Have you heard about the skincare brand Tata Harper? Until quarantine, I hadn’t given them much thought. I’d encounter their products when researching clean, high-quality skincare lines, but due to the high price had never taken the plunge.
Recently I’ve tried a few of their products: the clarifying cleanser, the purifying mud mask, the clarifying mask, and the hydrating floral mask. Some of these have earned top-shelf status in my bathroom. Others have revealed themselves to be over-hyped. Read on to find out which is which!
Tata Harper Clarifying Cleanser
The Tata Harper clarifying cleanser is a foaming gel cleanser that targets blemish-causing impurities and balances oil with natural salicyclic acid and AHAs for clear, comfortably matte skin. Meant for oily and combination skin, it addresses concerns such as acne, blemishes, pores and oiliness.
This cleanser has a cooling sensation that is quite soothing – it isn’t as harsh as one might think with it being called a clarifying cleanser. Ingredients like prickly pear flower enzymes exfoliate to encourage cell renewal and clear buildup, while chlorella helps nourish the skin to soothe redness and calm irritation (and giving the cleanser its green color). I thoroughly enjoy the sensation of this cleanser. Unfortunately, the price is quite exorbitant at $72.00.
Fighting Acne with Acids: Clarifying Mask
This was the first Tata Harper mask I tried. It’s a blemish-targeting mask that clarifies, exfoliates and soothes redness with AHAs and quartz micro-crystals for a smooth, clear-looking complexion. Meant for dry and combination skin types, I think this would also be a great option for those with oily skin.
Some of the key ingredients include an AHA/BHA blend that chemically exfoliates to clear buildup and minimize oil, African Wild Grape and Raw Honey that hydrate and soothe to visibly calm irritation and minimize the look of redness, and Quartz Sand Micro Crystals to provide physical exfoliation. This mask is definitely a hard-hitter in the fight against acne, but it isn’t so intense that it makes your skin red or irritated.
The balance of exfoliating ingredients and hydrating ones ensures that this mask is gentle while still being effective. I can use this two times a week usually, or whenever my skin needs some resetting. I would rate this in my top four of acne-fighting masks I have in my collection. Some other options I love to use to combat pimples include the Sand & Sky Pink Clay Mask and the Zitsticka Killa Kit patches.
Goodbye Gunk: Tata Harper Purifying Mask
Tata Harper’s purifying mask is a natural clay mask that purges pores and fights free radicals for a complete pollution detox. Designed for normal, combination and oily skin types, it addresses pores and oiliness. Notable ingredients include star aster, to defend against oxidative damage and cell deterioration, white clay to absorb oil and dirt buildup, and papaya enzymes to clean and clear pores.
I absolutely love this clay mask. It’s unlike anything I have ever tried before! My go to has been Sand & Sky, and that is still a top pick, but this option from Tata Harper is not even a second – it’s more like an equal because it’s so different. It isn’t drying at all, despite it being a clay mask. When I wash it off my skin feels calmed and cool. The only downside is the small size – 1 oz – and the high price – $72.00.
Ending with Luxury: Hydrating Floral Mask
This Tata Harper mask will make you feel fancy! This mask contains 1000 sizes of hyaluronic acid to recharge dry skin, replenish lost moisture and deliver thirst-quenching hydration. It targets dryness, redness, dullness and uneven texture. In addition to their hyaluronic acid complex, tremella mushroom helps skin lock in moisture and support barrier function. Australian coastal flower brightens and evens skin tone and minimizes the look of redness.
This mask is high-powered for sure, and feels very luxurious when applied. But, this is the one Tata Harper mask that I won’t rave about. My skin feels nice – but I want much more than nice when I pay $95 for 1 oz of product. There are other hydrating masks that cost much less, for more product, that I find much more beneficial to my skin (such as the Korres Microbiome mask and the Sand and Sky super bounce mask.) I will always tell it like it is: while the other two masks are amazing and worth their price, this one just falls a little short.
I hope you’ve found this Tata Harper review informative. I’d love to hear if you’ve ever tried anything from this brand – let me know in the comments!
