Product Description

WHAT IT IS

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

WHAT IT DOES
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.

I love this sunscreen! I have such pale sensitive acne prone skin I’m always worried about what to put on as to not irritate or cause a breakout and this was beyond great for my skin! It went on easily and I wouldn’t use any other sunscreen, worth it!

My face has never been so protected. This product was hard to use. First time buying this summer, not disappointed in the effectiveness of this product. Tarte makes products with simple packaging. No room for improvements, product is great!

Personally I love this sunscreen. It is a little pricey but it works really well alone and under makeup. I definitely recommend it. I have sensitive skin and it didn't dry out my skin nor did it give me any type of negative reaction to it.

I found a sample bottle of this that I had acquired somewhere along the line. I've used it a few times and like it decently. I don't think I will repurchase the full-size once I run out, though. I think cheaper alternatives do the job just as well.

I love it. It smells amazing and it protects my skin from day to day life routine. I just wish if it had more SPF in it than just 30. I would consider repurchasing it and I recommend it. I like tarte products in general. They are amazing.

I received a few samples of this with some of my orders from Tarte. I've used it after moisturizing and before primer and it does a nice job of preventing sunburn and damage. I really like this product, though I am not sure if I think it is completely necessary in my routine.

This is one of my new favorite products especially for the transition from spring to summer. No matter what time of year it is always a good idea to wear sunscreen, however, most of us probably are not motivated to apply a greasy formula to our face that smells of coconuts and bananas all year round. This product is a great way of changing that. The packaging is beyond adorable and I like that it has a silicon cover on it, which would allow for a good grip if on the beach or by the pool. The only pitfall of it that I see thus far is the price, it's pretty pricey when it's possible to buy a facial moisturizer and sunscreen much cheaper at a drugstore. If we are being honest it is a glorified $32 sunscreen, however, the packaging, scent, and overall feel of the product is enough payoff for the money. The overall experience definitely makes me want to apply it daily.I have read reviews on this product that it makes some people break out, my skin type is normal to dry and I have had no issue. The scent is very nice and subtle. In my experience I have noticed that when it is first applied it does make my face slightly tacky (as any sunscreen would), but about 10-15 minutes later my skin is left feeling very smooth. Application is easy and the product does "melt into the skin" as advertised. in relation to the extra benefits that Tarte claims it has, My skin does seem a bit firmer while using it. My makeup applies easily over it and is left very smooth. Note: I have not foundation over this. the only makeup product applied directly over tarteguard was a pressed blush.
I love Tarte cosmetics and honestly I wish I had the money to buy all their products because they can even make sun screen amazing! This cute little purple bottle contains a great sun protectant that gets the job done and it doesn't irritate my skin like many drugstore face spf's. I also love that like every other product of theirs, it's paraben free, meaning that the ingredients are swapped out for more natural ones. Because I have lupus, I have to be very careful to protect myself from the sun, so thanks to Tarte I am able to go out without the worry of causing myself harm. Now about ease of application, that is made simple by the pump on the top of the bottle allowing you to control how much product you want. The formula itself is very creamy and feels soft on the skin without feeling greasy. And lastly, unlike most sunscreens, tarte's spf smells really good! Although this may be on the higher end of the price spectrum, it's every bit worth it when it comes to protecting your healt
I actually like this sunscreen a lot. My skin is very dry, sensitive and I'm super pale. I've given up on tinted sun protection - the tint is always, always too dark and orange. Finally decided it's better for me to stick with the white stuff cause that's closer to my actual skin tone. This is a little bit shiny at first but I just make sure to give it a few minutes to absorb.. That said, I don't think this product is for those with oilier skin. The texture is smooth like a light lotion - it doesn't have that coagulated feeling that lots of physical sunscreens have. 
There's a slight fragrance (which I could do without) but I haven't gotten any allergic reactions from it and it doesn't bother me once it soaks in. The packaging is very nice, it has that rubberized coating all over the outside. I like that you can pump out a 1/2 pump if you want. 
I bought it during the F+F sale at 20% off so the price was right. I'd repurchase when I run out.

Tarte is a great brand as is but being new to using their sun care products I was surprisingly impressed with this. The packaging is cute. I liked my skin didn't get too oily and I felt my skincare needs were protected with this product.

I really like this sunscreen. Absorbs really well. Love the bottle, super cute and a gorgeous color. Did leave my skin feeling a bit oily but nothing to bad. I don't know if I would repurchase, just because I'm always forgetting to apply sunscreen

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