Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen

[maxbutton id=”2″]

No matter what time of year it is, wearing sunscreen is essential. Although we all know this to be true, do we all actually follow this golden rule? Even this super pale girl admits that I sometimes forget, mostly because I work from home. When I’m not working from home, I am much more diligent. Even though I always look for foundations or tinted moisturizers that have SPF, I often wonder if there is a sunscreen out there that could do more than protect my skin from the sun?

With Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35, $68 (2 fl. oz.), the answer is a resounding yes. Not surprisingly, Japanese formulated, made in the USA sunscreen not only protects delicate skin from UVA and UVB rays, but also helps to tighten pores. Because of its invisible, lightweight non-greasy formulation it can also be used as a primer under makeup.

Tatcha Silken Sunscreen

Inspired by the iconic makeup used my geisha’s, Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen is ideal for everyday use on all skin types. It is non-comedogenic, doesn’t contain mineral oil, aminobenzoic acid, homosalate, oxybenzone or octinoxate, which basically means, no matter how sensitive your skin, this sunscreen won’t irritate it. The sunscreen also contains Japanese wild rose and silk extracts, as well as HADASEI-3 complex, a proprietary mixture of anti-aging extracts.

I found the formula to be fairly thick, so it did take some effort to work it into the skin. However, once it was on my skin it looked and felt amazing. I also really liked that the product didn’t have the “sunscreen smell,” which is fine for the beach, but not for daily use.

Even though we are heading into winter, were the sunlight doesn’t last as long, sun protection is so important. If you live in a climate where it snows, remember the snow acts as a natural reflecting surface, which can cause sun damage even when temperatures are at their lowest. Thanks to Tatcha, you can now protect your skin all year long, while tightening your pores for skin that’s perfected.

Overall:  At $68, the Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 is definitely on the pricey side for sunscreen. However, I do think it is worth the investment, especially since it can also work as a primer, which makes it two products in one. Plus, every purchase of the sunscreen helps fund one day of school for incredible girls in support of Room to Read, an organization committed to world change through children’s education. To date, Tatcha has contributed over 385, 091 days of school.

Do you wear sunscreen in the winter? Have you tried any products from Tatcha?

From our partners


  1. I need to be better about wearing sunscreen! I am awful.

  2. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    This is my favorite sunscreen along with Anthelios plus this has the added pore refining benefit. I love it, and everything else from Tatcha

  3. Travel Blogger says

    I need to try this! I need something to soften the look of my pores, and I always forget to wear sunscreen. This would be perfect for me.

  4. My skin so needs this during the summer, I burn easily! I hope we can buy Tatcha here in the UK x

  5. I’ll admit it, once summer is over, I’m horrible at sunscreen. Even the winter sun can be unforgiving. Now, that I’ve moved to Washington State, I’m not sure I’ll have to worry too much about the winter sun.

  6. I put sunscreen on daily. Now when I was younger, I didn’t care to. But as I got older, I realized I wanted my skin to stay as young looking as possible. This looks like a great product!

  7. I have a conflict with sunscreen. On one hand it does protect our skin from harmful UV rays but also it’s protecting us from a natural form of Vit D. I stopped wearing it on my body (aside from on vacation/beach or if I’m going outside for longer than 40 mins) but wear a moisturizer with SPF for my face

    • I agree, it is important to get natural vitamin D3 from the sun. I also am more vigilant about wearing sunscreen on my face, neck and decollete, than I am about my arms, unless I am going to be out in the sun all day. You only need about 20 minutes in the sun to get the D3 you need, which makes this pale girl feel better about not being so good with putting on the sunscreen.

  8. Oh! This is the first time I’ve heard of this brand. It sounds great, I love moisturizers with sunscreen.

  9. Rats! Chemical sunscreen. It looks fab for those who can use it, tho. 😀

  10. Roxanne Ferber says

    I have never heard of this brand before, so thank you for sharing!! I wear sunscreen all year- it’s the first line of defense against aging!

  11. This sounds really nice! I’d be curious to see how those Japanese plant extracts help my skin!

  12. Ursula Ball says

    I would love to try this brand and great to know that this company gives back through education!


  13. They’re such a nice luxury brand

  14. I am TERRIBLE about remembering to put on sunscreen. This brand is new to me, but it sounds wonderful!

  15. I admit I don’t wear sunscreen on non-sunny days – bad habit; I ought to change that 🙁

  16. Laura Londergan says

    yes I absolutely try to wear sunscreen even in the winter. You can totally get skin cancer from the winter sun just as easily as from the summer sun. We all need to protect when we can 😉

  17. Debra Hawkins says

    This sounds fantastic! I am always looking for new and exciting beauty products to try!

  18. Everything Tatcha makes is wonderful. If I’m putting something on my skin to protect it then I’d want the best too.

  19. This sounds wonderful! I love Tatcha. I have a few products from them.

  20. I have very fair skin, so sunscreen is always at the front of my mind. Having it do double duty as a primer is a great benefit.

  21. I have large pores and in the sun they became very irritated. At the moment it is winter but will keep this in mind

  22. Eileen Mendoza Loya says

    First time I heard of a product that provides protection from UV rays and tighten pores at the same time. I will have to read more about Tatcha and its benefits.

  23. I’ve never heard of Tatcha before. I don’t wear sunscreen on non sunny days. I really should start applying this whether it’s sunny or not.

  24. Yes, I wear sunscreen every day. I’ve never heard of that product, but I don’t vary much because I break out easy and have a system that works for me.

  25. This is one of the best sunscreens I’ve come across. Fabulous all around!

  26. swankyrecipes says

    Sunscreen is a must in our house! Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that we skip it either. We’re in the south and it’s still pretty hot here so this is a must!

  27. I only buy lotions and make up with sun screen. It is so important.

  28. Ourfamilyworld says

    I always use sunscreen. I’d love to try this.

  29. I need this in my life, it looks perfect for my skin. I’m gonna try it.

  30. Stephanie Pass says

    With my fair skin, sunscreen is a must year round. It’s a bit expensive, but it is nice that it can work as a primer, too.

  31. I love the cleanser that I have from Tatcha and I want to try so many more of their products. This looks great!

  32. This looks and sounds like a good product to try. Thanks for the review.

  33. I have this and love it.

  34. Sounds awesome. I have their dewy skin mist stored away that I keep meaning to try!

  35. Oh I am so bad at putting sunscreen on when it’s not summer – even though I have pale and freckly Irish skin (you would think I would know better!) I love the sound of this brand, will have to check it out

  36. Ooh this sounds amazing!

  37. CourtneyLynne Storms says

    Look this stuff sounds pretty fabulous. I’m always on the hunt for new facial anything. Will have to look more into this!
