Tarte Maracuja Oil Review: My impressions

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review

The Tarte Maracuja Oil is very light on skin. As I have oily skin and not a very fun of oils, I applied just little bit of the product, but this one worked well on my skin. As I did a little facial massage, I noticed the product spreads easily and skin absorbed it well. Also,  I didn’t feel my skin was greasy.

As I kept using it on the next days, I did not have any pin points coming up, I say this because sometimes I get pin points when apply oil on my skin but was not the case. I also applied on the lashes, but I cannot say if it made any difference on the lashes.

I have also tried the tarte maracuja on the hair, but I applied it only on the ends. I noticed improvements and will definitely use it more often for my ends well.

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review Cons

  • Some people reported that it will make skin softer but not moisturised
  • Do not apply too much otherwise skin greasy. In my case it was not greasy because I applied just a little bit of the product, less than what was recommended.


Overall is a great product. It costs € 49 Euros but as the products has so many uses, you can feel like it is a fair price. I used on my bed time routine, hands, hair, lips and definitely recommend it.
