Anyone with dry and sensitive skin knows the struggle of finding a cleanser that doesn’t dry out your already-dry skin and irritate it. The cleansers that are effective in cleansing our skin tend to be too harsh, while those with a milder formula don’t do a good enough job of keeping the skin clean.
Yet, recently many people with very dry and sensitive skin seem to have found their holy grail cleanser with the new MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder.
This powder cleanser has received a 5-star rating on Japanese online shopping portal Hommi. “Very hydrating” and “moisturising” are words that reviewers have used to describe it. One reviewer on beauty review website Cosme Perks said, “it doesn’t dry out or irritate my skin in the long run and my face just feels softer after each cleanse.”
Even celebrities are also head over heels for it! Celebrity makeup artist and beauty guru Kevin Zhou from popular Taiwanese beauty talk show Ladies First called it his “secret holy grail” and “a summer skincare essential to help remove blackheads and refresh skin”.
Read on to find out why this powder cleanser is receiving so much love. Psst, the good news is that after requests from fans in Singapore, the product is finally available here! Find out where you can get your hands on it.
Why is the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder good for dry and sensitive skin?
Ever felt that tight, uncomfortable sensation on your skin after using a cleanser? It’s most likely the effect of harsh surfactants agitating your skin.
Surfactants are active agents that help cleansers do their job: removing dirt and impurities from the skin. Unfortunately for those with dry and sensitive skin, many of these surfactants tend to be very harsh and drying.
That’s why it’s important for those with dry and sensitive skin to choose a cleanser with a mild and low-irritation formula to avoid stripping even more moisture off your already dry skin, leaving it all red and irritated.
Instead of harsh surfactants, the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder contains enzymes to act as a natural exfoliator. These enzymes break down keratin protein in dead skin cells so they can be easily removed from the surface of your skin. The gentle exfoliation also helps unclog your pores and reduce excess sebum on your face without stripping off natural oil and moisture.
With such an effective cleansing and exfoliating power, you would be surprised to know that the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder has a very mild and low-irritation formula.
Developed by a derma company, this cleanser has been thoroughly tested to be safe for dry and sensitive skin, even with continuous usage. It is formulated without paraben, alcohol, fragrance and colourant, and is weakly acidic to suit the natural pH level of your skin. A sensitive-skin girl’s dream come true, indeed!
Rich in amino acids
When it comes to skincare for dry skin, we often think of thick and rich moisturisers. However, to adequately replenish dry skin, moisture needs to come from the entire skincare routine, not just the very last step. And, yes, that includes your cleanser!
The MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder contains eleven types of amino acids, which keeps the outer layer of your skin hydrated and supports the skin’s barrier function.
Even though the cleanser only stays on your skin for a few minutes, these hard-working amino acids are still able to penetrate deep into your skin to replenish the hydration level and strengthen the structure of the skin, for an overall healthy and glowing complexion.
How do you use Minon Amino Moist Clear Powder Wash?
1. Pour about a teaspoon of the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder onto your palm
2. Slowly add water and lather up into a creamy foam
3. Spread the foam over damp skin and gently massage using circular motions
4. Rinse it off with lukewarm water
You can also use the powder cleanser on your chest and elbows to exfoliate and soften the skin in these areas.
It is recommended to use the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder one to two times a week to prevent build-up of dead skin cells.
However, unlike most powder cleansers that can dry out the skin if used too frequently, thanks to its low-irritation formula, the MINON Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder is perfectly safe to be used as a daily cleanser if you want to!
