We’ve been good all year long, which means we deserve to celebrate the best way we know how: shopping for a shipment of new beauty products. Of course, holiday shopping comes with a hefty side of savings courtesy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday — but that doesn’t mean we can start the fun even earlier.
Luckily, Tatcha agrees with us. The beloved Japanese-inspired beauty brand is giving Allure readers an exclusive early access code (ALLURE) to shop the sitewide sale early. That’s right: between November 14 at 12:01 a.m PT and November 21 at 12:01 a.m. PT, pop in ALLURE at checkout and you’ll snag 25 percent off everything on tatcha.com — no exclusions, not even holiday gift sets. So go ahead and cross a few friends off of that long shopping list.
We’re eyeing the Dewy Skin Cream, which is perfect for soothing dry winter skin and picking up our fifth bottle of the Essence, a weightless hydrator that will make your skin-care routine feel 50 times fancier (and more effective).
Time to check off some of the friends and family on your extensive holiday shopping list — or indulge in some self-care goodies for yourself. To help you out, we rounded up a few of our favorites — and shouted out some Allure Best of Beauty and Readers’ Choice Award winners — so you know exactly what you should be adding to your cart. (And for those of you looking ahead, the entire savings extravaganza ends on December 1 at 11:59 p.m. PT.)
Best Tatcha Skin-Care Gift Sets on Sale
Tatcha Ritual for Smooth Skin
If you know your friend’s skin type, first off, kudos to you. And if it happens to err on the dry side, investing in Tatcha’s Plump & Dewy Trio might just be your smartest move this holiday gifting season. The Rice Wash is a creamy formula that uses Japanese rice powder as its main mode of exfoliation, so it’s super gentle and leave skin feeling clean, but not stripped. From there, the Dewy Serum and Dewy Skin Cream work in tandem — or, well, one after another — to boost hydration to “glass skin” levels.
Ensure their skin stays baby-soft with the Ritual for Smooth Skin. The key lies in The Rich Polish: Classic, which is a powder exfoliant that’s activated by water and gently polishes skin via Japanese rice bran and silk protein. This 4-step ritual also includes the Camellia Cleansing Oil, The Essence, and The Water Cream to complete the well-rounded routine.
Best Tatcha Cleansers on Sale
Tatcha The Rice Polish Classic
Meghan Markle previously told Allure that she adores The Rice Polish Classic — that’s it, that’s the pitch. The Duchess of Sussex marveled at how the cleanser foams up effortlessly, leaving her complexion ever so gently exfoliated. The innovative formula starts as a powder and transforms into a luxurious foam once you add water. Rice bran and papaya enzymes gently polish away dirt, oil, and makeup to reveal glowing skin, while hydrating green tea and algae replenish your barrier.
Sure, we’re biased toward The Deep Cleanse, but it’s for good reason. It has won not one, but two Allure Best of Beauty Awards. This gel-based formula is made with ingredients native to Japan: the fibrous luffa fruit deep-cleans, wild rose smoothes skin, and leopard lily sops up excess sebum for a clean, satiny finish we clearly can’t get enough of. If you have combination and oily skin, this might be your new go-to cleanser.
Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
The Camellia Cleansing Oil is an ideal first step for all of you double-cleansing fans. Japanese camellia oil melts away the most stubborn of waterproof eye makeup with such ease that you might permanently part ways with your makeup wipes. As always, Tatcha’s proprietary complex of double-fermented green tea, rice, and algae keeps skin plump and hydrated.
We may never forget the adorable Animal Crossing promotion that accompanied The Rice Wash‘s launch. But the product alone — a non-stripping cream cleanser — has keeper-worthy status. Japanese rice powder and microcrystalline cellulose ensure your skin is completely rid of makeup, sunscreen, and dead cell buildup, while hyaluronic acid and Okinawa algae soften and boost moisture levels.
