Review: Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Powder Wash

Saturday, 23 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people!! How's your Saturday? OMG! It's been almost a week since I last did a review!! My schedules are so tight right now, that's why. 6 more weeks before the semester break! I am excited because I just purchased my flight tickets home yesterday! :D

Anyway, enough babbling about my life, let's move on to the review for today, which is probably being reviewed more times than you can count because this product, along with its sisters, was released back in 2011. It's been over 2 years and this shows just how good this product is (same goes with others from the same line) that Etude House kept on manufacturing it and I do hope they gonna keep continuing cause I'm in love with this cleanser.

Now, let's go to the Product Description. 



Baking Powder gently exfoliates with its powder texture and penetrates pores to absorb oil and residue for a thorough cleanse. 

Basically, it says that this product will gently exfoliate your skin with its powder-ish texture and goes deep into your pores to absorb sebum and residues.

How to use:
First, wet your skin with water (it goes without saying that it's recommended for you to remove makeup by cleansing cream/water/milk before using this product.).
Then dispense the product onto your hands.
Proceed with applying the product on skin. I guess it's natural for us to spread the product using both hands before applying it on our skin.
Lather it up by massaging your skin for like 2 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water thoroughly.

Net vol.: 60g

Packaging:

I gotta say, the packaging is quite minimalistic, (which I love) but it's not what you expected from Etude House but again, thinking that this from 2011, maybe during that time the focus isn't really for the packaging part. Nevertheless, I love the blue hues and yes, this again has created confusion among the people in my house. If you can't find this, go look for it in your baking cupboard. 


It' been over a year since it's manufactured. It's okay. 


I just love the cap for this one cause it's so tight but easy to open and I think it's important cause this product comes in powder so in order to avoid spilling, close the cap properly by making sure you heard the 'click' sound. Oh, I love the baby blue hue. 

Texture and Scent:


It's powder-ish texture, duh and as you lather it with water, it'll turned into thick (depends on the amount you dispense) white liquid. I'm comfortable with it. No irritation none whatsoever. 

Unlike the Cleansing Cream, the scent of this product to me is like flour or thick soybean I guess. I have soybean powder shake to give me extra boost in the morning and they smell exactly the same. I'm neutral with the scent. I rather have the natural scent rather than it smells like chemicals. 

Verdict: 
I love this product so much! After using it, it doesn't leave my skin with tight feeling, just soft and supple and oh I just love it! I used toner right after, and didn't see any trace of makeup or anything on my cotton pads and I guess it's really does its job in deep cleansing! 

This product totally reminds me of my friend's Kose Powder Cleanser (I'm not sure the exact name) that I tried and fell in love with but damn it's so expensive in Malaysia! 

This is perfect after long hours in the studio which is why I bought the whole line for cause it really deep cleansed my skin and after using the product, I feel refreshed! 

Final verdict: 5/5. Love it! Will I repurchase? Definitely!
I would recommend this product to those with skin like moi, oily-combo skin, and I guess it's not suitable for dry skin but no worries, this line has the moisturizing Whipping Foam version and I think it's in red hue. Go check it out while its still available!

This product is from my September Haul and according to my receipt, I got this during Etude House Sweeties Club September Promotion for only RM19.90. It's not pictured there though. The retailed price is RM39.90.


So, I guess that's it! I'll see you guys next post!

Au revoir!
