Today’s review is for a product I have been curious about for quite a long time: Palladio Rice Powder. I had watched a few UK blogger videos about another brand of rice powder that isn’t available in the US and got instantly curious. When I found out Palladio made one of their own, I had to give it a shot.
A little bit about Rice Powder taken from the Palladio site:
“Rice Powder is the refined starch from rice, known as Oryza Sativa. The powder of rice has been used for centuries in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice. It is used as a poultice that soothes inflamed acne and skin ulcerations. It has been used by Asian women in their facial makeup and to wash their skin since the 16th century. It is considered an emollient rich skin treatment.
Rice products absorb excess oils, thus maintaining proper pH levels in the skin’s mantle. “
The powder comes in a square box with a thin puff. The lid pops on and off instead of screwing on, so I would not recommend this for a handbag as it could spill.
It looks a tinge yellow in the container, but not once it is blended in. The rice powder is very finely milled and smooth; a real treat to wear on the skin. I feel like I have nothing on, yet my imperfections look blurred. I’ve been using this to set my liquid foundation and it doesn’t look as cakey as powders have looked in the past. I’ve also found that this product keeps my oily t zone at bay throughout the day resulting in less touchups.
Palladio Rice Powder retails for around $5 at Ulta and Palladiobeauty.com and is an absolute steal. This is something I will 100% repurchase in the future; it even dethroned my beloved MAC Pro Setting Powder!
