While we’re on the subject of facial cleansers, this Tatcha Polished deep rice enzyme powder is just as enigmatic as it seems. It comes in powder form but turns into a liquid like substance when combined with water on your face. Although it doesn’t foam up as much regular facial cleansers usually do, the powder texture retains small grains that act as exfoliant. The exfoliation is gentle enough for everyday use but I’ve been sticking to using it about once a week. Definitely worth a try if you’re into unique products.
This week’s recommendation comes from a roommate who has recently been struggling with her skin. Although she has had oily skin for most of her adult life, this past winter’s weather has caused her skin to transition between combination to dry. As most of her face products were tailored to oily skin, my roommate’s skin began to suffer until she began using La Roche Posay’s Hydrating Gentle Cleanser for normal to dry skin.
At around $14.99 for 14 oz. at your nearest Target or Walgreens, this face wash is affordably priced and easily accessible. Although it is for normal to dry skin, it could also be useful for those with all skin types during the harsher, winter months. The formula is a gel cream and doesn’t leave skin feeling tight after you leave the shower, which is a common hangup with many face cleansers.
