Need It Now: Tata Harper’s Superkind Range

Every once in a while, we come across a beauty product that we instantly know is in a league of its own; exceeding our every expectation and then some, these attention-holders are so darn good we’ve come to sum them up in just three words: Need. It. Now. That’s it, that’s all it takes to let Team Cult Beauty know they’re in the presence of greatness: the kind of product we buy in twos so we don’t run out, the formula that our friends never hear the end of. True to the old adage, ‘good things come in threes’, Tata Harper‘s all-new Superkind range is one such release. Intriguing us first with talk of strengthening the skin barrier – a must in a time of {maskne} – this line scored full marks for its ability to comfort and restore sensitised skin to its former radiance.

In a time of face masks, evermore-potent treatments and pollution, our skin barrier is bound to be compromised, ultimately leaving it less equipped to retain moisture or protect itself from environmental aggressors. Enter: dry, itchy, red skin. It’s doesn’t have to stay that way though. Equal parts effective and gentle, the replenishing Superkind range is designed to comfort sensitised skin as it fortifies and rebalances your skin barrier (a protective ecosystem composed of the microbiome, acid mantle and lipid layer). Here’s how…

The {Softening Cleanser} is a supremely soothing formula that works into a luxuriously rich foam lather to effortlessly lift away the days without stripping your skin. How, you may ask? It’s designed with a ‘Constructive Cleansing Technology’ that’s made up of multifunctional cleansing ingredients and a nutrient-rich lipid complex that actually conditions your skin as it cleanses. 

Crafted with 28 high-performing ingredients, the {Fortifying Moisturizer} is an exquisitely silky formula that cocoons and replenishes compromised complexions with a hydrating veil that calms dry, damaged skin. It’s equipped with moisture-retentive polysaccharides that fortify the skin barrier and provide nourishment to delicate skin, as well as ‘Extremophile Endurance Technology’ that can filter allergens and shield your skin from environmental aggressors to help keep your complexion in check.

The creamy, gel-like {Radiance Mask} is powered by a delicate blend of mild AHAs that actually replenish moisture as they gently exfoliate to reveal a healthy-looking, radiant complexion. It’s also infused with sugar prebiotics to restore balance to your microbiome and a sugar carbohydrate complex to deliver intense, lasting hydration. Guess who’s getting their glow-jo back…

Still unsure if it’s right for your sensitive skin? Created with the mantra ‘absence makes the skin grow stronger’ in mind, the range is made without gluten, wheat, soy, and nut derivatives, fragrances, essential oils, and 85+ common allergens and irritants, so the formulas won’t trigger reactive skin and further compromise a weak skin barrier.
