Hey loves, how you been? Honestly I'm sorry I've been so bad about blogging. I've been a bit crazed. I'm getting ready for my trip to LA so life has been hectic. I hope your holidays have been amazing!! What did you get for Christmas? I hope everything you wanted! But let's talk beauty. For the last few weeks, I've been using Tarte Maracuja Oil. You girls know I am the Queen of oils. I love oils. They are not only fantastic beauty products but they are super affordable too (well most of them are). We've talked about the benefits of coconut oil, jojoba, olive oil, avocado oil, emu oil etc on this site. But I have to be super particular about the oils I use on my face because my skin is super sensitive and acne prone. Maracuja oil (passion fruit oil) is a oil found in the Amazon. It contains high amounts of essential fatty acids including Linoleic acid (which is so good for the skin and hair), Calcium, Vitamins A and vitamin C. It's gotten some pretty great reviews, and I've been using it as well, and so has Mr. Milly. Click Below To read more
I'll tell you one thing, I recently tested a home peel that left my skin horribly red and made it super flaky with dry scaly patches, for about five days. I tried the maracuja oil after, and it helped tremendously. After using it for one day, my skin was back to normal. I thought that was pretty great. When applied, I use about three drops on my whole face. The oil which has a slight scent ( reminds me of vegetable oil) sinks right into my skin, doesn't break me out and leaves my skin super hydrated and so smooth without feeling greasy. Many people use it in their hair, which makes sense because it contains a high amount of linoleic acid (a fatty acid that works wonders on hair). I haven't tried that yet. All in all, I like it. What I don't like is the price. $46.00 is expensive for an oil.
Have you ever heard of Maracuja oil?
