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 excellent, and really works! I am very pale, and burn easily. I bought some good quality suntan lotions a couple of years ago (they last 3 years), but soon realised that the factors 20 and 30 that I bought, weren't strong enough. This stuff is....I have even put it to the test on certain areas of my back (bra strap lines), and it's protected them completely. The sprayer is good, it's only lightly perfumed, and it comes out white, so you can initially, even see where you have put it. It also protects from both UVA and UVB rays.

First of all, I honestly have to admit that I am a sucker for Tarte. All of their products are so amazing and it is reassuring to know that their ingredients are natural and they don't test on animals. This sunscreen is different than most in the sense that it is natural and smells great. It doesn't have that typical chemically suncreen smell that almost all of them do. Additionally, it doesn't leave you with that sticky and greasy feeling. This is the only suncreen I use now, and the packaging is super cute. Would highly recommend.

Eye burning is my biggest challenge with any product containing SPF and the Tarte 12 hour primer has always worked great for me with no eye stinging. I actually started using it just when I needed sunblock, but wasting make-up to go to the beach seemed kinda wasteful. So happy to see just the sunblock! i love it. no eye burn. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is that soemtimes i don't think it rubs in completely clear. It is a tiny little white..... I love it anyways......

I'm obsessed with this sunscreen. I've tried a few different facial sunscreens, and a couple by skincare brands, but this one is my favorite by far. It is a bit pricey, but sun protection is so worth it. I love that I can just put it on over top of my makeup and it doesn't smudge it around or anything.

FOR ANYONE READING THIS: Please don't mix this in with moisturizer or any other products. The more you dilute the product, the more you dilute the SPF. Just apply it directly.

I received this as a sample with my purchase of another product..At first I didn't like it then realised I was moisturizing my skin before applying this which made my face look n feel greasy..this is a lotion so most skin types don't need to moisturize before applying this. I like it for everyday and will consider purchasing a full size soon after my current sunscreen runs out. The scent is not bothersome but is evident upon application..I did not have any breakouts using this.

I recently purchased this product because I was looking for a natural and strong sunscreen specifically for my face without harsh chemicals and that wouldn't make me break out. So far so good. I have only used this a few times so far but as soon as summer comes around this will be applied everyday. The packaging this beautiful and the bottle has a silicone like sleeve on it to prevent it from breaking( great for traveling). Lovely fresh scent as well.

This is a great sunscreen. I have sensitive combination/oily skin and I haven't experienced any problems with excess oil or breakouts. The protection provided by Tarteguard is excellent and lasting. I am fair-skinned and prone to sun burns and this is the best sunscreen I've tried. There isn't much of a fragrance. The product requires a bit of 'elbow grease' to work into the skin but the protection it provides is well worth the effort.

It so hard to add sunscreen to a routine on a daily basis, even though this is one of the most essential things for the skin. But sunscreens can be an uncomfortable to wear, due to the greasiness and the fragrance. However this Tarteguard 30 suncreen is amazing for anyone looking for an effective comfortable suncreeen. So easy to wear no caste when you take a picture with flash and overall just an amazing product.

This sunscreen was ok. I got the smaller size to try out. It's fine if you have just the sunscreen on you face. But if you have any moisturizer underneath and apply the tarte sunscreen on top of it it will ball off on your face no matter how it's applied. Using it alone is the only way to avoid balling up. And even then you have to make sure there's no little chunks of sunscreen here and there.

This sunscreen is amazing! I regularly use the Tarte Maracuja Oil, so when I saw that they had brought out a sunscreen I had to buy it. I am extremely pale, and wear sunscreen every day, but they all seemed to interfere with my makeup. This one, on the other hand, acts just like a primer, and actuary extends the wear off my foundation! It dust leave a white cast, and is extremely moisturizing.

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?

Is this specifically for face, or do you use it as a body sunscreen as well?
