Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
As far as I can tell, there's only one skincare product you need if you're after dewy, healthy-looking skin this spring/summer (and really, all year round) — Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. Quite the mouthful (try saying that five times fast!), but so incredible that I couldn't wait to share it with you guys. Many of you will have probably heard of this product, or even tried it for yourselves (you go, Glen Coco), but for those who haven't, this post is for you — consider it your skincare PSA for the week. And if there's one thing I take seriously, it's skincare

Here's the 411 on this product: It's made in Japan using the red algae harvested in Okinawa that's known for its moisture-retaining qualities. It's also formulated with squalane (a naturally-occurring lipid found in both plants and animals that has incredible moisturizing properties), rice bran oil and green tea extracts to fight free radicals, and although it's a mist that can be applied on top of makeup to set it and create a dewy finish, it's really more of an anti-aging liquid moisturizer that plumps the skin and adds instant luminosity. No exaggeration, but I don't know how I lived without this stuff before. I like to spritz it on after cleansing, then apply a light layer throughout the day to help lock in moisture — but a word of caution to my combination/oily skinned friends; go light on this stuff because it's pretty powerful in the dew department. I have to avoid my forehead during midday applications, otherwise, well, let's just say I look a little "too luminous."

Lastly, I think it's fun to note the brand's story; apparently Tatcha came across an 200-year-old manuscript outlying the beauty secrets and regimes of Japan's geishas, whose secrets for achieving beautiful, porcelain-looking skin were passed down from generation to generation for over 300 years. Evidently their proprietary process was created with those Eastern beauty secrets in mind, and through consultation with scientists, scholars and geishas alike. Think geisha skin in a bottle. How true all that is I don't know, but I like the idea of it all the same... xx
