I'm not quite sure how to define Tata Harper's Concentrated Brightening Essence. To describe it as a toner-serum hybrid would be reductive – it's a product unlike any other. And one, I imagine, that will spawn many imitators.
Made from a blend of plant-infused waters, clinical-grade essential oils and botanical extracts (including daffodil bulb which is known for its chemopreventive properties), the effects of the essence are both immediate and cumulative; skin looks brighter immediately but with consistent use dark circles and pigmentation will be appreciably less noticeable.
I use it in the morning, after cleansing and toning but before I apply serum and moisturiser. I find it's particularly effective after exfoliation and if I have a blemish, I dab a little on with a cotton bud to take the redness away. It's lightweight, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types. I can't recommended it enough.
