Hi loves, today I want to share some skin care products with you. After just TWO WEEKS I can't believe the difference they've made on my skin !!! Pictures are without any filter,retouch or photoshop(I took them by my phone because I wasn't intentionally to show the before-after pictures), and here these are screenshots on my phone:
Upper picture is before, lower picture is After:
If you want to know what I used, please keep reading :)
So this how it started:
My skin suddenly started to have bad breakouts on my face everywhere. They were really visiable and big. I was like OMG What should I do ?!! I don't normally have breakouts, so this is kind of big deal for me. I was trying to think whether it’s because of my diet or not, but I eat pretty healthy and I go to gym regularly. I wasn't even be able to put any foundation on my face. So I decided to change my entire skin care that I was using!!!
I am a big fan of Japanese makeup and skincare and I also went to Japan twice LOVE there!!! :) I wasn't familiar with Tatcha until I saw their Dewy Skin Mist on Sephora’s website and was recommend by couple famous MUAs on instagram. But the most important thing when I check their products out is their products are without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates and they are made in Japan! (ingredients are really important to me when I buy skin care products). I checked the benefit of their ingredients before I pruchase anything.

I got the Ritual discovery kit, Camellia Cleansing Oil in full size, and Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder in travel size.
First, the ritual discovery kit is a two-week introduction has essential four steps(which I think it’s a great idea, so customers can give it a try before they spend their money to buy full sizes, their products are kind of pricy ).
The Ritual Discovery Kit includes:
- PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Travel Size：25mL
I use the Camellia Cleansing Oil every night; it reminds me cleansing oils from Shu uemura(I will write a comparison post soon). I just put one pump of the oil on my dry face and massage it on my entire face and even my neck for 2 or 3 mins, then add warm water while I am massaging it. Once the oil is mixed with warm water it became milky creamy like on my face. This oil is super gentle with a great cleansing power and it makes my face feel neither greasy nor dry. Though I would not just use it alone to remove my makeup. I always use cleansing water or my regular cleanser (or Rice Enzyme Powder )to clean my face after I used the Camellia Cleansing Oil (I just don't want any makeup or dirts stay on my face before I go to bed.)
The Enzyme Powder is for exfoliating your skin, I really love this also. Because it’s so gentle and left my skin baby-soft and smooth. Some people said it also helps with blackheads, so I am going to keep using it and see the result. This is water-activated and I use it twice every week. What makes it special is their ingredients: rice bran, papaya and HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex. The Serum supposes to restore skin and give it a luminous glowing skin, but I do not really use it, only at night. Then it's the Moisture Rich Silk Cream I love love it, because it calms my skin and it makes my skin soft and also moistures my skin, but the finishing is different than other moisturizers I have; this cream has a thicker formula. This is good for my dry skin :)
As you can see my pictures, my breakouts are cleared out and skin became so much better! I am really happy about that! I have not be so impressed by any skincare products until I tried Tatcha! Now I will keep using this skincare line, thinking about to get some of their other products, like their moisture cream and new eye cream.
