[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad/priorad] Glad to see that oily skin is being properly targeted with this new cleanser from Tatcha. I’ve used it on my own skin which isn’t oily and would do so again for a more brightening cleanse because it’s very good at leaving skin feeling and looking freshened and perky.
I was given this stone at a Tatcha event and I think its one of my favourite ‘gifts’ ever – it’s so simple and completely perfect with all its natural imperfections. It’s lumpy and bumpy but completely beautiful. Tatcha The Deep Cleanse contains luffa fruit as a mild exfoliant and uses silk derived amino acids so you get a very gentle and softening cleanse. The thing about both The Deep Cleanse and The Rice Wash is that they have a certain amount of ‘tack’ to them that feels they are really working at your skin to pull away grime and oil.
It’s a very different cleansing experience to oils or balms. The Deep Cleanse foams (softly) when water comes into the equation but I worked it on damp skin around my nose without foaming first and added a bit more water to get the foam for the rest of my face. You’ll find that the luffa particles are apparent and look like you’ve exfoliated away a load of skin cells but you haven’t – what you’ll end up with is the most incredibly soft skin post cleanse. It’s quite remarkable. With The Rice Wash you get a slight residue feeling and I’d say don’t be tempted to rinse and rinse – just add your moisturiser as normal and the sensation completely disappears. I’ve been using The Rice Wash for several months on and off and it feels like a ‘treat’ cleanse rather than a daily necessity.
For myself, I’m ignoring the ‘oily’ skin label – the end feel is so wonderful I’m not going to deprive myself of it and I don’t find it stripping or harsh at all – the opposite, in fact. I’ve just spotted that there is an offer for a ‘Lucky Bag’ with a £100 spend which means you will get up to £200 worth of extra product (not specified). That spend is quite easily done with this brand because it’s premium prices but it might be worth banding with a buddy to reach the price and share out the goodies afterwards. The Deep Cleanse is £41 HERE (and is packaged differently on the and Rice Wash is also £41 HERE. I’m already a fan of this brand – especially the Rice Powder, £60 HERE and the Kissu Lip Balm, £25 HERE which is just a joy to use. To claim your Lucky Bag, use code LUCKY23.

I’m so intrigued by Tatcha- have seen loads on them recently and your review (plus the prospect of getting some extra goodies!) tipped me over the edge. I’ve just ordered the The Dewy Skin Cream, The Rice Wash, The Silk Peony Eye Cream, The Kissu Lip Mask, and Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm. Fingers crossed I like them all! Any favourites from that list, other than the kissu lip mask?
Dewy Skin and Rice Wash are lovely as well – with the rice wash it can feel like there is still a bit of residue but it’s got great cleansing powers so don’t over rinse your skin. As soon as you put moisturiser on afterwards that feel disappear. I think you’ve made great choices – I haven’t used the eye cream. I am intrigued by this brand too – always want to know what they’re doing next.
Thank you for the pro tip! I’ll be careful not to over-rinse because my skin can be pretty sensitive. Here’s hoping for some skincare/makeup hybrid from them next…some tinted lip oils or balms would be lovely!
In the US they do limited edition tints – fingers crossed for one here 🙂
I love Tatcha – one of my favourite brands. The Deep Cleanse is a staple of my routine!
Have yet to come across anything I didn’t like…
