Product Review: Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil


      Today we're going to talk about a product from one of my favorite skincare brands - Tatcha. Everything I've tried in store, as well as the one product I've bought full size from the brand (their rice enzyme powder) has felt amazing on my skin, and all of the products feel really luxurious. I want to eventually try every single one of their products. Now that I have the cleansing oil, it looks super nice when place next to the Rice Enzyme Powder. At this price point, the packaging and aesthetics should also look high end too am I right?

Review

      I know, it's really pricey at $48 per bottle. I got mine during the recent VIB sale and it still stung a little to fork over the money. However, I looked at it as a luxury splurge in the realm of skincare. The cleansing oil has the most lightest faint shade of amber in it, but it's mostly almost clear in color. It feels really silky on the skin, and has a light fragrance to it but it's barely noticeable. Compared to the Shu Uemura Premium A/I oil (which I reviewed here), the fragrance is definitely not as strong. Tatcha advertises this cleansing oil as a "one step" meaning there is no need to double cleanse. I still double cleanse by going over my skin with a micellar water cleanser afterwards, but there is no residue on the cotton pad so I can see why you could use it as your only step. Unlike the Shu Uemura cleansing oil, this cleansing oil doesn't leave a film on my face. Instead my face feels pretty much the same it did before I cleansed. Some cleansing oils can feel really heavy when you're trying to rinse it off, but the Tatcha cleansing oil on the other hand feels really light. The best feature about this cleansing oil is that it rinses off super clean.

Concluding Remarks

      This is one of the best high end cleansing oils currently available in my opinion. It hurts that it's so pricey, but I just love how this oil rinses off so easily and cleanly. If you dislike heavy feeling cleansing oils that leave your skin feeling slightly heavier prewash, definitely give the Tatcha cleansing oil a try. It also is suitable for drier skins as my skin didn't feel tight after I rinsed everything off.
