Tatcha Ritual Discovery Kit

TATCHA is among my favorite skincare brands that I have ever tried.  I have actually reviewed The Ritual Discovery Kit previously, but that was way back when the brand was brand new on the scene.  They have revamped their packaging and improved upon their already fantastic packaging.  IF you are looking for a fabulous gift for the gal that has everything, this is it.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

This four step kit alone saved my skin a couple years ago and really sparked my interest in investing in good skincare.  I originally started using this brand through this discovery kit and by the time I was finished with the first bottles my face had transformed into something that I could truly be proud of, not an acne-ridden mess that it once was.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

Let me take you through the products included…

PURE | One Step Camelia Cleansing Oil

This is THE BEST CLEANSING OIL ON EARTH.  Yes, I just shouted it to the mountain tops.  I have tried several different cleansing oils and this one is by far my favorite.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

POLISHED | Classic Rice Enzyme Powder

I have grown fond of rice powders.  In the original kit there were small packets that I found to be cumbersome in my shower so I am extremely happy to see that there is now a small jar with a sifter.  This is actually going to be my first go with TATCHA’s rice powder.  But I have a hunch that I will fall in love.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

RADIANT | Deep Brightening Serum

This stuff is the bee’s knees.  I have gone through several bottles of this serum.  I can say that this serum is what really deepened my love for serums as a whole.  I can’t help but gush over it.  I love the scent, I love the way my skin feels after application, and most importantly it really plays well with my oily skin.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

SUPPLE | Moisture Rich Silk Cream

This moisturizer is rather rich for me.  I tend to use it only during my night time routine.  I think that it is extremely well suited for those with dry skin.  I have actually read several positive reviews on it, it just isn’t for me personally.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

This next item isn’t included in the kit, but would make a perfect addition to the regime.  I would absolutely recommend it as a gift on its own and especially in addition to this set.

LUMINOUS | Dewy Skin Mist

This is a perfect refresher.  I have actually even sprayed it on my face prior to makeup application.  During the summer months this was always in my bag.

Tatcha The Ritual Discovery Kit

If you can’t feel my love for the brand through my words then let me spell it out for you.  I love TATCHA The Ritual Discovery Kit.  It is the perfect way to gauge if the regime works for you without chucking out the big bucks all at once.  You can find this set on their website, QVC, Amazon.com, and anywhere else that carries the brand.

Are you one of those people that have semi-long hair and don’t always know what to do with it?  I don’t want to cut it because long hair is more versatile, but I also want to get it off my neck.  I do love a good sock bun or top knot, but sometimes I want…
