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.

I wanted to like this sunscreen so much. I love tarte but it doesn’t always love me. This formula is way to oily and I feel like it doesn’t dry down; that’s a huge no for this oily girl. I also didn’t love the sent. The sent is very strong and it seemed to cause my face to break out. I say this because I’m sensitive to fragrances in my skin care products.

My favorite sunscreen this is the only sunscreen that doesn’t break me out or clog my pores. I have dry sensitive skin and most sunscreens break me out and leave my skin itchy and I hate the smell of most sunscreens, this particular sunscreen smells great and is safe for me to use everyday. Also the bottle has a rubbery texture that makes it easy to hold with slippery hands!!

I purchased mine at Sephora for around $30.. love pretty much every tarte product I have tried so far and this just might be my favorite. My skin tends to be dry, so while it sounds like others feel greasy after using this product, I feel like this gives my skin an awesome glow, is really lightweight, and doesn't break me out. I think it actually works as a great makeup primer on my skin and helps me start off with a fresh looking glow. If you really like matte skin or tend towards being oily, then you probably won't be a big fan.

I bought this as a better option for my face for while I'm doing yard work. I found that others were super oily and would make me break out, but not this. It's fast absorbing which is nice when im running out of daylight. I would prefer a bottle that has a dispenser that releases a little more at once. This one requires a few

It’s not greasy like other sunscreens! It’s also very moisturizing, especially for the face. It’s not a big SPF, but it protects your skin perfectly! During the summer if I forgot this stuff at home when I went to the beach, I would try to find the nearest sephora to buy another one. Other sunscreens just don’t compare to this one! Highly recommend!

I’ve never tried a sunscreen from a cosmetic brand so this was the first and only. I got it as a travel size from Sephora and I was a little skeptical about it at first but it did it’s job. The most important thing was that this didn’t leave me looking like a grease ball in the summer ! And it did make a difference in my makeup. Definitely recommend

As a student studying medicine I can’t stress enough how important sunscreen is ! This is a very lightweight product when applied evenly before make up application ! You can barely feel it’s there and doesn’t get in the way of your makeup ! It’s also very smooth ! Socially great if your going out to the beach and want to use with a natural look !

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,

I had a deluxe sample of this through a Play! by Sephora box. I’m trying to be more consistent about using sunscreen every day since I have fair skin and have already had some severe sunburns, so this being SPF 30 is instantly a huge plus. I like that it has a thinner, more liquid texture and spreads easily without leaving a white cast. Tarte also has a great formula that wears well under makeup without noticeable breaking down after a few hours. And I didn’t burn while using this even during the summer/early fall, which I was very happy about! The only major drawback is the price: $32 for 1.7 fl oz is a bit expensive for me considering this would be something I wear daily.

This is probably one of my favorite sunscreens. It doesn't feel too heavy and I didn't notice any clogged pores or acne as a result. It is still sunscreen so it's a little thicker and doesn't have the same consistency of an everyday face cream, but it is one of the easiest sunscreens that I have found to apply and wear under makeup for everyday.

Is this a good product for people with very oily skin?? I have extremely oily skin especially during the summer.

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

Does this have a tint to it? And do you guys wear it under your makeup?
