How To Use

Suggested Usage

Begin with dry hands and face. Gently massage 3-5 pumps of the Cleansing Oil onto face to melt away impurities. Rinse.

Begin with wet hands and face. Pour 1/2 teaspoon of the Rice Polish into hands and rub together to create a creamy foam. Gently massage onto face for 15 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Rinse.

Pour a palmful of The Essence into your hand, put your palms together and press gently into the skin on your face and neck.

Gently massage a pearl-sized amount of the Indigo Cream onto face, neck and décolletage in upward strokes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have you been ?! OMG Tatcha where have you been all my life!? I just purchased the Starter Ritual Set and my goodness I have never been more in love! How is it possible that after the FIRST time using it I already saw results. I have NEVER seen results from something so quick... first use! I’ve used the set for the past 2 nights and my old acne scars have already started to diminish.. a lot. My face is SO much smoother and brighter.. I am freaking out over here! I can’t stop looking in the mirror. After one day my acne scars are soooo much lighter.. how is this possible?! I need to meet face to face with whomever created Tatcha and give them a giant kiss! It is the BEST!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure what happened I think having starter kits shows how much confidence Tatcha has for its products, and rightfully so. I purchased the full-size set before I even finished with this one. After just one week my skin became brighter. I let my sister try the powder enzyme and she is hooked immediately. For my other concerns like acne, hyperpigmentation and expression lines, it took a bit of time but I do see improvements after a month. My skin only behaves when I am on medication. I am not sure what happened, Tatcha works. It sounds strange but I do look forward to the cleansing and moisturizing ritual every day. The scent, the aftermath, I would say it is totally worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAVED MY SKIN After trying a new foundation, my skin was so dry and falling off my face in chunks! Nothing I normally use was working. Finally I came across a video by Nicol Concilio recommending Tatcha, and I knew I needed to try this product. Within 3 uses my skin was back to normal, but better! My pores were smaller and most already completely gone! My acne scars even started fading! This starter kit has been lasting me now for a month. And I have just under half of everything left, except for the essence. If you are worried because you have acne prone skin, don't be! I have suffered from acne since high school and my skin has never looked and felt better! Tatcha is 1000000% worth the investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing kit ! I wanted this Tatcha kit to try for a long time but it is a bit expensive. Everyone is raving about how amazing Tatcha's products are and that you have to try them. So after struggling with other creams and products cheap and expensive from other brands I gave this a try and I loveee it soooo much! My dry skin is refreshed, soft, glowing, I don't have any dry patches on my face anymore. The results were showing after just a few days of using this kit! I will purchase more of Tatcha's products and this kit in full size, I don't care if it's expensive its worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Hooked I recently purchased the starter kit for normal to dry skin. I am on Day 3 of using these 4 products and I don't have enough words to describe the difference in my skin in just three days. My skin is softer, more hydrated and plump and just looks and feels incredible. I will be purchasing full sizes of each of them as I get closer to running out of this initial kit. While pricey, I see Tatcha as being comparably priced or even a bit less expensive in some cases than other high quality skin care lines. My skin is aging, but taking care of it is very important to me no matter my age.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eternal love I was so happy with this set, every product makes my skin glow. Oil-base cleanser smells very good and pure, no strong flavor, perfect even for oily skin. Powder - cool 2-in-1 product - cleanse and exfoliate at the same time. I wish this powder turn into foam more easily, it's hard to mix powder and water in right ratio. Essence is everything for skincare! Water cream... I can't say any pro or cons about this product, I wish more product in this set. Every product I've used for month and only water cream for 2 weeks. And, yes, I'm so crazy about package - it's just piece of art!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the Results! Maybe I'm feeling maudlin but I remember my first pimple at eight years old, it only got worse through the years. I wore so much make up- without it people didn't recognize me. I had a job selling another brand of skincare, but I couldn't lie and tell people their concerns would be fixed. But with this, for the first time my skin is clear! I'm seeing such a difference, I don't even wear powder on dates. My skin is clear and pretty for the first time in forty years! I can even use some of the cream blushes without the expectant break out. So thank you for your technology that made it. It works, it does what it says it will and that is rare. I'm babbling, sorry I do that. Just wanted to say TATCHA makes good stuff and I am happy when I look in a mirror!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing!!! I’ve struggled with acne and acne scaring for the past i’d say 8 years. I’ve tried everything under the sun and spent tons on dermatologist prescribed products but nothing has helped me more than Tatcha. I’ve only been using it for about a month and people are telling me my skin looks clearer than it’s ever been! My redness is reduced dramatically and my skin is bright and dewy now. For best results stay consistent with use, I’m very inconsistent with washing my face and even i’ve seen results so i’m sure if you are using this product every day you will see even bigger changes more quickly!! Thanks Tatcha for making me more confident in my skin again!

I have sensitive skin that is also acne prone. I have the Balancing starter kit and love it but am wondering if I should try the Sensitive kit. How would you recommend deciding which kit is best for my skin?

Asked by: Rebecca

The Indigo cream was working well with me when it was colder and drier, but now I am becoming irritated by the cloying moisture. I liked the water cream feel the one night I used it, but its scent was overpowering. What other moisturizer should I try?

Asked by: Holly
Try The Silk Cream which is a lightweight gel moisturizer for normal to dry skin!

Do you recommend doing all four steps twice/day or how often should I being doing each step? 

Asked by: Carolinep
You can use all the items in this ritual every day, twice a day. You may want to consider using less of the Camellia Cleansing in your morning routine because there is less oily residue to remove. Enjoy! Always, TATCHA
