Concentrated Brightening Essence

As a 57-year-old woman who has suffered from cystic rosacea for 17 years, my skin is very scarred and has overall hyperpigmentation and brown spots. My dermatologist initially suggested laser treatments to resurface and even the tone but has now determined that my skin is too fragile and I will end up "a bloody mess" if we pursue this course. The worst aspect of this situation is that my skin is too sensitive for makeup, so I can't hide behind even the most gentle foundations and powders. Over the years, I have literally spent thousands of dollars on products promising to brighten my skin - none of them worked, and many made the problem worse. This past year, one of the medications I am taking to treat another health issue has (miraculously) cleared the rosacea - no more cysts, but the scarring and uneven skin tone remain. I recently received a sample of a Tata Harper product in a Saks beauty promotion and, unfamiliar with the brand, checked out the website. After spending almost two hours watching the videos and learning about each product, I ordered the Concentrated Brightening Essence - it seemed to address all my issues, and I would certainly know whether or not it was working before I had used more than half of it. I have been using it for a little over a month now and cannot believe the change in the texture and color of my skin! It is firm, soft, smooth, and feels "protected." The scent is clean and fresh, and my skin actually glows beneath the thin layer of powder foundation I can now wear. If you think you have tried everything and are at the end of your rope, please please please give the Brightening Essence a try. It has restored my self-confidence, and I feel good knowing I am doing something healthy not just for my skin, but for my whole life. Thank you, Tata Harper - I look forward to trying more of your products and will encourage my friends to do the same! « less

Worth EVERY Penny!

(Insert Long Sigh)... I wish I could deliver the bad news of disliking this, ONLY because of that price, but unfortunately my Sephora friends, I CAN NOT! This stuff is AMAZING. I purchased this from Tata Harper November 2018. Back then I believe it was $190, I had a discount code and ended up paying about $165. I attached a photo to show how much I have left(about half), however I tried to indulge in this slowly but I find that I reached for this more often than the other essence I own, which is Caudalie Vinoperfect Glycolic Brightening Essence. (The two are NOT to even be compared. It’s like apples and oranges) Matter of fact, I haven’t found another essence that have compared to this one. It’s much thicker in texture than your normal watery type essence. It has a light lemon scent that disappears once applied to the skin, doesn’t burn, or cause any irritation or breakouts. It is a little tacky once applied to your skin and dries down, not overly sticky, but you definitely know and can tell that something was applied to your skin. Like, immediately once applied my skin looks dewy, hydrated, and is glowing! My serums and anything after soaks in better and it seems like it brings out the potency of those products more. I can honestly say this has also brighten some of my dark spots. Other than the brightening effect, hydration, and glow, this essence makes my skin look overall healthy and refreshed. I can do the bare minimum, just wash my face, tone and then splash this on and my skin will look so clear and refreshed. It really does everything it claims to and more. FYI, the shelf life says 6mos and clearly it’s going on a year now that I’ve had mines. It has darkened in color but I still see the same great results after using it soooooo I’m going to ride it out! I do keep it in my bathroom away from direct sunlight, but just keep in mind that shelf life if you decide to dish out all those coins for this. Definitely use it before you loose it! ;)

Just not worth the price

I know this has great ingredients but to me this did not deliver the hydration it promised. I have combination skin that gets oily in the summer and dry in winter. My Husband purchased this for me and I used it all because I wasn't going to waste the ridiculously expensive product he got me. It was like any other face mist except I wont lie it didn't irritate or burn my skin which usually happens in winter and also in general with anything floral. Would I buy this nope, would I use it if I got it as a sample or if someone else bought me one, sure!

This stuff rocks! As I've

This stuff rocks! As I've gotten older, my skin has gotten splotchier and redder. After trying a sample of the Concentrated Brightening Essence, I knew I had to purchase the full size. First off, the scent is fantastic. Second, I love the texture. It's like splashing fresh spring water on your face. Unlike a lot of heavy creams or oils, this water-like product just disappears into my skin. My pores are smaller and my wrinkles less noticeable. Plus, the bottle last forever! A true spa experience in a bottle.
