Tatcha water cream - spf?

I have a pretty good routine- wash with Origins checks and balances, apply Milk sunshine oil w/ c & squalane serum then moisturize.

I recently got Tatchaโ€™s water cream as a sample, loved it and bought a large one. 
Is there any spf in this? I donโ€™t think there is but I really love this product. What should I do? Would I apply a sunscreen before or after? What can I incorporate to help protect my skin from the sun without giving up the products Iโ€™m using?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Re: Tatcha water cream - spf?

@MrsV0418  No, there are no UV blockers in Tatcha Water Cream. Products containing UV blockers will say so on the front label: youโ€™ll see โ€œSPF [number].โ€ Usually the words โ€œsunscreen,โ€ โ€œsun protection,โ€ or โ€œsun blockโ€ will also appear on the front label. 

You can probably use any sunscreen with that moisturizer. Apply sunscreen over moisturizer and under any makeup; sunscreen should be your last daytime skincare step. Make sure the sunscreenโ€™s SPF is at least 30. Apply it generously to ALL skin exposed to sunlight (eyelids, ears, behind ears, hairline, nape of neck, etc.)โ€”and I do mean generously. Most people donโ€™t apply enough. Itโ€™s better to over apply than under apply, and thereโ€™s no such thing as โ€œa little goes a long wayโ€ with sunscreen.


Also, you should reapply every couple hours; sooner if youโ€™ve sweat a lot or gotten wet. You can reapply an invisible sunscreen over makeup if youโ€™re careful. When wearing makeup, I use a flat sponge round to reapply Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ while on the go. 

Which sunscreenโ€™s best for you depends on personal preference. Chemical and mineral sunscreens work mostly the same way, so one typeโ€™s not better than the other in that respect, regardless of some people/brandsโ€™ fear mongering of chemical sunscreens. Never rely solely on a foundation that contains SPF: youโ€™re not likely to apply nearly as much of that product as you need for adequate sun protection.

Hi, @MrsV0418 !  I love Tatcha The Water Cream Oil-Free Pore Minimizing Moisturizer 1.7 oz / 50 mL #!  No, it does not have spf.  A separate spf would be the last step in your routine (use after your moisture).


I have heard absolutely awesome things about Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ .  It even works as a makeup primer.

Thank you! Definitely gonna check that out!!
