[unpaid/ad/sample] When I was given this product, I was told it would be the best pore cleanser I’ve ever used. Well, I have to agree that there is something special about it – against the odds because it just looks like a pot of powder paint.

Garden of Wisdom Pore Cleansing Powder

I don’t have particularly large pores – they’re bigger than they used to be but I’m not prone to blackheads, at least, not yet. The powder is a mix of Kaolin clay (exfoliating), calcium carbonate to absorb oil and impurities, zinc oxide to regulate oil production and promote healing, and Aspen bark for anti-bacterial benefits and to act as a preservative within the powder.

Garden of Wisdom Pore Cleansing Powder

You use it by dabbing a damp pad (cotton wool or re-usable cotton) onto the surface of the powder where it immediately forms a light paste on the pad. You then press it over your face wherever you need it most (nose perhaps) or all over – it feels like you don’t have enough but you do (don’t treat it like a face mask in application level) – and leave for up to ten minutes. When the time has passed you simply rinse your cotton pad and wipe off. The result is a mattified complexion that’s soft, clear, brighter and – this is the miraculous bit – looks at though you’re wearing a blur cream. £12 very nicely spent HERE.



Pore Cleaning Powder works:

  • Pink Kaolin Clay is gently exfoliating and light on the skin. Pink Clay can help to minimise the appearance of pores, blackheads and achieve a balanced complexion.
  • Calcium carbonate acts as an absorbent to clean pores of excess oil, dirt and impurities.
  • Zinc Oxide helps soothe irritated skin, displays astringent properties to regulate oil production whilst improving pore appearance and encourages rapid healing of inflamed skin.
  • Aspen Bark displays gentle but effective antibacterial properties to reduce numbers of acne-causing bacteria that reside on skin’s surface whilst also acting as a preservative within the powder.
