Tatcha Skincare: More Than Just Products

 Skin is the largest organ of the body and is what we display to the world. This means investing in the right products for your skin is not a luxury but a necessity. We owe our skin that much for the protective role it does to keep off bugs and other harmful things such as, chemicals from gaining entry into the fragile inner organs. Therefore, whenever you are out there shopping for products to maintain a healthy skin and look good while at it ☺, practice due diligence to ensure you get the right products for your type of skin. 

Further, it helps to know the story or stories behind those beauty and skincare products. One company you should consider for wholesome care of your skin is the Tatcha Skincare. Tatcha skincare range of products consists of serums, cleansers, masks and so much more. So, what is their story?

From a geisha to your beauty shelf

In most instances, it is only when one is faced with a challenge that they are able to think out of the box for possible solutions. This is the story of Tatcha. Victoria Tsai, the founder of Tatcha suffered from dermatitis. As she faced this problem, she became more aware of the importance of what goes into the skincare products. Endowed with a purpose and decade old experience working with large corporations, she headed to Japan to seek out a holistic approach to skincare. 

An engagement with a geisha revolutionised her thinking. She learned time-tested skincare secrets passed from the ancient Japanese. Of course these were all documented in a guide. This special guide is the cornerstone of Tatcha. Armed with the magical ingredients, she sought out modern scientists to put in the modern technologies to ensure maximum efficacy and safety. As a result, Tatcha collection of skincare products is unveiled. 

In addition, the story goes beyond beauty. From all the purchases, a percentage goes towards funding of underprivileged girls education in Africa and Asia. Such stories are inspirational and show a company’s values and beliefs that are more than skin-deep.  

The products

Tatcha skincare products are inspired by ancient Japanese beauty and skincare rituals. Therefore, if you seek that line of products you may consider Tatcha. The products are categorised for each skin type including the sensitive skin. Besides manufacturing products for the regular skin, the company also has products for problematic skin conditions such as eczema, hyper-pigmentation and enlarged pores. 

The ingredients mostly comprise natural herbs and plants and their derivatives. For example, some of the ingredients used in Tatcha products are green tea, peony and pearl. Green tea extracts are known for the anti-aging properties because they are rich in anti-oxidants. Peony is a beautiful flower that has been hailed for its superior anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting and moisturising advantages. These are the ultimate skincare properties that everyone would wish for. The cherry at the top has got to be the pearl. For a porcelain-like and glowing skin, the pearl’s ground powder contains minerals and amino acids that reinforce the natural collagen for a replenished and firm skin.

Mini review

After years of buying and trying every moisturiser out there, this one is like no other. A super gentle yet nourishing gel moisturiser that literally feels like water on the skin - no stickiness, or heaviness!  and absorbs instantly. 


                   Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil  $70 - 

                   Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil $70 - 

This is in my top two ever... I have tried over 10 cleansing oils in my life and I find this one is perfection, removes excess oils, mascara, stick foundation and doesn't leave a film on my skin. I also love the packaging.


                             Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist  $70 - 

                            Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist $70 - 

I use this in my skin care regime and also after I have applied my makeup. The spray is so light so you aren't left with little wet patches on your skin. Gives me such a dewy complexion with or without makeup.


                                         Tatcha The Essence  $138 - 

                                        Tatcha The Essence $138 - 

Highly recommended, leaves my face feeling intensely hydrated. It doesn't have a strong scent at all. I like to apply it after I get out of the shower and before I apply my water cream. I have seen a change in my skin, the clarity on my cheeks and defused redness from my rosacea, overall giving my skin that healthy glow. I would definitely repurchase.

Y Theorem Repair Light Serum NAC Y2

This product is great for everyone, especially those who have just had aggressive facial peels and laser treatments. This serum has a very thin consistency that absorbs into the skin almost immediately. Just to note, I used all these products in my review in conjunction with one an other. After 3 days I noticed my skin looked brighter and clearer, the redness on my cheeks and towards my jawline looked more diffused, exactly what I'd like to see happen to my redness. 


Cryo Activating Hydra Gel

I only had a small sample pot of this product but I found a little went a long way. So I was able to use this for weeks on end. This product has a light cream consistency and is milky in colour. When applying to your face, the first thing you notice is it is so cold on your skin, so I found it to be really refreshing and cooling on my rosacea. Every evening when I applied this gel I would notice my skin appeared to look like it had no signs of rosacea at all. This product is also very hydrating, I had no signs of dehydration when I wore this on my face. 

Daily Orbit Energising Essence NAC Y2

I used this product after cleansing my skin with a cotton pad, it instantly makes my skin look fresh, I then follow with the Y Theorem Repair Light Serum NAC Y2. It has a slightly thicker consistency than your average toners, but that definitely isn't a negative point, just an observation. This product didnt irritate my skin, or cause flushing to my rosacea. Overall a lovely essence that gives life back to your skin if your looking a little dull.
