This peeling gel isn’t your ordinary peeling gel this is both chemical and physical exfoliant and doesn’t irritate my super sensitive acne prone skin. On the contrary it made my skin super soft, reduced redness and made my skin even toned. This is the best thing you can do to your skin.
Who doesn’t like charcoal in skincare product? This is my first time to try powder wash. Thank you so much to mothermade who give me a chance to try this amazing face wash. It is cruelty free, produced in ISO facility, neutral pH, and harsh surfactants free.
ACTIVE CHARCOAL ENZYME POWDER WASH
• What is it?
It is water activated mild cleansing powder with pore-purifying charcoal and regenerating papaya enzyme without drying out the skin. It is suitable for congested, sensitive skin.
• Key Ingredients?
- Bamboo Charcoal
- Papaya Enzyme
- Aloe Extract
• Packaging, Texture & Scent?
Comes with sturdy black bottle but transparant so we can see the powder in bottle. The flip top lid makes it easy to pour the powder but doesn't spill. The powder is so soft and has no scent for me.
• How to use?
Pour a small amount of powder into wet palm. Add drops of water. Rub hands to create foamy lather. Massage into face in circular motions. Rinse well. I use this as day cleanser in am and pm routine.
When I first heard about charcoal, I am a bit afraid that it can make dry or over exfoliation. But this is NOT. It doesn’t make dry or tight, I feel moist and soft. First I have to tell you that I didn’t have blackhead before or while use it. But about 2 weeks my mother also use this and she said black&white heads in her nose slowly decreasing. She has oily skin and large pores so I suggest her to use this and she like it.
If my nose is full of white heads, it will feel rough and in the corner of my nose looks pink. Boom but I doesn’t feel that at all. It seems this powder wash do good job for removes excess oils and dirt while keep moist and hydration. This powder wash also does not irritate my eyes.
Oily skin with white/black heads will love this powder wash.
I've used the peel 2-3 times now and I'm happy with how smooth my skin becomes after using.
I'm also happy to be removing another element of micro plastics from my routine!
I have been using this face wash powder from the time I have received it. I am in love with it. This is the first time I have used a face wash in the form of powder and i have fallen in love with it. I use it as a second step of double cleanse and it removes all the remaining gunk from my face. My skin feels super clean and brightened after every use. It doesn’t even dry out the skin. It is really an amazing product and I highly recommend it.
✓ My Quick Impressions / Experiences
- Has this soft texture that easily dissolves when in contact with water
- Doesn't irritate the skin.
- There is no smell at all.
- When I use this cleanser, I feel my next skincare products apply better.
- Skin feels soft and silky to touch.
- Gives you this squeaky clean feel without the dry feel
---> The best things about this cleanser is it's cruelty free, has a neutral PH and is free from any harsh surfactants.
- Overall, this is a good product that is also a good value for your money. Since it's in a powder form, it is great for travel. In addition, I can see and feel the texture of my skin changed for the better.👏
• Packaging : 55g gray plastic bottle with flip top tube ~the small hole on the cap dispenses enough powder & doesn't allow spillage of the powder
• Texture : very fine, light gray powder
• Scent : unscented
• doesn't dry the skin ~it's quite hydrating for an exfoliating cleanser
• easy to use & carry ~especially when traveling
• foams up well but the foam dissipates after awhile
• doesn't sting the eyes
• gentle on the skin ~even if it has an exfoliating property, it doesn't scratch or cause microtears on the skin in anyway
• use it your own way ~Yes! You heard it right. Did you know that because it is in a powder form you can use it depending on what type of cleanser you like just by adjusting the amount of water or powder. Bonus: it can also be used as a mask pack 😉
• I thought it is an exfoliator ~why is this a con? It says on the packaging that it exfoliates so I assumed it would be the normal exfoliator that is supposed to be used a few times a week only. 😅 Okay, so no big deal here. Just saying that it ain't that straight forward. So I was alittle confused.

Active Charcoal Enzyme Powder Wash
Size: 1.94 oz
Price: $26.00 USD
This is a water-activated powder cleanser aimed to cleanse and mildly exfoliate congested pores and blackheads. It is formulated with skin-friendly amino acid surfactants that won’t dry out or sensitize the skin. The finest quality bamboo charcoal and papaya enzymes effectively treat congested pores, clear blackheads and re-balance the skin. You can even use this as a mask! Mix the powder with water in a separate bowl and apply several layers of the mixture with a brush. Let dry and then remove with lukewarm water. Suitable for daily use, evenings and morning.
