Tatcha Skincare Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum Review + Giveaway ($90+) (Closed)

Posted by in Giveaways & Discount Codes, Green Beauty, Reviews, Skin Serums | 8 comments












I had the pleasure of testing the newly developed Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum by Tatcha Skincare ($90 for 30ml/1 fl oz.), which is comprised of hyaluronic acid to aid in filling fine lines and wrinkles



But what is Hyaluronic Acid?!



HA can be found in the body and almost half our HA is located in the collagen of skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. In fact, no other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles.



This mask was created solely for the purpose to provide deep hydration. According to the Tatcha founder Vicky, she was inspired to create this particular serum after makeup artist Daniel Martin told her that he loved using the Deep Hydration Lifting Mask on models’ faces before painting them, but needed something that worked quicker. Vicky essentially bottled the deeply hydrating spa-in-a-sheet mask and created this serum. 


In addition to firming and plumping effects, this serum contains crushed 23-karat gold that brightens the skin ever so slightly. The soothing scent features hints of green tea.



So what’s the verdict on this highly coveted product?! Well, … you’ll just have to watch the video review below!





And if you haven’t heard of Tatcha Skincare, today is your lucky day, …meet one of my favorite natural skincare companies!!

Enduring beauty is a culmination of the wisdom of centuries. Having heard that many of the world’s greatest beauty secrets originated with geisha, we explored scientific journals, unearthed historical archives and studied the ageless beauty rituals of the iconic geisha to shed light on a highly evolved approach to beauty.



Our mission is to share with a new generation the inspired approach to a beautiful life that we discover on our journeys East.











Founder Victoria Tsai has been a lifelong seeker of beauty. Her passion for skincare began at an early age when Victoria’s mother shared traditional Asian herbal skincare treatments, which they sold in her family’s beauty boutique. Victoria’s love of discovery has since led her to become a sought-after expert in the field, developing products and brand strategies for the world’s largest beauty companies.


Searching for a new approach to beauty, Victoria began traveling to Asia where a chance encounter in Kyoto with a modern-day geisha changed her course. For over 300 years, Japan’s geisha have been held in awe for their enduring wisdom and breathtakingly beautiful, porcelain skin. Perfected through centuries of timeless rituals, it is widely believed their beauty secrets have been passed down from one generation to the next by word of mouth alone. As she began to immerse herself in Japan’s culture, Victoria unearthed a 200-year-old beauty manuscript.


On its ancient pages, she rediscovered the geisha’s coveted daily regimen. Moved and inspired, Victoria founded TATCHA as a way to share these timeless secrets with the modern world.


Traveling back to the City of 2000 Temples (Kyoto), TATCHA works closely with teams of scientists, scholars and geisha themselves to decipher the rituals and ingredients from the sacred beauty text. TATCHA’s formulas pay homage to the icon of Eastern beauty and the brand’s own storied heritage. Now the secrets of the geisha live on through a proprietary process involving the most precious Green Teas, Okinawa Red Algae, Rice Bran and other time-tested ingredients.









TATCHA recreates the geisha’s minimalist beauty regime with fresh preparations of concentrated bioactive materials, accessing their active ingredients through a proprietary extraction process of Green Tea, Okinawa Red Algae and Rice Bran.


Together, these time-tested ingredients enhance the skin’s natural beauty, promote nourishing moisturization and help reduce the signs of premature aging for truly pure, polished, radiant and supple looking skin.
