Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil | The Review

Tarte has been one of my favourite cosmetic brands from the first time I stepped inside a Sephora – we’re talking at 14 or so – and they have never let me down. It’s been really nice to see them receiving so much love after their UK release and I wanted to share the one product that has wowed me the most.

Housed in a gorgeous tinted glass bottle with a bamboo stopper, the Tarte Maracuja Oil is unique to the world of facial oils, it is made from the Maracuja fruit known as the “pure miracle” that is grown and harvested in the Amazon – of course. The Oil itself is 100% pure, undiluted, and hand pressed and completely free from parabens, chemicals and preservatives. The main purpose is to restore balance in the skin’s natural recovery process with the inclusion of essential fatty acids to rebuild and repair skin -improving elasticity, tone and texture – and pure Vitamin C for brightness. It offers intense instant hydration that will soothe even the most dehydrated skin and it sinks in quickly to prevent leaving oil on the surface.

This miracle oil has been a staple in my skincare routine for about a year and it has completely changed my skin. From the very beginning, it didn’t take long to notice that my redness and facial eczema had calmed, my breakouts had all but stopped and my skin was absolutely glowing. I was receiving compliments left and right and it was all because of this oil. Adding that extra bit of hydration seemed to make all the difference, and I cannot imagine my routine without it. I apply about 3 drops at night after using my moisturiser, I simply press it into the skin and let it soak in while I sleep. When I wake up, my skin is plump, smooth and soft to the touch.

If you haven’t tried a facial oil it can be intimidating to consider putting oil onto your skin. Whether you have oily skin or not you can benefit from the use of an oil because it the purest form of hydration and hydrated skin will not break out as often. I can not recommend that Tarte Maracuja Oil enough and I think it is a great choice for everyone whether you have tried an oil or not.

      It really is so lovely! It's so much lighter than other oils but so much more effective!
