There’s something about the smooth porcelain skin of the Japanese geisha that simply radiates beauty. But such smooth and perfect skin isn’t something most women have. So when a 200-year-old book containing the beauty regime of the geisha was recently discovered, Tatcha was created so that every woman could enjoy these ancient beauty secrets. I recently got the chance to review this luxurious natural skincare line for myself and I couldn’t wait to see what it was like.
The Tatcha system really is more than a product line. It’s a ritual and every morning and night when I used the products I felt a little more luxurious once I’d finished. The core system contains four different products: PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powders, RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum and SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream. All four products have an essential role in the system and contain their own unique ingredients based on the ancient Japanese secrets as well as an essential bioactive complex containing rice bran, red algae and green tea.
The first step to the system was the PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, which was to be rubbed into a dry face with dry fingertips for ten seconds. I’ve mentioned my frequent bouts of acne before and I have to admit I was a little nervous about rubbing oil into my face as the first step of my skincare regime. But the oil did an amazing job of lifting away dirt and makeup and because its application was immediately followed by the rice enzyme powder, I didn’t notice any flare-ups from my skin while using it.
