Until 2017, if you had asked me to voluntarily slather my skin with oil, I would have laughed in your face. After all, it had practically been ingrained in my head since my teenage years that oil was your face’s enemy, and a one-way ticket to breakout city.
However, after becoming more involved in the skincare world, I’ve quickly come to learn that face oils are no joke. Even still, I’m always a little apprehensive when trying a new product. And when I began my relationship with face oils in particular, I wanted to take things slow. So I gave it a try with an all-natural product: Tata Harper’s Beautifying Face Oil.
My skin is on the dry side, so I tend to lather on the moisturizers, which often makes my face feel heavy and greasy instead of dewy. But with one pump of this oil, my face feels moisturized and replenished. Less product and more results—could you ask for more?
Every morning, after washing and toning, I massage one pump of the Beautifying Face Oil onto my skin before moisturizing and putting on makeup. And after four weeks of this regimen, my skin is in the best shape it’s been in years. It looks brighter, more even, and, well…beautified.
Ringing in at about $70 for one fluid ounce, it isn’t the most affordable option on the market. But if you’re looking for a go-to, trustworthy skin-saver, or are new to face oils, you can rely on this product. And the confidence boost of seeing my skin glowing without a drop of makeup is worth every penny.
