Told you we’re doing a product review this weekend!
You already know how much I love Tatcha’s lipstick. Well, I started trying more of their products, and Y’ALL. Everything they make is amazing. I’m here to review one product, their skin mist, but trust and believe, everything else I got in that order, including all the samples, was fantastic.
I’d been curious about skin mists for a while, and of course I wanted to try Tatcha’s new one, because I’m a giant fangirl of theirs. I ordered it, along with a silk face cloth for exfoliating, and I chose my three free samples (cleansing oil, body lotion, and gel moisturizer, if you were wondering). It shipped quickly, as their products do, and arrived at my house like a present from Santa. If Santa was really interested in my skincare routine, I guess.
Despite my curiosity, I was a little hesitant that my oily skin would just get oilier if I used a spray moisturizer, but following @Tatcha on Snapchat and watching the company owner, Vicki Tsai, using it on her oily skin put my mind at ease. I’ve got some air travel coming up, so I was interested in finding a good on-the-go moisturizer to combat that nasty drying effect plane air has.
Turns out, I had no reason to worry, because the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist delivers the goods. It’s a very light mist, and each spray only puts out a little bit. You can choose how much you’re putting on by just spraying a few more times for more moisture. It leaves a little bit of non-oily hydration on your skin, and brings back your dewy early-morning glow whenever you need a pick-me-up. If you get oily sometimes (hi, fellow oily friend), you can use some blotting paper before you mist, replacing the sticky skin oil with lighter, less-acne-causing moisture. According to Vicki, all of this can be done with makeup on, and it won’t disturb any of it. I haven’t tried it yet due to my deficiency of fucks to give about putting on makeup in the morning, but at some point I will, and I’ll let you know!
The packaging for the skin mist is, like all Tatcha products, absolutely gorgeous and of high quality. The bottle itself is thick glass, to keep the liquid inside stable, and it’s got a heavy lid that fits well, so it’s perfect for carrying in your purse or backpack. I’ve been carrying it daily for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve had no issues with the bottle leaking or the lid coming off. Bonus: it’s small enough that I can take it on a plane! Bye-bye, Plane Face.
At $48, this skin mist is more spendy than others I’ve found on places like Peach and Lily, but I went with it for two reasons: I wanted to support a company I love; and since my skin isn’t overly prone to dryness, this is something that will last me a good long while, so I might as well get the exact product I wanted. Better to have one really good product, than a box full of cheaper products that don’t work as well or consistently.
So if you’re looking for a good-quality mist that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and happy throughout a long day (or long plane flight), there are many options out there, but Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist is the first one I went for, and I’m glad I did. Once again, their products, packaging, and service impressed and delighted me.
