  • The Best

    I love this product!!! It works and it's the best. I wouldn't use anything else.
  • Beautiful!

    This is by far the best moisturizer I've ever used! I have very combination skin and it balances it no matter if it's dry or oily. The texture is so silky, you only need a tiny dollop the size of the pad of your finger. It's truly and amazing beautiful product! Everyone can use this, and everyone should!!

    I'm fifteen years old and have dry, acne prone skin. I break out from weather changes, stress, bad eating, and the wrong skincare. I've tried everything, from expensive skincare to proactiv, clean and clear to la roche posay, to super hydrating face oils and harsh face masks. I picked up the Tatcha cleansing oil one day, and fell in love. So I got the face polish as well. Love! So I decided to take the plunge and get more Tatcha products. This is the most luxurious, hydrating, yet light face cream I have ever used. It sinks in beautifully and keeps my skin clear, fresh, happy, and baby butt soft. The price is ridiculous, yes, but this skincare is so transformative and beautiful, not to mention the packaging, you do get good value for money. The results speak for themselves. I could go on and on about this. Just try it.
  • Worth every penny!

    I called in to Tatcha's amazing customer service, and a girl (so sweet, but I forget her name) recommended this cream for my combination skin. I feel like whenever I try to use a moisturizer on a daily basis I just end up getting little bumps through my T-zone and I have to set it aside while I try to get rid of them. Not so with this one! It feels so light and silky on my skin and sinks in right away. I can even wear it under my foundation which I only put on for special occasions. It is a bit expensive for me, but we all have to decide what to spend our hard earned money on, and for me it will be this product!!
  • Best!

    I put five star because their customer service and their products are beyond awesomeness! all transaction were done very, very quick and fast. I love the moisturizer very much, the texture, the smell, it made my pore smaller, and how my skin glow. Unfortunately, I found out after I used it for several months that I'm allergic to some ingredients Due to some medication I'm taking. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to depart from it , and was very sad that I have to return it
  • Heavenly Moisturizer!

    This moisturizer is perfect for my oily/acne prone skin! Does not clog pores or cause me to break out and leaves my skin feeling so so smooth. My skin has literally never been this soft! It is so light weight but it is very hydrating without being greasy/oily/heavy. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling or residue behind. This is my new holy grail moisturizer, the only one that truly works for my skin type and the only one I will continue to use! Love it! Would recommend to anyone :)
  • I'm the exception :(

    I must be the only human whose skin did not benefit from half the products I tried. I'm guessing I must be allergic to one or more of the ingredients. Despite it being "non-irritating" and "non-sensitizing", my face completely rejected this cream. Upon contact my face got hot/flushed, (which eventually went away after a few minutes fortunately). I didn't think too much of it since the heat went away and I assumed it was part of the anti-aging effect, kind of like how glycolic acids make your skin tingly, but woke up the next morning with redness and little whiteheads all over. So it both irritated my skin AND clogged my pores. I had the same experience with the brightening serum and indigo treatment.
    Luckily, I can use the cleanser and enzyme powder with no issues and absolutely love both those products. So not all is lost :)
  • Amazing!

    I'm 51, and live in a cold, dry town. My teaching job requires me to use blackboard chalk and markers a lot. AND the skin on the back of my hands had a tendency to be dry. I've tried out many different kinds of moisturizers, none of which made much of a difference.

    Then I tried the TATCHA silk cream moisturizer. After just ONE use, my hands started looking about TWO decades younger. I kept staring at them in disbelief, thinking my contact lenses were fogged up, but it was real. Yes, the product is pricey, but I'm going to cut down on other expenses and buy it.
  • Finally!

    I'm 63 and have never found a gentle enough moisturizer that doesn't make me breakout on my sensitive skin. Yes, even at my age! I use this at night and the Deep Brightening Serum during the day because both are very hydrating and not oily or greasy. The products sink into the skin and do not just lay on top as with some, leaving your face still tight and dry. I have discovered that these products are all I need and that for years I've been over doing it with skin treatments. No more blemishes now! TY Tatcha!
  • Featherlight!!

