It’s a great time for beauty shopping. After a hard week I’m probably a little more excited for hopping than my wallet would like, but oh well. I have been really good with following somewhat of a budget and curbing my beauty spending this past year………pats self on back, but this is a sale I have been waiting for so I am splurging a little. TATCHA is a Japanese skincare brand inspired by the simplicity and rituals of the geisha. I discovered this luxury brand several years ago and have been slowly making my way through trying every product they develop. In addition to restocking my tried and true favorites (which I will list below) , I am using this sale as an opportunity to purchase some of the products that have been on my wishlist.
Since I love everything I have used from this brand it’s so hard to pick favorites. There are several items that have made my list of holy grail and things I have repurchased multiple time, here is a look at my ride or die TATCHA must haves.
Camellia Cleansing Oil($48): It took me a long time to start incorporating cleansing oils into my routine, but now that I have there is no going back. I faithfully follow the double cleanse method for p.m. skincare and although on occasion I will use a balm or a makeup wipe to remove makeup, cleansing oils are my favorite. The TATCHA One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil was the cleansing oil that changed the game for me. This oil is just pure perfection, doesn’t feel thick and heavy on the skin and effectively removes every single trace of makeup from my face including waterproof mascara. This oil emulsifies like no body’s business and washes off with effortless ease, leaving nothing but soft moisturized skin behind. I have yet to find anything that compares. I have repurchased this over and over and always have a bottle in my stash.
When I first tried this product I was intrigued by the blue color and the claims that the indigo was beneficial for sensitive, inflamed skin and those dealing with skin issues like eczema and dermatitis. Now I’m all for splurging on the occasional luxury beauty product but as quickly as I go through lotion I initially doubted that this would be something I repurchase often WRONG. My skin absolutely responded to this body butter in the best way and after the first jar I just couldn’t give it up. In the winter the skin on my legs flares up and get’s extremely dry, itchy and flaky. The TATCHA Indigo Silk Body Butter has been a miracle worker in soothing irritation and keeping my skin moisturized throughout the day. I use this more when the weather gets cold, but it’s another product that despite the price I must have.
TATCHA Dewy Skin Mist ($48): But Mercedes this is just another skin mist, they are all the same, NO they’re not. I have no idea what sort of unicorn tears Tatcha put in this mist but I have yet to find anything that compares. Hydration…..check, the most beautiful luminous dewy glow…..check, not sticky…..check! I promise this is the mist that will change your life, don’t try it if you’re not ready to fall in love. I promise once you get this, you will happily skip a few lattes to make sure you can keep this in your beauty arsenal.
If I had to narrow down my TATCHA loves to just three products those would be it. In true product junkie fashion I have to use this sale as an opportunity to move some item from my wishlist to my tried list and the following five products are making the cut.
1. TATCHA Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Travel Size ($68) My skin can be very temperamental and sunscreen is one of the things that sometimes sets it off. I have been on the hunt for a new sunscreen for quite some time and have yet to find one that I would consider holy grail. I have read a few good reviews on this one, with the sale I am going to take a chance on it. Anastasia from Glamorable reviewed it here and had good things to say, I trust her opinion so I feel less antsy about taking a chance.
2. TATCHA Camellia Beauty Oil($95): WHY am I sooooo addicted to beauty oils? My budget is screaming noooo, but the little birdie in my ear keeps whispering girl…..treat yo self. Normally for something this pricey I might tell that birdie to go fly away but this time I’m listening. I have a sample size bottle of this oil so I have used it before and it’s AMAZING. Sigh……..budget busted but I have no regrets, this is another game changer.
3. TATCHA Soothing Indigo Mini Set($54): I have used everything in this set with the exception of the Indigo Enzyme Rice Powder. I have used the other TATCHA rice powders and like them so I’m sure this will be no exception. This purchase is mainly to have a set of other tried and true loves to have on hand for when I travel.
4. Soothing Black Sugar Body Gommage ($74): I’m a body scrub addict, there is one in my shower at all times. Over the years I have found that I prefer salt scrubs to sugar scrubs, most of the sugar scrubs I have used have been hit or miss, the grit is just a little too fine for my liking. Since I am such a fan of other TATCHA indigo and camellia products I am making an exception to try this one. Scrubs are not usually something I splurge on so please TATCHA don’t fail me now, I’m going out on a limb and have a sneaky suspicion I won’t be disappointed.
5. Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer ($68): This moisturizer is supposed to be lightweight with a serum like consistency and suitable for oily skin. It has been on my wishlist all summer. Since I heavily layer my skincare I’m in the market for something a little lighter for use in the morning. I noticed a lot of the moisturizers in my current stash were a little heavy and more suitable for p.m. use so I’m excited to try this one.
