  • Totally transforms the ritual!

    I've been using the ritual products for sensitive skin (oil,enzyme,serum,cream) for a month. Skin has improved but I had issues with some products like cream and serum not really able to sunk in into my skin, but with essence everything goes on so smoothly!

  • Best in Class!

    I'm on week two now of wearing my new Tatcha essence morning and night and I am very impressed with its performance. And, believe me, as an essence user for over 15 years, I know a good one when I use it. Tatcha's essence is one of the very best of the best that I've tried :-) I'm glad more information is getting out about how to use this wonderful product because I think a lot of people don't understand how to incorporate it into their routine. It couldn't be easier, though. Simply apply about 1/4 teaspoon to freshly cleansed skin and continue with your regular skin care products (Tatcha, of course ;-) ) Yes, it is an extra step, but it only takes seconds to apply and the substantial and impressive results that continuing use yields is impressive to be sure. Tatcha's dispenser is also a brilliant innovation which lets you gently shake out enough product to cover your face, neck, and décollage without any waste. Don't confuse an essence with an American style toner. They're totally different products. A top quality essence is not just a few beneficial ingredients diffused in a bottle of water, rather it is a highly concentrated formula comprised of all those skin nurturing ingredients that render our skin, smooth, even-toned, and refined. Tatcha's essence has really nailed it and has rapidly displaced all my other essences and is now my one and only :-) If you've never tried an essence, Tatcha's is a great introduction to this time-honored Asian skin care step. It's a fantastic product!

  • My Missing Step

    As soon as I could, I purchased this new product. I've gotten into the habit of immediately purchasing new TATCHA products because so far, I've loved everything! At first, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The Essence seemed a little foreign to me. However, once I received it and tired it, I knew that this was the step in my skincare routine that I had been missing. Basically, it's a toner. But really it's so much more than a toner! It doesn't strip the skin like many traditional toners. With each application, (which is super easy btw) my skin feels softer, plumper, and appears brighter. I, of course, use the rest of my TATCHA regimen (Brightening Serum, Moisture Rich Silk Cream, etc.) and I couldn't be happier. I'm so excited about this product and look forward to more TATCHA creations in the future!

  • Works Wonders!

    The Essence is wonderful. I'm 28, and have been suffering from sebaceous psoriasis for years- and have recently developed dry red flaky patches on my face. I've been using The Essence every night before bed, and I feel as though it has been helping my dry spots become much less flaky and irritated. Honestly incredible, as I haven't been able to help my psoriasis with anything but topical steroids before. I am so happy to have found The Essence! I'll be telling my friends, this product works wonders for people with drying skin conditions...Thank you for making such a great product!
