Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex – To right your summer wrongs

With summer waving it´s Goodbye and fall slowly approaching, it is time to take a step back and face your summer sins. And I am not talking the one too many Mojitos with the cute guy at the beach bar.

Honestly, I am not. I am a married mother of two, things like that are completely alien to me.

No, I am talking the sun and the salt and the late nights out that result in a lack of proper skincare. And way too little face masks. These are the sins you will need to address, now that seasons are changing.

Breakouts and hyper pigmentation or dry patches and dull skin, both are possible. But fear not, there is a cure for every sin. At least in skincare.

The Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex promises to tackle   dryness and dullness, so let´s see how it performed.


What Tata Harper claims:

This concentrated face oil infuses the skin with essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants to transform dry, chapped irritated patches into balanced, radiant looking skin.



Prize and size

One bottle contains 10 ml and retails for 49 $ here. 10 ml may not sound like a lot, but my bottle lasted me for almost a year of using it approximately three times a week. The standard Tata packaging, green glass with golden writing is combined with a rollerball for convenient application.


Texture and smell

This is a rich oil. None of the lightweight, barely there oils, but a proper oil that you can massage into your skin. It does not leave a residue though and you need not fear for your pillow cases. The scent is best described as herbal. To my nose not overly pleasant, but what I would associate with a 100 % natural blend.

Application and effects

The rollerball makes for a fun and unique experience. I rolled it once across my forehead and each cheek as well as three times down my neck and then spread everything with my fingers. Now I don´t have dull skin, so I can´t tell how well it would work for that, but any (rare) dry patches that appeared on my skin were quickly gone after application and it left my skin soft and hydrated.


Favorable ingredients:

  • Rosa Canina Seed Extract: Rich in Vitamin C, combats hyper pigmentation
  • Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil: Hydrating
  • Olea europaea (Olive) oil: Rich in essential fatty acids, hydrating
  • Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) kernel oil: Anti-inflammatory, hydrating
  • Borago officinalis Leaf Extract: Rich in fatty acids, anti-inflammatory
  • Medicago sativa (Alfalfa) leaf Extract: Antioxidant
  • Sambucus nigra (Elderberry) fruit extract: Rich in antioxidants
  • Calendula officinalis flower Extract: Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory
  • Arnica montana leaf Extract: Anti-inflammatory
  • Tilia europaea (Linden) leaf/flower Extract: Anti-oxidant
  • Daucus carota sativa (Carrot) root Extract: Rich in antioxydants, Vitamin E and C, anti-inflammatory


Unfavorable Ingredients:

  • Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Farnesol, Citronellol: Potential irritants, all occurring naturally in essential oils


Does it live up to its claims?


It is concentrated for sure, as you only need the tiniest amount, and it is filled with antioxidants and nourishing ingredients.


Would I repurchase?


At the moment, my skin is neither dull nor do I have dry patches frequently, so I am not sure if I need it in my arsenal. But if that should change, and I am well aware that this might happen once the hormones have gone back to normal, I might reach for it more often.


Who do I recommend it to?

People that struggle with dull and dehydrated skin.

People that want to show the skin some extra loving after a sinful summer.

People with mature skin.

Frequent flyers. The small size and the rollerball make it a great in-flight treatment for your skin.

  • I love a good facial oil – and the rollerball sounds really interesting!

    I quite enjoy using facial oils but skin is neither dull nor dehydrated at the moment so perhaps not a product for me. Perhaps when winter is on full blast it might be a better option

  • This sounds lovely and right up my street, especially as you said, on my dehydrated skin days which, so far, have yet to arrive! I will have to try Tata Harper at some point, I might start with a kit, do you have any recommendation for me?


    • Sadly no. It is the only thing I have tried by the brand, and even though I have a few other things lined up that I want to try out I can´t really recommend anything yet.

  • Love how your reviews are always so detailed!


  • Crazy that it lasted for almost a year with only 10 ml, but love when one only needs a little amount of a product! Summer sin to confess is that I definitely didn’t use SPF everytime I was out in the sun, terrible I know! Especially since I wrote a post to encourage the readers to do so haha! Xx


    • Oh my, what a confession! I have been really good at wearing SPF ever since the first age spots started making their appearance…

  • I don’t think I would be able to use this oil as my skin barely tolerates those light weight oils. A heavy oil wouldn’t sit well with me.

    • It is definitely on the heavier side among the oils I have tried,´ so so no, doesn’t sound like it was made for you.

