[6.22.2018] EMPTY - my favorite exfoliating mask so far 🙌🏽 My approach to skincare is very much gentle, consistent, and preventative care versus harsh immediate results so @tatcha
’s violet-c radiance mask is right up my alley. Before this, I used drunk elephant’s sakari baby facial, which left me with a bit of redness and a burning sensation that didn’t go away with consistent use. After leaving my skin alone for a few weeks, I eased into weekly exfoliation with this mask and my skin really loved it!
I love how creamy this mask is - it spreads across my face nicely and doesn’t harden. It’s comfortable to wear for 15 minutes and easy to wash off with a damp cloth. I personally didn’t experience any tingling, and afterwards my skin definitely felt bright, soft, and balanced. And with consistent use, I feel like my skin tone was more even. This product if full of rich antioxidants and gentle chemical exfoliators, including Japanese beautyberry, 2 types of vitamin C derivatives, a 10% AHA complex, and Tatcha’s signature Hadasei-3 (green tea, rice, and algae).
While I agree that Tatcha’s marketing has sometimes played on the border of #culturalappropriation
, I really do love Tatcha philosophy, products, and overall brand. I first discovered Tatcha back in 2012 through @mochimag
and fell further in love when I heard founder Victoria Tsai (no relation!!) speak so genuinely about her story at an event in 2015. I really admire Vicky’s respectful approach to Japanese craftsmanship and her ability to tie it seamlessly with scientific research to deliver high quality products. Plus, every skincare purchase supports girls’ education through Tatcha’s partnership with Room to Read.
