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

My daughter first told me about this product after using it to "tan" for a wedding in which she was the Maid of Honor. Coverage is geat! It goes on even and doesn't make you look orange. I highly recommend it!

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

Absolutely love this product. I was very impressed. I'm already pretty tan but I work a lot so laying out isn't always an option. But this is magic in a bottle. Makes my skin look glamours. The mit could be better designed to stay on your hand better, but that's my only complaint. You can get multiple uses out of this bronzer. I love how it makes me look like I have laid in the sun for our and covers up bumps and scratches. Very satisfied

    For the most part I love everything about this product! It even stays on through my water aerobics class! The only real complaint I have is that it does rub off on my clothes some, even after it is dry on my skin. It would be great to perfect that situation.

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

        The product was good overall but it definitely rubbed off on my couch and clothes. I did wait at least 30 seconds for her to dry on but maybe a little more time is needed to let it set. I did try it again and waited a bit longer, it helped but I still noticed a little rub off. I did like the color a lot, it definitely gave me a nice looking tan so I will finish the product but won't be buying it again.

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

          I put a dab of this on my arm at the store and instantly fell in love. I didn't even know the price, I just knew I had to have it! I love using it on my legs when wearing shorts or a dress. It blends in nice with my skin, evens out my skin tone and makes my skin appear flawless! It says it is matte but it does have a sheen to it as it sparkles s little in the right light, but I don't mind it:)

            I use a self tanner weekly on my whole body but my for arms and lowers legs never take the color as well as the rest of my body. I use this product to give those lighter areas an extra boost of color. This product lasts all day and looks natural on my fair skin. It does need to be blended well as the product is thick. I also have dry skin year round so moisturizing before I apply prevents and mild patchiness as the day goes on.

              Hi! I purchased this product at Ulta, and the color said Park ave. Princess. The sales women actually took it off the shelf so I didn't notice the color until I got home. Does it come in other shades as well. If so, how many? Thanks in advance.

                A:

                If you allow the product to absorb for at least 30 seconds after application before dressing or before going to bed, it should not transfer onto clothing or sheets.

                This product (Body Perfector) is a temporary product that washes off with soap and water, while the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face and Body Self Tanner is a self tanning product that provides a lasting tan for a few days (does not wash off).

            • 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.

                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.

              • Staff Expert

                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:
