    Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face And Body Self-Tanner:

    I use this once a week and its gives a nice natural glow. Not too dark and doesn't streak. i like to mix it with a little lotion because it can be hard to apply since it's a gel. But I love it!

            The first time I used this I thought it was simple and easy. But last night when I went to refresh, it turned out awful! I had a lot of streaking and blotchy marks. After my shower most of them went away, but now the areas where I had the streaks don't have much of a tan. I'm going to give it one more try.

                  Works best for my dry skin type

                  from Memphis, TN

                  Comments about Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face And Body Self-Tanner:

                  I don't like to exfoliate my sensitive skin so I just use a wash cloth all over for a "soft" exfoliation. Have also found that this works best when I use the Olay In-Shower Lotion when I wash at night before applying. I also shave with that lotion. For whatever reason it helps this self tanner apply flawlessly after I get out and dry off. For those having issues sweating at night, do this at least an hour before you get in bed! Wear light flowy thin cotton clothing. Sleep under a sheet only and make sure you have your air or fan running. This applies to most self tanners. The only down side is that it comes off immediately if I spend any time in the pool :( but all the others have too

                    I used this and it works really well! I used it to make a cute little heart on my leg, and once I showered that night, an adorable tan tattoo was left. I loved it! It lasted for 3+ days.

                      I'm very fair skinned. I am also a mom, so I don't have a lot of time to spend waiting for a tanner to develop or dry. I decided to give this a try since I am a huge fan of Tarte products. I was pleasantly surprised. I've been using this now almost a month and it is my go-to tanning product. It's super easy to use, doesn't feel greasy or oily and blends out really nicely. The smells a little funky but not bad. It will wash off if you don't wait at least 12 hours to shower, shave or sweat so I like to apply it a little before bed. You only have to wait 10 minutes before you get dressed. I've never had an issue with it staining the sheets or my clothes. I apply once or twice a week to maintain a nice, natural color. It is a little pricey but for ease of use, to me it is worth it.

                          The Brazilliance Maracuja Self-Tanner is formulated for all skin types and dermatologist-tested, and, like all Tarte products, is formulated without common irritants such as mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten. For those with sensitive skin or allergies, we always recommend to consult your physician if you have any concerns regarding a particular formula or ingredient. All ingredients are listed below for easy reference:

                          A:

                          This product is powered by "skinvigorating" ingredients like maracuja, sunflower seed oil, and vitamin E, all known to moisturize, regenerate, and condition for firmer, brighter, smoother skin and maximum hydration.

                          Thanks to the included application mitt, this self tanner delivers the moisturizing effect you want with the easy, streak-free tan you need for the perfect faux glow. No need to apply moisturizer before! We also recommend waiting at least 8 hours before showering, shaving and sweating to allow a seamless tan to fully develop.

                          Yes, because this product does not provide any sun protection and is not formulated with sunscreen ingredients, you can still tan naturally. We do recommend wearing an SPF product of some sort to protect skin from the damaging effects of UV rays! We hope this info helps. :-)

                          Depending on application area (arms and legs or full body), one full-size Brazilliance can last between 10-20 uses when following the Tarte technique for dispensing quarter-sized amounts.

                          It depends on how much formula you use. You can achieve the same subtle faux glow as the towelettes as you can with the self tanner, or simply apply more for a darker bronzed look.

                          Wait at least 8 hours before showering, shaving and sweating to allow a seamless tan to fully develop. After this period, the effect will be sweatproof. Use Brazilliance 1-2 times a week to maintain a gorgeous, natural-looking tan.

                        Im going on vacation in June (I know it's a long time away) and I am planning on purchasing this product to get a gradual tan before I go and get a real tan. I have somewhat fair skin. I was wondering if I can still go out and get a tan with this on top of my skin. Like would I be able to stil get a deep tan with this on?
                        Thanks!

                          Yes, you can still tan naturally after applying Brazilliance Self-Tanner, because it is not formulated with any sunscreens.

                          For streak-free results and to reduce mess, we recommend using the included applicator mitt to apply Brazilliance, though you can use your hands if you prefer. Be sure to rinse palms and fingers with water immediately after application to prevent staining of hands.

                          While we do recommend exfoliating prior to application, and shaving exfoliates the skin, shaving is a personal preference. Simply exfoliate normally, and follow the steps using the applicator mitt in long, even strokes to blend seamlessly.

                          Yes, this is a self tanner, not a body makeup, so once applied, it does not wash off. We recommend waiting a few hours for your color to fully develop before showering or bathing. Results from a single application should last a few days up to a week, but could fade quicker with extra exposure to water such as swimming or frequent bathing.

                          The signature self tanner odor is caused by an ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone. This product does contain Dihydroxyacetone, as this ingredient is what helps the color develop on your skin. We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store, where we have a tester of this product that you can try to see if the scent is unpleasant to you:

If applying soon after, you may want to use the mitt to apply your sunscreen as well to keep your tan from streaking.
