The Beauty That Is Maracuja Oil

Own purchase

You’ve heard of it but don’t really know much about it. Well, I’m one with you in flesh and blood beauties. If not for tarte’s genius marketing, I wouldn’t know that this maracuja oil is nothing but….

* a passion fruit mostly found in the Amazon

* the oil extracted from it is called passion flower oil (well of course, duh?!)

* called lilikoi in Hawaii, our version of passion fruit

* rich in Vitamin C that helps skin look firmer, brighter and smoother
* a clear and odorless substance

Between passion fruit and maracuja, the latter sounds fancier and more intriguing, right?

So that tiny bottle (deluxe size) you see above is part of a set that I purchased many moons ago. A full size (1.7 oz) retails for $46 at Sephora and It’s 100% percent pure unadulterated organic maracuja oil.

Since I have oily face, I am adamant to add or replace my nightly skincare regimen with this oil. Instead, I use this as my under eye moisturizer, and girl I like it so much! It is quickly absorbed and my eye area feels soft and smooth. One teeny weeny drop is all you need. I also use this to soften my stubborn cuticles or moisturize my dry hairline. Multi-tasking is the right word baby.

While I can’t vouch for its anti-aging promise (c’mon, we will all age whether we like it or not) I absolutely love the fact that it’s all- natural and cruelty-free.

Have you tried maracuja oil?

    I had never considered an oil for my under eyes. That's where I get the most dry. I have been using Estée Lauders…I may try this tonight 🙂

    I too have oily skin, but incorporating argan oil as my night time moisturizer was a real game changer for me, so I say go ahead and give the maracuja a shot! I have an obsession with beauty oils in general and I definitely want to give this one a try. I love that it is a muli tasking wonder (like a lot of other oils). This is definitely on my wishlist!
