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 4.1 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product I received this product in a 3 piece kit that was a TSV. I gave it 4 stars because of the strand alone price. It is much more cost effective to buy it in a kit. The Softener is a bit thicker than water, but thinner than your average serum. It absorbs quickly into my skin leaving it feeling like I've just gotten a mega dose of hydration. I follow it with the Tatcha eye cream and facial moisturizer. My skin feels very plump and hydrated after using the Essence Plumping Skin Softener. It's a great product and works best for me followed with the facial moisturizer and eye cream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh... This product is doing nothing for my skin that I cannot get from a less expensive product. Sad I did not get the same results as most reviews but it really is just like putting water on my face. :-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Sure I got this in a TSV. It feels nice at the time that you put it on but I don't see any other benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious I am a 37yo male who has very sensitive skin. I thought it was time to start investing in skin care, but didn't know where to start. A friend of mine gave me a couple of Tatcha samples, and I was hooked. The Essence, at first glance, seemed a bit ridiculous. I could not see investing that much in something that appeared to be water. Well, I was totally wrong. The Essence feels so refreshing going on. My skin instantly awakens and soaks up every last drop. The Essence is an investment, but one that I am willing to make. It's a taste of luxury that is actually attainable with my budget. I may not ever have a mansion, but I'll have my Essence. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Living in Arizona my skin is always dry. The Essence is so moisturizing and if used with the enzyme rice powder from Tatcha you really see a difference. It lasts a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game-changer Adding the Essence to my skin care routine was a game-changer. It immediately plumps the skin, absorbs fast, makes me look more rested, and my skin takes on immediate clarity. I also believe that it has improved the effectiveness of the brightening serum I use. I cannot do without this product - every day, twice a day - and yet the full-size bottle lasts me almost a year. In time-rushed situations, or for travel, this is my security blanket. I only wish I did not have to keep buying the travel sizes - Tatcha, please come up with a re-fillable system so we can also try and have less environmental impact from packaging!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Work For Me! I used this faithfully twice a day and didn't see any improvement. Even right after I applied it, I couldn't feel anything. Just didn't work for me.
