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 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing When I first bought this over a year ago, I thought it literally did nothing, so I have it to my husband (who NEVER had a skin care routine). He used if you about 2 weeks and his fine line/wrinkle on his forehead was noticeably smaller/almost gone! So I started using it again. I have come to the conclusion that since I have always (im 26) had a phenomenal skin care routine this will be my "maintenance" so that my skin will look more youthful and radiant as I age. Its more of a "preventative" product and the long term results are what I'm going to benefit from. I am not on my 2nd bottle and my husband and I each have our own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing I press it into the skin & it’s kind of sticky feeling. However, when I put my skincare on top, it helps the products penetrate the skin better. Also softens & moisturizer’s my skin as well. Good product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I used to just use the silk cream by itself then I implemented the essence about a week ago and noticed immediate results! It appears to be just water, but it seriously changed my skin... it feels so soft now, I know the 4 steps can be a bit pricey, but working in sales, I know a good product line when I see it, and I firmly stand by all of tatchas products and would recommend them to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful smoothing After seeing many reviews I purchased this. It makes your face feel instantly smooth. Yes it feels like you are putting on water...but it is not. You can tell that its working. So glad I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nectars of the Gods! There is something counter-intuitively delightful about this product. It looks like water. It has no detectable fragrance or odor, but I know that my other products such as my vitamin C, vitamin E serums work better since I add this product to my routine. My age spots seem to fade quietly in the past few months. I have been using brightening serums, and never have I ever seen anything happened. The bottle design is ingenious. It allows only a few drops to escape with each shake so that I can’t waste this precious nectar by over pouring it into my hand. I can turn the whole bottle upside downs, and I won’t have all of this precious water gushing to the floor. If you compare this product to other high-end brands that offer an essence product, you will realize how thoughtful and effective is the design of this vessel, and that’s before you even got into the efficacy of the product itself. If you expect to see something within a week, then you might not see it, but if you give it time, you will see a marked improvement in your skin texture and appearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit For Any Skin Regimen I really like this because it allows you to put on any other serums and creams smoothly without having any “resistance” or pulling on the skin. It’s not drying at all. And a little goes a long way, I expect the bottle to last me a while.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO DIFFERENCE In January I switched my entire skin care to Tatcha. I'm mid 30's, oil combination/acne prone skin, with sun spots. Out of all of the Tatcha line her eye creams are my favorite and the only product I'm still using to this day. The essence plumbing skin softener felt like I was just splashing water on my face. I noticed no difference using this product, other than my wallet was thinner.
