The Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist is a hydrating facial spray that is meant to be used in the morning, night, and any time in between. It's packaged in gorgeous blue to white gradient packaging. Squalene and Glycerin provide hydration, while extracts from algae, licorice, camellia flower, and ginseng treat your skin. It's quite different from water sprays. This spray comes out as a fine mist that has a serum like consistency on the face. That said, I would not call this serum as it does not sink in quickly and disappear. You are left with a moisturizing residue protecting your face. This worked very well to give my face a lasting refreshed look and feel. However, I noticed a velvety feel to my skin that is characteristic of silicone containing products. Sure enough, cyclopentasiloxane was the fourth on the ingredient list. This ingredient is found in foundations and primers to add smoothness to skin and fill in pores. Because of this, I consider Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin mist to be a skincare/cosmetic hybrid. I prefer to confine use to daytime when I'm wearing foundation already. I can spray before or after foundation to help with hydration. This will probably come in handy during the dryer winter months.
The Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask is meant to provide intense hydration and cooling to the face. Extracts from algae, Camellia flower, ginseng, and royal jelly treat your skin. The mask is a coconut-derived gel structure that provides direct contact to the skin. This is thought to provide better delivery of the serum's ingredients into the skin. After fifteen minutes, the mask can be peeled off and the remaining serum should be massaged into the skin and followed by Tatcha Moisture Rich Silk Cream (review and photos here) to retain the moisture. Those who enjoy sheet masks might be interested in this gel alternative.
The Tatcha Water collection is a nice supplemental selection of hydrating treatments to the Tatcha skincare routine. The Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($48 for 1.35fl.oz.) and Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask ($95 for 4 masks) can be found at Tatcha online or Barney's. Thanks for reading!
