Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Review:
Oh, Tatcha, you luxurious maven! Yes, you get to use a golden spoon to apply this formula, because it deserves no less than gold. If you have oily skin, keep on moving, because this dense, rich formula is for the folks on the drier side.
The formula was an extreme surprise because it was so HEAVY. I was not expecting that. I dabbed the cream all over my face and smoothed it up. It glides on seamlessly and feels like butter! Well, maybe not butter, but it feels like a super-silky silicone-based primer does. I applied the moisturizer in the morning, and my skin stayed dewy and hydrated until evening!
Ok, now for some bad news, folks. While this little miracle in a jar looks and feels beautiful, it comes with a few ingredients we’re not into. Most of the list is completely harmless and actually beneficial for the skin. But, unfortunately, the formula contains alcohol and fragrance. The fragrance is fairly low on the list, immediately followed by the alcohol, but it reduces the chances it’ll play well with sensitive skin. While the fragrance is barely noticeable when applying the product, it can cause redness and flare-ups.
Another thing to note is the formula is so thick, it might be too heavy depending on your skin type. It worked well for me and delivered the dewy results it promised from a small dab. Using it every day is not ideal in my case though since my pores tend to get clogged with heavier formulas. This is more like emergency RX for my skin, especially in the drier winter months. Keep that in mind if you’re thinking of purchasing the expensive bottle.
While there are some negatives, the little tin packs a lot more positives, including Tatcha’s trade secret, Hadasei-3, aka “superfluid of Japan’s three essential nutrients of Green Tea, Rice, and Algae.” These help with skin hydration, protein nourishment, and anti-inflammatory properties. The formula also contains the all-popular squalane!
