Tatcha Holiday Gift Sets + A Few of My Favorite Things

November 13, 2017

Tatcha Holiday Gift Sets and Favorite Skincare | The Beauty Look Book

Tatcha is having their holiday Friends and Family Sale online at until November 16th! With code FF2017 you will receive 20% off your order. They have a few lovely holiday gift sets you can only find on their website. I have a few to review for you today along with a roundup of my favorites. I’ve found Tatcha skincare to be great for sensitive and normal to dry skin. They’ve recently added more items for normal to combination skin which I’ve really loved. A few years ago they launched their first makeup item the Kyoto Red Lipstick. They’ve also added Plum Blossom and Cherry Blossom all of which have sold out numerous times. I hope they will restock and bring them back to be added to their permanent lineup because they are really beautiful!

Tatcha Holiday Gift Sets and Favorite Skincare | The Beauty Look Book

Up first is a look at some holiday launches. Their Holiday Gift Sets are always so beautifully packaged. Even their shipping boxes have a special touch with the packing and purple packing stickers on the outside. I’ve gifted Tatcha to a number of friends and the first thing they comment on is the beautiful packaging. Hearts are won even before they open the box!

Tatcha Holiday Gift Sets A Joyful Discovery and Kissed with Gold Set | The Beauty Look Book

If you’re looking for a good sampler set with minis the Joyful Discovery Set ($115) has six of their travel-sized favorites. If you’re new to Tatcha I think the best thing is that they have travel sizes they sell separately that have exceptional packaging. This one has:

  • One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil 25 ml
  • Classic Rice Enzyme Powder 10 g
  • The Essence 25 ml
  • Radiant Deep Brightening Serum 10 ml
  • The Silk Cream 10 ml
  • Ageless Revitalizing Eye Cream 3 ml

Another cute set is the Kissed With Gold Set Duo ($32) which has their Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm and a beautiful Gold Leaf Travel Mirror. This would make for an adorable stocking stuffer for anyone that wants a special lip balm. It’s smooth and nourishing and the gold flecks make for a beautiful looking balm.

Tatcha Holiday Lip Sets and Oil | The Beauty Look Book

For lip color there are three offerings this holiday. Two sets including the Camellia Kisses Lip Balm Trio ($85) which has three full-size tinted lip balms and the Blossoming Joy Silk Lipstick Trio ($60) which has three miniature lipsticks of their Kyoto Red, Sunrise A Plum Blossom and Twilight A Cherry Blossom. Unfortunately the lipstick set has sold out but I’m hoping it will be restocked because this is the perfect mini lipstick set! I ordered these during their early access sale and am glad to have snagged them! The third item launches is the Kyoto Red Tinted Lip Oil ($30) which is a beautiful sheer moisturizing red. I rarely wear reds but sheer ones are perfect for neutral lip lovers like me. They look more natural but still have a lovely tint.

As a quick FYI in case you don’t want the balms as a set, you can find the Red Camellia, Gold Spun and Cherry Blossom available individually online.

Last but not least are my favorites from Tatcha. I test a lot of skincare and Tatcha is one that always manages to calm my skin down and helps immensely with dryness when it occurs. My two absolute favorites for normal combination skin are the items in the soft sea green packaging. I hope they expand the line!

Tatcha Skincare Favorites from The Beauty Look Book

My personal favorites:

  • The Water Cream is one of my favorite water burst moisturizers. It’s super lightweight and feels like water on the skin but does adhere well to give it moisture. I’m beyond obsessed with it – it’s worked extremely well in humid Florida weather. It hydrates without looking shiny or getting too moisturizing.
  • The Water Gel (sold out on Tatcha but available at Sephora) is practically the only face gel I like and use. It’s gone on many travels with me and has a bit more substance/thickness than the water cream but applies smoothly and works well under all my liquid foundations.
  • The Silk Cream is best suited for dry skin, I will use this at night sometimes because during the day it’s a bit too rich for hot humid climates. It works well to hydrate and smooth the skin.
  • The Essence is my favorite essence of the moment. I really didn’t think it was doing anything to my skin but once I used it regularly I noticed everything else that followed absorbed better into my face. Also I notice when I don’t use it my skin doesn’t feel as balanced.
  • Camellia Lip Balm (sold out on Tatcha but available at Sephora) is a classic lip balm that smooths, hydrates and plumps. The gold leaf adds a special touch to it!
  • Violet-C Radiance Mask is one of the softest most gentle brightening masks I’ve tried. It has ingredients that give the skin a brighter glowing look. I didn’t notice immediate visible results from a one-time use, but skin feels very soft after you rinse it off. Regular weekly use has improved brightness for me. If you need a stronger mask this may not be the one for you.
  • Classic Enzyme Rice Powder is a staple for soft gentle daily exfoliation. I use this in conjunction with my regular liquid cleansers from other brands because I like traditional cleansers better for clean skin. I use the Tatcha Rice Powders in place of a face scrub to exfoliate in the most gentle way possible.
  • Dewy Skin Mist is a must for travel as my skin gets dried out on airplanes. I do find it too dewy for mid-day touch ups here in Florida. I hope they consider launching a lighter weight spray mist for oily skin because that would be my dream come true!

