Happy New Year! I’m so excited for this year and all of the excitement it holds: I’m getting married, making a change career-wise, and getting back into shape. I learned a lot about myself in 2015 and found a renewed vigor to go after my dreams and the things I really love. I’m starting off the year refreshed and would love my skin to match. So, let’s talk about a new resurfacing mask I’ve been enjoying from Tata Harper.

Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask is no stranger to the beauty world. It’s adored, and it deserves all of the hype. I’ve used it for years now and love it. It has a great jelly consistency, it’s pale pink, it smells delicious, it goes on clear so I can take my dog out to pee without looking nuts, and it gently resurfaces and clears the skin. I also love that it’s pre-mixed, so I don’t need to hassle with stirring a powder and liquid together and making a mess.

Due to the mask’s success, Tata Harper has released a couple different limited editions of these masks that have a little special something added to make them even more luxe. My skin loves honey, so I knew the Honey Blossom Resurfacing Mask would be the perfect limited edition release to try.

It has the same, lovely consistency as the original and also applies clear. Instead of a pink, it is a shimmery, golden colour thanks to the honey addition. This beautiful colour is probably my favourite part of the product. The creator, Tata, explains that her grandmother always included this honey in her skincare regime, so its inclusion is an ode to her family and this skincare powerhouse. It smells very similar, but with an added honey note, which I enjoy.

My main curiosity was how it performed in comparison to the original. Is it really necessary to pick up this limited edition? For me, the answer is no. I love a strong resurfacing product, and this one is gentler than the normal mask. It has a lot of moisturizing honey goodness, but that seems to replace the clarifying and resurfacing strength of the original. Plus, the limited edition is more expensive, and I don’t see payoff for this price hike. I would recommend this mask if you want more moisture and less skin brightening, but I would stick with the original if you’re in it for its awesome resurfacing powers.

I’ll still be using it though, despite not being blown away. It does leave my skin feeling smooth and soft just like the original with an added moisturizing punch. Have you tried any of the Tata Harper Limited Edition products? Did you have greater success with this mask? Looking forward to an awesome 2016 and writing more for all of you. I would love to hear what you’re most interested in and am going to focus more on posting beautiful green beauty pictures on Instagram. Thank you so much for reading and commenting 🙂
