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.

The best.I had to leave a review because I think this line is the best I have tried. I'm in my early 30's with oily, clogged large pores, acne prone skin with hyper pigmentation scars and I'm Asian. My skin has been terrible for as long as I can remember. The first difference I noticed after the first night of using this regimen is that I didn't wake up with that gross oil slick on my face that I usually have despite any skin care line I use. I have tried almost every brand out there; high end, low end, organic, prescriptions, etc. My skin feels great after washing with the oil and the rice enzyme. It's comfortable and not dry or tight. The serum glides nicely and the moisturizer is just right for my skin. Overall my skin is a little less oilier with improved texture. I need to blot maybe once/day. I've only used this for about a week so I look forward to see how my skin looks with longterm use. I always knew an Asian line would benefit my skin and this is very promising. The packaging is also really great and the moisturizer comes with a little spatula and a ribbon tie to keep it in place! I've always thought that's the way it should be done with cream pots. I'm glad they thought of that kind of detail. I bit the bullet when I saw the 20% discount and I'm very happy with my investment.Read More
It Really Works!!!I have had acne for most of my life. About 10 years ago, I began using Obagi and it worked. The problem was peeling and drying of my skin. I discovered Tatcha on QVC and watched wondering if it might work for me. I ordered the Oily Discovery Kit from Tatcha and used it expecting my skin to break out again. Well, four weeks later, my glowing skin is better than ever. There are no breakouts, when one seems to try, it's gone the next day! I am also noticing the redness is reducing each week! My enlarged pores seem to be shrinking…but I expect that to take time. I am now using the full sized regime daily and absolutely love it! This product works for all races and skin types. I am a 63 year old African American woman. Thank you Vicki and your entire staff for this marvelous product! My skin loves you!!!Read More
Hooked for lifeSo simple yet effective for oily skin. My face gets crazy oily and this set has really helped get the shine under control so I just need blotting paper maybe once a day. The cleansing oil leaves me cleaner than I knew I could get while the exfoliant powder keeps my face glowing and soft. The brightener shrinks my pores and evens my skin removing some of the redness I used to get.Read More
Finally, the moisturizer goes on so light which is great for my oily skin that I almost never get a pimple ever but still feel hydrated. A great set!
