Had you told me as a teenager with some acne issues that I would one day purposely put oil on my face, I never would have believed you. In fact, I resisted the beauty oil trend for quite some time, but when I learned about it’s ability to curb signs of aging and that it can give me a youthful healthy glow I was intrigued. This long, cold winter has played havoc with my skin (it’s pissed) and at this stage in my life…I’m ready to bathe in it. The gloves are off.
I have been liberally using Tarte’s limited-edition, super size maracuja oil and C-Brighter Eye Treatment and my skin is so much happier. Oils deliver antioxidants and other powerful anti-aging ingredients to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Maracuja oil is quick absorbing and rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids to hydrate sensitive, dry, and even acne prone skin. The complexion is more evenly toned and smooth without leaving a greasy feel. It is known to help control sebum production (acne) for improved skin clarity and texture.
I press the oil (don’t rub) into my just washed face and neck before bed and have even been adding a drop to my oil-free foundation in the morning. It has made a world of difference.
Tarte also has a complimentary marauja oil botanical eye-brightening treatment that firms and brightens the delicate skin around the eyes. The skintuitive™ formula addresses fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles by hydrating, firming, and brightening the delicate eye area for immediate results and improvement over time. This nutrient-rich cream is super hydrating for smooth, youthful-looking eyes. Vitamin C instantly illuminates tired eyes for a refreshed, rested appearance. Antioxidant rice bran, mango and coconut fight signs of aging and free radical damage while oat sugars instantly smooth and visibly tighten skin.
Both products are Parabens and Phthalates free.