    This moisturizer is like "Angel's wings" touching your face! It never feels heavy but deeply penetrates & Oh! So comforting....if you use a powder foundation-- you can immediately apply! Your skin is just velvety & feels like suede....thanks Tatcha!
  • Perfect moisturizer!

    Another five star product from tatcha! I love this moisturizer. I've been going without it for a few months, finding it hard to justify the cost. But this is truly an investment in yourself! I love this moisturizer so much, it's silky and light but plumps up your skin and leaves it glowing. I love it, thank you again tatcha!
  • Love this cream

    I just received a travel size of this cream. It has an amazing smell and a very light texture. I really enjoy applying it on my skin. It's light and airy and makes me feel amazing. I will be buying the full size:).
  • Huge Fan

    I have been using the Moisture Rich Silk Cream for close to half a year now and could not speak more highly about it. My skin is extremely sensitive and very dry due to eczema and the Tatcha facial cream moisturizes without irritating my face. It is such a joy to open the beautiful packaging and see Vicky's note. A truly lovely and luxurious product.
  • Love this product

    I'm very finicky when it comes to moisturizers but this one is great. Its not too light and not too heavy, its just right. I recommend it, to anyone who has normal skin type. Love it...
  • Love Love Love

    I have been using this product since I first heard of Tatcha. I must say I love the way my skins looks and feels. It does not clog my pores and is so lightweight. I am a customer for life. thank you!
  • Love at first touch

    I did not want to like this moisturizer because of its hefty price tag. I tried the deluxe sample that comes in the Discovery Kit and I have already decided it will be the splurge of the year - along with the Brightening Serum. My oh my. I'm in my mid 20's, have normal to dry skin but live in a very hot, humid city. Because of that, it will sometimes get shiny throughout the day. The texture of this moisturizer is very luxurious and unlike anything I've ever tried (and I've tried A LOT of skincare products). My skin "drinks" this immediately and my skin is left with the most supple, smooth feeling. Makeup applies effortlessly above this, but it's moisturizing enough to use it at night. In the last 10 days, I've noticed my skin is more firm and radiant. If you can afford this, get it.
  • hydrating without being too heavy

    Pretty impressive! I normally have problems with moisturizers- i.e. skin reacts to the chemicals within, and i get redness/tingly feeling, or break out slightly. but this was pretty fab. it has a unique gel cream texture, very smooth and silky when first applied to the face- making it easy to spread out. I use this layered with the hydrating serum at night, and i wake up feeling dewy/moisturised/protected. it's definitely helped my skin texture and moisture level improve- overall, i'm a total TATCHA convert!

    Normally I don't use moisturizers but I love everything else I've got from Tatcha & tried this in a sample packet when I bought the lip balm. I felt in love with it. It melts right into my skin leaving it super soft!
  • Hmm..

    I had been looking for a moisturizer that would give my skin rich dewy hydration. This cream scared me a little at first because it burns and tingles a little when applying right after washing face. I heard the texture was amazing, but in reality it is a chalky type of creamy gel. not a luxurious gel.

    BUT! it does firm and lift skin quickly! I love how clean and smooth it makes my skin.. It does give me a pretty look . Makes me feel beautiful in seconds. And i have no signs of irritation or breakouts so I have kept using.

    Still not sure if I would repurchase. Still looking for that perfect gel-like cream that gives a rich supple look. Maybe if i add the dewy skin mist? IDK but that scares me too because of that strange tingle/burn i get when applying. What if the mist feels the same? So just a Hmm as a review. Probably would not repurchase.. too rough feeling on skin. Not gentle enough.
  • Heavenly

    This is the best and most unique moisturizer that I have ever used. It's somewhere n between a gel and a cream and delivers the perfect amount of moisture without being heavy or sticky. It leaves a delicate veil of silky softness and preps skin perfectly for makeup application. I have slightly oily/combination skin and this moisturizer leaves my skin looking and feeling heavenly. I have been using Tatcha's Camellia Cleansing Oil, Deep Rice Enzyme Powder and Moisture Rich Silk Cream for a month now and the difference in my skin is like nothing I've ever experienced. I am so in love with my skincare routine now and look forward to my daily ritual morning and night.
  • So soothing for my dry skin!

