🍬🍃TATCHA MINIS HAUL🍃🍬
💜This is a recent Tatcha haul I scooped from Sephora with my VIB discount & saved up points, but I definitely placed an order today on tatcha.com to take advantage of their 20% off sale. Such a good time to purchase from Tatcha! I grabbed a couple old 5 star favorites like the Gold Spun lip balm & their Japanese blotting papers, as well as some other things I’ve been wanting to check out. Tatcha is actually an American brand, made in Japan🇯🇵, that adheres to Japan’s official safety & purity standards, one of the highest in the world, much stricter than the US (for more on that, check out my last post, or the 2015 documentary on Netflix called Stink) They were recently acquired by Unilever, so I hope they don’t ever change their standards! Tatcha sources all of their botanical extracts, ingredients & actives from plants grown in the most renowned provenances of Japan. 🍵🍚🌊Their formulas revolve around key ingredients Green Tea, Rice & Seaweed, the trinity of superfoods, rich in both nutrients & Japanese history, based on a Japanese document from 1813 which captured the beauty rituals of the time. ➕Their 2x fermented ‘Hadasei-3 complex’ yields over 85 actives like Enzymes, Minerals, Lactic & Amino Acids. It’s been a couple years since I’ve purchased Tatcha products, I’ve always loved their face creams, but we all know Tatcha is pricey!!! I think I was just always into moving on & trying something new, but oh how I missed them! I haven’t had as much luck with Tatcha cleansers in the past, I do adore their rice polish exfoliators 🍚 but personally was never a fan of the ‘One Step Camellia cleansing oil’ scent. I don’t think I’ve ever tried ‘The Deep Cleanse’ but I’m actually most excited to try their new cream cleanser: ‘The Rice Wash’🍚💦 I was also excited to finally try ‘The Silk Peony melting eye cream’ too, so this set was a no brainer! TATCHA - Pure & Glowing Trio

💰Worth it??? Sephora NEW Skincare Sets! Tatcha Special🤩
I just noticed that Sephora released a lot of new skincare sets! Each of them looks attractive and adorable to me which makes me want to take these little cuties home lol. Of course, we need to be sensible about our desire to buy! Since Tatcha has been a hot issue recently after they release their new cleanser, I picked 2 sets from the brand Tatcha that are the same price as different products. I have calculated all the prices for you so don't worry! Let's review them together to see if it's worth it to buy or not!💰💰💰 TATCHA Pure & Glowing Trio Set $72.00 (Valued $102.00) TATCHA - Pure & Glowing Trio The first set that not only from Tatcha but also from the Sephora whole new arrivals page that attracts my eye is the Tatcha Pure & Glowing Trio Sets! This set includes the newest cleanser that I just mentioned! What's it is: A three-step ritual that richly hydrates skin for a visibly plump, luminous complexion. For Normal, Dry, Combination skin type who worried about Dryness and Dullness. 1.69 oz /50 mL The Rice Wash (Valued $35/120mL Around$15/50ml)1.69 oz/ 50 mL The Dewy Skin Cream (Valued $68/50mL)0.17 oz/ 5 mL The Silk Peony (Valued $60/15mL Around $20/5mL) My Review: I would say this set is definitely worth buying!!! A full-size Dewy Skin Cream is already sooo attractive! I brought this before and I really love it as a night time cream for my combination skin! Also, I really want to try the cleanser. I will definitely buy this one! TATCHA Pure and Pore-Perfecting Trio Set $72.00 (Valued $104.00) TATCHA - Pure and Pore-Perfecting Trio Same selling price with the Pure & Glowing Trio Set. Also, come with one of their famous products -- The Water Cream. And the same with the Silk Peony eye cream. What it is: A three-step ritual that cleanses and hydrates the face and eye area for smooth, balanced-looking skin. For Normal, Dry, and Combination skin type who concerned with Pores and Oiliness. 1.7 oz/ 50 mL The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser (Valued $16/50mL)1.7 oz/ 50 mL The Water Cream (Valued $68/50mL)0.16 oz/ 5 mL The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream (Valued $60/15mL Around $20/5mL) My Review: Compare to the Pure & Glowing Trio, I would still choose that one instead of this Pure and Pore-Perfecting Trio. I love the water cream as my daytime moisturizer however the cleanse and eye cream are not that attractive to me. I would probably get the Pure & Glowing Trio Set and full size the water cream🤔 Overall, for my personal preference, I like the first one more. If you have the same need as me, I also recommend you try the products that Pure & Glowing Trio included. But if you are oily skin and you have large pores or acne, the second one will be more suitable for you to try! Leave a common to share with me what's your idea! Hope you guys find this helpful and cheer for me!❤️

