As soon as I saw the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skincare product launch, I fell in love with the packaging. It’s gorgeous and perfect for getting us into that Spring/Summer mood. Am I right?!?! Beautiful packaging isn’t enough to make me fall in love with a product, I still need to have ingredients that prove beneficial to my skin. I need to see improvements on my face as I’m using them. You’re in luck guys because Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Skincare line is very, very impressive!
Included in this collection of products is the Rainforest of the Sea™ Antioxidant Complex which features Marine Algae and Flower Extracts. The Antioxidant Complex is included in the product line to help protect our skin, nourish our skin and help refresh dry, dehydrated skin types. I’ve seen other brands feature Marine Antioxidants (Algae, etc) in their ingredients, but the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Collection is at a much better price point for my budget.
I was sent three products from Tarte to try. A Hypo-Allergenic Cleanser, A Hydrating Mist and a Gel Moisturizer. I have been trying these for at least three weeks and I’ve got some comments on each of the products below. Overall, I think that these are a nice set of products that work great when used with one another!
Deep Dive Cleansing Gel $25.00
I don’t often use a cleansing gel anymore. Most of the time they tend to dry out my skin too much. However, this cleansing gel actually works on my sensitive, combination skin perfectly! The scent is so nice (lavender oil) and the addition of Vitamin C is nice for a brightening boost to the complexion! This cleanser claims to remove makeup, even waterproof, but I don’t know if I’d agree with that 100%. It is true that this will remove your makeup really nicely, but if you’re wearing a lot of makeup or a lot of waterproof makeup, I’d still do a double cleanse with a Micellear Water or a Cleansing Balm. That’s just my opinion! Overall though, a very nice cleanser for a lot of skin types!
Drink of H20 Hydrating Boost $39.00
With the addition of Hyaluronic Acid and Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea™ Antioxidant Complex, this water-gel moisturizer really packs a powerful punch! It features the Marine Complex of Algae and Marine Flower Extracts, Caffeine which helps to plump up the skin and get the blood flowing, Lentil Seed which helps to reduce the appearance of pores and also Coconut Oil which is always a nice treat to the skin! This moisturizer is indeed very lightweight, but it is really moisturizing and soothing on the skin. The one thing I really like about the Hydrating Boost is that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy and it sinks into the skin quickly. I love to use this on my face before applying makeup as it helps to make sure my skin is hydrated before putting on makeup that can sometimes look heavy and caked on my face. Sure it’s lightweight, but don’t let the texture fool you into thinking it won’t hydrate your skin!
Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist $25.00
