Ready, Set Glow by Tarte

When the Holiday Season is just around the corner, it’s the best time to treat yourself with some super cute beauty gift sets, minis or exclusive collections. By now all the beauty stores are filled with some amazing sets that offer the best value and product combinations.

Today I’m sharing my love for this super cute Ready, Set Glow kit from Tarte, I purchased at the Sephora store. I absolutely love it and it coasted me $21 (retail value claims to be $49).


This amazing kit includes:

  • lip scrub
  • exfoliating cleanser
  • hydrating boost
  • 4-in-1 marine boosting mist



Lip Scrub – a hypoallergenic, twist-up lip scrub to resurface, condition and protect lips without the mess.

  • Rainforest of the Sea™ complex: a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing and softening skin
  • Sugar: micro-fine granules gently exfoliate surface cells
  • Shea butter: a natural skin emollient that helps retain skin elasticity and protects against degeneration

I am so in love with this scrub! It looks super cute and is so easy to use it. Apply it on your lips and then massage it for a bit and remove with water or damp cloth. It has a mild peppermint scent and a sweet (sugar scrub after all) taste to it and is so gentle yet effective. Lip scrub does a great job exfoliating lips and provides an instant hydration, leaving lips silky smooth and moisturized. It can be used as a lip treatment or to prep lips for the lipstick. Along with the little and pleasant tingling, lips look good and naturally plumped.


Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

  • diatomaceous earth microexfoliants: fossilized sea algae that absorbs surface oil and toxins while acting as a gentle exfoliant

With a clarifying cleansing gel powered by the Rainforest of the Sea™ complex and suspended diatomaceous earth microexfoliants, the vegan friendly formula draws out surface oil and reduces shine, while purifying pores for the deepest clean possible. The hypoallergenic gel stick gently sloughs away dead surface cells and polishes skin as it cleanses to fight dullness and pump up the radiance. Great for all skin types, it can be used on a regular basis without stripping skin’s moisture or left on as a treatment mask to absorb toxins and reveal smooth, sexy, glowing skin. Ideal for the on-the-go gal, this travel friendly cleanser features a targeted, straight-to-skin applicator that can be massaged directly onto the face so you can get dirty and then sparkle clean all in one frxxxtion fix.


This 3-in-1 exfoliator, cleanser and face mask all in one portable, solid-to-suds stick, is fantastic! I had so much fun using it. Applied it with the stick and then massaged it with my fingers. Gentle and pleasant exfoliation. After use skin indeed felt very smooth and had a nice glow to it. I still need to try it as a mask, but I already can tell I will like it. So far, I’m already loving 2 out of 4 products. Great start! After exfoliation, I used Drink Of H2O hydrating boost.


Drink Of H2O hydrating boost – a refreshing, lightweight gel moisturizer to help quench dry, dehydrated skin.

Powered by hyaluronic acid and Tarte’s exclusive Rainforest of the Sea™ antioxidant complex, this cooling gel moisturizer helps restore skin’s natural hydration, while replenishing electrolytes for skin that’s fortified, refreshed and healthier-looking. The lightweight moisturizer sinks into skin, leaving no oily or greasy feel behind, while powerful marine antioxidants help skin defend itself from everyday aggressors. Vegan friendly and hypoallergenic, it also has powerful anti-aging and skin-balancing properties to help boost the appearance of firmness, tone and vitality over time – so all you have to do is “drink up!”

It is indeed a super lightweight and refreshing moisturizer. Absorbs really quick and has a nice gel texture to it. For me it would be the perfect summer moisturizer. For this time of the year I need something a little bit richer. It has a nice scent to it, almost citrus-y. Doesn’t leave skin feeling oily. Overall it is a great product and it’s the perfect size to see if it works for you.

Last but not the lest –

Marine boosting 4-in-1 mist – a 4-in-1 primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist and skin refresher.

  • Rainforest of the Sea™ complex: a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing and softening skin
  • Orange peel oil: helps promote collagen production and reduce puffiness for youthful-looking skin
  • Sea water: provides intense hydration and minerals to quench and nourish skin
  • Lentil seed extract: helps minimize the appearance of pores
  • Caffeine: helps improve microcirculation while reducing the appearance of redness and puffiness
  • Coconut oil: antioxidant-rich oil that helps smooth and nourish skin
  • Lavender oil: soothes and tones skin

Give skin a powerful pick-me-up with this 4-in-1 complexion booster to help restore skin’s natural radiance and hydration. The refreshing setting spray extends the wear of makeup for 12 hours, while acting as a hydrating mist and primer to help to help minimize the appearance of pores, redness and puffiness. Hypoallergenic and vegan friendly, it features tarte’s antioxidant-packed Rainforest of the Sea™ complex to help shield skin from daily aggressors. You can also apply a few mists throughout the day to quench dry skin and improve the appearance of firmness over time.

As you can see, it has a lot of amazing benefits. I almost feel like I’m not using it to its  full potential. I mostly use it as a facial mist/ hydrating mist and really love it. It’s has a very refreshing scent to it and it feels really nice.

I use it few times a day, to give my face a much needed “slap” of freshness”.

This set is really amazing and most importantly affordable! I’m thinking about getting another one for myself and possibly couple more for gifts.


Let me know your thoughts on it – have you tried any of these products? Will you? Maybe you have other great Holiday releases you think are amazing and holds a great value? Do share.

  2. Tarte really knows how to make their products so appealing! I cant believe all of that was only $21. I think I want to try that frixxxtion stick, it looks like a glue stick lol but ive been looking for something to illuminate my face a little more esp with all this cold air, i feel like my skin is looking dry and bleak! do they sell these products separately?

    xo, JJ
