This Essence Saved My Sensitive Winter Skin

“The clear, lightweight fluid honors the traditional Japanese practice of using an essence”

The natural fermentation process produces lactic acid to smooth and resurface, so the essence softens skin as it hydrates and sets the stage for serums and moisturizers to come.

  • I have found what I was looking for.

    I made a Tatcha purchase that included their new Essence. It brought along a gift bag full of goodies. Among the goodies was a bottle of Camelia Beauty Oil which I had never tried, because of my oily skin. When I was using my Essence and finding out how great it was, I experimentally followed up the Essence and Radiant Skin Brightening Lotion with the beauty oil. It is exactly what I have been looking for to make the most of my skincare. The beauty oil seals in the Essence and when I get up in the morning my skin is plumped like I just applied the Essence before I checked the mirror. For me this is the perfect trio to follow cleansing and exfoliating. I would never have tried the beauty oil on my own, because even though I'm an older person my skin is still oily. I'm soooo glad Vicky listened to her R&D team and put the Essence in the line. It is awesome.

  • Amazing

    I have used the Essence for three weeks now, and I really like it. I live in the NE of America, in the winter time, my face becomes dehydrated really quick. However, since I started using the Essence, I felt a big improvement, my skin is no longer dry, and it is much softer than before. Every time I pat the water like liquid on my face, my skin absorbs it quickly, it is like my face were thirst for it, when it drys, my skin feels softer and smooth. This product is really amazing.

  • Love it

    I love this product. As soon as I put it onto my face after cleansing I can automatically see the difference in my skin. I am 45 with temperamental skin and I really have to give this product kudos it deserves for making my skin feel and look lovely. Thanks Tatcha.

  • A work of magic

    I have never used an essence before and had no idea what to expect in the long term. Well, after weeks of using it let me tell you, it is POWER in a bottle; power to transform your skin and give you a fresh, no makeup needed face. I have learned that if I use the essence followed by the camellia beauty oil, I have given my face a transformation that lasts all day. I also use essence followed by the beauty oil at night for a face I can wake up to and feel good about. I will be 69 this year, and I come from a family of great genes. We are very slow to wrinkle, but our faces get saggy. This essence firms up and fills up my face with moisture and I'm sure it is a vital part of my skincare routine going forward. It's pretty miraculous if you think about it. Looks like water, but is so transformative it works like an artist on your face.

  • Absolute joy!

    I love The Essence so much for the rejuvenating and hydrating feeling I get everytime I use it. In the summer, I plan to keep an extra bottle in the fridge for a great pick me up on those hot dry Arizona days. My new go to product and I recommended it to my boyfriend as an alternative to aftershave. Now he loves it too!
