TATCHA's The Essence is a daily antiaging essential designed to prep the skin with hydration.

The Essence softens the appearance of dry fine lines and wrinkles for smooth-looking skin. It contains Hadasei-3 Complex, which is carefully crafted by combining and fermenting Japanese green tea, algae, and rice. In one test, after five minutes of use, The Essence helped improve skin moisturization on average of 42% more than moisturizer alone.

How do I use it: After cleansing and before any other skin care, splash a palmful of The Essence into your hand, and press gently into the skin on your face and neck. Use daily, morning and night.

TATCHA The Essence Plumping Skin Softener is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Results I am so impressed with this product. For the very first time in my life, I got compliments on how nice my complexion looked after using this. I use this and the Tatcha 4 piece kit. I didn't think an essence would make such a difference but it really, really does!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I like the concept of an essence and feel as if this product does provide hydration after cleansing and does a nice job of prepping skin for serums. However I feel the same results can be achieved by applying your serums to a slightly damp face from either water or a diluted moisturizer. I cancelled auto delivery because I simply can’t justify the cost of this product. The amount of product will last a long while but not enough visible benefits to reorder at this price. When my bottle is empty I am thinking about trying It cosmetics miracle water as an alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Supple Skin I just tried Tatcha for the first time, I purchased The Essence and The Cleansing Oil, my skin feels amazing. It feels clean but not tight, The Essence feels so good on my skin and it absorbs instantly. I have those dreaded hot flashes and did not feel like it was sliding off my skin during them. I wish more skin care lines would consider us "hot flashers" when making new formulas. I am excited to try more from the Tatcha line!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have a few other Tatcha products that I absolutely love! However, this product left my normal to oily skin incredibly dry, itchy and temporarily increased my very fine lines. I could taste the product in my mouth within a few minutes of gently patting the product into my skin. I am guessing it was via my pores since I did not use it near my eyes, nose or mouth. Lest, I returned the product and would love to find another product on the market that professes similar claims. Perhaps, for sensitive skin (even though my skin is not). I must agree with others... it would be great in a fine mist rather then the expensive amount of product waste due to it's current bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It. I have the Camllia oil and the face scrub from Tatcha which I both love. They are gentle to my skin and the oil takes out all the make up when I used it at night, I recently purchased this plumping skin softener without any great expectation. I was reading the reviews and thought I'd give it a try because no matter what moisturizer I used my skin remains very dry. I have been using this Essence Plumping Skin Softener for more than a week now and I am very happy with the result. My skin is not dry any more and really does feel soft and firm. I don't want to run out of this product so I ordered another one. This product might be expensive but it works so why not.
