Of course I don't mean washing powder for cleaning your clothes Wink

I was just browsing the different forums and came across washing powders from Japanese skincare lines, so I was wondering if anyone uses washing powders and is effectiveness for cleansing the face?

From an ingredients perspective, some powders just contain powdered foaming agents - so it is the same as (or perhaps harsher than) using a gel based product.

Other types like Kanebo and Dermalogica contain enzymes which are meant to have gentle exfoliating actions. I have tried both and I must say my skin is more used to aggressive scrubs so they have done nothing for me.

I don't think they are any more or less effective, but just a different way of cleaning. Some people might like the idea of a powder, while I prefer a more practical gel or cream.

Hmm, so the ingredients are more or less the same?
I was on MUA and the DHC and HABA washing powders have 4.3+% and they both seem to be very reasonably priced and acne-prone members say that it is gentle yet effective on their skin and calms down the redness.

I think I will give them a try if I can find a reliable source to get them from.

Anymore thoughts on different brands of washing brands?

I used washing powder from KOSE, FANCL. I like both of them. It makes my face feel not dry like soap and I feel enjoyable with makeing a lot of bubble and use bubble to clean my face so my hand not touch on my face.

Very Happy I thought it WAS real washing powders for clothes. I find my Dermalogica Microexfoliant a very good alternative to a cleanser in the morning.

I think powder would turn into foam, which means it's good for really oily skin? I dunno~ =P

Laughing Yeah, cleansing powders but they all label it as "washing powders".

I have bought the HABA and DHC washing powders and other things too Rolling Eyes, from www.bobodave.com. Their CS so far is amazing...super fast replies to my numerous emails that are quite looong and they were so sweet, cos I emailed them if they're gonna stock various other things I wanted to try and within 2 days, they listed it onto thier website AND emailed to notify me too. If the delivery is as smooth as this then I will for sure buy from them again.

Will review them when I have used it!

There are just too many brands to name, but if you google Kose and Kanebo parent companies, you can find a directory of all the skincare/makeup ranges that are manufactured by them. Many Japanese skincare lines do some sort of cleansing powder, bobodave.com lists the more popular ones. Although there is such a huge range I am not quite sure what distinguishes their quality.

I've actually used the Dermalogica Microfoliant but had no luck with it (along with other Dermalogica products). I broke out from it and it just didnt make my skin "smooth".

But thanks for all your suggestions Very Happy

The DHC washing powder doesn't work for dry skin, unfortunately. I borrowed some from my daughter when visiting her and had high hopes that I could use it while traveling, but no such luck...

Hi rainbow_listic
What was the HABA washing powder like? Is it an effective cleanser- remove sunscreen, makeup, eye makeup?
Which Kose products are you using at the moment? Cos I've ordered a few Kose stuff too Very Happy

Hi flitcraft
Sorry it didnt work out for you, but its good to hear that its not suitable for dry skin...cos I have combo skin Wink . On MUA, I read that most members who have reviewed it, have acne-prone or combo skin.
How long has your daughter been using the DHC?



Thanks very much!

Hi yeah,yeah: My daughter is 26 with combo to oily skin. She's been using the DHC washing powder for about 18 months, I think. She likes it for getting sunscreen off, but she uses a makeup remover for mascara and eye makeup. I'm not sure how it compares with other things she's tried. Hope this helps.

Laughing like a few people, I thought this was a post for detergent! What is the benefit of a "washing powder" over a normal cleanser? I have also tried the dermalogica microfoliant - more so for its exfoliating properties but found it too drying.

I've been using HABA's powder wash twice now but I cant seem to get it to foam up...for those who use this, is there a "special way"?

I;ve tried adding between 1-5 drops of water to the powder but it cant seem to bubble. I've read how these washing powders make loadsa bubbles but with mine, it's just like a liquid than a foam.

I am wondering if its expired or whether I'm just not doing it right Confused

Thanks!

I have been using FANCL's wash powder for quite some years. I personally think it's the best among its Japanese peers Laughing
But as I am getting older, these products turns to be too dry for my skin, and I've given up completely.

Hi yeahyeah, I found it more difficult to foam up HABA's wash powder, compared to others like FANCL's. A sponge or brush may help.

Hi rebecca

Thanks for your reply....I have now found a way to foam it (more powder and water) but I'm thinking that maybe its clogging my pores as I have a few blackheads on my cheeks and forehead and my skin is quite bumpy. So I've quit using it. Although I do like the HABA, as it makes my skin squeeky clean and not dry at all.

Once my skin clears up, I am going to try DHC's washing powder. Hopefully, that wont clog my pores.
