Fabulous for those days when your skin is just meh…
Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of the holiday tomorrow I wanted to share one of my holy grail green beauty/skincare brands with you – Tata Harper. Actually, that’s not entirely true, as I definitely would be talking about this incredible line regardless, St. Patty’s Day or not. Based on a family farm in Vermont, Tata Harper directly sources some of the highest quality organic ingredients for their products – which are entirely eco-friendly, cruelty free, and non toxic. I adore pretty much everything I have tried from the brand especially their cleansers, eye cream, blush pots etc. Check out this older post for one of my other top Tata picks. (Also, I’m thinking of doing an update soon on my overall favorites from the line so stay tuned). Today though, I want to focus on this mask as it may be the best natural exfoliant that I have ever tried.
The Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask is perfect for sloughing away that outer layer of dead skin to reveal a brighter and “glowier” complexion almost immediately. Apply it after cleansing your skin and leave it on for about 15-30 minutes before rinsing off and following with your favorite serum, moisturizer etc. I will say that it is probably best to apply this mask the night before a big event rather than the day of as it can make your skin go slightly pink for a little while after. I also started out just applying the mask for 10-15 minutes and then I gradually built up to the full 30 once my skin was more accustomed to it. However, keep in mind that my skin is very sensitive!! In the end though, even for my ultra finicky skin, the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, worked like magic. When first applied, it has sort of a jelly like texture, but smells fresh and lightly floral. It quickly begins to feel cooling on the face and seems to firm up slightly the longer you leave it on. After each little pamper session, I instantly noticed results – the next morning any residual textural issues were diminished and my skin felt and looked smoother/more radiant. It’s also wise to do this type of exfoliation once a week as it allows the rest of your skincare essentials to truly sink in and become even more effective.
The ingredient list on the Resurfacing Mask cannot be beat – chock full of plant and fruit based extracts that gently provide a natural peel for the skin. It serves as the perfect facial “pick me up.” My only gripe is the small size of the pot – I wish there was more! Unfortunately that is most likely to preserve the natural ingredients in the exfoliant and a small sacrifice to pay for the instant glow factor. Also, the packaging itself is beautiful, just like every other Tata product – it will look lovely sitting out on your counter with the sleek green and gold pot. The jar feels substantial in weight and is easy to recycle or repurpose once finished. I hope that you all enjoy this skincare favorite as much as I have!
