FYI I have no prior experience with powder cleansers. The first time I placed the product on my hand, I was surprised at how finely milled the powder was. I placed a few drops of water & watched it turn into a paste with just a few swirls of my finger (you can control the consistency depending on the amount of water you add to it, it's trial and error to achieve your ideal texture). I then placed the product between both hands & started rubbing which created a creamy lather. After massaging it unto my skin, I decided to risk my life (okay I'm being dramatic) & open my eyes while there was foam on top of my eyelids. I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THERE IS NO STING. What a gentle formula! Washing off was a breeze & I didn't feel any residue or film on my face. The best part was how my skin was so smooth — no taut feeling at all!
I've been happily using this in both my AM & PM routines but reduced it for evenings only just so I don't run out of it soon. So far, redness on my skin reduced & pimples that were about to creep up suddenly died down. Overall, I am impressed with this product!
