There are so many different skin types that I find skin care posts a little difficult.  I’ve decided to reserve the number of skin related posts I do to only the most important products.  Over the last five months, I’ve refined my skin care regimen and have gone from having oily skin, to having combination skin, to now having normal skin.  I plan on sharing all the products I’m currently using but want to start with Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil.

Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

Maracuja Oil is the second type of oil I introduced to my skin.  The first was cleansing oil and they both have done wonders at purifying my skin.  I use three drops (seriously, that’s it!) of Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil at night after cleansing and before moisturizing.  It provides instant hydration, but does not make my skin greasy.  It also does not create more oil during the day.  If anything, the added hydration cuts down on the oil I was experiencing.

Full of Vitamin C and essential fatty acids, Maracuja Oil (which is actually passion fruit oil) is known for hydration, brightening, toning, firming, and smoothing skin, for its anti-aging properties, and the gentle nature in which it can treat sensitive or acne-prone skin.

That’s a lot of claims for such a simple oil.  I can’t attest to all of them being true because they don’t all apply to my skin type.  I can, however, tell you that my skin went from combination to normal after I introduced it to Maracuja Oil.  I also noticed less cystic acne than previously and find it the only anti-aging treatment I’ve tried to date that doesn’t make my skin over-produce oil again.

Do you use oil for a skin treatment?


Price: $46.00

Availability: Tarte, Sephora

Summary: Perfect for all skin types, Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil hydrates, balances, and clears skin.  It provides anti-aging properties without causing excess oil.  Only needing 3 drops per use, the 1.7oz bottle will last a long time and is well worth the price.
