Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skincare | Review

I do not buy high end anything if I can help it. Honestly, I don't have the money to throw down on the good stuff when drugstore works just as well, and sometimes, even better!

But I have to admit that I've developed a love for Tarte's newest collection. I blame it on the foundation. I received it as a gift for my birthday this past year and I haven't looked back. Of course, that also started the issue of loving it so much that I needed to try everything that came out with the name. Big problem.

I don't have everything, but I feel like I got a good range of the products to be able to give you some suggestions in case you were looking for something new.

What the heck is a boosting mist? I've never used such a thing in my skincare routine, so this one has taken some getting used too. I like to use it after I have wiped my makeup off and washed my face with the gel cleanser, which is like heaven to use, by the way! I'm still not sure what it does, but it feels nice. So there's that.

Also, I feel like I should mention that everything in this range smells like fruity pebbles. Not sure why, but it's nostalgic, since I don't eat them anymore.

The lip facial was something that I had been looking forward too. I have such issues with my lips being dry and having dead skin on them that I tend to avoid wearing lipsticks/glosses. And that's no fun when you're a self proclaimed beauty blogger. That's an entire section of makeup I can't try! So this has been helping a lot! I use it a couple minutes before applying any lip product and now they all glide on like a dream.

Technically, this isn't from the Rainforest collection, but I have been wanting to try this for such a long time. I've mentioned before that my dark circles are another bane of my existence, so anything I can find that might help is something I'm willing to try. If I use this once a night, it helps so so much. But don't even think about skipping a night, because those circles will come back with a vengeance!

The eye masks that are pictured in the first image are not something I would try again. Not to say that they didn't work well, but for some reason, I just didn't like the way they felt. When I took them off my skin felt sticky and I had to give it a little water to make that feeling go away. Which kind of defeats the purpose since that washes all the product off!

Ah, the mositurizer. The best part of any skincare routine, in my opinion. I really love this stuff! I've taken a liking to gel anything for some reason. I think I just love how cool it feels on my skin. And this is a really great moisturizer. It's nothing crazy like Clinque's Moisture Surge, but it does it's job very well and I would suggest it if you're looking for something similar.

I'm always changing up my skincare routine. I need to give it some kind of variety because if I don't, my skin becomes used to it and it adapts. Tricky little thing. So you can be sure I'll have another skincare post up in the next few months! LOL.
