Isntree Spot Saver Mugwort Powder Wash: I am on a mission to TRY ALL the Enzyme Powder Washes!! hahaha Or at least ones that are of interest to me. This one has finely ground mugwort leaves~ mugwort is a very popular ingredient right now, as it helps to reduce redness and rashes, plus other skin issues including allergic reactions. It contains vitamin C, essential and non essential amino acids, and is so gentle, that mugwort leaves can be added to a baby’s bathwater to help soothe and reduce any skin dermatitis. It helps heal skin issues, such as blemishes, due to its anti-bacterial and anti fungal properties. It has been known to help brighten skin and reduce hyper-pigmentation. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. This also contains papain, an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacteria enzyme derived from papaya. It will exfoliate your skin without irritation by gently loosening dead skin cells and removing them from your skin. This has Israeli Dead Sea Salt, full of minerals sea salt as well, which helps remove dirt, oils and toxin while deep cleaning your pores. Isntree is cruelty free and vegan. This has a pH level between 5.5 & 6.5 and my test had it at a 6
This is a finely milled powder with no scent that I could pick up on. I was a bit worried with the salt ingredient at first, as I have tried salt cleansers and they were pretty harsh and stung my face ~ however, this one was not harsh at all. It foamed up nicely and it is was VERY creamy and soft on my skin ~ make sure you foam it up on your hands, as to dissolve all of the powder grains if you have sensitive skin. It rinses clean, without any residue and my skin was silky smooth, not dry and this helped remove the dry flaky bits that I sometimes get when I use my retinol or vitamin C products. My pores looked more small and my skin texture was definitely refined.
Now, I will take points off for the packaging, just like I did with cosRX’s enzyme powder. These are a bit more eco-friendly in paper packets, but then it is in this big plastic container. I have the same issues here with cosRX ~ I forget to take a packet with me when I shower & then when I do remember, I have these little paper packets littering all around my shower, because I forget to take them out. Just put it in a bottle ~ if I need to travel, I will decant it in a plastic baggie. But other than that, these are GREAT. I really like the effectiveness of them and the calming care they also provide. You get 25 1 gram packets at $24.00 at amazon, which is a bit expensive, as many enzyme powder washes are 50 grams ~ but I guess you are paying for the packaging here as well
