Enzyme Powder Wash Cleanser

”I used to shop high end K-beauty skincare like Tatcha. This cleanser is like a dupe for Tatcha’s rice enzyme powder cleanser! I love both so much but the price for Tosowoong is so much prettier :) the smell is pleasant and the powder is a good and gentle exfoliant before it turns into a smooth lather. My face feels instantly brighter and softer and clean! This product lasts forever. I’ve had it for maybe 6 months and i think imp about halfway done. Just repurchased because why not restock?”

Enzyme Powder Wash Cleanser
January 16, 2017
”It’s my second/third step cleanser and it did a good job at removing the remaining traces of oil cleanser. Smells good. Takes a bit to get the right ratio of powder to water but it does foam up well when you do. The exfoliation aspect doesn’t stand out to me but I guess it’s ok that it’s there. Great for the price and convenient to bring when traveling since it’s not a liquid. I recommend wetting your hand first then pouring a small amount and adding some drops of water to get the consistency you want. Would buy again.”

At first I thought that this product was just "trendy" because it was different fron the usual cleansers. But after reading so many good reviews about it, I decided to try, and it is the BEST decision I have made!!! This cleans my face without drying it out! My face doesn't feel tight after washing, plus it fèels smoother and softer. I've been using this for more than a month now! My HG cleanser!!!5 months ago
I have never tried powder cleansers before so this is new to me. I like how the powder act as tiny scrubbers as you massage it on your face and then will dissolve into a smooth lather. When done, it gives a soft, powdery finish (not the squeaky clean one). The scent is good - smells like powder lol. I've been using it regularly for almost 2 months and there's still so much left so I think it's worth it. Pretty much does the job. :)6 months ago
I waited for 1 month to make a review to this product. I really like the smell, it is like a baby's oil or something really mild. It is also easy to make suds out of it (just follow the instruction on this). Another thing I like is that it doesn't break me out and the reduce oiliness of my t-zone. The downside is that it doesn't brighten my face. Another upside is that a little really goes a ong way. Definitely gonna buy again soon.7 months ago
My new go-to morning cleanser (replacing my COSRX good morning gel cleanser) bec. it is so mild yet effective even if its an enzyme wash. My oily skin is really hiyang with it. Don't be put off by its detergent looking bottle, scent, and feel!! This a seriously underrated product. With a damp face, I tap out less than a 5 centavo-sized amount of powder on my palm and with my other hand add 1-2 drops of water. After carefully mixing with my finger to dissolve the mixture, I quickly lift my palm to my face and rub all over. Be careful not to spill! The remaining powder beads will dissolve on your face and the texture becomes super smooth and feels nice. After, my skin is soft and supple and doesn't feel overly stripped or dry. Perfect for travel (be sure to keep the plastic stopper after first use) and so worth the price!7 months ago
I first bought this product after reading that low pH cleansers help better absorb the next products in your skin care routine. PROS: (1) My face did not feel dry or tight after using this; and (2) a bottle can last for several months, so the price point is just right. CONS: (1) Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting a bit of the product because some of it will just spill out of my hand while I'm mixing it with water; (2) Unless you're super careful with the bottle, the lid can easily break off from the entire cap. The smell does not bother me at all; in fact, I prefer this over the scent of CosRX's Good Morning Low pH cleanser. As to whether it improved my skin or not, I would have to say that there really has to be a big difference in my skin condition in order for me to notice it, which I did not see while I was using this. I did not break out, is what I can confirm.8 months ago
First of all, I'm so amazed by the concept of powder washes. It seems like a gimmick but when you think about it, it's actually quite sensible. I can throw this in my travel bag and never have to worry about spilling liquid all over my clothes. A little also goes a really long way–I only use about a 25centavo sized amount when I wash my face and I've never felt like it wasn't enough. Best of all, I no longer feel like I've stripped my skin of all its nutrients after washing. I feel cleaner but not drier and I'm very happy!9 months ago
