Tatcha Moisturizer Guide & Reviews
(L-R): The Tatcha Moisturizer Line Up: Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum, Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream, Gold Camellia Beauty Oil, Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream
TATCHA is a remarkably simple, effective and elegant skin care brand that started with gold-flecked blotting papers and has quickly evolved into a brand to watch (and maybe to aspire to). While the brand started with a single, brilliant moisturizer – Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream – there are now several curated products that can be used individually, or in tandem to achieve glowing, healthy skin for a spectrum of skin types.
Here is a comprehensive list of Tatcha moisturizing and nourishing products from lightest to richest.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
$48 / 40ml. spray mist | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)
A silky liquid spray on moisturizer of Squalane, Red Algae and our HADASEI-3 complex can be misted for a boost of soothing hydration, resulting in dewy, luminous skin anytime, anywhere. This milky emulsion contains moisturizers and humectants leaving skin rehydrated. Does not contain high levels of alcohol and fragrance found in conventional hydrating sprays, which can dry out the skin.
PRESENTATION: Gorgeous gradient periwinkle blue glass bottle (its clear on the bottom so you can tell when you’re running low) that delivers a fine mist.
EXPERIENCE/SKIN TYPE: Light, milky lotion mist with a scent like Japanese floral tea. The LUMINOUS Dewy Skin Mist is ideal for those with dry or combination skin. It is also beneficial for those who live in dry climates, fly often, or are often exposed to air-conditioning or heaters, which can rob skin of essential moisture.
QUICK REVIEW: Tatcha Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist is a wonderful hydrating lotion that utilizes the amazing water retaining properties of precious Okinawan Red Algae. Ideal for those with truly dry/dehydrated skin, for dry/hot climates or for travel. Combination/oily/acne skins can enjoy the benefits – with judicious and moderate application/use. Tatcha Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist is by far the most hydrating facial mist on the market. [READ FULL REVIEW]
Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum
$95 / 30ml. serum | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
A firming serum featuring a deeply hydrating blend of Okinawa red algae and hyaluronic acid to nourish skin in need of bounceback.
PRESENTATION: A simple periwinkle bottle with pump.
EXPERIENCE/SKIN TYPE: Ultra-lightweight gel serum that has a light scent and absorbs quickly into the skin. Ideal for all skin types – even oily and acne prone. Works extremely well at keeping acne prone skin from over drying from treatments.
QUICK REVIEW: One of my favorite Tatcha products! The weather in Hawaii this Summer has been very uncomfortable and humid – which has made a recent acne breakout (thanks to hormones) particularly unruly. I normally cannot handle harsh acne treatments and the gentle products have done nothing to keep them at bay. The Tatcha Deep Rice Enzyme Powder ($65) and this serum have helped keep my skin balanced and calm – even while using stronger acne treatments.
That said, even dry and mature skin can benefit from this serum (which smells amazing by the way). It infuses skin with moisture, which lends a hand to any moisturizer without feeling heavy or thick.
Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream
$150 / 50ml. light cream | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
Luxurious yet weightless feeling gel-cream of Liquid Silk, Squalane, Royal Jelly + HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex.
PRESENTATION: Lovely white hard plastic jar with indigo ribbon detail and gold spoon.
EXPERIENCE/SKIN TYPE: Gel-cream (leaning more toward a cream) with a soft scent. Ideal for oily and normal/combination skin. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing.
QUICK REVIEW: 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.

Tatcha Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
$95 / 30ml. face oil | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
A light and rich beauty oil for face, hair and body. Infused Licorice Root Extract gently calms skin, while young Bamboo and Green Tea fragrances offer transport to a Kyoto countryside.
PRESENTATION: Lovely clear glass with periwinkle gradient and push top dropper.
EXPERIENCE/SKIN TYPE: Gorgeously (but lightly & naturally) scented multipurpose oil that absorbs well and leaves a soft glow. Ideal for all skin types – except very oily.
QUICK REVIEW: As a huge fan of facial oils, I’ve tried quite a few and the Tatcha Gold Camellia Beauty Oil has become my favorite oil – for the body. Don’t get me wrong, it works wonderfully on the face but since it has this incredibly fresh natural scent, I found myself slathering it on my legs, arms and hair (ends only). Since its more of a dry oil, it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a sticky residue as long as I didn’t over apply. If my legs are particularly dry, a quick application followed by the Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter takes them from ashy to glowing. Camellia Oil is popular in Japan for use on the hair, so using it to tame ends and add shine was a no brainer. Can I mention again that the bottle is ridiculously gorgeous. [READ FULL REVIEW]
Tatcha Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream
$185 / 50ml. rich cream | tatcha.com
Product Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
Our intensive renewal cream provides deep anti-aging benefits and promotes microcirculation to reduce age spots and renew appearance.
PRESENTATION: Lovely white-periwinkle gradated hard plastic jar with periwinkle ribbon detail and gold spoon.
EXPERIENCE/SKIN TYPE: Deceptively light but nourishing cream with light scent. Ideal for dry skin or cold weather.
QUICK REVIEW: As the heaviest of the Tatcha moisturizers, even the Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream is remarkably light in texture, but feels incredibly creamy and cushions dry, mature skin. While it’s too heavy for my combination skin, using it a few times a month as a “sleeping mask” to hydrate and plump skin has become ritual. Those with dry, mature or dehydrated skin will celebrate the results as it easily brings skin back to its optimum state. Used with the Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder and Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum, even the driest skin becomes plump and glowing in a few weeks. Those with oilier skin can get similar results with the Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream – which is also a good option for Summer or warmer climates.
