy To Apply
  • Long Lasting Tan
  • Natural Tan
  • Not Greasy
  • Works Quickly

Cons

    Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

    Been using for years with great results. A bit pricey, but worth it. I tried budget brands but turned orange every time, so I stick with Tarte. Seems to work just fine even when I am too lazy to exfoliate. When Springtime hits, I put on 2 applications within the first week. Then I maintain a great tan by applying every 1-2 weeks thereafter. I get lots of compliments on my skin and my coworkers think that I hang out at the beach every weekend. Also, helps to hide my aging skin - spots and cellulite.

      I have a farmers tan and don't lay out a whole lot. Dark tanned arms but lighter natural tan on my legs and tummy. This stuff bumps up my legs and tummy to exactly match my arms. Super color. Not too dark or orange.

      terrible for the tanless

      By Alexabobexa

      from California

      Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

      I purchased this tanner based on the great reviews, but I have not idea how it got such great reviews. I am fair skinned but I am able to tan, I applied this hoping for a decent color on a day I had nothing to do. I made brownies about four hours after applying and all I did was rinse of my bowl and where the water splashed I had white marks from where the tanner washed off. I then took a good look at my tan and noticed how the longer it was on, the more patches and balling up it was on my skin. This was on a day I was inside and did not sweat and made sure not to sit after my tan. It is the worst self tanner I have ever used. Avoid if you are not already tanned at all, or you will see patches of your white skin where the tanner separates, especially on your ankles and elbows.

      love hate this product

      By Dee

      from Staten Island New York

      Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

      After all the great reviews I decided to give it a try. While i love the color pay off I get and the smell isn't bad at all I find no matter what I do how many times I have applied it rubs off a little and when I take a shower it literally washes away! I don't get it! I do have dry skin but I make sure to use lotion the day I applied it so it doesn't "flake" or peel away....which doesn't happen but as soon as I take a shower (way the 8hrs it tells you to wait for the color to develop) it washes away. I know their are some brands that this is normal and after washing you still have a tan but this isn't the case with this product I get out of the shower and I have no tan left and it's all patchy. I really like this product the way the color forms but I'm on the fence! I noticed in another brand name store that sells Tarte they came out with an updated formula of this. I don't know why ulta doesn't have that version I'll just have to get from the other place

        I've been wanting to try Tart's Brazilliance for a while now, and I am so glad I did! The first application gave me a slight glow, but wasn't as dark as I wanted it to be so I applied a second "layer" the next day and it was just what I was going for! I love when self tanners give you the ability to layer on your tan so you can customize your glow. It has been about a week since my last application and I still have color left! I will definitely keep this one in rotation all summer

        Best Uses

          Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner & Mitt:

          I was really excited to try this based upon reviews, but was extremely disappointed that I did. The mitt it comes with is a cheap version of one. I applied at night with a mitt I always have good luck with. It went on smoothly and has a color guard for even application. However, it dries slowly, leaving almost a sticky residue. The smell is tolerable and gone after showering the next morning. I was pleased with the color and appearance the first day or two, but began noticing a splotchy fade on day three and by the end of day four I deliberately exfoliated to remove the unevenness of what was left. Thank goodness for Ulta's return policy. Will go back to the tried and true St. Tropez - Self Tanning Bronzing Mousse.

            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.

              This product is great for an all-over glowing look, but if you're looking for fuller coverage, you could try our Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector. It's great for helping to even skin tone and comes off in the shower. It's great for events, but if you're looking for your tan to last a few days, we recommend sticking with Brazilliance.

              A:

              Thanks for reaching out! This product is a great self-tanner that develops into a natural-looking, deep-toned bronze in as little as 4 hours. If you're looking for more coverage to help conceal imperfections, we recommend trying our Rainforest glow instant matte waterproof body perfector. It imparts a healthy, natural-looking bronze instantly and helps fade the appearance imperfections and uneven skin tone. Unlike our Brazilliance self tanner which lasts a few days, this body bronzing lotion washes off soap and water, but it contains amazing skin-loving ingredients so your skin still feels soft and looks radiant afterwards.
