 Tata Harper Fortifying Body Lotion on Belle Belle Beauty

If there is one area of grooming that I am lacking in, it has to be body lotion. Embarrassingly enough, I remember an elementary school teacher reminding me to put lotion on my legs – definitely a requirement in my super dry childhood home of Denver, Colorado.

Now that I got that little confession off my chest, I have to divulge what got me into the swing of things when it comes to the body hydration department. My adulthood spent in Tulsa doesn’t quite have the dryness of Denver but I certainly wouldn’t call it “balmy”. So lotion is a must. And bonus: as my skin ages, I can see improved tone and radiance with the daily application of lotion.

Well, get ready to bring that to a whole new level with Tata Harper Fortifying Body Lotion. Tata makes all of her products on her farm in Vermont and even grows a portion of her ingredients there. Her products demonstrate dedication to natural ingredients. But she never compromises on results and performance. No wonder a luxury store like Neiman Marcus stocks these beautiful potions.

While I have tried a lot of her skin care, this is the first body product of hers that I have tried (I am drooling over the body oil and will move mountains to get some in my hands). The lotion is packed with ingredients to strengthen and restore skin. My skin is left soft but not one bit greasy. And I honestly thing the moisture level is dramatically improved even days after use. The scent is herbal, spa-like and relatively strong. I love it but if you are sensitive, it is worth testing before purchase.

Partly because of the scent (it is strong enough to interfere with perfume and at the same time very calming), I apply to my whole body before bed. My skin wakes up with radiance, hydration and smoothness. Available at Neiman Marcus.

Samples generously provided by Neiman Marcus as part of the Beauty Ambassador Program, but as always, opinions are my own.

I have a confession. I used to be not terribly picky about mascaras. As long as I got inky black lashes, I didn’t really pay attention to performance. But as a diligent beauty blogger, I have focused on being hyper-aware of how a mascara performs lately. This post by Beauty Look Book captivated me with […]

Now in the full swing of summer pool weather, I am guessing that most of us have bemoaned somewhat uneven skin and maybe some nasty cellulite. And if you are beauty/skin care buff like me, you also know that there is no permanent at-home treatment for this nasty little feature. There is good news though. […]

If someone forced me to pick one skin care line for the rest of my days, Kate Somerville would definitely be a contender. Having visited her spa, used her products over a period of years and been lucky enough to meet Kate in person, I consider myself a “super-fan”. Things have been a little quiet […]

Without leaving our vanities, we can bring the exotic into our lives via beauty. So many of the international beauty staples have […]

I’m on this endless cycle of a couple gel manicures in a row followed by a break in which my nails heal themselves. While I don’t think gels are necessarily bad for your nails, for some reason, my nails become super weak after a couple gel manicures. It can be a necessary evil if you […]

The past couple of weeks, I’ve been turning in my tinted moisturizers and BB creams in favor of Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector. The reason this works is because of Kiehl’s gentle […]

My hair is getting crazy long and I just keep procrastinating my trims. With the growing length, I am often tempted to throw this mane up in a bun. But during a fun birthday celebration a couple weeks ago, a friend challenged me to “embrace the crazy” (my hair’s general state if I don’t dry […]

I’m in the midst of another hyper-pigmentation treatment and have been using some pretty hefty stuff to battle the sun damage that has returned with the summer months. While I am loving the results (more on that in a couple weeks), I have noticed that all the strong ingredients can leave my skin a little […]
