The Indigo Cream is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not effective with eczema as original I have to echo the ratings and feedback of the previous customer. I became a Tatcha fan because of the Indigo line. This is not effective with eczema skin. And I have doubts if this current formula received the same National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance as the original. I was also dismayed to see the Indigo butter is sold out and I'm afraid that they'll change that formula, too. I just think that Tatcha is losing it's way and it's hard to get behind this brand anymore. The Silk cream and Indigo line were the stars in their lineup and I don't understand why they changed the formula instead of increasing the skincare line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finicky skin savior My skin cannot wear 99% of the moisturizers out there on the market. I get hives, breakouts, redness, burning, you name it. I saw this at Sephora and was intrigued. Then I started to see Tatcha everywhere I went- online, in magazines, etc. So I went online and decided to buy the travel size. This cream feels so silky on. I love that it's blue, but the color immediately fades away as you spread it on. My skin now looks plump, glowy, and healthy. It wears well under my CC cream, which used to irritate me once in awhile, but with this under it, no longer. No irritations have come along to haunt me. I am investing in the full size immediately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey, good product, but not enough!!! I just bought this cream three days ago and I have been loving it! Cleared up dry patches and red spots from my seasonal allergies and hydrated my always dry face in the height of Arizona sun. On the third day of using it I noticed a little bubble in the cream. Curious, I dug down to see how far it went. Take a look at the pictures attached, the bubble is about 1/4 of the bottle!!!! For a product as pricey as this one, I expected to receive as much as I paid for, not a cream that is 25% gone upon the first three days of use....good product but honestly disappointed that the packaging makes it seem like you get a lot and you end up with way less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Miracle! Six years ago I literally became allergic to everything. Head to toe itchy body rash that would not go away. I finally went to a dermatologist that tested me for everything and low and behold I was having a severe allergic reaction to everything. I have to wear gloves when I cook, can’t clean my house, can’t wear makeup, moisturizers etc.… I discovered this product about a month ago. It’s been a few weeks now and my skin looks and feels amazing. I have had no breakouts. I feel like it’s a miracle. I look forward to putting on your products everyday—makes me feel like a woman again. I will never be without Tatcha. It has been a life changer for me. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting Me Through Chemo! I was recently diagnosed with cancer and just began chemo treatment. The steroids I have to take to prevent reactions cause my cheeks to turn hot, super pink, and blister. I use this wonderful cream on my cheeks to calm this down and in less than two days, my skin looks as if nothing happened. I've gotten smart and now I use the cream on my cheeks before I take the steroids. The only skin care I use is Tatcha. I never knew I'd need this particular cream for this reason, but it's definitely in my battle kit! Thank you Tatcha (and thank you for the kind notes and the beautiful amulet for good luck!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The VERY Best My aging, dry, sensitive, breakout prone, flaky skin is now smooth, clear, soft, intact and even my pores are less noticeable. This is truly a miracle cream. I have tried almost everything for so many years. I was having so much trouble wearing foundation. My skin was terribly flaky. I tried this and at first used WAY too much. It takes such a little amount to cover my entire face and neck. This is an amazing cream and I never want to be without it. Thanks for providing the travel sizes and for all the gifts and promotions. I like many of your products, yet this one is ESSENTIAL for me. Thank you for transforming my complexion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Too bad Tatcha had to change another great moisturizer. First the Silk cream, now the Indigo cream! This newer version isn’t nearly as effective on eczema. It also doesn’t have the emolience the necessary for eczema prone skin. This soaks right into the skin. They should have brought this in as a new day version and kept the previous version for the evenings. So disappointed! The silk cream was amazing also, and they went and changed that formulation as well. I will now have to change skincare lines. It was good while it lasted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have, sensitive skin or no I totally ruined my skin with one of those acne treatments as a teenager (not naming names) and now it's really sensitive and flares up with just about anything I put on it. But when I tried this cream, it was like my skin was heaving a sigh of relief. No sign of redness, no little bumps, nothing but happy glowing skin. But I think it's important to note that this cream isn't JUST for sensitive skin! Both my parents, my sister, and several friends have all tried mine and are buying for themselves because it's such a great texture and really does do the things it says! The little lines around my mom's eyes are totally gone. It's amazing. Run, don't walk to get this little treasure.

Why the color is different to the old version? It looks less indigo color than. Were the ingredients changed?

Asked by: ayakome
Great question! Our scientists at the Tatcha Institute have been working to enhance this moisturizer by adding even more calming indigo which is from a blend of two extracts from the Indigo plant, one of which is naturally blue and the other which is naturally colorless. The result is a formula that has the same luxurious texture, even better efficacy and the lighter blue color that you have noted. We hope this helps!

How is this different from the indigo soothing triple recovery cream that was in the purple container? Or is it the same?

Asked by: ssdgm

Will the blue hue show on my skin?

Colloidal Oatmeal changed from 3% to 2%. Why is that?

Asked by: mishka743
We love feedback from our clients because we always want to make formulas that are as beautiful as they are. One of the asks we often received on the Indigo Face Cream was that a smoother texture would make it an even better pair for makeup. To achieve this, we reduced the Colloidal Oatmeal by 1% but increased the Indigo Extract and added our new Hadasei-3 to advance the efficacy of the formula. As a result, the new Indigo Face Cream is just as soothing and efficacious as the original formula with a more elegant, comforting texture. We hope this helps!
