Delivery Options:
TATCHA's The Essence is a daily antiaging essential designed to prep the skin with hydration. And with this Auto-Delivery plan, a new shipment arrives approximately every 90 days for two years.

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 Auto-Delivery is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from All good till bottle cracked I have been using this to nearly the end of the bottle. Honestly, I can't tell what effect this product particularly is adding because I've used the entire ritual set together since purchasing. I love the entire ritual though! I do enjoy using the essence - it's a different way of applying a product than I've done before, to pat it onto my face from my palms. I'm likely to repurchase, although I may let it run out first to see if there's any difference in my skin when I don't use it. Unfortunately the travel size bottle cracked during travel, which hastened the running out process. I was super bummed to lose product that way, as it is quite pricy. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Well sometimes. I get confused when I read reviews because they’re so completely opposite spectrums of products. But I’m glad I did try this and I got it on easy pay it does seem to hydrate my skin I’m 52 years old and I’ve noticed a difference so for right now I’m keeping it and will be re-ordering it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing This is literally like a drink of water for your face. It’s so hydrating and now a necessary step for me after seeing and feeling the results. I’ve used it for about half a year, and after cleansing, this just refreshes, plumps, hydrates, and, to me, has a cooling feel on my sensitive skin. Perfect preparation before my last step... The Silk Cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Makes a Difference This stuff feels like water but somehow is so refreshing. I have noticed a difference in my skin texture around my smile lines which is my problem area. Highly highly recommend it. I stopped using several other products so I could keep this in my budget and it is well worth it. It's the only tatcha product I use. Between this and argan milk and argan oil, my skin looks amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This would be awesome if it was in a spray bottle. You either get too much or not enough product when using the current packaging. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing somehow Just seems like water but as soon as it touches my skin it's as if my skin says "ahhhhhhh". Feels instantly soothing and a tiny bit cooling. All I know is that it just feels good on my skin, my skin drinks it up, and my skin has never looked better. Before using this and other Tatcha (and some Korean products), I had adult acne with mild bumps, 1-3 cystic pimples on my chin a month that left scars, and lots of acne scars/hyperpigmentation on my chin and cheeks. i haven't had a cyst in 3 months (cross fingers) and my skin is so much more clear. I believe completely that this essence contributed a lot to that and I will continue to use this religiously. I do prefer this to the SK-II essence that always smelled like saliva to me, while this essence smells like Japanese rice wine (sake) which I love. Anyways, long review but get this for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. I really love Essence and use it every day. I was a little hesitant to order because it's a little pricey, but I trust Vicky and her Tatcha products. I am disappointed in the way it comes out from the bottle. Even after watching videos, I seem to be wasting a lot of product. Could you have it dispense as a mist or measured amount in the future? I doubt that I would reorder this product even though I really like it unless it is more economical to dispense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This product is quite effective in moisturizing...if you wonder if it truly works try using it with no other product on top of it. Some mornings I’m in a hurry so just patting some of this on my face and neck keeps my skin moisturized until I can wash up and do the whole routine. So under the serum and moisturizer I know it’s doing it’s job. And love the no fragrance. You can feel it’s got a little substance to it other than feeling like straight water.
