We all love Tatcha, don’t we? Luxury skincare that is as results-driven as it is sensorial, with lots of purple – what is not to love? I’ve been lucky to try lots of Tatcha products, and for me, the standouts have been the products that help with cleansing, as not only are they very effective, they are such a total joy to use – they feel like self-care and I look forward to using them; I’m speaking of the dreamy The Camellia Cleansing Oil (amazing for all makeup removal including eyes, leaves skin soooo soft without any residue) and the Classic The Rice Polish (I thought nothing could top it, then I received the PURPLE Gentle version – more on that soon!) so I extremely hopeful when I received the two newest additions to the Tatcha range of cleansers, The Rice Wash and The Deep Cleanse.
As mentioned, I love The Rice Polish so I assumed The Rice Wash would be my favourite of the duo, but I genuinely love them both! Having skin that needs a lot of hydration even though I’m breakout prone, I’m always wary of anything promising a deep cleanse as this usually means drying soaps, oil-stealing clays and basically anything that’ll strip your skin of everything, both good and bad, so I was extremely surprised by The Deep Cleanse, which is just so gentle and actually quite hydrating and soothing – obviously, this is Tatcha and they don’t do anything other than kind skincare, but I was still really caught off-guard by how lovely it is!
The Deep Cleanse contains non-scary scrubby bits that very gently exfoliate; nothing scratchy or unpleasant, and they wash off easily too. Skin feels so good afterwards and I genuinely don’t think there is a skin type out there that wouldn’t get on with this (not sure I’ve ever said that before?!) as the formula is just really gentle and a pleasure to use. It’s £41 here – link – and you get a decent 150ml.
The Rice Wash is very much like a creamy cleanser version of The Rice Polish, so if you’re a fan of the original Rice Polishes (and how could you not be) then you’ll definitely like this. The cream is quite thick and a tiny bit gritty, but that grit breaks down as you involve water (much like The Rice Polish) so you have a product that exfoliates without any scrubbing.
I can comfortably use this on my face and eyes as a second cleanse in the evening or a single cleanse in the morning and it washes off easily with no residue. Skin definitely feels plumper, smoother and cleaner after use, and whilst this is recommend for dry skin types, again, I think most skin types could use it because it’s so inoffensive and gentle. It’s £41 for 120ml here – link.
