Tarte Maracuja Oil

If everyone believed the old adage that says if something is too good to be true it probably is, there would be no such thing as the cosmetics industry. But hope (foolishness?) springs eternal! Enter Tarte's new product, Pure Maracuja Oil ($46). According to the company's literature, the oil is extracted from the "pure miracle" fruit, which was discovered in the jungles of the Amazon. Local women harvest the fruit only once a year and extract the oil by hand, which actually makes the $46 price tag seem a little low for all the work that goes into this product. Tarte did its own study and found the oil to create a bunch of amazing results: everything from reduced wrinkles and improved texture to smaller pores and more even skin tone. After 2 weeks of nightly application, our findings are slightly different: fewer dry spots and smoother texture but stubborn red blotches and fine lines remain. For now, this will replace our current night cream but we'll keep an eagle eye out for the true fountain of youth. Which we know is out there somewhere.... Right?

Full disclosure: Outblush received a free sample of this product.

Maracuja is just the Portuguese word for Passion Fruit. These are ubiquitous in Latin America...

Thanx for an honest review. I worry when everything is super wonderful all the time!

So in other words, this oil is not all that they want to say that it is. I have been trying to find reviews from other sources other than qvc and, there are none! I was tempted to try this oil and now I don't think I will after reading here.

I LOVE this product. I had surgery less than one month ago and use this oil nightly. I have noticed less surgical swelling since using this product. My skin looks more radiant than when I was 18. LOVE this stuff!
