Tatcha Products Review: The Skincare Products that Changed My Morning Routine

Ladies! Ahh, let me tell you how I leveled up my skincare routine in 2021! Before the pandemic, there was not a day that went by where I didn’t wear makeup. Day in and day out, it was just routine for me to get ready to go to work or out on the town on the weekends. Once COVID hit I literally never left the house. At home, there was no reason to waste my products.

With makeup out of the picture I just started to become more focused on my skin and how I wanted it to be flawless. Which is why I’m here today. I have found the greatest little beauty secret that works perfect with me and I want to share it with you!

The brand is called Tatcha. For today’s review, I will focus on the Tatcha Water Cream and The Deep Cleanser. I grabbed these items by fate really. I was picking up some Fenty foundation and had some Beauty Bazaar points to splurge and decided to give their travel size pack a go. I am always very iffy about trying new things on my face. I have very sensitive skin and usually break out over just about anything. This stuff changed the game and I felt a difference right away.

Background: I have oily/combination, sensitive skin so I tend to cling to oil-free products. If you’re like me, then this is for you. They also have a line for that “dewy skin” glow. You can check that out here.


Let’s start with the Water Cream.

Ugh, Can we just admire this presentation?! Boxing is A1. The little gold top doubles as an applicator!

What is it?

“It’s an oil-free, anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals and optimal hydration for pure, poreless skin.”

What’s In it?

How it works:

  • “Provides nutrient-rich, balanced hydration: Unique water-burst cream breaks upon application to deeply deliver treatment benefits, hydrating without leaving skin sticky or greasy.
  • Clarifies and refines skin with pure, powerful Japanese botanicals:
  • Japanese Wild Rose visibly tightens pores and smoothes skin texture.
  • Japanese Leopard Lily helps control excess oil and clarify skin by encouraging natural skin turnover.
  • Delivers anti-aging Japanese superfoods:
  • Hadasei-3™, an anti-aging trinity of green tea, rice & algae, restores healthy-looking, youthful radiance.
  • Imparts a subtle, shine-free glow with a touch of 23-karat gold.”

My Experience

The Water Cream has a thick creamy consistency that looks moist but is non-greasy. The moment you rub this stuff on your skin you will feel an immediate difference. I love when my face feels soft with no effort. I mean it feels like you have a layer of velvety primer over your face. I fell in love with it immediately. The best part was even after a few days I had 0 issues! No new emerging bumps, irritation, burning, dryness, nothing! The moisturizer did what it said it would do. I even see a difference with my makeup application- it goes on smoother and lasts longer even without primer!

This product is a must have.


Next; for the Deep Cleanser. I always feel like I can only find one thing from a brand that I’m absolutely in love with. So, I didn’t really have high expectations from this. But wow, I was pleasantly surprised with this cleanser.

What is it?

“A daily gel cleanser with natural fruit exfoliant that deeply but gently lifts impurities and unclogs pores, while leaving skin soft and hydrated.”

How does it work?

The Deep Cleanse oil-free gel lathers into a creamy foam to lift away dirt, oil and impurities without over-drying. It cleanses with amino acids derived from silk gentle enough for even the most delicate skin, leaving skin soft, refreshed and comfortably hydrated.

The formula harnesses the power of the Japanese Luffa fruit, a natural beauty multi-tasker beloved by Japanese women for centuries. Ground fibers from the fruit exfoliate, helping to turn over dead skin cells, deeply purifying & decongesting pores, while the fruit extract beautifies and conditions skin.

Japanese Wild Rose works to visibly tighten pores and smooth skin texture, while Japanese Leopard Lily helps minimize excess oil.

My Experience

I LOVE a good exfoliator, but I was always scared about using one every day. I’ll be honest I tried this product first with my usual oil-free foaming cleanser then followed up with this cleanser. I preferred to use this on makeup-less days to get the full effect and also because I don’t like to waste my products on removing layers of makeup. My skin felt so smooth, almost too smooth! It smells like heaven and the minute you’re done wiping it off you will feel the softness without the DRYNESS! I have not had anything that has been able to do both.


While the products are great I think it’s also important to note that Tatcha gives back! With every purchase, we are helping support girls’ education programs in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and Vietnam. There is nothing more important than giving back and having a purpose. This is something I can stand behind. I love to see companies making an impact. TO learn more about this program visit here.

While I am not paid to do these reviews, I really wish they would sponsor me so I could try their whole line. The products are very pricy, so if you want to give them a go, I suggest buying the travel size first! After I ran out of these products, I made the investment into the full-size amounts! Beauty and self-care are so important these days, trust me when I say I know it’s hard to dig through what’s worth the hype and what’s not. If your skin is similar to mine – I HIGHLY recommend you give this product line a try. You will not regret it!
