1.0 fl.oz./30g $88.00

I had been wanting to try something from TATCHA for a while. So, during the SEPHORA sale, I bit the bullet and purchased this serum. The Dewy Serum. Yes, it was a little bit expensive. However, I have heard nothing but good things about the line. And so far I have yet to be disappointed! 

TATCHA The Dewy Serum is a 3-in-1 serum of "clean" kind-to-skin ingredients that will gently resurface the skin with lactic acid in Hadasei-3™ (rice ferment filtrate), plumps with hyaluronic acid, and locks in moisture with squalane for smoother, plumper, more dewier skin. Recommended for all skin types, this lightweight serum disappears right into the skin and is non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing. This serum has been dermatologist tested and does not contain any mineral oil, parabens, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, urea, DEA, or TEA. It was Inspired by the Japanese concept of shinsei, which means 'new birth'. The chief scientist at the TATCHA Institute in Tokyo. Tagawa-san created The Dewy Serum to restore and replenish the key components of healthy skin. These components get lost over time and are needed to help it perform at its optimal level. Their proprietary complex, Hadasei-3™, gently resurfaces skin and as dead skin cells are washed away, the serum replenishes moisture with plumping hyaluronic acid and moisture locking squalane, both of which are present from birth. Together these three ingredients will return your skin to the most supple, bouncy radiance that has been lost over time. Also contained in the formula is Tocopheryl acetate and Tocopherol, aka Vitamin E, which help to moisturize and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Hydrolyzed elastin, acts as a humectant to draw moisture into the skin and hydrolyzed collagen, helps to restore lost moisture.

Consumer testing of The Dewy Serum yielded the following results:
  • Immediately it boosts hydration by 6x
  • 91% showed an improvement in radiance**
  • All day long people maintained 2x the hydration*
  • After 2 weeks: 
    • 100% showed improvement in radiance**
    • 98% showed an improvement in texture**
  • After 4 weeks: 
    • 100% showed an improvement in radiance and texture**
    • 87% showed improvement in elasticity**
    • 82% showed an improvement in the appearance of fine lines**

(*based on bioinstrumentation study conducted on 25 people. **based on an expert graded 4 week study, twice daily use on 45 people.)

To Use: dispense 1-2 pumps and gently massage into your skin. Use The Dewy Serum during your morning and/or evening skincare routine. TATCHA recommends using it following their The Essence and before using any moisturizer, to amplify its results.  

I love the way this serum makes my skin feel. Immediately upon application my skin feels soft, supple and dewy. The serum literally sinks into the skin and gives it soothing hydration and lasting moisture that the skin has been lacking. I use it over another serum, usually a hyaluronic acid or polyglutamic acid serum and still this serum hydrates better than that one does. It must be the combination of ingredients together. There are a lot of humectants in this serum, for example glycerin is listed as the fifth ingredient on the list. Glycerin is a powerful humectant and is worth its weight in gold for attracting moisture to the skin. Listed second on the ingredients list is camellia sinensis extract, more commonly known as green tea extract. Well known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, skin conditioning, and humectant properties; this extract is perfect for this serum as it helps to soothe and hydrate the skin. Another moisturizing ingredient listed is crambe abyssinca seed oil also known as Abyssinian oil. It helps to promote skin softness, suppleness, and wrinkle reduction. 

I definitely noticed an immediate increase in hydration, skin looks more radiant and maintained the hydration all day long. My skin's texture was already pretty good, but this serum did help make it feel more supple, so I will not complain. Is it worth the money? Yes. I do believe that the difference with TATCHA lies with their ingredients. They have a proprietary ingredient that acts like lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate the skin. A trademarked ingredient like this would increase the cost of the product, for sure. Can you get these results with a serum that is less expensive? It is possible. However, this serum does not cause any irritation, nor does it cause much in the way of peeling, etc. There is that to think about. I am very happy with this serum and currently I might repurchase it. 

TATCHA The Dewy Serum retails for $88.00 and can be found online at www.tatcha.com and at SEPHORA. Like TATCHA on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TatchaBeauty; Follow TATCHA on Twitter: @tatcha_v and Follow TATCHA on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tatcha/.
