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'll be very honest to say that I did not try this out prior to purchasing, but I went ahead and put in my order for a full sized bottle anyway, seeing how much I love all of my Tarte products that I have purchased AND also the fact that I was running low on another suncreen product from a different brand that I was using previously.

This did not disappoint at all, it goes on easy and did not leave a white cast. However one lippie off the review due to 2 factors:
- It is not waterproof
- It leaves a noticeable shine on my face

The shine actually did not bother me too much as I have since learnt that I should skip my moisturizer when I use this sunscreen in the day, this is so moisturizing on its own and if I layered my moisturizer before it my skin just became too shiny/oily. But not being waterproof meant that I needed to purchase another sunscreen for that reason alone.

Packaging did not disappoint (as always), I could get past the smell. I read most of the reviews that mentioned about it being heavily fragranced but it smells very outdoor-sy and fresh to me. Texture is not too thick and application is easy. I would most probably continue to purchase this until something else comes along that is waterproof as well as does not leave a white cast post application while maintaining that smooth lotion texture at the same time.

Smells like a dream and applies evenly and smoothly under makeup. It doesn't alter the consistency of anything you layer on top. It's great as an add on for days where you might get more sun. Lovely!

I only had to use a little bit and applied it all over my face every few hours! It was great, and there was no sticky feeling. I would definitely use it again! Great Summer or all year round product!

I love the smell of it and how it doesn't feel super heavy on the skin! I would recommend it to people who have gentle skin because it's not super harsh or anything. I wouldn't say it's super pricey

Target is my absolute favorite brand for anything. Tarte tarteguard is the bomb. It’s not too too pricey. It stays on all day long with no problems. It’s gentle on your skin. I’d recommend and buy again.

Great price. Love the smell. Good protection in southern LA. I bought this from ulta a few months ago. Aimee’s over but still good to wear sunscreen. A little sticky I find but probably just my skin

I’ve never been. Fan of sunscreens especially for my face because they leave my skin feeling nasty and greasy and this one does not! And it smells great but it’s a light scent! It sinks right in and isn’t thick like most sunscreens!

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