I'm pretty sure that the powder exfoliation "trend" started in Asia. On my last trip to Taiwan and Japan, every beauty store was chock full of powder exfoliators...almost every brand had their own version. Those of you who've been following me for a while know that I'm a huge Asian beauty fanatic. Green beauty has only recently become a standard in my selection process. So, needless to say, I get very psyched when I discover brands that marry Asian skincare concepts with toxin free ingredients!
I was really excited when the gals at Kaia asked me if I wanted to try their version of powder-to-paste exfoliants. What I absolutely love about this version is how versatile it can be. Kaia girls encourage you to "activate your powder" by using different oils or liquids depending on your individual skincare needs.
Genius. Kind of makes me wonder why I haven't thought of this before!
On the days that my skin needs some extra moisture, I love adding several drops of cleansing oil to the powder and when I'm feeling oily (combo skin can't make up its mind) I mix in several drops of my favorite hydrosol! Rub your hands together and voila...magic paste to exfoliate your face.
I'd say the only con is the package it comes in. Sometimes it's hard to get out the exact amount of product you need. With that said, it's definitely small and clean enough to travel with!
