Asayake Face Massage

Meaning "morning glow" in Japanese, the Asayake Massage uses a chilled Akari Gold Massager to tighten and awaken skin.

1) Glide the massager up along the neck.
2) Move upward from the center of the chin along the jawbone, applying light pressure.
3) Lay the tool against your nose and move outward along the orbital bone.
4) Place the tool above your eyebrow and glide upwards towards the hairline.
Repeat five times on each side of the face, using the broad side.

Yuyake Face Massage

This "evening glow" massage uses a warm massager to release tension and detoxify through lymphatic draining.

1) Begin just above the hairline and move in a back-and-forth motion on the scalp.
2) Press the massager above the inner corner of the eyebrow and slide outward along the brow, stopping in front of the ear.
3) Press tool to the base of the nose and move outward along cheekbone.
4) Place the massager behind the ear and draw down along the jaw and neck to the collarbone.
Repeat five times on each side of the face, using the narrow side.

Mezame Eye Massage

Meaning "awakening" in Japanese, the Mezame Eye Massage helps rejuvenate and refresh tired eyes.

1) Place the narrow end of the tool at the outer corner of the eye. Applying almost no pressure, slide the massager towards the nose.
2) Place the tool at the inner corner of the eye and, applying a bit more pressure, slide outward along the browline.
Repeat five times on each eye with a cool massager.

  • Love this!

    I splurged on this as a birthday gift for myself and what a treat. I use this before I go to sleep and when I wake up in the morning. I'll most likely buy a second one to keep at room temperature but I have to say, I really love this massager.
  • I prefer the old massager.

    The Akari Chrystal Massager looked more appealing, in my opinion. But still, this massager looks like such a real treat.
  • I prefer the old massager.

    To be honest, I kind of prefer the old Chrystal Akari Massager more. I wonder if they still have it.
    But nevertheless, this massager looks so fancy.
  • So gorgeous!

    This arrived today (a special birthday treat for myself!) and it is just stunning. The tiny imperfections in the golden surface just cement that its not some form of paint, but rather a real sheet of gold leafing, I rushed right over to get a cup of hot water to put it in, so i could try it out with the Yuyake evening massage. Gentle heated bliss. I can tell I will also be using this when i have sinus pain issues and want a quick warm therapy.
  • 5 star product!

    Beautiful (as are all things Tatcha) and perfect for facial massage. I found Tatcha a couple of years ago and am really pleased with all products I've ordered. Gorgeous packaging, amazing customer service, exceptional products ... love, love, love all things Tatcha! The redesigned Akari massager is an integral part of my am and pm facial routine. Highly recommend this item!
