Powder Cleansers To Try

While there are countless cleansers to choose from, we usually know that whatever formula we pick will come in a gel, foam, or cream version. We might even expect it to come in an oil. But a powder? Not really. Our mindsets could soon change because more and more powder cleansers are being launched. The benefit is that they exfoliate skin while gently cleansing, and you can pop them in your bag without the fear or them smashing and leaking everywhere. 

Formula A Exfoliating Micro Powder
