A smoothing balm primer that creates a barrier to increase the longevity of makeup while keeping it out of skin, minimising clogged pores and breakouts.

Additional Information

The MECCA view:

Infused with Tatcha’s signature superfood blend Hadasei-3TM, this primer instantly smooths uneven skin texture, pores and fine lines and colour corrects. It creates a protective barrier to keep makeup out of pores and repels against pollutants and environmental aggressors. Providing a beautiful silky base, makeup glides on more evenly and last longer, minimising excess shine with a soft focus finish.

Key ingredients:
Silk extract: instantly diminishes the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Pink and gold pearl: corrects uneven skin tone and blurs discolouration.
Hadasei-3TM: an anti-ageing trio of Japanese superfoods green tea, rice and algae that restores a natural, youthful glow to skin. 

Made without:
Parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulphate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA and TEA.

Pair it with:
Tatcha – The Water Cream
Tatach – Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
Too Faced – Born This Way Foundation

From the shop floor:
“I like to use this a spot primer to smooth and blur where I have uneven texture or want to mattify, even if I'm not wearing any makeup.” – Sally, senior artist

Glide the spatula across the top of the balm to pick up a grain-of-rice-sized amount. Using finger tips, massage primer into the skin, focusing on uneven texture, pores and fine lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing protective primer I've been using this almost everyday now over my moisturizer and sunscreen. It truly does protect your skin and I've not broken out since introducing the primer into my makeup routine. You do have to wait a few minutes though after moisturizer and sunscreen to apply this, otherwise it will pill. I like to warm the product up then pat into the skin. Makeup stays put and looks flawless all day. Great for blurring on no makeup days too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must own this!! This primer is THE ONLY one that I’ve found to be legitimately effective. Don’t waste ur money buying multiple primers and end up spending more then this one. Yes it’s pricey, but trust me when I say this primer will work for you and make your makeup look 10x better..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product This really does give you a silk canvas to apply your makeup over and has the most beautiful fresh scent. Very light on your skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not too bad I do like the product and it does help my pores look smaller and my skin smoother but i do have a few issues. Most of the time it would pill like crazy, over Sunscreen or without Sunscreen in general, and it would stick to my dry spots even though I only use a tiny amount. I still like this product but it can be hit or miss with the outcome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love I’d seen so many good reviews about this product and was sceptical! I have rather oily skin and usually by the end of the day I’m one big blob of oil and my make up has melted off. It feels so smooth on your skin and the makeup just glides right on, I only needed to use half the liquid foundation I would normally use! Makeup stayed in place all day and oily skin was definitely reduced!! Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels amazing! I grabbed this when I was buying a few other tatcha products and as usual tatcha does not disappoint. The packaging is so cute and clever with a scraper that allows you to not only get the product hygienically but measures out the quantity needed so minimising wastage and a little goes a long way! It blends in beautifully on top of my serums and moisturisers, it doesn’t help control the oiliness as much as other primers but it definitely creates an amazingly smooth base

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I was looking for something that would help to blur my 43-year-old skin's old acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and general mature skin texture. I had no idea where to start. I read lots of reviews about primers for mature skin, and based on the rave reviews, decided on Tacha's The Silk Canvas Protective Primer. I am so glad I bought it, despite its considerable cost for just a primer. It's like a filter in beautiful, luxurious packaging. If you have texture, you're self-conscious about it, and money isn't a big consideration, this is a great makeup product to use alongside your skincare (retinols, etc). If you're on a budget, you can probably find a silicon primer that does much the same thing, sans the luxurious and psychologically appealing packaging and experience of using it.

After. All your products like sunscreen and moisturiser should be applied and fully dried before putting this on.
