This small but mighty treatment has become one of my new favorite things. Add this onto the list of Tata Harper products I really enjoy. This is a serum-oil housed in a little glass tube with a rollerball applicator. The instructions actually say to apply this over all your products as a protective hydrating boost.
While that method is totally effective, I prefer this underneath a moisturizer or thicker oil. The texture is really quite thin, but not watery. As far as oils go, it's more on par with Nude Rescue Oil or Dr. Dennis Gross Triple C Oil when discussing texture.
The application method is fantastic - it's amazing for travel or if you don't have much time to get ready in the morning / evening. It provides almost immediate glowy dewiness to the skin. You'll look fresh faced in an instant.
Replenishing Nutrient Complex acts like a multivitamin for the skin. The weightless blend of biocompatible micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals provides your daily dose of environmental protection. Helping to relieve and stabilize irritated or chapped skin, it leaves the complexion smooth, moisturized, and radiant as can be. The formulation is powered by 17 high-performance ingredients, including arnica, which soothes skin and reduces the appearance of inflammation and redness; alfalfa, which oxygenates the skin and helps nurture with vitamins; jojoba oil, which provides nutrients and fatty acids to moisturize and help give a soft look to the skin's texture; and rose geranium, which improves appearance of skintone.
The idea and intention of this product is fantastic. It's an antioxidant rich oil-serum, but I don't know about being great for "chapped" skin. That's when I reach for a balm. This can be nice for inflamed skin or dry patches, but only to a certain extent. With that said, if you feel your facial oil isn't giving you enough 'oomph,' this may come in and boost things up.