This enyme powder is super fine in texture and it lathers nicely and easily. I poured some in my hand and then added water to it which in turn it created a soft, foamy, rich lather. I gently massaged it all over my face to remove my makeup and it did a fantastic job! My skin didn't feel tight or dry. I experienced no stinging or irritation. I didn't care for the scent of it. If you have ever used charcoal powder to brush your teeth with before, then this is similar to the smell and texture of it. The scent was not strong. I guess I am use to cleansers having a sweet scent to them. This did help with congestion, especially on my nose. That is my trouble spot. My skin did appear to be a little brighter also. I am going to get my 16 yr old son to try this as well and see if it will help curb his acne breakouts on his face. I will update this post to let you know his results. All in all this is a great cleanser and I am really enjoying it!
Mother Made was kind enough to let me try their Active Charcoal Enzyme Powder Wash! I wanted to try this item because it’s like no face wash I’ve seen or tried before. It’s a lightweight powder that becomes activated with a few drops of water and keeps skin bright and clears out the pores( bye bye blackheads). I’ve been testing it out for the last two weeks and so far I’m loving the results on my combination skin. Mother Made is an amazing company as they are preservative & cruelty free and focus on quality over quantity. I definitely recommend you all check out this wonderful company.
I have been trying for a few days. First I like the soft texture and easily blended with water. Suitable to my combination skin type and also feeling smooth and clear. Thanks for the chance.
The powder is finely milled, a little gritty when dry, but it immediately dissolves after exposure to water without any precipitate. The texture feels silky and luxurious when applying I can't get enough of it! It lathers quite well.
Whenever I use this, the next skin care products would sink in a lot faster and better, it's like my skin is just drinking them all up. As for pore care, I noticed that my skin pushes out any blockage from it. It's great with removing and preventing blackheads, but doesn't entirely remove whiteheads on my nose. It dries up present pimples on my skin and helps the deep ones come to head faster. It also helped me get rid of this deep pimple on my cheek including all the trapped pus inside without having to squeeze it.
It doesn't exfolite, but it loosens old skin cells effectively without scrubbing the skin. I really love this product.
Tip: dispense the product on dry palm and add drops of water then lather, or dispense on wet palm add drops of water and lather. I find the latter is easier and less messy.
I have only ever experienced one peeling gel other than this one from Mother Made and in just 2 weeks of using this my standards have already been set high! For reference: I have sensitive-combination skin with hyperpigmentation and hormonal breakouts.
Some of my thoughts:
✓ this is super gentle for my sensitive skin
✓ I was able to use this even tho I had some active acne (cystic and pustules) and to my surprise, those were not irritated and had even calmed down
✓ a little goes a long way so even if you use this 2-3x a week it will still last for long
✓ my face feels supple, smooth and hydrated after using this!
✓ my con for my other peeling gel was that some of the balls stick to my facial hair - and I have a lot - so it was so hard to remove them; this peel gel from Mother Made did NOT do that and was really easy to rinse off
✓ its brightening claims are true; my face instantly brightens up every after use
✓ I LOVE the scent of this - it helps me calm down
✓ did not break me out
✓ does not sting my eyes
I also used this on my boyfriend who has dry skin and it worked well for him too! His acne that time also calmed down and his skin became hydrated and supple.
All in all I love this so much and I don't think any other peel gel could compare! I have no negative thoughts towards this at all because it delivered all its claims almost immediately and doesn't have any backfire on my skin. The effects of using this also lasts on me and I have seen immense improvement with my skin's texture and has lessened my clogged pores. I like to use this for a good 2-3 minutes since I really like the feeling of massaging it on my skin.
Would I recommend this? Y E S.
If you haven't tried this yet you're highly missing out on something great!
The product comes in a 100ml tube with flip cap, so convenient to use, and for sure makes my bathroom looks prettier with its minimalist design and mint green tube!
Some key ingredients:
🌱 Cellulose: gentle physical exfoliant
🌱 Green Tea leaf extract (10,000 ppm): soothing and calming
🌱 Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C): brighten skin complexion
🌱 Willow Bark extract: rich in salicylic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells
🌱 Papaya fruit extract: gentle exfoliants
🌱 Sodium Hyaluronate: hydrate and retain moisture
My experience with this peeling gel has been all goodness! Unlike most peeling gels that need to be applied on dry skin in order for the gel to form clumps, this peeling gel works well on both damp and dry skin. The thick gel starts forming soft clumps almost instantly once I started rubbing it on my skin. The clumps are small to medium sized, and do not irritate my skin at all! I like to massage it for a good 2-3 minutes before wash it off with lukewarm water. I notice that when applied on dry skin, the gel balls up a little faster though! However if you have sensitive skin, I think it's better to apply on damp skin as it feels gentler.
The result is pretty satisfying! My skin is still quite moist, but on the other hand is smoother, and my pores are clearer. It also gives slightly brightening effect. I don't think the brightening effect will last long though, you'll need to use this regularly like 1-2 times a week to maintain the result! Healthy and glowing skin needs consistent maintenance and care, afterall!
I absolutely love how effective this is! It cleared my skin of some troubling pimples within a couple of days.
