Powder Cleanser - Instructions


*Before applying any of our cleansers to your face, we suggest following our mixing instructions and testing a small amount on the back of your hand. If you have eczema, psoriasis or any other skin inflammation or condition, we strongly encourage you to test our cleansers on your hand first! If your skin becomes irritated or sensitive, please do not apply it to your face and instead give it to a friend.

Step 1. Gather your supplies

You will need your powder cleanser and water. If you have hair that could get in your face, make sure to tie it back or put on a headband.

Optional: Some people like to use a small spoon to scoop out the powder cleanser, but it’s totally optional and up to you! I like to directly pour out a small amount into my palm, without touching the powder.

Step 2. Measure and mix

Pour 1/2 tsp of powder cleanser and a few drops of water into your hand. Mix together until it becomes a paste. The cleanser paste should be a little gritty, but still spreadable. Note that it *will not foam* because there are no foaming agents added to the formula!

*If you don't have a measuring spoon, 1/2 tsp is approximately a generous pinch. It's bigger than you think!

If it's too dry or thick, add a few more drops of water and mix until you get the right consistency. If it's overly watery, add a pinch of powder cleanser and mix until you get the right consistency.

Step 3. Massage it in

Using your fingers, massage the cleanser into your skin with an upward motion. Avoid your eyes and nostrils!

Step 4. Wash it off

Gently wash off the cleanser with warm water until you have removed all of the paste. If you don’t want to wash it off in the sink, you can also wash it off in the shower!

Step 5. Apply your skincare routine

Dry off, follow your regular skincare routine, and keep on being awesome!

Our powder cleansers are gentle enough for everyday use. If you wear makeup, we suggest using a makeup remover before cleansing, in order to get all of your makeup off! No seriously, please make sure you remove all of your makeup every day.
