Watering the Skin with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist

The Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist is the second piece in their water collection (for my review of the mask, see here). Before using this, I held the opinion that all mists are created equal. Sure, some have scents, but they seem to perform the same on the skin – fun at first squirt but tingling dryness later. I've tried cult classics like Evian and Shu Uemura and (relative) beginners like Amorepacific and have never went beyond the first couple of spritzes. They just don't do anything for me. In fact - and I hate to admit this because it seems like such a waste - sometimes I use my Evian spray to wet my hands.

The Dewy Skin Mist smells strongly of ginseng (to me, that's a draw) and my favorite use for it is as an extra nourishing base before I put on my face makeup. Sometimes I also do a couple of spritzes before I apply the Moisture Rich Silk Cream. I've used it on a couple of my friends and both asked to examine it immediately after. I know there's alcohol listed in the ingredients, but it doesn't dry out my skin when used, as opposed to other mists I've tried. That said, mists are not a substitute for moisturizers, especially in the winter months.

Now, for disclosure's sake I need to tell you that Tatcha sent me a bottle for review, but if you read my first feature on them, I mentioned near the end that I purchased one before I had any contact with them. I'm secretly glad I now have another because I have less than half of my current bottle left. On a side note, I'm so proud that I'm making progress in finishing my products!

Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist retails for $48 and is available online at Tatcha and Barney's.

  1. That looks really nice! I'm a sucker for purple packaging as well. I agree that the other mists I've tried (some of the same ones you listed) don't do much of anything and even seem to make me more dry. Thanks for the review - and what a beautiful picture under the bottle. *dreams*

  2. I have dry, mature skin and absolutely love this mist. Most mists are basically fragrant water. Although they work to set makeup and can be cooling and refreshing on a hot day, ultimately they'll dry out sensitive skin--not Tatcha's. One glance at the ingredient list and it is obviously that what you're actually getting is a light-weight mist on moisturizer. It is no substitute for your regular moisturizer, but it is excellent at boosting or renewing moisture which keeps the skin feeling comfortable and soothed. Whenever the Santa Ana winds blow through LA, I carry this with me. Those dry desert winds can suck the life out of skin, but Tatch's mist helps keep my skin from feeling tight or becoming chapped. It is a bit on the pricy side, but then again you're not buying a bottle of water. You're buying a light treatment product. Well done, Tatcha!
