Hello, guys. Sorry for being MIA lately. I suffered from fever and wasn't able to go to school for almost 2 weeks. I have a lot of catching up to do! Since I'm feeling so much better now, I decided to do something new and made a review! This is my first ever review and I am very open to your comments and suggestions on how I can make this work. Let's get started.
I bought Etude House's Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Mineral Water because I was looking for a makeup remover that is not oily so I can immediately put makeup on after. For looks that will require a really strong eye and a whole lot of glitter, I need a cleansing item that will remove all the mess so I can move on to applying the rest of my makeup. It's also quite handy when it's night and I have to remove my makeup.
Etude House's Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Mineral Water looked like a really nice product because 1) It's made from Baking Powder- a natural cleansing tool. 2) It's infused with minerals and I love mineral makeup/ mineral beauty products.
Let's have a closer look at this product.
What Etude House says:
Formulated with baking powder and minerals to penetrate and cleanse deep within pores to remove makeup and residues. Cleansing water supplies moist makeup removal and skin toning. 100% Natural Fragrance. Dye-Free.
Directions: Dispense Cleansing water onto facial pad and use pad to wipe clean facial surface of makeup and residues.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Peg-8 Caprylic, Capric Glycerides, Peg 80-Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium Edta, Styrene/ Acrylates Copolymer, Coco- Glucoside, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cetrimonium Bromide, Citrus Medica Limonuim (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil
I use this right after washing my face just to check if there is any makeup residue left. I only do two pumps on a single cotton ball because it's enough to cover my whole face and neck. After using, I notice that it leaves a thin film of slightly sticky residue, but not so sticky that it's bothersome. It just gives the feeling that my skin is well hydrated and moisturized. After a while, the stickiness subsides and I am left with soft and supple skin. I then proceed with my makeup application. I noticed it helps make my skin look like its glowing. Nothing remarkable though, just a different and brighter complexion than usual. When I use this to remove makeup before washing my face, it usually takes 4 soaked cotton balls to do the work. It feels really cool against my skin and gives off a mild citrus-y scent probably because of the presence of orange peel oil and lemon peel oil.

This is a really good item on your vanity dresser especially when you're really lazy when it comes to removing your makeup at night. However, if you are looking for a deep cleansing water for your pores, this is not for you. While it does a great job removing dirt and makeup on my face, I really did not notice much difference on my pores. However, Etude House's Baking Powder line has a lot of products to offer that you might want to try and will specifically address your cleansing concerns.
