I received a sample of Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer during a Sephora trip. This moisturizer is a lightweight gel that is water based. It hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid and Tarte’s exclusive antioxidant complex.
The container features a metallic gold cover. Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea products come in whimsical packages. The packages feature blue, purple, and aqua designs. This design is fun and pleasing to the eye. Each sample-sized jar is lightweight.
This moisturizer is a cooling gel. It absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. The gel has a thick texture. When I first tested this product, I was unsure of how it would feel on my skin. When I began using the moisturizer it felt mildly sticky . Once the product adjusts to your skin type this feeling disappears. To my surprise, it did not leave a residue and dried within a second. I enjoy the light lavender scent. It offers a light hydration to prime the skin for makeup. The moisturizer contains water and sea-salt extracts to replenish moisture in the skin. It does not contain parabens. It is also hyperallergenic.
How to use it
Apply to cleansed skin 1-2 times per day. I apply it once in the morning. It is also suitable to use in the morning and night. My skin is drier. I like to use it twice per day to replenish lost moisture.
The full-sized jar retails for $47 at Sephora. This moisturizer is also available as a sample.
