Today, let’s talk about Tata Harper’s famous “cupping facial”.
This article is NOT sponsored (although I would have liked to have been paid for free facials).
I did the famous Hydrafacial treatment, very well known in North America at etiket in Montreal, and I discussed it at length with my esthetician. I told her about my interest in facials at Tata Harper’s institute.
She told me that she used to work for a Tata Harper spa on an island in the Bahamas. I jumped at the chance to book a treatment with her because I know she has been specifically trained in Tata Harper’s techniques. And that the same treatment would have cost me twice as much in Paris or in the United States.
The second reason why I’m doing facials right now is that it’s the only time around the world when the sun isn’t there. This allows me to opt for a few more exfoliating treatments (like the hydrafacial, or a gentle chemical peel) and erase the unwanted traces (brown spots) of my mini roadtrip in the desert 6 months ago.
For those who don’t know the Tata Harper brand: it’s an organic brand, super expensive, created by a Colombian woman. adored by stars and women’s magazines. The brand is starting to be distributed in France. The products are expensive because not only are they organic, but they also contain a multitude of active ingredients. The founder of the brand, with her baby skin, perfectly represents the quality of her products. And the beauticians of the brand also have beautiful skin.
Cupping Facial: How the treatment works
A real anti-aging treatment for the face, neck and décolleté. This sumptuous treatment combines the best of green beauty with traditional facial massage techniques using suction cups. These techniques help to instantly revitalize the skin while providing both firming and lifting effects for the face, neck and décolleté. 60 minutes | $175
As the Hydrafacial treatment is only 100% hi-tech, without massage, I specifically requested, for this 2nd treatment, a formula more centered on massages. My esthetician suggested Cupping Facial, centered on lymphatic massage, to release the tensions in my jaw and help the skin to get rid of toxins more easily.
- We start with make-up removal, cleaning, physical exfoliation.
- A moisturizing mask follows, during which I am treated to a divine arm massage.
- This is followed by another moisturizing mask, which serves as a base for the massage. The massage is done with the suction cups, and also with a roll-on… and hands of course. It lasted a very long time, which did me a lot of good because, according to the beautician, I had a lot of tension.
- We ended with the meticulous application of a serum, a day cream, an eye cream, a tinted lip balm and a sun cream.
All the products applied on my face are of course from Tata Harper. Each product has its own scent, it smells either leaves or flowers, it’s super pleasant. The masks, cleansers… are removed with a hot towel (I love it!) and at one point, she psschitched me a rose water toner that smells divine. I think that aromatherapy should also be part of the brand’s DNA.
As I already had spectacular results with the Hydrafacial 2 weeks ago, the Tata Harper treatment did not transform my skin in a day.
It especially relaxed my neck, shoulders and jaw…. It is very comparable to the effects obtained with the kobido massage that I like so much in Paris. I think that people with more wrinkles than me will see the lifting effect.
In any case, for several days after the treatment, I continue to have a glowy, plumped skin and an even complexion.
In short, it’s a treatment that I recommend to all fans of the Tata Harper brand, to try at least once in a lifetime.
This treatment remains expensive compared to other facials, but compared to other Tata Harper spas in the world (which are in 5 star hotels…), the treatment offered here in Montreal remains accessible: The “Cupping Facial” treatment cost me 200$CA (tax included, excluding tips) or 150€ for 60 minutes
