    I’ve recently got into natural products thanks to the great info I get on Well and Good on facebook. My skin can’t thank me enough!!!

  2. January 13th, 2011 at 9:21 am

    I’m currently seeking out better skin care products to improve my sad, winter skin – I’d love to try Tata’s line!

  3. January 13th, 2011 at 9:27 am

    Last year I finally got it together and started working out, really paying attention to what I eat and giving myself time which is not easy to do when you have a demanding job, children and a husband — but I haven’t looked into natural face products yet and this would really get me started in trying the Tata line of products!

  4. January 13th, 2011 at 9:29 am

    With babies in the house that constantly put everything in their mouth (yes – including licking your face and arms) I want to make sure they don’t ingest anything harmful. And these days you can find very effective and wonderfully smelling products you can feel great about!

  5. January 13th, 2011 at 9:45 am

    This year, I’ve been starting to eat organic and trying to take better care of my body. Natural ingredients are important to me because they make me feel much healthier, both mentally and physically. I would love to incorporate Tata Harper’s beauty products into my daily routine! I have very problematic skin, after years of acne and I know that natural products could also do wonders for my skin!

  6. January 13th, 2011 at 10:08 am

    With all the studies coming out about how ingredients in cosmetics and household cleaners affect not you but your future children, choosing products that are good for me inside and out has become even more important as I move closer to having kids. I try to choose natural and organic every chance I get.

  7. January 13th, 2011 at 10:14 am

    I found that all natural products work better on my skin. I have very sensitive skin and the chemical in other products irritate it. Also, why put something on your skin that you wouldn’t put in your body?

  8. January 13th, 2011 at 10:35 am

    when I was pregnant, I realized how important it was to use natural products on my face and body. And they work great and smell wonderful too! I’d love to try this new line.

  9. January 13th, 2011 at 10:39 am

    The skin is our largest organ. And we must take care of it – which means paying attention to what we put on it. I come from a line of skincare – not make-up – advocates (Hungarians). My great-grandmother mixed her own skincare products – from her kitchen -and I remember her, age age 85, having glowy, almost babylike skin…she taught us to pay attention to our skin and what we used on it, and that if we took care of our skin, we’d didn’t need make-up foundation. Or very little. I salute any product maker who makes it well. and good. lol. from real ingredients!

  10. January 13th, 2011 at 10:43 am

    Already a facebook fan! I am frustrated that I still have to use Proactiv because nothing else works! I go natural on almost all of my other beauty products. I would love to find an alternative that works. Or at the very least, one I can use part-time and use the non-natural only just enough to keep the issue away!

  11. January 13th, 2011 at 11:00 am

    Natural products are important to me because they make me feel better. Many of the foods I consume are natural and organic, however my skin care is not. The skin care regimen I am using right now is very harsh on my skin because of the constant breakouts I suffer. I haven’t changed my skin care since I was in my teen’s (I’m in my early 20’s now). I can see how damaging the harsh chemicals are on my face and would like a change.

  12. January 13th, 2011 at 11:08 am

    I have extremely sensitive skin, so I’ve found that anything but natural products will irritate it. I would love to sample these Tata Harper products, they look incredible.

  13. January 13th, 2011 at 11:10 am

    I have recently been introduced to safecosmetics.org but they do not introduce any actual products. Perhaps this brand is something that would fall under this category, I’m not completely sure. Nevertheless, would love to try them!

  14. January 13th, 2011 at 11:12 am

    I have been a running and spinning fanatic for a while now, but while I take care of my body, I have not taken great care of my skin. Skin care is one of my 2011 New Year Resolutions and I would really benefit from products as high-end and esteemed as Tata Harper’s!

  15. January 13th, 2011 at 11:22 am

    I am committed to exclusively using natural products not only for the amaing benefits, but because as consumers we need to control what we put on and in our bodies. I believe that giving my money to ethical companites that I can trust, I a am taking a small step to help break a hazardous cycle. Companies need to stop putting unnecessary and potentially hazardous chemicals in prodcuts, we need to keep our bodies and environment clean.

