Why It Works

  • Richly hydrates: A new complete liquid silk protein, which parallels the amino acid structure of human skin, forms a whisper light, moisture-binding veil on the skin.
  • Imparts a youthful radiance: Beneath the silk, our Hadasei-3™ complex, a trinity of anti-aging Japanese superfoods, restores a healthy-looking glow.
  • Gives the look of firmer skin: New Akoya Pearl extract helps to protect skin from the yellowing or browning that comes with age for more supple skin.


Ideal for normal, combination/dry and dry skin. Non-comedogenic. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing. Dermatologist tested. Cruelty-free.
Formulated without:
Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, urea, DEA, TEA or phthalates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing under makeup and moisturising. The first time I used this was when I went to Sephora and got a sample of it and I'm glad I did. I applied it under my makeup and I was amazed at how my makeup looked flawless by the end of the day. I ended up ordering the full size from the tatcha website and I'm very happy with my purchase. Mind you, this cream is targeted towards combination/dry skin. I have oily/dry/sensitive and this really worked for me. It also does not irritate the skin. I would definitely recommend this cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I had to write a review. If you are thinking about buying this product, do it! The lotion is the perfect balance for someone with combination (and seasonal) skin. I suffer from dry dehydrated skin in the winter that likes to break out and I get a couple months of summer where it tames down till tropical humidity hits and I am an oil factory. The Moisture Rich Silk Cream has changed my world! I can use this product year round without worry. It isn't too heavy and it is just enough moisture for my skin to soak up. It leaves this wonderful silky feel that creates a great foundation for applying make-up. Please don't ever stop making your beautiful products Tatcha! You have given me the gift of clear, soft, beautiful skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I'm 51, and live in a cold, dry town. My teaching job requires me to use blackboard chalk and markers a lot. AND the skin on the back of my hands had a tendency to be dry. I've tried out many different kinds of moisturizers, none of which made much of a difference. Then I tried the TATCHA silk cream moisturizer. After just ONE use, my hands started looking about TWO decades younger. I kept staring at them in disbelief, thinking my contact lenses were fogged up, but it was real. Yes, the product is pricey, but I'm going to cut down on other expenses and buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I'm 63 and have never found a gentle enough moisturizer that doesn't make me breakout on my sensitive skin. Yes, even at my age! I use this at night and the Deep Brightening Serum during the day because both are very hydrating and not oily or greasy. The products sink into the skin and do not just lay on top as with some, leaving your face still tight and dry. I have discovered that these products are all I need and that for years I've been over doing it with skin treatments. No more blemishes now! TY Tatcha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from litirally made my skin feel like silk i got a sample jar of this from a store and i have been using it for so long about a month everyday with that one tiny jar. This is the best mousterizer i have ever used. i cannot aford the real one but this sample made my skin feeel like litiral silk omg i am thirteen and i have gone through a lot of mousterizers i went through i have the water creme and it does not do this one justice. I love this so so much if you don't mind the price then don't give it a second thought.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm the exception :( I must be the only human whose skin did not benefit from half the products I tried. I'm guessing I must be allergic to one or more of the ingredients. Despite it being "non-irritating" and "non-sensitizing", my face completely rejected this cream. Upon contact my face got hot/flushed, (which eventually went away after a few minutes fortunately). I didn't think too much of it since the heat went away and I assumed it was part of the anti-aging effect, kind of like how glycolic acids make your skin tingly, but woke up the next morning with redness and little whiteheads all over. So it both irritated my skin AND clogged my pores. I had the same experience with the brightening serum and indigo treatment. Luckily, I can use the cleanser and enzyme powder with no issues and absolutely love both those products. So not all is lost :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely not only for dry skin! Whoever decided that this moisturizer should be categorized as for "normal to dry" skin, should reconsider. This moisturizer was perfect for my dehydrated combination acne prone sensitive skin - which sometimes breaks out even from the anti-acne products! I like various gel type or water creams, however they only hydrate short term (you want to apply more in two minutes), and this one makes all hydration stay inside. Also quite often products with antiaging benefits tends to be oriented to drier skin and breaks combination/sensitive skin out. I got a Deluxe Sample of this product with some order, and now back for full size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin saver! I'm working with oily-combination skin, so I'm not necessarily the ideal candidate, but I decided to try The Silk Cream out as a nighttime moisturizer. For several weeks I've been waking up with softer, plumper, brighter skin, so it gets 5 stars for me for expected use. Today, though, it really shined: I had a disastrous experience with another brand's mask seriously dehydrating and irritating my skin, so much so that after three applications of The Essence as well as my regular Water Cream, my skin was still red, sore, and parched. Enter Silk Cream. This product relieved the pain immediately and in under an hour the damage to my face was undone, my skin was back to normal. I'll never be without this! Thank you Tatcha!