The Baking Powder Cream by Etude House is a top notch make-up remover. I fell in love with it since the first use after I blind bought it in the local TKmaxx shop. It’s paraben, sulfate and alcohol free formula makes this product. suitable for every skin type.

My experience:

I am absolutely in love with this cleanser! I have tried the most-bragged and most-sold Clean it Zero cleansing balm and to be honest, the Etude House cleanser is way better. It removes all of my make-up in couple gentle swipes. That includes the waterproof mascara, liquid lips, lip stains and my Wunderbrow brow gel.

I love the way this cream smells. I sense lemon-lavender-fresh linnen combination that is very posh. Once in the tub, the cream is white colored and when I touch it with my fingers it feels more gel than actual cream/balm consistency. Once it is warmed up by my skin temperature it becomes more watery and glides well over the skin. I work this cream in  circular motions all over my face and neck.  Every bit of my make-up gets removed off my face in seconds.

I’ve noticed that I could just wipe the Baking Powder Cream off with a plain towel instead of rinsing it off with water. In both cases my skin remains clean and doesn’t feel dry nor sticky. It also doesn’t break me out. I am very pleased with this blind buy! I will definitely go for the Etude House Baking Powder Cream again when I run out of my current jar.
