Curious about Tata Harper…It’s amazing how many new beauty and skincare brands I haven’t tried yet and as always curiosity gets the better of me. And perhaps this is somewhat lazy and not 100% fair to those that don’t make the cut, but I do use Space NK as my base for ranking the brands I really want to try. To be honest, most of the beauty and skincare products and brands I love have been discovered there and I’ve rarely been disappointed. For that very reason I’ve been longing to try Tata Harper. I mean the name sounds pretty posh even though I know that’s no sound reason to part with my cash. Still wanting to make somewhat of a sensible decision though I went for a few items that needed replacing or were lacking in my skincare stash when choosing what to go for. So maybe this’ll help you out if you’ve been thinking about this brand or like me are just plain curious to know how it fares.
The Nourishing Oil Cleanser
I’m a huge fan of oil cleansers to remove my makeup; they really remove all that grime and lift impurities from the skin. As mucky as it might sound I get a sense of satisfaction when I can see all that dirt come off! That’s why the Nourishing Oil Cleanser is a great addition to my skincare stash.
This oil cleanser is slightly thick in consistency, has a strong yellow colour and a distinct floral / herbal scent. Like most oil cleansers I apply this to a dry face using gentle circular movements. I then add a little water and rub some more at which point this becomes a bit milky in consistency. When you rinse off with water the skin is left feeling soft and supple and of course clean. I do still use a toner or a double cleanse after this as I would with most cleansers but for a first step, I’m loving the softness of my skin afterwards.
As oil cleaners go this does the job and it’s packed with plenty of skin enhancing properties including vitamins A, C and E as well as omega 3. Needless to say this looks luxurious on my bathroom vanity but given it’s a whopping £71, it’s not a purchase to be taken lightly. Obviously there are many affordable options out there that are just as good, but if a bit of luxury is what you are after then I would give this a try.
The Clarifying Spot Solution
For when emergency strikes, having a good spot treatment to hand is a must. As I was out of my usual Origins Super Spot Remover, I decided to venture into what Tata Harper had to offer since I had heard a few good reviews of their Clarifying Spot Solution, £30. The blend of zinc, copper, magnesium and herbal extracts gives this a medicinal scent and it works to reduce redness and heal spots. More specifically, this helps stop the build up of impurities that may cause the spots in the first place. I personally think it tries to do too much and therefore doesn’t quite hit the mark. Good for perhaps some really small under the skin bumps but as far as a full-on red and angry spot goes, I wouldn’t be relying on this. For that my good old tried and tested Origins Super Spot Remover which you can read about here is my go to.
The Resurfacing Mask
Now I’m definitely saving the best to last. The Resurfacing Mask is just plain fabulous. Shame it comes in the teeniest size though. Since this is £57, I’ve been ignoring the apply liberally instructions and using it really sparingly. I really don’t want to run out of this any time soon. Luckily, even with a stingy amount this gives my skin gets this instant pop of radiance and looks seriously smooth; I think of it as an instant glow in a jar.
“I really don’t want to run out of this any time soon”.
Now that’s probably because of the pink French clay and pomegranate enzymes. This means you get a good deep cleanse as well as a non-abrasive exfoliating effect. Also, beet extracts helps to lock in hydration so after I use this I always look super rested and healthy. A firm favourite for sure and one I would repurchase.
So there it is. Whilst I’m not particularly excited about the Clarifying Spot Solution, I absolutely love the Resurfacing Mask and I’m using the Cleansing Oil to the last drop – that’s not bad going for a first introduction to a brand.
