Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent!
I decided to try this oil out after I started Retin-A. Anyone familiar with using this cream knows you go through about 1-2 months of skin horror before breaking through to the beneficial results. My skin looked like flaky scales.
After the first use, I saw immediate results. Softer, no flakes, smaller pores, LESS OILY SKIN! Go figure with an oil, less in my T zone.
Now I know my skin can handle oils, I will keep using this and add different types to see what my skin likes the best. The downside is the price, a bit expensive. But well worth the results. Oh, plus, try adding a drop or two to your foundation! It really does make you look flawless.
As an FYI, my photo that I included is non filtered, no photoshop or enhancement in any way. And I'm 41
Most Helpful Critical Review I just don't know
So bought this hoping it would help with my skin tone since it claims to even it out and calm it down because of the antioxidants. Well I've been using it for a few days now and my skin is noticeable softer BUT a few issues I have are... It's greasy and my skin is like an oil slick after I apply it. I have to use it at night only. I tried using it on its own but I feel like it didn't really hydrate my skin enough so I've been mixing it with my hydro gel cream and it's less oily now. I just also noticed my lower chin area is breaking out. I use a gycolic face wash which keeps break outs at bay but I think this oil is causing them. It's those under the skin bumps that you can't do anything about. I may try to use it for a few more days to see if it continues. BTW when you first drop it into your hands the smell is awful but once you apply it the smell disappears.
Reviewed by 1151 customers Great oil that doesn't cause me to break out
J_Shave1 from Maryland
I've been using this product for almost a year. Oils have scared me because I have oily skin and can get break outs. But Maracuja Oil is amazing. It makes my skin so balanced. I wake up and my skin feels soft, not oily. No breakouts I feel like its pouring in moisture that I am not able to get from other skin care products or by nutrition/water in take.
Best moisturizing, rejuvenating product!
Tiff from Fairfax, Virginia
I started off by buying the travel size as it was easier on my pockets. But after about 2 years I decided to fully invest in the regular size. I love this oil, I use it at the end of my skin routine after moisturizer and other blemish formulas. It gives my skin a natural immediate glow. My skin has been acne-prone and I always get hormonal acne but this moisturizer in combination with my nightly routine truly finishes my skin with the perfect glow and moisture needed. My skin wakes up feeling refreshed and I know you're ideally supposed to wash your face in the morning but the natural glow this oil gives when you wake up doesn't require that. I also use this under my foundation in combination with a cheap Elf primer and it creates the perfect canvas to work on. Highly recommend adding this to your routine. Expensive, but 3 drops a night go a long way. I rub it into my eyelashes and eyebrows as it is supposed to help moisturize those too. Although I do not notice a difference in my hair, it doesn't hurt. I am 21 and plan on using this until it fails me.
WAY TOO HEAVY AND OILY
Tristan from Orange County
I've used this daily for 6 months, didn't wanna throw it away cus I bought the full size and it is not cheap. It is super heavy and doesn't absorb at all. I apply 2-3 drops at night after toning and it just sits on top of my skin forever. I think all of it just gets on my pillow really. Skin is hydrated in the morning but nothing is significant and worth the money.
Great under makeup
Lits12 from Washington
I have combination skin. Sometimes it's super dry and flakey. Sometimes it's oily. I have acne prone skin. I also have really sensitive skin. I have acne scars and texture. This oil is amazing. I feel like my skin quickly absorbs it which I love. It doesn't feel sticky. It makes my skin feel and look sooo good. I've been using this on and off for a few years. But I've been using it religiously now for the past 11 months or so. I use it mornings, nights and sometimes a third time during the day if I feel like my skin needs extra hydration. I definitely recommend this product! The big bottle is worth the price in my opinion
Already helping my acne scars from HS
Becca from Tempe, AZ
I love Tarte don't get me wrong...but I'm always hesitant about facial products because I have oily/combo skin. I have tried a lot of products but always ask how they are with oily skin.
I have gotten multiple Tiny travel size samples of this oil but was scare of oil with my skin...never tried it. Come to find out, I should have been moisturizing, oils included. Started putting this oil around my eyes after I found out I was allergic to Mancoon cats..they would get dry a lot, especially after getting my lashes done.
Also, have hella bad under eyes circle (imo). Tried it on my under eyes & saw a review that said it helps cancel scars. I have a patch of them on my right cheek (not terrible but i notice it). I put oil on it last night and literally noticed a difference after ONE NIGHT.
I would post a before/after pic if I had one & trust me, I wouldn't be writing this post if I wasn't fr. Helped my acne scars after one night & I hope it can do the same with my under eyes soon! But, no doubt this is another work of art from Tarte!
Have ordered again
Theresa from OH
The best oil ever!
katia from san diego
i love this oil. i have extremelyyy dry skin that is always peeling and moisturizer isnt enough. every night i put 3 drops of this across my face after lotion and it makes my skin feel so good in the morning and hydrates really well. i literally stopped peeling. if you're struggling with dry skin try this!!
I would but this product again
Luckylo from Sarasota,Florida
use to moisturize very dry skin which it does but I need to wait 5-10 minutes for the oil to be absorbed before I can put on my makeup
Sadie from Henderson NV
Where to start. I have really dry skin and this face oil didnt help at all with hydration. I tried it for a few weeks because you should with any new product and it clogged my pores, felt heavy, and had an awfully strong odor. Not to mention the Ridiculous Price! The absolute biggest waste of my money! I now use serums from ordinary and they have amazing ones for dry skin and cheap.
