Tarte Maracuja Oil Review: Benefits & How to use it

Tarte maracuja oil review: Today, we are debating a facial oil that should be ideal for acne-prone skin.

If you have acne-prone skin like me, you will probably be a little skeptical about adhering to oils because you know the effects are not significant on the skin, but this one is supposed to work just fine in these situations.

Did you ever hear about maracuja oil by Tarte?

People are getting crazy about it, and we will know why! But first, let’s talk a bit about the benefits of maracuja oil and why it is a good idea to use it!

What Is Maracuja Oil?

If you still don’t know, maracuja oil is sourced from the seeds of the passion fruit and has become a trend in skincare. It is a rich source of fatty acids, and has vitamin E and carotenoids, for healthier skin, hair, and lashes.

The best maracuja oils (in fact all oils) work better if cold-pressed and their use in skincare will definitely help your skin to be moisturized. Maracuja Oil is a great ally for soothing dry and also acne-prone skin. But many people who suffer from oily skin have reported to love it, so it is definitely worth trying.

Maracuja is also great for hair. A few benefits of maracuja oil for your hair include hair strengthening and prevention from splitting and breaking.

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review: What Do They Claim

Officially, it will help to balance and nourish all skin types including oily and acne-prone skin. They make it clear that their maracuja oil will absorb quickly on the skin, and will not leave it feeling greasy. It is cold-pressed and rich in vitamin C and fatty acids.

Tarte claims that its Maracuja Oil is a vegan skincare product extracted from the maracuja seeds and has rejuvenation anti-aging actives, toned brighter skin, and instant hydration. According to them, the result is a “firmer, brighter & smoother looking skin”.

How to Use It:

This oil is recommended to be applied at night because the vitamin C can break down when exposed to light. One way to use it is to clean your face, dry it, moisturize and finalize with the oil. But you can also mix it with other skincare products and makeup.

  • After washing your face and neck, apply a few drops onto dry skin
  • Mix a few drops on other skincare products like moisturizers and even on makeup like foundations

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review: My impressions

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review

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

As I kept using it for the next few days, I did not have any pinpoints coming up, I say this because sometimes I get pinpoints when applying oil to my skin but that was not the case. I also applied it 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 Pos

  • Smell is Great
  • Did not leave my skin greasy
  • Absorbed well
  • I can use it on skin, nails, hair, and lips all over!
  • Leaves skin softer

Tarte Maracuja Oil Review Cons

  • Some people reported that it will make skin softer but not moisturized
  • Do not apply too much otherwise skin is 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 product has so many uses, you can feel like it is a fair price. I used it on my bedtime routine, hands, hair, and lips, and definitely recommend it.