Best Tatcha Essences and Serums on Sale
Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum
The fragrance-free Violet-C Brightening Serum is formulated with two types of vitamin C stabilized by antioxidant-rich Japanese beautyberry. Mild AHAs derived from seven fruit extracts (i.e. grapefruit, orange, and jujube) join the party and remove dead cell buildup to reveal softer, more radiant skin. And then there’s Japanese angelica root, which fades the appearance of hyperpigmentation. This might just be the star of your nighttime routine.
The Essence won a 2020 Allure Best of Beauty Award, so it has our (very passionate) stamp of approval — our reviewer even said that it instantly plumped up her tired, stressed skin. Apart from the usual suspects of moisture-boosting green tea, rice, algae, and glycerin, it contains a secret weapon: yeast. That’s right, its fermentation process naturally produces lactic acid (a type of alpha hydroxy acid or AHA), which speeds up skin cell turnover for baby-soft skin.
Best Tatcha Masks on Sale
Tatcha Limited Edition Kissu Lip Mask
Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask
Tatcha’s Limited Edition Kissu Lip Mask comes in a festive jar and hue inspired by the red camellia flower. Treat your cracked lips to this moisture-boosting and line-smoothing treatment spiked with squalane and Japanese peach extract.
You’ll come for the creamy, lavender formula and stay for the major brightening benefits. Similar to the Violet-C Serum, the Violet-C Radiance Mask also contains Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and 10 percent AHAs to gently but effectively resurface skin. Apply a generous layer, treat yourself to a warm cup of tea for 15 to 20 minutes, and rinse off. Dullness, your time is up.
Best Tatcha Moisturizers on Sale
Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream
Counting Selena Gomez amongst its fans, the Dewy Skin Cream plumps dry skin with long-lasting hydration via a concoction of Japanese purple rice, an Okinawa algae blend, and hyaluronic acid. It also sits beautifully underneath makeup and makes your foundation glide on like a dream.
The Water Cream is one of our beloved Readers’ Choice Award winners, which proves that the splurge is absolutely worth it. It’s also one of the best moisturizers for oily skin on the market — case in point, our reviewer said the cooling, instantly absorbing formula seriously hydrates without clogging pores and helps control excess oil production.
Best Tatcha Body-Care Treatments on Sale
Tatcha Hinoki Body Care Trio
Eager to try some of Tatcha’s latest and greatest? Give the Hinoki Body Care Trio a whirl, which includes the Hinoki Body Wash, Hinoki Body Milk, and Hinoki Body Oil. Together, this trio gently cleanses and exfoliates and locks in moisture. “What stood out to me with this product is that, unlike other body oils on the market, [Hinoki Body Oil] wasn’t greasy or slippery,” senior commerce writer Angela Trakoshis said in her review. “The oil sat on my skin comfortably and gave a healthy glow to my body.”
Dry, overwashed hands are simply no match for the Indigo Soothing Hand Cream. Its gorgeous, sky-blue formula instantly melts into skin, leaving behind soft, moisturized hands. Silk extracts, squalane, and glycerin keep moisture locked in for hours, while indigo and oatmeal mitigate redness and irritation.
Best Tatcha Makeup on Sale
You can’t go wrong with any of the five Silk Lipstick shades, but Kyoto Red will be especially on-point for any holiday gatherings. Inspired by a geisha’s signature red, it imparts a bold, matte finish that doesn’t suck the moisture out of your lips. That’s because the lipstick is infused with hydrating silk and beautyberry extracts to ensure your pout stays soft all day long. The packaging and bullet itself look like works of art — earning it a well-deserved, front-row spot on your vanity.
Make no mistake: The Silk Canvas is unlike your typical makeup primer. This balm-like multitasker has just as many skin-care benefits as it does for makeup. Silk extract and powder visibly smooth uneven texture and blur the appearance of pores — enhancing the longevity of your foundation or BB cream. Pink and gold pearl add luminosity, while the brand’s signature blend of green tea, rice, and algae delivers hydration as always. In other words, this compact really pulls its weight.
All we have to say is that the hype around Tatcha is very, very real and we hope our early access code (ALLURE) convinces you to add a few dew-enhancing products to your skin-care rotation. Shop the sale at tatcha.com between now and December 1 to save 25 percent on everything.
