Maracuja Oil

If there’s one thing I love more than makeup, it’s skin care. I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times – good makeup starts with good skin – I know, but it’s true. One of my favorite skin care gems is Tarte’s Maracuja Oil.

In my opinion, many times when cosmetic companies dip their feet into skin care, it’s nothing special. Tarte stuck with their natural ways and made a 100% organic oil which I now think of as one of their best products. Maracuja oil comes from the passion fruit and is super rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin C. You can use it morning and night but it is way too hot here in New York to be putting oil on my face in the morning. So at night after I tone with my First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, I drop out about 3 or 4 drops and gently press this into my skin. Not rubbing, just pressing. I love that you can take this all that way around the eyes to give that area some extra hydration as well. The best part about it is that it sinks in right away and never leaves me feeling like a greasy mess (I‘m looking at you, argan oil). When I wake up in the morning my skin feels hydrated and actually looks brighter. It also works for all skin types so whether you’re oily, dry, acneic, or worried about wrinkles, this fits the bill.  Bonus tip – in a pinch it removes makeup really well!

  • I’m such a dork- I have a sample size of this, but I have SOO many other sample sizes of different oils, I just haven’t worked my way to this one yet! Really need to try it out one of these days though- especially since you mentioned the vitamin C and my skin really reacts well to that. Great post!

    • You should definitely try this one next! I’m the same way with going through sample sizes!
