Renew Wellness Face Powder Cleanser | Review

Recently I’ve been trying a lot of products that are different from what you’d typically find; like toothpaste in a jar and even a powder version of toothpaste. Today I’m going to share something in a similar respect, but with a slight bit more success than the latter: a powder cleanser. 

Renew Wellness 3-in-1  Brightening Cleanser

Behind the Brand

Renew Wellness is inspired by Ayurvedic practices and embraces that herbs and minerals are the key to living a healthy and beautiful life. Thus, all of Renew Wellness products are plant-based, natural and chemical-free.

The Ingredients

I have to say, I love the no-nonsense ingredient list and have to point out that by creating this product in a powder format, they do not need to use any preservatives. So let’s take a look at what’s in this:

Green Tea, Orange Peel, Rice Powder, Licorice Powder, Red Lentils, Turmeric, Pink Himalayan Salt, Peppermint Essential Oil*, Sweet Orange Essential Oil*, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil**.

* Essential Oils are a potential skin irritant.
** Coconut Oil can be comedogenic (clog pores.)

How does the Renew Wellness 3-in-1 Brighten Face Powder Cleanser Perform?

I have been testing this product for the past month; I have tried it as a daily cleanser mixed with water as well as a face mask mixed with honey. In all honesty, I do prefer this as the latter and find that this is is just too exfoliating for everyday use.

I have sensitive skin and after a couple days of using I noticed that my face became red and irritated. Knowing that this was the only change to my skincare routine I scaled back on the use and opted to add this into my routine as a face mask only.

Physical exfoliants are not my preferred way to cleanse my skin and unclog pores. I’d much rather use a chemical exfoliant as it’s less harsh on delicate skin. However, for someone with less sensitive skin this may be a good option to add to their skincare routine.

As a cleanser…

I found that this works surprisingly well to leave skin feeling smooth. Even though the mixture feels quite rough on the skin. I used this after oil cleansing and did not feel the need to go in with another surfactant afterward. It sufficiently cleansed my face with Ayurvedic magic.

What would I change about it?

Now, I’m not going to lie, this isn’t my favourite product as it stands right now. I do believe that there are some improvements that could be made to make it become a top shelf product. Firstly, removing the physical exfoliants- or just have a smaller grain consistency so the product is not as rough on the skin.

Second, remove coconut oil. Solely because I loathe any face product that contains coconut oil due to the comedogenic properties of it. Perhaps opt for something like Jojoba instead.

Otherwise I was quite happy with the results when I used it once a week as a face mask.


I think it is important to note that these face powders are beautifully packaged in glass jars with a plastic lid. I do wish the lid was white plastic as it’s more readily recyclable, but otherwise I am very happy with the way that the product is contained.

Final Thoughts

With a few tweaks, I think the Renew Wellness 3-in-1 Brighten Face Powder could really become a product that I use on a daily basis. I would love to see a formulation that is made for more sensitive skin and perhaps using a natural chemical exfoliant rather than a physical one.