Favorites not shown because I’m all out and plan on restocking:

Do you have any favorites from Tatcha? I know a lot of you are huge fans of the line – let me know what you’ve tried and what has worked for you! The 20% off sale runs online at through November 16th with code FF2017.

Holiday gift sets gifted courtesy of Tatcha for review. All full-size items featured have also been press samples in past features but I’ve since repurchased all the items featured in this post on my own.

    I got the balm trio during the pre-sale. The plum color is the color I want my lips to be. ALWAYS. I have also surprisingly fallen in love with the water cream.

  • Erin Russell November 13, 2017 at 2:49 pm

    Ooooo wow they all look so good! This is one brand I stil haven’t tried yet – but I plan on trying soon, their dewy skin mist sounds unbelieveable!

      It’s great for dry skin 🙂

  • anna November 13, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    the indigo soothing triple recovery cream is pretty good when i’m feeling a little fried or stressed/extra gross, especially around a red nose. expensive but the travel size is perfect!

  • Melissa.rva November 13, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    Sabrina, I really like plum blossom and red camellia ! Beautiful colors ! I want to try the water cream and the pore perfecting sunscreen !

    • BeautyLookBook November 13, 2017 at 8:01 pm

      Thanks Melissa! The Water Cream is my fav 🙂

  • Glenda November 13, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    The only items that really catch my eye are – surprise surprise – the lip products.
    The lipsticks look quite pretty, but I don’t know… Tatcha is not really known for the make up, is it? Do you think they’re worth it?

    • BeautyLookBook November 13, 2017 at 8:01 pm

      I don’t think they are because they’re mainly skincare and only have a few makeup items. I do think they are 100% worth it!

  • Stephanie November 13, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    I also love the essence! And I just purchased the sunscreen – I was waiting for it to go on sale. It’s so expensive but like you said it serves as more than just sunscreen.
    Also curious to know what you think of the Camellia oil?

  • Sheila (Maddy Loves) November 13, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    Sabrina, are the mini lipsticks the same weighty-ness as the full size? Thanks for your review!

  • Carolina November 14, 2017 at 7:22 am

    These photos are stunning, omg! I didn’t knew that Tatcha had lipsticks, they seem really nice and also very similar to the Too Faced Peaches & Cream ones. xx

      Yep, Tatcha called Too Faced out on it!

  • Ilina Sandler November 14, 2017 at 11:12 am

    The packaging is so beautiful!

  • Laura Schmaltz November 14, 2017 at 11:20 am

    I am loving the look of that lip oil – now is the perfect time to give it a try! #beautylookbook

  • Cindy D. November 14, 2017 at 11:50 am

    Wow love the packaging! #beautylookbook

  • Christina November 14, 2017 at 11:54 am

    I have thus far been able to resist the lip color kits, but your swatches seriously tempt me. I don’t own any of the lipstick colours yet, and this set is just so good to try all three at once, that I might cave. I like that it’s the same hefty packaging as the full sized versions.

  • Amy Case November 14, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    I always return to the Camelia facial cleansing oil, and like you, I pair the Enzyme Rice Powder with any cleanser I use. I do like the facial mist, too. The lipsticks look wonderful! Haven’t tried those yet!

  • Victoria Hutson November 14, 2017 at 12:07 pm

    I would love to try some of Tatcha’s makeup products. I have only tried a couple of their skincare products. these all look so beautiful! #beautylookbook

  • Kelly H November 14, 2017 at 12:42 pm

    I love Tatcha and was hoping to try the lip products but they are sold out. #beautylookbook

  • jeansco84 November 14, 2017 at 12:57 pm

    The lipsticks look great…especially Kyoto Red! Their packaging is just exquisite! #beautylookbook

  • Deb Priest November 14, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    Love your blog! Tatcha does have beautiful packaging, luxurious products, and stellar customer service. I saw that those lipsticks sold out so quickly as a set. I have my eye on the overnight memory serum (during this sale); I think they changed the name but not the formula. I love that you can get travel sizes, as I need to try things out with my sensitive skin. I hope that the new purple mask comes out in travel size soon. Thanks so much! #beautylookbook

  • Kim November 14, 2017 at 2:38 pm

    All of your swatches are to die for. They all look so wearable and beautiful!

  • Amanda Jimenez November 14, 2017 at 2:43 pm

    I love the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. One night I used too much retinol and the next day the texture on my skin was really dry and rough. I tried to exfoliate the ‘flakes’ and the enzyme powder was perfect since it was so gentle on my already irritated skin. #beautylookbook

  • Aidalys Olivo November 14, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    Love the shade plum blossom on you! I need to invest in Tatcha products #beautylookbook

  • Talula November 14, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    The packaging for Tatcha is absolutely stunning. It really must feel like a ritual using these products. #thebeautylookbook

  • Novona November 14, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    Love the Tatcha products, the holiday packaging look so festive! Also love your pics. #beautylookbook

  • urbanangel November 14, 2017 at 6:27 pm

    I would love to try Tatcha stuff. Except it’s not available in Singapore as yet. Hope Sephora brings it in at some point.

