As someone who likes to keep her skin-care routine pretty basic, I'm very picky when it comes to adding new products to my beauty regimen. While I'm not one to quickly jump on any beauty bandwagon, when it comes to Tatcha, all bets are off. The Japanese beauty brand known for its use of botanicals and potent formulas has got me hooked, thanks in particular to the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist.


With the Well+Good SHOP, you can now add products to your cart right from this article page. Just click on the product below and more details will pop up in a new window. Hit “add to cart” and voila! That’s it! As you read more SHOP articles, you can keep adding products to your cart and check out when you’re ready (look for the cart icon on the right side of your screen).

The product has a ton of hype, all of which is warranted. Not only does it help with setting your makeup and keeping your skin moisturized in the process, but it's also designed to give your skin a natural, healthy glow and help keep skin elastic and supple. The latter of which it does through the brand's signature formulation of green tea, rice and algae. Together, these ingredients work to help promote cell turnover and strength your skin's moisture barrier.

Plus, there aren't many rules on how to use it. For example, you can spritz a few pumps on your face post-makeup application to give skin more sheen (which can be nice if your foundation is more on the matte side, or you're using a setting powder that takes away some of your natural dewyness), or you can use it as a pick-me-up for your bare skin on the days when you want to go au naturel.

It's so lightweight, you can usually give your face a few spritzes without your skin feeling super wet (or leaving behind a weird, or sticky residue). The mist is very subtle, and evaporates immediately into your skin. By comparison, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray (which I swear by to keep my makeup in place) has bigger droplets that take a couple seconds to set and fully absorb into your skin. With the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist, you can also spritz your face fairly close up without it causing your makeup to melt off.

In regard to its dewiness and hydration claims, it does hold up nicely. For example, when I applied the mist to my bare skin in the morning, my face felt softer and looked slightly brighter over the course of several days. Though to be fair, I did apply this in tandem with chemical exfoliants, which tend to naturally soften skin and balance uneven texture. And while the solution did feel a lot lighter than toners I'm used to wearing on a daily basis, my skin stayed hydrated all day long, thanks to the the squalane and silk extract.

"I’ve tried sooooo many setting sprays/face mists over the years and this is hands down my favorite!" one shopper commented. "It does EXACTLY what it says it will do so read the description. It is definitely ultra fine like it says so it will give you a light even mist and it almost feels like you hardly sprayed your face but when you look in the mirror you’ll immediately see the results. It’s the most luminous, dewy spray I’ve ever tried without being sparkly or glittery at all."

Overall, if you want to avoid cake-y makeup application, or your skin needs a shot of hydration, this mist may just be what your beauty cabinet needs this season and beyond.
