Delivery Options:
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 4.2 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A product that actually works I got this product when it was part of a TSV. It made a dramatic and immediate difference in my skin. I am a total skeptic when it comes to skin care so I was surprised that this lived up to the hype. I would give it 5 stars, but like so many others, I believe that the price is way too high.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price This product makes my skin softer but it's not worth the price. Maybe if they make it supersize, I will be thinking on ordering it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does nothing Like others have said, this is just over priced water. It does absolutely nothing and costs a lot of money. The only thing worth trying in this line is the rice polished and it too is over priced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good but not good enough I tried this and saw only a slight difference as long as I used it. For this price I expected to be able to skip a day and still see results. Too expensive for the results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST I have noticed an absolute difference using this before applying the Tatcha moisturizer. I am addicted. My face is smooth and I look refreshed. I just wish it wasn't sooo expensive!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tatcha Essence Like many others I got this in the TSV. I really like the Essence plumping softener and the Rice polisher, they both change the way my skin feels, much softer. The problem I have is the price, we are paying for the fancy packaging and no one sees it except me. I like the eye cream too, but I can't see paying $146.25 for fancy packaging, so sorry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from what's the fuss about? Got this as part of TVS but like other reviewers have said, it doesn't do much. would prefer a real serum, this is just "water" but doesn't add any moister to the skin, so you still need another serum plus moisturizer cream plus eye cream......and the list goes on. I definitely would not purchase it as a separate item. No worth the price
