Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant
Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is a sugar-based formula that smells minty fresh and leaves your lips super soft. I originally purchased this from Tarte.com through their Pro Program in order to add this to my professional makeup artist kit. When I want to apply matte lip products on models, it always goes on more smoothly if their lips have been freshly exfoliated. Before throwing it into my kit, I decided to give it a little try. I took a mixing spatula, scooped out a little, and applied it to my lips. I rubbed my lips together for about 30 seconds.
The moment I opened this decorative tin I noticed how fragrant the Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is. It was like a blast of peppermint to the nostrils. I love it! If you are adverse to peppermint scents, steer clear. The exfoliant is packed with just the right amount of sugar so that it sloughs of dead skin gently and dissolves quickly for easy removal. Just take a tissue/napkin/wet wipe/washcloth, etc. Rubbing your lips together for 15-20 seconds should be sufficient for most people; however, I went for a full 30. The led to me incidentally tasting the scrub. It’s yummy!
The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is exemplary of products from Tarte in that it is free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, synthetic fragrance (Yes! That’s real peppermint oil!), and triclosan. Sugar is used as a natural scrub in this yummy tin. Other goodies packed into the formula include castor seed oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, peppermint oil, Vitamin E and, of course, maracuja (passionfruit) oil.
Although I purchased this for my professional kit, I’m going to be greedy and keep this one for myself. I’ll be ordering another one for my kit. If you haven’t tried this, you are truly missing out.
Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant retails for $16. It is available at Tarte.com, Ulta.com, Sephora.com, Ulta and Sephora.
