The history of the TATCHA brand is steeped in tradition and rituals.  The Japanese method of skin care involves ceremonies that focus on cleansing, massaging, nourishing, and protecting the skin via natural, time-tested botanicals and minerals.  TATCHA Beauty prides itself on following the time honored ritual followed by geisha.  This ritual is suitable for all ethnicities and ages, but especially for those with combination skin seeking solutions for prevention and repair and for older skin. The TATCHA line is ideal for women over 40! The brand has recently revamped their introductory set of  the four-step Core Collection and created the Ritual Discovery Kit ($59). It contains two weeks’ worth of core items, and it’s also a beautiful travel set with refillable glass bottles, sturdy enough for travel and elegant to display on your counter. It comes in four versions, so it can be tailored for oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin.  


The four parts of TATCHA Ritual Discovery Kit are:

  • Step 1: PURE is the TATCHA One Step Cleansing Oil. Cleansing oils are all the rage right now, and this is one of the best. The blend of camellia and rice bran oil melts away impurities and even waterproof makeup. Skin is left hydrated and supple in just one step. This is the travel size version. 
  • Step 2: POLISHED is the TATCHA Gentle Enzyme Rice Powder. There are  fourteen single use packets in the kit.  Dampen your hands and face, pour the powder into your hands, rub together and the powder will emulsify into a foam. Rub into face in a circular motion for 30 seconds and rinse off. I love that this scrub is made with enzyme rice powder so it is gentle enough to use every day. This is available in three formulas: Gentle for dry/sensitive skin, Classic for normal/combination skin, and Deep for oily/acne-prone skin. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing. Dermatologist tested.  The feel and texture is divine! TATCHA products always feel luxurious. Trust me, after using these sample packets, you’re going to want the full jar! I do.
  • Step 3: RADIANT is the TATCHA Deep Brightening Serum, this is the best brightening serum I have EVER used, it really, really works. I struggle with dark spots from sun damage and have tried just about everything for it. TATCHA Deep Brightening Serum is the ONLY product that made a real, noticeable  difference in my skin. Read my full review here.
  • Step 4: SUPPLE is the TATCHA Moisture Rich Silk CreamThis little white jar is so elegant and what’s inside will transform your skin! It looks very rich and thick, bur it’s actually very lightweight.  Liquid Silk, Squalane, Royal Jelly + HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex are the powerhouse anti-aging ingredients.

Though not included with the Ritual Discovery Kit, I would be cheating you if I didn’t let you in on my newest secret anti-aging weapon, TATCHA Revitalizing Eye Cream.  This intensive eye cream has deep anti-aging properties. It nourishes and purifies skin, resulting in a decreased appearance of puffiness under eyes, dark circles and tired looking eyes.  What I like most about this eye cream is that it highly moisturizing but it absorbs so well that you are NOT left with a greasy look or feel under your eyes. I hate it when my mascara leaves dots under my eyes because my eye cream just sat on top of my skin! The effective formula harnesses proven ingredients that work to promote microcirculation, preventing and reversing the signs of aging. My under eye area feels firmer and smoother!

Not only are TATCHA products highly effective and luxurious, the packaging is always beautiful with plenty attention to detail. The Ritual Discovery Kit is housed in a pretty pressed paper box complete with a guide and instructions. Each product has it’s own compartment surrounded by lavender “velvet.” The presentation makes for a lovely gift for a hard-core beauty maven as well as someone who is new to the brand.

 Bottom Line: I highly recommend you  try TATCHA: the skincare has made a marked improvement in my skin and the Ritual Discovery Kit is a great way to try some of the best-selling products in the line or to take your skincare with you on your travels. The line is pricey, but honestly, EVERY item I’ve tried from TATCHA has dramatically improved the look and feel of my skin. It is amazing and PERFECT for over women!!


Availability is at select Barney’s New York locations and TATCHA.com
