I blame Kat. She had been raving and raving about Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Serum in one of our team meetings. “Guys, I use this instead of foundation!!” she gushed. I’ll admit — that got my attention. I mean…instead of foundation? That is one bold statement. I stared at her, eyes narrowed, leaning close to the monitor, inspecting her face through Zoom.
Annoyingly, it is flawless.
Kat, naturally, is young and beautiful. Of course she can get away without foundation! But that’s gotta be due to good genes and youth, right? NOT the serum.
“I have been a Tata Harper groupie for years now, and fell in love with their products after I purchased their daily essentials kit. The kit includes most of my absolute favorites and is a great introduction to the brand. Anyways onto my holy grail: the Resurfacing Serum. This serum has completely replaced my foundation and is the all I wear on a day to day basis. It brightens my skin and gives the most luxurious glow. It’s full of AHAs, BHAs and vitamin C. Tata Harper products are most certainly an investment, but I cannot recommend their brand enough! It’s my absolute favorite organic beauty brand, and every single thing I have ever tried from their line has felt amazing on my skin.”
A few weeks later, Laura was gushing. After Kat’s convincing testimony, she also purchased the resurfacing serum. Which is, BTW, $88. And yes: Laura also stopped wearing foundation (just a little concealer under her eyes and around her nose).
“I wear this gorgeousness everyday and wear zero foundation (just some Nars under eye concealer and a bit of creme blush from Wander Beauty.) I can’t tell you exactly what this serum does, but it makes my skin smooth and glowy. It’s an investment, yes, but you really only have to use one little pump per application, so even with daily wear it lasts me a few months. I will always have this on hand forever!”
Soooo…I tried it.
And…OK. It is really, really good. But am I skipping my foundation completely?
To be honest, I totally get Laura’s approach, of just a bit of concealer around the eyes and nose. Personally, I’ve been following the resurfacing serum with Supergoop’s Glowscreen and have been happy with the results. Glowscreen is another product that *could* be a foundation replacement, but is a bit too sheer on its own. But when I use these two in tandem…it gives a natural, glowy look to basically no-makeup skin.
But my holy grail? On those days when I do want a little more coverage? I start with the Tata Harper Resurfacing Serum…then I mix a little Glowscreen with Nars’ tinted moisturizer. The result is flawless, sheer, natural coverage that makes me look shockingly young and glowy.
I mean…not Kat young, but…younger. Or maybe just happier. Whatever — I’ll take it.
Ok Kat — you win. We all love this stuff.
