Tatcha Skin Care

Finally, I’ve gotten my hands on some Tatcha products.  I’ve been wanting to try this for a while.  I had previously gotten a sample of the moisturizer from Sephora and enjoyed using it for the two or three days that I could get out of it.

Sephora has gotten in Tatcha’s Best Seller Sets of four products for a very good price.  The box set alone was the cost of what one item could cost you, so I was extremely excited.  I believe the set was about $60. I would say the size of the products were about 1/2 the size of the full product.  Not a sample size, so it’s a really good buy.  Now, I wasn’t sure how Tatcha products would work on dark skin, but that never deters me from trying anything out, so here are my opinions.

The box set contains their Pure Camellia Cleansing Oil, Polished Rice Enzyme Powder, Supple Moisture Rich Cream, and Luminous Dewy Skin Mist.  I was most excited to have the Dewy Skin mist because I had tried that out in the store several times, but I found another couple of gems in this set.

My favorite product is actually the Polished Rice Enzyme Powder.  I would have never thought I would enjoy washing my face with this product as much as I do.  I just thought that it would be a little scratchy and drying, but it’s exactly the opposite.  My face feels very soft and supple after I use it.  After the wash, of course, I use the Supple Moisture Rich Cream which is my second favorite product.  After using these, my skin just feels really soft and smooth.  It gives me a little bit of a glow without looking like a greasy mess. I can say that my powder foundation applies really well after I use these products.

The Cleansing oil is pretty good.  It gets the majority of the makeup off and it does work very well at getting mascara/eye makeup off.  Since it is used before the enzyme powder, it does exactly what it was supposed to do.

Now, finally, the Dewy Skin Mist.  This is the product that I have heard the most about and like I said…I’ve tried it so I already knew I would like it.  The spray is perfectly fine.  It doesn’t come out to heavy and it just gives a perfect refreshing mist when your skin needs it.  I didn’t really use it over any makeup.  I tended to just use it when my skin felt a little dry during the day.

All in all, great products.  I hate to say that I think they are worth the money, but IMO, they are.  I would buy the full sized versions.

Whish Beauty

Here is another product that I have been trying out for a while.  Of course, I purchased my products when they were on clearance at Ulta, however the line is still there with many choices and scents in the regular section as well. Whish says that it’s products are all natural and made with organic ingredients, which sounds great to me!  I’m always searching out organic or natural products that work well.  The products are pretty pricey which is why I jumped at the opportunity to try these clearance products.

The first products I tried were the body cream and body oil.  I really like the body oil.  The body cream was ok on it’s own, but nothing that I was overly excited about. I do love to mix the body oil and the body cream together so that it is extra smooth and moisturizing on the skin.

The second item that I tried was the Shaving cream!  O. M. G.   –  LOVE!  I don’t know what it is about this product, but I absolutely love it and it leaves my skin really smooth.  Of course, since I loved this so much, I went ahead to bought the Hair inhibiting gel and tried out the Flawless swipes as well.  The gel is a strange product, but I admit that it feels great on my skin.  It’s a little sticky feeling though.

I have just recently purchase two of their skin care products.  I purchased the Recovering Night Cream and the Restoring Face Oil.   I love these as well.  They make my face feel really soft, but the odor is something that I have to get used to.  It’s not bad, but it’s just….strange.

Anyways, for the most part, I have enjoyed using these.  Hopefully I will get to try out more..if they make their way to my favorite clearance rack.

Favorite Skin Care Items

As I get older, I have been getting more and more interested in my skin care.  I hate to admit that I don’t moisturize as much as I should, but there are a few items that have been helping me to keep my face looking nice and refreshed.

Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse – This cleanser is great!  I love it because it easily removes all of my eye make up, but most of all, I love it because it really does moisturize my skin.  I never have to fear my dry patches showing up on my face after I use this.

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash – This is my favorite cleanser.  I have been using it for years.  I definitely have to moisturize after I use it, but I have never had a break out using this cleanser.

Glamglow Thirsty Mud Cleanser – If you have followed my blog for some time, you will know that I absolutely love the the Thirsty Mud mask.  I have always felt it was worth the big bucks.  When they came out with the cleanser, I knew I had to give it a shot.  I really like it.  I love that it has the same smell and texture as the mask and it never leaves my skin feeling overly dry.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser – I tend to use this one when I’m having a breakout of something.  I am fortunate that I don’t have a lot of breakouts, but when I do, this is what I use because it seems to be the most gentle of my cleansers.

I have tried many different face cleansers and these seem to best for my very dry skin.  I occasionally try some items that I find at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s, but usually they are very fragrant and often irritate my skin.

Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder

I had been looking at this product all summer long, but would not purchase it since I already had a shimmer brick which seemed similar and the NYX Radiant Finishing Powder.  Well, the later broke into pieces in my purse so that gave me the perfect excuse to purchase this sweet item, so I bit the bullet and headed to the Bobbi Brown counter in Macy’s at Town Center Mall.  I was not disappointed!

I had been swatching this on my hand, but never would put it on my face because honestly I think I would have purchased it long ago if I had.  This product looks beautiful on.  It’s not as shimmery as the shimmer book, but rather just makes you look like a bronzed goddess.  A co-worker commented that I was glowing, and that made me very happy.  Since the color that I purchased for this is Bronze Glow, I achieved the look that I was going for.
