Comments about Tarte Maracuja Oil:

Having combination skin I wouldn't have thought this product would work for me but it has and I can't go without it. I've been using it for several months now and noticed my skin is looking and feeling a lot better. A lot less acne, redness and skin is rarely ever dry or excessively oily. Definitely recommend and will continue to use this myself.

    Comments about Tarte Maracuja Oil:

    On one hand, I like this. It *does* moisturize, but it left my skin feeling greasy and I only used like, one drop. It also has a very strong potato chip smell! It's really bizarre. It got rid of my dry skin where I have it, but on my somewhat oily parts of my skin, I got acne right after trying this. I kept going only to get more acne in the same spot. As soon as I stopped using this, the acne went away. I'm NOT acne prone *at all* (at 33, please don't hate me) so I really assume that this product was causing it. I stopped it for a while, went back to my normal beauty routine at bed, had no skin issues. When my skin totally cleared up, I tried this again to give it another go and wham...acne. Again. So yeah. I will only be using this in winter and only when my skin needs the extra boost (and only in certain places on my face!) Basic bottom line, if you're not battling dry skin, I wouldn't recommend this product.

      This stuff is amazing! I have really dry skin in the winter and this pretty much solved that problem. It soaks in very easily and a little goes a long way for sure. It also has helped my eyelashes grow from all the natural oils. Great for the summer too.

        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!

                  A:

                  Maracuja oil is rich in essential fatty acids and brightening vitamin C known to help diminish signs of aging, instantly brighten dull skin, and restore & rebuild dry skin. While we can't be certain of application using other unknown formulas, we can recommend adding a drop or two of Maracuja Oil to Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation for a creamier application, using to tame flyaways, or even soften cuticles.

                  Maracuja oil is Tarte's skinvigorating ingredient that works to hydrate sensitive, dry, and even acne-prone skin! Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin C, maracuja oil is a multi-tasking oil that can replace your nighttime moisturizer for firmer, brighter, smoother-looking skin.

                  A:

                  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.

                  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.

                  This product contains a potent dose of vitamin C to brighten and even skin tone, so it will help to correct dark spots. It is formulated for all skin types including combination skin.

                is it made to use only at night or daytime too? do you use your regular moisturizer along with it or is this a replacement for moisturizer?

                  Though Tarte recommends using this product as a nightly treatment, there is no reason it can't be applied in the morning as well, especially for dry skin types! 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.
