So, what makes Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen a skincare standout? It is formulated with Japanese Wild Rose extract that has anti-inflammatory properties and has a naturally astringent effect on the skin to tighten pores with regular use. The formula also boasts of the antioxidant-rich green tea, Okinawa red algae, silk and licorice root extract that helps brighten your skin. Also, it’s non-comedogenic and does not contain mineral oil, aminobenzoic acid, homosalate, oxybenzone or octinoxate.
Tatcha’s Silken sunscreen has a silky, creamy lotion consistency that glides on smoothly and absorbs instantly leaving a soft matte finish. I love how elegantly lightweight the formula is… it doesn’t even feel like I am wearing any sunscreen at all! It isn’t greasy or sticky, doesn’t leave a white cast (despite a whopping 15% zinc oxide) and doesn’t aggravate my acne, which is a huge plus for my finicky, breakout-prone skin!
The formula offers a light dose of moisture which is good enough for my normal to dry skin so I can easily skip moisturizer (the fewer steps I have to do in the morning the better!) Plus, it also works beautifully as a primer and slightly blurs the appearance of large pores on my cheeks. My foundation applies well on top, and stays put all day. And did I mention that it smells great too…light and soothing! I am hooked!
Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 35 has everything I want in my daily SPF – broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection (from gentle, mineral sunscreen actives), lightweight and non-greasy, moisturizing, non-comedogenic and doesn’t leave any white cast. No wonder it has quickly become one of my favorite facial sunscreens ever. Well done, Tatcha!
At $68 for 2 fl. oz, this product is on the expensive side but it’s well worth the splurge, especially if you haven’t yet found a face sunscreen you really like! Pick it up from Sephora, Barneys or Tatcha.com