  16. January 13th, 2011 at 11:22 am

    we care so much about what we put into our body yet the skin, as the largest entry-point into the body, does not get the same attention. we’re so fortunate that there’s now more awareness about the benefits (and necessity)of using natural/organic ingredients on our skin and product companies are responding. real, simple ingredients actually produce results and i’m happy more and more people are recognizing that!

  17. January 13th, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Natural ingredients are important to me because they are better for my health and the health of our planet.

  18. January 13th, 2011 at 11:25 am

    I took well+good up on detoxing my beauty products this year and have been eying the recommendations on the site. These products are expensive, and while I’d like to support boutique and earth/health conscience products the selection is growing quite big (and expensive) so it’s great to have a group like the testers at well+good check them out. I’ve heard great things about Tata Harpers and would love to try!

  19. January 13th, 2011 at 11:27 am

    I’ve been taking more care to watch what I put in my body and as a result I eat a more clean diet. However, I have not done that for my ski yet though I know their would be great benefits. Would love to start with Tata Harper Products!

  20. January 13th, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Natural ingredients means more benefits to the skin and less harm to the environment. We have to stay in sync with nature to live in true harmony with the world and ourselves.

    My favorites are white willow bark and rose hip extract!

  21. January 13th, 2011 at 11:36 am

    I am so conscious about what I put into my body and that means what I am putting on my skin as well. Less room for future harm of myself and the enviroment and it really makes no sense not to.

    I have always tried to use natural products when the cost didn’t get in the way. It’s hard having to make decisions based on the wallet and not the will. Being pregnant made me think about natural ingredients even more bc I’m not only making choices for my body but for someone else’s as well. . and we know what goes on the body – goes in the body.

  27. January 13th, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Skincare is so important to me and so are the ingredients in the bottle. It’s amazing how much junk commercial products include which can actually create dryness or acne for my sensitive skin. I’d love to try this line and feed my skin products full of detoxing good-for-you ingredients.

  28. January 13th, 2011 at 11:47 am

    I am someone who is just starting to realize the importance of natural ingredients in beauty products. I try my best to work out regularly and put clean food into my body, so why not enter into the amazing world of natural beauty products too? This line of products seems like an amazing place to start!

  29. January 13th, 2011 at 11:54 am

    This year I am trying to eat healthier, exercise and make better decisions about what I expose my body to. Organic just makes more sense. I would love to try these products!

  30. January 13th, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I had the privilege of seeing Tata Harper speak – and testing her products – at an Organic Avenue event. The Tata Harper line smells and feels amazing and has fully peaked my interest in natural beauty products!

  31. January 13th, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    I can’t use any products that aren’t natural, because my husband gets migraines from any kind of synthetic odors… I’d love to find something I could rely on, before my skin dries up and falls off.

  32. January 13th, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Scanning through the ingredients list on the numerous skin care products in my bathroom cabinet it dawned on me that I couldnt understand any of it without the aid of a chemist. Cetyl-this, paraben-that, is this really going to help my skin? I’m going back to basics and the Tata Harper line looks like just the thing I need to help me on my way.

  33. January 13th, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Natural ingredients are so important to me because they are better for me, better for the planet, and purchasing them helps send a message to companies that still use toxic ingredients to change. I’ve had my eye on Tata’s line for awhile (so many glowing reviews ~ literally), would be ecstatic to try her line! Fingers are crossed!

  34. January 13th, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I truly believe that you shouldn’t put anything onto your skin that you wouldn’t eat! Why would you want your body to absorb a bunch of chemicals you can’t even pronounce! All of my skin care and body products are natural and I feel (and look) so much better for it!

