FANCL washing powders

The re-formulated version of Fancl washing powders were launched in February 2009 Thailand, both light version for normal-oily skin and normal version for normal-dry skin. Fancl claimed they can create more bubbly foam than its predecessor, as well as cleanses deeply into pores more efficiently. Skin pH formulated, gentle to any skin types.

Do ensure the washing powder tightly capped after each usage to avoid habitable humid space for bacteria breeding. The powder became slightly cakey as soon as within a minute, showing it is very well to absorb water. For any preservative-free skin care, just be more aware to strictly follow the product instruction would be good enough. At least I have not experienced any irritation from Fancl products, they have excellent product safety control.

When use with hands, roughly take a teaspoon amount, add a little water to lather into creamy foam. When use with puff, I got to pour at least double of the amount to generate the same amount of foam, thus I only use puff if I want a gentle exfoliating or stronger cleansing.

The one I bought is limited edition. The skin feels squeaky clean, smooth, no tightness but slightly dryness of skin texture when skin is prone to dehydration, else my skin just refreshing without dryness. I noticed my toner was absorbed faster than usual, not sure if it caused by the powder or the dryness. Anyhow, it works perfectly to well-cleanse the black thingy inside pores in a morning without stripping skin natural moisture barrier. Suggested for normal-oily skin.

Obviously, this is more hydrating and moisturizing by leaving a very sheen film on skin that silky smooth to touch. It is interesting that skin would be tacky right after I patted dry the face, but the skin turned to silky smooth in minute. The powder creates generous feeling-good creamy foam as well as light version, perhaps greater. Absolutely comfortable but again I feel slightly dryness if my skin is proned to dehydration or when I use it with puff, or rinse with warm water, I guess this happen to all cleansers. Anyhow, it cleanses as good as the light version, absolutely effective to cleanse the oxidized sebum in the morning. Overall good facial wash for comfortable wash in any season, this is also perfect to use either after makeup removal or in a morning.

My sensitive skin love Fancl washing powders, although they would still cause a tad dryness in dry season. On the other hand, may be I was using them for quite some time, so getting bored recently that I rotated it with other facial wash. Comparing to previous formula, I do think the new formula generates more creamy foam and cleanse better. The retail price is also increased approximate 8%. Both versions are equally good for their skin category.

Due to the mildness and contains no oil ingredient to dissolve the makeup, both can’t remove light makeup effectively with hands, but enough for basic cleansing. For my simple cleansing power test below, the light makeup was apparently only has been removed 30-50% with hands, however it can be removed 70-90% by using washing puff. With no doubt, Fancl has a valid reason to recommend using their washing powder with puff. After all you may adjust your way according to your own need.