    I have been using the Tatcha line for the last 5 months and my skin has never been better. Since my skin has become progressively drier and more sensitive as I approach menopause, my skincare regimen had to change and I could no longer use the products in the past that had served me well. The Moisture Silk Cream is so wonderful in its consistency yet so effective at hydrating without a greasy afterfeel. Like other reviewers have said, it is a wonderful nourishing base for makeup. My makeup literally slides on effortlessly. I use the Moisture Silk Cream in conjunction with the Cleansing Oil (which has been nothing short of a godsend for my skin), the Luminous Hydrating Serum and the Gentle Rice Powder and my skin is polished, hydrated without feeling greasy and smooth and clear. Gone are the annoying red bumps, rashes and other reactions that I used to have. Instead, I have clear, smooth skin with a creamy even tone. Best of all, the customer service is outstanding and Tatcha really cares about their customers' well-being and satisfaction as well as what goes into their products. If you're on the fence - give it a go.
  • balanced perfection for my oily and sensitive skin

    This moisturizer is unlike anything I have ever tried before. It balances the natural oils of my face to provide moisture without feeling heavy or causing my face to look like an oil slick within an hour. I'm also so happy and surprised that I didn't have to go through my usual 2 week adjustment period where my face is a hot mess of irritation and break outs while it adjusts to a new product! After washing my face, this gel/cream easily sinks into my skin and leaves my face feeling comfortable, nourished, and fresh. After using this moisturizer for about 3 months, my skin looks incredibly healthy, and is noticeably more balanced. It hasn't over-corrected like some moisturizers intended for combo/oily skin where I need to add moisture back, or even worse, where my skin reacts by producing more oil. There are definitely anti-aging benefits to this moisturizer, and although it's not the main reason why I am so happy with the product, I certainly love this benefit as well! This is exactly what I've been looking for, and my skin has never been happier or looked better!

    Aside from the product itself, I must take a moment to rave about the brand- Tatcha truly cares about their customers, what goes in to their products, and how their brand can impact the world for the better. It is complete beauty from the inside out.
  • Exceptional Cream that gives Results!

    I have been using this morning and night for the past 9 weeks. I had previously used La Mer products for the past 3 years with satisfaction, but after seeing Tatcha pop up everywhere, I decided to try it. I used the entire line, Oil, Classic Rice Powder, Serum and Silk Cream and after 2 weeks I was dismayed at the large breakouts I got. I am 36 and have not had acne since I was a teenager. I realized this could have been from the transition from one skincare line to another, so I remained patient. After no change on the third week I stopped using the Oil and reduced using the Rice Powder three times a week. And that was perfect. Now six weeks later, ZERO breakouts and my skin is the most radiant I have ever seen. Fine lines have reduced, this cream produces NO shine on my oily/normal skin and my face and neck feel so much softer. The best result with this cream is that makeup just glides on so effortlessly. You really notice how SMOOTH your skin feels with the tiniest amount of foundation, primer or a CC cream. You only need 4 small dots for your face, so a jar does last a long time. Your face is an investment and although the Cleansing Oil was a bit rich for me, I have not stopped talking about how fantastic the double punch of the Deep Brightening Serum and the Moisture Silk Cream is. Like with anything you must be patient. My skin looks amazing after 9 weeks, yet it was the same after 2. Be patient. The longer you will use this cream the better! You will get results, you will be happier and more confident and you can pretty much discard any other product lines. Thank you SO much Tatcha. I never thought I would stop using the La Mer Regenerating Serum and Cream, but the clarity, radiance, line reduction and overall softness of your products have converted and captured me completely!
  • Best Moisturizing Cream!

