A few months back, Tarte sent over some of their skincare products and these are the ones that suit my oily skin.
A solid cleanser that’s great for travel, the Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser ($22) contains diatomaceous earth microexfoliants (fossilized sea algae) to remove surface oil, reduce shine, and purify pores. As expected, this cleanser has some exfoliating bits to it. For an on-the-go cleanser, this thoroughly cleanses my skin. It removes all the dirt and excess oil on my skin. Personally, this is a bit stripping for everyday use. However, I like using this after spending a lot of time outdoors or when my skin is feeling clogged.
The Rainforest of the Sea Deep Sea Collagen Super Serum ($39) contains a bi-phase cocktail of marine-based collagen, marine plant extracts, and oils to plump and brighten the skin. I love how light and watery this is. It works in the morning because it sinks in so quickly. It doesn’t completely dry matte but it leaves a satin-like texture that suits my hydrating foundation. It also feels hydrating and nourishing to the skin.
Formulated to hydrate and protect the skin, the Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum ($42) contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and marine plant extracts. This is a lightweight serum that feels nourishing and hydrating to the skin. I use this when my skincare routine focuses on hydration. It helps control oil in the morning, making my makeup stay longer.
The Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer ($39) uses hyaluronic acid, sea salts, and plant extracts to soothe, hydrate, and refresh the skin. Admittedly, this feels like the hydrating gel K-Beauty moisturizers. It looks and feels like them too with its light gel consistency that sinks in quickly into the skin. It feels refreshing and hydrating to the skin.
Overall, these products work in hydrating my oily skin. If you’re a fan of Tarte and/or looking for vegan skincare products, they are worth checking out.
