Review: Kose Infinity Cool Face Powder

Omg this is one product that I’ve been having fun playing with. Like Superman (who’s not a bird or a plane) – this one’s not a makeup powder nor a skincare liquid serum. Instead, it’s a two-in-one powder serum. Like woah, mindblown. The concept of dusting on my skincare (versus slathering it on in liquid form) is rather interesting, no?

I say…

  • The tub comes with rather large circles to dispense the powder, which I do so by tapping the sides.
  • Unfortunately, the holes are rather large , so I end up with a mushroom-shaped plume of powder most of the time.
  • There’s no scent to the powder.
  • Upon initial application – here’s where you go “oooh” and “aahh” – it instantly cools your skin down. Just swipe the brush gently over the skin, and it feels like you’ve brushed damp bristles over your skin (but your skin is still dry).
  • It leaves my skin feeling matte and velvety.
  • However, since this is marketed as an 80% serum content, I take it to mean that it’s supposed to be more skincare than an actual makeup powder.
  • The recommended application technique is as the last step of your skincare and head to bed with it. Thus far, I haven’t seen any particular improvement in my skin texture nor hydration levels.
  • I have also tried applying it as a finishing loose powder, but find that it doesn’t do anything in terms of extending the wear time, nor increasing the hydration levels.
  • It does, however, brighten the skin very so slightly.
  • In addition, I’ve also heard from my adorable geeky friend Musicalhouses that one of its ingredients – aluminium chloride – isn’t the best for your body, so refrain from inhaling too much of it during application.

It’s great for cooling down your skin on hot days – kinda like an instant-cool thingy, (plus, it leaves no white residue) , but somehow, I’m not feeling this product as an actual skincare item. But it still is a novelty item.  For hydrating my skin, I’m still sticking to my Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate (as a serum) and CNP Laboratory Propolis Deep Moisture Pack (as a sleeping pack).
