How To Use A Cleansing Powder

I know, I know... you’ve just got your head around using water-less clay masks, and now you’ve gotta learn about the latest hype around cleansing your face with powder!

Facial powder cleansers are just another Korean beauty product that’s made its way to the west, much to the delight of skincare enthusiasts. It’s especially exciting for those of us who are passionate about sustainable, anhydrous skincare

As well as the many eco-friendly benefits of cleansing powders, they’re also fun and easy to use, handy to travel with, void of preservatives, and gentle enough for all skin types!

I’ve prepped this article to show you just what powdered facial cleansers are and why they’re taking the western world by storm. They’re totally going to change the way you cleanse your skin that you’ll never look back!

What are cleansing powders?

These clever powdered concoctions are just great, think; what do cream, gel, and foam cleansers all have in common? Water. 

Since these cleansers are in powder form, they don't contain any water whatsoever! So all the ingredients are super potent and more effective. And because they’re void of any water, they also dont require any preservatives and boast a far longer shelf life!

Just like with our anhydrous face clay masks, powder cleansers are fully customisable! 

Simply add less water to your mix to boost exfoliation or add raw honey for some serious soothing effects. The power is in your hands! Take care of your unique skin and concerns your way!

Oh, and just in case I’ve still not convinced you of the newest buzzworthy powder in town, here are a few more fabulous features:

  • No fillers or preservatives.
  • Vegan and cruelty-free.
  • No artificial colors or fragrances.
  • Combines gentle exfoliation and cleansing in one.
  • Easy to travel with, no spillage.
  • Unclogs pores and leaves skin hydrated.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Fully customisable.
  • Longer shelf life.

How to powder cleansers?

  • To use a powder cleanser, simply put a dime-size amount of powder into the palm of your hand.
  • Activate the powder with a few drops of warm water. 
  • Rub your hands together to form a creamy lather.
  • Massage the lather over your face for about 15 to 20 seconds.
  • Then rinse off with tepid water.  

Cleansing powders may sound complex and scientific, but they’re actually really that simple!

Treat your skin to our creamy Coconut Milk Cleanser!

Our gentle water-activated Coconut Cleansing Powder is packed with skin-loving botanicals that leave your skin thoroughly cleansed and hydrated.

Our surprise ingredient is zeolite minerals, which offer the same deep-cleaning benefits as our clay face masks. Its creamy lather feels luxurious - and that's not just because it smells like a tropical holiday (scented with coconut, pineapple, and sweet orange).

Offering mild physical exfoliation along with pineapple enzymes to slough away dead skin cells, dirt, and oils, and to promote a more even texture and tone. Unlike your average exfoliating scrub, our cleansing powder is gentle enough to be used daily.
