First off I am sorry, I can’t believe it’s been a week since I have blogged! Life has just been a little busy the last few days with work, life and travel. I love blogging so it’s not that I have lost the ‘passion’ but sometimes the days just fly by and recently just haven’t had the time!
Wish Wash is a exfoliant cleanser but nothing like a traditional cleanser! It’s actually a finely milled powder that is activated by water into a light foaming cleanser that exfoliates and deep-cleans pores gently without stripping your skin. A powder cleanser was a totally new concept to me so was very intrigued to see how it would work & feel. The powder comes in a cardboard container that looks a bit like a pepper or seasoning shaker because it features the same type of lid.
All you need to do is tip a pea-sized pile of powder into the palm of your hand and mix in a little water. I was expecting the powder to turn into paste like consistency when mixed with water but instead it turns the powder into a lovely soft ‘foaming’ cleanser.
As well as naturally abrasive cellulose powders, it contains citric, salicylic and ferulic acids which are natural skin smoothers said to draw extract the dirt from your pores. Done this way, exfoliation allows any toner or moisturiser applied afterward to penetrate maximally, without irritating sensitive skin.
The idea behind the product is to gently but effectively exfoliate with every single wash, rather than just saving a harsher exfoliation for once or twice a month. I have been using this in the shower daily and love how it leaves my skin feeling refreshed, super-clean, soft and not stripped ‘raw’ like some other exfoliating products can do.
Wish Wash is available online at Cult Beauty here for £27.50
