CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tatcha Japanese Skin Care & Beauty Products Review & Giveaway!!




Japan­ese geisha are well known world­wide for their mys­tery and beauty. When Vic­to­ria Tsai, founder of Tatcha, learned of a book pub­lished in Japan in 1813 that described 156 skin care ingre­di­ents and detailed instruc­tions about how to use them, she was inspired to cre­ate a 4-step skin care reg­i­men, or “rit­ual,” based on that of the geisha.

Peo­ple by the mil­lions have been singing the praises of Tatcha blot­ting papers since they first swiped one across their oily fore­heads in 2009! Tatcha founder Vic­to­ria Tsai def­i­nitely proves that her phe­nom­e­nal com­pany is no one-hit won­der with the release of a full skin care line based on authen­tic Japan­ese beauty rituals!!

“To be clear, this is no Mem­oirs of a Geisha fan­tasy. Years of hard work, befriend­ing Kyoto locals, and much sleuthing led Tsai to a 200-year-old text and a rare oppor­tu­nity to meet with a real geisha girl (with skin so flaw­less, it brought the brand founder to tears).

Tsai enlisted schol­ars to trans­late the text and met with sci­en­tists who helped her for­mu­late a base recipe of green tea, Oki­nawa red algae, and rice bran. The awe­some result was a skin care col­lec­tion span­ning camel­lia cleans­ing oil, exfo­li­at­ing enzyme pow­ders, licorice-rich bright­en­ing serum, and a silky moisturizer!





When one looks at a Japan­ese ladies face, they see noth­ing but sheer beauty. You see per­fectly gor­geous milky white flaw­less skin, and never notice a flaw in my per­sonal expe­ri­ence. I am so jeal­ous of their nat­ural beauty, and often won­dered why their skin was always per­fect. After being able to review the Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care prod­ucts, I see why now!! Have you ever seen a geisha that had a blem­ish or pim­ple? I haven’t!

The newly launched skin­care line cen­ters around 4 key prod­ucts; a 1-step Camel­lia Cleans­ing Oil, Rice Enzyme Pow­der, Bright­en­ing Serum and the Mois­ture Rich Silk Cream. Rather than load you down with unnec­es­sary prod­ucts, these are essen­tials per­fect for every day use. The Camel­lia cleans­ing oil is light­weight, yet loaded with camel­lia and rice bran – ingre­di­ents filled with skin heal­ing anti-oxidants.






For over 300 years, Japan’s geisha have been known for their beau­ti­ful, porce­lain skin. TATCHA dis­cov­ered their daily regimes in a 200-year-old man­u­script. Tatcha has worked with teams of sci­en­tists, schol­ars and geisha them­selves to deci­pher the rit­u­als and ingre­di­ents from this text.

Their all-natural for­mu­las car­ries the secrets of the geisha involv­ing the most pre­cious green teas, Oki­nawa red algae, rice bran and other time-tested ingredients.






My own per­sonal main con­cern is red­ness on my cheeks and improv­ing the over­all tex­ture of my skin with­out irri­tat­ing it fur­ther as my skin is super sen­si­tive. I think Tatcha is an excel­lent line (if not, the best one that I’ve tried) for these kinds of issues. The biggest improve­ment that I’ve seen thus far after a week’s usage is the reduc­tion of red­ness and a clar­ity that hasn’t been there in years. It’s not instan­ta­neous mind you and does not acheive your best look overnight in just one dose, but with con­tin­u­ous usage it does work, I promise you that. After just over one week some lin­ger­ing spots have healed and light­ened! Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care & Beauty Prod­ucts rock, believe me!!




I give Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care & Beauty Prod­ucts a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend that every­one try these amaz­ing products!
