Company – If you aren’t familiar with TATCHA they are a U.S. based company with products created in and inspired by Japan. They use some great ingredients and offer free shipping in the U.S. I’ve dealt with customer service and they are great plus have super fast shipping. Their products are not cheap but in my experience quite concentrated so last a long time.

Review- I have been using this sunscreen fairly regularly for about a month. The container is a normal squeeze tube.
The product itself is similar to a normal sunscreen a little thick right out of the tube. It smells a bit like sunscreen but that disapates quickly.
It is very lightweight and non greasy. My number one qualification for face sunscreen is that it is not greasy as I hate having my face greasy. This one is great as its not greasy at all. It also goes on so smooth and not too heavy. It doesn’t clog my pores and really does prime my face for makeup. I still like to use a makeup primer on top of this and that works fine too. Finally, this really works to protect my face! Sunscreen has always been important but since I started using Vitamin C serum I’m even more sensitive to the sun. I recently went to a local festival and spent some significant time outside and wore this sunscreen. I was silly and forgot to put it on so I kinda slapped it on before I left. You could definitely tell where I missed putting the sunscreen as I got burnt 😦 The rest of my skin was perfectly fine so I know it works well!
Invisible when rubbed in.
I have to say I absolutely love this sunscreen. Yes, it’s pricey, but it’s far better than anything I’ve used for my face. It really is worth the money in my opinion. It also doesn’t take a lot to cover my face so this tube will last me awhile. I can’t recommend it enough.
