This cleanser is divine: I mean it. If you told me that angels made it by crying into golden goblets, I’d believe you. It’s that gorgeous.
This is the first Tata Harper product I’ve tried and it makes me want to buy the whole collection. Which I won’t because I would then be completely bankrupt. Tata Harper is expensive. But somehow that’s okay. This cleanser feels extravagant, though in spite of that, I don’t resent the price. Since not only is this cleanser beautiful to use, Tata Harper as a company, are ethical, moral and care what goes into their products. They don’t test on animals; they’re environmentally sustainable; they use natural, high-quality, non-toxic ingredients; they make all their products on their own farm in Vermont and all their concoctions are 100% vegetarian. Tata Harper makes you feel like they really care. And I think mostly you get what you pay for. Producing high-quality components is a costly process.
I wouldn’t ordinarily have bought this cleanser because it contains ingredients which aren’t recommended for sensitive/rosacea skin types. Think Citral, Citronellol, Eugenol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool and essential oils. However, I received a free sample which I managed to eek out over the course of a week and because I had suffered no adverse reactions and enjoyed using it so much, I decided to bite the bullet and buy the full size. I find washing my face incredibly dull. It’s one of those mundane tasks like dusting or vacuuming that needs to be done over and over again. Imagine if you only ever had to clean something once and then it was clean forever! Luckily, this cleanser makes washing a luxurious, sensory experience.
Tata Harper Nourishing Cleanser comes in an attractive green and yellow box. I think Tata’s packaging manages to look chic, scientific and hippyish all at the same time. It’s aesthetically pleasing and tactile. Inside the box is a lovely, heavy, frosted glass bottle which houses the sumptuous oil. There’s a convenient pump on top and I find that one pump is enough to cleanse my face and neck.
One of the best things about this oil is the smell. It’s hard to accurately describe it, but it makes me think of lying in the sun, perhaps in a Rhiad in Morocco, drinking in the scent of citrus trees and exotic flowers. Now obviously you shouldn’t buy a product just for the way it smells. Well, actually I’ve got that completely wrong haven’t I, seeing as that’s why people buy bottles of perfume… My point is though that the aroma of this oil adds to the whole experience of using it. It feels opulent.
I would never use this as a first cleanse – it’s just too nice. After removing the bulk of my makeup/sunscreen with a first cleanse, I’d then take a pump of this and really take the time to massage it in. Facial massage is a pleasurable way of relieving tension in the muscles, bringing blood to the surface of the skin and alleviating stress. This oil lends itself beautifully for that with its luscious texture and exquisite fragrance.
After a good old kneading of my face I rinse the oil off with lukewarm water. It’s definitely effective at cleaning, because I can see the dirt in the sink as I wash it off. This cleanser doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry and tight, nor does it make your skin greasy or oily. Skin feels clean and soothed and the whole cleansing experience gives you the sensation of having been pampered and, as the title suggests, nourished. I don’t think you can ask for more than that. I think this cleanser would suit most skin types, but particularly dry and sensitive.
