My "Holy Grail" Skin Care Products
Happy New Year! It's been a while but I decided that this year is going to be the year I get back into blogging. 2017 was a difficult and busy year for me so now it is time to get back into something I love doing, and that is sharing my love for fashion, nails, and beauty with you all! My first post of the year is my updated skin care routine, enjoy!
The past few weeks I have been trying a brand called Tatcha. Not only have their products been a godsend for my skin, but they are beautifully packaged. There is something about them that feels super luxurious and I actually look forward to my nightly skin care routine now. I have been using the Pure One step Camellia Cleansing Oil, Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder, and The Water Cream for about 3 weeks. Prior to starting this regimen I was having the worst breakouts of my life. I constantly had breakouts forming around my hair line/forehead and in other random spots on my face. Growing up I had fantastic skin so this bothered me terribly. I resorted to concealer and coverup which I never used to wear and I am sure made the issue worse. Fast forward to now, my skin is completely clear and hasn't looked this good in years. I will go into detail of each product below.
Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil- This is the first step in my nightly ritual, this product takes off all the makeup of the day without being over drying like other cleansers I have tried in the past. It is an oil based cleanser, however it doesn't have the heavy feel that is mostly associated with anything with the word oil in it. I start with 2-3 pumps of this product and massage it all over my face, including the eye area. I then wash it off with warm water before using the next product.
Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder- This is a really cool product, it is a powder that when mixed with water turns into a foamy texture. This is an extremely gentle exfoliator and can be used every day without fear of it drying out your skin. The beauty of this product is that there are a few different versions for every skin type. They recommend using about a half of teaspoon mixed with water and then massaging this product over your face avoiding the eye area.
The Water Cream- This is the final step in my regimen. I have been through many moisturizers and none of them have compared to this one. This is an extremely light moisturizer however it is very hydrating. I love the texture of this one and the cute little gold spoon it comes with. The little spoon helps scoop out just enough product as well as helps keep the product from getting bacteria from using your hands (even with clean hands I feel this is awesome for keeping bacteria from being spread). I do clean it after each use as well.
In just those 3 easy steps my skin has completely transformed. I was honestly really impressed with these products I had yet to figure out which products would work for my skin without making my breakouts worse. I started with travel sizes to see if they would be worth my investment, they have just about every product in travel size for those who wish to do the same. The products are a little on the pricey side but for good skin care it is worth it. My skin care is one thing I don't want to skimp out on. It is important to note, these products work for my skin, but everyone's skin is different. The beauty of this brand is that they have products for every type of skin and their customer service is excellent. Just follow them on Instagram and you'll see they respond to everyone's comments and questions. This alone makes me want to try more from them! You can pick up some of their products at Sephora or directly on Tatcha's website (Sephora by me didn't seem to have many options for travel size if you want to try products first). Thanks for reading, I hope you will all stick with me through this new year!
