The Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser has cult status due to its unusual formula and fragrance as well as it’s ability to address a multitude of issues. It’s mostly designed for oily/combination skin types, but it’s a gentle and effective cleanser that I think could work for most, but obviously always patch test if you’re prone to issues/sensitivity. The Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser contains natural sugars, fruit enzymes and broccoli extract that combine to create product that deeply purifies, gently exfoliates and thoroughly cleanses – this works best as a second cleanse.
The Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser formula is fascinating; it’s a kind of creamy gel-based-balm that feels unctuous and rich on the skin with a little bit of a clay-like feel to it. It’s balmy enough to move around comfortably without any drag, but not so oily that it just slips all over the place without grabbing on to everything as it goes. It’s got a strong ginger fragrance that’s going to be a little divisive – some people will love it, others may not, I personally think it’s tolerable. What’s lovely about this cleanser is that it feels like it’s working in a similar fashion to a clay product – drawing out all the impurities and gunk – without the harshness that often comes with a clay-based product. Therefore, skin is left feeling really clean and cleansed, whilst also feeling nourished, hydrated and smooth. I would recommend using this in a typical balm-style cleansing fashion, by working it around the face, then adding a bit of water to thin it out, just to make it a bit easier to wash-off so there’s no residue. The Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser is £62 which is definitely at the luxury end of the scale, but if you’re able to afford it then this is a really lovely cleanser that’s unusual and beautifully packaged too.
