Face powder isn't just for dusting on to set your makeup. With the right formulation and texture, it can be used as skin care, too. Korean skin care brand Amarte has come up with a way to combine cleansing and exfoliating into one step with its Daily ExfoliPowder ($35). To use, shake the powder into wetted hands, activate it by rubbing your palms together, and apply it to your face in circular motions. But here's where this cleansing exfoliator is different from the rest. Instead of physically exfoliating with beads or harsh acids, this gentle skin care product gently foams on the skin, leaving your complexion softened and brightened. The secret is corn and plant seed derivatives, which work to slough away roughness. You'll love the scent, as well: a blend of berry fruits, orange blossom, rose, and lily. You'll also love its TSA-friendly nature. Multitasker plus nonliquid equals one happy traveler.
