The Water Cream is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desert Island Product Having been on a twenty year search for a moisturizer that will work for my combination, sensitive, and picky skin I can finally say "I found it!". The Water Cream is light but rich; creamy but gel-like; soothing but powerful; in other words, it's everything I hoped it would be. All of Tatcha's products are wonderful but I found the Silk Cream just a little heavy for my skin and the humid climate in which I live. In a month of use, I can see the visible tightening of pores and a reduction in my fine lines, not to mention that my skin tone has evened out and calmed down. My search is over. Tatcha's Water Cream has answered all my moisturizing needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail product I bought a travel size of this to try and was very surprised. I have combo/oily t zone ,rosacea, and still have acne breakouts at 48! So, I was looking for a moisturizer that wouldn't make me breakout. I tried it cosmetics, since they are dermatological tested for sensitive skin but their cream made me breakout. This did not, it is very light ,gel like texture that melted into my skin on contact. It feels cool, and sunk into my skin,instead of laying on the surface like a lot of other moisturizers do. Which was wonderful it feels really good ,and isn't greasy or oily. A very elegant product,for lack of a better description! It gives me just enough hydration. ****

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I have tried the other face creams Tatcha has to offer and they are all beautifully unique in their own ways but out of all of them, the Ageless Enrichment Renewal Cream and The Water Cream are my absolute favorites. The Ageless is perfect for night and the Water Cream I find is absolutely beautiful as a day cream. Yet again, I’m totally taken away by this cream. It feels weightless which that is what I need because my combination skin can feel heavy with most face creams. And as with all of TATCHA’S products, you barely need any so it lasts so much longer and so nourishing for skin. Forever my go to because I’m never going back to normal brands. Thank you again TATCHA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing As someone who has very sensitive/acne-prone oily skin, this product works wonders! It is very hard to find a moisturizer that does not clog my pores or cause me to become more oily throughout the day, which in turn leads to breakouts. This moisturizer has helped reduce my oil production and keep my skin very clear and smooth. The difference I have noticed with my skin's texture is amazing. I can't rave enough about this product. Granted, it costs more than most of us would like to spend, but if you feel your skin is an investment worth making like me, then it is definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my post-menopausal acne prone skin I have been searching for the perfect anti-aging moisturizer for my ever changing post menopausal skin which is actually somewhat dry but prone to acne breakouts which I have never had before. My skin drinks in the Water Cream, which seems to plump the skin. My pores are growing increasingly less visible with continued use. I find that it works well as a serum because of the fact that it completely absorbs into my skin. I also use the Tatcha cleansing oil and rice enzyme powder as my cleansing ritual. LOVE LOVE LOVE Tatcha!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another mediocre product in expensive packaging. I am one with sensitive skin, but this product did not cause my skin to break out. It is fine as a light moisturizer, but beyond that it does *nothing* that the manufacturer claims that it does. I have enlarged pores on my cheeks. Using the Tatcha Water Cream religiously certainly did not help alleviate any of that. Just to be sure before being conclusive about the ineffectiveness of this cream, I went through 2 bottles.The hefty price-tag is for a mediocre product in fashionable packaging. You are pretty much paying a fortune for the fancy bottle, and not for the product. What helped my enlarged pores is a periodic, light microdermabrasion, not this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Oily-skin savior! Tatcha has never disappointed me with any of their products and The Water Cream is no different! It's so difficult to describe the feeling of applying this moisturizer. When you pick it up on the elegant spoon, it feels like a super emollient cream. But as you apply it, it turns to air, water, something that feels so light and refreshing. You simply have to try it to understand. My oily skin was balanced all day long and when I got home from work at night it still felt soft and plump. The Water Cream is another Tatcha miracle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE This is an incredible moisturizer! I have been using Tatcha products for about 4 months now. I started with a kit of travel size. I am in love. I am 53 years old and my skin is amazing. I get so many compliments on my skin since using the cleansing oil, the rice powder cleanser, the essence, and the water cream. I just ordered the oil. I have both lipsticks. I can honestly say I will never put another product on my skin ... Oh and I must not forget the incredible beautiful Violet c mask, also just started the indigo recovery cream. Amazing!

What kind if alchocol does this product comtain? And how much alcohol

Asked by: Hannah1234
Hi Hannah! We have alcohol in very low concentrations in our formulas so you never need to worry with Tatcha. The Deep Cleanse contains about 1% Ethyl alcohol, less than the concentration you would find in very ripe fruit. Ethyl alcohol is derived from grain and we use it as a dispersion and preservative system in the formula as an alternative to other harmful ingredients like parabens. Always, TATCHA
