Product of the Week: Rejuvenate, Reawaken, and Re-Glow with Tata Harper’s Beautifying Face Oil


Given our history in beauty editorial, and as a card-carrying member of the beauty-product obsessed, when it comes to trying new products, we have zero tolerance for ineffectiveness. If it doesn’t work literally overnight—or soon thereafter—we’re probably not sticking around to see how long it takes.

So when we added Tata Harper’s Beautifying Face Oil to our nightly regimen and woke up with what looked like new skin, we were impressed (to say the least).

We’d been struggling with hydrating our adult-onset-acne-riddled skin (can we get a collective, WTF?!), had recently gotten the breakouts under control and were apprehensive about adding an oil that may trigger another ridiculously embarrassing episode. (This just shouldn’t be happening in one’s 30s, guys. It’s cruel.)

Not only did the oil NOT break us out, but it helped HEAL the skin, diminishing inflammation and minimizing the size and pigment of our existing dark-spot scars. Hallelujah.

Chock it up to the arnica and calendula ingredients for their anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, while brown algae extract revitalizes dulled skin and camellia flower oil offers some serious moisturizing.

Needless to say, this product has now taken up permanent residence in our daily routine. At night, we add 2 to 3 drops of the oil to one pump of Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer. During the day, we keep it to 1 or 2 drops mixed into the pump of moisturizer, so as not to overload our acne-prone skin.

What we absolutely LOVE about Tata’s products is that they are 100% natural and nontoxic, BUT they’re still very effective. We’re not sacrificing anything here, and, really, how often does that happen in life?

Every product is made on-site at her Pinterest-board-worthy farm in Vermont, where ingredients are handpicked and harvested to yield the highest concentration of skin-saving goodness.
