  • A must have in your skin routine!

    I recently purchased the Tatcha skin plumping softener Essence and this product is a game changer! Its amazing how one little 7 second step can enhance and change your skin for the better so quickly. I apply this after my camellia cleansing oil and classic rice enzyme powder. This is full of skin loving anti aging and hydrating ingredients that truly do plump and soften the skin. Not only that, it also enhances whatever treatments are applied on top of it to better penetrate deeper into the layers of skin. Applying both day and night you will notice the difference. It's worth every penny!

  • Wonderful surprise!

    I use - and love - a LOT of Tatcha products; my whole routine is Tatcha, in fact. Nevertheless, the immediate benefits of this Essence still came as a surprise. Wow! I use so much less of every serum, my skin is soft and plump any time of the day or night, and it seems to have provided that final piece of moisture balance my skin was looking for. Most of the time I pour about 1/4 teaspoon in my palm and use two fingers to dip and press it into my face, and that makes a little go a long way. 10/10 will buy again - this is my favorite Tatcha product to date!

  • Amazing product!

    I might be biased because every product I've used from Tatcha is of the highest quality. My skin drinks this essence right up. It's as if my skin has been waiting for this product. I've noticed that my skin is more hydrated and has a glow to it... I'm very happy with the results.

  • Adds Vitality & Vibrancy to Skin!

    Had been a loyal user of the SK-II essence for many years, then learned it had parabens and tried Tatcha Essence as a paraben-free replacement. I'm so glad I did! The Tatcha Essence delivers a vitality to my skin that I have not seen in many years. My skin is plump, healthy, clear and the texture is even. I can cover my entire face and neck with about six drops and I even put it on my eye area before my eye cream. It's not heavy at all, it just feels good and my skin loves it. I've also noticed a sharp decrease in redness on my checks (I'm rosacea-prone) and feel like my lotion and eye cream work so much better with the Essence underneath. Overall, this is an amazing treatment for happy, healthy, younger looking and feeling skin. - PS, I'm in my mid-40's with combination skin.

  • Not worth the expense

    I used this essence for months, day and night, and did not notice any benefit at all. I have combo skin with some dryness in the cheeks and some oiliness in the T-zone. I thought this was supposed to help with moisture but it did nothing. Didn't even feel soothing like the essence I use now. There are much better essences from Korean brands that are so much more affordable to boot.