Love how it doesn’t dry the skin out and it feels squeaky clean.
I would definitely recommend this product.
First thing first, I would like to introduce you that Mother Made is a K-beauty brand that focuses on producing skincare products with natural ingredients, and it's all depicted with their name, Mother Made which kinda reminds me of the theory of ecofeminism🤔
I was chosen as one of their product testers and sent this peeling gel which is enriched with green tea, ascorbyl glucoside, willow bark, sodium hyaluronate, and some plant extracts. This peeling gel promotes to make skin brighter, healthier, and smoother through physical and chemical exfoliation.
It comes with a box which has all information about the product that we need, and the gel is packed in 100 ml white-green squeezy tube. The texture of the product is obviously a gel which then balls up after rubbed on skin. Meanwhile, the scent is likely citrusy I'd say, doesn't lingers whatsoever so it's really fine.
Upon application, I am really impressed by how fast the gel turns into balls. It takes only a few seconds and it matters because I am such an impatient gurl ㅋㅋㅋ it performs very gently while I am rubbing it on my skin. There's no sensation such as sting, burning, or whatsoever, my skin simply loves this peeling gel. After I wash it off, I can immediately notice that it smoothes and (temporarily) brightens my skin. This product also doesn't dry out my skin which is really good.
So I have been using this for more than a week now, my brother had active zits which visibly reduced and I had a few tiny bumps on my forehead and chin and they seem like pretty gone. The best part, the formula is so good to dry out active zits and pimples + it works on pores too, clears excess oils and makes the skin texture look smooth. 100% recommend it for someone with oily sensitive skin like mine and for those too who are consistently troubled with acne and zits!
After years of trying different types of cleansers and exfoliants I learned that not only are most of them harsh, but they often cause more harm to the skin by damaging the skin’s barrier.
However Mother Made’s 𝗘𝘅𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗔𝗾𝘂𝗮 𝗣𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗚𝗲𝗹 is a gentle but effective product which classifies as both a chemical and a physical exfoliant. The hyaluronic acid and trehalose help to hydrate and retain the skin’s moisture protecting it against dryness. The Vitamin C helps to brighten the skin. Whereas the green tea helps to soothe and calm irritated skin. Finally the allantoin helps to make the skin smooth and soft.
Almost immediately after I started massaging the gel onto my skin I noticed it pill and transform into a physical exfoliate. It has a light and refreshing lavender oil scent which is very calming. What sets this apart from others is that I completely and 100% have only wonderful things to say about this product! No cons at all! The first thing I noticed after using this was that immediately my face felt so clean, soft and smooth! I can tell my skincare is applying much nicer onto my skin and absorbing faster into my skin. Although recommended to use 1-3 times a week the gel is so gentle that I found myself using it more often than that. I highly recommend this to anyone including those with sensitive skin!
Thank you Mother Made for creating a new favourite in my skincare routine!
The texture is like a thick gel (it's a peel gel, duh!) and for me it has a mix of floral and fruity scent to it, which I believe it comes from Lavender EO and some fruit extracts. When I rubbed it on a dry skin, this will clump as well as applying on a damp skin.
So, I used it by applying on a dry skin, and it clumps as I'm rubbing it off. I didn't feel any tingling sensation, which is good. It leaves no residue after rinsing. It doesn't feel slippery at all. I also like the scent, it's not overwhelming yet it still smells nice.
I usually use this Exfoliating Aqua Peel Gel with Green Tea twice a week now. It doens't irritate my sensitive skin. Otherwise, if I rub it with too much pressure, my skin would get a little bit red.
I was surprised that by using this Exfoliating Aqua Peel Gel with Green Tea, it reduced the redness on my chin area. The congestion also cleared up a little bit.
To be honest, I LOVE this! I didn't expect that a peeling gel would be effective at removing dirts. It's very gentle, doesn't feel harsh on the skin. And I like the after-rinsing effect that it leaves no sticky or slippery feeling. Now I always reach for this everytime I feel my skin feels rough and needs an exfoliate.
I'd recommend this Exfoliating Aqua Peel Gel with Green Tea for you who needs a physical exfoliator but doens't like facial scrub because it's too harsh for your skin, like I do!

