One of the questions I got a lot with the MSA Quarterly box was "Do you get to pick any items you want or does Quarterly provide you with a list of items to choose from?" The good news (and one of the reasons I wanted to work with Quarterly) is that the sky is the limit when it comes to products for boxes. That doesn't necessarily mean I'll get every item I might want for a box, but Quarterly will try to get it.
Quarterly also has relationships with some companies and brands, so they let me know brands that they thought I might be interested in for the box. I wasn't expecting to find many brands that matched up with what I was looking for, but then Quarterly mentioned Tatcha and I said YES!!!
I have used Tatcha products for over a year now, and I love how all their beauty products are luxurious, effective, and free of all the ingredients I like to avoid when I can.
I picked the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder for the box for a few reasons: 1) I love how my skin feels after I use it. 2) It's gentle enough to use everyday. 3) It turns a relatively mundane task like washing your face into a little indulgent experience.
And - this cleanser lasts for so long! I've been using my cleanser from the initial MSA01 shipment everyday, and I still have over three quarters left!
Tatcha has also offered My Subscription Addiction readers $20 off a purchase of $40 or more with coupon code MSAFALL (expires November 15th), so I wanted to share a few more of my favorite Tatcha products in case you are thinking about making a Tatcha purchase:
This indigo body butter is surprisingly light and absorbs quickly - and it has that wonderful Tatcha signature scent. This Moisture Rich Silk Cream very gentle and nourishing - I highly recommend it if you're looking for a skin cream for sensitive skin. (And yes, that is a tiny gold spoon tied with a purple ribbon to the top of the skin cream. Tatcha has the best packaging ever!)
FYI - If you want to try any Tatcha item before making the full-size investment, make sure to check out their travel size section.
This serum has the consistency of a lightweight lotion, and just like the rich silk cream, it is so gentle and moisturizing. And this Dewy Skin Mist is the best facial hydrator spray I've ever tried. The mist is so fine and hydrating that it really does achieve the "dewy" look without ever looking like you just sprayed water on your face!
Have you tried any other Tatcha products you recommend? And if you've been using the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder from the first box, I'd love to hear what you think of it!