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not you Mom's mosturizing cream You can pretty much fry an egg on my forehead. That's how oily my skin can get... and I'm in my mid 30's! I honestly didn't want to purchase this cream so I received a sample. I had the serum and was happy using it as a treatment / moisturizer in the am's. The climate was started to get cold and I started topical treatments with my dermatologist and I noticed my skin needed an extra layer of moisture. I was so suprised to feel the light-weight fluffy consistency of this "cream"! My dry skin just sucked up the moisture; I even wear makeup over it without looking like a tragic mess by lunch! Keep some blotting papers on hand and your golden. I love the detail with the gold applicator and ribbon. Love all of it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin like velvet! I originally purchased the trial kit and after a few days of using this moisturizer, I noticed a real difference in my skin texture. Shortly after I finished the trial size, I went in for a microdermabrasion treatment that left me with severe dry patches. I ended up using a moisturizer and balm from another line (old products I had lying around) and still woke up with patchy dry skin. Finally, this moisturizer arrived and in one night, my skin was instantly better. These products are not cheap, but well worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lovely design, Horrible product I've been dying to try this since it has such a high rating and TATCHA product just all look so pretty and I want them so bad. I been using this for a week, and besides the lovely packaging, I really don't have much of good things to say about it. I have combination skin and usually not sensitive to skincare products. But I have so much breakout on my chin that is not even funny, I don't even get breakouts this bad when I was a teenager and now I'm in my 30s I get this within a week of using this. I'm mortified!!! And I have rash on my face but I'm not sure if it's caused by the classic enzyme powder or the cleanser oil or this. I chat with their customer service SIMON who is VERY NICE and helpful and we are trying to use one at the time to figured out what is the real cause. But this cream is just really not for me, especially with a price tag like that, I'll have to see a dermatologist and see what I can do to get this pimple party on my chin away ASAP. Such a shame I really wanted to like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Winter Skin Starting since last year I began to develop dry patches on my skin during the cold winter months. This year it began developing again a few weeks ago. My daily night routine is to take off my makeup with a non-lather cream based makeup remover and a warm washcloth followed by kora noni face oil and a moisturizer. I had began to get desperate and added an extra strength dry skin body lotion on my face as a protective barrier but I kept waking up with dry patches in the morning. Last night my Silk Cream order from Tatcha came in and I layered that over my oil after cleansing and went to bed. This morning I work up with absolutely no dry patches and my skin upon touching felt silky. My makeup went on smoothly and have not had those cracks would appear on my foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful texture, superior hydration As a dermatology PA, I try several products almost monthly. This is my absolute favorite moisturizer of all time. The texture is exquisite and it hydrates effectively without feeling occlusive or heavy. Most importantly, the ingredient list is undeniably impressive. Since it is non-comedogenic most skin types will benefit from this. Will always love and recommend Tatcha to friends, family, and patients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hydrating without being too heavy Pretty impressive! I normally have problems with moisturizers- i.e. skin reacts to the chemicals within, and i get redness/tingly feeling, or break out slightly. but this was pretty fab. it has a unique gel cream texture, very smooth and silky when first applied to the face- making it easy to spread out. I use this layered with the hydrating serum at night, and i wake up feeling dewy/moisturised/protected. it's definitely helped my skin texture and moisture level improve- overall, i'm a total TATCHA convert!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I tried to go back to a lesser brand for a short time, and all I did was miss my silk! This moisturizer feels so silky and pillowy is the only way I can think to describe it. No other cream I have ever used has a better texture when it comes to feeling really hydrating yet not heavy or sticky. Moments after putting it on, you can feel your skin come to life and it looks plump and radiant. Is it me, or does it also diffuse light to make texture disappear instantly? I absolutely can't be without it. The BEST.