Review: Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex

It's hard to categorize this Tata Harper product. It's kind of a facial oil and it's also kind of a serum. It is composed of jojoba, olive oil, and apricot seed oil, along with all sorts of botanical extracts. I don't really know how beneficial those extracts are for your skin. An extract can be produced a bunch of different ways and the active ingredients that were in the plant originally may or may not survive the extraction process. I suspect a lot of the benefits from this product derive from the oils. It does work beautifully in plumping out the skin.  I apply it at night, on clean skin. I roll the ball (it comes in a rollerball applicator) all over the skin and massage in as best I can. I would not use this during the day because it does not absorb readily and the skin will feel tacky for a while. I shudder to think what it would be like under makeup. However, in the morning, my skin is soft, smooth, and glowing.
While I will probably use this up, I do not think I will repurchase. The applicator really bothers me. A rollerball will pick up skin cells, bacteria, and all sorts of other unpleasantness and then deposit in the bottle with your unused product. Yuck. Pretty sure I can find something with similar effect that has more sanitary packaging.
