This is a lightweight oil that hydrates the skin without that heavy feeling that a layer of oil is sitting on top of your skin.
I don't use it all the time but when I do, I wake up the next morning with soft skin that looks and feels lovely.
It's super expensive though. Why?

I really like this oil a lot. I keep getting sample bottles and roll on's because of the kits I have been getting plus Sephora points:) I am though going to break down and buy the full size as I do notice a difference. I have been using this over 4 months and my skin looks so much better. I have acne scarring well now it's plumped you can't see it. The little bit of laugh lines I had..gone I kid you not. My genetic forehead lines are really diminished and my pores are smaller and skin smoother and more even toned.
Also amazingly no breakouts with this oil. I have used it every night and I have better skin now then when I started using it.
It is expensive but for what it's doing for my skin I will pay the price. I have a good size of it because you don't need a lot. Only a few drops and my whole face is hydrated. I mostly use it at night or when I have dry patches from retin a. It even diminished a broken capillary I had. I am very satisfied and will repurchase again and again. It works for my skin. Give it a try ladies I hope it works as well for you too!

I don't know if I like this or hate it or love it. It's a very strained and unhealthy relationship.
I've used half the bottle and for the price, it's moisturizing but did no wonders for my skin. I absolutely love the bottle and want to keep it for other products once I run out, but....
My husband says My face smells like fried chicken when I use it at night. I notice a faint oil smell, but nothing too offensive or odious as fried chicken!
Takes forever to soak in, but its super moisturizing. I used it for my hair and it definitely made it smoother. I also use it mixed with my SPF in the morning for glowy skin.
Miracle wonder? Hardly. It's another product in line with the skin oil fad lately. However, I use it on a daily basis just to keep my dry spots away and smell irresistible to the obese.

I love this Product. Tried lots of beauty oils and this is by far my favorite. Does not make me break out and it hydrates my skin so well! Will buy this product again and again. (the eye cream is fantastic aswell)

A very good face oil.
Never tried any oil for my face before, but this one is quite gentle and moisturized, not greasy.
I think my face is very dry because of the prescribed facial creams from my dermatologist, but in the morning I mix my moisturizer with two drops of Tarte Maracuja Oil, works very well.
I really like it and seems this big bottle would last a long while.

I have been using this oil for about 2 months now. I am a devoted jojoba oil user but wanted to see if this was something grand I was missing out on. The short answer is no, this isn't worth they hype. This oil is pretty pricey at close to $50. I would like to return it, but I feel that it's a bit unfair and wasteful to return it.. even though I'm sure Sephora wouldn't have any trouble taking it back. *Shrug*. I'll just keep it and use it up.
Pros: Light weight oil, didn't break me out, cute packaging. Traveled with me and bottle didn't leak.
Cons: Not worth the price. Jojoba oil is much more hydrating.. and a much, much, much more inexpensive alternative.

I love this oil! It brightens my face, plumps skin, smoothes wrinkles & just makes my skin
glow! My skin is oily, and this eliminates my midday shine. It just balances my skin. Weird, huh? The bottle is huge and should last several months, making it a good value once you recover from sticker shock. I wish this had been available 15 years ago. I don't know if this will work for all skin types, but it does for mine. I truly believe this is the best moisturizer / anti-aging product I have ever used. I have never been this pleased with a beauty product. Two thumbs WAY up!!
By the way, I am confused about the packaging complaints. It is in a huge, dark purple bottle & elegant looking dropper. Just depress the gold top, the oil drops out & and you never have to touch the dropper's wand. The remaining product is not contaminated.

Packaging - I don't like the roll on the skin- possible bacterial contact with repeat use.
This product smells and really reminds me of Elizabeth Ardens time capsules. I am curious if they are similar ingredients.
Smooth feel, nice smell.
Yeah its fine but not a WOW products.

I love this product, I never put anything on my face at night but I do now. This product really does put back all the nutrients you loose in your face, it makes my face glow and smooth when i wake up!

This is for Tarte 100 percent pure organic maracuja oil. I have been looking for a serum that does not cause break-outs or increase the oiliness of my skin. It has lots of claims about leading to firmer, brighter, smoother skin but the only affect I see is that is is mosturizing and does not cause break-outs, it may do all of those things but they are not obvious to me. It also claims anti-inflammatory benefits, again since I use it during the day, I am not sure about all the claims of extra performance but is does absorb without any greasy or filmy feel.The only issue I have is that if I use it on my eyelids and do not let it absorb my mascara tends to run during the day but this is fixed with powder and applying early in the process of getting ready. I bought from QVC so it came with the concealer to try which is really great and it came in a beautiful box. It costs about $50 but lasts a very long time. I would buy again.

It broke me out, but it absorbed nicely and didn't smell overpowering

My eyes were bright red, itchy, and painful after only a couple uses. Took about 2 weeks (as well as lots of hydroxyzine pills and 2 different kinds of RX eye drops) for my eyes to calm down. It was miserable but think that I had an ocular rosacea flare going at the same time which didn't help the situation. Definitely be wary if you're sensitive with or without ocular rosacea.