✨ Thoughts :
I felt a slight stinging sensation during my first use of the peeling gel which somehow confused me as the product claims to be a mild exfoliator. Then on my second use, I tried applying it on damp skin and I didn't feel any stinging sensation at all! What surprised me is that this product still exfoliates the skin even when it's damp compared to other peeling gels that only work when your skin is dry. It has a faint floral scent that I believe is coming from Lavender and Bergamot CMIIW
Tbh I'm not the biggest fan when it comes to peeling gels as I prefer chemical exfoliants better. But I find that this product really makes my body (elbows, knees & ankles) then followed up by a body cream and it makes such a huge difference! I've never tried to exfoliates my body before so it feels like I just broke out of my "old skin" now that I've tried it lol 😂 but kidding aside, we should all exfoliate our body and not just our face every once in a while because dead skin cells can also form from the accumulated dirt and sweat we have in our body which may lead to having dirt elbows, knees, ankles, etc or body acne 🙅
Thoughts / Experience:
It has a lightweight texture, the product smells nature and its kinda refreshing for me. This leaves my skin supple and soft which I really like the most. Its quite impressive on removing dead skin / uneven sebum on my face. After washing it off my skin feels calm, hydrated, smoothen and it totally brighten up my skin! Plus its very convenient to use!! The packaging looks so simple yet stunning!💚 I have no negative comment about this one because I super love this!! Thank you so much mother global for sending this! I highly recommend this one!!💚 A must try!!💚
📄 I love the idea of using a turquoise color as the packaging’s color! It really symbolizes a clean and soothing effect in my opinion, and also represents natural ingredient such as green tea as well. I also love how they packed this within a tube to maintain its hygiene.
💦 The texture is quite similar to other peeling gels, a bit runny and gooey. The scent has a hint of natural and herb scent, which I do not mind at all. This peeling gel has natural cellulose which works as a physical peel on the outer layer, and the cellulose is so mild and doesn’t sensitize my skin at all!
✨ I surely love the right away effect! As it also combines physical exfoliant with chemical exfoliant from fruit extracts, they really help in enhancing the peeling process. It makes my skin so smooth, a little brighter and clean. It doesn’t create any redness on my skin, which is a relief.
🙆🏻♀️ Totally a super mild yet effective peeling gel. I would love to use it regularly 2 times a week to make sure that my skin is clean from any impurities. And I am more than happy to recommend this to you guys too! .
The packaging is simple but striking is the first thing I'll note. After opening the product, I noticed that the product smelled so clean and fresh and truly like a fresh green tea. The product does have a gritty texture, but it is very soft and gentle once applied to the skin. I felt it was very effective in removing all of those built up dead skin cells on my face, & it wasn't extremely messy when removing the product. After washing it off, my skin looked so clear and bright. It also felt silky smooth and soft. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with this product from beginning to end.
This lightly textured gel-cream smells so fresh and clean. It is a quick skin treatment that offers both physical and chemical exfoliators in one go that leaves my skin looking smooth and feeling soft. I'm not usually a fan of physical exfoliants but this one is very gentle and it doesn't irritate my skin. I have been keeping this next to my shower and using it a couple of times a week, it is very easy to use, you simply massage it over your skin and rinse it off. It preps my skin perfectly for my serums and leaves my complexion looking even. The packaging is functional and attractive and the price is excellent!
I revived my exfoliating aqua peel gel about 8 days ago. I have been using it and so has my sister. I cannot say how much I love it. It’s a 2 in one exfoliant which is even better. It is a chemical and physical exfoliator. Gets rid of dead skin cells and makes m skin softer almost immediately. The physical particles get rid or dead skin form above and the chemical peel cleans pores from within.
The fragrance is minimal and very refreshing.
It is currently my favourite exfoliant. Thankyou mothermade for sending me this gem.
Love the color, coverage and scent!! It is a must-have item for me! Worth buying!
Such a nice hydrating CC cream. It is really one of the best base-makeup products I have ever used!! My skin is plumped with moisture and for a long time has a nice glow!
I think using a mild cleanser is a key to great skincare! Now I finally met my all-time favorite cleanser that I have been using for a month! It is a bit liquidy, but managable to make foams. I recommend it to those who are concerned about their sensitive skin and their daily cleanser.
This 2-step kit is amazing! I have combination skin with an extremely oily t-zone and clay masks are a must for me. The problem though is that despite being oily, my skin also gets dehydrated and sensitized easily. It's a real struggle, guys. I love the effect clay masks give, but they leave my skin sooo tight and dry (even if only apply it on t-zone) that I'm dreading using them. That was before I tried these facials. OMG, this clay mask is EVERYTHING!! I left it on for longer than suggested (ab 20 mins in total), but it never dried up. After washing it off, I noticed how visibly brighter my skin looked and it felt soooo hydrated. HYDRATED! After a clay mask! When they say "non-drying clay" they mean it. Impressed! The second step was the honey mask that is supposed to provide nourishment and hydration. The sheet is generously soaked in essence that has a pleasant honey smell. I left it on for 15 mins and the sheet was still wet after I took it off. My skin felt very nourished indeed. It also felt a bit sticky, but that happens all the time with "heavier" masks if my skin isn't too dehydrated. So what I usually do is start gently massaging the remaining essence until it's fully absorbed. It does makes all the difference. I went straight to bed and woke up to a glowy, radiant skin. Highly recommend!!!
