A skincare representative and aesthetician from San Francisco came down to Barneys flagship in Manhattan on Saturday to perform the radiance facial for the Tatcha line of skincare. An Asian inspired line from the secrets of the ancient Geisha, Tatcha comes at you with natural botanicals, like green tea and red algae. Apparently the owner of the company found a book of ancient skincare rituals from Japan and then formed her company. During the facial, the aesthetician performed unique techniques and demonstrated each of the products applied to the skin.
Cleansing with the Pure One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, the aesthetician gently massaged the oil into my skin until it lathered to a light foam texture and then removed the oil with a warm towel. All of the products applied from this line smell lovely, a soft and delicate floral scent reminiscent of springtime in Kyoto 🙂 Upon applying the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist in a few soft mists, the aesthetician then placed a coconut-based Deep Hydration Lifting Mask on my skin and left it on for about 10 minutes while performing a restful neck massage. It’s a super refreshing scent, and when placed on the skin you feel a cooling sensation for the extent of the mask treatment.
On the eye area and up through the brow bone, the aesthetician applied a soothing Revitalizing Eye Cream and then massaged the cream in with an Akari Crystal Massager. If you stroke upward in the brow area when applying an eye cream, you maintain a natural lift of the eyebrow area. Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream as a facial moisturizer followed the crystal facial massage, supposed to improve circulation and maintain youthful appearance of your skin. On both of my arms, the aesthetician performed a massage with the Gold Camellia Beauty Oil, and it felt amazing with the delicate scent of licorice, bamboo, and green tea and the luxurious texture of the oil on my skin!
As a finishing touch, dabbed a little Gold Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm with actual pieces of gold foil covering a clear balm on the inside. Super moisturizing and lush when applied to hydrated lips during the facial session 🙂 It compliments the skincare line with its delicate scent, lush texture, and specks of gold foil throughout the products.
