The history of the TATCHA brand is steeped in tradition and rituals. The Japanese method of skin care involves ceremonies that focus on cleansing, massaging, nourishing, and protecting the skin via natural, time-tested botanicals and minerals. TATCHA Beauty prides itself on following the time honored ritual followed by the geisha. This ritual is suitable for all ethnicity’s and ages, but especially for those with combination skin seeking solutions for prevention and repair and older skin. The TATCHA line is ideal for women over 40!
In 2012 I discovered the TATCHA brand and nothing has made as significant a difference in my skin as TATCHA products. The Radiant Skin Brightening Serum (reviewed here) is nothing short of a miracle!
TATCHA recently introduced their Indigo Collection that consists of Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter, Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream and Indigo Soothing Renewal Treatment which all continue the Japanese tradition of smooth as silk skin of the Geisha. Today I’m reviewing the Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter, rich in anti-inflammatory Indigo and moisturizing liquid silk, it nourishes skin leaving it supple and restored.
Packaging is gorgeous and TATCHA pays attention to every detail. The body butter comes in a a woodgrain box and inside is another box with a lovely blue and purple botanical design complete with a gold ribbon.
The formula uses a concentrated botanical extract made from stems, leaves and petals of natural Japanese Indigo. Liquid silk and sqaulane protect and nourish skin. The natural blue shade may vary, but the efficacy remains the same.
TATCHA Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter ($48) is packaged in a large violet jar complete with a small spoon so as not keep the product sanitary. This body butter is deeply hydrating but remains lightweight and non-greasy on the skin. You can tell at once that this is a luxury product, the feel is silky and it absorbs well–no rubbing for hours. My legs get terribly dry during the winter and this has eliminated my dry, flaky skin. The scent is amazing yet not overpowering!
Bottom Line: a luxurious, deeply hydrating body cream that feels amazing and is highly effective!
