  • Ahhh!

    I am so excited about this product! I have temperamental, combo skin. Years ago a dermatologist said to me, "by the time you put your towel down from drying your face, and reach for your moisturizer, it's too late...your skin is so dry!" For years I have tried to leave my face damp to rush to my moisturizers or serums. It didn't work so well. Last year I became completely hooked on all things Tatcha. I get so many compliments on my skin - even without make up and from strangers! They always say, "your skin is gorgeous!", "your skin is poreless!" and "what do you use??". The Essence was my missing link and I added it quickly to my Tatcha ritual. Now, I can relax and take my time after drying my skin. A few drops of Essence just feels fantastic on my face and neck, and keeps my skin moisturized and plump without being just water. My serums and moisturizers go on so smoothly. Thank you, Tatcha, for slowing life down and making it more beautiful!

  • 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.
