CLE Cosmetics Hydro Blot Loose Powder Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

In my experience, and despite the fact that I have normal/combination skin, I have always found it difficult to find a non-drying loose or pressed powder. As a result, I nearly always skip finishing powders. When CLE Cosmetics asked me if I wanted to try the new CLE Cosmetics Hydro Blot Loose Powder, I immediately said yes because I have been consistently impressed by their products, and because this powder includes encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid among its ingredients. Therefore, I knew that it would attract, rather than repel, hydration. 

Initially cool to the touch, this translucent powder boasts a powder-to-liquid formulation that immediately melts into the skin leaving a semi-matte finish that looks natural, rather than dry. It sets foundations, blurs imperfections and gives skin a beautiful radiance.

For All Skin Types: Normal, combination, and/or oily skin. Can also be applied on dry, sensitive, and/or mature skin.

Paraben-free ・ Phthalate-free ・ Gluten-free ・ Cruelty-free ・ Vegan ・ Fragrance-free ・ Non-comedogenic ・ Dimethicone-free 

According to CLE Cosmetics,

We’ve created the perfect companion to pair with our best selling CCC Cream. Hydro Blot Loose Powder provides the benefits of blotting and oil control, without compromising your natural glow. Using the same technology from our Melting Lip Powder, Hydro Blot Loose Powder contains encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid, which bursts upon contact into the illite base, a natural mineral powder that absorbs oil


  • Controls oil without over drying
  • Translucent powder (no color)
  • Blur effect with radiant glow
  • Innovative powder-to-liquid formula offers skincare benefits
  • Initially cool to the touch
  • Semi-matte finish

Directions: For a natural set, dispense a small amount of powder onto the puff applicator. Gently pat down the powder evenly throughout the face. If you’re using a makeup brush, tap some of the powder onto the cap and swirl the brush to get product.

To get more product, press the puff against the net and flip it upside down.

For oily skin, dispense a small amount of powder onto the puff applicator and touch up desired areas throughout the day.

With a majority of the ingredients consisting of skin benefiting essence, Hydro Blot Loose Powder can be applied on bare face, before and/or after makeup application.

Ingredients: Water, Illite, Propanediol, Glycerin, Silica Silylate, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Adenosine, Natto Gum, Saussurea Involucrata Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid.

Overall Assessment: This is such a wonderful loose powder, and I am thrilled that CLE Cosmetics opted to use encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid in this gem. Nicely done!

  1. I love the idea of powder, but I have no oil for it to sop up, lol. So, I don't use it. However, CLE Cosmetics' loose power is gorgeous and it's fantastic that it has encapsulated HA that might actually help my very dry skin!

    1. I have normal/combination skin, and I don't use powders, but the HA in this one makes all of the difference in the world! It doesn't feel or look like I have applied chalk to my skin! This is quite nice, Allison!

  2. This is the kind of powder I need. I don’t use foundation and this would be good for my videos. Is there a way to buy a smaller sample?

    1. IT's a wonderful powder, Michelle, and the HA makes all of the difference in the world! I just checked their website and this is the only size they sell. It is a new launch, so perhaps they will eventually come out with a smaller size.
