Product Review: TATCHA Violet-C Radiance Mask

You guys know I love a good mask, so when I find one that's pretty, too - it's like icing on the cake (or mask on the face?).

I've heard all of the chatter about the Violet-C Radiance Mask from Tatcha, and honestly, I figured I would never try it because it's a little more than I care to spend on a mask. Then Sephora offered a deluxe sample, so I snagged one!

Such a pretty presentation! I love the box and jar! Then, wow - when you open the jar and see that luxurious lavender just know it's going to be good.

Of course, because my skin is so sensitive, I'm always a little worried that when I try a new product I'll end up with either irritated or flaky skin. My skin doesn't take kindly to the most commonly used AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid), but I thought the AHAs in this product might work better for me since they come from a complex of seven fruits. There is also fragrance in it, but it is one of the last things on the ingredient list.

TATCHA Violet-C Radiance Mask ingredient list

The info from the Tatcha website calls it "a creamy anti-aging mask packed with Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and AHAs from seven fruits." It is supposed to help with dullness, uneven texture, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and fine lines and wrinkles.

More from the Tatcha website: "Reveal remarkably softer, smoother skin with this creamy rinse-off treatment mask. The formula features two types of vitamin C: a water-soluble vitamin C derivative that absorbs quickly for an immediate glow and an oil-soluble vitamin C derivative that remains in skin longer, providing antioxidant protection from UV damage for a brighter, more even-toned appearance over time. The mask is also powered by the Japanese beautyberry, a superfruit rich in antioxidants that was found to stabilize vitamin C, maximizing its effectiveness. A gentle 10 percent AHA complex of seven fruits removes debris and the buildup of dead skin cells to visibly improve skin texture and support the natural production of new skin cells. Tatcha's signature trio of Japanese anti-aging superfoods—green tea, rice, and algae—helps to restore a more youthful appearance."

 How Tatcha suggests you use the product:
- After cleansing, apply a generous, even layer to skin, avoiding the eye area
- Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water
- Can be used two to three times per week

Even though the instructions say that it can be used two or three times per week, I only used it once a week because I didn't want to risk irritating my sensitive skin.

I really like the way my skin feels after removing this mask - soft and smooth. I even like the way the mask feels on my skin - very hydrating. It doesn't dry out like some masks, so it doesn't pull at your skin. It doesn't sting or tingle - and I don't even really notice a fragrance either. It's also easy to remove. I didn't experience any issues with the AHAs or fragrance just using the product once a week. I usually do my masks at bedtime because some can be messy if you don't lie down, but this is one that you could easily apply during the day and go about your regular routine.

As I mentioned earlier, I figured this was a product that I would only ever try as a sample because of the price. A 1.7 oz. jar is $68. But I discovered that a little goes a long way. I was able to get 5-6 applications out of my small 0.34 oz. sample jar (which is 1/5 the size of the regular jar). So I should be able to get 25-30 applications from a full-size jar, making the cost $2.25-$2.75 per application. Of course, this would vary with the amount you apply to your face. I did a thin application, but thick enough that it wasn't all dried out after 15-20 minutes. This will probably go on my list of products to purchase during the 20% off Sephora Rouge sale. (Side note: Gus thinks I'm high-maintenance because I've been at Rouge level for three years. I disagree. A girl needs her products, am I right?)

One more thing that I like about Tatcha products. When you purchase a full-sized Tatcha skincare item, it will fund a day of school for incredible girls through Tatcha's Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures partnership with Room to Read. I do not know if this only applies to items purchased from their website or if it also includes items from Sephora.

Have you tried the Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask? What did you think? I want to hear your opinions!
