My Thoughts:  I really like the way that this sinks into my skin, and it doesn't break me out.  I'm not sure what about it didn't agree with my skin personally though.  I was suffering from dry flaky patches on the sides of my nose, and instead of fixing and preventing that, it seemed to exacerbate it.  It has a slightly nutty scent to it, nothing overpowering but not unpleasant. I love the bottle.  It's very pretty with it's jewel tone purple and easy to use dropper.  This comes in a lot of of sets from Tarte it seems, and I've got lots of samples of it.  Maybe it will be better to supplement my new skincare routine now that the dry patches have been resolved, so I plan on trying it again to see if the dry patches come back or not.

Final Verdict:  I think this would be a great facial oil for those with combination or oily skin, since it sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a residue on the skin.  Drier skins should use in conjunction with a rich moisturizer to lock in the benefits of the oil.

  1. Another super interesting review. I've been using rosehip oil recently and it's fantastic. I'll definitely have to try this one as well!

    1. Caroline,
      I've heard great things on rose hip oil. We learned in esthetics school that it and primrose oil have the most similar structure to natural sebum of any plant oils, making them very effective hydrators for the skin. Glad you liked the review!

  2. I like both coconut and passion fruit oil- although I must say I enjoy passion fruit in juice blends too
