Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

What it is:A skin-softening scrub that sloughs away dryness with raw sugar and replenishes with pure maracuja oil for soft, smooth lips. What it does: This powerful resurfacing lip scrub exfoliates lips, then provides instant hydration—quenching without a greasy feel. The raw sugar granules are suspended in the soothing, balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C, acting as a natural exfoliator to rid the dead cells that cause lips to chap and crack. As lips are exfoliated, maracuja oil simultaneously promotes hydration, cell recovery, and surface rejuvenation. Lips are left noticeably revitalized, fuller, and kissed with a hint of refreshing mint. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates- Synthetic Fragrances - Petrochemicals- Phthalates- GMOs- Triclosan

Questions & Answers for Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

For badly bitten lips?
I have a bad habit of biting my lips, and this time I bit them so bad that its taking nearly a month for them to grow back. And even then, they're only half growing back and the skin is barely hanging on. So would this be good for my lips while they're growing back or should I try something else?

I would heal it with Aquaphor (buy at the drugstore) and then use this product to keep your lips hydrated after they heal.

Not an intentional play on words but after exfoliating, follow up with Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. It's simply wonderful to keep your lips extra soft and supple as they heal. Good Luck. :-)

No, this will reverse what you are trying to achieve. Make sure to hydrate your lips day and night.

I can sympathize: I bite my lower lip too, it's a terrible habit. Since you're just recovering, you don't want a harsh exfoliant. I think this stuff would be perfect for you. The exfoliating sugar is softly hidden among natural oils so it glides onto your lips and gently exfoliates and nourishes them at the same time. This product ended up being perfect to help me grow the layers of my lips back after biting so I definitely think it's a worth a try for you. Hope this helps ! :)

i think this lip scrub is more organic so it would be perfect for you unless you are sensitive to minty tingles. It definitely has mint in it. but its very nice and non harsh so i use it after i bite my lips sometimes..haha

it's not a lip balm and is pretty grainy so it's not meant to be left on

answer 3
You tissue it off or wash it off with a damp washcloth after a minute or so. It's not a lip balm so you can't wear it all day. It's gritty because of the sugar in it.

answer 4
This is a physical scrub that is meant to be applied, rubbed around on the lips and then gently wiped off with a damp cloth. It's not meant to be left on all day as a lip treatment. It does leave behind a bit of an oily coating but I find that my lips feel drier after exfoliating this than before and therefore require a thick layer of lip balm following the exfoliation. I would not use this on cracked lips because it contains peppermint oil (smells/tastes very strong) and would sting on broken skin. On non-cracked lips this gentle enough to use once a day, in my experience. Hope that helps!

why is this advertised as Maracuja lip exfoliant if it does not contain maracuja oil?
I'm a bit confused. Ingredients are listed as: Sucrose, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire D’abeille, Cera Carnauba/Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cire De Carnauba, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Passiflora Incarnata Seed Oil, Limonene.

I just came to give the same answer after posting a review.
Passiflora Incarnata Seed Oil...
That's it! Nice...

answer 2
Passiflora Incarnata is the biological name for Maracuja. Hope this helps! It can be confusing when a plants known name is used in the description/product name and biological names must be used on the ingredient listings.