  • Jessica November 14, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    Gift sets are a great way to try out new products. Tatcha products look so beautiful!

  • Jennifer Jones November 14, 2017 at 7:36 pm

    I hope this isn’t out of line, but omg, you have the most beautiful lips! Companies should hire you to advertise lipstick shades, seriously. I have bought so many lipsticks based your reviews.

    I love the Kyoto lip oil and the plum lipstick looks hydrating and opaque; I adore its natural lustre.

  • Bonnie November 14, 2017 at 8:23 pm

    The lipstick set is gorgeous. I keep checking the website in hopes that it will be restocked. 🙁

  • Holly November 14, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    Not only are Tatcha’s products really effective, but their customer service is absolutely wonderful. I love that!

    • nic November 15, 2017 at 10:34 am

      The CS is some of the very best!

  • Nermine Haddad November 14, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    Just placed an order on! I am very excited to try their products as I only heard good things about them.

  • Yi Qiao November 15, 2017 at 12:31 am

    Wow, I really hope the lipstick trio gets restocked, the colors look absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! #beautylookbook

    • nic November 15, 2017 at 10:33 am

      They are gorgeous. The plum balm is also beautiful!

      • Jennifer Jones November 15, 2017 at 11:27 am

        I’m conflicted. The balms look so beautiful, but I really dislike lipbalms I have to put my fingers in; it’s messy for me. I hope they make the plum color in the tinted lip Oil.

        • nic November 19, 2017 at 10:14 am

          Me too! I will say I have a big bottom lip and don’t use my fingers for balms. I know I’m yucky. No one else touches it!

    • Jennifer Jones November 15, 2017 at 11:25 am

      Me, too! I’m hoping there’s more coming for Black Friday sales.

  • Deborah Hayes November 15, 2017 at 11:44 am

    Both Camellia lip colors (Plum Blossom & Red) look amazing on you! #beautylookbook Thank you for introducing me to this product line.

  • Stephanie November 15, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    The lip oils and lipsticks are so beautiful! I really need to actually try the cleansing oil as I have a couple samples just sitting in my cabinet.

  • Heather Fernandez November 15, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    All beautiful sets. I picked up the Obento box and haven’t tried it yet because 1) I have lots of skincare to go through still and 2) it’s almost to beautiful to open haha. Can’t wait to dig in and try even more Tatcha! #beautylookbook

  • tasa November 15, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    You are so right, they win you over with thoughtful and luxurious packaging before we ever get to see what’s inside. And what’s inside is fantastic as well! I really like that gift set with the lip balm and mirror compact, it’d be an ideal gift for a few people I know. #beautylookbook

  • Anita Luo November 15, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    These sets are incredible! Love the gorgeous festive packaging and they make great gifts for friends and family looking to try Tatcha for the first time. Thanks for the detailed breakdown! #beautylookbook

  • Justine R November 15, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    Tatcha is definitely my holy grail brand – except for a cleanser, my entire skincare regime comes from the line! I ordered the mini lipsticks as soon as they were available again after the preview – the packaging looks amazing!

  • Rose Browne November 15, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    I had a whole cart full of goodies ready to purchase but contained myself at the last minute! Friends and Family sales AND the Sephora VIB discount are killing my wallet. I might ask for the discovery set for Christmas – those lipsticks are also calling to me! #beautylookbook

  • Berenice Pulido November 15, 2017 at 11:35 pm

    Love tatcha!!! Can’t wait to try their lippies!!!

  • Stephanie November 16, 2017 at 1:35 am

    I keep adding more things to my Sephora basket because of you, Sabrina! #beautylookbook

  • Jesselyn November 16, 2017 at 4:56 am

    Love the look of the lip products.

  • Julie November 16, 2017 at 9:33 am

    I have yet to try any Tatcha products but really want their water cream and dewy mist spray. Totally missed out on the Sephora sale again so I’m screwed. Oh wells… 🙁 #beautylookbook

  • lilahtov November 16, 2017 at 11:53 am

    I’ve always loved Tatcha, and always come straight to your blog whenever I get wind of a new release because I feel I can trust your opinion! In the most recent Sephora sale, I splurged on The Silk Cream and I cannot wait to see if my skin reacts well to the investment. #thebeautylookbook

  • Emily C November 16, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    I so regret not buying the lipstick trio, who knew it would sell so fast in the preview! Thanks for posting, this is all great info for a fellow Tatcha obsessor 🙂 #beautylookbook

  • Haiwen Chang November 16, 2017 at 8:45 pm

    I’ve been looking everywhere for inspiration on Christmas presents and I think I just might get their holiday gift set for my mom! I’ve only ever seen Tatcha in passing and I’ve never tried their stuff so thanks for the really detailed breakdown! Also, can I just say your photography for your reviews are always the bomb dot com??? #beautylookbook
