Clarifying Moisturizer (Blemish & Oil Control Moisturizer), £116


If you’re prone to oily skin, you might find that some moisturisers only clog up your skin – leaving it feeling irritated and prone to flare-ups. Tata Harper’s Clarifying Moisturizer balances out the oils that cause blemishes with salicylic acid, while using superseeds to counteract redness. All ingredients are from natural origin (as certified by Ecocert Greenlife), while 63 percent are sourced via organic farming.