All the cleansers I have emptied in 2020!! Im still trying all different cleansers but one item I will definitely repurchase: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm I feel all other ones are replaceable except for this one!
Filters are great, but great skin is BETTER!
Hi ladies! Okay so this is one of my favorite facial cleansers. (I have tried a lot, lol!) I have sensitive skin so I enjoy the gentle yet effective products. This cleansing product always leaves my skin feeling so fresh and soothed. This cleanse contains the “Japanese Luffa Fruit”. One of the main skin care benefits of this ingredient is that it acts as a natural detoxifier. Not only does the luffa fruit detoxify it also acts as a anti-inflammatory agent for the skin. I can honestly say that if I had to explain this product in a few works they would be DETOXIFY and DESTRESS so the luffa fruit extract is truly doing it’s job. My skin feels like brand new after using this product, feeling fresh is honestly an understatement. When I first encountered it I wanted to wash my face a million times a day because of the effect it had on my skin LOL!, I couldn’t get enough of it. The cleanser is somewhat like a watery thinned out jelly base with tiny pieces of the luffa fruit that act almost as a extremely gentle exfoliant in my opinion. This cleanse truly rids the skin of dirt and debris without stripping the skin barrier. You can use this product everyday morning and night. The aroma to this product is very light and fresh (I can’t stand anything with potent overbearing odor but do enjoy a little scent on occasion if it’s from natural extracts). It almost smells like green tea with a hint of citrus. I highly recommend this facial cleanser, you still not be dissatisfied!! Sometimes Sephora has the option of selecting the smaller size just do that at first to try it out. CHANGE IS GOOD 💋

All my lovely moisturizers emptied in 2020
I will get another jar of TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream for next winter and fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer when everything else Going on is emptied. I can’t live without moisturizers, day or night.
Just okay for such an expensive product :/
First Impression: I opened the box and WOW is this small for $20! I never shop at Sephora and the only reason I bought this was because I received a $25 gift card recently but I was at least expecting this to be a little bit bigger. Like .5 fl oz instead of .34 maybe? I have heard amazing things from dozens of skincare sites so I couldn’t wait to try it! Opening: When I opened the tin, it looked thick due to its color, but once I put some on it was VERY thin. When I use my regular Clinique Moisture Surge (which is super hydrating) it is very lightweight but still a little bit heavier than this. Smells great! Next day: I have to say the combo of this and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil has me waking up with the smoothest skin but lately my skin has been feeling much drier due to the cold (not on just my face) and I don’t think it is as hydrating as I expected it to be. The cream dries very quickly which makes me want to put another layer on and when I wake up I still have dry spots. Like I said I feel VERY smooth but not as hydrated as I’d like. Verdict: I feel like this would definitely benefit me better around the summer/springtime when I’m not looking for complete re-hydration of my skin and more of a moisturizer but I do not think this is the holy grail I was expecting it to be. Try it out if you get the opportunity because all skin is different! But for my combination skin and hormonal acne, it’s gonna be a no from me, dawg :(

This is my one month update on my skin. I have been using tretinoin cream every 3 nights & and the clindamycin phosphate lotion morning and night. I then decided to change my skincare routine to a Korean & Japanese skincare, and I’m very happy I made the choice. On December 3rd I went to get a customized facial and my esthetician told me I have acne that is clogged pores underneath my skin, so she did a deep extraction and in another few weeks I’m going to get one more done just to make sure they are all out. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm I was using the dhc deep cleaning oil but it was too thick for me so I switch to this and it is light and not stripping, good for a oil cleanse or a first cleanse TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser this cleanser is a nice hydrating cleanser and it does not strip my skin at all Krave - Kale-Lalu-yAHA I just started using this exfoliant but I really like it and I seen results right after I used it Krave - Great Barrier Relief this serum is another I just started using but I love it, and it have a nice smell to it Krave - The Beet Shield this sunscreen does not leave a white cast on my face, and I don’t feel greasy after PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster this products is helping me get rid of my acne marks that I have from my facial PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster I just love this! This is helping with my acne and dark marks dear, klairs - Fundamental Water Gel Cream I have to use a light weight moisturizer so it won’t clog my pores
🍚 Dewy Skin Duo: Worth it? 💜
Picked up thisTatcha duo on a whim at Sephora with so many mixed reviews on the new rice wash I had to try for myself! TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser TOO MUCH fragrance, I really think I would love this cleanser if it was fragrance free, I don’t mind a little scent but this was overpowering and my skin didn’t love it - it’s initially gritty but smooths and lathers really nice with some water. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream This cream is so luxurious ✨ seriously if you want to feel fancy - buy this, I think it would be okay for most skin types, my crazy sensitive didn’t mind it, the fragrance is actually nice and not to overwhelming, I used it in the AM and it kept me nice and hydrated all day long! What did you think of these Tatcha products? ✨💜

