Tatcha Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream ($135.00 for 1.7 fl. oz.) is a rich, deeply hydrating cream that has helped minimize redness in my cheeks and scaliness and flakiness around my nose, while keeping the rest of my skin happy. It is probably one of the more expensive face creams that I’ve actually liked enough (and found effective for my skin) to repurchase.
I’ve had good luck with Colloidal Oatmeal as a key ingredient to soothe my eczema (for my hands and neck, I have alternated between Aveeno’s Eczema Therapy and Cortizone 10 Intensive Healing Lotion for years), so I will be making an effort to try some other (less expensive) options that utilize it to see if they’re as effective for me as this one has been.
It’s supposed to work for “sensitive skin” as an “anti-aging moisturizer [that] is rich in Indigo extract, Colloidal Oatmeal and Sophora Japonica extract, which calm, comfort, and restore skin’s natural resiliency.” Tatcha has a rather detailed FAQ on their site about the product, including results from their own consumer survey (which did not indicate the number of participants). The Indigo range also includes a body cream and hand cream (both of which are excellent), but the facial cream also has the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. I suffer from eczema on my hands, throat, and eyelids most severely, and it was after seeing fantastic results with Tatcha’s Indigo hand cream on my hands that I wanted to try the face cream within the same line.
