Tata Harper


If you asked me what my skincare regimen consisted of a few months ago I would have most likely responded with a blank stare. Up until recently, all I really used was Neutrogena face wash and Cerave lotion with an occasional face mask here and there. I don't necessarily think there is anything wrong with going with simple skincare if that's what works for you and it did work for me for a while. But something happened and I'm not sure if it was because I hit my 30s or if it's because I had three children in a short amount of time but I feel like my skin just lacked luster. My skin looked tired, washed out, dry and just meh. I felt like right after I turned thirty about fifty new wrinkles popped up on my face. But honestly, I have come to embrace tolerate them. I know there is no magic potion that can turn back time and give you your skin from your twenties but I definitely think there are products out there that can help.

If you read Kaitlin's skincare post from a few weeks ago then you heard her say that finding the best skin care products for you can be a pricey trial and error. And that's kind of what I'm doing now. I went into Sephora last month to pick up a few things and wanted to see if they carried a serum that Kaitlin had recommended to me and when I found out Sephora didn't carry this particular brand I ended up finding myself at the Tata Harper section. If you know me at all you know I try to live as "naturally" as possible. It drives my family crazy at times but I do think it's important to live without so many of these harmful chemicals found in so many of our everyday products- both household and selfcare products.

Back to Tata Harper:: all of her products are 100% natural and nontoxic and just about every ingredient they put into their products are grown on her 1,200 acre farm in Vermont. They make small batches of their products at a time to ensure freshness and quality and one of my favorites parts- no animal testing! While her products can be pricey (just like almost every other big skincare line), I decided to buy Tata's Daily Essential Kit to test out products before investing in the larger sizes. The kit includes: Regenerating Cleanser, Hydrating Floral Essence, Rejuvenating Serum, Reparative Moisturizer, Restorative Eye Creme, and Replenishing Nutrient Complex. I wasn't planning on falling in love, but I did. I think it was a combination of not properly taking care of my skin in the past and also because her products are really that great. After using everything (except for the mask) twice a day for a few days, I saw an instant improvement in my skin's brightness and moisture. I absolutely love the cleanser and the serum. The only problem with the kit is that I wish there was a larger sample of the eye cream (it comes in a small packet) and I used it all at once (which maybe wasn't the right way to use it?) After testing out these products, I would 100% buy the larger sizes. I still have a few products from other brands that I'm going to be testing in the next few months but will keep Tata's products for good.