Healed in under 1 week! How I prevented scarring
🐺So I have a 9 month old Siberian Husky, he’s got way too much energy for me sometimes. He totally booped me in the eye with his teeth & basically bit my eyelid. I was honestly so f***ing worried, eye skin is so sensitive & my skin scar easily, even from bruising. So how did I get this back to normal in 6 days? First things first... Regularly applying (yup, multiple times a day) SUNSCREEN will help prevent hyperpigmentation. ☀️When you get a cut or bruise, even a baby one, your skin barrier has been compromised. Even the healthiest skin barrier will not protect you from UV rays whatsoever & any new skin growing after an abrasion is extremely susceptible to UV damage, regardless of your skin tone! I’m super pale, but even with skin that doesn’t burn easily, newly generated skin tissue will become darker if you don’t use an SPF to protect it. I included a pic of a scratch I got from my dog several months ago, where I totally didn’t protect it from the sun. I can be lazy about body sunscreen & this proved to me that almost any broken skin will scar if it gets sun. I used: KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 But honestly any sunscreen you like with a decent SPF is key for scar prevention. Reapply & reapply! I love this formula because it’s so moisturizing! Full review in a previous post. Keeping your skin hydrated & moisturized is super important too, you want to give your skin nourishment while it heals. Which brings me to the second most important thing. 🐌A repair serum: Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin I have fully fallen in love with Snail Mucin after this serum! Because Snail Mucin is a stress-induced excretion, it's comprised of ingredients meant to repair or protect from injury. These include growth factors, which work by triggering the growth of new skin cells & new collagen. This particular serum is really affordable-$17. It contains over 3% Snail Mucin & it’s over 63% Ginseng extract, also amazing for skin repair & evening tone. Allantoin is another component in the secretion; healing properties, calms irritation & stimulates cell regeneration Also fragrance/alcohol free! Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum Limited Edition This is also packed with Ginseng & other reparative botanical extracts. This really helps me retain moisture in my skin, I use it 2x a day & have noticed generally brighter & clearer skin in the last few months. You use this after cleansing or toning, before other serums. TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream After a couple days I added this. ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Great for sensitive skin & has vitamin E. I alternated between this &: TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Also used this: Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide Almost 60% Propolis + 2% Niacinamide
My skin has been liking me lately😊
Been using these three products for a month and for 43 year old skin I must say they do not disappoint. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% takes away little bumps and patch’s of redness. Helps prevent acne.The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer oil free doesn’t case acne and it feels great in my skin.Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser I love this face wash doesn’t cause breakouts and leaves skin so soft and clean. I haven’t found a face wash this great in awhile. TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream

