About Twinkle Apothecary

One cleanser for all

A gentle, nourishing powder cleanser that doubles as a face mask. This is a customizable, DIY-friendly product that can be used in many different ways to meet your skin's ever-changing needs.

Option 1: Use the cleanser base on its own. This is an effective cleanser with hydrating properties that are balancing for all skin types, even the most sensitive and reactive skin.  

Option 2: Use the cleanser base with the exfoliating or pore-refining boost on the side. This is a great place to start and get an idea of what your skin prefers. 

Option 3: Buy the cleanser base pre-mixed with either the exfoliating or pore-refining boost. This is a perfect, no-fuss option if you know that your skin loves one of the boosts enough to use daily, or if you're just not into mixing it up yourself at home. 

Read more about the benefits of this cleanser here.

Try it in the Starter Skincare Set ($55)

Package-free option 

The full-size cleanser is packaged in a bottle or a biodegradable paper bag so you can repurpose a bottle that you already have at home. This helps keep all of my reusable glass bottles in use, and reduces a ton of shipping waste. A soft silicone funnel is the best way to transfer the powder to a bottle with a narrow opening. 

The sample contains about 1 tablespoon of product - enough for 2-3 tries. 

The travel-size bottle contains about 1/4 cup of product, approximately 1.15 ounces by weight. 

The large bottle and biodegradable bag contain about 1 cup of product, or approximately 4.5 ounces by weight. This will refill one of the large, 8 oz size bottles and is enough for 30-50 uses, depending on how much you use. The double-size bag contains 2 cups, or about 9 ounces by weight.  

Keep your bag dry. Transferring your cleanser to an airtight container ASAP is the best option for long-term storage.

Cleanser base 

Just three wholesome ingredients - oats, kaolin clay, and aloe vera - effectively cleanse and soothe skin without disrupting your skin's microbiome.  

Use it on its own, or add in a boost.

Full ingredients: oat flour, kaolin clay, aloe vera powder

Oats: gently cleanse while nourishing the skin barrier, soothes inflammation (pictured on product cover image.)

Kaolin clay: draws impurities out of the pores without stripping the skin

Aloe: moisturizing, anti-bacterial, humectant, skin repairing  

Exfoliating boost 

Rice flour, coconut milk, and rosehip seed powder gently polish without damaging your skin. 

Let me mix it in for you or, get a sample envelope or small bottle to sprinkle into your cleanser base as needed to promote cell turnover and leave your skin feeling smooth, looking radiant.

Full ingredients: White rice flour, organic dehydrated coconut milk, rosehip seed meal, organic acacia fiber, organic tapioca maltodextrin 

Rice flour: gentle, smoothing polish, brightens skin 

Coconut milk: promotes cell turnover, moisturizing, skin-repairing antioxidants 

Rosehip seed: antioxidant-rich, manual polish 

Pore refining boost

Matcha green tea powder, activated charcoal, and pink kaolin clay draw impurities from your pores while revitalizing your skin. 

Let me mix it in for you, or, get a sample envelope or small bottle to sprinkle into your cleanser base as needed to clear breakouts and blackheads. 

Full ingredients: organic matcha green tea powder, activated charcoal, pink kaolin clay

Matcha: anti-inflammatory, skin-repairing antioxidants 

Activated charcoal: draws out impurities to refine pores 

Pink kaolin clay: draws out impurities, boosts circulation to promote radiance 

Instructions

Sprinkle: Pour approximately 1-2 teaspoons of cleanser into the palm of your hand, or into a bowl. If using one of the boosts, sprinkle approximately 1/8-1/4 teaspoon of the boost into your hand/bowl with the cleanser base. 

Mix: Using your fingers, or a spoon, mix the powders with a small amount of liquid until a paste is formed. Use water from the tap, or, try toner, hydrating mist, coconut milk, or a cooled herbal tea for even more skin-beneficial nutrients.

Massage: Gently massage onto your face using small circular motions. 

Rinse: Rinse off with warm water right away, or, leave it on until it dries for a mask. 

How to do skin care: for best results, always follow with Toner, Oil, and (optional) Butter.

If wearing makeup, I recommend removing it with an oil cleanse before using this powder cleanser. 

Product FAQs

Can I use this morning and night? 

Yes, it's gentle enough to use twice a day if you like. 

How long should I leave it on? 

A few minutes is plenty. The kaolin clay pulls impurities out of your pores as it dries, so once it's dry, its work is done and you can rise it off. Leaving it on for too long can be drying. If you'd like to leave it on your skin longer, keep it moist by misting with Toner every few minutes.

Can I use the exfoliating or pore refining boosts on their own, without the cleanser base? 

I don't recommend this. The exfoliating and pore-refining boosts do not work as cleansers or masks on their own. A small amount mixed into your cleanser base is the best way to get the benefits of these add-in products.   

Can I add some of the exfoliating and pore-refining boosts to my cleanser at the same time?

Yes. If you want to exfoliate while refining your pores, go for it. These DIY products are meant to adapt to your skin's ever-adjusting needs. 

Can I order a large, full-size bag or bottle of just the exfoliating or pore-refining boost? 

Right now, I only have sample sizes and travel-size bottles of the exfoliating and pore refining boosts to purchase separately.

Can I mix the samples of the exfoliating or pore refining boosts into my full bag of cleanser base myself? 

Yes. I recommend using 3-4 sample envelopes for each full-size bag of the cleanser base, but you can use more or less, depending on your needs. 

How do I know which option is best for me? 

By trying samples! If you're not into experimenting and mixing in boosts on your own, try a travel-size bottle of each option before committing to a full-size bag.

Perfect cleanser

The cleanser is the perfect start to my skin care routine. I've tried multiple iterations of Twinkle cleansers over the years, and the sweet spot for my acne-prone dry skin is the cleanser with pore-refining boost. It cleanses and cleans without drying out my skin and makes my skin feel so smooth and luxurious. I order the refill bags to fill my original 2 oz jar, and it lasts such a long time. I love the sustainable option, and not having to worry about running out frequently.

Awesome, I love that the refill bags work for you! The pore-refining boost is my fave too!

I love it!!

The face, body and hair oil makes my face feel extra smooth with more of an even tone. I love to apply it after I have used facial cleanser and toner and then add balm as an extra touch.

That sounds like the perfect twinkle routine! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

The best cleanser! Love the exfoliating blend.

I’ve always loved the gentle cleanser blend. I’ve been using it for about three years now and it makes my skin so perfect. I tried the exfoliating blend this time and I am so in love. It makes the smell so lovely and my skin look so polished.

That's awesome, it makes me so happy to know that this has worked so consistently well for you over the years! Thank you for the great review!

Love the basic skincare this product delivers. I’m a huge fan of all the products at Twinkle. My skin never felt better and I’m using less chemicals on my body.

best of both worlds!

I was a huge fan of the old cleanser. Now I am loving the soothing properties of the oatmeal and aloe. The two mixed together is absolutely perfect. I still feel the exfoliating benefits of the rice flour and rose hip which are immediately soothed by the oatmeal and aloe-it's the perfect combo!

Wonderful! Thank you for trusting me to give you something new and lovely. I'm so glad to know that you're enjoying it!
