Ahead, read about 10 deep-cleansing powder cleansers that we recommend adding to your skin-care routine, stat.
Humanrace’s Rice Powder Cleanser won a Best of Beauty Award in 2022, and for good reason. It’s a powder-to-foam cleanser with key ingredients such as brightening rice powder, balancing kaolin clay, moisturizing snow mushroom extract, and a balancing blend of alpha hydroxy acids naturally derived from sugarcane, sugar maple, lemon, orange, and bilberry. For those in the market for light exfoliation, the inclusion of rice powder is especially noteworthy as it’s a finely milled exfoliant that unclogs pores and eliminates dead skin cells, resulting in more polished skin without the risk of micro-tears.
Infused with a concentrated blend of skin-loving ingredients, including hydrating hyaluronic acid, soothing cotton extract, and exfoliating green tea probiotic-derived enzymes, Amorepacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel Cleansing Powder is a Korean skin-care treatment beloved by many. The nourishing formula deeply hydrates the skin, leaving it as refreshed as a burst of Liquid I.V. in your water, while also strengthening its moisture barrier. The result is a brighter, more radiant complexion that’s ready to carpe diem.
Get ready to indulge in a little bit of luxury with Chanel‘s Powder to Foam cleanser. Featuring red camellia oil and extract at its base, this softening formula, upon contact with water, becomes a light foam, effectively removing impurities and pollution residue from the skin. It also comes in a beautiful, matte-white bottle that can serve as a flex in any bathroom.
Tatcha has earned quite a reputation for its luxurious J-beauty products, and The Rice Polish is certainly no exception. This exfoliant powder is formulated with Japanese rice bran, a gentle physical exfoliant packed with vitamins and proteins that unclogs pores and eliminates dead skin cells. Plus, it turns into a creamy foam, making it a versatile choice for all skin types — and not to mention, very satisfying to use.
If your skin needs a little pick-me-up, might we suggest TonyMoly‘s I’m Rice Exfoliating Enzyme Cleanser? You only need a smidge of this powder-to-paste formula (which won a Best of Beauty Award in 2021) to bring back your skin’s natural glow. Rice powder, rice extract, and papaya enzymes work in harmony, complementing each other perfectly to gently exfoliate the skin, improve texture, soothe any areas of irritation, and hydrate dull, dehydrated skin. Plus, at just $13, this enzyme powder is the steal of the bunch.
