HOW TO use
Real People, Real Results
I saw this all over instagram and everyone was saying that it was great for fading the marks left after breakouts. Firstly, it left my skin extra soft and smooth after just one use, and my foundation has actually never looked better! But I also saw a noticeable difference to my post-breakout marks. I always struggle to fade my post hormonal breakout marks (those red marks that last for ages), but this made so much difference, compared to my acid toner which did nothing. It faded the marks and really made the spots fade so much faster than normal. This is now a staple in my routine, especially with summer coming up, when I tend to breakout way more! Even my boyfriend has noticed a change!
Once you've used this product, you'll never want anything else. It makes your skin silky smooth.
I was so happy when I found out that Monday Muse was launching a new product since I am a big fan of their other products and oh my was I not disappointed. After using the powder exfoliant my skin felt so soft and looked all shiny, I really love it and definitely recommend it. A perfect addition to the Monday Muse line.
I've been a fan of powder exfoliants for a long time, but wow this one beats them all! The texture feels great on the skin, it's unlike anything I've tried before and definitely has a nice fine consistency, where most exfoliants out there feel slightly damaging to the skin. It left my skin super glowy and calm, absolutely love this product. 10 out of 10, and it will become a part of my routine for sure!
I used to use a powder exfoliate years ago but it was discontinued so I was really excited when this launched. It’s brilliant. My skin feels really soft and clean. It’s not as harsh as a normal exfoliant. I haven’t really used it long enough to see the effects of the skintone (10 days) but I’m hopeful!
Why do I need an exfoliant like The Powder in my routine?
The shedding of the dead cells is vital to our skin health. Factors like ageing and the environment can cause this process to slow down.
When this happens, it causes a build-up of dead skin cells; this appears in the form of dullness, textured skin and uneven skin tone. So it's important to exfoliate the skin and ensure we are aiding this process. It will also help your other products absorb better into the skin.
My skin is sensitive and I am worried about using exfoliants - can I use this?
If your skin is prone to sensitivity, enzymes are a great option!
Enzymes work without disrupting your skin’s microbiome, which means they’re unlikely to irritate or sensitise the skin compared to traditional exfoliants, like acids (AHAs, BHAs etc). Enzymes act like little pac men on the skin; they break down the bonds between dead cells, allowing them to be easily slewed off, leaving the skin feeling smoother. This product targets texture, congestion, flaking, dead skin cell build-up, dryness and early signs of ageing.
It is also a wash-off product, so you have more control over the application process and makes it a better alternative to those with reactive skin.
If you are still worried, you can dilute a bit of the powder with your favourite cleanser, mix it together and experience an even milder exfoliation.
How is The Powder a more gentle alternative to other exfoliants?
The Powder has a unique base of tapioca starch and colloidal oatmeal which are included ultra-fine ingredients to ensure a non-abrasive feel on the skin to minimise the risk of irritation. In addition, enzymes are known to be one of the most gentle forms of exfoliation.
If you have a history of sensitivity to exfoliants, we recommend patch testing and starting slowly. Start by mixing it in with your favourite cleanser to dilute the enzymatic action.
Can I use this alongside AHAs, BHAs, and retinoids?
You can use The Powder if you use a retinoid or similar treatment, however, we recommend that they are used on alternative nights and not on the same day. Though exfoliation is very beneficial to the skin; it promotes cell turnover, allowing dead skin to shed and new healthy skin to come toward the surface, over-exfoliating is easily done and negatively impacts the skin. Over-exfoliation can strip the barrier, leaving it sensitive and vulnerable to inflammation and redness.
