Being a skincare enthusiast, I love discovering new skincare products that are not only truly effective but also play well with my sensitive skin. The latest skincare line that has landed on my beauty radar is TATCHA, a luxury skincare brand inspired by ancient geisha beauty rituals. Today I am showcasing two new products that have recently been added to TATCHA’s Water Collection : Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum and Luminous Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask.
The TATCHA Water Collection harnesses the deeply hydrating power of Okinawan red algae, marrying it with with their signature anti-aging HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex for an exquisitely pure blend that helps return skin to its natural luminosity, from the inside out.
In the translucent waters of an Okinawa lagoon grows a delicate red algae, rich in minerals and powerfully hydrating. Called “treasure from the god of the sea” by the island’s inhabitants, the algae is revered for its ability to restore skin’s luminosity from the inside out. The TATCHA Water Collection features Okinawa Red Algae married with Hyaluronic Acid, known to hold a thousand times its weight in water, for deeply hydrated, nourished skin and a naturally luminous glow.
TATCHA Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum ($95/1.0 oz) blends the lasting moisture replenishing properties of Okinawa red algae with hyaluronic acid to soothe and firm skin in need of hydration. It also contains royal jelly, an ingredient containing vitamin B, biotin, and folic acid. True to its name, the formula really is a delightfully hydrating treat for dry, sensitive skin like mine. The serum is so lightweight yet moisturizing and absorbs instantly without a greasy/oily feel which makes it a good choice for almost all skin types. Another thing I really love about this serum is that it contains 23-karat gold dust that lends skin a dewy, lit-from-within look, without adding any shimmer to the face. And a little goes a long way with this one – just one pump is good enough for your face. The light, citrusy fresh scent is also lovely.
Now that it’s summertime, I really don’t need any additional moisturizer after this serum even with my dry skin…and I love that! Makeup application is effortless after using this serum. It leaves my skin so smooth and supple with a healthy glow!
TATCHA Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask ($12 for 1 set, $95 for a 10-pack)
Rich in red algae extract from the waters around Japan’s Okinawa Island, this intensive mask nourishes skin and increases microcirculation with precious asian botanicals including green tea, silk extract, japanese honeysuckle and peony extract to help promote the appearance of hydrated, revitalized-looking eyes. The eye mask patches are made with unique coconut-derived biocellulose, developed originally to speed healing for burn victims, that forms an occlusive layer on the skin and enables the powerful active ingredients to absorb and work their magic!
The eye mask patches were easy to apply and adhered well to the skin, providing a soothing and cooling sensation to my tired eyes. I had the eye mask on for about 20-25 minutes and loved how it left my skin feeling so refreshed and hydrated. It really made a difference, smoothing out all those fine lines and making my eyes look well-rested and brighter…..it’s like the perfect pick-me-up for tired eyes!
