Komenuka Bijin Cleansing Powder

Recently I stumbled across this interesting looking jar filled with 30 doses of cleansing powder for US$18 on Adambeauty (click here) so I decided to pick it up as I was ordering anyway (the new Bihada Ichizoku hand and foot masks and the 2 new Tiffa powder eyeliners..I am also waiting for the new Freshel BB Cream).

I was curious so I googled Komenuka Bijin and found out that the powder that is made only of natural ingredients (Rice Bran, Collagen Glycyrrhiza, Aloe, Algae Extract, Chamomile, Seaweed, Honey, Coconut Oil). I know that often natural ingredients can be irritants but in this case I feel it´s a rather mild formulation so I was eager to try it out on my sensitive skin.

The Cleansing Powder is a mild peeling but foams up nicely so you really feel your face is clean.

This product comes in 30 single doses housed in a solid plastic cup with airtight cover so your packages (which are made of paper) won´t get damp which would cause the powder to clump up.

To use pour about half a package (this would be easily in your palm and massage on your wet face. Or (which I prefer), mix a bit water with the powder in your palm and foam it up a little (this makes it a bit milder and less exfoliating than the other method) and then apply to your dry or wet face.

I have to admit that the powder, when it starts to foam up, has a terrible harsh smell. Almost like ammonia! This smell fades quite quickly though still the product reeks a bit.
However I love how soft it makes my skin. My skin feels a little warm after using this, but it doesn´t feel irritated at all.

All in all I am very happy with this and will use it 2x a week as I am sure this would be enough peeling for my skin. So the 30 packages will last quite a while =)

Want to try this? All gone, sorry!

I have this too and I like it! I find it to smell like Yeast or bread like. When I bought this, I was advised that 1 packet is enough for 3 washes and it works! Great way to save up. Sometimes i find it drying, but it leaves a very squeaky clean feeling.

Wow! It looks like a instant cup noodle!!

And cleansing powders seem like a lot of hassle to me. Are they easy to use?

This is interesting..
Is this more of an exfoliator then?

I was wondering where you ordered your Komenuka Bijin Cleansing Powder from?

Thanks for reviewing this! I've been thinking of ordering it but didn't realise it was a peeling product as well. I think I would hold off getting this until summer then since it sounds like it might dry out my skin in winter.

Thanks for reviewing this!:) This has had me intrigued for quite a long time because I got an email before from a website that offers it. I didn't pay it much attention because I already had a cleanser I was happy with - didn't know it could be used as a weekly exfoliating treatment. Now I might give this a try, thanks again.:)

where did you buy this from?

I've been eyeing this brand for a while now. For some reason, I'm attracted to products with "rice" in them. Haha! Enjoyed the review and it was really helpful since I have similar skin. Thank you!

sizbelle said...

the packaging is really cute and travel handy!

Jenna said...

cute packaging and it would be very convenient to bring around. Just bring a few packs when going over to bf house.. must get my hand on one.
Are they as good as foam cleasers? or any other cleanser...?

Sorry, I forgot to mention the shop though I thought I did lol.

I ordered from Adambeauty (I have edited the post and included the link)

I love the Komenuka Bijin line. I did a review on their moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and I am sold. They are my staple products. I can't wait to try the cleansing powder. :-)
