Comments about Tarte Maracuja Oil:

I tried this product out for 2 months and i saw no difference or improvement of my skin. The only thing i did notice was it moisturized around my nose where i had dryness. I had very big expectations but highly disappointed. Definitely will not repurchase or recommend.

    Comments about Tarte Maracuja Oil:

    I got a sample of the maracuja oil at Ulta during a promotion. I started to apply it every night before I went to bed as it was winter and I wanted to keep my skin moisturized. I should say a few things before I tell you how it affected my complexion. The first is that I have combination type skin but for the most part its just OILY! I also am very acne prone. I pick at my acne therefore I have unevenness and scarring. I should also say that I started to use this product while pregnant and was very concerned about using a product that would be both safe and effective. Since using Maracuja oil every night before bed my skin has been incredible! I'm not trying to sell you this product just telling you my experience. My skin is softer, more even toned, brighter, and just overall looks better! The very best part though...my acne has been practically NON EXISTENT...which has never happened in my life (I'm 32!). I get compliments all the time on social media and in person. People asking me what I use on my skin to make it look so bright and smooth...Although I try to take good care of my skin in other ways, I feel that the Maracuja oil has A LOT to do with it. I hear all the time that I'm "glowing". I'm halfway through my bottle and already thinking about getting more! GREAT PRODUCT!

          Comments about Tarte Maracuja Oil:

          I was given this product as a gift, since my family and friends know I am a Tarte brand fanatic. At first I was a little unsure because I have combination to oily skin and over moisturizing can lead to a nasty greasy mess. But I decided it was worth a shot. First application I was a bit surprised at how thick it felt going on, being an oil, but it absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling amazingly smooth! I have been using this product nightly for a little over 2 months now and I can feel a difference in the smoothness of my skin, see a change in the brightness, as well as a decreased appearance of dark circles under my eyes. I am not left feeling greasy or gross, but moisturized. I have also seen a decrease in oil production through out the day! Highly impressed with this product and WILL be buying another bottle once I'm out!

            This product was very moisturizing, but it's just too much so for my skin. I used it exactly as directed, and I kept getting deep, cystic acne clusters which I NEVER had prior to using this product. I'm going to use it for my hair instead.

                  I was really hesitant about this product at first, so I bought it in a sample pack, and it is absolutely amazing!!! I have incredibly oily skin and massive pores, so I was really worried about trying it out after reading some reviews, but I noticed results almost immediately. My skin is significantly less oily and I have had severe breakouts on my chin for the past month, but it's looked nearly clear for the past week. Great product, I use it at night and during the day. Will definitely purchase the full size once this runs out.

                    After the first night I used this products, I saw a difference, My face looked bright and smoother the next morning, even after putting my make up on. I noticed some of my redness (from blemishes) was less as well. I love that this product doesn't have a smell and then I isn't super refined, it definitely feels natural and great! I use 3 drops for my face and it goes a LONG way! I bought the travel size, just to try it, but I see myself definitely buying more of it in the future.

                      I previously used the Maracuja oil foundation that was discontinued and have not been able to find anything comparable! The dewy glow it gave was stunning! Can I mix some oil into my foundation to get a dewy/glowy look or is mixing the oil into foundation a bad idea?

                        Not at all! We would recommend you start with the clean slate™ flawless 12-hr brightening primer powered by tarte 12-hour power™ for a dewy finish that will last throughout your day. The antioxidant-rich formula instantly counteracts dullness and brightens skin tone. Combine with the BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer for added hydration and brightness, or mix with one drop of maracuja oil for a more dewy look. We also recommend using the Amazonian clay BB illuminating moisturizer SPF 15 for an all-over radiant and glowing complexion if you're looking for lighter coverage.

                        In order to keep the integrity of the oil, we recommend using within a year after purchase. After opening, we recommend 1-3 months depending on usage.

                        A:

                        All you need is 2-3 drops per application, so the sample size should last you some time! Depending on your skin type, you can use it alone, apply before your moisturizer, or even mix it together with your moisturizer. Oily skin types may prefer to use this product only at night without any additional moisturizer, while dry skin types may prefer to use this product morning and night followed by a moisturizer.

                        Maracuja Oil is formulated for all skin types. It will not emphasize your pores; in fact, it helps skin appear smoother!

                        In a 6 week consumer use study:
                        96% of women saw an overall visible improvement in skin
                        91% of women saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
                        94% of women saw a visible improvement in skin texture

                        The high dose of vitamin C within this formula will help to brighten skin tone for a more radiant complexion. You can apply to the eye area, but take care not to get any product in the eyes to prevent irritation.
