Weekly Must-Have: Tatcha Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel
Combination and oily skin types have (finally) met their (moisturizing) match. Tatcha Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel ($68) is the ideal moisturizer to balance combination, oily, and shiny complexions while still providing a healthy, dewy glow. READ: THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT GIVE YOU A MATTE APPEARANCE. And FYI, matte isn’t really trending for summer (see here for proof).
Why we like it: Tatcha’s Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel is lightweight and refreshing. The formula almost feels (and smells) like water. But the coolest part about this product is that it contains specks of 23-karat gold to offer instant shimmer. Like a very subtle highlight for the entire face, basking in an ethereal glow, without the shine. Japanese wild rose tightens pores while Japanese dokudami and leopard lilly diminish shine and the appearance of blemishes.
As us combination and oily skin folk know, it’s difficult to find a product that will balance oil and shininess without totally mattifying the skin. Well, this product does it! The complexion looks so healthy and dewy (in all the right places) after application, it truly is like the best Instagram filter.
One word to describe Tatcha’s Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel: Obsessed.
