It’s been a while since my last Isntree product review on my blog, so it’s definitely time for another. This time I’ll be discussing the Isntree Spot Saver Mugwort Powder Wash.
• Contains 𝘔𝘶𝘨𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘵 grown in Korea,
• It’s an enzyme bubble cleanser which can remove deep impurities and keratin build-up,
• It’s other main ingredients are 𝘗𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯 (enzymes extracted from Papaya) & 𝘥𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘢 𝘴𝘢𝘭𝘵,
• Slightly acidic for healthy skin (𝘱𝘏 𝟻.𝟻 ~ 𝟼.𝟻),
• Mugwort calms irritated skin,
• Formulated with only EWG graded 1~2 (low hazard) ingredients.
Full ingredients list:
Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Palmitate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Diglycerin, Papain, Sea salt, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Powder, Allantoin, Maltodextrin, Water
This powder cleanser has received 2 𝘎𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘱𝘪𝘤𝘬 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘴 & highly recommended by 𝘋𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘰𝘳 𝘗𝘪 – a well-known Korean YouTuber, who was once a beauty editor and worked on Korean beauty shows “After School Beauty” & my personal favourite: “Get it Beauty”. This cleanser has also received some worldwide recognition awards too.
𝐌𝐲 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 (tested on sensitive oily skin): As the name of the product suggests this is a “spot saver” product – a cleanser you can reach for to reduce the redness and inflammation of general breakouts and mild acne of the non-cyst type. Of course it’s not going to make a spot vanish overnight, but it does aid and speed up the healing process to a degree.
The powder is non-abrasive – you should be able to use it once per day without any problems. Of course this doesn’t bubble like a foam cleanser, but it does give the same amount of bubbles as a gel cleansers: if lathered correctly.
The individual sachets save you from having to measure out the right amount of powder, but this honestly removes some of eco-friendly qualities that powder cleansers usually have considering 25 individual plastic/foil packets will end up in non-recyclable landfill. Other than the packaging issue which I hope they re-evaluate, this is – as I said before – ideal for treating spots before they fully protrude like a mountain on your face.
💬 Have you tried a powder face wash before? – Do you have a favourite? What was your experience?
