So if you’re read my recent posts, you know I have been testing out Naruko’s Apple Seed and Tranexamic Acid Collection
Check out the collection review –.
This is the cleanser I used during the testing of that collection and it is no less impressive!
AMPM Wakeup Skin Smooth Washing Powder Review
This cleanser is unlike many other typical face cleansers because it comes in powder form. When mixed with water, it quickly turns into a foaming wash and easily cleanses the skin. It feels very toning, hydrating and cleansing and leaves the skin clean without drying the skin out. It smells pretty much like rice, but it’s such a subtle scent that most will not even notice it. It worked very well with the apple seed and tranexamic acid collection.
It comes out like a grainy powder and then mixes with water into a slightly foaming cleanser.
Although the powder is really grainy in its dry form, it is not abrasive or scratchy at all when you actually mix it with water and apply to your face.
There are not too many foam suds, it is a mixture between a foamy sud and milky type cleanser.
When first purchasing, be sure to remove the little plastic piece under the cap!
You have to remove the lid and pull out the plastic piece to use.
I think they include this for when you want to travel to prevent any powder from leaking out of the container as the pop top is not the most secure, but given that it’s dry powder, even if it did leak a little, it would not do much harm.
Overall, I really like this cleanser. As far as powder cleansers go, this is among one of my favorites that I have tried. It feels very much like a hydrating cleanser, but it gives you the clean feeling without drying or making the skin feel tight. It just feels very hydrating, cleansing and balancing. I would recommend this to all skin types except super dry types. Dry skin types may need something more nourishing than this. Acne prone types will definitely benefit from this cleanser because it is so balancing and it does not dry the skin out. Also, at $20, this is so affordable! A little powder goes a long way so the value for the money is great as it will last you a long time.
EDIT: Sorry. this cleanser has recently been discontinued! Here’s a similar one ♥
