Regular readers of my blog will know that I am a big lover of Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, which I first encountered around this time last year. It gives life to my skin by blurring and softening the visibility of fine lines and pores and generally makes my skin look like it has had an instagram filter applied. Naturally, I wanted to try some more products from the brand but they are unavailable to buy in stores in Ireland. When I was in the U.S. in June, the Sephora that I was in only had two products stocked (one being the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, which I repurchased) so I was unable to buy the products that I wanted to try. When my friend was in the U.S. last month, she offered to bring back some products for me (post here) so I asked her to get the Tatcha Bestsellers Set, as it would give me the chance to try a few products without breaking the bank and taking up too much space in my friend's case. There are 4 products in the set and I want to share my thoughts on them with you today.
Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil: This is described as a two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser. It is much lighter in texture than the Boscia cleansing oil that I use, so I did wonder how good a job it could possible do at breaking down my makeup, particularly my heavy duty eye makeup. To my surprise, this extremely gentle oil dissolves all of my makeup and leaves my skin thoroughly cleansed, but not at all stripped. In fact, it feels nourished and soft, making it perfect for winter when my skin is extra dry due to central heating/cold weather. I tend to use this primarily as my first cleanser, following up with a balm but if I had a larger bottle, I would definitely use it as my morning cleanser too. The next time that I have the opportunity to purchase some Tatcha products, this will be a definite repurchase.
Tatcha Polish Classic Rice Enzyme Powder: This product very much reminds me of Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant because it is used in the same way - a little of the powder is mixed with water to form a non-abrasive exfoliant. Unlike the Dermalogica product, I find that this is a little too harsh for daily use on my sensitive skin but I have been using it twice weekly and it leaves my skin looking very bright and even. Because I generally prefer chemical exfoliants, I would not be in a rush to repurchase this.
Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream: This was the product that I was most excited to try but it has disappointed me the most. It has a gel cream texture, which just isn't moisturising enough for my dry skin. After I apply it, my skin still feels like it needs more moisturiser or an oil - something to take the tight feeling away. I generally don't get along with gel creams but I think if you have normal or combination skin, you would like this but for anybody with dry skin, I wouldn't recommend. I wouldn't repurchase this but would like to try a different moisturiser formula from Tatcha.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist: You know that I love this product and if it was readily available in Ireland, I would use it not only as a finishing spray, but also as part of my skincare routine because with a quick spritz of this, my skin instantly looks healthier, younger, glowing and dewy. I am delighted to have this small bottle for travel purposes or just to have in my handbag for freshening up my makeup throughout the day if I am out & about. This is on my forever repurchased list.
This set is priced at $59, with a value of $75. I am glad that I bought it and had the opportunity to try some more products from a brand that I really want to explore more. I would love to hear if you have any Tatcha recommendations? Do you like skincare starter sets? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
