Rated 5 out of 5 by from so great My brother and I both have these weird tiny red dots on the back of our arms that get worse when the weather is dry. Growing up we thought everyone has them, or it's because we didn't shower enough, then recently my cousin went to the dermatologist and she was told that this is really common in East Asians. It's a hereditary thing and just needs a lot of hydration. This blue body butter works wonders! I gifted some to my brother and together with the exfoliating rice enzyme powder before hand, we are no longer embarrassed to show our arms in broad daylight! The dots are getting smaller and smaller and some disappeared already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Amazing Smurfs I have psoriasis on the back of my neck and eczema on the top of my feet and my lower back. It has been itchy since 2009 and the red patches are very irritating to me daily. Since starting the Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter, I immediately stopped the Cortopin 1% w/w cream and Emollient A518.52. The Body Butter helped calm my lower back and the top of my feet instantly and I am using the Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream to soothe my psoriasis on the back of my neck. Both brilliant products are my healing habits conducive to good healthy skin. I have faith in them and definitely will buy the full sizes :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The struggle is OVER I have struggled over the years to find a butter that does what it says it’s supposed to. I finally found it with Tatcha. For as long as I can remember I’ve struggled with super dry skin on my legs and annoying itchy bumps on the back of my arms. Other lotions just say on top and did nothing. I just got my indigo butter today and WOW. INSTANTLY my skin looks petal soft and I can actually feel it working which is strange lol. The irritation on my dry legs and bumpy arms immediately stopped and I didn’t even need that much which is awesome because the container is pretty big! FOREVER A FAVORITE!! Thank you so much for putting love and care into your products because that is what truly works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pass me the Butter Please! I cannot describe how much I love this body butter. I have very dry skin and always have to apply my drugstore lotion at least twice a day, sometimes more, to stay moisturized. This butter is the bomb! I use it once a day after my shower and my skin stays super soft all day and all night. Where have you been all my life? Love the smell, love the color, and even love the look of it on my bathroom vanity. I started with a sample, and it was love at first touch. More like liquid silk, and a little goes a long way so the full-size jar is a lot of product. Bonus, my cuticles on both my hands and feet are soft and completely healed. I will never be without this amazing silky cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life changing This is the best body butter I have ever used in my life! I recently developed a skin conditioner called Pityriasis Rocea and got these ugly red scaly circles all over my torso. Nothing helped them for weeks. I ordered this cream as a last resort and using it twice a day for THREE DAYS the rash is almost 100% gone!! That is incredible. On top of that, I also noticed using this on my arms helped the tiny little bumps I had on the back of my arms forever actually disappear. The blue color is mesmerizing, the smell is light and delightful and it sinks right into the skin leaving my now now feeling softer than satin. Thank you TATCHA!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and beautiful Such a beautiful product, from the color to the scent to the texture, I just love it. I have severe eczema on my hands on winter and I have tried many high end creams and butters, natural products, etc, this is the only thing that works. I look forward to using it every night before bedtime. I usually avoid scented products because they burn my hands and clash with my perfume but this does neither. Im obsessed with the scent and color, Tatcha team, please make a body lotion in this scent and ingredients because its all I want to use !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Pure Silk I can't count the number of skin products I've used and discarded over the past 40 years because they just didn't work or were too greasy-feeling. I saw an ad for this product in Marie Claire Magazine and was attracted by the Indigo in it as I'm an avid herbalist. In a few words: it works. The texture is as smooth as silk...not too thin and not too thick. The scent is pleasantly light and natural and the color is gorgeous. (The color does not show when you rub it in.) I've been using it on my legs (which are very dry) and after only a few days, my legs are visibly smoother and much softer. I'm sold on the body butter and plan to try other products in this line. Thanks, Tatcha, for a superior, affordable body butter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I could love this! I REALLY wanted to love this cream. Others have said it is sticky but the term which it would be better suited is tacky or gummy, when it dries. It takes too long to absorb for me and I have SUPER dry skin, so dry in fact I use lotion mixed with body oil every time I get out of the shower year round. It gets 3 stars though one for smell, one for softness it gives my skin, and the other for consistency. I am a product junkie and have tried many, many different products and am always looking for a great lotion without having to use oil too and this one does that but the absorption just takes to long and leaves a tacky feeling to my skin for hours afterwards. I will be using the rest for a foot lotion which is working great for that use! I still love Tatcha and recommend their products though!!

Can I use it to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy?

Asked by: Lina4
Thank you for your question! Many of our friends have anecdotally told us they have used this to help boost skin's resilience during and after pregnancy for a lessening of stretch marks. Indigo helps soothe inflammation in skin and silk extract keeps moisture locked without feeling heavy or sticky. We hope this helps!
