QUICK REVIEW: Nevermind that this is one of my all time favorite nourishing products (and I’ve tested hundreds). What impressed me the most about this deceivingly light moisture cream is that my 60+ year old mother who has the most sensitive skin EVER – loves it.
Aside from their controversial history, Geisha of Japan have been synonymous with flawless, porcelain skin (mochi hada which refers to the quality of a baby’s skin) and revered beauty. Tatcha has thoughtfully recreated the simple ritual that offers modern day women the gift of pure, polished, radiant and supple skin.
The final step in the geisha’s skincare ritual is providing a long-lasting moisture barrier for healthy looking skin. Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream provides all skin types with an incredibly comforting blanket of moisture that feels hydrating and soothing without an occlusive layer of product. Silk is used in place of visually perfecting silicone to give skin a smooth appearance without clogging pores or simply masking imperfections. Results (improved hydration, skin texture and cushion) are cumulative and become very apparent after about 2-4 weeks of use.
Each formula contains Tatcha’s HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex which consists of Red Algae (enhances skin’s barrier function), Rice Bran (anti-oxidant/moisturizer – considered hypoallergenic) and Green Tea (antioxidant).
Wild Thyme, Ginseng Root and Royal Jelly promote natural moisturizing via hyalauronic acid synthesis and amino acid balance.
INGREDIENT BITE: “Royal jelly is used as a component in some skin care and natural beauty products. In holistic healing circles and popular alternative medicine folklore, royal jelly is believed to have anti-aging properties stemming primarily from its amino acid content and broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals.” – Wikipedia
My combination skin does very well with this light creamy gel moisturizer. It’s smoother, moist and glowing with zero irritation and breakouts. It was a little too moist for daytime use during warmer months (I use Dewy Skin Mist instead) – but during cooler weather (which are brief in Hawaii), Moisture Rich Silk Cream kept my skin from getting dry.
The true testimony here is my Mother’s skin. We were sitting at dinner one night and after using this cream consistently for about 6 weeks, I noticed how much her skin has improved. When I say improved, I mean its smoother, more even and firmer. And zero irritation.Up to this point, she was using the same drugstore moisturizer for years because EVERYTHING gave her a rash. Everything.
Mom had been using the small trial size from the Discovery Kit and “borrowing” from my big jar!! So we got her a lovely jar of her own for her birthday! She won’t let me post her picture – but I swear her skin looks amazing for 60+.
Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream may be a little pricey – there’s no groundbreaking ingredient or statistics to warrant the elevated price range. HOWEVER – the proof is in the pudding (or in this case the gel cream) and Moisture Rich delivers steady, reliable, non-irritating (my Mom is proof positive) results making this worth its weight in gold. Did I mention that the packaging is the most beautiful I’ve EVER seen? The details and results make Moisture Rich Silk Cream worth every penny.
