Finally, finally it's the new year, a time when your first thought can go toward refreshing your own beauty cabinet, without stressing about the perfect holiday gift for friends and family. And not a moment too soon, either, because Tatcha's Fukubukuro Lucky Bag Event is one you'll want it all to yourself.
But before we lay out the details: One of those words might've flown by you pretty quickly back there, so let us explain. Fukubukuro is a New Year's tradition celebrated in Japan where merchants all across the country put together mystery bags filled with unknown contents and sell them for a discount. Come January 5, Tatcha will be putting its own spin on the shopping-friendly holiday by adding a Fukubukuro Mystery Bag to any order of $100 or more. All you need to do to make it happen is enter the code LUCKY20 at checkout, and you'll receive one of the exciting little goody bags, brimming with Japanese-inspired beauty with a value of over $100.
We don't know precisely what's inside, of course — that's part of the fun, after all — but considering we've yet to stumble across a Tatcha product that we don't love, rolling the dice on a mystery bag hardly feels like a risk. What we do know is that while this promotion is slated to last a week, wrapping up on January 12, it could easily come to an end sooner if supplies run out, so we'll be placing our orders early and recommend you do the same.
Longtime lovers of the Meghan Markle-approved brand are likely already putting together their mental shopping lists, but in case you're new to the world of Tatcha, we put together a short list of some of our favorite products, in case you need some inspiration to help you hit that $100 threshold that triggers the mystery bag promotion.
The Deep Cleanse
It's hard to start a list of our favorite Tatcha products without putting this purifying cleanser at the top of it. Formulated with natural fruit exfoliants like the fibers of the Japanese luffa fruit, this Best of Beauty Award winner starts as an oil-free gel and turns into a cleansing foam that leaves skin clean, hydrated, and feeling silky smooth.

Kissu Lip Mask
We don't know if it's the pillowy gel texture or the plumping, squalane-spiked formula that's made this leave-on lip treatment such a hit, but we recommend picking it up while you can. No seriously, right this minute — the lush, non-sticky lip mask just became available again after selling out in a matter of minutes, and at one point the wait list topped 4,000.

The Serum Stick
Every time we think that Tatcha couldn't possibly improve on its skin-care lineup, the brand goes and concocts another favorite in the lab. This month, it's a game-changing serum stick — basically dewiness in a tube — fortified with Japanese lemon balm, which the brand says will help smooth lines. The balmy treatment can be applied either under or on top of makeup, for a refreshing, hydrating boost throughout the day.

The Silk Cream
Walking the line between rich and hydrating is this lush, weightless moisturizer that often tops the list of Tatcha best sellers. It’s made with a liquid silk protein that mimics your skin's natural amino acid structure, leaving behind a silky smooth finish. And as a bonus, the price point is such that it will qualify you for the Fukubukuro Mystery Bag with a single purchase. Because even if you aren't ready to revamp your entire routine, everyone can always use a moisturizer.
$120 (Shop Now)
That should be enough to get you started. Just remember that in order to snag your very own mystery bag, you'll need to use the code LUCKY20 on a purchase of $100 or more sometime between January 5 and January 12 at tatcha.com — and the sooner the better, because with a promotion this exciting, the brand is sure to sell out.
