Hello everyone! Here goes another Monday. I hope everyone is getting off to a good start this week. Two weeks ago I purchased the sample size version of Tarte's Maracuja Oil ($46). I swear at this rate, I'm pretty much turning into Tarte's unofficial spokesperson. There really isn't anything Tarte has made that has let me down.
This nutrient-rich oil contains vitamin C and essential fatty acids to hydrate sensitive, dry, and acne prone skin, leaving skin even toned and smooth without a greasy feel. Pure maracuja oil is a hydrating treatment oil known for its anti-aging and healing properties for firmer, brighter, and smoother looking skin, and will not cause breakouts.The lightweight oil is meant to be used as a nighttime replacer for your moisturizer. I've been using it for at least a week now and I have seen improvements in my skin. Tarte says to use 1-2 drops all over your face, but since I have such dry skin 1-2 drops wasn't enough for me. I had to use about 5-8 drops to really get my skin that nice dewy moisturized look. I know you're probably thinking, 8 drops?! That's a lot! The truth is, I have extremely dry skin with eczema, and during the winter my skin is similar to the Sahara desert.
So how does my skin look? It looks brighter, lighter, and my pores appear smaller. I still have redness on my face and the rougher textures of my skin are still there, but overall my skin looks clear, youthful and supple. This is pretty amazing considering I only paid about nine dollars for the small size from Ebay, which will last me at least a few weeks. Also, this is an organic product, which means there is no added fragrance. So, if you're a fan of organic products like me, you'll love that about this oil. However, I do have to warn you, you might smell a bit like Fritos B-B-Q chips. :)
