It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Tatcha‘s philosophy and skincare products. I’ve previously reviewed their Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream, which is their basic moisturizer for all skin types. Today I’m sharing with you their Ritual Discovery Kit, which is a travel set/starter kit for those who are new to Tatcha and want to try their star products.
Housed in beautiful glass jars, included in the Kit are:
- PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (25mL – value of $8)
- POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder (14 x 1g one-time use packets – value of $15)
- RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum (10mL – value of $37)
- Your choice of SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream (10mL – for combination, oily or sensitive skin – value of $30) or AGELESS Enriching Renewal Cream (10mL – for dry skin – value of $37)
The One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (full size – $48 for 150mL) is created from a mix of rice bran oil and camellia oil, and also includes algae extract and green tea leaf extract for long-term skincare benefits while you cleanse. This oil is great for all skin types, as it melts off makeup, emulsifies completely and leaves skin feeling smooth and not stripped.
The Rice Enzyme Powder (full size – $65 for 60 grams) is available in three formulations for a classic cleanse, a deep cleanse, or gentle cleanse. My favourite type of exfoliant – the water-activated enzyme powder – exfoliates without being abrasive on the skin, instead relying on enzyme and gentle chemical exfoliants to eat away at the dead skin cells. My skin is left feeling super smooth and well cleansed, and also creates the perfect canvas for serums and moisturizers.
The Deep Brightening Serum (full size – $185 for 50mL) is formulated with rice extract, silk extract, licorice root extract, algae extract and green tea left extract. While I felt that the Deep Brightening Serum is lightly moisturizing, I didn’t notice any brightening effect. This one is a nice-to-have but not a must-have.
My Kit included the Enriching Renewal Cream (full size – $185 for 50mL), which is an intensive skin renewal cream that promotes anti-aging benefits and microcirulation in the skin. I have found another winner in Tatcha’s moisturizers! This product would be perfect for night-time intensive treatment while the Moisture Rich Silk Cream would be great for daytime use. The cream is very well refined and absorbs quickly in the skin. In the morning, I wake up with plump and healthy skin. Since I only have the travel sized version, I didn’t notice any long-term improvements to my skin.
The Ritual Discovery Kit is a great way to test out Tatcha’s star products at an introductory price. With a value of $90-97 but priced at $59, you don’t break the bank. This would also be a great gift idea, or a convenient travel skincare set. Recommend? Absolutely.
