In the West, geisha are known for their intricate stage makeup. In the East however, she is known for the "mochi hada" or "baby skin" beneath her performance makeup. Her rituals are deceptively and brilliantly simple though.
The foundation of her classic beauty ritual is brilliantly effective and deceptively simple — a trio of powerful anti-oxidants, each fulfilling a key role in her regimen:
Green Tea — the healing protector
Rice Bran — the nourishing exfoliant
Okinawa Red Algae — the replenishing moisturizer
These anti-oxidant rich ingredients are at the heart of a diet credited with the extraordinary longevity of the Japanese people.

Love the products but unfortunately too priceyI began using the trial set of Tatcha for combination skin and was instantly hooked on this wonderful line of skin care. My face felt clean and did not collect oils or get shiny throughout the day or overnight. I have been researching ingredients and looking for years for skin care that does not have a lot of "junk" in it and has mostly natural ingredients, which I believe this line to have. Unfortunately, I could not justify the high prices of these products, it doesn't take long to go through a full size moisturizer at $150 per approx. 1.5 oz, so I found another natural line of skin care that I'll admit does not leave my skin feeling as good, but it is more economical. I miss this line and come back often to see if there are any online promotions/specials, which disappointingly, there are rarely any. I believe in the "you get what you pay for", but paying about $500 every couple of months is just too much and hard to justify.Read More
I love this kitI bought this for myself after trying the discovery kit from QVC a month or so ago. I especially love the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. I use it in the shower in the morning, then follow that with the Deep Brightening Serum and the Silk cream. I mostly use the Cleansing Oil when I wear makeup, which is not every day. I still take my mascara off before I use it, because, I feel like I'm rubbing the mascara into my skin while I cleansing it. I love how all of these products make my skin feel so incredibly soft and supple. The Cleansing Oil removes all of my makeup and really does dissolve into this wonderful milky stuff right before rinsing off completely. No oily feeling at all, just clean and soft. I have a feeling that this kit will last me a long time, but, I will definitely reorder. So happy I found this product.Read More
Not for year roundI ordered the full set for combo skin......my skin felt dry. It's probably good in the summer, not year round. I should've gotten the set for dry or gentle skin.Read More
I am loving tatchaI love this kit. It has saved my skin. The cleansing oil is perfect to use to take off the day. I love the powder. It makes my skin feel super soft after I use it (like the softest it has ever been). I like the serum and moisturizer as they are not thick but work well. My skin is combination and this kit neither makes me oily or dry just perfect.Read More
Best way to try and fall in love with everything!I started with a small sample of the classic rice enzyme powder being handed out in a local store. From there I came to the website to see what else was available and found this starter kit. I thought that if the rice powder made such an overnight difference in my skin, I had to try other products in the line and I am so glad I did! Not only has the rice powder cleaned my skin, the serum has brightened my skin, and the moisture cream has given me back the hydration I thought I had lost forever. Other product lines left my skin raw, or greasy, or with breakouts, but this has healed my skin and it looks beautiful. Years of sun damage are almost imperceptible and I have only been using this for about one month so far. I tried switching out the serum and using something else (because it is so expensive!) but my skin just didn't have that glow and it didn't feel as comfortable as when using the entire kit together. I have used cheaper skin care, and more expensive, too, but this is what I have been searching for all my life. My skin is super sensitive, I have rosacea, sun damage, discoloration - you name it, it's etched on my face. However, my "elevens" between my brows are softened, sun spots are gone, rosacea finally calmed and even broken capillaries from my 20s are less visible. Everyone should try these products. The starter kit is a great way to discover what works best for you. I think it's wonderful that we are given a chance to try these products before spending a lot on full size items. The customer service, the speed of shipping, the care of the packaging - everything has been a fantastic experience here and I look forward to years of trying more products from this company. You have nothing to lose by trying this skin care package. It's really amazing.Read More
