In the West, geisha are known for their intricate stage makeup. In the East however, she is known for the "mochi hada" or "baby skin" beneath her performance makeup. Her rituals are deceptively and brilliantly simple though.
The foundation of her classic beauty ritual is brilliantly effective and deceptively simple — a trio of powerful anti-oxidants, each fulfilling a key role in her regimen:
Green Tea — the healing protector
Rice Bran — the nourishing exfoliant
Okinawa Red Algae — the replenishing moisturizer
These anti-oxidant rich ingredients are at the heart of a diet credited with the extraordinary longevity of the Japanese people.
What is the ritual?
TATCHA's skincare collection is a recreation of the classic beauty essentials used for centuries by geisha, famed for their pure, polished, radiant and supple skin.
How many steps are in the ritual?
TATCHA's skincare ritual has 4 effortless steps:
1. Purifying — melt away impurities + even waterproof makeup in just one easy step
2. Polishing — reveal skin's natural pearly luster with an enzyme exfoliant
3. Brighten — boost the skin's natural radiance by diminishing the look of age spots
4. Nourishing — bring the youthful suppleness of skin back by repleneshing vital nutrients and moisture
How do I use this ritual?
Step 1: PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
Step 2: POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder
Step 3: RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum
Step 4: SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream
How long does the ritual take?
TATCHA's skincare philosophy is one of simplicity and effortlessness. The entire ritual can be completed in 3 minutes.
Will this work for me if I am not Asian?
Yes, the benefits of this skincare collection can be enjoyed by all ethnicities because the formulas work to return skin to its original state of balance, the beautiful skin that we were all born with.
How long will it take to see results?
When used as a ritual daily, morning and night, results can be seen as quickly as 2 weeks. For optimal results, continue for at least 8 weeks.
What is the core ingredient in the collection?
At the heart of all TATCHA skincare essentials is our HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex, a trio of time-tested extracts of Green Tea, Okinawa Red Algae and Japanese Rice Bran. Extremely rich in Epigallocatechin, Beterhelin and Inositol, these potent extracts work together to nourish and boost the skin's barrier function inside and out. The result is beauty in balance — skin that is pure, polished, radiant and supple.
I have sensitive skin. Can I use these products?
All of TATCHA's skincare essentials are dermatologist tested, non-irritating and non-sensitizing. We formulate without mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, PEGs, PPGs, urea, DEA, TEA and phthalates.
What is the difference between the Gentle Ritual for Normal + Combination Skin and the Ritual for Normal + Combination Skin?
The one difference between the two versions of this Ritual is the Gentle version contains a Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder whereas the Ritual for Normal + Combination Skin contains a Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. TATCHA recommends the Gentle Powder for those with sensitive skin. For clients who do not have sensitive skin, the Gentle powder can also be kept on the skin for a longer period of time to replicate the strength of the Classic Powder.
Best way to try and fall in love with everything!I started with a small sample of the classic rice enzyme powder being handed out in a local store. From there I came to the website to see what else was available and found this starter kit. I thought that if the rice powder made such an overnight difference in my skin, I had to try other products in the line and I am so glad I did! Not only has the rice powder cleaned my skin, the serum has brightened my skin, and the moisture cream has given me back the hydration I thought I had lost forever. Other product lines left my skin raw, or greasy, or with breakouts, but this has healed my skin and it looks beautiful. Years of sun damage are almost imperceptible and I have only been using this for about one month so far. I tried switching out the serum and using something else (because it is so expensive!) but my skin just didn't have that glow and it didn't feel as comfortable as when using the entire kit together. I have used cheaper skin care, and more expensive, too, but this is what I have been searching for all my life. My skin is super sensitive, I have rosacea, sun damage, discoloration - you name it, it's etched on my face. However, my "elevens" between my brows are softened, sun spots are gone, rosacea finally calmed and even broken capillaries from my 20s are less visible. Everyone should try these products. The starter kit is a great way to discover what works best for you. I think it's wonderful that we are given a chance to try these products before spending a lot on full size items. The customer service, the speed of shipping, the care of the packaging - everything has been a fantastic experience here and I look forward to years of trying more products from this company. You have nothing to lose by trying this skin care package. It's really amazing.Read More
Clearer skin for me!This is my first review of Tatcha products. I ordered the starter set and then graduated to a full set. I'm in my 50s so I have ageing skin - it's not in a bad shape probably bec of good genes, but still I had whiteheads or impurities and sometimes tired looking skin. I found the cleansing ritual fantastic - the oil is the best in the market and I've tried a few (Shu, RMK etc). The scrub is the clincher for me in terms of clearing away stuff that's stuck in my pores. Some products work for a few months then stop working, I hope this doesn't happen. Anyway I will certainly buy again!Read More
Ritual for Normal/Combo skin9/03/2014Read More
I work for a large cosmetics store and I have tried all types of skin creams to moisturize my dry skin. My favorite was Amour Pacific.
I happened to come meet some young Asian girls who had skin like milk. I decided to investigate this. On the internet I came across this brand. I purchased the Ritual Discovery Kit for Normal/Combo skin. The reviews were just what I was looking for, moist, radiant, clean, younger skin. The oil cleanser rids my face of my heavy makeup. The cleansing powder is very effective, (I've used Perter Thomas Roth, Murad etc. with harsh grains in them) by far, this has been the best for my skin, ( I use my Clarisonic). The Radiant deep brightening serum sinks into my skin as well as the rich silk cream. I pat these last two into by cleansed skin. I am a young 70 years old. I intend to fight old dry shriveled skin for the next 30 years!
Now when I wake up in the morning my face is moist and hydrated. My skin is radiant and glowing!!! There is plenty of product in this starter kit for maybe 5 or 6 weeks. I am so happy with TATCHA that I have ordered the Ritual for Norm/Combo Skin in the full sizes already. Forget Amour Pacific. Tatcha's great customer service ( I ordered on a Monday and received shipment on Wednsday), however the best part is my skin. If you can't decide, just think $59.00 will just buy a so-so face cream.
I've worked in the cosmetic field all my adult life and I can tell you this is a great product.
