tarte 100 Percent Pure Cold Pressed Maracuja Oil
A JEWEL OF A FIND
FOUND A SAMPLE BOTTLE OF THIS OIL IN MY BEAUTY DRAWER . HAVE BEEN USING ARGON OIL BUT UPON USING THIS AGAIN I FIND MARACUJA OIL TO BE MUCH RICHER AND MORE EFFECTIVE ! IM SWITCHING !
Simple and Effective
I was looking for a way to simplify my skin routine and also save a few bucks. I have been using Philosophy, but tired of all the different products to do different things (like all skin care lines) and the expense. I decided to try this (and Josie Maran's argon oil) and I am impressed. Both oils are good but after a week of use, the majacuja oil may be coming out on top, particularly for my face. It does have a very faint, nutty odor, but that disappears after the product is absorbed, which is very quickly. I like that with both the maracuja oil and the argon oil the moisturizing properties last until I wash my face. I also use them on my neck and chest and there is a noticeable difference in appearance (for the better). I use both oils alone and mixed with other products (like tinted moisturizers). I also use them on my lips, on my eyes, and a touch on my hair when it looks dry. This stuff is also great to sooth skin that has received too much sun. I think it is economical because only a few drops are needed.
My skin type: very sensitive and extremely dry
tarte's Maracuja Oil is crazy moisturizing. More than 3 drops is seriously overkill. I usually layer this on top of Philosophy's Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin moisturizer. Because I do, it looks a tad greasy, but I wake up the next day with extremely hydrated, soft, and supple skin. If I use it on it's own, it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy shine at all. I'm a little disappointed that this product can only be used at night (as stressed by tarte) because I'd love to use this as a spot treatment on my dry areas during the day. However, tarte's oil does keep my face moisturized enough so that I don't need an oil during the day time.
In addition to tarte's Maracuja Oil, I have Josie Maran's Argan Oil Original, Argan Oil Light, and Milk and Fresh's Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil. Here are what these oils do for me:
- Maracuja oil: moisturized (no more flakes, yay!), brightened my skin tone, easily absorbed by skin, gave my skin a healthy glow, skin is a tad clearer. Would recommend to anyone in need of a lightweight but extremely moisturizing product and anyone who wants a healthy glow
- Argan oil original: absorbs easily, heavy/thick, moisturizes. Would recommend to anyone who wants extreme moisturizing at night
- Argan oil light: takes a bit longer to absorb, light but still greasy, moisturizes
- Milk: absorbs easily, leaves a greasy finish, moisturizes. Would recommend to anyone who wants extreme moisturizing at night and wants "spot moisturizing" during day
- Seaberry oil: moisturizes, easily absorbs, brightens and gives health glow. Would recommend to anyone who wants extreme moisturizing night or day and to anyone who wants a healthy glow.
I bought this quite a while ago and didn't use it much till after last winter. I have incredibly sensitive skin so I didn't give it too much thought, till I had no choice. My skin looked old, wrinkly and dry. Well, I pulled it out and started using it. I am almost 68 years old and lately I've gotten comments about the skin around my eyes mostly. Now I do not have any wrinkles cause the oil just soaked right in. I had terrible age lines around my lips. Those are just about gone, too. I'm proud of having beautiful skin at my age without the help of plastics and chemicals. My skin looks better that women 20 and 30 years younger than I.
I plan on using this for a very long time. It soaks right in and isn't heavy looking or feeling. Thanks, Tarte!
Once again, unfortunately disappointed by another Tarte purchase. Did absolutely nothing for my skin except leave it extremely dry the next morning when I woke up and caused me to breakout. I also wanted to comment on the packaging. Honestly-- I'm not one for elaborate packaging, sure the bottle is pretty, but all I really care about is if the money I'm spending on a product is worth it in the results I achieve. I didn't think this product was good and I also think it could be cheaper if they didn't spend so much on making the packaging so grand.
Irritated my Skin, Going back to Argan
My skin is sensitive. I used this without problems for almost 3 weeks, then my skin could no longer tolerate it. Going back to Argan Oil, have used that for years without any problems. Argan Oil is a 10 star product, this is a zero. But, nice packing.
Skin so Soft
I love this Tarte Oil, sinks right into your skin and it is so soft. I;ve tried Argon and feel that this is much lighter on my skin
Where do I begin! I am 36 with acne prone skin. I have also been struggling with large pores and dry patches. I have been using this oil now for about a month. My acne has disappeared almost completely. I do on occasion get a pimple around my hairline and when I do I put some of this oil on it at night and it is smaller with much less redness by morning. I usually struggle for weeks with pimples and now its gone in about 3 days. My pores have shrunken. My skin is brighter and more hydrated. I use this oil now in replacement of all creams day or night now. I will say that I use this oil in combination with my Purity Made Simple and my Clarisonic. I have oily skin. And that is what makes this oil so spectacular to me. This oil does not make me more oily. I feel like my skin has become less oily if that is possible and more even and soft and smooth. I will never go back to any other moisturizer. This is my little miracle in a bottle. Love it!
my acne cure
I have always had bad skin. This product is my miracle. My pores are becoming smaller, scars are fading, has not caused any more breakouts. I had a huge bumb under my skin, applied a small amount of maracuja oil b4 bed. Woke up the bump was gone could not believe. Y did it take me so long to find?
I got this in the 8 piece Beauty Testtube a few shipments ago (I'm on A-D). I used it & after the 1st week I could see a noticable difference in pore size. I use this as you would for a nightime regimen & then moisturize over it. So glad I added this with my moisturizer. Great product!
This oil has helped my dull flakey appearance! I've tried so many ( miracle) products before costing so much more that did nothing. This has brightened my face and helped the flakiness, I am impressed! I have sensitive skin also and this hasn't caused any break outs either! Thanks so much
OMG AND THEN SOME!
I purchased this oil a long time ago, but didn't start using it until about a month ago. Boy was I a fool for waiting! This oil has cleared up hard white bumps on my skin and diminished my pores like nothing else has ever done. For me, it is my miracle product. I am 66 years young and thanks to Maracuja oil, my skin is gorgeous. It doesn't make my skin oily, but leaves it as soft as a baby's bottom. I like other Tarte products, but this one is my favorite. Try it, you won't be sorry-:).
