Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mask, The Silk Canvas, And The Pearl Review

Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer

Hello! Happy Friyay! There are some new Tatcha products in town and I can’t wait to discuss them with you guys today. As you all know, I’m in love with almost every Tatcha products, I mean, who doesn’t? I think their products are just high quality and are really made to work. Their skincare stuff are usually the ones I always seem to use and they never disappoint. Lately, I saw that they seem to be gearing towards not only making skincare products but also making something that’s a cross between makeup and skincare. Well, how exciting is that? So check out these three new releases from them.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask Review

Luminous Dewy Skin Mask (1 x 0.68 oz: $12, 4 x 0.68 oz: $45) – This facial mask has that slight signature Tatcha scent and is very soaked with the serum to the point that it’s almost dripping right out of the package. The mask sheet doesn’t feel too thick and not too thin. It feels cooling and refreshing once applied to the face and it gives a nice calming and relaxing sensation. A few minutes into its usage, I noticed my skin feeling soft and very hydrated. You’re supposed to leave this mask on the face for 15 minutes, but I like to keep mine on a little bit longer until the sheet starts to feel a bit dry – that took about a whole 30 something minutes for me. Tatcha advises to massage the remaining serum on the face after taking off the mask, which I did, and my skin really feels drenched, super moisturized and truly dewy. This is definitely a very good facial mask and one that I definitely recommend whether you’re just starting into masks or are a true die-hard face mask fan. I actually think that this mask is one of the best I’ve tried out there and it definitely ranks higher than the ones made by Sephora. Also, it’s the next best thing compared to the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, my other favorite. The SK-II Mask has a thicker sheet and is extremely drenched with the Pitera serum. It doesn’t dry out immediately but it’s also quite more expensive than this Tatcha Dewy Skin Mask. Anyhow, whichever mask you’d choose, you’re definitely going to like any of them.

Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer Review

Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer

 

The Silk Canvas Protective Primer (0.7 oz: $52) – I was so curious about this primer. The packaging looks really sleek and simply beautiful and I thought it would be more like a compact when you open it, but you actually have to twist it and you need to use its complimentary round spatula in order to scrape a small amount of product. That’s because this isn’t your typical liquid primer, this is a solid silky luxe facial primer that has a nice intense signature Tatcha scent that’s common to most Tatcha products. I mean, this primer smells very good. It’s like finally! a primer that smells divine, sans any silicone scent. My face literally smells so nice and I couldn’t help but notice it all the time. This primer feels silky to the touch and it also makes my face feel silky smooth once applied. Don’t worry about its creamy white color, it won’t leave a white cast on the face. My foundations (liquids, creams, and a few powders) go on easily and not look splotchy. My pores appear blurred and it gives a natural finish whenever I use a luminous type of foundation. Also, it doesn’t make my face look dry whenever I use a mattifying one. I find that this primer does a good job at holding my foundation for several hours (6 or more ). Now, do I think I could find another primer that could do the same job? Yes sure. Do I also think this product is worth it? Yes, this is a luxurious primer that not only does an overall good job at priming the face, lips, and eyes, using this is also quite a sensorial experience. The only thing that kind of irks me about this is how you have to twist the container in order to open it, and it can be quite slippery to the touch sometimes. Also, you’re really gonna need the scraper that it came with because using the fingers alone won’t allow you to grab enough product.

 

Tatcha The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment

The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment in Softlight (0.4 oz: $48) – In what probably could be the best packaging I’ve ever seen for an eye cream product, this Tatcha The Pearl Eye Treatment is absolutely beautiful and enchanting with its, of course, pearl-like container. This hybrid of an eye treatment and makeup-in-one is very intriguing. You can use this as a tinted eye treatment/moisturizer, or as a concealer. It feels very lightweight yet very creamy. It’s also non-sticky and is extremely pigmented. You only need a tiny bit of product and it’s good enough to cover your whole undereye situation. LOL. I suggest that you don’t swipe this across the undereye immediately because it will look patchy, especially if your skin is kind of dry. Just try to dab it on the skin to sorta warm it up and it will blend in well. I was actually quite unsure about my shade match when I purchased this product. I thought the medium shade or the Softlight might look too dark for me because it looks quite brownish on the picture and in the packaging. Also, the light shade (Moonlight) looks too bright for me as well. So I decided on the medium shade and boy I was right. This color tends to get lighter and brighter as soon as you apply it. It illuminates the eyes and gives this kind of naturally awake look. The formula itself has Akoya Pearls, Silk Powder, and Botanical Extracts that are meant to reduce dark circles and brighten the eye area. While it remains to be proven whether pearls actually has skincare benefits, I feel like there’s a lot to love with this Tatcha Eye Treatment. It really brightens the undereye area just like a concealer and you won’t even need one. Although, you could perfectly layer your favorite concealer with this, but personally, I could get by just by using this eye treatment. Some mentioned that the packaging is really small for its price and yes it does look like there’s not a lot of product in it, but actually there is because this is so pigmented that all you really need is a rice amount to get a full coverage on the undereyes. This product has been recently released, so I will keep testing this to see if this really has a brightening effect over time.

Apart from these three Tatcha new releases, they’ve also released their Deep Cleanse facial cleanser (reviewed here) which is one of the best face cleansers I’ve ever tried, both by scent and by formula. Overall, it’s another job well-done by Tatcha for these amazing products, and I highly recommend them. They feel so pampering on the skin and I love that some of their stuff are not just great as skincare, but also great as makeup.

 

The Tatcha Silk Primer, Luminous Dewy Mask, and The Pearl are currently available at Sephora and JCPenney

 

Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask Review

Hello There, let’s start this week with a bang! this is gonna be an exciting week, plus it’s 4th of July tomorrow, what’s your plan? but before that, Tatcha recently released its highly anticipated anti-aging mask, the Violet-C Radiance Mask (1.7 oz: $68) and I’ve got some exciting photos for ya.

 

Tatcha Violet-C Mask Review

 

The Violet-C Radiance Mask by Tatcha is a violet-colored mask that smells slightly clayish and sweet. It has Japanese beautyberry, two types of Vitamin C and AHAS from seven fruits, green tea, rice and some other anti-aging ingredients. This mask is extremely creamy, soothing and hydrating. It also rinses off easily and it makes the face smooth and soft.

It stays creamy and thick throughout the application and it doesn’t dry or solidify like some other masks. What this does is to provide extreme hydration to the face while loading it with antioxidants and anti-aging properties for that smooth and youthful glow. It’s practically great for any skin type because it doesn’t really irritate the skin, and I find that this works great for my redness as it seems to neutralize it and it improves my skin’s texture.

 

Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask Review

 

There is no stinging sensation with this Japanese-made Mask, because it doesn’t have any harsh ingredients, although it might make you look like a purple Smurf, but it’s alright because this washes off easily and your skin will feel totally soft. It makes it easier to squeeze the blackheads out. Ha!. On the other hand, I love the packaging. As always, Tatcha wows us with their gorgeous and luxurious packaging. The mask even comes with a golden spatula and a nice sleek box with a Japanese flair to it.

 

Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask

This Mask can be used 2-3 times a week and you can leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, then you can rinse it off with warm water and voila! This mask is packed with ingredients that our skin needs, especially after any stress or exposure to harsh environment. The added two types of Vitamin C are a huge benefit and a necessity as part of any skincare, so I’m definitely gonna be using this long term.
