We’ve been singing the praises of Tatcha blotting papers since we first swiped one across our oily forehead in 2009.
But founder Victoria Tsai proves her company is no one-hit wonder with the release of a full skin care line based on authentic Japanese beauty rituals.
To be clear, this is no Memoirs of a Geisha fantasy. Years of hard work, befriending Kyoto locals, and much sleuthing led Tsai to a 200-year-old text and a rare opportunity to meet with a real geisha girl (with skin so flawless, it brought the brand founder to tears).
Tsai enlisted scholars to translate the text and met with scientists who helped her formulate a base recipe of green tea, Okinawa red algae, and rice bran. The result: a skin care collection spanning camellia cleansing oil, exfoliating enzyme powders, licorice-rich brightening serum, and a silky moisturizer.
All sure to be chart toppers.
Available online at tatcha.com, $48-$150.
