Oseque Silky Bright Enzyme Powder Facial Wash Review

I used to be a stranger to enzyme powder washes, and Oseque Silky Bright Enzyme Powder Facial Wash was my first product of that kind. Now that I’m more experienced with this type of cleanser, I’m excited to have a second bottle of Oseque to use again.

Oseque enzyme wash is an extra gentle exfoliating / cleansing product that will slough away dead cells and debris without irritating skin or damaging the barrier. The cleanser has a pH of 5.5 and no harsh surfactants. It can be used daily, even on sensitive skin. I stick to using it a couple times a week, simply because I have other cleansers in my arsenal as well.
The white plastic bottle contains granulated powder that’s really fun to play with… I mean, it’s such a great, effective product.
How to use:
Dispense a bit of powder (about 1g - I eyeball it) into your palm
Add warm water (must be warm for the enzymes to activate)
Massage over wet skin, avoiding the eye area
The granules turn into a soft foam with a pleasant smell, which doesn’t linger. I use this as a second step cleanser (after a cleansing oil or balm) in the evening. If you like to cleanse in the morning, then you can use just this - no need or an oil cleanser first.
Oseque Silky Bright Enzyme Powder Facial Wash contains papain (papaya proteinase) - a papaya enzyme which exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. A full list of ingredients is available at the end of the review (spoiler alert - there’s sake!).
I test a lot of products (the blog has had hundreds of reviews over the years); I only repeat the very special ones. This cleanser is special. Oseque enzyme cleanser isn’t harsh or drying, and it makes my skin so soft and bright. I’m happy to report that I still love it even after trying out some wonderful enzyme cleansers from other brands.
It took me a bit to nail down the exact amount of warm water to add to my palm for the granules (too much and I end up with a watery mess). I’m a pro now.
I happen to enjoy the fragrance. In general, most of the Oseque products are fragranced, but I like the scents and they dissipate quickly. Pro tip - if I plan to wear something with short sleeves or no sleeves, I use the Oseque enzyme cleanser on my arms to make them extra smooth and presentable (not that they have to be perfect for me to wear a tank top). This is worth a try if you are in the market for a new foaming wash.
