After 6 short weeks of using tarte's 100% organic maracuja oil, made from pressing the pulp of the passion fruit into a quickly-absorbing liquid:
96% of women saw an overall visible improvement in skin;
94% saw their skin texture improve and look renewed & rejuvenated;
91% reported fewer fine lines & wrinkles.
...also didn't miss what was missing, including parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, petrochemicals, GMOs, triclosan or phthalates.
...and really loved:
the way it's rich in Vitamin C, helping your complexion instantly appear brighter & more radiant;
the anti-inflammatory benefits;
hydration without greasiness or a yucky filmy feel;
the antiaging effect.
"tarte is a leader in healthy, eco-chic beauty, offering cruelty-free cosmetics infused with skinvigorating ingredients like superfruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally-derived ingredients," adds the CEO & founder, Maureen Kelly, who's made it her mission to make green-chic beauty goodies that are packaged with style & live up to promise. "Ingredients are absolutely important to me, but so are formulas that perform. We call it tarte 12-hour power, but you'll just notice it lasts." Which the many many positive reviews certainly confirm. Both sensitive & oil complexioned ladies report better hydration, smoother skin & fewer breakouts, while others rave about how soft it makes their skin plus glowy looking. One even found that if she applied it after her regular glycolic peels, instead of the usual 3 days of red, scaly, angry post-peel skin, her face looked firm & glowy the next morning. The oil has also helped to soften user's acne scars from acne as well as lightening dark circles. The only negative seems to be the price, $46 for 1.7 ounces, but the fact you only use 2-3 drops per night and it actually works make almost everyone agreed they plan to buy the oil again.
TO USE: A little of this powerful precious maracuja oil can completely replace your nighttime moisturizer plus a little goes a looooooooooooooooong way - as in all you need is 2-3 drops. (No, really.) After you clean your face & neck and pat them dry, put a few drops of the oil on your hands (the bottle comes with medicine dropper so you can control how much you want to use), rub them together, and apply.