    This is a must-have! I have sensitive skin and prone to break outs. I've tried other creams with no luck. When I looked into this, I decided to give it try. Within a week, my face started to clear up and barely broke out. As weeks gone by, it just got better and better. I just can't see myself with another product other than this. This product would last me at least 3's worth it.
  • This product is Amazing

    I am a professional makeup artist and I am always searching for the perfect base for skin before I apply foundation and I have finally found it!
    The moisture rich silk cream leaves skin luminant and gorgeous but never greasy. I can't say enough about how makeup looks with this underneath as a nourishing base. Love this product.
  • How can you not love a something that has the lightness of a gel but the richness of a cream?

    I've been obsessed with gel-creams since like 2007 when I first found one in an airport duty-free shop. I love the almost "bouncy" texture and the fact that it has all the richness and hydration of a traditional cream but the lightweight, "cool" feeling of a gel.

    This one doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and smells pretty. Like, like, like. The amethyst-colored ribbon on the top is even prettier.
  • Just absolutely lovely.

    I use this in the morning as I'm using a sample of the Ageless Renewal Cream at night (will be buying that as well). I use it after the brightening serum; I have oily/combo skin and I don't have to use a lot of either to get the moisturization my skin needs. It penetrates effortlessly into the skin and on the days I use foundation, my skin looks smoother than it ever has. Even without foundation, my skin looks healthy and I couldn't be happier.
  • Luxurious

    This moisturizer is surprisingly not as rich as I had feared - which is good for me, since I have oily skin. People with dry skin can still benefit from this moisturizer, though, by layering it over the Deep Brightening Serum (as is recommended by the Tatcha 4-Step Ritual). The combination of the serum and the moisturizer is too rich for my oily skin, so I have to use the 2 products separately, but it may be just the thing for people looking for intense hydration.

    This is indeed a very luxurious-feeling moisturizer that glides weightlessly over the skin. Being oily-skinned, I tend to equate facial shininess with oiliness, so I dislike moisturizers that impart any additional shine to my face; rich, creamy moisturizers tend to be the worst culprits, and you'll notice that both words (rich, cream-y) show up in the title of this moisturizer. Happily for me, though, the finish of this moisturizer is decidedly NOT shiny. After massaging this onto my face, my skin looks much the same as it does after cleaning - clean and natural.

    This moisturizer doesn't make me any more, or less, shiny/oily than I ordinarily am after a few hours. Thus, I do think that oily-skinned people can happily use this product, but at this price point, I think I would rather buy a moisturizer that has additional oil-absorbing properties. Of course, if Tatcha decides to develop such a product, I'll be first in line to buy it!
  • A Treatment for Generations

    Nevermind that this is one of my all time favorite nourishing products (and I've tested hundreds). What impressed me the most about this deceivingly light moisture cream is that my 60+ year old mother who has the most sensitive skin EVER - loves it.

    True story - we were sitting at dinner one night and after using this cream consistently for about 6 weeks, I noticed how much her skin has improved. Up to this point, she was using the same drugstore moisturizer for years because EVERYTHING gave her a rash. Everything.

    When I say improved, I mean its smoother, more even and firmer. And zero irritation.

    She had been using the small trial size from the Discovery Kit and "borrowing" from my big jar!! So we got her a lovely jar of her own for her birthday! A must have!
  • Fantastic for all skin types

    My skin is normal to dry and it’s on the sensitive side of the spectrum. My skin reacts poorly to a lot of products but I absolutely love the Moisture Rich Silk Cream. It provides heavy (in a good way!) moisture while sinking into the skin quickly. It leaves my skin feeling healthy and comfortable. It also makes my skin glow! It continues to hydrate the skin all day or night and makes skin feel silky while doing it. It works alone or under makeup and a little of this cream goes a very long way. I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful product.
  • Silky Smooth

    Wow I was blown away by this product I have dry skin and haven't found until now that is ...a moisturizer that would keep my skin hydrated thorough out the day. Now my skin is supple and hydrated. With winter coming my husbands skin started looking severely dry and because he saw how my skin had changed drastically he let me try it on him and his skin immediately soaked the lightweight moisturizer up and you could no longer tell he had flaky dry skin. A little goes a long way with this product and with this moisturizer delivering what it promises it is the perfect investment.
  • Moisture boost!

