Tatcha The Deep Cleanse got my attention right after I first checked out the brand because of its well-known Silk Canvas primer. I really wanted to try Tatcha products and before I would invest my money, I started off with buying a gift set from Sephora so I could try mini Tatcha products. In today’s post, we’re going to talk about Tatcha the Deep Cleanse.
Before I actually bought my Tatcha products, I’ve heard so many positive reviews about the brand and the products. Their most-loved product is for sure their Silk Canvas primer, which I sadly haven’t tried yet.
I decided to try the brand and start off by ordering a mini gift set to see if I would like the products. So I ordered a set from Sephora (this was an exclusive Holiday set and isn’t available anymore, Sephora does sell other sets) which included Tatcha The Deep Cleanse and Tatcha The Water Cream.
The reason why I started off with this set, is because Tatcha isn’t a very affordable brand and I didn’t want to buy expensive products to later find out that I don’t like them or that they don’t work for my skin.
I have been testing out both products for a while now, but in today’s review, I’m focusing on Tatcha The Deep Cleanse. Let’s first start off with some background information.
“After a decade of working for large corporations, Victoria Tsai yearned for simplicity and authenticity in her life. Suffering from acute dermatitis and developing a keen awareness of the importance of ingredients on the skin, she began traveling East in search of a more evolved, holistic approach to beauty. On a trip to Kyoto, she discovered a world of pure beauty, craftsmanship and heritage. An encounter with a modern-day geisha changed her life.
Victoria learned classical Japanese beauty secrets passed down by generations that took a different approach to skincare – that less is more. This skin care philosophy and time-tested ingredients were captured in an ancient text widely considered to be the oldest beauty book written in Japan, and perhaps the first such work of its kind. Within its three delicate, thread-bound volumes are seven chapters devoted to beauty and elegance in both appearance and spirit. This special guide informs and inspires the Tatcha collection.
Today, Tatcha works with scientists in Japan and the U.S., to create each formula from scratch, advancing time-honored beauty practices for fast-paced, modern life. The foundation is Hadasei-3™, a trinity of anti-aging superfoods born from the Japanese diet, and the basis for the original geisha beauty rituals: green tea, rice and algae. Every ingredient is carefully selected and minimally manipulated to be gentle and safe with maximum effectiveness.
Victoria splits her time between Japan and San Francisco, rooting Tatcha in a marriage of Kyoto craftsmanship and wellness philosophies with California natural ease. Believing that beauty begins in the heart and the mind, Tatcha’s philanthropic model funds girls’ education in partnership with Room to Read with every skincare purchase, helping to nurture the beautiful minds of incredible girls in Asia and Africa. In 2017, Tatcha celebrated the funding of one million days of school, which goes far beyond textbooks and classrooms—each day includes life skills coaching, mentorship, and the tools needed to enable a brighter future.”
Tatcha is a cruelty-free brand. Also, some of their products are vegan too. The ingredients of their products are natural, you can check them out here, and some of their products are oil-free as well.
Tatcha The Deep Cleanse
I have to admit that I really had to get used to the smell. At first, I really didn’t like it. Now I have been using the product, I got used to it and I’m okay with it now. However, I don’t think I’ll ever really like the smell.
The top of the packaging has a gap where the product comes out. I feel like this isn’t easy to use. I get none of the product out or way too much. There’s like no in between. I’d have preferred a pump or something else to make sure I don’t end up wasting product.
Even though the packaging and the smell aren’t my favorites, I actually really like the product itself. It’s a gel cleanser with exfoliant but is still very gentle for the face.
This cleanser truly makes my skin feel clean but not to the point where it’s feeling dry. Certainly not, it makes my skin feel super soft and hydrated. I love using this product and I think it’s one of my favorites at the moment. If Tatcha The Deep Cleanse was as foaming as the Kylie Skin Face Wash, then it would be 110% perfect.
It should tighten pores and smooth skin texture but I find it hard to notice this though. I have never been good at noticing pores, let alone a change in my pores or skin texture. I kinda feel like it does smooth my skin texture but as I already said, I’m bad in noticing a change in this so I’m not 100% sure.
I love how this cleanser is oil-free, non-comedogenic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, dermatologist tested, cruelty-free and formulated without Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, urea, DEA, TEA or phthalates.
My skin reacts really well to this cleanser. It feels good, hydrated, clean, not tight or irritated and overall so soft. Once this mini is empty, I’m definitely going to repurchase a normal-sized Tatcha The Deep Cleanse!
