I’d like to introduce you to TATA HARPER

I have been using Tata Harper Skincare for the past few months, and as you know, I take my skincare and recommendations very seriously, so wanted to give it some time before I filled you in on the products.  Well……I LOVE THEM and am excited to share with you what I’ve been using.  I was first turned onto the line from one of my clients and friends Rachel Zoe, and was excited to get my hands on it myself because Rachel was always singing praises for Tata’s line.  Before I get into the products, I want to give you a little information on Tata and the line itself since I haven’t talked about it on the blog before.

A pioneer in natural luxury skincare, Tata couldn’t find 100% natural products that were up to her impeccable standards of efficacy, quality, and purity. So she started Tata Harper Skincare to make them – for herself, and for women like her who refuse to risk their health for beauty. If she doesn’t feel that a product is perfect, we won’t launch it.

“I love doing this. I feel very happy creating a product that not only makes your skin beautiful but also keeps people healthy and improves quality of life. That is extremely rewarding.”

“Everyone associates me with Vermont,” she says, “but Colombia is where my love of beauty came from.” In her hometown of Barranquilla, Harper helped her grandmother host home spa parties on Saturdays. “I would prepare all the scrubs and this mask with vinegar and mayo for the hair,” she says. “Beauty was not a chore or a luxury but something you did to make yourself happy.”

“I couldn’t find anything that was effective, made of high-quality ingredients, and pleasant to use. I knew if I was looking for results without worrying about my safety, other women must be too, so I decided to create my own.”

I broke down the information for each product I use along with a little info straight from the Tata Team, so hopefully it will be helpful for you as well.  It’s a lot considering I’ve been testing out quite a few, but feel free to take what you want from the information provided.  Maybe you are in the market for a moisturizer or a mask, or can start to incorporate things here and there from the line.  This line is free from a lot of  things that may be a concern for you, so if so, feel excited that you have excellent options of quality ingredients and performance.

Refreshing Cleanser: 

I am obsessed with this cleanser!  It feels soooooo on the skin.  The texture is an interesting one.  It comes out looking like a milky cream in your hands, but then quickly turns into what feels like a cleansing oil on the skin.  It feels so good, that I find myself cleansing my skin longer, and really massage and work it in.  It does not lather.  Be sure to rinse really well with warm water, it takes a few splashes to completely remove.  It also smells like heaven.  I am truly obsessed with the smells of all of Tata’s products.  Heaven in a bottle.  I like keeping it out on my countertop near my sink, and one pump is all you need for the entire face.
This gentle cleansing treatment removes surface impurities while minimizing pore appearance and helping to preserve hydration. Skin is left feeling balanced, refreshed and hydrated. Cleanses and refines the appearance of pores. Gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Concentrated Brightening Serum: 

I like to use this in combination with the Illuminating Moisturizer and Illuminating Eye Cream.  I’ve been using it for over two months now, and my skin LOVES it.  As I’m nearing my mid 30’s, hyper pigmentation and dark spots are a real concern.  I feel like the gift I got for my 30th birthday was my skin giving me all the sunspots that had been hiding for the years of sun damage previous……what a nice gift!  I do feel that my skin looks more radiant and bright since I started using this serum.  I think with any brightening serum, consistency is key.  What I’ve learned from my esthetician is that once the sun damage has started, you’ll never fully be able to get it gone, it just has to be treated.  What that means is that the damage is there, and you have to actively keep it at bay.  You can get the color gone, but when you start to slack or ignore, it can come right back.  That’s why I’ve always said sunscreen is SO important, to prevent these things!!!

This multitasking age-defying treatment effectively illuminates, brightens and corrects the appearance of skin tone for a balanced, radiant complexion. A blend of targeted technology takes a triple-action approach to fighting and minimizing the appearance of dark spots. Brassica Napus and Sea Fern Extract helps to minimize the appearance of dark spots. Colorless Carotenoids help prevent the appearance of dark spots, and Norwegian Kelp boosts glow and helps reduce the look of dark spots.