  35. January 13th, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I live in New York City…the land of backfiring buses, gray snow and cold winter winds! As much as I love this town, I feel like my skin takes a beating whenever I leave the house! I eat well (and clean) and workout hard (hooray for Brooklyn Bridge Bootcamp!)and take care of my skin. But living in the highly chemical city – I would LOVE to try some natural and clean products. I know that when I eat well, I feel better – I am sure that would be the same with face products. Why didn’t I realize this sooner?!?! I love the idea of skin care that is natural and made in small batches (with TLC no doubt!). Hoping to try some Tata!

  36. January 13th, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    All natural is so important to me b/c I have sensitive skin & nose. I occasionally suffer from eczema & absolutely cannot tolerate heavy artificial fragrance. Plus I think it is so important to be mindful of our impact on the environment.

    For the past few years I’ve been steadily replacing elements of my skincare routine with all-natural, plant-derived products, and it’s made a HUGE difference. I’m now working with my skin instead of attacking it with chemicals (which always made my problems worse) and also benefiting the environment by not flushing harmful products down the drain! I’d love to try Tata Harper’s products.

  40. January 13th, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Wow, I clearly love the word “products”. Forgot to mention I’m a Facebook fan!

  41. January 13th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    I’ve always been conscious of my eating habits: what goes in my body. But I never paid much attention to what goes ON my body! Since skin is the largest organ, I’ve tried to treat it with a little more respect by eliminating parabens, non-organic ingredients and other unrecognizable, nasty things. I’ve started making my own toner, facial oils and bath salts, but I’m an amateur and would love to try these products!!

  42. January 13th, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    My skin is incredibly sensitive so natural products are of utmost important to me. I also eat a high raw organic diet and what I put on my face is just as important as what I put into my body. The skin takes in nutrients just as much as the digestive system so no use eating high quality food and then putting garbage on our skin :)

  43. January 13th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    I prefer avoiding toxic ingredients such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, etc.

  44. January 13th, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    thank you so much for the chance! I am a huge advocate for using organic/natural cosmetic products. People have no idea how dangerous the beauty products they use on a daily basis are. Reading about Tata in Vogue made me love her even more ♥

  45. January 13th, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I’ve been using natural products for a while and it does wonders for my skin! I’ve even got my friends to convert to natural/organic products as well! Not only is it good for your body, it’s also good for the environment. I would love to give these products a try!

  46. January 13th, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    Natural ingredients are important to me because the unnatural or, manufactured ones leave a trail behind that affects the very air we breathe and the water we drink.

  47. January 13th, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    What we are putting on our bodies is just as important as what we are feeding our bodies. I am trying to eat more organically, so it makes sense that I try not use preservatives in my skin-care :)

  48. January 13th, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    When I was a teenager my hairdresser asked me what kinds of products I used in my hair, and when I told her she was shocked, saying, “why would you want to put plastic into your hair!!. I’m so glad she said that to me because it got me thinking about what I put in/on my body! We are so often obsessed with facial features/flaws, and usually the products produced to “help”, end up irritating and damaging skin all the more. After visiting family in Greece a few years ago (where everyone has flawless skin) and seeing how beneficial simple things like sun, yogurt, olive oil, and even just taking a dip in the ocean, can really bring out skin’s radiance, I started looking for natural products that would do the same. There really aren’t any other products out there like Tata Harper’s, and I’d love to try the set!

  49. January 13th, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    I could use a LOT of help for my dry, winter skin. Healthy living is my passion. I do my best to take care of my body, but could use some directon about natural skin care options.

  50. January 13th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Truly natural and healthy skincare products are crucial because what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.=}

  51. January 13th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I’ve started switching out all my products for cleaner more people friendly ones. Current faves are alaffia and plain old organic jojoba oil for moisturizing, cleansing and conditioning..

