2 for $45 tarte LUXURY skincare plus my current favorites!

Skincare is SO important but it can be equally overwhelming. If you feel like you’re starting from scratch and will have to spend a ton of money on a bunch of new products, it can be super intimidating. Recently when sharing more about beauty and skincare I’ve gotten a lot of requests for products that are affordable, yet effective. I am SO excited to share what I’ve found with tarte skincare-especially while they are having a killer skincare-focused sale!

I’ve been using tarte skincare products for a few months and have found their stuff to be AWESOME. It’s all chock-full of innovative uses of active ingredients and proprietary blends that GET IT DONE! I would 100% consider these products luxury, high-end skincare, but without the crazy price tag. Keep reading for my honest reviews of some of their newest products!

From April 21 12am-23 3am EST, tarte is doing a Skincare event where you can choose your very own 2-step skincare routine for only $45 with code MYKIT ($96 value)!! You also get a 7 day skincare challenge with any purchase over $55! All of tarte’s skincare products are vegan and hypoallergenic, formulated with natural ingredients, and always made without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan & gluten. I have seen great results with each product I've tried, so I'm DYING that you can get products for only $22.50 each; that's pretty much drugstore pricing for super upscale products!!

Deep Dive Cleansing Gel

This cleanser is so lightweight and fresh, it makes my skin feel super refreshed and youthful. If you’re looking for something that isn’t weighted down by heavy ingredients or fragrances, this is it! It’s sulfate-free so it doesn’t strip my skin but still has a lather (!!) so that it even removes waterproof makeup. 

This cleanser also utilizes algae (like some other very expensive skin care out there!) and provitamin b5 to infuse TONS of moisture. It has almost 1400 perfect reviews on tarte's website, so don't just take it from me!

Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic Serum

I tried this serum for the first time recently and I am LOVING it. It is the lightest serum I have ever used. If you're sensitive to serums that feel heavy or greasy, THIS gel-like formula is for you!! It feels like water, but packs a super punch of hyaluronic acid to up the moisture ante in a huge way. Hyaluronic acid is such a buzz ingredient right now, and for good reason! It holds 1000 times its weight in water, pulling in hydration and keeping your skin moisturized all day. This tarte serum is super concentrated and normally only $42, but with this deal you can get this AND something else for $45! Layer it under a cream or even under your makeup.

Deep Sea Collagen Serum

This Deep Sea Collagen Serum has a more traditional texture, as it is a mixture of 8 different oils! My skin immediately feels more moisturized after using it. It's super nourishing and not only hydrates, but helps with firmness and the softening of fine lines. In the reviews, people tout this “magic potion” serum for giving allllll the hydration you need, plus super glowy skin!

You can use this as a serum/moisturizer combo or you can even use it under a moisturizer if you tend to be more dry! Just be sure to shake the bottle well to incorporate the two layers of ingredients, which is PERFECT for the 2 for $45 deal.

Drink of H2O

Oh man, this moisturizer from tarte is INSANE!! It has squalene, hyaluronic acid and marine plants to deliver a super hydrating, anti-aging kick of moisture guaranteed to last all day or night. I love a product I can use in the morning or evening! There are 2700 almost perfect reviews for this moisturizer, one even saying that it's “magic and wonderful…my skin drinks it in!” This is a tarte skincare product you'll want to keep in your skincare fridge for an extra refreshing experience.

Wink of H2O

This powerful $35 eye cream not only wakes up under eyes immediately with caffeine, but it continues to deliver hydration and anti-aging protection all day. Plus it incorporates marine plants, which we all know reduces fine lines and signs of aging. In addition to offering all the moisture, it also acts as a crease-resistant primer for concealer!

Brazilliance self tanner

I'm loving this brand-new overnight gradual self tanner! I always try to protect my face from the sun with SPF and/or a hat so my body is usually more tan than my face. So I'm always on the look out for a good facial tanner; this type of product is KEY to my tanning routine! I love that this one incorporates suuuuper moisturizing ingredients (hi again, hyaluronic acid!!) to give me overnight hydration and a streak-free tan. I really am AMAZED that after using only this product to tan my face, I have a completely natural looking glow. And at only $29, it's something I'll be keeping in my skincare repertoire for a long time.