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first touch I did not want to like this moisturizer because of its hefty price tag. I tried the deluxe sample that comes in the Discovery Kit and I have already decided it will be the splurge of the year - along with the Brightening Serum. My oh my. I'm in my mid 20's, have normal to dry skin but live in a very hot, humid city. Because of that, it will sometimes get shiny throughout the day. The texture of this moisturizer is very luxurious and unlike anything I've ever tried (and I've tried A LOT of skincare products). My skin "drinks" this immediately and my skin is left with the most supple, smooth feeling. Makeup applies effortlessly above this, but it's moisturizing enough to use it at night. In the last 10 days, I've noticed my skin is more firm and radiant. If you can afford this, get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly Moisturizer! This moisturizer is perfect for my oily/acne prone skin! Does not clog pores or cause me to break out and leaves my skin feeling so so smooth. My skin has literally never been this soft! It is so light weight but it is very hydrating without being greasy/oily/heavy. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling or residue behind. This is my new holy grail moisturizer, the only one that truly works for my skin type and the only one I will continue to use! Love it! Would recommend to anyone :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought the travel size to try. I suggest doing this, if you're interesting in the products. Very smooth, a little goes a long way. After about a week or so, I noticed that my face had more of a glow, looked healthy. It's more than I would normally spend on lotion, but because it made me feel so much better about my skin, I'm getting the full size for my Birthday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! I have struggled with atopic dermatitis my whole life, along with redness, allergies to added fragrances and chemicals. Finding the right products for my face has been a challenge to say the least. The Silk Cream has honestly been such a treat to my skin. I admit, I was hesitant to try it because it does have silk and I was afraid of an allergic reaction. No allergic reaction whatsoever! Just super soft skin that feels, well, like silk. Fine lines and dark circles under my eyes from years of rubbing the itch have disappeared! My teenage daughter has commented on how flawless my skin looks and how I glow. That’s the best compliment to me, having struggled with the physical and emotional pain of severe eczema. Tatcha is life changing for me and I have no doubt it can be for you too! (I do know about the cream with oatmeal, but I’m allergic to oatmeal so couldn’t try it, but it works wonders for everyone who has no allergy to it!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Moisturizer Ever Wow this cream! Let’s start with some helpful info: I’m a 55-year-old woman who lives in Arizona. I’m post-menopausal so my skin is changing on the regular! I also fly often for work. My skin was having some major challenges with sensitivity and flakiness. The sensitivity came in the form of under-skin cysts. I was looking for a product line that was more natural (no sensitive seven or dirty dozen or whatever you call those ingredients!), was cruelty-free and wasn’t sold in China (since they will test on animals even if you don’t - it’s their law). Tatcha fit the bill, but would it work? I called to decide which products to try and the lovely Alma helped me. Two days later I had my products. After the first couple of days, my skin was noticeably different. These products somehow provided moisture where it was needed and dried out what need to be dried out (cysts) - but without drying my skin. For the first time in years I had no flakiness. I used the ritual plus the deep hydrating firming serum. I actually look forward to washing my face - a chore I used to dislike. I used to rarely wash my face in the morning (except when I was putting on makeup). That has changed! Now let’s get to the comments about the stickiness of this (and other) products. Yes, after the ritual, there is a tackiness to the skin. But it’s more of a dewiness than anything else. If you give it a bit of time, it absorbs into the skin. And it provides a beautiful base for make-up. Yes, this is an expensive cream. And it lasts forever! They are serious when they say a pearl-sized amount is plenty. That amount will cover your face and your neck. Finally the customer service is the best in the business. Not happy with your product? No problem - return it. If you’re on the fence, try the travel kit. You’ll know within a few washes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pleeeeease bring back the other formulation I love Tatcha and was enjoying the best skin of my life with the other cream, the supple silk one they replaced with this. Unfortunately, this one clogged my pores within a couple days, and broke me out all over. :( Idon't know why they would replace a cream for combination skin with one meant for dry skin? Hoping hoping hoping they can bring back the old one. 2 stars because maybe this new one is great for a different skin type. I don't have dry skin, I can't judge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT I'm fifteen years old and have dry, acne prone skin. I break out from weather changes, stress, bad eating, and the wrong