Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam

I’ve tried high-end and drugstore facial washes, and I conclude that I don’t mind being somewhere in the middle. Mid-range—also known as foreign drugstore products, here in the Philippines—is a good compromise without breaking the bank. I usually look to Korean brands to give me that, and my current “squeeze” is Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam (PHP 328).

5 Things About Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam:

  • I notice that Korean cleansing foams tend to have low-foam formulas, so this is already considered a healthy lather for Korean standards.
  • Skin feels clean and oil-free post-wash, although there’s a slight tightness afterwards.
  • There’s a sweet lemon scent that reminds me of yummy lemon bars instead of the usual lemon-scented multi-purpose cleanser or dish-washing liquid. I like it, because I don’t want my face to smell like a plate!
  • There’s a mild grittiness against the skin. It can already be felt as you’re rubbing the product between your palms. That “grit” is neither densely packed nor abrasive enough to be considered a scrub, so it’s probably that baking powder sensation that Etude House wants you to experience. It provides mild exfoliation, so I’d recommend this to scrub-lovers who want take it down a notch.
  • The packaging materials look sturdy enough that it could survive a few falls.

Verdict: This high-quality face wash is a good pick for those who want slight exfoliation and decent lather that’s safe enough to use twice-a-day.

  1. I did a whole month of baking soda skincare last October (I think) and it was great! It does run a bit uncomfortable for the most part but it’s the only routine that’s gotten rid of my bumpies 🙂
