What a difference!

I've been using this in combination with the purifying mask and I really think they have made a different in my pore size. The results have been amazing. I've always struggled with clogged and visible pores, but these two products have really helped to deep clean my pores.

I mean...it's Tata!

Beautiful cleanser. I use it as part of a double cleanse during my nighttime routine and I absolutely love it. One thing I have struggled with for Tata's cleansers is that they are all suppose to be used on dry skin...which is fine but different than what I'm used to.

Another great cleanser

I have tried the clarifying cleanser and also the refreshing cleanser. I am 53 years old and lately have been having issues after being diagnosed with mild rosacea and suffering hormonal breakouts. The clarifying cleanser does a great job of clearing the skin but can be a little harsh, the refreshing cleanser is a daily cleanser which although I had no issues with, is my least favourite of the three as Ididn’t really see of feel any advantages. I decided to try out the purifying cleanser as my skin was just not clearing up and repairing. I have been using for a week and I really like it. My skin is finally starting to clear. It makes your skin feel cleansed but soft and the redness I suffer with is calmed. So glad I tried this one.

This cleanser smells nice. I've used samples periodically and enjoy the change. This full size was purchased for my 12 year old son. He has been using the clarification but has issues with blackheads. We thought this might help. I can't say I see a huge difference in the blackheads but it does cleanse his face nicely. Hopefully in time we will see the blackheads diminish.
