Well, as if you can’t tell, I spent this week acclimatising myself to the Tata Harper products I treated myself to over Christmas!  Inital thoughts are positive so far, extremely positive in fact, but I need a little more time with them before I review them in full.

I wasn’t too sure about the Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser at first, it’s a little outside my cleansing comfort zone, if such a thing could be said to exist!  It’s a lightly grapefruit-scented cream cleanser, which utilises enzymes and clay to cleanse your face, and it’s the one said to be most suitable for sensitive skin. It’s an unusual texture – completely unlike my usual (beloved) balms and oils – but it genuinely does clean the face, and I think it has a slight exfoliating effect, which hasn’t – so far – caused any irritation.  I wouldn’t use it for removing makeup though, I prefer oils for that, but for a morning cleanse, or a second cleanse in the evening, I really like it.  Now.

I was cautious about adding the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence and the Rebuilding Moisturiser, because the essence contains essential oils (something my skin always has a bit of trouble with), and because moisturisers are always my troublesome area, so I added them into my routine on separate days, seemingly with few ill-effects.  Overall, the introduction to a “proper” Tata Harper routine has gone pretty well! I’m heading off to Content Beauty this week for a Tata Harper facial, and I can’t wait!  I will, of course, report back.

On Saturday, I trialled May Lindstrom Honey Mud on Saturday, and again, my experience was a mixed one,  It’s quite sticky (and smells of chocolate, which I can’t bear at the moment), and I found my skin was a little “tight” after, but I suspect this was down to user-error than anything else.  It needs, for example, wetter skin that I am used to.  May herself was kind enough to comment on the Instagram post I put up with some suggestions, and I’m looking forward to using the Honey Mud again, with some more specific ways to use it.

What’s been on your face this week?