    This gel-cream is heaven in a jar and my dehydrated/combination skin loves it! I have seen significant changes in my skin (decrease in oiliness, less breakouts etc.) after a few weeks of using this product.

    Tip: Works well as a base under makeup and gives your skin that hydrated luminous glow!
  • Good for Oily, Acne Prone Skin

    I have very oily skin but this product never seems to increase my oiliness or breakouts which is amazing. This cream is soft, silky and applies effortlessly on the skin. So I would definitely recommend this product to those who have oily, acne prone skin. It isn't greasy yet it provides the right amount of moisturizer. Im in my early 20s, so I'm not hugely concerned about wrinkles but this cream definitely has anti-aging properties which is great. Just remember to put on sunscreen after the cream dries, so you can protect your skin from the sun.
  • Showing off my pretty jar and....

    Omg!! I love everything about this Moisture Rich Silk Cream!!!

    In my life long search for the perfect cream, I've tried those expensive cream La xxx from the departement store to drug store brand but nothing seemed to be making any difference. I thought "then why care?!". From that point, it was fine as long as it does not contain some harsh chemicals. So when I saw this jar at Barney's my honest thought was more of "oh! what a cute jar! I really like this design and never seen anything like it!". When a person told me about the benefit of silk (and this cute ribbon is also actually hand made silk ribbon from Kyoto- really?!) I decided that I needed this in my shelf and I will give it a try. It was not cheap but boy!! Did I make a right decision. Now I not only enjoy looking at this beautiful jar everyday, I really enjoy the amazing benefit from the cream which actually works!! Amazing find and now I have two things to show off. My jar and my skin!!
  • Supple Skin - yes, indeed!

    So, I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect when the salesperson at Barney's told me this moisturizer was comprised of "liquid silk." As a serious skincare buyer, I've heard so many different product pitches over the years, but this cream is different. Silk is exactly what it feels like going on my skin, and the resulting softness is none other than silky smooth.
  • Not you Mom's mosturizing cream

    You can pretty much fry an egg on my forehead. That's how oily my skin can get... and I'm in my mid 30's!
    I honestly didn't want to purchase this cream so I received a sample.
    I had the serum and was happy using it as a treatment / moisturizer in the am's.

    The climate was started to get cold and I started topical treatments with my dermatologist and I noticed my skin needed an extra layer of moisture.

    I was so suprised to feel the light-weight fluffy consistency of this "cream"! My dry skin just sucked up the moisture; I even wear makeup over it without looking like a tragic mess by lunch!

    Keep some blotting papers on hand and your golden. I love the detail with the gold applicator and ribbon. Love all of it!!!
  • lightweight & non clogging

    My skin type: oily, but can easily dry out/sensitive. I really like the fact that this moisturizer is light, but does the job. It doesn't feel like I'm clogging my pores or keeping my skin from breathing; at the same time, my skin feels soft and hydrated.
  • Radiant

    I can see my skin has instance radiance! It feels incredibly smooth. I was able to apply my makeup directly afterwards which is typically difficult with really hydrating moisturizers. This is a wonderful product for anyone who wants to see and feel the instant difference in the smoothness of their skin.
  • Gentle, Soft, & Silky

    If there was one word to describe this product it would by silky (probably why it's in the title of the product). Most moisturizers are a little too creamy for me, but unfortunately my skin gets pretty dry so I usually need those creamy type moisturizers, which end up either causing breakouts or giving me a grease slick.

    This moisturizer is PERFECT! It moisturizes my skin without it looking like I just oiled my face up & leaves my skin silky smooth.

    I would definitely recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin or for someone where the drug store moisturizer just doesn't cut it.
  • does the trick

    This face lotion does the trick; softens without clogging pores or causing any oiliness later. Would love one that came with some SPF protection.
  • Polishing Powders and Silk Cream

    I have been using the 4 step skin care for three weeks and absolutely LOVE it! My skin has never felt so luxurious after using the polishing powder~ The brightening serum and silk cream leave my skin so very soft....truly an amazing product with great results!
