About the brand

Tatcha is a luxury beauty and skin care brand founded by Victoria Tsai in 2009. After suffering from acute dermatitis, Tsai traveled to Japan and learned classical Japanese beauty secrets passed down by generations that took a different approach to skincare.* Taking this "less is more" philosophy, Tsai employed Japanese and U.S. scientists to create its products. They are available online as well as beauty retailers across the U.S. *Source: Company website

The Silk Canvas Face Primer
1.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

I do not get the hype of this product. I have enlarged pores on my cheeks and have tried so many primers. Youtubers love this stuff and when Sephora was offering a free mini trial size, I jumped at the opportunity to try this. The trial package is absolutely ADORABLE! I have to use two primers for my pores: EL idealist pore minimizing skin refinisher under moisturizer and then Smashbox original primer before foundation. This is the only combo that works for me to shrink my pores. You can still see them, but the combo helps. Smell: the product does have a smell like a balm. It is not offensive, but I prefer no scents, but tried it anyway. I did one side of my face with Smashbox and the other with Tatcha. My pores with the Smashbox side looked better. I waited 5 minutes, then 10 minutes, then 15 minutes, Smashbox side still looked better. Even after a long day of makeup, Smashbox side looked better. PRO: cute container CON: expensive, so so on pores, has scent, weird container

The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser

I got a mini of this cleanser, which I've been wanting to try, along with a mini of the water cream, as a points perk from Sephora. I suspect the packaging of the full size is better - a pump rather than a rigid plastic bottle that needs to be squeezed to get the product out of a hole in the lid - but I had a heck of a time even getting out some of the product. The smell isn't very appealing but I can live with that. And the "gel" itself is nice and left my face feeling soft, clean and exfoliated, but the bits of scrub in it (I guess it's the dried and ground luffa fruit, harvested under a full autumn moon, no less - honestly, what a lot of guff!) doesn't do anything - it isn't fine enough, nor plentiful enough truly to exfoliate my skin (Clarins makes an exfoliating cleanser that is similar in that the exfoliating grains are a pain, rather than useful - insufficient in numbers or efficacy). Given the price point of this cleanser, I think it's disappointing.

Why does Tatcha have to be so gosh darn expensive??!! I love this, The Dewy Skin Cream and the Rice Enzyme Cleanser/Exfoliator but I can’t afford to own them all... So, I bought the kit that came with all 3 plus a few other items during one of the VIB/Rouge sales. It’s a good way to test out the brand but honestly, this cleansing oil is not worth the money for what it does. I found that I had to use about 6 or 7 pumps to get enough to do a decent job of removing sunscreen and makeup. Any less and it just felt like I was rubbing and tugging and my face, not really able to massage the oil in to break down the products I was wearing. It does work, and it rinses clean, doesn’t feel as if there is any residue left on my face afterward, although I do still follow up with a second (non-oil) cleanser. If money wasn’t a concern I’d probably repurchase this, but for now I will stick with more affordable cleansing oils and balms that do just as good a job as this does.