  • My summer experience: Pros, I did not sunburn my face. Just other parts of my body. Cons, I did not see the sun or the sand (or the cute boys with mojitos) very much. Oh well, I guess my face will thank me… I guess. Anyway, this sounds really great. I feel like my skin would love it in the winter, especially. Or travelling! The possibilities… 😉

    • The downside of work. I remember when I started, I was desperate about how little daylight I would get, being behind closed doors all the time. I got used to it eventually, but I do enjoy being on maternity leave so much right now, as I love being outdoors in the warmth.

  • The natural ingredients sound lovely and the rollerball would probably be fun to use. I actually don’t have any summer skin sins to make up for this year considering I was crazy vigilant about sun protection and my sheet mask usage has been at an all time high.

    • Applause for you then. I have been good about sun protection, but not so much about my mask regime. The move has gotten me off track, I haven’t even tried the masks I won in your giveaway yet!

  • It already feels like autumn here, I like autumn but the shorter days annoys me! How’s your France trip? I am so white, did you get some tan? 🙂 10 ml lasting for almost a year is pretty impressive, so paying that much is not a lot then. I should check out the new TBS masks, I haven’t been to TBS for quite a long time!

    • The only tan I got on my face is from my self-tanner. My body did tan a little, I guess I am slacking on the SPF front there more than with the facial one.

  • That’s a lot of uses! We’re having a resurge of summer this week and it’s hot! At least the nights are cool!

    • It is still very hot in Germany as well, but the temperatures are about to drop this weekend.

  • If I want to confess any of my Summer sins? I think I’ve been almost saint, lol!

    I can’t believe the 10ml bottle lasted you almost a year! It sounds like a great investment then and I like the sound of this oil, my skin gets dehydrated pretty often, especially during A/W so I might look into it. x

    • Yes, truth be told I have been a saint as well. Lots of SPF, barely any alcohol… I forgot my lip balm before hiking, which led to cracked lips, but other than that?

  • Wow it’s great it’s lasted you so long! The roller ball is handy for making sure you don’t waste any I guess! 🙂

    My skin is reacting horribly at the moment – with being so sick lately most likely – I do have a facial oil I’ll need to hunt out once things calm don face-wise haha!

    • Seasons changing and being sick is horrible for the skin, mine plays up whenever that happens as well. But after I stopped breastfeeding my hormones have calmed down and my skin seems to be back to normal now *fingers crossed*

  • I’m impressed that the bottle lasted you so long, but that’s doubly great, as it means that there’s no downside to the small, travel-friendly size! I’m quite oily, so I’m not sure if I would get much use from such a rich oil either, but it does sound like a worthwhile investment for those who experience dryness, even if only on a seasonal basis.


    • Absolutely. The rollerball is a great way to only use the amount of product you really need.

  • Oh I had WAY too much sun this summer. I always yap about how sun protection is important and usually I’m pretty good at following my own advice, but in Portugal I didn’t reapply sunscreen once. Only on hiking trips I reapplied but that was it…

    As for the complex, looking at the ingredient list it’s not for me.

    • Yes, practice what you preach is still hard to achieve sometimes…

  • Its impressive that it lasted long! Im very oily so I’m not sure this would be a product for me!

  • This sounds like it is very suited to my skin! xx


    • Have you tried Tata Harper before?

      • Not yet – I think I might buy a starter kit to try a few products xx

  • Denise

    I didn’t know Tata Harper, it’s new to me, and I would love to try it! I think the rollerball is great and that it lasts for nearly one year and that, using it 3 times a week, is simply great! Thanks for showing that, I liked the review!

    • Tata Harper make a lot of nice products it seems, I have to explore them a bit more.

  • Hanna

    Great review, and I just have to say I love your vlog –Hanna Lei

  • This product sounds like exactly what my skin needs right now; I’ve been pretty bad with my skincare routine this summer, and probably was out a bit too much. I love the fact that it lasted you so long and the rollerball format, of course. Seriously, I wish more products came with it – it is so convenient! Thanks so much for this review and have a great day ahead:)


    • It is the first time I saw the rollerball, and I am impressed with this form of packaging for a face oil. You really don’t waste any at all this way.

  • I thought about it pretty hard, but I don’t have any summer sins to confess… I’m kinda disappointed!
    I wish Tata Harper weren’t so expensive, as I love their Purifying Cleanser, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to repurchase it.
