Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

Hey guys! 

I want to get an oil to use as a night time skin treatment. Have any of you tried both the Tarte Maracuja oil and the Josie Maran Argan oil, and if so, which one did you prefer? I have oily, sensitive and acne prone skin btw

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

Try Maracuja, Argan oil is heavier. I have combo skin and only use Argan oil in the winter.

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

I totally agree with this!  

 

Argan oil is heavier and just doesn't absorb into oily or combo skin as easily as the lighter maracuja oil, though I admit I found both a touch too heavy for summer's humidity (though to be fair, I find almost everything on the face, including the requisite sunscreen, too heavy for summer's humidity).

 

For oily skin, I might even recommend using a treatment oil in lieu of any moisturizer.  Too much nourishment is sometimes just too much, and on the face, that tends to result in more acne issues.

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

I prefer the Josie Maran. For my dry skin it really helps hydrate it. I have sensitive/acne prone skin too and neither has broken me out. I did not like the Tarte one at all. I used it for a month and saw no results. Maybe it wasnt strong enough? With the Josie Maran I saw results with the same day of using it. I'd say go with Josie Maran but since you have oily skin use VERY little.

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

I second this.  Try the light version.  it works wonders for my oily, yet dry skin.

Hey there Smiley Happy

 

I haven't tried both oils, but I can tell you that I am 100% in love with Tarte Maracuja Oil Smiley Happy

 

Majorly has cut down on the oil my face products, hydrates, reduces the amount of acne breakouts I get. Very noticeable difference overnight on blemishes- it is anti-inflammatory. The first night I used it I was literally stunned how much better my face looked in the morning. Over time, brightens your face and fades scars. I have sensitive skin as well and have never had problems! There isn't one single negative thing I can say about this product Smiley Happy

 

If you want to try it for free, the code VIBTARTE gets you a small bottle that lasts a LONG time- we're talking about 2 months of daily use. The code also comes with a mascara and an eyelash primer Smiley Happy

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

I have extremely dry skin and the Argan oil was so much more hydrating than the Maracuja oil. I can't say which is better for oily skin, but if your worried about breakouts, every ones skin is completely different so the only way to know is to try. The Argan oil is heavier but it's perfect for a night treatment. You want something heavier at night. It's best to try to get some samples and see which you prefer.

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

Hm it seems like I might just have to try to get samples of both and try which one works best. Thank you so much everyone!!! <3

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

Josie Maran is awesome Smiley Wink

Re: Tarte Maracuja oil vs Josie Maran Argan oil?

I maybe alone in this problem, but I had been a loyal argan beauty for a while.  I really loved Josie Maran's products, and there are still some I do use.  

 

However recently the Argan oil gave my face a bad reaction.  I was using it at night because my skin was dry.  Unfortunately, It started giving me very dry, red, and bumpy patches that resembled rosacea, which I have never experienced before.  I kept using it hoping for it to improve, but finally it got so bad I couldn't take it.  

I switched over to First Aid Beauty line and absolutely LOVE it.

 

The argan oil started to clog/sit in my pores.  A lot of people love it though...my skin tends to be sensitive although I try to deny that fact a lot.  

 

Also, I read lots of reviews and while there are many people that love the Argan oil, I seem to have found less "bad" stories like mine about the Maracuja oil.  

Good Luck!
