TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist – Eloquently Impressive

Ever since TATCHA launched this product, I said to myself, “I gotta have this!”.

How can I not say yes to this:

A silky liquid spray on moisturizer of Squalane, Red Algae and our HADASEI-3 complex can be misted for a boost of soothing hydration, resulting in dewy, luminous skin anytime, anywhere.

“Silky liquid spray on moisturizer”, are you kidding me? I’m sold.

Presenting, TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist.



In my opinion, TATCHA definitely has one of the best packaging designs in the beauty industry. Look at that, it has an ochre grosgrain ribbon as a tab to pull out the box housing the product inside. The bottle is wrapped with (what I believe to be) a Japanese washi paper with a description of the product printed on it. Inside, Dewy Skin Mist is encased in a lilac glass bottle with gold detailing.

It honestly feels like opening a birthday present every time I receive a TATCHA product.


One of the key ingredients of Dewy Skin Mist is Red Algae that’s harvested in Okinawa. This Okinawan Red Algae is a moisture magnet that will retain and pulling moisture into the skin, keeping it hydrated. Go ahead and watch the video to see some serious magic of this ingredient (starts at 4:48-ish).

It’s not just a regular face mist. I didn’t expect such potency in a such simple product. The milky emulsion works as a ‘light moisturizer’. It feels incredibly lightweight on the skin, almost like nothing, yet it gives effective moisture into the skin. It’s an unusual experience for me.

To use, shake the bottle gently, no need be rough with it. Then spritz 1-2 times on the face (with the eyes closed, of course) and the mist will sink into the skin in almost no time at all. Part of it is because the mist is exceptionally fine and it disperses the product effortlessly and so evenly across the face. I never feel that “overly-concentrated area” and having to spread out the product manually.

Before this, I thought my Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist is the finest mist I’ve tried so far, but TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist trumps it by miles and miles. And this is saying something because Shu Uemura’s is water and TATCHA’s a liquid moisturizer, therefore it’s slightly more viscous than just regular water. Yet, TATCHA’s mist manages to distribute the liquid so much finer.

tatcha-luminous-dewy-skin-mist-4That gorgeous mist.

Within seconds of application, I can feel that the moisture in my skin increases. My skin feels rejuvenated and it stays there for hours. And before I know it, I was left with dewy skin. Not too dewy, but there’s that certain luminosity on the skin that we all crave for. That healthy, glowing skin. I like to use it on top of my regular moisturizer OR as a moisturizer’s substitute when I’m in a hurry OR on top of my makeup during the day. This is not a toner so it shouldn’t be used as one.

I did this little experiment where I blot my 6 hour-makeup really good down to a matte finish and spritz Dewy Skin Mist couple of times. When I touched my face, it became soft and silky. When I look at myself in the mirror, the glow is back! Nifty stuff. Really though, for me 2 spritz is enough. If I use more than that, my skin will look overly dewy-borderline-oily. That’s a fine line I’m not willing to step across.

I think people with dry to combination skin will appreciate TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. Or, when you’re entering the fall and winter season. I’m going for a trip overseas soon and I can’t wait to carry this and test it out! Will give an update.

At USD 40 for 40 ml, some might say it’s on the expensive side. But, with the little amount per use, it’s going to last me for a long time and I don’t use it everyday either. And you can bet I will reuse the bottle. If there’s anything that I wish I could add into this product, that would be the cooling sensation. It’ll add something extra to the whole experience, me thinks.

Now, if the Red Algae in Dewy Skin Mist works well already, I could only imagine the amazing wonders of Deep Hydration Firming Serum (update: I have the review!) *never ending lemmings*

What can I say, I am a sucker for all things hydrating :)


  1. my skin tends to get a bit on the dry side at this time of the year, so I guess I would love this one! well, I had my eyes on it from quite a while, since I’m nuts over face spritzers-moisturizers-thingies – which I own quite a lot! great review lovely! lots of xx

  2. Hi there, aku abis “kepoin” blog kamu ^_^ and as always, post kamu soal tatcha bikin mupeng haha. aku tertarik tapi muka aku oliy.. gak parah sih oily-nya gak kayak kilang minyak gitu.. but still kalau udah sore-malem muka agak mengkilap.. Nah kalau aku pakai ini.. menurut kamu bakal jadi over oily gak yah? dan kalau pakai ini hanya untuk moisturizer saja (abis itu gak pake moisturizer saja) is it okay? atau tambah bagus kalau ini dipakai sehabis moisturizer yg lain? And you did mentioned about Shu Uemura facial mist.. boleh tahu yang mana yang kamu pakai? boleh share sedikit review soal dia? Aku jadi penasaran juga sama si deepsea water facial mist.. karena itu air..I think it will works on my oily skin..


    1. Hi there,

      Thank you for reading :)

      To be honest, I can’t say what will be the result on you. Tatcha also states Dewy Skin Mist is ideal for dry and combination skin and I find that to be true, because my skin sits in between these two categories. Tapi balik lagi, skincare itu cocok-cocokan kok. What works for me might not work for you, even if we have similar skin type. Skincare is very personal.

      I personally wouldn’t compare Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial mist apples-to-apples because they are completely different products. On the review, I only compare the quality of the mist feature. As far as performance, I used to use Shu as a toner after cleansing and to refresh the skin in general during the day. But it is not a moisturizer per se. But water is water and everyone can benefit from it :)

      Kalau dari pertanyaanmu sepertinya kamu lagi cari moisturizer kah? Kalo iya, I’d suggest to find an actual moisturizer that suits your skin’s needs, Tatcha Moisture Rich Silk Cream, perhaps?

      Dewy Skin Mist is more like a hydration booster and it’s optional. I do sometimes use it as moisturizer’s substitute, but that’s only when I’m in a hurry and I still use a toner and serum underneath. Tapi sehari-harinya aku masih pakai regular moisturizer kok. Tatcha’s more like for on-the-go, a quick fix whenever I need the extra hydration.

      I hope this answers you :)


      1. Hmm I get it now.. I think i’ll hold myself with this one.. I dont want to spend $48 just to make my face looks more oily hehe.. However, kalau ada travel size-nya.. I’d love to buy it haha.

        Actually, I’m not looking for moisturizer .. I’m currently hunting for face mist (other than the famous Avene) :)


        1. Tatcha does sell Dewy Skin Mist in travel size, you can get this one first if you’re curious :)

          Ah, I use Avene too, I mix it with my face oils. Benernya aku suka banget yang Shu ini, especially the Rose scent, it’s so calming. Tapi ya harganya lumayan sih hehe. I definitely love the mist better than Avene. I can’t reuse the bottle though, sadly :/


          1. oh ada travel size-nya? kemarin aku buka web-nya.. gak ngeh ada si travel size hehe.. about Shu.. masuk banget dia di wishlist aku hehe :) wah baru tau aku avene bisa dicampur sama face oils :O .. buat post soal itu dong.. if you don’t mind ;)


            1. Ada kok, it’s on the Travel Size section if I’m not mistaken.

              I always mix Avene with all of my face oils. I mentioned it on my Trilogy Rosehip Oil and Sunday Riley Artemis Oil articles :)
