Real talk: you truly haven't lived until your liquid face cleanser explodes in your luggage mid-flight and makes you question what you did to deserve this kind of cruel punishment. But leakage no more! The new Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Cleansing Powder is here to save the day — yes, you read that right — powder. Sprinkle on and jetset in comfort.
Harnessing the power of bamboo charcoal, Origins Cleansing Powder purifies the skin by drawing out dirt, toxins and impurities. Also on the ingredient list? Walnuts — for gentle exfoliation and buffing away those dead skin cells. Your pores will thank you.
So, what's exactly the lowdown with powder cleansers? For one, usage is smooth and simple: pour desired amount into hands, add water, rub into lather, massage onto face, and rinse. Reviewers on Sephora especially liked the ability to control the degree of exfoliation based on their skin needs — add less water for a deep exfoliation or more water for a gentle cleanse. It's a game changer on the beauty front.
For an ultimate pore detox, Origins recommends using the Cleansing Powder once a day, then following up with the Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Face Mask once to twice a week.
Get ready for rejuvenated skin — sans spillage and liquid mess. As for me, I feel relieved that I can now travel in peace with a face cleanser that does wonders (and one that won't combust while on a seven-hour flight to London).
