I was recently able to a new line of products that I had just recently hear about, TATACHA Skin care line. They sent me a sampler set which included 6 of their beauty essentials and one pack of their blotting beauty papers. As soon as I received the box (which was only like 2 days later, if that) I started looking and reading all about all the products, I was like a kid on Christmas!!
If you haven't heard of TATCHA it is a beauty line I am excited to let you in on the best secret ever! Have you ever noticed how amazing Japan's geishas skin looks? It is so smooth looking, beautiful and looks like porcelain soft skin. Well, TATCHA noticed this as well and actually discovered the geishas 200 year old secrets from the oldest book written in Japan, it detailed the ingredients, extraction systems and rituals that were used.
The first item is PURE, One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
This is step 1 in the TATCHA beauty ritual. This stuff is amazing, seriously! I have never used a cleanser/makeup remover like this before. You start with this step if you need to remove your makeup or if you have very dry skin. You use 1-2 pumps and then you massage it onto your DRY face, then just rinse away with warm water.
I was absolutely amazed at how fast and easy it took my makeup off. I put it on my eyeshadow and it seriously came off onto my hand, it was crazy! The camellia and rice bran oils condition your skin, so it feels so soft. It doesn't feel tight after a lot of makeup removers make your skin feel. It also does not contain mineral oil so you're not left with a oily feeling.
I loved this and I will for sure be buying it again
Full Size 5.1 oz $48
(Formulated without: Mineral Oil, Synthetic Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, Sulfate Detergents, Parabens, PEG's, PPG's, Urea, DEA, TEA or Phthalates. )
The second step in the TATCHA beauty ritual is POLISHED, Rice Enzyme Powders
There are three different types to select from. There is a gentle, classic and deep. This is a daily exfoliant that doubles as a cleanser if you are not wearing makeup, it can be used morning and night. I only used it once a day, usually at night but I did try it in the morning before applying makeup.
To use this, use 1 teaspoon worth and put it into wet hands and rub your hands together to make a paste/foam. You need to have your face wet before applying, massage onto your face for 10 seconds - 1 minute depending on how deep of an exfoliant that you need or want. I usually left it on for about 30 seconds. Then rinse with warm water.
This is a water-activated enzyme powder of rice branm papaya + HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex.
When I have used other exfoliants or cleaners, my face usually turns really red. My face is pretty sensitive. I had ZERO irritation with the rice enzyme powders but they really do work so good. I was amazed that right after I rinsed, I could not see any of my pores! I would recommend this to anyone and I love that there are 3 different levels to choose from.
I will definitely be buying this. My skin has never looked better. I had a pimple, after applying this it was gone the next morning.
Full Size 2.1 oz $65.00
The gentle rice enzyme powder has licorice root to help soothe sensitive skin.
The classic rice enzyme powder has conditioning pearl extract for combination skin.
The deep rice enzyme powder has dokudami to help clarify active skin.
The RADIANT, Deep Brightening Serum Is the 3rd step in the TATCHA beauty ritual.
This is a hydrating and brightening serum that can be used morning and evenings. You don't have to use much of this at all, I just have used one small pump and that has been more than enough. My face feels so moisturized and smooth. This serum helps to prevent future age spots and clarifying existing age spots. Existing age spots will begin to lighten in 4-8 weeks of use.
This serum is so amazing. I have one age spot, its right by right eyebrow, I have had it for a few years and have tried lots of different products on it but nothing has helped. After using this for ONE WEEK it has already lightened up so much!!! I also have this spot on my forehead that is from getting sunburnt when I was younger. I got burnt there 4 times at least in a row so now I have a spot there that is probably 2 inches long and its just a lot darker than the rest of my forehead. After using this, it is almost the same color as the rest of my forehead. It says that you need to use this 4-6 weeks to see results but I have gotten amazing results in 1 week, I cant wait to see my skin tone get even more even and look better.
Full Size 1.0 oz $150.00
I actually joked with my husband when I saw the price of this before I tried it, I said "Would you kill me if I spent $150 on a face serum?" He told me no, not if I liked it. I said that I would NEVER DO THAT! Now I am taking my words back. I can not believe how much better my face looks. I think that this full size bottle would last so long because a little really does go a long way. If you have age spots or even red spots from acne or pimples that bother you, then I would highly recommend this even though it has a huge price tag.
The last step in the TATCHA beauty ritual is SUPPLE, Rich Silk Cream
This is an anti-aging cream that moisturizes your skin. To use, massage a pearl sized amount into your skin day and night. This cream absorbs into your skin quickly.
I am addicted to this moisturizer. I could not stop touching my face, it was so soft and smooth! I even made my husband keep feeling my face, he said it was so much softer. You know those lotions that claim to make your skin as soft as a baby butt? Well this one actually makes your skin that soft! It's amazing! You can also use this as a natural primer if you want to apply makeup afterwards. I know that a lot of woman are afraid to use a moisturizer in the morning because it makes your face feel oily when you apply your foundation, but I found that this helped my makeup go on super smooth. But I have heard that if you have oily skin it doesn't work that great as a primer.
Full Size 1.7 oz $150.00
I know another $150 product, but with TATCHA you honestly get what you pay for. These products last so long because you don't have to use much of the product every day. This moisturizer doesn't contain heavy oils that are going to make your skin feel heavy, it is a very lightweight cream that does what it should do!
The last item that I received is the PETAL FRESH, Original Aburatorigami blotting papers.
I don't have oily skin, but there were days when I was hot outside and felt like I should try these out. I was absolutely amazed the oil that it pulled from my face and didn't disturb my makeup at all! These papers are so pretty too! hey actually contain gold flake and you can see it throughout the papers!!!
Full size 30 sheets $12
They also sale bigger packs at cheaper prices
I love that the products don't contain mineral oil. I love the packaging and the customer service is honestly the best that I have EVER dealt with. They are amazing and I see this company just getting better and better.
