I got a small sample size in my ipsy bag, and it works great to just keep my skin normal and smooth.

I really wanted to like this product but it broke me out. The anti-aging qualities were wonderful. But I had to stop using it after 1 week. I have very oily skin.

I loved the Boscia Tsubaki beauty oil but this was 50% off for the 21 days of Beauty with Ulta so I figured I'd pick it up as my replacement. It's nothing like the tsubaki oil. The tsubaki is more moisturizing to my dry skin and I wake up with beautiful skin. This one did nothing to make my skin better and for a long time, I wondered if it might be making my skin worse. I started rubbing this oil between my hands and then lightly patting it over my whole face. Now I'm experiencing less breakouts but that could also be the Differin finally working. Just using this up and then trying something cheaper and better.

I've been using my small bottle I received from my ipsy bag and I loved how it makes my skin feel in the morning. I liked it so much I decided to use it in place of a night cream. Unfortunately the price is ridiculous, 1.7 ounces for a whopping $48! And not only that, it's not 100% pure because it also contains tocopherol, that's probably added as a preservative. Went on Amazon and bought 100% cold pressed, unrefined maracuja oil, 4 ounces for $14 from an indie family owned company. A lot of these companies like tarte are betting on the fact that most consumers will not do their research, read labels and try to get the most bang for their buck. I'd rather get a great deal on a superior product from a family/indie company than give companies like tarte my hard earned money that are not necessarily honest about the overpriced products they are selling.

This is a fantastic oil for moistirization. I like to massage a few drops over my embryolisse moisturizer to give myself a dewy glow. It thins out my foundation and makes my skin look translucent. I'm combo, so I don't wear this under my makeup on days I need it to last and not break down.

I have combo oily skin, and oily skin usually coincides with larger pores (and we all know it's the "t zone" area). I used some points on ipsy for it, figuring it'd be worth the try and if not, no biggie.

I've only been using this as part of my pretty basic skin routine for about a week now (exfoliate, cleanse, tone, moisturize) and I like it so far. I use it in place of my moisturizer at night and my face isn't grease city when I wake up. Is this what having "normal" skin feels like? I put this on after using Neutrogena Rapid Clear toner (which has salycilic acid in it) and my pores aren't as huge because I'm not producing so much oil, and in turn they aren't as clogged. I definitely recommend this as part of your skin care routine.

Only 4/5 because I haven't used it long enough to see if there are any serious adverse reactions, but I'm excited about this product so far.

That was longwinded, but I hope it helps.

This oil smells like cooking grease and breaks me out but I know why. This isnt pure maracuja oil and its also heated up which spoils the oil. I would get maracuja from a different company for much cheaper especially if they don't heat up their oils. I prefer argan oil to this.
The Josie maran argan oil is very light and doesn't have a noticeable smell, and it keeps me moisturized without breaking me out. I have combo acne prone skin so I get hella zits while still being dry and flakey, and that one works for me for moisturizing.

I got this as part of my Ipsy bag and I must say I am pleasantly surprised. This oil can be used on face, body, and hair. It's truly the best multi-tasking oil I have ever used.

I mostly use this as a serum after cleansing and before moisturizer on my face and neck. It definitely smells like an oil, but it's not overwhelming (like olive oil). It sinks into skin beautifully. This absolutely improves skin texture and softness, but did not reduce scars or acne for me.

This oil works very well on hair that needs a little bit of smoothing and also works beautifully on dry lips. A drop of this mixed into foundation ensures it will apply wonderfully and not cling onto dry patches.

TLDR: This is not a miracle oil, but is a great multi-tasker. I personally think it's a good value considering the myriad possible uses.

I like this. Got a small sample deluxe from sephora. Great for an overnight oil for dry skin especially in the cold months. I dont think I"ll rebuy unless its a sephora perk or something. Expensive.

A 1 oz bottle of passion fruit (maracuja) oil in a plastic bottle is $11 or $13.50 for 1 oz in an amber glass bottle with dropper at gardenofwisdom.com and shipping is $3.95. There is also a larger bottle available. This oil is also cold pressed and organic. They are both 100% oil so they are exactly the same quality. Unfortunately with the Tarte Maracuja Oil you are paying for the name and adorable packaging. I would suggest you keep your Tarte bottle and fill it with the other oil so you can trick yourself into accepting this sad truth.

I am unfortunately allergic/sensitive to this oil as it gave me tiny bumps all over my face and felt excessively dry for days after one use. It smells like cooking oil so I added a few drops of lavender essential oil and use it on my hands where it doesn't bother my skin.
