Tatcha INDIGO Soothing Renewal Treatment & Collection Review

TATCHA INDIGO SOOTHING RENEWAL TREATMENT 2LOVELY DISCOVERY

$98 / .5 fl.oz. indigo jar | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★★ (9/10)

Rich in anti-inflammatory Indigo, liquid Silk and Squalane, TATCHA’s INDIGO Soothing Renewal Treatment Cream softens and soothes irritated skin.

Experience/Skin Type: Rich balm/cream with mild herbal scent. Suitable for any skin type, especially sensitive, inflamed or irritated skin consistent with symptoms of dermatitis and eczema.

Key Ingredients:  The stems, leaves and petals of the Indigo plant are steeped in water and fermented to make a concentrated botanical extract. Tryptanthrin and indirubin actives help reduce irritation and promote skin’s natural healing abilities. Due to the natural botanical extract, the shade of Indigo may vary; the efficacy of the formulation remains the same. (Source: tatcha.com)

Quick Review: Magic in a jar, this blue creamy balm gently alleviates annoying skin conditions like dry, itchy skin and helped to heal my daughter’s eczema.

TATCHA DESIGN Can we briefly discuss the pure lovely genius of Tatcha packaging? Such amazing detail and artistry goes into everything Tatcha – each thoughtful piece is visually cohesive throughout the collection. I personally appreciate the attention to details – from the embossed spoons, ribbons and washi paper inserts. Victoria Tsai & Stanley Hainsworth truly create a multi-sensory journey that holds luxury cosmetics to a new standard.

THE REVIEW Till recently, if you suffered from troublesome skin conditions like eczema, rosacea or dermatitis your solutions were limited to drugstore tubes of goopy and odd smelling ointments and balms – or steroid creams from the dermatologist. Glamour Factor = zero.

Tatcha’s new INDIGO Collection remedies this with three products designed for problem skin, but with formulations so luxurious that all skins will delight in its restorative results: INDIGO Soothing Renewal Treatment, INDIGO Soothing Silk Hand Cream and INDIGO Soothing Silk Body Butter.

TATCHA INDIGO SOOTHING RENEWAL TREATMENT 23

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Renewal Treatment SwatchThe core of the INDIGO Collection is the Soothing Renewal Treatment. This rich, dense balmy blue (yes – blue) cream is designed to cocoon skin in a healing environment rich in fermented stems, leaves and petals of Japan’s famous Indigo (or Samurai Blue) plant. You simply massage a little onto troubled areas and skin is immediately soothed – and after a few days, everything from minor breakouts to full blown eczema is noticeably reduced.

While this has worked amazingly well on my mild rosacea, cosmetic irritations and dry eye area (orbital bone only please), this isn’t by any means a cure for more severe skin problems. My daughter has severe eczema on the inside of her elbows – and this alone didn’t help with the itching. When the itching is bad, I use Aveeno 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream with a layer of the Soothing Renewal over it. This combination calms the persistent itch and by morning, skin looks substantially less inflamed. However, once the itching phase subsides, we use Soothing Renewal to help minimize scarring and speed up healing.

BLUE?? Yes. It’s blue (or indigo technically). The high concentration of the Indigo ferment in the Soothing Renewal Treatment does leave a slightly visible blue cast on the skin. I primarily use it at night when skin is in its optimal healing phase.

This miracle comes at a price. At $98 for .5 fl.oz., luckily this treatment is very concentrated and doesn’t require a lot of product per application. Since it isn’t a product you would use everyday (but could if desired) it will last a long time. If you only suffer from mild conditions – the coordinating Soothing Silk Hand Cream and Body Butter may be enough to satisfy your needs. Although anyone with any annoying skin conditions will tell you – when you find something that works (and this does) you quickly get over the price.

TIPS AND TRICKSIf you suffer from particularly dry skin or for a nourishing boost: 1. First spray skin with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist ($48). 2. Mix a few drops of Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil ($95) with the Soothing Silk Body Butter and massage into skin. 3. Pat on Soothing Renewal Treatment to driest areas. You can also use it under a sleeping mask or heavier moisturizer.

TATCHA INDIGO COLLECTION

Tatcha Product ReviewsINDIGO Soothing Silk Hand Cream ($38 for 60mL) – Unusually lightweight (no sticky, slippery hands!) and extremely effective. Mainland (what Hawaii people call the continental US) water and air is very different from ours – and tend to wreck havoc on our skin, normally resulting in dry, itchy skin that lasts weeks after we return home. This pale blue hand cream kept our hands from getting dry & itchy during a family trip – even the guys didn’t mind the mild herbal scent. It is the only hand cream I’ve been inspired to use regularly since it absorbs well, works and comes in a lovely tube. Love.

Tatcha Product ReviewsTATCHA INDIGO SOOTHING SILK BODY BUTTER -SQUAREINDIGO Soothing Silk Body Butter ($48 for 6.8 oz.) – I will admit that while a near obscene amount of time and effort is spent on my facial skin – my body tends to get neglected. Since discovering the Tatcha INDIGO Collection, my entire self is pampered – which has lead to more restful nights and sense of well-being (no exaggeration). Like the other products in the Tatcha INDIGO Collection, this luxurious body cream has a blue coloration and decadent texture – both which vanish on contact. All that’s left behind is comforted, hydrated, glowing skin worthy of Summer’s shortest hemlines.
