    Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

    This very pale girl was prepping for her vacation when she realized that her ultra white legs might frighten fellow beach-goers. GASP! I needed a sunless asnwer and I needed it fast. After heavy research I scooped up Tarte's waterproof body perfector.
    It looked far too dark for my light skin at first, but as I rubbed it in a beautiful glow developed, flawlessly blurring any veins or hair follicles that may or may not have tarnished my wondrous stems only seconds before. After rejoicing in my underwear for approximately the length of one Taylor Swift song, and admiring my orange-free instant-tan, I jumped into my white shorts and spent the day constantly checking my crotch for some sort of bronzed chaffing situation. To my surprise, it never happened, truly the stuff of miracles. It even stayed on throughout the shower (I did not exfoliate or shave) and my legs were still beautifully bronze the following day, as I lounged around my house, binge-watching OITNB. I saw the pizza dude check out my legs, I think he was really impressed with the effectiveness of the product.
    *exfoliate thoroughly prior to use
    *apply to one area at a time (calf, then thigh…) *let dry completely after applying
    *do not use towel or washcloth to remove, as you will have completely destroyed said linen, use loofa or sponge
    *show off those amazing legs and bask in all your gorgeous wonder, because you look good, reeeaaallly good.

    Comments about Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector:

    Naturally, I have a rather pale complexion. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I was looking for something that would give me a glow. This product is wonderful! It does not make me orange. With is a BIG problem for me when I try brozers,self tanners, or anything that promises a glow. This product gives you a true matte finish which is perfect for every day use. Sure it's a bit high, as far as the price, but it will last.

        I am pretty pale and this went on completely evenly and was extremely easy to apply! It even comes with a mitt to apply so you don't get the tanner all over your hands. Just be careful to let it dry before you get dressed or it will get on your clothes. Also, it gives great natural looking color! Worth every penny

          Initially I loved the color, texture, ease of application. As the day wore on, it stained my clothes so that my white silk blouse looked tan wherever my skin touched it! I tried again applying carefully and allowed it to dry for an hour before dressing. Same thing, ruined another top.

                OK... I have tried tons of self tanners! I used to get airbrush tans every week too. I was a little hesitant with this product because of its cost, but it is the best self tanner I've ever used. It went on perfectly, there was no streaking, the color is not orange at all, its lightweight and best of all... it isn't sticky! I am so excited to have found this. I wish I could buy it in bulk :)

                Really liked the shade and it did cover most of the spots that I don't like on my legs.

                • Q:

                  Being that this comes off with soap and water, I'm guessing this is a temporary tan...? So this is not a product that you would continue to use to "build-up" color.. ?

                    You can layer as you apply for more opaque color. Yes, this product washes off upon showering/bathing with soap & water.

                    How to Use-
                    Dispense a generous amount of mararcuja rainforest glow and apply to one body part at a time (adding more as needed). Blend with fingers until the sheer bronze color is even. Allow body perfector to absorb for at least 30 seconds before dressing. Simply wash off your temporary tan with soap and water.

                  Can you use this to cover self-tanners that have started to fade or that are getting blotchy? Or should you only apply to skin without self-tanner on it? Thank you.

                    A:

                    The Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector is a matte, waterproof formula that feels more like a cream; the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face and Body Self Tanner has more of a gel texture that is buildable with multiple uses. They both leave an easy, streak-free golden bronze tan with help of the applicator mitt.

                    A:

                    While Tarte has not tested use with sunscreen, this product has a creamy, whipped formula that when applied with the included mitt results in an easy, clean and streak-free tan that won’t budge or transfer if you are worried about compromising the finish. We would recommend using your sunscreen before applying the product to ensure that your skin has absorbed all of the benefits of the sunscreen first! If you are concerned about maintaining the added benefit of the waterproof formula, you could always go for a waterproof sunscreen to make sure both your instant tan and sun protection stay put!

                    A:

                    This product is specifically designed for use on the body to help mask uneven skin tone, imperfections and varicose veins while it imparts a healthy, natural-looking tan. That said, if you would like to use it on your face, we would recommend applying a little at a time to build in order to achieve the desired look. If too much is applied, simply wash off with soap and water and start over. If you are looking to add some color to your face alone, Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanning Facial Towelettes (Item #: 2272080, 10-pack) offer a streak-free application in a convenient, portable, single-use towelette:
