Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

TATCHA, as I have often recounted in these virtual pages, is an exquisitely elegant line that creates the finest quality products, and they are always far from ordinary. In fact, everything that this exemplary company conceives virtually attains cult status upon launch. 

When TATCHA sent me their most recent gem, TATCHA BALANCED Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer, which was created to serve as the perfect canvas for your favorite makeup, they likewise included a Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock print that evokes Katsushika Hokusai's The Great Wave. Its delightful inclusion, and the fact that it was inspired by their new ultra-light moisturizer, was intended as a means by which I could celebrate their newest creation by creating my own work of art! I cannot sufficiently express the extent to which I love TATCHA. They never cut corners, they always celebrate ritual, they respect history, and they create trail-blazing products that are consistently covet-worthy.  #waterlight #tatcha
TATCHA BALANCED Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer is an illuminating water gel moisturizer that offers the skin ultralight hydration that is likewise oil-balancing. While it is perfect for normal, combination and oily skin– it is also a great choice for many skin types during the warm months of summer when a lightweight moisturizer and hydrator are sought.

The fast-absorbing  and lightweight consistency is refreshing, clarifying and balancing, and it serves as a wonderful makeup base. If you have oily skin, you will be particularly struck by the extent to which this keeps your oil production in check, and extends the wear-time of your makeup.

Japanese Leopard Lily and Dokudami, which were expressly chosen for their efficacy in reducing shine and the appearance of blemishes, perfect the overall appearance of the skin. Furthermore, TATCHA included an infusion of 23-karat gold dust that gives skin an angelic, ethereal glow.

  1. Great paint job on your part! I take it that this is not suitable for dry skin. That was my take on it when I first saw the product launch.

    1. Thanks, Cindy! I'm glad that you liked it! I definitely do not think that this is necessary for people with dry skin– unless one's skin requires some balancing during the hot months of the year. I think that it is ideally suited to normal to oily sin types.

  3. I've gotta write my review on this lovely box. I thought this moisturizer wouldn't work for me with my dry skin but was I wrong! It's perfect for summer especially over or under a separate sunscreen.
