Product Review : Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer

issue four : the magician

Sometimes we have to bite the bullet and accept the fact that our skin isn't always putting its best face forward and we simply aren't radiating that youthful glow. That 'glow-from-within' skin we all covert is easier said than done to achieve these day. What, with busy cosmopolitan lifestyles, living in pollution filled cities, air conditioning, indoor heating. The list goes on. (Unless of course you're lucky enough to live in a forest and nurture your face and body with the kisses of fresh air and soft water.)

There are times when you simply need a quick fix. As 'The Magician' issue is all about beauty hacks and illusions, it seemed a serendipitous opportunity to share with you the magic of Tata Harper's Illuminating Moisturizer. I recently used it as makeup primer to achieve a subtle glow to Ava's skin for our Simple Concoctions beauty editorial. 

Filled with delicious ingredients that not only provide an instant glow, it continues to work its magic throughout the day. Performing tricks like reducing the appearance of fine lines with its Dual Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, which provides hydration to the skin and together with Bamboo Ferment, acts as a moisture barrier protector which, in turn, leaves skin looking plumper and more youthful. The fresh smell of Roman Chamomile supports the feeling of inner contentment and calm. Let's face it, who couldn't use a little more contentment and calm in our lives?

If your skin is very dry, don't be afraid to apply your favourite moisturiser and layer this over the top as a makeup base as a strobe cream. It can also be used over makeup as a highlighter.
