I have heard nothing but praise for the company Tatcha for as long as I can remember. This is the first product I’ve tried of theirs and am completely blown away by the quality. I’ve been using the Pore Perfecting Water Gel since June and am pretty much obsessed.
What is it? ::: A lightweight illuminating water-gel moisturizer that offers oil-balancing hydration. It’s non-irritating, non-sensitizing and dermatologist tested.
What makes it different? ::: It’s formulated with the perfect balance of oil and water to keep those with oily/combination skin balanced and hydrated. It’s a powerful combination of Japanese Wild Rose, Leopard Lily and Dokudami extracts to balance and clarify skin, and an added bonus of 23k gold dust to create a warm luminous glow. It really is the perfect formula.
It’s a really light, watery texture that melts right into your skin upon application. A little goes a long way with this and the consistency makes it easy to evenly distribute all throughout your skin. I find this way more beneficial for my combination/oily skin than any lotion or face cream that I’ve tried in a while. I use this in the morning after washing my face, it packs my skin with just enough moisture but leaves a smooth canvas ready for makeup. Since using this, I noticed my foundation seems to last longer and doesn’t melt off even on these brutal 90+ degree days.
It’s a little pricey, but I highly recommend this if you have oily skin and have tried literally every product out there and have yet to see results. It really makes my skin look healthy & glowing and genuinely feel like wearing this has benefitted my skin. This is one of my favorite finds this summer!
