Matcha has for long been hailed as a superfood and has made its way into plates but here is a brand that also uses it in its skin care.
When I was approached by Tencha to review some skin care products, I was quite intrigued. For centuries, the Japanese have been tea drinkers and have been using Matcha.
Tencha has gone a step forward illusion of skincare, we choose to not conform to non- effectiveness and curated two unique product lines one that uses Matcha for your taste and one for your skin.
The Iced Matcha Cold Blend cleanses and rejuvenates your inner body, the Essentials range takes care of your skin. I tried these products from the skincare range:
Matcha Body Lotion
This has a mild perfume and a light, non sticky texture that feels smooth on the skin. The lotion renews, enhances and replenishes the skin and the matcha creates a protective layer. The shea butter provides intense moisturization and Sakura extract boosts collagen and maintains skin health. Personally I loved the fact that the mild aroma stays for hours after application.
Matcha Foaming Face Cleanser For Cleaning Pores & Removing Impurities
This is an airy and light foaming face cleanser and has a rich, frothy foam texture. The Matcha restores natural complexion and the formulation removes impurities, pollutants, dirt and cleanses thoroughly. I loved its innovative texture that is bubbly and foamy which glides on the skin easily.
Ultra Light Matcha Gel For Daily Face Hydration
This light green gel feels soft and its watery texture makes it easy to apply on the skin. It is light-weight and non-oily that hydrates the skin as it instantly disappears on skin, locking moisture and leaves the skin with a nice radiance. Matcha reduces inflammation and for me it was again the pleasant aroma of the gel that was the winner.