Wow! I am 29 years old and have suffered from my embarrassing skin my whole adult life...Combo dry/Oily,big pores and the worst, acne. I've tried all the over the counter products you could imagine for all that has aled my poor skin and to no avail! I was starting to get down about it. Thinking "gay,it'd be nice to have nice clear skin for once before I start having to deal with wrinkles and all that mess." Finally, I stopped wasting my money, I stopped torturing my skin with harsh chemicals and scrubs. I decided to go back to the basics, keep it simple, keep it natural. And this is how I came upon Tartes Pure Marakuja Oil. Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is what I imagine the fountain of youth would be filled with! Not only has it done wonders for my combination dry and overly oily skin, it has reduced the fine lines I had around my eyes made my pores much less noticeable and the best part? My acne, its gone!!!!! How? I am so shocked by this stuff I can't believe it! I had originally received a free sample of it from ultra and conveniently had been looking into "oil cleansing" so after doing a little research to be sure it was free of chemicals, parabens,sulfates and so on, I figured I'd give it a go. I went about the oil cleanse and the first thing I noticed about this stuff was that only a few drops covered my whole face and no smell at all! I figured I'd use it as a moisturizer that night and boy does it just feel good! Smooths right on and soaks right in, no residue and you just feel clean and refreshed. I woke up the next day and went about my usual routine accept this time I decided to substitute my usual moisturizer with the marakuja oil again, just as lovely as ever. By the end of that day I had already felt and seen tremendous results from this stuff. I woke up and my skin was glowing! Half way through that day I noticed my face was not its usual greasy self and my acne was not as red and irritated. The dry spots I did have were nowhere to be seen and my skin was the softest I'd ever felt it! I went back to ulta the next day and dropped the $50 for the full size bottle. You can't put a price on confidence. But if you could it would cost $50 for this amazing stuff lol. I hope it works wonders for the rest of you! I'm done looking. I've found the answer to all my problems :-)

Awesome product! I used this product every night for a month and some change now and my frown lines tightened!!!! Its good for those like me who don't have wrinkles, it wont cure them but help ease them when they grow out. Made my skin even colored, didnt break me out and soften lines. I love this and will be using this forever.

Beyond impressed with this product. I received a small sample of it from Sephora. The girl praised this product and couldn't say anything bad about it. My skin is pretty clear to begin with so I thought "Ok what's this going to do anyway" I was a bit skeptical considering my skin is oily/combo with some dry patches during this time of year.
I get some redness around my mouth and nose. Since I've been using this product, the dry patches/redness is GONE! I mean within 2 days I saw the difference.
Putting oil on oily skin is bad right? Wrong! I pressed this in to my skin and within a minute the oil had absorbed. I didn't look like an oil slick. I haven't even used any moisturizer on my face since I got this sample. It's like a serum/moisturizer in one. Sephora recommended to use it at night. I've used it day and night. It makes my fine lines less visible, pores smaller and my dreaded blackheads on my nose are smaller. My skin is sensitive and this isn't irritate it at all. In fact, it felt soothing. After I put it on, it looks and feels like I went to get the best facial.
I've been using it for 5 days and I'm rushing back to get the full size very soon. This a winner and a staple now in my skincare routine!

I am so happy I came across this product! I use as a nightly moisturizer and use about 4 drops on my face and 1 drop on my neck, rubbing on my hands first and massaging well onto face. Since it is an oil I thought it would make my face look greasy but it absorbs within a few minutes. I have always taken care of my skin and it was in good condition before I started using this but even after a couple uses I was noticing improvements, brighter skin, smaller pores, etc. Now that I have been using it for a few months I will never go back to not having this as a part of my nightly routine. It smells slightly nutty, but once it is on my skin the smell disappears. I nicknamed this Angel Tears because I think it is an absolute miracle product!

I heard this oil was great for dry skin and the skin around and on my nose was really dry so I decided to try and see if this would work. It felt great going on; however, when I awoke the next morning my nose felt swollen. Imagine my horror and surprise when I looked in the mirror and saw that my nose was twice its size! It's been several days and my nose still doesn't feel the same. So weird. I think the reason why some people see a temporary improvement in their fine lines is because this plumps the skin in some way. I'm not touching this stuff ever again.

I bought this product to brighten my skin (especially under my eyes). I've been very pleased with it. I have fairly oily skin, but this product does not make it oilier or greasier. It did brighten my skin a lot. Sometimes I feel the need to put a heavier/more moisturizing cream on top of it, but not always. While I see myself likely repurchasing, it is not a cure-all product.

About me: NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
I received a mini of this product as part of a VIB Tarte offer. I have used argan oil and jojoba oil on my face when it's dry, but this felt even nicer. My skin is definitely combination, as I use drying products on my cheeks to get rid of acne scarring. So before my face primer, I rub some face oil into my cheeks to reduce any dry areas. This sinks in and never makes me greasy or break out. I have been using it for 2 weeks. Might be HG.

I asked my bf to bring this back with him from Sephora in the US and I am SO in love with this product!
First of all, the packaging is amazing...It comes in a purple glass bottle with wooden screwtop and integrated pipette, the whole thing is packed very attractively inside a bamboo lookalike box, all very classy and luxurious.
The product itself is fantastic, you just take 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand, spread them evenly and smooth all over the face. The scent is very natural and subtle, I don't think there is any added fragrance at all. The oil sinks into the skin and makes it radiant, supersoft and velvety without leaving any greasy film or shine. I have used this as a makeup base in the daytime as well as an overnight treatment, and both works perfectly. Usually I don't even have to use another moisturiser on my cheeks which I find impressive, since most face oils alone do not give me enough moisture. This is definitely my new favourite winter skincare product and might even work beautifully in summer, seeing how light the texture is. Only other face oil that can compete with this quality is Nude Skincare Replenishing Night Oil.
The price is quite high (40/50 dollars?) but the bottle is bigger than I expected, and will probably last a very long time. Big HG potential for sure, though I will have to update later concerning long-term effects...
Edit: Unfortunately this face oil seems to be giving me breakouts, at least when used pure as an overnight treatment on my skin. I have discontinued use for the time being but will try this mixed with my normal moisturizer to see if that works. It's a pity because I really liked the idea off maracuja oil and it seemed so amazing at first...