skincare. I've tried everything, from expensive skincare to proactiv, clean and clear to la roche posay, to super hydrating face oils and harsh face masks. I picked up the Tatcha cleansing oil one day, and fell in love. So I got the face polish as well. Love! So I decided to take the plunge and get more Tatcha products. This is the most luxurious, hydrating, yet light face cream I have ever used. It sinks in beautifully and keeps my skin clear, fresh, happy, and baby butt soft. The price is ridiculous, yes, but this skincare is so transformative and beautiful, not to mention the packaging, you do get good value for money. The results speak for themselves. I could go on and on about this. Just try it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good moisturizer but does not control oil production Although this is a good moisturizing product for those with oily skin, it did very little to control the oil production (hence the three stars). That said, if you are looking for a good moisturizer that does not cause you to break out, this is a good product. Alternatively, I've been using Tatcha's Pore Perfecting SPF moisturizer as part of my daytime regiment and it does an AMAZING job in giving me sun protection AND controling my oil production.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just absolutely lovely. I use this in the morning as I'm using a sample of the Ageless Renewal Cream at night (will be buying that as well). I use it after the brightening serum; I have oily/combo skin and I don't have to use a lot of either to get the moisturization my skin needs. It penetrates effortlessly into the skin and on the days I use foundation, my skin looks smoother than it ever has. Even without foundation, my skin looks healthy and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for summer My skin has been always in trouble since this Summer. My skin type changes a little when the season changes, but basically my skin is dry. Since the summer came, my old moisturizer didn't work for me at all. My skin became a little bit oily, but I can feel that deeply my skin is really dry. When I say this one is perfect for the summer, it's because it won't give you an oily finish, but your skin can be moisturized deeply. I do used a lot masks to help my skin. This one also does a really good job of keeping my skin in good condition. I have tried two samples during last Winter, and I think this one won't be enough for someone who has dry skin to use in winter. Overall, I love this product and feel it is a really safe choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How can you not love a something that has the lightness of a gel but the richness of a cream? I've been obsessed with gel-creams since like 2007 when I first found one in an airport duty-free shop. I love the almost "bouncy" texture and the fact that it has all the richness and hydration of a traditional cream but the lightweight, "cool" feeling of a gel. This one doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and smells pretty. Like, like, like. The amethyst-colored ribbon on the top is even prettier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Jelly? I used Jafra for 21 years because of Royal Jelly. It's the only thing I still use from this line. Knowing that TATCHA has this as an ingredient in this product is wonderful. It has a light scent and is not greasy. A small amount goes a long way. At 57 years young, I use this on my chest area for wrinkling and it has helped get rid of it. Girls, TATCHA is GREAT for making you look and feel younger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Moisturizing Cream! This is a must-have! I have sensitive skin and prone to break outs. I've tried other creams with no luck. When I looked into this, I decided to give it try. Within a week, my face started to clear up and barely broke out. As weeks gone by, it just got better and better. I just can't see myself with another product other than this. This product would last me at least 3's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply divine I was recently been introduced to Tacha products from a worker at Sephora. After trying the best sellers set from Sephora, I went on Tatcha website and splurged on this silk cream, the silk cloth, the dewy face mist, classic rice polish, Camilla oil cleanser, and many other products. I have to say that the silk cream makes my skin super soft and has this cool sensation when I apply the product. I also referred Tatcha to my friends and coworkers and they are also in love. I hope Tatcha will continue to make all these wonderful products.

In the morning, could I combine this with my spf moisturizer?

my forehead, nose, and upper lip area get oily but the rest is pretty normal. can this moisturizer work for me?

Asked by: OTSC
Thank you for your question! For skin that falls into the Normal to Oily range, we would recommend The Water Cream to balance skin. However, if you like something slightly richer at night, The Silk Cream would be an excellent option. We hope this helps!

What is the difference between the Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream and the Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream?

Asked by: TATCHA
The Silk Cream is ideal for normal to dry skin, allowing skin to retain its own moisture. We created the Ageless Enriching Face Cream for those with especially dry or more mature skin, to intensely hydrate the skin with Hyaluronic Acid and time-tested extracts that reduce loss of elasticity and dullness.
