Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter [Review] by Victoria Huynh on Dec 2, 2016

8
Winter is coming and that probably means extra hot showers and dry skin. I was hoping to find a more moisturizing body lotion in preparation for the cold season and wanted to see if Tatcha's Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter would do the trick. After using it for a month, here is what I found:

Background/Claims
Product description from Sephora:

"An antiaging, nourishing cream for the body, rich in anti-inflammatory indigo and silk. The stems, leaves, and petals of the indigo plant are steeped in water and fermented to make a concentrated botanical extract that soothes and calms sensitive skin. Tryptanthrin and indirubin actives help reduce irritation and promote skin's natural healing abilities. This creamy body butter contains the hadasei-3 bioactive complex—a proprietary antioxidant, antiaging complex of green tea, Okinawa red algae, and Japanese rice bran extracts. The natural blue hue disappears upon application, leaving a layer of hydration without any waxy or sticky residue."

Ingredients:

Design/Packaging

The Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter ( 6.7 oz) comes in a decently-sized purple plastic jar. I love all of Tatcha's packaging because all of their products look elegant and visually pleasing. However, for the price you're paying for a body lotion, I feel like the product would run out rather fast and is probably not worth the full price.

Color/Texture

The body butter is a lavender color and has a lightweight creamy texture. The lavender color turns transparent once applied onto the skin. Despite its claims, it leaves a slight sticky residue, but it absorbs quickly so it does not last too long.

Scent
It has a soothing indigo scent that you'll probably enjoy.

Performance
Hydration-wise, this body butter has the effectiveness of a typical body lotion you can get at a drug store. I didn't find it super moisturizing; it only maintained my current skin condition. However, I do give it credit for its healing properties. I have a lot of scars on my body, and this seemed to improve their appearance! Thus, if you're looking for moisture alone, then you may want to find something for a lower price that does the same job. If you're looking for something that helps your skin recover and reduce irritation, this may be what you need.

Availability: Sephora.com, $48
