Color me excited about the TATCHA Indigo collection! This collision between color and complexion is all about indigo, a plant prized in Eastern Medicine for its anti-inflammatory benefits. It's a welcome concept for those with atopic skin, like myself. I've been luxuriating with my own set of the Tatcha Indigo collection courtesy of Tatcha, and have my review to share with you today!
I've featured Tatcha here previously, however to recap, the luxury line combines traditional Asian beauty with modern technology to create an inspired skincare routine. The three pieces I have to share with you today are the TATCHA Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream, TATCHA Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter, and TATCHA Indigo Soothing Renewal Treatment.
Aesthetics are an important part of the TATCHA Indigo experience, as you can see from the pieces here! The lightly iridescent indigo and gold containers are housed within dark wood print boxes, inside which you'll find decorative paper drawers. All of the products have a lovely spa-like scent reminiscent of sweet rice and camellia. It's the same scent found in the rest of Tatcha's line, though I noticed the lightest touch of an extra plant-like scent as well (which I assume is from the indigo extract).
TATCHA Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream ($38 for 2 fl. oz.) is housed in a convenient squeeze tube. The design makes it easy to expel just the right amount (and you don't need much). The formula sinks in quickly and leaves just a light residue, which I find to be common to Tatcha product formulations in general. It strikes a really nice balance as hand creams go; it's moderately hydrating without being too evanescent. As someone who constantly washes her hands on the job, it's so nice to have on hand!
TATCHA Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter ($48 for 6.7 fl. oz.) is a moisturizing treatment for the body. (It's a wonderful idea, after all why should our complexions get all the pampering?) The one thing I do have to say however, is that the name is mildly misleading. The texture is quite light and almost whipped, not oily or buttery. That said, like a butter, a little does go a long way. Like the hand cream, it sinks in quickly and leaves a light protective residue, as is typical of Tatcha products.
Before I conclude, I should answer the question you may be most curious about! Does the Tatcha Indigo collection turn your skin blue? Yes, and no. Initially, you notice the slightest indigo tint as you smooth it on. However, it blends in and dissipates over time.... I have yet to turn into Smurfette despite covering myself in Tatcha Indigo from head to toe!
Overall, I'm delighted to have the TATCHA Indigo collection as a part of my skincare routine! As someone with sensitive skin, this is my favorite set of theirs to date. I adore the spa-like scent and am kind of tickled by the smurf-blue pigmentation as well. I'm hard pressed to recommend just one item; I'd say it depends on what you're looking for! I find the face serum to be most indulgent, the hand cream to be most practical, and the body cream to provide a wonderful whole-body experience.
