[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] This new arrival turned out to be my blessing in disguise yesterday after my shenanigans with e.l.f. camo blush. I had Tatcha The Matcha Cleanse (and yes, that is rolling off the tongue very nicely indeed) waiting to test and because I had to strip off, there and then, some very powerfully pigmented make up, I used it.

Tatcha The Matcha Cleanse Review

This is formulated for oil prone skin but it’s purifying, cleansing and priming for any skin types because it’s not in the least bit drying. You might find that the addition level of oil control will help to keep your make up adhering for longer. If you don’t have oil prone skin, you have more cleansing options but I’d still easily recommend this – not only did it cut through that blush perfectly, leaving no trace, but my skin actually felt much softer for it. You’ll find Japanese coix seed and willow bark, Japanese mugwort which acts like ceramides to support the skin barrier, and of course, its namesake, matcha.

Tatcha The Matcha Cleanse Review

I’m a big fan of Tatcha cleansers and this one doesn’t disappoint. In fact, because of how it left my skin feeling after washing off – fresh and softer – I’m keeping it on hand in the kitchen (where I do my videos) as my go-to cleanser. Traditionally, my expectation of oil busting cleansers are that they’ll be drying or at the very least, skin glow snuffing and this is neither. It’s soap and fragrance free and there are two sizes – 50ml is £19 HERE.


I also noticed a couple of very good value offers – this one, featuring a 50ml Deep Cleanse and 10ml Water Cream has a value of £41 but is £28 HERE. It’s indicated for dry and/or mature skin. I’m pleased to see these entry point offers from Tatcha – it’s a luxury brand but it’s one of the few that I have a heart for because nothing, not one single product, has been disappointing or ineffective.
