The precious Camellia was first discovered, thousands of years ago, by Japan's Oshima Island farm girls who applied the flower's extract to their skin and hair. The Ama (Japanese female free divers) evolved this ancient beauty secret, coating their bodies with Camellia Oil to protect their skin during frigid ocean dives. Centuries later, geisha began applying nutrient-rich Camellia Oil after bathing, a luxurious addition to their daily beauty ritual.

  • Most Excellent Lightweight Oil

    I would never have purchased this on my own, but in Tatcha's gift box last Christmas I received a travel size. Even as an elderly person, I still have oily skin; a mixed blessing to be sure. I enjoy less wrinkles, but it makes using a moisturizer a real challenge. Most of the moisturizes I use (including Tatcha's) sit on top of my skin and remain tacky, no matter how little I use. The Essence was introduced and I started using it. Then I read about the Camellia Beauty Oil and decided to get it out of the gift box and use it. I put it over the top of my Essence to seal it in. It turns out that this is what I've been looking for to moisturize. It sinks in and leaves no greasy feel or look. My skin looks incredibly plumped all day. I use the oil in this manner both morning and evening and I am loving the results. I do use the Memory serum on occasion at night. Tatcha makes caring for your skin very easy and rewarding. My dermatologist complimented me on my "lovely skin". I figure she should know. Thank you, Vicky. I love Tatcha!

  • The Beauty Oil!

    The natural aroma is pure bliss. The oils are good for just about anything you can think of... nourishing, luminous & calming for the skin & hair. This is not a heavy oil that sits on top. I never wear makeup without adding or pressing this on top of it. The effect is moist bouncy youthful looking skin (not greasy). There's also a lot of product in the bottle and like all Tatcha products a modest amount goes a long way. It's nighttime right now so I'll be pressing this oil into my lips along with a dab under my nose for aroma therapy. The bottle is drop dead gorgeous.

  • Amazing products

    I cannot say enough great things about Tatcha products and the Camellia Beauty Oil is no exception. I was hesitant about using the oil since I tend to have oily skin and large pores but since I was so happy about the other products I tried, I figured it was worth it so I purchased the travel size. I apply it every night after the cleansing oil and rice powder and my skin is actually more balanced throughout the day and my pores have improved. I've tried other oils in the past including argan oil and it just never worked for me, but this is completely different. I never plan to be without this!

  • What I have been looking for!

    It's amazingly light and feels very smooth and yet not oily after using it. It gets absorbed by your skin and gives you a glowing feeling.
