Tata Harper Skincare. My Take.

When it comes to skincare, I believe that less is more. By less I mean ingredients. No toxins or crazy chemicals in my cleanser or moisturizer. The simpler, the better. I often just cleanse my face with a few drops of inexpensive almond oil, followed by a warm washcloth.

Some favorite natural product lines include Sprout Wellness and Dr. Alkaitis. A trusted friend recently turned me on to Tata Harper (who has blown up the wellness blog scene all year) and I was lucky enough to receive the Starter Kit over the holidays.

Simpler? Not quite...but these decadent-smelling serums and spritzes and creams were worth the few extra steps!

I had been lusting after the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser. But is it really worth the change? It smelled like flowers, made my skin feel softer than a baby's, and I could feel it working. My skin didn't feel stripped, just gently clean. 

Two moisturizers were included in the set. Overdoing it? No way...I loved the Rebuilding Moisturizer for the day and the Reparative Moisturizer for night. You cannot skip moisturizer after cleaning. It is the most important thing and if I only have time for one thing in my routine, it is moisturizer.

There is also a Hydrating Floral Essence that is refreshing but probably not a necessity for me. You are supposed to spritz it on after the cleanser, followed by the Rejuvenating Serum. I like the serum, which is supposed to approve both appearance and tone, but at $150, I don't think I will be rushing to order it.

After a few days of morning and nightly use, I am noticing brighter, tighter-feeling skin and cleaner pores. It's not a huge difference but I think if you were to compare your skin after a few weeks, you would see results.

You can definitely feel the ingredients "working" but in a gentle way. The kit also comes with a mask, which I tried yesterday. It is clear and dries very quickly, so it's less messy than most masks. I actually prefer the Dr. Alkaitis mask because it has more exfoliating action. 

I will be stocking up on the Regenerating Cleanser and the moisturizers for the New Year. Tata turned me into a believer.
