Can I use the Rice Enzyme Powder as a cleanser?
Yes, if you are not wearing makeup or if you’ve already removed makeup, this item can act as a 2-in-1 cleanser, both cleansing and gently exfoliating the skin at the same time.
Why is the Rice Enzyme Powder in powder form?
The formula is actually water-activated so it’s important to keep it in a dry form before use. Upon pouring the powder into wet hands and adding water, it turns into a creamy lather that can be massaged into the face with highly efficacious cleansing, exfoliating and conditioning results.
Is it okay to exfoliate everyday?
Unlike conventional Western exfoliants, which are often too harsh and stripping for everyday use, Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Powders are specifically formulated to be used everyday and won’t strip the skin. This is one of the key differences in the approach of traditional Japanese skincare and Western skincare regimens.
Which Rice Enzyme Powder should I use? Can I mix and match?
Generally, the Gentle version is best for people with drier skin, Classic for normal/combination skin, Deep for more oily skin and Soothing for sensitive skin. However, your skin needs can be different each day and from morning to night and using different versions can be beneficial at different times for the same person.
Can I use the Rice Enzyme Powder with Clarisonic?
You should not need to use our Rice Enzyme Powders with the Clarisonic, as the two products serve the same purpose as exfoliants. For additional exfoliating benefits, we recommend incorporating the Polished Facial Brush by Kashoen 1883 into your ritual, or pairing our Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil with your Clarisonic.
Does each powder contain the same key ingredients?
All three powders are formulated with our proprietary HADASEI-3™ Complex. In addition, the Gentle powder contains licorice extract to help soothe sensitive skin, the Classic powder, formulated for combination skin, contains conditioning pearl extract, and the deep powder contains dokudami, a Japanese botanical long prized for its ability to calm acne and balance the complexion.
Can I use the Rice Enzyme Powder around my eyes?
We do not recommend using the Enzyme Powders around your eyes.
MiraclesI have been using this duo for over a year and my daughter who doesn't live in the area and so sees me infrequently, has noticed. She told me that I looked the same from visit to visit, tho' her friends mothers were becoming wrinkled. Of course I shared my secret with her and loaded her with samples. I showed her how to use the products (dry hands/wet hands) and watched her try it out. After she used the rice powder she patted her face dry and looked at me with her mouth open and eyes big...apparently she had no words. I like using the radiant deep brightening serum, too. I have melasma and it fades it nicely. I would feel guilty about spending this much for skin care, but you only get one face and the products do tend to last quite a while. I try to send my daughter who budgets tightly, a set of the oil and powder when she runs low. She's frugal and only uses the powder every other day, but it IS gentle enough to use twice daily and still be a friend to my 67 year old face. I highly recommend this line and always look forward to my purchases as they are wrapped as valuables, which they are!Read More
LuxuriousWashing one's face should be a ritual and that it is with these products! Look forward to mornings and evenings for this experience. Just love the oil and rice powder. Thank you. Also, the service at Tatcha is superior!Read More
Enjoyable routineI'm 31 with 2 boys and expecting my 3rd in 2 months so I decided it was time I took taking care of my skin more seriously. I'm not ready to start looking like I am aging but definitely have a lot of stress (although good stress) in my life. I rarely wear makeup but I still enjoy using the cleansing oil in the evening to remove any dirt and sweat I accumulated during the day. I use the powder morning and evening which makes my skin incredibly soft. I originally purchased the gentle cleanser because I consider my skin dry and I wanted to be able to use the product twice daily. After two weeks of use I noticed I was getting red bumps on my face. I thought the powder might be too harsh so I called customer service and they graciously sent me a sample of the Indigo powder to try. This seems to agree with my skin better and the bumps are gone leaving me with soft skin. I have been using these products about one month now and am optimistic that my skin will continue to improve as I continue to use these products. I have enjoyed these products (as well as Tatcha's lovely customer service) so much that I am in the process of switching all my skincare products to Tatcha. I'm working on finding my perfect moisturizer now...Read More
Such a great value!I love having this little piece of luxury every morning and every night. After only a couple days of use my skin feels softer and more supple. The container size is also quite generous so I can see this lasting awhile!Read More
Awesome TwosomeEvery morning and every night, I use these two beauties to wash my face--I can't imagine a day without them! As someone with oily skin, I'm using the most smudge-proof and water-proof makeup to ensure it stays on all day. The downside to this makeup is that taking it off usually involves tugging/pulling at my skin, which worries me because I don't want to cause premature wrinkles. But with the camellia oil, the makeup comes right off. A gentle massage with my fingertips is all it takes, and it disappears. Unlike a lot of makeup removers, it leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh. I was worried an oil might break me out, but I've noticed I break out less when my skin is properly cleansed. The rice powder is my favorite cleanser to use right after. I love the lather it turns into, and how I can use it right after the camellia oil. My face looks so much better after using these two! Thank you TATCHA for making this duo for the best skin I've ever had. I'll be stocking up!Read More
