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.

I've never done a follow up review before but I just find it unacceptable that this huge bottle of oil it goes rancid so quickly. It was awful to begin with but I was using it on my legs at night on occasion as it's not really up to par for the face and the last time I reached for it it was straight up rancid, smelled sour. Save your money buy real skin care.
Please Bring Back The Original

I picked up more of this oil because it's been my go to for years when I need a bit more moisture. I hadn't gotten any for a few months, so I was surprised when I opened the bottles and it smelled like citrus. Then I looked at the box. There are so many extra ingredients now I couldn't even believe it. I'm so disappointed. The fact that they probably did this because people were complaining about the smell of the oil infuriates me. There will be times where the oil isn't the best smelling, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Now there's all these other oils in it that aren't necessary and other fillers that don't need to be there that ruined a perfectly good product. I won't buy this again until they bring the old formula back.
Amber from Cincinnati
Bought this because I was looking for a new facial oil.. the first week I used it, it made me break out around my nose/nostrils with little red bumps & irritation. It wasn't awful so I figured I'd keep using it, let my skin get familiar to it.. and now I actually like this oil. No more bumps and my skin is super soft, smooth and more firm. My make up wears alot better. I just needed to give it time with my skin for it to get better. It did! Got the travel size. Considering buying full size product once finished.
Never again until they return to the original maracuja oil
joyrunner from SC
I am shocked & disappointed that you have junked up maracuja oil with questionable filler ingredients. Went to reorder but checked out reviews first. I have used this oil for years due to the simplicity of ingredients and excellent performance. Is it all about the money now? Increase the price, don't lower product & company standards! I will now have to look for a new face oil and a new line that doesn't compromise quality and health.
This oil is a staple in my beauty rotation.
Laura from Shreveport, Louisiana
Best used during the night time. I use this particular oil for my face. I moisturizes my face and neck after I wash and exfoliate my face. You can also use this product all over your body. It's a staple in my beauty rotinue.
Love this oil and I have oily skin
Rosita from Fayetteville
I purchased this during the 20 days of beauty and I would have to say I had a great choice. I have oily and acne skin. I apply it at night before bed and after my nightly routine every other night and love how brighter and firmer my skin has gotten.
Mari from Austin Texas
I had spots from the sun and using this product has cleared my face.
Love it. Can't live without it!
Jen from KC
This was recommended to me because I mentioned I had oil but also dry skin. I am SO glad I tried it. Definitely can't live without it.
The smell isn't my favorite BUT I love the benefits of it. I don't feel like it's too greasy and heavy.
Why change a good thing?!
Heidi from Tennessee
I have been using this for years. I cannot believe they changed it. It used to have two ingredients, now it has several. Two ingredients, grapefruit and rosemary extract make it stink and irritate my skin. The addition of another carrier oil makes it less dry and more greasy. I am shocked they would change such a loved oil-its so cheap now.
Andrea from Rhode island
I used to use this product and loved it...now they changed the formula. Will not be purchasing anymore!!
rosecoloredgirl0406 from Earth
This formula has been quietly changed at the risk of the consumer. I have been using the Maracuja Oil since it launched and was always happy with it, until recently. I had purchased a bottle of this oil and in using it I noticed an odd scent-it didnt feel the same, and my face looked incredibly dull and textured which was the exact opposite of what it had always done for me. I started getting terrible headaches, feeling dizzy and couldnt figure out what was wrong. I decided to look it up and sure enough- ROSEMARY AND GRAPEFRUIT extracts (along with many other fillers) have been added to the formula. rosemary and grapefruit are KNOWN triggers for seizures and thats something i always look out for- but why would I suspect a product I had used for years would change the formula without any notice to their consumers? This was incredibly irresponsible of the company and I have suffered for it. Please be careful and research what oil additives are being placed in your products. Always ALWAYS check.
Kate from Clermont, FL
I loved this product for years until the formula changed to something completely different. It used to feel high quality, natural, and nice on my skin. I just felt good using it. Now it feels thin, cheap, and clearly has additives. I'm sure customers would have been okay with paying a little more rather than the formula changing. Disappointed :(
FORMULA CHANGED. Not happy
Jenny from NY
I am so upset they changed the formula. This has been my favorite oil for over 2 years and now it has a citrus rather than woodsy smell. I didn't know until I received & just went to put it on... read other reviews saying it causes breakouts now. Returning.. very upset about the changes.
