TATCHA Skincare First Impressions (and I am IMPRESSED!)

TATCHA is a skincare company that contains unique Japanese Beauty Secrets infused into all of their products. The company founder, Victoria Tsai developed the company after her own passion for skincare led her to the far east in Asia and learning about the beautiful Japanese Geishas and what they use to keep their skin under there signature makeup flawless for hundreds of years. The products in the line all contain wonderful natural ingredients including Green Teas, Okinawa Red Algae, Rice Bran to name a few. Also important, all of the products are never formulated with mineral oil, synthetic colors or fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, phthalates, urea, PEGs, PPGs, DEA or TEA. They are also Non-irritating, Non-sensitizing and Dermatologist tested.

I have seen some products by this line presented on QVC a few times, they always wound up in my cart but for some unknown reason I now regret, I never purchased them until last week. Watching Victoria on QVC you can see her love, compassion and genuine happiness with the line she has created.

Now I am above and beyond impressed with this brand. Not just the products (which I promise I'll get to) but also for the company and founder. First off, I placed an order and barely two hours later I got the e-mail it shipped! WHAT? Not that they received it, but that the products were out to me. That is lightning fast. Shipping was also free and my order arrived priority 2 days later!!

When I opened up the box just the overall presentation of how the products were carefully layed out, and the products even inside the boxes were beautiful. It just seemed to me that so much time and care was put into my delivery. I also received a free gift upon first purchase with a promo code I found and was able to select three sample size packet to go along with my order.

Now, here is the icing on the cake. Aside from everything packed so wonderfully in the box, stock cards that gave me a ton of information about the products I received, including the samples (which I geeked out over because I love learning about ingredients and such) there was a letter. A typed letter thanking me for my purchase and then on the bottom A HAND WRITTEN NOTE! I don't think I ever received a hand written note when I placed an online order before. To me that shows this company truly cares about their customers. It was just so kind it truly moved me.

About those products now...My kind friend Misty mailed me a sample packet of the Pure one step Camellia Cleansing Oil because she loved it and wanted me to experience it too. 2 days before my order arrived I tried that packett and literally placed my order five minutes later. Yes, it was THAT good! What blew me away upon initial use was for starters there was nothing icky in it, including mineral oil, it left my face super soft and smooth and it removed every. trace. of. makeup. including waterproof mascara! I've tried other cleansing oils before but traces of my mascara and eyeliner always remained. Not with with one. I can't give a long time review of this product yet since I have only been using it a few days, but I will in the future.

The other product I ordered was the Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter. I ordered this product out of a cry for desperation to be perfectly honest. A few weeks ago I started developed an ugly rash on my torso (thank goodness not my face!) where I had these red scaly circle spots. I went to my dermatologist and I was diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea. Luckily it wasn't contagous and not from bacteria, but likely viral and brought on from stress inside. Either way, I wanted these spots gone and nothing, I mean NOTHING was making them fade even a little bit. The inidigo in this body butter is an anti-inflammatory. Scientific studies have shown that this indigo has a remarkable effect to soothe dry and irritated skin. The body butter also contains liquid silk and squalane to further protect and nourish the skin.

The pretty inidigo blue color of this body butter is mesmerizing. The smell is fresh and just delightful and the formula sinks into my skin instantly without feeling sticky or tacky. I have been using this body butter now almost a week (even longer than when I mentioned it in my video below) and it truly is a MIRACLE. I noticed a decrease in the spots after the first use. Is that even possible?!? Consistently using this cream twice a day and the spots have faded so much they are almost gone! Even my boyfriend can't believe it (and luckily, Mr. sensitive nose approves the smell of the butter) Other pleasant side effects of this body butter are that my skin feels like satin and the pimple like bumps I've had on the back of my arms forever have seemed to magically go away as well!

I'm sorry this blog post is long. But as mentioned before, this brand truly impressed and wowed me. It was my first but certainly not my last TATCHA purchase! I look forward to trying other items in this line in the future.
