Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I got the water cream as a 100 point sample a while back... and I thought that it was good so I purchased the full size. Shortly after I then purchased the oil and rice powder face wash in the smaller size. After a couple weeks my entire jaw line has cystic acne and I have small tiny bumps underneath my chin. I’m so disappointed that my skin reacted like this! I’m super oily anyways but I have never had a reaction to anything like this. Has anyone else had the same experience? And what are you using instead?

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I got the moisturize cream cause its supposed to help hydrate my dry skin complexion. Not only has it made my skin break into acne cysts but its all over my face, under my jawline and around my ears now. 

It's a very oily cream for a hydrating moisturizer.

this is rather interesting since I think I might be experiencing the same thing but no pain. I didn't think something like skincare would be so tedious

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I wish I had seen this thread before spending $600 on a ‘full’ ‘ritual’ of products... same issue - I have always had beautiful clear skin - but this product - bam - pimples everywhere - cystic clusters! I’m over 50 and thought this was my answer to soft firm skin - but instead it’s been a disaster - really disappointed. 

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

Whenever I've had really bad cystic breakouts on my jawline it has usually been from using products that are too harsh on my skin that dry me out. It could be that the water cream just isn't moisturizing enough for you. Also there could be an ingredient in there that doesn't agree with your skin. What were you using before?

Honestly I haven't tried too many products from tatcha but I just picked up the cleansing oil in the sale. Skincare is so personal and there are so many other good brands out there that if this particular product is causing problems for you just return it and move on to something else Smiley Happy

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I bought a duluxe starter kit for oily skin from the Tatcha web which included the camilla oil, deep rice polish, essence, and watercream. I purchased the primer from Sephora. I also received a sample of the vitamin c serum. The vitamin c ferum broke me out with a ugly zit or red angry bump the first night and i discontinued use. It lasted a little over a week using indian healing clay twice a day to get rid of. I cleared my skin but continued use of the other priducts and started getting similar bumps on my forhead which has never happpened before. My cheeks and chin were hit too. I stopped the essence and it cleared up. Then i tried the essence again and got a huge bump on my eyebrow a few hours later. I threw out the rest after that. Im contunued to use the primer but kept getting new bumps. Im now on a no Tatcha cleanse. I think its the algea. I always have had a sensitivity to marine life. Now i avoid products with this ingredient. These bumps are not pus filled. They are hard painful small bumps that discolor the skin and leave a flat scar. Im using the ordinary peel to combat. Wish me luck. I had clear skin before i started this regime

Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I love Tatcha products. They've never caused me any problems

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I thought I was crazy! I have never had any acne problems or breakouts ever really and all of a sudden I started getting deep cystic acne on my chin... super painful. Couldn’t figure out why then realized I had just started using the tatcha primer Smiley Sad super disappointing because it’s a great primer besides that

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

OMG YES! I just bought a full deep scrub, water, face and neck cream. I broke out in a few places (5) and they were not like a normal break out. They were so deep and painful. returning now. 

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I never had pimples. My daugher recommended for uneven skin tone. Only a few but huge. The peel is fine but the pimples are a first. Any suggestions or should I stop using the product. I am over 50.

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I had a breakout similar with a lot of red little pimples in my face but mostly in my jawline, but Im only been using violet-c serum from tatcha. 

 

I just read today in a chart that compared violet-c from tatcha and c-firma day serum that in tatcha serum said that its not fungal acne(malazzesia) safe. And Im thinking is either that or my hormonal imbalance (common shown in chin and jaw breakouts) or another thing.

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

Ok, so it's not just me.  Camellia Cleansing Oil left me with one new small pimple per day.  I rarely ever break out.  If I use Water Cream once per week I am ok.  If I use it multiple days in a row I break out in same area, same type of pimple.  I bought the full size rice polish at same time but have not tried using it without the oil yet, so we'll see how my skin reacts.  The oil was a sample.  Bummed because they feel so nice on the skin.  Fingers crossed I didn't just waste $65 on a full size product my skin doesn't like.  Will Sephora allow me to return if it does?  That's alot of money.  Lesson learned, try sample size first.

RE: Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

Sephora always has a great return policy. You get 90 days to return a product and you can return it as long as 1/2 of the product is still there. So don’t be afraid to try anything, just be sure to have either a reciept or your beauty insider Information to return it (it lets them know you aren’t trying to keep using products and then return them without having to pay for them)

Re: RE: Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

@EndofaneraADTR Policy is 60 days for a full refund. At 90 days it's too late. As for how much product is left, it's up the store, sure if it's empty it will be denied.

Re: RE: Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

You are correct, that is my bad.  60 days is still plenty of time to figure out if you like a skin care product or not.  As far as the product thing goes, my store specifically stated there must be at least 1/2 the amount of product left to return it, unless the package broke and that is why you are returning it.  I’m assuming most Sephora stores will follow that guideline as well, it sounds reasonable.

it has oven cleaner ingredients that is bad for you. propandeol

RE: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I had tried the tatcha water cream too (I had the sample size) and at first loving it on my face... then started to breakout and was bummed about it... still have some left from my sample size and contemplating if to give it a try again or not.

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I'm actually finding this thread really comforting because it just shows how individual skin can be. I initially had issues with the Water Cream breaking me out so I stopped using it... then, because I'm cheap and had loads left, I tried using it again and didn't have the same issues. Now I find it to be a good daytime option for the summer months provided that I use essence first, apply two layers of it, and use a more hydrating cream or oil at night. 

 

Tatcha is one of the few lines that I've tried that hasn't caused me to have a massive reaction but if your skin doesn't like one of the main ingredients then it isn't going to work for you. 

 

 

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

I’m allergic to something in Silk Canvas, apparantely. I’m still pretty bummed about that because I’d bought the beautiful full sized jar, and that primer felt so nice on my skin. It might’ve prompted me to wear foundation or skin tint much more frequently (I rarely wear either, especially not foundation), had it not caused rashes on my face each time I used it. Smiley Sad 

 

I also can’t use the Water Cream: it irritates my skin. I probably can’t use any Tatcha stuff... I wonder which ingredient(s) I react badly to, or which of my existing products Tatcha doesn’t play nice with. But I’m not willing to put my face through more bad reactions to find out. 

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

wow I had no idea Tatcha made so many people break out!! 


I love the water cream too, although there's a handful of similar moisturizers available.  I just ordered the dewy spray and hope it doesn't do anything bad!

 

When it comes to your acne, and everyone else's, I strongly suspect over-exfoliation coupled with drying out the skin.

 

Although the water cream is nice, it's really on the lighter end of moisturizers. You're taking oil out of your skin but not putting any back in, so it responds by over-producing oil.   I think if you use the rice polish less frequently (not as a twice-daily cleanser, but maybe three times a week exfoliation) and possibly the nights you use it, work a face oil into your routine, you should see better results.

 

Of course, don't forget about Sephora's return policy.  You know you like the water cream, but it's not too late to just return the other two.

Re: Tatcha- Breakouts?! Anyone else?

Those tiny pimples popped up on my forehead and cheeks. I use the exfoliater and the water cream.
