Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder

I was really excited to try this out – the packaging is beautiful and I haven’t really used a powder cleanser before. I was really underwhelmed. It didn’t hurt my skin, but it didn’t help my skin either. It has a slightly bran-y smell to it, which I don’t particularly like.

The instructions say to use 1/2 tsp of powder, but when I tried this it didn’t lather a ton. Tatcha recommended I use more water and more product, which did help. But I’m still not blown away with it.

The packaging is beautiful and clever. The downside is you can’t use it in the shower and it can be a little bit clumsy to use versus a regular exfoliating cleanser.

Overall I don’t think it’s worth the hefty price-tag. It’s fun to try, and I do love the camellia cleansing oil, but I wouldn’t repurchase this rice powder.
