Hello! Today I am going to review the Rice Powder from Palladio! 🙂
This powder is designed to absorb any oils present on the face, reducing any unflattering shine. RicePowder has been used for the skin by Asian women since the 16th century, and with good reason! ^_^
I really love the theme of the packaging for this product, I love the oriental feel to it. It looks very attractive and suits the product perfectly, however the main problem with the box is the fact that the lid is loose, meaning it is not portable. The box must be keep upright at all times, throwing it into your bag would throw the powder everywhere! It would be nice if the lid fitted on the box allowing it to be moved around easily. Oh well~ :I
Here’s the big seller! (for me anyway!) on the back, the amazing words “Not tested on animals” ❤
100% guilt free!
The Powder itself is made from the refined starch from rice called “Oryza Sativa” apparently…….
The Powder comes in 3 different shades which are; Translucent, Natural and Warm Beige. I have bought the translucent powder, so it’s not really used to give any kind of coverage to the skin. When applying only a very small amount is needed, and I find sweeping it across any oily areas is like pushing a “Delete” button on shine! I would recommend only using a minimal amount at one time, as putting on too much will cause it to build up on pores.
I don’t have a big problem with oily skin, my skin is mostly dry but around the summer months my skin can get slightly more oily around the T-zone. This powder has been great for getting a matt effect on the face, making it great for applying over foundation in order to finish and set your make-up.
If your skin is pretty oily, and the oil can build up shine as the day goes, Palladio also have Rice Paper blotting sheets (these also come in the 3 shades listed above) which you can take with you and dab your face with them to remove oil. I have yet to try these, and would like to but I can’t seem to find any that ship to U.K >.<!!
Overall score: 7/10
- The product will give a great matt finish, removing shine.
- Only use minimal amount for best results.
- Three aviable shades.
- Really cheap prices!
- Poor package design.