Brand Spotlight: BLISS
Bliss is one of my favorite affordable drugstore clean and cruelty free brand. They are easily accessible, you find them at: Ulta, CVS, Target and Bliss.com, etc. I can’t help but love everything that I’ve tried from them. Here are current favorites and must haves: Left to right: ￼bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum A mixture between toner and serum this is an awesome toner that is alcohol free, vegan, and packed with skin calming and pore refining ingredients : BHA, niacinamide, zinc and cica. ￼bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer My day/ night cream depending on my mood and what serums I’m using. Sinks in the skin well and has great texture. ￼bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer This is comparable to TATCHA - The Water Cream very lightweight but pack a lot of moisture. It leaves my skin feeling a bit tacky which I love as a base before my primer and make up. ￼bliss - Rose Gold Rescue Moisturizer All times favorite basic moisturizer for day and night. I usually use this when either my skin has a break out and I have to go back to basics or when I’m using retinol or some other harsh serums. ￼bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum If you are new to glycolic acids or AHAs this is a great beginner’s choice. For me I thought this quite a gentle formula... I didn’t feel any discomfort or irritation. ￼bliss - Fabulips Lip Scrub This is my first lip scrub... so I don’t know if it’s good or not. It’s not bad. It’s moisturizing, exfoliating and didn’t taste bad. 😋 Clean product: 🌱No Parabens 🌱No Alcohol 🌱No Sulfates 🌱No Nuts 🌱No Oils 🌱No Silicones 🐰Cruelty Free 🐰 Vegan Have you tried any of their product? Tell me your favorites below. Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful
Review on this baby
TATCHA - The Water Cream I got this sample from Sephora using my points. It has been laying around for a while, and I finally decided to give it a try a couple of weeks ago! I swear by my Lancôme creams, but I wanted to see what this hype is all about. - It feels lighter than my Lancôme facial cream. A little bit spreads so easily like water all over my face and neck. It has a nice scent to it. I thought it smelled like Eucalyptus oil, but it has Japanese wild rose and Japanese Leopard Lily. I have combination skin- I am only trying this during the day time, as it’s not creamy enough for night time use in Chicago cool weather. - The foundation spread very easily and looked flawless. At the end of the day- my face felt a little less shiny and less moisturized as opposed to my Lancôme cream. -Japanese Wild Rose is supposed to improve the look of pores. I do have some on my cheeks- but I didn’t really notice much difference. Most importantly! It did not break me out at all!! - So far, I still prefer Lancôme, but I can see this as a nice and less expansive alternative option in the summer. ❤️ Lancôme cream feels thicker and is more moisturizing- especially now with the cool weather! With this- I would have to wear a sunscreen. I have yet to find a sunscreen that does not break me out.
one of my fav cleanser/moisturizer duo!
i love this duo I ended up buying the full-size water cream moisturizer immediately after finishing the sample size! 💙 the cleanser has such a lovely scent and gently exfoliates so well. the moisturizer is both lightweight and hydrating at the same time, and is so cooling as soon as applied. tatcha products are pricer than other brands but this duo came as a set for $25, and lasted me about a month! it allowed me to try out both of them for a decent amount of time before deciding whether or not they were worth purchasing. while I did purchase the full size moisturizer, i’ve decided against getting the cleanser again as i’ve used other cleansers that are more in my price-range. 👏🏼 the packaging is really sleek (who doesn’t love great packaging 😂) and I would definitely recommend these products to someone looking to try out tatcha! I also noticed on their website you’re able to create your own sample set of products based off your needs which I think is an awesome way to test stuff out. 5/5 ❤️
TATCHA-Pore-Perfecting Moisturizer & Cleanser Duo
Love everything Tatcha!
Honestly, if I had the opportunity to try everything by Tatcha, I’m pretty sure I’d love it all! So lucky me I received the full size of the Tatcha Deep Cleanse as a gift from the wonderful women of Cherie. I had also turned in some points on Sephora and picked up the little set that came with the cleanse as well as The Water Cream. . First up, The Deep Clean. What I loved is it’s such a gentle cleanser with very little scent that deeply purifies the face with natural fruit exfoliants. I haven’t opened the large bottle as it has a 6 month shelf life after opening and I want to get through some others before diving into it, but I have been using the smaller one. Tatcha - please fix the bottle! It’s impossible to squeeze and product doesn’t just pour out. You have to squeeze it out. I have found if I keep it upside down the product comes out much easier. This is a cleanser you can use daily. The large size I have retails for $38 I absolutely loved how my face felt after my wash. The cleanser was easy to work with, my face felt soft and hydrated and had almost a cooling sensation to it. I was impressed! . The Water Cream is such a great moisturizer. I’ve tried their Dewy Skin Cream and enjoyed that as well but this one is much more light which my skin prefers. Very soft scent which isn’t noticeable after applying. The full size retails for $68 . I would definitely repurchase both these products! I should note Tatcha is CF but is owned by Unilever who is not. So if you are against that this brand may not be for you. .

August / September Empties 🗑
Skincare/Makeup Empties 🗑 - • Saturday Skin Rise + Shine gentle cleanser: A suuuuper gentle cleanser. This would be great for anyone with sensitive skin. Sometimes I felt like it was too gentle for my skin, but it worked really well any time my skin felt irritated. • Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream: I LOVED using this product. This is only the second moisturizer I’ve seen maintain the hydration of my skin throughout the entire day. This pairs really well with The Ordinary’s Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2% and Biossance’s squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil • Bareminerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion: I actually used this up so long ago, but forgot about it because I placed it in my Repurchase bin. I remember loving this product and repurchasing it many times. I need it back in my routine so I can update my thoughts on it. • Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil: This took me a really long time to use up and it was effective so I feel like that makes it worth the $72 price. I bought this on New Year’s Eve and finished it up at the end of August. I’ll definitely repurchase this again in the future, but I’m currently trying out different facial oils that are already in my collection. • Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define full coverage concealer and contour (shade C12): This is by far my favorite concealer and it’s only $7. When they said full coverage, they meant it! This is definitely for full beat makeup days. • Cvs Beauty All in One Micellar Cleansing Water: I felt like I had to use more of this product than I usually do with micellar waters, but it still got the job done.
SATURDAY SKIN-Rise + Shine Gentle Cleanser
Cute lil GWP
Gifted this mini set to my mother as she has oily to combo skin. I used to have the water cream and I loved using it in the summer, it felt refreshing and it was so moisturizing and luxurious. And due to that it was expensive so I haven’t been able to repurchase it yet!
