Korean goodies: I belivyu Powder Wash Vitamin Face Cleanser review

I love Korean skincare cause the manufacturers never fail to surprise. 
Today I want to review I belivyu Powder Wash Vitamin Face Cleanser. Powder cleanser? Yup, no mistake here. 
My first question was about the point of this innovation. Aren't gels and lotions good enough? Yes, they are, but I did notice a selling point in a powder wash, even though I don't think I'm going to explore more powder wash options.

So what you get is something that looks and feels like washing powder. You mix it in the palms of your hands with a drop of water and once you start massaging your face the granules start to melt and produce foam. The product is easy to rinse, doesn't leave any residue and makes my skin feel soft and simply clean.

The product turned out to be a massive positive surprise for me. The granules do some kind of mild exfoliation job and what's more, contrary to what you might expect from a powder, this product feels far less drying on my skin than gel cleansers. I even dare say that my oily skin felt properly moisturised and didn't ask for a face cream.

The packaging is really pretty. It's a milk glass bottle with a cork which looks lovely in the bathroom, but can be messy and it's less convenient than, say, a bottle with a pump.

I don't travel often by plane, but if I did, especially with hand luggage only, I would go for this cleanser each time I travelled as powder products can be taken on board without any limitations, and this is the greatest selling point for this kind of product in my opinion.

The product contains vitamins, granol particles, papaine enzymes, macadamia and olive oils.
