Rainforest of the Sea Skincare

Rainforest of the Sea Skincare

The new Tarte Rainforest of the Sea collection has been on my radar for a while now. The entire collection looks lovely and there are so many products in the range to choose from. During the Sephora VIB sale, I snagged the ‘Make A Splash Hydrating Skin Savers’ kit.


This little kit only costs $12 CAD but is worth $28, so you’re getting a really good deal! I try out a lot of skincare so these little sample sizes are the perfect way to test out my skin’s reaction to them.



There’s nothing worse than dropping a lot of money on skincare that just doesn’t work for you. That’s why I really like when brands release trial sets like this.


In the set you get the Marine Boosting Mist (my personal favourite), the Deep Dive Cleansing Gel, and the Drink H2O Hydrating Boost.


The Marine Boosting Mist was the product I was most excited to try. I love a good a face mist, especially now that the weather is starting to warm up.  This particular mist works as a primer, setting spray, and hydrating mist all in one. Also, it smells like oranges, which I really like!


The Deep Dive Cleansing Gel is ideal for those with dry skin. It makes my skin feel so clean and refreshed. With a slight citrus scent, I have really enjoyed using this one in the mornings. I only got about four applications out of this little bottle, so nowhere near as much as the other two products, but I really enjoyed using it.


The Drink H2O Hydrating Boost is a lightweight gel moisturizer. My skin just drinks it up and feels so hydrated when I use it. It feels cooling on the skin too, so I think it’ll be a nice one to have on hand for the summer months.


All in all I’m really impressed with this little set. I really liked all of the products in it, and definitely need to get that face mist in the full size!


Have you tried anything from the Rainforest of the Sea collection?


  • I heard of this new line by tarte but I haven’t tried it because it sounds more for people with dry skin and I am really oily. The mist seems like it could be interesting for days when I’m not wearing makeup and could use something for my face.

    • Fair enough. I typically have dry skin which is why I think I love it so much. I think you’d like the mist for no makeup days though, it smells incredible!

  • The packaging is gorgeous and I love anything that smells fruity! The mist sounds amazing. Hope you’re having a great week Liz! XO -Kim

  • This is a great discovery set to try out some of Tarte’s new products! Definitely very interested in that mist!

  • I haven’t tried anything from the Rainforest of the Sea collection, but I’m definitely interested in the face mist, and the Drink h2o Hydrating Boost sounds amazing for summer. It’s always hot in Texas haha so anything that helps cool me down is essential

    • It’s always disappointing when that happens! I love getting little sample sizes like these when I can 🙂

    I like to try skincare products too before buying them, I usually ask for a sample to see if the product works or not. I love face mists now that the weather is getting warmer and orange scent is a bonus!


    • I’m a big advocate of getting samples too! It’s important to see how your skin reacts to a certain product before investing in it as good skincare can be quite pricey! I’m definitely going to need to get the full sized mist for summer, it is so lovely!

  • I agree, trial sets are great, and this one was great value for money!
    I’d love to try the mist too!

  • $12 that’s it! I need to get my hands on this, it looks awesome. I’ve been wanting to try out these products and I am in LOVE with the packaging. They sound great!


    • Isn’t it such a good price?! I couldn’t not try it out. I love the packaging too, it’s so pretty!
