If you're new to the "facial oil" trend, you should know that all oils are not created equal - and when the formula is right, they can truly be amazing to hydrate, soften and tone skin.
Tart's Maracuja oil is rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids to hydrate sensitive, dry, and even acne prone skin. It leaves the complexion more even toned and smooth without a greasy feel.
Combined with their new beautiful and unique Collector's Edition Super Size packaging, and this may just become one of your favorite multi-purpose skin care products.
The oil is only very mildly scented (a bit of a "nutty" fragrance) and it dissipates quickly. The dropper inside the cap allowed me to control the among of oil I applied (I usually used 4 drops, which means I'll have this bottle for a LONG time).
I usually used it at night (often in combination with their equally amazing tarte Spring Collector's Edition Maracuja C- Brighter Eye Treatment). After warming the oil up in my hands I would apply to my face and neck in a "pressing/patting" motion. This oil evaporated almost instantly and yet left my skin amazingly soft and hydrated. As a matter of fact, no matter how dry/cold it was at night this winter, my skin was soft and glowing in the morning.
More amazingly this oil does not clog pores, or irritate more oily skin. As a matter of fact, this oil can be used to calm down blemishes. The oil did not feel heavy or sticky after application and as a matter of fact, it literally felt weightless and smooth.
So other uses for the oil are for healing scars, adding to dry, flaky lips, and red irritated patches of skin like around the nose or on cheeks, and applying to cuticles. I also liked adding a touch to my lashes at night to make them soft and glossy in the morning. - RLB
