Exfoliation Without Irritation : POWDERWorks Product Review

Exfoliating my face is one of those beauty processes that I really get into when it’s shower time.  I love to feel smooth and soft skin!! Luckily, my skin is pretty tough, doesn’t have many issues, and is very resilient.  It can “take a lickin’ and keep on tickin'” if you know what I mean.  So exfoliation products get a lot of use in my house.

I was excited to try out this POWDERWorks product, first of all, because it is created right here in the good ole US of A in Atlanta, GA area near me!  But the real reason we are here is to talk about what makes it unique and how it performs.  I even posted pics of me with no makeup on to show you the after results…ok, ok, so I have on a tinted lip balm and did my eyebrows before these were taken – but my skin IS bare!!

  1. First off, it starts as a powder form (shocker -ha!) when you first shake it out of the cute aluminum can thingy.  When you add water to it, it becomes a paste.
  2. Is is completely acid free – which is different because most exfoliants are NOT, which makes this one ideal for those with much more sensitive skin than myself and every skin type can use it.
  3. If you want a simple face product that only contains 5 ingredients, here ya go.  I checked the label of my other exfoliator product (yes, all acid based!) and they each had at least 30 ingredients listed.
  4. Smell is one of the first things I notice when using any face product, and this one doesn’t really have one. If I had one issue with it, it would be this.  I actually really love for my face products to have a pleasant fragrant almost flowery or fresh scent.  This one is slightly chalky in smell but overall, fragrance free. This is a very personal detail though.
  5. Feel wise, it’s not abrasive at all – no scrappy shell pieces here. Which makes you wonder if it’s really working, but once it’s washed off, you can tell it did. But in the softest and most gentle way.  
  6. Pricing – it’s $39 for a 60ml/2oz can, with free shipping when bought on their site.  For me who can handle the harsher acids from the drugstore products, that’s a lot pricier than I am used to.  But if you’ve got super sensitive skin, this is probably a great deal for getting polished healthy looking skin without the irritating acids. I’ve just been using this for about a week so it’s hard to say how long this can will last me, but I know if I wanted to use it everyday, I could because it’s so gentle. I bet it would probably last me around a month or two as a good guess. 
Their motto of Shake Up Your Skincare is right on point with this super simple exfoliant.  I’ve never used a dry exfoliator until now. You can click on their website here and see a great video showing exactly what it’s all about.  Become a fan on Facebook and Twitter too.  Big thanks to Leslie for sending me over this new and inventive product!!

(FYI – All of these photos were taken with my iPhone because I lost the  SD card to my real camera before taking these – ugh!!! Luckily after posting this though, I of course found it!)