Love from Las Vegas
I could tell that they changed the formula in the oil but it is honestly way better and the nice thing is my face doesn't smell like fires like the old formula did lol and I haven't broken out at all.
may from San Jose, CA
I bought this product because my face had been really dry and flaky lately, so I figured my moisturizer wasn't doing the best job retaining the hydration. Instead of buying a new moisturizer, since I do like my current one, I decided to buy a facial oil. This oil does a good job moisturizing my skin. After my moisturizer, I spritz my face with rose water to make sure my face is hydrated, patting it into my skin. Immediately after, I apply two drops on my face to lock in the hydration. I only use this at night, because it's a bit much in the day time, and my face ends up being too oily (it is an oil after all!).
Product changed!!! Not good!
DC from San Francisco
I can't believe tarte changed the formula. It smells citrus-y and it's terrible. Irritating for the skin and it's more watery than the older formula. They added more ingredients to it now probably so its cheaper to make while using cheap ingredients. Very unfortunate because I've been loyal to tarte for so many years especially with the maracula oil. I'll have to rethink about my other purchases like the under eye cream and lotions. Bring back the old formula!!!!
Raina from Washington
This use to be my favorite. I am going to have to find a new face oil. They changed the oil. It now has essential oils and fillers, to make it easier and cheaper to produce.
Please go back to the old formula!
Disappointed in Tarte from USA
This used to be the best facial oil that I've ever used, but they changed the formula. The new formula is terrible! It irritates my skin.
Why change a great thing? probably to save $ >:(
Mary from Cape Cod, MA
I've used this happily for 8 years and recently noticed it has been irritating. I had no idea other ingredients have been added;( Off to find another pure brand. Really a shame.
Please go back to original!
Marie from Chicago, IL
This used to be just oil! Now it has a bunch of other stuff in it. Please go back to the original. Why would you change it? Will be looking at other brands that just have one ingredient.
Victoria1989 from Corpus Christi, TX
There are so many oils on the market these days, and selecting one for purchase can be overwhelming. I went with this one on a whim, as it was half off during the Ulta's skin event. I do not regret this buy. I use the oil every night prior to applying my serum and moisturizer. I also use it during the day, mixed with my foundation. It creates a gorgeous, youthful glow. I had a baby two months ago, and my skin has been so dry throughout my entire pregnancy, and to this day. This oil brings my skin back to life. I also put a few drops into the palms of my hands, rub them together, and distribute it through my hair. It smells lovely!
JL from KS
I have dry eczema skin and this oil has helped and improved not only the moisture but the glow to my skin. I like to mix it with my lotion (osea anti aging balm) or use on its own in really dry spots. It doesn't irritate and goes on amazing. It absorbs nice don't feel greasy and the scent isn't strong so doesn't bother me. I could not use it in my hair though made my ends too weighed down but I have thin very fine hair. Overall love it.
Page from Houston
NOOO! After years of loving this product, tarte has CHANGED the formula and has gone CHEAP. This oil USE to be the BEST... and now I have the worst breakouts of my life. I had no idea that they added in a bunch of fillers to this product and it caused major irritation. It use to only have passion fruit seed oil in it.. now it has a bunch of other ingredients. THIS SUCKS.
KattG from Riverside, CA
I have oily skin so I usually stay far away from oils. But after reading reviews for this and finding it on sale, I decided to try it. This stuff is amazing! I only use it at night because it needs a lot of time to absorb into my skin. Its also the last product I apply at night. But when I wake up in the morning, my skin is balanced and smooth, and not oily at all. My complexion is also more even. I highly recommend this oil, just be sure to take the time to find the best ways and times to use it based on your skin type. some people can wear this during the day, but I can't because my skin doesn't absorb it quick enough. Don't assume you can't use it just because it takes time to soak into the skin, use it at night.
Amazing results for oily skin
Rosita from North Carolina
I am very prone to acne and my skin is extremely sensitive. I purchased this to help me smooth my acne scars and moisturize my skin at night. (All due to the Mirana)
I have used this for one week and already love it. I have recently started using this during the day by mixing it with my foundation.... or just plain. I have seen a difference in a natural glow in my skin.
