I’m pretty attached to my Ole Henriksen Aloe Vera Gel Cleanser and I’m not really interested in replacing it. But, I do occasionally use an exfoliating cleanser in the mornings when I notice my skin is a little drier and I’m getting any flakes. I got a sample of the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser in my little beauty bag from Sephora so I thought I’d give it a try. The main draw from the packaging was that it “helps dissolve debris and blackheads”. I have the most persistent blackheads on my nose, they aren’t huge, but I want them GONE. The consistency is one of a typical creamy cleanser except that it has tiny physical exfoliants. The instructions say to massage into skin to activate the enzymes. I did spend a good minute with it before rinsing off my face. Pros:
- It smells really nice, citrusy and sweet.
- My skin has never felt SO soft after using this type of exfoliator. I felt like my makeup applied so much more smoothly after using it.
- It’s pricey ($38).
- I didn’t notice a huge brightening effect.
This was a winner for me. As I was rinsing my face I actually had a ‘wow’ moment. Like, ‘wow my face is as soft as a baby’s bottom’. It’s hard to speak to the claims of minimizing pores and blackheads after just using a sample size, but I’m sold enough after using it for just 4 days to find out. I’ve already ordered it from Sephora since they don’t carry it in-store yet, I’ll update on the pores and blackheads situation after I’ve had more time with it.
