Tatcha Rice Wash: The Original Cleansing Ritual

The Tatcha Rice Wash Skin Softening Cleanser is a pH-neutral, daily cream cleanser meant to gently wash away impurities without stripping the skin but leaving it hydrated, feeling soft, and luminous.

The inspiration for this product dates back centuries when Japanese women repurposed the milky water left over from rinsing rice for cooking to use in their beauty rituals! Fun fact, the practice is still done by some to this very day!

Does The Cleanser Work?

According to the many that have tried and used the Soft Cream Cleanser, it’s an absolute must-have! Aside from its being extremely gentle on the skin, it cleanses amazingly and to top it off has a delightful citrusy smell!

The cleanser has a cream-to-foam formula. Usually, I’m not a fan of foam formulas, but those who have used this have said it’s not stripping at all, yet at the same time it gently exfoliates the skin without irritating it. The more I hear about it, the more I need to try it!

The Soft Cream Cleanser will leave your skin clean, soft, smooth and extremely hydrated. What more could you want from a cleanser?!


The Tatcha The Rice Wash Skin Softening Cleanser is available in a 120 mL / 4.0 oz size for $38 or roughly around £30. It comes in a smooth, glossy, squeeze tube bottle with an ombre mix of lilac and muted indigo colours. 

Ingredients & Formula

It’s described as being a source of vitamins A, B2, B12, and E for deep nourishment and anti-ageing benefits.

It’s formulated with the following key ingredients:

  • Japanese Rice Powder

This ingredient is used in classical Japanese cleansing rituals and naturally softens and boosts luminosity while keeping your skin well moisturized.

  • Okinawa Algae Blend + Hyaluronic Acid

This is a special blend of Okinawa algae and hyaluronic acid that captures water to help replenish the skin’s natural moisture reservoir, immediately leaving skin soft, comforted, and deeply nourished.

It also helps to replenish ceramides to ensure optimum skin barrier function, aiding in the reduction of future moisture loss. It aims for skin that is visibly smooth and plump with hydration.

  • pH-Neutral Amino Acid-Base

The gentle base removes impurities without stripping the skin of its natural and essential oils. Unlike most pH-neutral cleansers, this formula foams into a creamy lather, leaving skin silky, smooth, and well-moisturized.

This key ingredient also helps to balance the pH level of the skin, which helps the skin function properly!

My Thoughts

The Tatcha Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser looks and sounds very tempting! Eventhough it’s on the pricier side, it has so many positive attributes to it, that honestly, I think it’s worth the price! It’s a good quality product with good quality ingredients and you know you’re getting what you pay for.

Even if you’re not sure, your skin will thank you later! If you want an affordable cleanser that works amazingly you need to check out the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil! I can’t recommend it enough!
