I’m home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers – all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don’t know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I’m channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it’s damn near impossible for me to change the station.
Anyway, a few weeks ago, I caught a demonstration from a beauty brand I’d never heard of: Tatcha. Victoria Tsai, the brand’s creator, was talking about the inspiration behind the brand (ancient Geisha skincare traditions) and demonstrating some skincare products – and she had my undivided attention. And I’m not easily impressed. I was this close to ordering, but I’m sleep-deprived and ended up passing out before I got a chance to order. The next week, I was so preoccupied that I forgot about Tatcha – until they sent me an email. They offered to send me some products to sample. And after using them for the past few weeks, I am ADDICTED. No…seriously. I now have a legitimate Tatcha habit.
Tatcha sent me their Ritual Discovery Kit, to introduce me to the brand. The kit contains four of their core skincare products:
- PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
- POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder
- RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum
- SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream
I’m a busy woman and I like to keep my daily beauty routine streamlined. So if you would have told me that my morning routine would involve using four products, I would’ve rolled my eyes. But not only am I using these products faithfully every day, I actually look forward to it.
The PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is unlike any cleansing oil I’ve ever tried. I never cared for any other ones, but this I LOVED! It’s gentle yet effective, and removes even the most stubborn waterproof makeup. The POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder is water-activated and turns into a creamy foam that exfoliates without harsh abrasives. It doesn’t seem like it would be as effective as it is – because it doesn’t scratch or burn…but it truly delivers baby-soft skin. The RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum is probably my favorite product of the bunch. It hydrates while imparting an otherworldly glow. You’ll notice that glow the first time you use it. It’s absolutely amazing! Finally, there’s the SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream – the perfect facial moisturizer. It’s luxurious without being too heavy, and it has anti-aging benefits. It also smells heavenly (reminds me of Fresh’s Sugar collection) and doubles as a makeup primer.
Every time I use these products, it feels like a spa-like experience. It’s like I’m an esthetician performing a pampering facial on myself.
Watch this video and watch the magic happen. Peep the model’s face. That luminous glow and dewy perfection can also be yours.
Tatcha is available at Barneys New York, QVC and tatcha.com.