Never ever again!
KK from Los Angeles, CA
This was the worst purchase I ever made. I wanted to give this face oil the benefit of the doubt so I used it for 4 months straight. My skin went from perfect to acne and clogged pores everywhere. Tons of tiny white filled bumps along my jawline and my cheeks. Recently just stopped using a few weeks ago and switched to Belif and my skin has already cleared up by 50%. So disappointed. It destroyed my skin.
I love this brought
Nat from Fontana
I love it this is the second times I buy it and it's improved my skin so much. When I stopped using it I broke out. Honestly would recommend this but you have to be consistent with it. I use it every morning and apply the oil, lotion, and then my makeup routine. In the night I put a few drops on my face and with my two hands blend it all around my face. It feels so smooth and nice l.
Fountain of Youth in a Bottle!
DivineUno from Kentucky
I use this product two times every day. Once after my morning shower and once after washing my face in the evening before bed. It only takes a couple drops each time and it absorbs quickly. This is the fountain of youth in a bottle. My skin looks better now than it did when I was 30.
Natural, comes from a plant, good for anti-aging
Jocelin from Menifee, CA
I tried this oil first as a travel size and it's very moisturizing. I apply it at the end after my serum and moisturizer. I like to use it more to go sleep because I feel like it gives more of an affect at night to your skin.
Also, I know a lot of people hear are complaining about the smell. So, yes, the smell isn't the best, but honestly, added fragrances in oils or moisturizers are not good for your skin. So, better safe than sorry.
Plus, Maracuja is known for its hydrating and firming if the skin affect. I like to use it more around the eyes- to prevent wrinkles and on my neck and chest- I feel like this area shows more aging through time.
Soooo I use this on my hair ?
S from Ny
AND MY HAIR LOVES IT
zee from Washington
it smells HORRIBLE! a scent that shouldn't be on your face near your nose . leaves a VERY oily residue . someone on here said it smells like frying oil and I think thats on point to how it smells . wouldn't buy again
Sensitive Skin Safe
Patty from GA
Let me just start out my saying I used this stuff while I was using Proactive (I'm off of it now) and I think my face would have fallen off without it. It added so much hydration to my skin and corrected most of my dryness (I had one really bad patch but it definitely still helped). I feel like it also helped with the micro tears I got from the Proactive and lessened the long term damage. I have lines on my forehead that look a lot less noticeable now too. I still use it now and I can safely say it doesn't clog my pores. I highly recommend if you are mid 20s and want to start introducing anti aging into your routine. The big bottle will last you forever and the travel size will last you a good bit too.
Not Worth the Scent
cecile from New Orleans
I received a sample of this in an Ulta skincare gift with purchase. While I am sure the oil does have its benefits, I can't get passed the smell to use it often enough to know. It's very thick, so I'd rather rub it into my cuticles or maybe dry elbows than on my face where the staying power is welcomed and the scent is not as noticeable. I have a full sized bottle of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery oil and it smells MUCH better. It is also easier to apply than this is. To each his own, but this isn't for me.
Diana from Seattle
Absolutely in love! I have normal to dry skin and this does the trick for extra moisture. It absorbs very well into my skin. I can't get enough, it's my second bottle!
Don't care for it at all
Angie from CA
I do not like this for my fave at all. It is greasy and just smells horrible. I have a big bottle and use it here and there for my cuticles and dry patches only because I don't want it to go to waste. I try and put it on my boyfriends head after he shaves just to use it up lol but he hardly ever lets me because it smells so bad lol
I loovvvve this oil!
Darcie from Surprise ,AZ
I use this this oil every day. I am normal to dry skin. I have rosacea and I tone with witch hazel then put the maracuja oil on after. It hydrates and feel wonderful. It absorbs quickly . I have heard that people with oily skin use it and it decreases the over oily-ness of the skin. It's weird I know. But I think of it as an anecdote. They use snake poison to make snake bite anecdotes. Maybe it's the same with this oil. It is great stuff and I encourage any one to use this. It changes the texture to my skin. I can have bumpy red skin and it changes that completely. Love this stuff!
A must have ...
Alyssa from Boston
I first tried to travel size of this oil and fell in love. I bought the bigger bottle and use it every day! I was hesitant at first because I have oily skin. This helps moisturize, reduce pimples and leaves you glowing. I usually sleep with it on or I'll mix it with my foundation for a nice glow!
Dani from Michigan
I tap a half a drop on eye are before night eye cream. It has made a world of difference in the texture of my skin, brightened my dark circles and smooths our small lines. Will never go without this little power house. Also great for cuticles, dry patches, damaged hair etc
Katt from Seattle
I use this after all of my other products at night to lock in every drop of moisture. In the morning my skin is still soft n moisturized
Yes I would buy this again
Sarabara from Lake Charles louisiana
I use it for my spot ends
River from Tumon, GU
This wasn't my first face oil. I ordered it because it was recommended by a lot of reviewers since it was less expensive (weight-to-cost ratio) than Beauty Bakerie. When I received what was supposed to be a brand-new bottle, it smelled rancid -- like fryer oil -- and it didn't absorb well into my skin; it floated on top. I'll stick with Beauty Bakerie's Wake & Bake face oil. It costs a bit more, but at least I used up the whole bottle. I used Tarte 2 or 3 times before deciding it wasn't for me. That was a waste of money.
