JUNO & Co. Clarifying Cleansing Powder Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Juno & Co. Clarifying Cleansing Powder is an effective cleanser that gently exfoliates the skin without stripping or drying it out. Simply pour a small amount into your hand and add enough water to turn it into a creamy lather, then gently massage it into your skin and rinse thoroughly. It leaves skin soft, smooth and gently exfoliated. What makes this such a standout exfoliating cleanser is its use of Hyaluronic Acid, and therefore skin is left hydrated and comfortable, rather than overly exfoliated and irritated. It is a really gentle and effective cleanser, and it has no detectable fragrance. It is formulated to be gentle enough to be used by people with sensitive skin, and I imagine that most skin types would benefit from this cleansing powder.

About Juno & Co.,

Our products are formulated without microplastics to be better for you and the environment. We take care of you and our planet by making our products free of microplastics. These microplastics would otherwise go to the ocean affecting the ecosystems of a range of marine life.

We upcycle ingredients. Upcycling reduces waste and repurposes material that would otherwise be wasted. For example, our Clarifying Cleansing Powder is made from a renewable plant resource. Its star ingredient is rice lees (sake kasu) extract based on Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran, which is commonly a byproduct that is disposed of, even though it has amazing benefits for your skin. By cultivating this natural ingredient with nourishing properties, we are able to reduce waste drastically, while improving our product’s effectiveness.

We use reusable and recyclable packaging. Our packaging produces significantly less CO2 equivalents by weight than other plastics such as PVC or PS. The paper boxes used to package our products are made from FSC certified material. This ensures that the materials used come from ethically managed sources.

According to Juno & Co.,

This is not your average facial cleanser. Made with antioxidant-rich rice lees extract, our powder-to-foam formula features hyaluronic acid, which gives you intense hydration and protection, while papaya enzymes and rice powder gently exfoliate away dead skin cells. Get ready for your best skin ever. Our cleansing powders are made with rice wine lees (sake kasu) extract. We use renewable resources and reuse materials that might otherwise go to waste.


  • Rice lees extract has a rich source of antioxidants, so it hydrates and strengthens the skin’s barrier while softening skin.

    This is ironic because I was just thinking about powder cleansers. I think this would be great for travel since you wouldn't have to worry about spillage. Definitely interested in this.

    1. I agree with you, Marcia. Powder cleansers are perfect for traveling. There is nothing worse than making it to your destination to find that liquid products opened up in your travel bag! This is a nice and affordable powder cleanser, and I like how my skin feels after using it.
