It works! - my story 4 youWas I a skeptic? Yes.Read More
*I received a sample 1st +rice enzyme powder.. I had not yet started using the cleansing oil or exfoliating rice enzyme powder. *I used 1/2 of serum packet & it felt sticky even rolled off with dead skin?
Then I thought about what my ultimate goal was! To find a new complete skin care regimen. *So, I opened cleansing oil sample along with the enzyme powder to cleanse/exfoliate. After cleansing, exfoliating again, I applied the hydrating serum and it sunk right in. I actually added a bit more but didn't keep overly massaging. After 10 minutes the tackiness was gone.
I discovered that my first application and even the scond of the serum was off because I had not exfoliated enough yet!
Then came the QVC appearance and all of the knowledgeI have attained over the years clicked in. Why was the product soaking in without the luminosity at first? Why did it work better the second time(s)
It was all about not getting that dry layer of old skin cells off. That's why it worked after using the enzyme powder a couple of times.
No serum that is to soak in, plump, & give the appearance of lift is going to really get into that fresh layer of skin without exfoliation!
Overuse of a product often leads to a confusing/unsuccessful experience. Not having skin ready to absorb serums does the same.
Next, I ordered a cleansing trio special. Cleans & exfoliate with cleansing oil + rice enzyme powder. Tried the sample serum again was starting love it.
I knew it worked but the price was holding me back. Then Tatcha had gift with purchase special - a (travel size serum) so I went for it & bought the full size hydrating serum & another Dewey mist (awesome)
My skin turned completely around by using the tried and true 3 basic steps -cleanse, exfoliate/ tone & moisturize/hydrate.
Deep hydrating serum works for me They key was preparing my skin for it!
*Let it set for a few minutes before applying something else. *Don't keep touching or rubbing it. *It will warm up, mix with your skins natural oil , like it's spreading. *you will see & feel the lift, the glow.
*Water! Get a bottle that puts out a fine mist, fill with purified water or similar. After serum application - mist face . After the water soaks in and it is completely dry you will feel the slight enhancement of further gentle tightening/lift effect.
*What it does for me is- helps further hydrate - sets the serum, so to speak & seems to help it further soak in along with the purified water.
*long little story, I know , but I want to help!*
* Bottom line make sure your skin is prepared 2 receive serum! Apply as much as you need but be mindful of too much! Use a pure water mist to enhance effect! Don't rub serum or keep touching it for a few minutes.
Think about it. We aren't supposed to keep touching anything we put on our face.
*I wrote this for those who mentioned sticky or tackiness! & for all of u because, I want you to experience the product as it is meant to be -Before u say yay or nay.
Makes your face extremely stickyThis product is decently hydrating which is nice for my slightly dry skin. However, after applying this serum, my face feels extremely sticky. The only products I use before this serum are my toner and SK-II essence, neither which are sticky at all. I tried applying a loose powder to make my face less sticky but it doesn't do much. When I apply my makeup, it's splotchy. Foundation applies easy enough but the stickiness comes through. Other products I apply like blush, highlighter, and bronzer come out splotchy. I'm not sure if I'm using the serum incorrectly. I shook the product prior to use as well.Read More
This Serum leaves face sticky, making makeup application difficult.
