I’m partnering with Sephora today to share exciting new hydrating products from two of my longtime favorite brands, Fresh and Tatcha! After Nori was born, I admit my beauty regimen fell a bit to the wayside. But as a tired mama, skincare is all the more important when starting and ending each day. One step I try never to skip is hydrating my face and neck using a quality product. I have a few favorite hydrating products in rotation that I change up based on our weather and humidity, and how my skin is feeling at the moment.
For self pampering at home, Fresh has been one of my go-tos. They actually started out as a little apothecary shop in Boston! I often travel with their gentle soy face wash and have gone though many of their face masks (this is such a great little set – I’ve used and enjoyed all 3 for different purposes!).
If you’re a fan of other products in Fresh’s rose skincare collection, you will love their new Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask which I’ve been using a few times a week in lieu of regular moisturizer at night. This is a 2 layer treatment that’s applied before bed, and has a soothing light rose fragrance. The more translucent half of this mask is a hydrating gel essence that’s cool to the touch (will feel amazing in warm weather!), made with rose water, rose essence and hyaluronic acid. I apply this first and let it absorb for a few seconds, before sealing it in with the silky water-cream from the other half. Together, this mask works overnight and leaves me with plump, moisturized skin in the morning despite our dry Boston weather! Unlike some overnight masks, it does not leave residue that you have to worry about getting on your pillowcase or having to rinse off.
I was introduced to Tatcha about 5 years ago, and fell in love with the brand again during pregnancy. Their products are wonderfully gentle on sensitive skin, and their ingredients list earns them a CLEAN label at Sephora. If you’re not familiar with the Tatcha, they combine age-old Japanese skincare traditions with modern day science in formulating their products, utilizing a lot of natural anti-aging ingredients like green tea, algae, and botanical extracts. As mentioned in my hospital bag packing post, their Gold Camellia Beauty Oil even came with me as a quick way to “indulge” my skin during that hectic time!
If you have dry skin like myself, Tatcha’s new The Dewy Skin Cream is a luxurious, rich moisturizer and will likely become another cult favorite. It’s made with Japanese purple rice which is packed with antioxidants for healthy-looking skin, along with the brand’s signature algae blend and hyaluronic acid to keep skin soft and hydrated. The texture is creamy, yet applies smoothly leaving just a soft, dewy finish. I scoop a pearl sized amount using the attached little gold spoon, and apply to my face, neck, and upper chest area (don’t forget these areas beyond the face!). I use this right after washing my face, then do my hair and get dressed before putting on makeup.
Thank you to Sephora for partnering on this post.
