For my latest brand review, I tested products from the clean luxury brand, Tatcha. From The Dewy Skin Cream that will give you beautiful, glowing skin to the well-known oil cleanser, I’ll be sharing which products are the best and which don’t live up to the hype.

The Best Tatcha Products

The Camellia Oil 2-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

This cleanser single-handedly changed my mind about using oil-based cleansers on my combination skin. It leaves the skin feeling clean, but not greasy. Also, a little goes a long way so don’t let the bottle price scare you. Get the mini bottle from Sephora if you don’t want to invest in the full size.

Best Tatcha Products Rice Wash

The Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser

If you’ve heard that you shouldn’t use scrubs but you still want to gently remove flakey skin, this is a must-try cleanser. The rice particles are so small you don’t need to worry about damaging your skin. It also has conditioning ingredients that leave the skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Tatcha Dewy Skin

The Dewy Skin Cream

Tatcha’s Dewy Skin Cream was an instant hit when it was released. This cream is rich so it is best suited for normal and dry skin types. If you are on the combination side, like me, you may want to wait until winter to try it. I loved how it made my winter skin look radiant instead of dry and dull.

The Water Cream

If the Dewy Skin Cream is a bit much for you even in winter, you should try The Water Cream. It has a lighter texture that makes it perfect for oily and combination skin. If your skin leans a bit more normal, try it during the summer when you need a moisturizer that won’t melt off your face.

Indigo Overnight Repair Serum in Cream Treatment

If you can only buy one thing from Tatcha, this is the product to buy. This night cream is the perfect balance of hydrating and soothing, without being heavy or greasy. Because it is a cream and serum in one, you don’t need to use any other skincare when you use this. That makes the Indigo Overnight Treatment a time and money saver.

Tatcha Radiance Mask

Violet-C Radiance Mask

Vitamin C and AHAs work together in this mask to brighten the complexion and erase fine lines. I love that the mask doesn’t dry down so it isn’t impossible to remove. It is gentle enough that you can use it if you have sensitive skin but effective enough that one jar will make a visible difference in your skin.

Skip On These Tatcha Products

Now that you know which products are must-haves, it is time to go over the products that I won’t be purchasing again. For each product, I’ll let you know why I don’t like it and what I would recommend buying instead.

The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder

My biggest gripe with this product is that it is a hassle to use. You wet your face, wet your hands, pour some of the powder into your hands, then you rub your hands together to create a gentle foam. While that sounds easy, most of the time it resulted in a mess of wasted product. Instead of purchasing the enzyme powder, just purchase The Rice Wash.

Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

There are two ways to use this product. You can spray it on the face to refresh and hydrate the skin. You can also use it as a setting spray over makeup. On my combination skin, the dewy skin mist is too heavy and greasy. As a setting spray, this does give a bit of a glow to your makeup look. However, I find it much too expensive to use it as a setting spray. If you are looking for a face mist, I prefer the Caudalie Beauty Elixer. For a luminous setting spray, I love the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dewy Set Setting Spray.

Overall Thoughts On Tatcha Skincare

I really enjoyed most of the products from Tatcha. With the pretty bottles and botanical ingredients, the brand knows how to deliver a luxurious experience. If you want to try Tatcha products, I highly recommend picking up a value set or some minis. It is an affordable way to try the brand before investing in full-size products. During the holiday season, you will find a ton of sets at Tatcha and Sephora. You can find mini products on both sites throughout the year.
