Pumpkin Powder Face Wash Gift Set

Regular price £9.99 £0.00 Unit price per

A lightweight face wash & scubbie set.

Use daily to get rid of light dirt and grime or use as part of a two-step cleansing routine.

Pumpkin powder is a rich source of antioxidants, carotenoids, vitamins and minerals.

Kaolin clay is used in all kinds of cosmetics usually for absorbing excess oils but it is also believed to help draw out impurities in the skin.

How to use & care

Just pour a little bit of the powder into your hand, add a little water and you'll see it start to foam. Massage over your face just like you would with your usual facewash, pay special attention to the usual problem areas - nose, chin & forehead, then rinse away with water.

The scrubbies are great to dampen and then swipe over the face to remove the face wash. Pay extra attention to those problem areas to get a bit of extra exfoliation and release the daily grime. Pop them in the wash and allow to dry ready for their next use. Once they reach the end of their life just pop them in the compost.

Don't allow water to get into the bottle as this will set off the foaming reaction and ruin the product.

Why Powder?

Inspired by Tru Earth's Laundry Strips (bear with me here) and their fantastic advert about how when we usually buy laundry detergent we're mostly paying for a bottle of water! This got me thinking about what skin care products we tend to use that are also pretty much a bottle of water when we have that stuff literally on tap. Not only is this ridiculous from a financial point of view, it's also pretty pants for carbon emissions, all that water adds to the weight of the product and in turn the amount of fuel used to move it around the globe.

This is where the powder face wash comes in, most of us use some sort of product to clean our faces daily, though not everyone gets on with soap on their face due to the pH, so this seemed a good product to start with! Just pour a little bit of the powder into your hand, add a little water and you'll see it start to foam. Massage over your face just like you would with your usual facewash, pay special attention to the usual problem areas - nose, chin & forehead, then rinse away with water.
