The Tatcha Sampler Set


Back in April I reviewed the Tatcha Aburatorigami Beauty Papers and as a thank you gift, Vicky at Tatcha sent me their Sampler Set to try out - I was so touched that she sent this. After finishing up some other skincare products that were in line first, I finally get to try these samples now! I started using them on Thanksgiving morning, we're now on day 4 and my skin is soft, supple, hydrated, clean and most impressive, my pores are cleared of "grime". After my first use of the cleanser, enzyme powder, serum and cream I was so surprised to see my pores open and clean - it's not a sight I particularly like (porous textures make me squirm) but to see my skin so youthful and feeling invigorated was an experience I want to relive over and over. Although these are just sample sizes, you don't need a lot of product to get the effect. I am completely in love with the Tatcha skincare products, specifically the enzyme powder - it's incredible and unlike anything I've ever tried before. If I ever can afford to splurge, I'll be buying Tatcha!!

The Tatcha Sampler Set
regular price $126.00 | special price $49.00
Brilliantly effective and deceptively simple daily ritual, available in rituals tailored for dry, combination and active skin.

set includes:
- PURE Camellia One Step Cleansing Oil - 30ml | 1oz
- POLISHED Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder - 3 x 1g packets
- POLISHED Classic Rice Enzyme Powder - 3 x 1g packets
- POLISHED Deep Rice Enzyme Powder - 3 x 1g packets
- RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum - 10ml | 0.3oz
- SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream - 15ml | 0.5oz
+ PETAL FRESH Original Japanese Beauty Papers - 1 full sized pack | 30 sheets


The Rice Enzyme powders are well worth their $65 price tags. I add a few drops of water to the powder in my palm and as it starts to fizz a bit, I apply it to my skin, gently massaging it in - best part, it is so kind to my ultra sensitive skin, no irritation or burning. After a minute of massaging, I rinse off with warm water and enjoy the glow of new skin. I think I prefer the Gentle version, but I do like all three - Deep is definitely stronger but again, very easy on the skin.










The cleansing oil, serum and cream feel luxurious, smell delightfully fresh and they truly aid in keeping my skin soft. As I'm more impressed with the Enzyme powders, I love the cleansing oil as well! It is so smooth and silky on the skin, and after rinsing my skin doesn't feel tight or drying up instantly like most facial cleaners treat my face.
