Tarte Maracuja Oil


I have been obsessing over facial oils, and Tarte’s Maracuja Oil has made my obsession even stronger. Read on and find out how I use Maracuja oil, and my review of it’s benefits.

Some information about Maracuja Oil:

Pronounced mah-rick-oo-jah and is Portuguese for passion flower. It is said to be a rich source of many skin enhancing substances such as essential fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants. Claims to replenish, brighten, reduce fine lines, and heal skin.


I received a sample size of Tarte’s Maracuja Oil in my December Ipsy Glam Bag. This bottle is 0.23 oz. Sephora sells a 0.5 oz bottle for $15, and a 1.7 oz bottle for $48. I know, it’s pricey!


I love the built in oil dropper because it is mess free, and creates a simpler application. The packaging is beautiful and travel friendly.


How I use Maracuja Oil

I use Maracuja oil twice a day or as needed. I have been suffering from dry skin through this month, and this oil works wonders for dryness. I gently rub the oil all over my face and neck, avoiding my eyes, and then I lightly pat my skin so it can absorb the oil. This oil is not greasy, and does absorb quickly. The bottle instructs you how to use the oil, but I prefer to use as little or as much as I may need. I have used Tarte’s Maracuja Oil daily for three weeks.

Pros: Little to no scent. Non-greasy. Helps soothe dry skin.

Cons: Not for oily skin. It is expensive.
