It’s not often that I come across a product I’ve never seen anything like before, so when Rodin’s Facial Cleansing Powder popped through the letter box, I was rather intrigued! Coming packaged in the chicest of glass bottles, the Cleansing Facial Powder means that you can easily customise the product to really suit your skin.
It’s an absolutely genius idea, which, at the same time, feels incredibly simple. To use, I pour a little of the Facial Cleansing Powder into the palm of my hand, then begin to add water a few drops at a time. On days where my skin feels like it needs a sloughing, or if it feels congested, I only add a little water, keeping the paste feeling abrasive, then I apply in circular motions. However, on days where I wanted to baby my skin a little, I just add more water, turning the granules into a creamy feeling foam which feels so decadent to use!
As well as feeling absolutely amazing, the Facial Cleansing Powder smells incredible! As the foam builds up, the Rodin’s signature scent of jasmine and neroli becomes stronger, and it is just such a beautiful way to start the mornings! The formula of the Facial Cleansing Powder consists of granular rice bran with moisturizing sea algae so it is a super gentle on sensitive skin like mine.
Since I tend to use the Facial Cleansing Powder in the morning, I don’t need to worry about taking my makeup off, but if you’re an evening exfoliator, you will need to take it off before using the cleanser. I tend to massage the cleanser for a minute or so, and I am just in love with the way it foams up, and of course, how it smells! After I wash it off, using a hot flannel, my skin feels so, so soft, and it’s the best way to prep before applying my makeup.