Illuminating Moisturizer and Illuminating Eye Cream:

Anything to bring more illumination…..yes please!  I love both of these creams because they have a little bit of diamond dust in the formula.  It creates a beautiful glow effect on the skin, almost like an instant veil or filter.  The actual moisturizer is also formulated with hyularonic acid, which helps to plump the skin and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.  The consistency is a little on the lighter side, so if you are super dry I would recommend mixing with a drop of oil or cream.  I love love putting both the moisturizer and eye cream on before the gym, which gives my skin the perfect glow and freshness.  You can also mix these with your favorite foundation or concealer, or use directly as a highlighter.  The eye cream also works fantastic as a highlighter on it’s own!  Try putting it on over the top of your concealer!

Diamond dust, uniquely paired with a special blend of minerals, provides a perfecting veil imparting a subtle, soft-focus luminescence in this luxurious complexion-perfecting moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates for fresh and glowing looking skin. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Complete age-defying eye treatment with a soft-focus luminescence using real diamond dust for a highlighting effect. Instantly illuminates the look of the eye area. Minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet and wrinkles. Reduces appearance of puffiness, dark shadows and fatigue.

Creme Riche: 

Oooooo La La!  This creme is soooooo divine!  I like to use this cream at night for the ultimate over night hydration, or mix a little bit with the illuminating moisturizer for day if my skin is feeling a little parched.  If you tend to have dry skin, you will die for this cream.  It’s SO lovely!  It is very concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way.  Tata recommends heating it up in your hands before applying to the face.  It activates the sugars.

Our richest moisturizer is formulated with sixteen sources of hydration and twelve sources of age-defying botanicals that lift, plump, and volumize the look of the skin. Hyaluronic and essential fatty acids help lock in moisture for an instantly soft, supple, youthful appearance.

Clarifying Mask: 

The perfect way to look like the wicked witch of the west!  (It’s bright green…) JK but this mask is just what your skin needs if you are having any breakouts or issues.  I’ve used it a few times and though as you can see below it’s very active, it doesn’t irritate the skin or leave it feeling dry.  As a mask, lay it on thick and leave on for about 15-20 minutes.  You can also use as an exfoliating cleanser if you only have a minute.

The Clarifying Mask is the ultimate weapon against any skin imperfection to get your skin back to looking healthy, balanced, and clear. This complexion clearing treatment has an enzymatic peel effect that helps mask the appearance of breakouts, redness, and excess sebum without drying or irritating the skin. Salicylic Acid Trio minimizes the appearance of blemishes, while AHA Superfruit blend & Lactic Acid refine the appearance of pores. Chlorella nourishes and hydrates with essential vitamins and fatty acids. As you rinse the mask and gently massage, Quartz Sand Micro-Crystals physically exfoliate & soften the look of your skin.

Resurfacing Mask:

If you are feeling a little dull, this is your instant solution!  There are multiple ways to use it, which are explained below.

This award-winning beta-hydroxy mask works like a traditional peel to provide an instant solution for dull skin – without causing downtime or irritation. Delivers instant glow, helps minimize the appearance of pores, and improves texture for smooth, radiant skin. Formulated to purify and remove surface debris and dead skin for a refreshed, instantly revitalized appearance.

Use the Resurfacing Mask every day for 2-3 days, then reduce to 1-2 times per week for softer, glowing skin. Apply a thick layer over the face, neck, and chest. Leave for 15-30 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

For a mid-week boost, layer the resurfacing mask on top of the regenerating cleanser and leave on for five minutes.

Revitalizing Body Oil: 

I’ve always been a huge fan of a great body oil, but know that not all oils can be treated equally.  Some are too greasy, thin, or stay on top of your skin and don’t absorb.  Not Tata’s.  It is everything.  The skin absorbs it beautifully, and your skin is left glowing, hydrated, and smelling delicious.

This fast-absorbing body oil provides comprehensive hydrating and invigorating benefits to the entire body for a youthful looking appearance. Essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients help promote healthy looking skin while moisturizing and helping to relieve dry, rough patches. Leaves skin feeling noticeably softer and smoother.
