The Korean beauty company Wishtrend recently got in contact with me, asking if I would like to try out a few of the products they sell and join their affiliate family. I’ve only ever heard wonderful things about Korean beauty products, so I pretty much grabbed the opportunity with both hands and replied straight away. Within a few days, a package arrived at my door that included the By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash and a Klairs Mochi BB Cushion.
I’m going to be reviewing the two post separately, so make sure that you keep an eye out for the Klairs Mochi BB Cushion review.
‘Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash with a delightful green tea latte scent, with a hydrating finish.Consisting baking powder, coconut-derived surfactant, and enzymes, it controls blackheadswhile hydrating without tugging and pulling the skin.’
Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Powder, Lysine HCL, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Sorbitol, Papain, Betaine, Cellulose Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate
The powder wash is currently priced at USD22.00 which equals to £15.65.
I tend not to spend that much on skincare, so £16 is rather on the more expensive side in my option.
Having a quick google search, it is clear that this is one of the more affordable options for enzyme powder washes. The majority of them can be brought for £20+
The powder wash packaging is rather basic. With it’s neutral green colouring and plastic bottle, it definitely doesn’t feel luxurious. Saying this, from my experience with Korean beauty products, they tend not to focus on the packaging, but the quality of the actual product.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m really not a fan of cheap looking products and would much rather pay more for better packaging.
- Pour the powder into the palm of your hand.
- Add a small amount of water and lather the product up.
- Gently massage the wash onto wet skin, working in a circular motion.
Having to put a little bit more work into a powder formula doesn’t put me off. After speaking with a few other people, I noticed how a lot of them will stay away from powders as they don’t like the fact that they have to mix it themselves.
On their website, it also says to adjust the amount of times you use it per week according to your skin type. They suggest for sensitive skin, only use 2-3 times a week. It doesn’t mention anything about how often to use it with different skin types, so I’m assuming that everyday/every other day is fine.
Despite using this on and off for a few weeks, I still haven’t made my mind up about it.
I loved how it made my skin feel after using it. It make my skin feel ridiculously clean without making my skin feel dry or tight. It has a nice clean smell to it and it also doesn’t irritate my skin.
The one thing that puts me off getting this again is the fact I didn’t notice that much improvement with my acne. Whilst it is suitable for all skin types, it does say ‘especially for acne prone skin’ which made me think it would be perfect for me.
- Whilst it did make my skin feel amazing, it didn’t improve my acne.
- The packaging could be better.
- I don’t mind having to mix the powder with water, but I know some people dislike this.
- It’s quite hard to judge how much powder you’re going to need.
- Smells very clean and fresh.
- You can’t use this with other skincare products that have an exfoliating effect to them (which most of my products do have).
Whilst I’m not 100% sold on this, I will continue to use this. I think it’s definitely one to try before branching out and spending the coin on expensive enzyme washes.
Have you tried a powder wash before? What did you think?
