I discovered this product father purchasing 'The Sampler,' which is a 2-week supply of Tatcha products. This is either the first or second step depending upon whether or not you use the camellia oil cleanser first. I use a Sunday Riley cleanser. Then follow with the Deep Rice Enzyme Powder. It's not only effective, but it's fun o use. You simply place a teaspoon of the powder in your wet palm, and rub your hands together until a lather is formed. It's very gentle, and my skin feels clean and radiant after use. Definitely the product I like the most from the entire line. A keeper.
I blame MUA because I think I discovered Tatcha through a banner ad. I tried the sampler kit and fell in love with this line. I can't really afford to but I did and this is my HG cleanser and exfoliator. Of everything in their line, I will buy this forever. This powder is so gentle and has helped my face clear up! The 'deep' has dokudami which is especially beneficial for healing acne. All of the rice powders have the HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex. You can read into all that fun on their site. It is so so gentle and my face is so soft and smooth afterwards. I use this morning and night but you only need a little so luckily, it goes a long way! I looked into other enzyme powders but all had sulfates. Everything Tatcha is made without Mineral Oil, Synthetic fragrances, Sulfate Detergents, Parabens, PEGs, PPGs, Urea, DEA, TEA or Phthalates (thanks, copy/paste!) This does such an amazing job of clearing my pores that I sold my Clarisonic. It's that good.
If you've a different skin type, there's also a Gentle and Classic rice enzyme powder. I use it to cleanse morning and night (at night, if I've worn make up, I start with the Camellia oil samples I'm still milking). You've got to at least try the two-week set. The customer service is exemplary- a little handwritten note with every order and amazingly fast delivery. Five stars, holy grail, will repurchase forever.
