Recently we had the pleasure of interviewing Madeleine Spencer who is part of the beauty team at Marie Claire, to get an insight into the world of a Beauty Writer and find out what products are in her make up bag…

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser

This regenerating cleanser claims to be the gift of great skin in a tube. It is marketed as a gentle, daily exfoliating cleanser that can act as a four-in-one product to purify, minimise the appearance of pores, improve glow and protect skins natural hydration balance.

This is a waxy, oil based cleanser and is based on the idea that oil dissolves oil, allowing ingredients like sunflower seed oil and wax derived from grapeseed and olives, to dissolve excess oil from the skin and remove any make up and dirt, without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Ceterayl alcohol and cetearyl olivate, two of the top ingredients found in this formula, are composed of fatty acids, which act as excellent skin moisturisers so allow the skin to stay hydrated and prevent it from drying out. Due to the waxy nature of this cleanser, we would recommend using a hot cloth or flannel to wipe the cleanser from your skin to ensure that all the oil is removed, rather than using warm water alone.

Willow bark is a natural source of salicylic acid, which is a chemical exfoliant. It works by disrupting the connections between neighbouring skin cells, weakening them and allowing the top layer of cells to be easily shed. This removal of the outermost layer of cells, reveals the newer healthier cells beneath, leading to an improved overall complexion and skin tone, giving us that sought after ‘glow’.

There is some evidence that the molecules found in pomegranate peel can act as an astringent, which would be able to minimise the appearance of pores, however, even after much digging, we were unable to decipher whether the pomegranate fruit ferment extract included in this cleanser would be able to do the same!
