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.

Fragrances that I have been loving

I have so many body sprays that I honestly thought about not buying any new perfumes but I really like having a variety.  I’m pretty big on roller balls as well because I can just throw them in my purse and they are less expensive. I believe that I mentioned before that I have almost every single Marc Jacobs sent in roller ball form and I love those.

This past month, I had decided to buy a few new full sized fragrances for the summer.  Now, the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet I have had for a while and I absolutely love this scent. No matter how much I try to change up my fragrances, I really love floral and clean smells.  I don’t like musky or overpowering scents at all.  Keeping that in mind, my next favorite is Jennifer Anniston. This has also been a favorite that I have had for a while in roller ball form.  I went ahead and bought the large bottle.  It wasn’t very expensive so I consider it a good deal.

During Sephora’s fragrance sales where they offered 3x’s the beauty points, I purchased two scents.  The first is Chloe’s Love Story.  This smells soooo good! This is definitely a classic scent for me.  It’s light, floral and slightly sweet.  I can spray it without fear of feeling that the scent will become overwhelming throughout the day.  I have worn this a lot since I purchased it.

The final scent that I purchased is Marchesa Eau de perfume.  This is a different scent for me which is what I was looking for when I purchased it.  It’s still very clean, but not necessarily floral.  When I first smelled it, I thought it smelled “soapy”, but sweet.  It’s a very unique smell.  I sprayed it in the store, then walked around for a day with it on.  The more the day went on, the more I really liked it.  It was just….different.  I have been enjoying my new fragrances a lot.  What are your signature scents?
