- Do not use along with another skin care products that have exfoliating effects (retinol, high concentration vitamin C, AHA/BHA, etc.)
What do I think about the packaging?
I honestly do not like it a lot because the writing is a bit difficult to read and hurt my eyes a bit. If the green was just a bit darker or have the writing traced would be easier on the eye.
The bottle that contains the product is pastel green and in the same style of the box and plastic wrapped. I think this was plastic wrapped in order to prevent spilling powder afterwards.
To open the bottle you just flip it on one side and pour. There is no blocking system inside. You just pour as much powder as needed in your palm.
This contains 70 gr so this should last you at least two months if you use it twice a day.
What do I think about the powder?
Because this is a green tea product I was really curious if this would be scented or if the powder would be green.
And yes this powder smells like green tea but in my opinion not in a good way because I would like the scent to be more delicate since it is very strong.
How do I use it?
I use it in the morning to clean my face.
The best thing to do is to damp your face and pour some powder in the palm of your hand, I usually dry the hand where I pour the powder and keep my other hand damp and I lather that hand onto the powder until it becomes a mousse.
Then I apply it to my face doing a circular motion to exfoliate my skin and after a minute I rinse it of with lukewarm water.
Well… does it work?
Yes guys, it works perfectly because it makes my skin brighter and cleaner. My skin feels also a lot softer and not at all dry or oily.
Do I recommend it?
Despite I do not like the scent of this product, I will say that this product does what it claims to do and it is very good. I think that for this cheap price, it works amazingly! So yes, I recommend you this product!!
