I've often wanted what I can't have. Rather, I fall in love with something I see in a magazine and immediately want it. The problem is that I live in Canada, that country directly north of the US. For some reason, a lot of companies don't/won't ship to Canada, and some that do, won't ship to Quebec, the province I live in. That's where my resourcefulness comes in.
Last fall, I stumbled upon the Japanese brand Tatcha and immediately wanted to try all of their products. I considered ordering online and paying huge shipping costs but then I decided to try to be patient (not my strong suit) and wait for an upcoming Thanksgiving weekend in New York. On Black Friday, I excitedly trotted off to Barney's and bought two products, including the classic rice enzyme powder (after receiving a great demonstration and partial make-up application by Michelle - she's wonderful).
Let me tell you that this product is so luscious, elegant, gentle and effective. It's an exfoliant without the harsh granules or bits found in western exfoliants. I tend to use it in the morning to give my skin a fresh glow. This powder really leaves my skin rosy, dewy and not tight or dry at all. It's also gentle enough for my sensitive, reactive skin.
Below is a short video from the Tatcha website which shows how to use the product.
