Why It Works

This special cleansing set combines the art of the tea ceremony, or otemae, with time-tested geisha beauty rituals for an elegant, effective way to care for your complexion. Individual bristles are trimmed with a razor to achieve varied lengths throughout the brush. This distinctive formation allows it to better reach pores and thoroughly purify skin.

How To Use

Suggested Usage

Sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon of any Polished Rice Enzyme Powder into the center of the bowl, slowly add a few drops of water and use the brush to combine, producing a luxurious foam. Hold the brush perpendicular to the surface of the skin and make small, circular motions to apply the foam to the face for 10-20 seconds. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Follow with the remaining treatments in your beauty ritual.

After daily use, rinse the brush under warm running water for several seconds. Gently squeeze from the base to the tip with fingers or towel to remove excess moisture. Hang the brush on the stand to dry, bristles facing downward.

Original Facial Cleansing Brush by Kashoen 1883 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little surprised I know what you're paying for in this set is the brush, but I was surprised to find that neither the bowl nor the base was porcelain. (I hadn't read the 'ingredients' list on the page.) It is a cute enough set for the bathroom sink, but I think it would add a level of elegance to have had both the base and the bowl of china rather than lacquered wood (bowl) or clear plastic (base). Also, I had to take the word of other reviewers that Kashoen brushes are so coveted and costly, because I can't find any English websites that talk about that brand, except Tatcha's website. I will keep the set, but would probably not purchase it as a gift for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO much better than my Clarisonic! I ordered this immediately after I saw the feature on refinery29 because my dermatologist told me my clarisonic was too harsh and thinning my sensitive skin. I wasn't sure what to expect because I had not ever heard of using a brush like this to cleanse and exfoliate, but let me just say I was blown away ... my skin felt just as soft and smooth, with no redness or irritation at all. It worked particularly well around the nose area because it is able to really reach into every pore ... I know I'm not supposed to touch my face a lot but it's hard not to because I just can't believe the difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you Tatcha for my favorite find of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth but not drying This was a risky splurge, but having read about Kashoen brushes it was a calculated risk. I have found it to be worth it. The results, using both the indigo as well as the regular rice polish, are great. Using the powder on its own is good but my oily and uneven textured skin is noticeably smoother when using this brush and bowl. Nor does it feel tight or dried out as it, as it sometimes can after using other kinds face cleaning tools. My only reservation is that even when washed thoroughly, blue residue from the indigo polish is still lodged in the bristles high up near the ferrule, and i worry this might damage the brush over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Set that works wonders for the skin I love Tatcha products. ever since I started using their skincare my skin has never looked better. I have very sensitive skin so items like the Clarisonic irritate it. I have a few Kashoen makeup brushes, and absolutely adore them. When I saw this special set I had to get one. I love the Rice Enzyme powder, and this set makes it super easy to generate a lather, and the brush is such a pleasure to use. It really cleans my pores and skin, helps with circulation, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and feels really nice. I also love how beautiful it looks. Considering Kashoen Brushes run about 75-1000 dollars the price of this set is amazing! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Its like a little spa in a bowl I have used face brushes before and always on the hunt a new one. So when I saw this beatiful set, I immediately was interested and thought i would give it a try. OMG! was it the best face wash I ever had. It feels so soft and luxurious on my face and I really look forward to this face wash at the end of the day. it is almost like a spa in a bowl! The lacquer bowl and stand adds nice touch on my bathroom counter. Perfect gift for holiday for someone who has everything! I bet my sister doesn't have this and I am going to have to surprise her with this beautiful ritual! Thank you TATCHA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my Clarisonic The Clarisonic was starting to irritate my thinning and sensitive skin. I tried their Luxe Cashmere brush head, but my skin never felt clean. I am so happy that I purchased this special cleansing set. It looks beautiful on my vanity. The brush is very soft, but effective. I love the rice enzyme powder even more since using it with this set. The brush creates a nice foam consistency, while using less product. My skin is so bright after using the brush. The entire experience is luxurious and relaxing. The combination of using this set and other amazing Tatcha products, my skin is no longer irritated and looks amazing. I had dinner with a friend and she said I look younger every time she sees me. I told her about my Tatcha ritual. The next day she texted me to say she placed her first Tatcha order!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this set! The brush creates amazing lather with the polishing powder, much less messy than using my hands. I'm actually glad the bowl is lacquered rather than porcelain, I'm pretty sure I would've chipped or cracked it by now considering how often I'm using it and then drying it! One problem I had: Maybe on the third use the gold bead chain that you use to hang the brush fell off when I was rinsing the brush in the sink and must have gone down the drain before I even noticed it was gone. So I'll need to find something else to thread through there. I've been gently blotting the rinsed brush with a microfiber towel and placing it inside the dry bowl and it seems to dry just fine, but obviously you miss out on the aesthetic of the stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from POLISHED ORIGINAL FACIAL BRUSH BY KASHOEN 1883 First of all, I must admit I was seduced by just the appearance of the set. When it arrived even the packaging was beautiful. Hello...Tatcha...of course it was! Such exquisite workmanship in all the elements. Now, after a just few days of use I am delighted with the exfoliating power of the Kashoen 1883 Brush. So gentle yet so effective. Along with the Akari Gold Massager my evening ritual is pure bliss!

Assuming I purchase this set and use the brush for 3 years, will it ever be possible to purchase only the brush to replace the old brush?

Asked by: uchu_uju_yuzhou

Can you use cleansers other than the rice  polish such as cleansing foams, gels, and lotions?

Asked by: NGK13
Thank you so much for your question! This set has been specifically designed for use with The Rice Polish, whipping it up into a light, airy foam. The texture of the brush hairs perfectly aids in the removal of dull, dead cells as you buff the skin with rice enzymes. Therefore, we suggest The Rice Polish as the best item to accompany this set. Unfortunately, we do not have any feedback regarding the effectiveness of other types of face washes used with this brush and bowl.

On the Kashoen site, their brush is made of natural goat hair.  Why does this brush have synthetic hair as well?

Asked by: PoodleMom
Thank you for your question! After much research, we landed on this blend of hair because it was best for both exfoliation and durability over time. We hope this helps!
