It’s no secret how much I love powder cleansers. So it was obvious that I’d pick up a powdered one as my first try of the brand Earth Rhythm – Nature Approved. I selected this variant as it’s specifically designed for calming and healing sensitive, acne prone skin. This cleansing buff has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and healing properties that can help soften and smooth my uber sensitive skin. Before talking about this product, let me introduce the brand Earth Rhythm.

The Brand Earth Rhythm:

“We believe that high quality & effective personal & beauty care products should be good and safe for you, your family and our earth.”Harini

Earth Rhythm, formerly known as Soapworks, is founded by dad-daughter duo Siva and Harini. This is an eco certified Indian brand based on the principle of Zero waste. Being inspired by Mother Nature, they launched their skincare line which is kinder to our skin and safer for the environment. Their goal is to create a strong brand that is clean, safe, biodegradable yet clinically effective and backed by scientific research. What’s the bonus? Earth Rhythm doesn’t test their products on the bunnies. 

Matcha Moringa Cleansing Buff:

This cleansing buff can be called a green powerhouse smoothie to provide you with a healthy and clean face. Loaded with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and healing properties this fantastic product can detoxify, brighten and nourish your skin. If you are worried about what you need to try for your sensitive, acne-prone face, you can get the best thing here. It’ll exfoliate mildly without hurting your skin.

The cleansing buff comes in a glass jar with an airtight lid. You can buy either the jar only or a set of coconut bowl, wooden spoon and the jar. I’ve purchased this set. The packaging is very easy to use and the airtight lid helps in keeping the powder in a good condition.

Benefits of the key ingredients:

1. Matcha green tea:

Being a powerful source of antioxidants, matcha green tea can help fight inflammation, detoxify the skin and protect against harmful UV rays and other environmental assaults. Its anti-aging properties can reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and thus delays the aging process. 
2. Moringa:

Moringa or drumsticks are very popular in Indian kitchens for its health and taste-enhancing benefits. We, Bengalees make dishes like “Shukto” that is considered as an amazing appetizer. This magical ingredient is also loved by the people around the world for its ability to amplify the beauty. Enriched with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, moringa protects from free-radical damages, premature aging, fights acne, improves complexion.
Price: ₹399 for 50 gms (if you buy the jar only). For the full set it’s ₹599.

My Experience:

As you can see the buff is finely milled, and looks like a talcum powder, the activated texture feels silky smooth on your skin while applying. When you activate with water/ floral water, it creates a smooth, starchy paste that glides really easy on the skin. The paste doesn’t foam yet cleanses thoroughly. My skin type is combination and hyper sensitive. It feels so calming and soothing on the skin and gentle enough to perfectly suit a sensitive skin. The best part is it’s completely fragrance free.

This is my go-to for daily morning cleansing and weekly detoxifying mask. As a mask, I use it in the evening. It doesn’t even feel like a scrub, at least as we are habituated to see. Maybe because of that I wasn’t at all impressed with the texture, at first. As days go by I started loving the product because of its effects on my skin. While rubbing it on the face, it doesn’t feel harsh, yet exfoliates well. The starch powders in the cleansing buff absorb excess oil without leaving the skin much dry. That’s why I found this helpful as the morning cleanser to remove the oily residue from the night ritual. It reveals a clear and fresh skin and doesn’t cause any rash or itchiness. If you have acne, use this. It’ll help soothe and calm the inflammation. It’s suggested not to use on active or cystic acne. 

Double cleansing, right? Yes, it can be used as the second cleanser (the water-based one). The buff will clean dirt, de-tan your face, leaving it soft and plump. 

Pro tip:

  1. Use it once in a day to avoid over-exfoliation.
  2. Never massage with too much pressure. Thus you can avoid damaging the skin.
  3. If you have excessively dry skin, activate the powder with milk.
