So I have been really wanting to try out the Tatcha range for so long, I recently placed an order from Sephora and thought it would be the perfect time to order some Tatcha items.
I ordered the bestseller kit and a full size of the luminous dewy skin mist as I was pretty sure I would love it.
The kit comes with Pure One Step Cameilla Cleansing Oil (25ml), Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder (10g), The Water Cream (10ml) and Luminous Dewy Skin Mist (12ml) it is perfect for if you want to try a few items out and would also be great for travelling.
The first time I used the Cameilla Cleansing Oil I was shook! This Cleansing Oil makes my skin feel super clean without feeling dry or leaving behind an oily residue like a lot of oil based cleansers I had tried. With other oil based cleansers they have made my skin feel like it has a thick oily residue yet dry at the same time (I hope you know what I mean!), the majority I had tried also made my skin break out but I have been using this for over a week and so far no breakouts. You would use this product by pumping out 3-5 drops depending on how much you need, I then warm it up between my hands and massage into my skin and it literally melts away all of your makeup, I like to give myself a little facial massage while using this. I then use a muslin cloth to wipe it off, it does recommend rinsing but I prefer using a cloth personally.
As luxurious as this cleanser is though it’s not something I could afford to add to my daily skincare routine as it is quite expensive compared to my re-usable microfiber cloth. I would re-purchase occasionally as a treat and now that I have tested it enough to check it doesn’t cause any breakouts I will keep the rest to use when my skin is feeling like it needs some TLC.
Next up we have the magic Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder, now I have been panicking about how I would describe these products to you because the way the textures change and your skin feels is something you really have to try to understand! Imagine trying to tell someone what chocolate ice cream tastes and feels like when they have never tasted chocolate or ice cream so you will need to bear with me! Tatcha recommend using half a teaspoon but I find I can cover my whole face with less. You should have wet hands and a clean but wet face and tip the powder into your hands, when you rub your hands together the powder turns into a creamy foamy exfoliator that is super gentle on the skin, you should rub it into your skin for about 10-20 seconds and rinse off, you will be left with super soft skin that doesn’t feel dry or tight. This product is easily one of the best exfoliators I have used as you can tell it works and exfoliates your skin but it doesn’t feel to harsh on the skin.
Now we have The Water Cream, I genuinely think this product is magic! When you first open the tub and take out some of the cream it feels like it is going to be a super thick luxurious cream but when your rub it into your skin it transforms into a super lightweight moisturiser that feels more like a gel consistency that doesn’t take any longer than 1-2 minutes to soak in with no residue. Although this is super lightweight your skin is left feeling moisturised and I feel like it has a cooling effect on my skin when I apply this.
Last up in the set is the ever famous Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, this is meant to be one of KKW’s favourites among a lot of makeup artists and beauty influencers… also quickly became one of mine! This skin mist leaves your skin looking gorgeous and glowy without being greasy or shiny, this can also be applied before or after makeup or could be spritzed onto your beauty blender (or equivalent) before applying foundation, you could go with all three if you want to be super glowy! I love this although I do apply this sparingly as it is quite pricy I don’t want to spray it the same as I would other setting sprays and go through it so quickly! I will also start only using this for special occasions and not everyday now I have fully tested this.
The bestseller kit retails for $60 and is great if you are looking to try out some new skincare.