  52. January 13th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Natural ingredients are imperative to living a healthy lifestyle. Eating naturally was never an issue, but I can’t lie, I owned a handful of beauty products that were not the best for my body. The book, No More Dirty Looks, was really a game-changer. Once I finished the book, my former body “beuatifiers” went out the window. I have purchased samplers from Spirit Beauty Lounge, which are awesome, but being a poor college student means I have to live within my means. This means using organic extra-virgin coconut oil + raw organic honey. No complaints here, just smooth skin! :)

    About two years ago my husband and I started trying to eliminate the many chemicals that are present in our daily lives. First we focused on food and household cleaning products, but recently I’ve started realizing that it’s just as important to use natural ingredients on the outside of my body as it is for the inside.

  55. January 13th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    It seems like more and more people are being diagnosed with cancer. It makes you wonder if the chemicals being used these days is the reason why this disease is affecting so many people. Cancer runs in my husband’s family and mine and we have started using natural products just for that reason. I started using natural skin care products a couple of months ago. My skin loves it and looks better too!

  56. January 13th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    I am slowly incorporating natural products into my life. I’ve been starting to eat healthier and to eat organic. My skin constantly is exposed to many chemicals in the air simply from living in the city. It really takes a toll on my skin and its youthfulness. It would be great to try out natural products for my skin.

  57. January 13th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    Natural beauty products are extremely important to me. My whole life, I’ve been allergic to most beauty products. I’d break out in rashes. I’ve even had a stranger’s perfume trigger a migraine. After I discovered this whole world of products that aren’t harmful, have no mystery ingredients and don’t make me hate showering- I’m hooked!

  58. January 13th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Pregnant product addict seeks natural, responsible, artisanal skincare for loving, therapeutic and long term relationship. Toxic, low quality ingredients and ineffective formulas need not apply!

  59. January 13th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    As a mom of two young children, using natural products and eating natural/foods is very important to me. I’ve slowly switched over all of our personal care products to more natural ones. Finding truly effective natural products for anti-aging concerns can be tough. I have sampled some of Tata’s products are they are fab!!

  60. January 13th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Using natural products do for the face and body what poetry does for the soul–it gives the face and body long lasting beauty and is a foundation for loving oneself through all the days of ones life.

  61. January 13th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Any one of us would be so lucky to win these products. I got a whole small set as a holiday gift and am loving all the products and the fantastic way they make my skin feel, with no breakouts. It is like feeding your skin something yummy and leaving it satisfied. Good luck to all!

  62. January 13th, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    Only put in your skin what you’d put in your mouth.
    The skin is the largest body organ and absorbs everything through the pores. So, instead of “nourishing” your skin with ingredients you cant pronounce and stuffing your pores with nasty chemicals, get a real meal for your skin.

  63. January 13th, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    One of the treats I enjoy most is getting home after a hard day of work and receiving a facial or massage by my fiancee. She’s a yogini and likes to use only natural products, I think It does feel different, and they smell great too. We’d love to try this new line!

  64. January 13th, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    I’ve been curious about this line for a couple months now, especially as my stash of both handmade and healthfood-store-bought products is dwindling. Impressed by a woman who seems to do it all in creating a successful, uncompromised line!

  65. January 14th, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    First of all, I LOVE this website! I am so excited and grateful for all of your information. Thank you.
    I read about this line on a wellness blog….but since y’all posted about it…I know it is the real deal.
    2011 is about learning to live authentically and naturally for me. Clean. Pure. Beautiful.

  66. January 17th, 2011 at 12:12 am

    What we do to the earth we do to ourselves…natural products are better for our bodies and the environment and in my experience, natural products give me better results!

  67. March 20th, 2011 at 3:47 am

    Love the look of dewy radiant skin, its youthful and a sign of healthy lifestyle. I nourish my body inside and out with Organics only :)

  68. October 15th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I made the switch from non-organic to organic skin products this past fall and couldn’t be happier with the results. My combination skin thrives from the daily use of these plant based products!

    What we put on our skin ends up in our bodies, wouldn’t you rather use natural ingredients that work in harmony with your skin?!
