Review: Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

Now that I am getting older I am more concerned than ever about looking old and wrinkly.

So,while trying to preserve my beauty, I am looking to all natural beauty products, such as my beloved Juice Beauty products.

I, accidentally, stumbled across Tarte’s Pure Marucuja Oil. I saw crazy reviews about this on QVC and they prompted me to do more research.

The brand, Tarte, makes pretty good cosmetics. I have a few in my collection and they are pretty impressive. Tarte’s products are formulated without parabens, phthalates (a toxin used to increase durability and/or softness) and synthetic fragrances. Their packaging is “green" and certain product lines are vegan and cruelty free.

So, from what I have found online, Maracuja is derived from the Amazon, only once a year, by the women of the Amazon, who work for Tarte. It is known also as Passion Fruit.

Here is what it is said to do:

  • It is rich in essential fatty acids, which are known to rebuild and repair your skin.
  • It offers intense hydration for dry skin.
  • Formulated without mineral oil.
  • High doses of pure vitamin C gives you the appearance of brighter skin.

 The greatest thing about this oil is that it only has one ingredient –– cold pressed maracuja oil.

That’s it!

I will say that I was very hesitant about putting oil on my face, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that my face drank this oil up like water after a few minutes.

No sticky feeling.

No funny smells.

Just pure nature. 

Tarte says that the oil can be used on all skin types and will benefit them. I got mine from QVC.COM but I have heard that people are buying them elsewhere, much cheaper. I just advise you to be careful of where you’re purchasing this oil.

Make sure you are getting the real thing!

Retail: $46 (

Use at night in place of your usual serum and/or moisturizer. The special dosage dropper chosen for this bottle measures the perfect amount of oil every time. Warm the oil in the palm of your hands and gently massage into face.
