Product Description


tarte’s first ever vegan, non-chemical sunscreen to help protect, moisturize, brighten & re-invigorate skin for a youthful-looking appearance.

Practice safe summer all year round with tarte’s first multi-tasking, antioxidant-infused daily sunscreen. The lightweight, non-sticky liquid lotion contains all mineral, non-chemical sunscreen ingredients to help protect against the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays that can cause dryness, redness, dark spots, fine lines & wrinkles, among other skincare beauty boundaries. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use, the skinvigorating™ formula is also infused with maracuja, red algae, soybean, apple & honeysuckle extracts to nourish, tone & retain moisture while helping to combat signs of aging for a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance. The fresh, ocean’s lily scent allows for luxurious, spa-like daily applications while the high-performance liquid emulsion seamlessly melts into skin, leaving it supremely soft & silky, without ever leaving a white cast.

This is one of my favorite facial sunscreens - it's lightweight and doesn't feel greasy. It doesn't clog my pores, absorbs quickly, and protects well against UV rays. I'd still recommend following basic sun safety tips while using it like reapplying every 2 hours, after swimming or towel drying, and wearing sun protective clothing (like sunglasses and a hat) to prevent sun damage!

This sunscreen had absolutely no white-cast. It went on fine but I felt like it made my face really shiny? I don't have oily skin but I do use Peter Thomas Roth Cloud Cream and when I put this on top, it made me shiny and feel oily. On it's own it's ok but definitely not my favorite. I'll stick with my Smashbox BB cream, it has 30 SPF AND minimizes pores, AND is tinted. It's still my favorite.

I have mixed feelings about this product. I love the idea of a mist sunscreen for application over foundation mid day but this one makes me a little too oily. The couple times I've used it I've looked in the mirror later on after application and have found a white film over my skin. It easily blots away but you have to remember to blot or else you'll walk around with stuff on your face and who wants that?

The Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum has a SPF of 30. I have used it on both my face and body. It does not cause any breakouts or skin irritation like some other brands. Tarte advertises their products as vegan and formulated without paragons, mineral oil,  phthalates, sodium laurel sulfates, and gluten, which makes a difference in how the products effect the skin.

I really like using this sunscreen underneath my makeup and alone. I have very fair skin and burn easily, but I never burned with this. It is lightweight, smells nice, and comes in a cute bottle. It is pretty small too, so you can take it with you wherever you go. I usually breakout and didn't seem to have a problem with this, most likely because the ingredients aren't too awful.

Love this product! One of the best things you can do for your skin is to buy a good sunscreen. This is great for the face and helps reduce wrinkles and sunspots. This sunscreen doesn't hinder my makeup application if I let it sit for 15-20 minutes before applying my primer and foundation.

In my opinion Tarte is one of the most under rated skin care companies! I absolutely love this brand! Not only do all of their products work extremely well, they also smell great! I love this sunscreen because it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy like a lot of other sunscreens and I feel like I am actually getting great protection with it! Have repurchased this product several times!

I think this sunscreen was good at protecting as well as hydrating, without feeling greasy. I personally don't really like sunscreen, so although it was good for my skin a feel like you can get cheap drug store sun screen to achieve the same effect.

Wear this under makeup or without makeup and you're covered! Nice scent and works great I picked this up at Sephora for the summer and I can tell it's going to last for a long time. A little goes along way! And it doesn't have that terrible sunscreen scent like other brands. A summer MUST.

I really like the tarte Tartguard. I have really sensitive skin and I also burn really easy. This does not cause any issues with my skin and protects my skin from harmful sun with just normal daily use. It works well under my foundation and does not cause oxidation. My only complain would be that my t zone does get oiler than normal about half way through my day when I use this.

I heard that this leaves a white look to your skin. Is that true? And if so, how bad does it look?
