Two months ago, I tried the NUDE Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash sample that I had received from Sephora in January 2015. I had never heard of the brand before (I’m not a very knowledgeable beauty blogger) but I was keen to test the product to see if it would help lighten the scars from the blemishes on my cheeks. The ingredients found in NUDE Brands Ltd from London uses nutrients that the body needs: omegas, minerals, probiotics, and antioxidants. This powder wash contains Vitamin C; Omegas 3, 6, and 9; and rose hip seed.
- rose hip and vanilla seeds eliminate dull skin and impurities
- açaí berry, Inca gold, and virgin coconut oils soften and refine skin
It does not contain any parabens, sulphates, silicones, or synthetic fragrance and colour. Having said that about fragrance, those with sensitive noses have given negative reviews for this product due to the baby powder scent. Aside from that, this powder wash is meant for all skin types.
Although I used the entire square packet (about the size of my palm), I think there was plenty of product for at least two cleanses, if not more. The instructions on the website are as follows:
- Rinse face with water
- Put a nickel-size amount of powder onto the palm
- Activate it with water (not too much) until it foams
- Exfoliate the skin in a circular motion (avoid the eye area)
- Rinse with cool water
- Moisturise skin
While the powder wash can be used three times per week, I have constantly been reminded by many skin experts to never exfoliate more than once a week. After one use, I did notice that my skin was instantly softer but not noticeably brighter. Who knows, had I not used so much, I might have noticed a change after the second cleanse. At C$52 or £38 for 2oz/60g, the cleanser/exfoliator is, unfortunately, too expensive for me. There are plenty of cheaper and effective exfoliating cleansers in the market. If price were not an issue, however, I’d say this would be a very convenient product to pack for travelling as it does not contain any liquids.
