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.

The one difference between the two versions of this Ritual is the Gentle version contains a Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder whereas the Ritual for Normal + Combination Skin contains a Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. TATCHA recommends the Gentle Powder for those with sensitive skin. For clients who do not have sensitive skin, the Gentle powder can also be kept on the skin for a longer period of time to replicate the strength of the Classic Powder.
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
