Matte Body Perfection Gel

Tan

Item #: 2273959 Size: 3.0 oz

Ask a Question
What is it? It's NOT a self-tanner. It's MORE than a bronzer. It's a one-shade-fits-all tinted skin smoothing body moisturizer that lasts all day into the night.

No exfoliation - no streaks, no-transfer, no self-tanning smell...just a natural matte tan.

How does it work? Body perfection gel/tan instantly blurs the appearance of dry skin, uneven skin tone, redness, rough skin, varicose veins even stretch marks. Hyaluronic microspheres help to firm, tone and hydrate. Shea butter moisturizes and ceramides lock in moisture.

DHA, synthetic fragrance, talc, wax, sulfate and phthalate free formulation
Pat onto legs, arms, décolleté or anywhere the body needs perfection. Smooth with fingertips. Layer for desired tan. Do not moisturize before application as the skin may not absorb the body perfection gel properly and may cause streaking or transfer.

    Comments about Per-fekt Matte Body Perfection Gel:

    I am in love with this self tanner/bronzer. I have bright white legs and have been reluctant to wear shorts. Not anymore... This gives my legs a nice light even tan color and any imperfections are not noticeable after this is applied. Next time I purchase, I will get the one with SPF 30.

      I have been using this product for about 3years now and it is the best for a beautiful believable tan! Dries quick and goes on smooth! Don't panic if it looks like it is going on too dark just keep working it in to your skin. Also a little goes a long way and you can always add more. Get ready for compliments!

          I have the face variation and bought the oxygenation after receiving a sample of it. I love this stuff. Not sure if it works on very dry skin but it does all it claims to do. Once again, the price is a little steep for this product as I'm not sure how many uses the bottle will give. Right now, this is the only product of its kind so I would re-purchase.

                          Went in the store and had the product applied to my arm. Facial "makeup" as well. Bought the entire line! It is just fantastic! Natural, lightweight & gives you a natural glow while really smoothing out your skin! Doesn't rub off on clothing and returned two days later to buy another couple tubes (5X pts:) one for home & one for travel. Really is the best product I have used thus far & highly recommend it.

                              i really did like the effect that it gave you, but they say it doesn't come off on your clothes and it does (and of course, it had to be white pants). after about a month it started coming out in clumps and you couldn't use it anymore. this stuff isn't cheap either. i wish someone would address this issue of clumping and come up with a solution. the washing machine took care of the white pants. the clumping is another problem. i may buy this body gel one more time, but if the clumping happens again i'm returning it for my $$ back. i would possibly recommend this product, but would reveal issues that i had with it.

                                  Our body perfection gel provides a hydrating, sunkissed glow to the body, some customers like to use the excess from body application on their face for contouring.

                                  Hope this helped!

                                I love to be dark all year round as I feel it slims me and does also make my self esteem increase. Is this as dark as the darkest st tropez? If not, can I use this with St Tropez to help my stretch marks and dry skin and get the super dark color I love? If I can use it together, which order of usage should I use?

                                  Matte Body Perfection Gel features a universal tan shade. Because this is a body makeup rather than a self tanner, you can certainly apply it to your tanned skin after the color has fully developed from your self tanner (follow your self tanner's directions for best results). Matte Body Perfection Gel should only be applied to clean skin to avoid streaking or transfer, so after self tanning, shower and allow skin to dry prior to application of Matte Body Perfection Gel.

                                  We do not advise using the Matte Body Perfection Gel with a sunscreen or body moisturizer, as the skin may not absorb the product properly and may cause streaking or transfer. A spray sunscreen may work after application, just take care to mist evenly and to gently pat rather than rub into the skin to avoid causing any streaking or transfer of the Matte Body Perfection Gel.

                                I have several questions about your product, Matte Body Perfection Gel:

                                A) How well will this product cover scars, especially on the upper back and shoulders?

                                B)Does this product work well on the face as well?

                                C)How is sensitive skin affected by it?

                                D)Will it make my skin oily?

                                I'm thinking about getting this product for my senior pictures, but I want to make sure that it's the best product for me. I can't wear moisturizers or makeup that will make my skin look oily for my pictures, but I already have combination skin so I'm looking for a product that won't make it any worse. Thank you!!!

                                  This product is sheer and helps to reduce the appearance of as well as dry skin, uneven skin tone, redness, rough skin, self tanner streaks, stretch marks, and varicose veins. Per-fekt makes no claims regarding scarring.

                                  For the face, we recommend the Skin Perfection Gel:
                                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod10141152

                                  Matte Body Perfection Gel is DHA-free, synthetic fragrance-free, talc-free, wax-free, sulfate-free and phthalate-free. If you have a concern about a particular ingredient or formula, it is always best to consult your physician.

                                  Matte Body Perfection Gel is not oil-free. Skin Perfection Gel for the face is oil-free.

                                  We hope this info helps! :-)

Most self tanning I have tried are all more of a golden yellow tone to where it doesn't match my asian brown olive tone. My question is does it have a golden yellow tone or more of a brown bronze color?

                                  Matte Body Perfection Gel is not a self tanner. It is a long wearing tinted body perfecting lotion that washes off in the bath or shower.

                                Does this product have a bad smell like other tanners?

                                  This product does not contain DHA, the ingredient that gives traditional self tanners their signature odor.

                                  Once applied and allowed to dry, this product provides lasting, sweat-resistant wear that stands up well to heat and humidity. Do not moisturize before application, as skin may not absorb Matte Body Perfection Gel properly and may cause streaking or transfer.
