ICYMI, Meghan Markle has great skin. But let’s be real: You didn’t miss it, because standing at that altar, the now duchess of Sussex was a walking advertisement for the power of skin care (plus face massages and probably good genes). The latter two might not be easily attainable, but Meghan’s skin care routine just became way more feasible to own.
Tatcha—the pricey-but-worth-it brand behind Meghan’s go-to exfoliator—just announced that from now through Thursday, November 15, the brand is offering 20 percent off everything on its website as part of its Family & Friends sale. All you have to do is use the code FF2018 at checkout. Despite the annual-seeming moniker, this happens once in a blue moon. Plus, for each product sold, Tatcha will donate a day of school to girls in need across 11 countries in Southeast Asia and Africa. Meghan Markle would be proud.
As for that skin care staple of hers, the exfoliator in question is Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Powder, which is the rare scrub that you can use every day without screwing up your skin. Because where other scrubs typically rely on ground-up shell powder or mild acids to clear off your dead skin, Tatcha’s formula uses a combination in the gentlest way possible. Per Markle, “It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation.” That foam is formed from water activating the rice and papaya enzymes, which then comes for dullness and leaves no prisoners. The powder runs $65 for jar, but with the weeklong discount it’s down to $52.
Elsewhere in what to shop, Tatcha’s Violet-C Radiance Mask won a Glamour Beauty Award for Best Mask—a category with some serious competition, but nothing quite gives your skin an instant glow like it. The brand is also responsible for two frequent Sephora best-sellers. Last year Tatcha’s Water Cream was elected the retailers’ best-selling moisturizer, unsurprising given its oil-free gel texture. Heaviness isn’t in the Tatcha lexicon; the moisturizer sinks into your skin in two seconds flat, and yet it keeps your skin hydrated for hours. Likewise lightweight is the brand’s new undereye cream and concealer hybrid, The Pearl, which has a pearlized formula that reflects light as it lays down hyaluronic acid and brightening niacinamide.
And while we’re always hesitant to judge a product’s worth by how often it’s out of stock (you never know what’s going on behind the scenes), our senior beauty editor, Lindsay Schallon, attests to the greatness of the brand’s thrice-sold-out primer. Yup, primer: the thing that everyone looks at and thinks, Really?, until now. While most primers prove pretty worthless, Lindsay says that “this one somehow can make a $10 foundation look like a $70 one. The tiniest bit goes a long, long way, so it more than makes up for its cost.”
