maracuja: rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs) and vitamin C known to replenish and rebuild for firmer, brighter, smoother skin and maximum hydration
allantoin: helps heal and soothe skin
larch extract: nourishes and helps prevent moisture loss
self-tanning complex: allows for a natural-looking bronze color with anti-inflammatory effects


Product performance: Invigorate your complexion as you impart a gradual, subtle radiance with tarte’s revolutionary bronzing serum. This multi-tasking elixir is powered by maracuja and plant extracts to hydrate, brighten and even skin tone as it helps fight signs of aging for a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance. The infused self-tanning complex delivers instant radiance as it imparts a gradual, natural-looking bronze for a healthy, glowing complexion over time. The fragrant silky texture is infused with herbal notes—bergamot, gardenia, lily of the valley and jasmine—to give you a spa-like pampering with every application.

    Is not like the original maracuja oil and does have a very strong smell at first. I do notice a small color difference but it doesn't cling to dry spots so the tan is not patchy, better to use this then applying actual tanner to your face.

    I see a few negative reviews about this product, so I'd like to express my thoughts about this bronzing serum. I have light skin, and over time, I've noticed my skin is more bronzed, but not overtly so. It's fairly subtle, but it really is more of an enhancement and produces more of a glow, rather than something that totally bronzes your skin. I don't find this formula to be too sticky, it absorbs nicely, and my makeup looks visibly better when I use it. If I forget to put it on, I lament and lament because it just gives such a nice glow. My 35ish year young skin is pretty picky, and I've never had any blemishes because of this product. I wash my face, use this first, spray some Tarte Marine Mist setting spray, apply Tarte BB cream, and top it off with some Tarte Air Brush foundation (the loose, powder foundation). I am a legit Tartelette. I will say that the instructions say to use about three drops, and that's crazy, three drops barely cover a cheek. I fill the dropper about a quarter to one third of the way full. I haven't used the original maracuja oil, but I'd love to try that soon. All I can say is this is a nice product to enhance the skin and I hope Tarte continues to carry it.

    So this was one of the first things I bought from Tarte and I am so back and forth with this product! I definitely still use it, but not daily. It looks lovely over an existing tan (or balancing out a slight sunburn - oops) but you have to be careful what products you layer under or over it otherwise sometimes it will cause a burning sensation? It's odd. I use Tarte's Drink of H20 daily, but when used with this, my face turns bright red and burns as if I'm having an allergic reaction...but only for about 15 minutes. Yet on their own, no reaction. It makes me understand why there are so many mixed reviews on this product. I just typically only use it on it's own, like if I'm going make-up free, to the beach or park, etc. Definitely adds a lovely even tan and glow though! No highlighter or bronzer necessary.
