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 4.3 out of 5 by 82.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Notice a difference as soon as I put it on I got this as part of the TSV. I have no idea what's in it, but the instant I patted it on my face and neck I noticed a difference. My skin was noticeably softer, my moisturizer went on better and so did my foundation. I got a great deal price wise with the TSV, but I'd have to say, I'm thinking of getting this on auto delivery too just so I don't run out EVER.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Am I missing something??? I don't get some of these rave reviews. I purchased this as the TSV. I really wanted to like these products. While the Essence feels nice, I really don't see it doing much of anything. You're basically patting really expensive water on your face. I wouldn't call it a serum, as some reviewers have. I am unfortunately returning the whole set. It caused me to break out...everywhere

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product, Outstanding Mission This is a superb product in every way. From its quality to its packaging, to its mission of educating girls! One product equals one day of school ... good for you Tatcha! Not only does it help my skin, but simply looking at the beautifully designed bottles on my counter makes me feel Beautiful! Love the Asian influenced packaging so much I'm using the interior boxes as organizers for my drawers! Great job, keep it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! This essence is incredible! Like the host says it’s the product you never knew you needed but now cannot live without. My skin can get very dry but for days that it is extra dry I do two applications of this and it really helps with hydration. Love the pour spout as is really controls how much comes out so there is no waste. Bottle also lasts a very long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great essence I've been using SKII for over a year and that was my first introduction to essences but after discovering the tatcha brand I figured I would try their essence as well. I absolutely LOVE. Does not make me break out and quickly absorbs into my skin. I took off 1 star only because I think the packaging and method for applying is a little bit awkward. When I pour into my hands I always feel like product gets wasted as it slips between my fingers. I would prefer a spray bottle instead. I actually take this out and pour into a glass spray bottle which makes me feel I get more use and less waste. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
