Black Friday and Cyber Monday are looming, but many brands have already begun rolling out deep discounts for a monthlong sprint of deals. That includes Tatcha, the luxe Japanese skin-care brand that’s known for its deeply hydrating products that harness the power of traditional Japanese ingredients like purple rice, algae from Okinawa, and green tea. This year the brand is offering 25 percent off, and we have early access to the sale. It officially starts on November 21 and goes through December 1, but Strategist readers can shop starting today when they use the code NYMAG. Tatcha is also offering skin-care gifts with purchase when you cross a certain threshold. If you spend $100, you’ll get a two-piece gift set, and if you spend over $200, you’ll receive a four-piece gift set.
If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend the Rio-approved Dewy Skin Cream, which she loves for makeup prep: “It gives me the glowy skin base of my dreams and makeup glides over it like a dream.” It’s packed with lots of good-for-skin ingredients like antioxidant-rich Japanese purple rice, algae, and hyaluronic acid. When combined, it protects skin from environmental stressors while also delivering a healthy dose of hydration. At $69 a jar, it’s definitely on the pricey side for a moisturizer (more expensive than, say, a tub of CeraVe), but with the discount, it’s a more palatable $52.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
