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.

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.

Favorite Bath Products

I’m a huge lover of all smell good things. I have a bathroom full of bar soaps, body sprays, shower gels, body scrubs…etc. My favorite place to buy new items to try is TJ Maxx or Marshall’s simply because they have a ton of products that I have never heard of..and a ton of products that I have. They are also always on a very big discount.

Bath and Body Works is, of course, a favorite among everyone! I can sometimes lose complete control in this store and leave with so many shower gels and candles that it would take forever to use them all up.  I keep the sprays and lotions to travel sizes because I can’t go through them as quickly, but I still have a ton.

Here is a picture of a few of my favorite bath items this month.

Soap & Glory’s Clean on Me shower gel. I love the smell of this. It is so fresh and it gets me all squeaky clean.

Bliss Soapy Suds Body Wash and Body Lotion in the scent Grapefruit & Aloe. This is my favorite scent by them. It may have been discontinued as I keep getting this version from Marshall’s or Saks off 5th.

Sweet Pea Shower gel and body lotion from Bath & Body Works. I love this scent. It has been around for a very long time, but I love when it makes the way into my bath product rotation again.

HydraAromotherapy Shower Bursts – Now this isn’t actually a product that you soak in, but you drop it into your shower and let the aroma just guide your senses. I often get headaches and I love to use the Headache buster one and I also love the Relax and Healing ones. I buy them from a local spa in downtown Acworth GA called Pearl’s Spa & Boutique.

Shea Butter Exfoliating Salt Scrub by The Sommerset Toiletry Company.  This stuff smells AMAZING!  Another find from Marshall’s.   I’m obsessed with it.  Not only is it really great at making my skin feel super soft, the smell is just addicting.  It’s very strong, and the scent lingers in your bathroom and on your skin for an entire day.
