What it is:
Inspired by the geisha's iconic makeup, we created this invisible, lightweight sunscreen to perfect and protect skin, making it an elegant, everyday essential.

I could rave on and on about this sunscreen all day. Not only is it PA +++ but it also smells AMAZING. It isn’t greasy at all and actually blurs some of my pores to the point where I don’t even have to feel like I need makeup! There’s no white residue left on my skin after using it and did I mention it smells AMAZING?! Made a post about it on my skincare instagram page skingasmic... but I just wish it wasn’t so expensive! I’ll probably still spend the money though, just cause I love it so much and have never found another sunscreen like it

I really love this. I was trying to incorporate sunscreen into my morning routine but I hate the smell and feel of traditional sunscreens under my makeup (and I wear a lot of makeup sometimes). This one claims it can be used as a primer too so that caught my attention plus Tatcha was having a good promo so I took a leap of faith. It’s great as a primer and I love that sunscreen finally has a place in my routine the only down side is the price. It’s definitely high end status for a sunscreen but I’ve bought primers that were more expensive. Being a 2 in 1 product justified this purchase for me but if you don’t care about the priming factors I’m sure you could find a cheaper better alternative for you.

Amazing sunscreen and primer in one! It really perfects my pores and it also works as a primer. It has SPF but it does not give me that SPF shine or white mask effect if you know what I mean. It is feather light and did not break out my sensitive skin.  This, my fellow lady friends, is probably the holy grail of sunscreen and a fantastic primer to boot. Yes, it is pricey but it's totally worth it, and a little goes a long way, it is so easy to spread evenly on the face.

This is my first Tatcha product I tried. It has really good reviews on Sephora, but I hesitated to buy because of the price. When Sephora had their end of the year sale, I picked one up. It's thicker than other sunscreens I've tried, but it not heavy on my oily skin. It's more of a cream to powder feel and instantly feels satiny on the skin. My reason for giving only 4 stars is that it does leave a slight white cast on my olive/tan skin.

I’m not entirely sure if this product does much to improve my skin, but I have really enjoyed using it the past few months. It doesn’t clog my pores and it is very smooth. I love the matte finish and I find it isn’t too heavy. I do really like the smell and the satin-like feel it gives to my skin. I have two travel size of these and I use regularly. A little does go a long way. I’m not sure if I’d buy the full size just because it is so expensive. I also feel this works better as a primer than the tatcha silk canvas.

This product broke me out like no other. The only thing that I changed in my makeup routine, I used this product after washing my face and before applying foundation. I did like it as a face primer, I felt that my skin looked soft and flawless and my foundation looked so great. But after 3 days of using this product consecutively, 3 large pimples formed, 2 on my nose (ouch!) and 1 on my chin. Thankfully, I got this as a sample at Sephora. The lady tried to sell me on it and she told me this was a great product and will not break me out. You know what they say, don't believe everything you hear.

I got a chance to try a deluxe sample size of this sunscreen and cannot live without it!!! It’s a combination if chemical and physical sunscreen. No white cast at all. It primes my skin beautifully and perfect under makeup. Will purchase a full size soon!

Just got this, I was going back and forth about getting it for a while because of the price but boy am I glad I bought it. Tatcha products never seem to amaze me it’s so soft, smells so good, and looks so nice on the skin. No matter what other product I’m wearing under or over this, everything always looks great. I don’t go anywhere without this! Would buy over and over again

This is pricey but worth it! I used this daily while I lived in Hawaii and it protected my face so well! Also works wonderfully as a primer. Always made my skin very soft and smooth and not overly white

Tatcha products are so lovely. This sunscreen is no exception. Smells like heaven, not overpowering or chemically, very natural. Diminishes pores. Leaves skin soft and prepped for make up. Wears wonderfully under foundation and powder.

Could this be used as a makeup primer for dry skin? If so, is it effective as a primer in keeping foundation on longer?

Is this an oil absorbing sunscreen? I'm looking for something that won't leave me looking like a grease ball come the afternoon!
