I am so late to the Tata Harper party. Just in case you are too, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. If you’ve already been spending quality time with the party cake and don’t need any introduction to the Tata Harper brand, you can skip this bit and get back to the prosecco.
Tata Harper were founded by an actual lady (called Tata Harper!) in Columbia after she discovered the downside of ingredients in conventional beauty products. She developed Tata Harper to offer 100% natural and non toxic which were still high quality, high performing products. She did a blummin’ good job.
As I was new to the whole brand, I decided to try the Daily Essentials kit to see whether they were really worth the hype. That and I have a thing for all the teeny tiny little miniature bottles. In the set, you get 6 products, plus a sachet of restorative eye creme (which didn’t survive long enough to be photographed. I get impatient).
Regenerative Cleanser (15ml)
This is a lovely little cleanser. Tata Harper say that this cleanser is a “daily exfoliating and clarifying treatment to improve glow while purifying, minimizing the appearance of pores and preserving hydration”. It’s creamy and lightly grainy to buff away dead skin. Even though I really like this cleanser and the grains in are tiny, I still feel it’s a little too rough to use on my skin every day. My skin didn’t have any negative reaction to it so this may be a purely psychological, but I tended to use this three times a week. Smells amazing!
Resurfacing mask (7.5ml)
This mask get so much love on the internet. Tata Harper describe it as a “beta-hydroxy treatment that works like a traditional peel to provide an instant solution for dull skin”. This one really does deserve the love, it’s gentle enough that my skin doesn’t look red when it’s removed but it is effective at smoothing my skin. You just smooth it on, leave it for 10 minutes then wash it off and it’s magic is done. Well helllloooo little pot of wonder.
Hydrating Floral Essence (15ml)
Out of the whole set, this spray is still going strong. Does anyone else feel that these little sprays are hugely indulgent? Whenever I spritz it on I always feel a bit…princess like. Just me?! Like the whole range, this spray smells amazing. Tata Harper say it’s a “lightweight, moisturising mist that boosts the skin’s hydration, delivering an all-day hydrated feel and plump appearance”. Hmmm. I love it and I will continue to use it, but I can’t really vouch for the all day hydrated feel and plump appearance. It’s a lovely treat, smells incredible and lasts a long time, but those are the main reasons that I use it more than any visible effect on my skin.
Rejuvenating Serum (10ml)
I love this serum. I took this on holiday and used it (with the moisturiser) solidly for a week whilst camping and it did a really good job of keeping my skin looking cared for, which is no mean feat in a field. Tata Harper says this is the “best-selling multi-tasking collagen treatment fights the look of fine lines and wrinkles with muscle relaxing technology”. Muscle relaxing technology in a serum!? This certainly improved the condition of my skin, evened the tone and kept it feeling hydrated. This sample also lasted around 3 weeks of solid use so a little goes a long way.
Repairative Moisturizer (10ml)
This one is on a par with the serum. They can both be my favourites. This is a little heavier than my normal moisturiser, but wasn’t too much for my combination skin. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with very greasy skin though. Tata Harper describe this as having a “rich, silky formula delivers anti-ageing hydration for an optimal moisture balance and a plump look”. Be-a-u-tifulllll.
Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex (3ml)
This one spiked my “teeny tiny bottles” excitement. Tata Harper describe it as “lightweight facial oil serum to improve the skin’s natural glow, texture and hydration”. I kept this one for nights where I’d include facial massage and it was beautiful for that. The rollerball was great at distributing the oil evenly, smells amazing (see the theme) and again a little goes a long way.
The set costs £55 so it isn’t a bargain but I do think this is good value for money, particularly if you want to try out what Tata Harper has to offer.
As always, I love reading your comments and always appreciate them. Have you tried Tata Harper? Do you also like pretending you’re a giant holding tiny bottles?
