Tatcha got me into powder cleanser with their Polished Rice Enzyme Powder, and this has been my second cleanse for many month. What's the craze in powder cleanser? Much GENTLE DAILY exfoliation! In case if Tatcha ever discontinue this product (please DON'T), I always look for a backup.
I tried a sample of AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel and had to purchase the full size.
AP: "highly effective, botanical-based brightening exfoliator made without harsh ingredients. Natural papaya enzymes work to eliminate dry, dull surface cells and toxins to reveal a soft and smooth complexion."
Tatcha: "A water-activated enzyme powder exfoliant and cleanser of rice bran, papaya and our anti-aging HADASEI-3™ Complex. Reveals skin's natural gleam"
Tatcha: $65/2.1oz, this lasted for about 5 months
AP: yellow, slightly finer grain, very little product needed to produce A LOT of foam; mild floral scent
Tatcha: pearl white, a little coarse grain than AP, so more physical exfoliation felt on face, very little foam action; rice bran scent
AP: 1/4 tsp, add water and mix into thick paste, gentle massage and leave for 30-40s to let the 'enzyme peel' do its job, and rinse
Tatcha: same as above, but double the amount of product is needed
Both contains papaya, Both contains papaya, rich in Vit A, C, E and K and contains papain, a natural exfoliant that helps to unclog pores and minimize acne and pimple. Vit C fights off free radicals that damages skin and has brightening properties, Vit A is a natural exfoliant (retin-A), and papain enzyme that helps to exfoliate, unclog pores and minimize acne and pimple. for overall antiaging, skin lightening, exfoliating and skin repair benefits.
Effect on my face:
Comparable results! Both are easy to rinse off with no residue. My skin feels so soft and smooth, and no joke, immediate brightening noted! I have tended to stay away from physical exfoliant because of sensitive skin, these two are gentle to use daily! I get occasional breakouts, but now they are way rare and far in between. I'm so happy that application of BB cream or coverage goes on a much smoother canvas!
AP: less product needed, so may will last me longer; too much powder dispensed each time! Trying to stretch this one out
Tatcha: slight more physical exfoliation felt; four different powder for each skin type, need double the amount of product for little foam action
