Tatcha Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer
There was a day not so long ago, when I carried oil blotting papers wherever I went, as long as I left home. More than the annoyance of carrying the usually slim pouches containing those oil blotters, was the annoyance of having to sneak away from a business meeting or lunch with friends to secretly oil blot my face in the bathroom. Sometimes I had to do this sitting in the car, hurriedly, worried people walking by would see and wonder what weird ritual I’m doing.
All vanity? First world problems? Of course but for those of us fortunate to live in first world situations, who really enjoys having a face that looks like someone just doused it with a cup of olive oil?
As much as I’ve come to appreciate having oily skin (we age slower than those with dry skin), I don’t enjoy having my face shine brighter than the lights in a business meeting room and I definitely didn’t enjoy the interruption of oil blotting every two hours.
Gone are those days for me.
Ever since using the Tatcha Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer every morning, I can go out with little make-up, lots of sunscreen, heavier make-up- whatever I feel like for the day, and by evening, I won’t have blotted even one time. I noticed this stark difference after a full month of use when one late afternoon, in the midst of a meeting I had to use the bathroom. I inspected my face and realized it not only looked like the great skin I had worked hard to achieve but it wasn’t oily to the touch.
Its appearance like liquid gold, Tatcha’s Water Gel Moisturizer lives up to every one of its promises. Balance and clarify skin? Check. Visibly tightens pores in 28 days? Check. The specs of 23k carat gold imparting an exquisite, shine-free glow? Check.
What’s more, this daytime moisturizer does a fantastic job of keeping skin thoroughly hydrated without feeling heavy. Made with Japanese Wild Rose, Leopard Lily and Dokudami extracts, this moisturizer is non-comedogenic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing and dermatologist tested.
As with all Tatcha skincare products, this is formulated without Parabens, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, Sulfate Detergents, Urea, DEA, TEA or Phthalates.
At US $68 for a 50mL bottle, this liquid gold lasts approximately 5 months with once daily use. With Tatcha’s magical touch, a little goes a long way here with no need to use pump after pump to achieve that oil-free but dewy, hydrated skin healthy look.
