I received the Tarte maracuja bronzing serum in a boxycharm. I was hesitant about using it because I have very fair skin and freckles. But I love good skincare and gave it a try. It's another Tarte product I love now! It doesn't actually "bronze" my skin - just gives it a little warmer touch of color. It's also wonderful for helping keep my skin looking clearer, firmer and more radiant. After trying my first bottle, I had to get another because I don't want to run out! But it only takes a small amount so the bottle actually lasts a few months. There is a slight smell when first applied but it quickly disappears. I recommend this serum for any skin tone because it adds a brighter firmer look and is good for your skin.

I love this oil!!!! I received a bottle in my boxycharm monthly box. I have been using it everyday since!! I just ordered the travel size so I can take it everywhere!! I have suffered from adult acne for years. Since using this oil my breakouts have almost disappeared, and the little I have are much smaller and less painful. I never would have thought an oil could do all the things it claims to do, but this is the real deal. My skin is smoother, and my skin tone is looking better everyday. The self tanner is gradual and never looks orange or fake. Again, I love this oil!!!!

This serum not only soaks in and makes your skin soft and smooth and diminishes lines, it makes your skin GLOW! I feel like I'be been in the islands wearing this serum. Have only been using it a couple of weeks and I'm so excited to see what will happen in the days/weeks to come. A must have for mature women!!! LOVE it!

I really really liked this product when I first got it. I found it evened out my skin tone a bit and my skin felt smooth after it was applied. Unfortunately I have super sensitive skin and after a while, this product started to break me out a bit which absolutely sucks! I really loved it the first week I used it, aside from the smell it's a great product! The smell does fade almost instantly though, well at least for me it did. And it didn't make me look orange or tanned, it just really gave my face a super subtle glow and made me look lively! Which I also really loved. But I just have super ridiculous sensitive skin and like usual, most products with bronzing/tanning ingredients start to break me out. Maybe I will use the product this summer on my shoulders or chest or something because really it's a good product and I would hate to waste the completely full bottle!

I got this in a makeup subscription box and I was skeptical at first and it smells a bit of self tanner but I do love it! I have a light olive complexion and this product adds a nice glow!

I received this in my January Boxycharm and I LOVE it!! It can be a little sticky at first, until it absorbs. I also didn't really care for the smell at first, but now it doesn't bother me. I put it on at night before bed and my skin is super soft and glowy when I wake up. I definitely recommend this product!

I really like this oil. I have quite a few facial oils and this one is my favorite by far. The reason I only gave it a 4 is because of the smell. It smells like sunscreen. Other than that I would recommend this oil.

I love this! I got this in a make-up subscription box and I am in love. After using it for 5 days, I have a healthy glow. I live in Florida but I have Irish skin that burns pretty quickly. I pretty much avoid the sun. This serum is perfect for my complexion and really makes it look bright and healthy!

Works very well to get a healthy natural bronzed glow. Im very pale and this didn't leave my skin a fake or odd color but just gave it a look as if id been in the sun!

I love this bronzing serum. I am about one shade darker than Casper the Ghost, so bronzing products turn me orange or splotchy, but this product did neither. It left a "glow from within," rather than a tan. I used it under my maracuja oil since it was not as thick as the original oil (I have super dry skin), which might effect the bronziness, but I loved my result no matter what. I have only been using this product for a month, and sadly I have to repurchase it since my 2 year-old dumped it onto my carpet. I am hoping this is apart of their permenant line and not just a summer product. I will be needing it for the winter so I won't look so grayish and sickly.

I really like this serum. It has given my skin a nice healthy glow. I have liked maracuja serum and used it daily. But this has really taken it up a notch with this bronzing glow. I had trouble with other bronzes and tanners that seemed to turn orangery. Not this product. Have been using it awhile and like the results.
