Tatcha is a luxury skincare brand that takes pride in both the quality of their products as well as their packaging. Every item is elegantly wrapped to the smallest detail. I had never heard of Tatcha until one day, they exploded with much buzz in the beauty world. Tatcha derives from Japan where founder, Victoria Tsai, learned about geisha inspired beauty rituals from a modern day geisha, claiming, “less is more”. During the bi-annual Sephora VIB sale, I picked up a bottle of their most coveted skincare product, the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist (1.35 oz, $58).
What it does:
This travel friendly silky spray-on moisturizer can be used anytime for a boost of soothing hydration, resulting in dewy, luminous skin. It contains extracted whole plant green tea, rice bran oil and red algae. The specialized pump design allows for an evenly distributed amount of product that will soften and smooth, without streaking or disturbing makeup.
Any product by Tatcha has an incredibly luxurious look and feel to it. They spare nothing when it comes to the detail of their products and this skin mist exemplifies that. I love the sleek glass bottle of the mist and gold pump. The purple shade fades into translucent glass so you can note how much product is left when you begin to reach the end of the bottle. The gold pump creates an ultra fine mist, which makes application seamless and painless. I have been using the Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist and have instantly replaced it with the dewy mist by Tatcha because of how evenly distributed the product applies onto skin.
I know facial mists aren’t everyone’s cup of tea and that many see it as an unnecessary step. I completely understand this, however, I feel that this luminous skin mist is so much more than “just a mist”. I think of it as part of my skincare routine as it is ultra hydrating and keeps my skin feeling incredibly healthy.
This is a super versatile product; you can use this as a toner, moisturizer or my favourite way, a setting spray. If my skin feels ultra dry, I will spritz this on before makeup application, but on a normal day, I tend to apply my makeup and set it with this milky mist. The result is a radiant and luminous finish that keeps me hydrated and feeling like I’m having a good skin day. Don’t forget to gently shake before spritzing!
If you’re like me and have combination/oily skin, you know the struggle of finding mattifying products. Once you find a good mattifying product, you’re stuck with the issue of looking a bit flat with no radiance or depth to your skin. Using a dewy skin mist will help create a subtle luminosity to your skin while keeping it hydrated with natural anti-aging properties. I haven’t come across another product like this before and I am so happy I finally took the plunge into the beautiful, luxurious world of Tatcha skincare!
Absolutely – from start to finish, this product provides a feeling of excitement. The packaging is absolutely stunning and the application provides a healthy, flawless finish leaving you with the feeling of utter happiness.
