Are They Worth The Hype: Tatcha Water Cream and Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser

Are They Worth The Hype: Tatcha Water Cream and Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser

Hey y’all!

It’s been quite some time since I tried any new skin care products. Over the past few months, my general health has been going through some changes ( nothing too serious so don’t be alarmed ūüôā ) and as a result of that my skin has been going through it y’ all!¬†I have been blessed to have had overall good skin throughout my life. Barely a blemish… EVER! Until recently my face has been experiencing said blemishes, dullness and is just overall BLAH. So, I ¬†decided to test a few different products out to try and figure out a new routine to get my skin back on track- starting with these two Tatcha products.

Now, these products ARE NOT products I would ever purchase on my own simply because of the price. But the Sephora VIB sale and the travel sizes of these two products made this possible(LOL) so thank you Sephora! Let’s get to reviewing!

 Tatcha Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser:  

This is a gel cleanser product which is ( as I’ve been told) great for the oily /combination skin that I have.

The Packaging:

The soft teal colour of the packaging is appealing to the eye. What I don’t care for in this product’s container, is that I’m not a huge fan of the squeeze bottle top. The hole is so small that you have to give it a good squeeze to get the product out and some times too much product comes out.

The Product:

I absolutely love how much of a gentle exfoliant this product is! You most definitely can feel it breaking down the debris on your skin but it isn’t harsh. It also leaves your skin feeling ever so soft. ¬†A little bit of this product goes a long way. It has a light, fresh and fruity scent that is very appealing to my nose!

Results on my skin:

I used this product for about 2 weeks consistently on my skin and honestly, I didn’t notice that huge of a difference on my skin except I ¬†did notice that I was slightly less oily.

Cost:

A 5 oz bottle of this product will run you… $49.00 ( Canadian Currency) Yikes…

Is it Worth The Hype:

No. And the price of this product solidifies this for me

Tatcha - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL Clean at Sephora

Tatcha Water Cream

So many beauty influencers swear by this cream so I decided to give it try! I truly wanted to know what all the hype was about…

The Packaging:

Once again the teal packaging with gold accents was really appealing to the eye. I liked that this cream came in jar form. It really allowed for the careful distribution of the product.

The Product:

The thin water like texture was very appealing to me. A small amount of the product was able to effectively moisturize my entire face without adding excess oil to my skin.

Results on my skin:

Ok, I loved this product! While I have combination skin with the majority of oils settling on my t-zone, my skin still had the ability to look dull and sallow.  This product really helped bring life back to my skin! I felt comfortable enough to go bare-faced after a few weeks of consistent use. 

Cost: A 1.70z jar of this will cost you $89.00 ( Canadian) YIKES!

Is it Worth The Hype:

Yes! I love how it worked for my skin. However, the price point certainly kept me on the hunt for products that are more cost effective. (stayed tuned)

Tatcha - The Water Cream 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Clean at Sephora

I was able to purchase the travel sized duo of these products for only $33.00( Canadian) at my local Sephora.

Beauty Blog: Current Skin Care Routine

Beauty Blog: Current Skin Care Routine

Hey y’all!

I hope this day finds you in good health, feeling good and enjoying life! Today, in honor of the first day of school ( It actually wasn’t too bad this year ūüėõ ) ¬†I wanted to share my current skin care routine. Now, I must say, I have been really blessed with pretty good skin. Aside from the occasional blemish ( and pimples due to other womanly situations) I’ve never really had to do much to maintain clear skin. But with age ( Yes I know I’m not old by any means lol) my skin has gone¬†through changes. Recently, my skin has changed from combination skin ( dry and oily) to more on the oily side. So, I’ve had to change-up my products.So… this is what I’m currently using.

Lets start with the products I use on a daily basis and I’ll list them in the order that I use them in:

Step One: Clean and Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser: Love this product. I use this in my evening shower routine. I particularly reach for this product when I wear a full face of makeup all day long. If I have a very basic face ( concealer, powder, eyeliner, mascara) I jump right into step two.

Step Two: Simple Cleansing Micellar Water: ( What is a Micellar Water?  It  is a skin care product that removes makeup and cleanses the skin, without the need for rinsing) I use this product in lieu of makeup removal wipes. I enjoy that it gets the majority of my makeup off, but I however am super particular about my skin so I always follow this with a cleanser

Step Three: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (pink grapefruit) This is my Holy Grail product! If they ever discontinue this product, I don’t know what I’ll do ūüôā I really like this product because of the microbeads in this formula. This helps eliminate blackheads ( which is one skin blemish I tend to get more often as of late) It smells fantastic! ¬†I truly feel my skin tingling while using this product. It doesn’t leave my face feeling overly dry, which I also love.

Step Four: Next, I like to moisturize with a product from a local business vendor ( my friend Vanessa) Oubel Lemongrass Body Butter.(This can be used all over the body) This is another Holy Grail product for me! My skin has never felt so smooth! Whenever I’m feeling stressed or my skin I ¬†just needs a boost, I like to use the Ginger Mousse Mask from this line to give my face some life!

What I love about these products, is that they are all easily accessible and cost-effective. I can purchase all of these products (with the exception of the Oubel products)  at Wal-Mart or Shoppers Drug Mart ( similar store to a CVS or Rite Aid). All of these items are all priced 15 dollars and under!  Check them out!

I try to do a Ginger Mousse Mask once per week and do the remaining steps daily! What’s your skin care regimen? Any products I should try to combat oily skin? Let me know!
