I'm a guy and know what you're thinking - we love our all-in-one body cleanser/conditioner/face wash/toothpaste, etc. While this is true for many dudes, I do have a basic daily skincare routine. I've tried many facial cleansers before and this is currently my favorite. Maybe you're thinking that this is wasteful since they are individually wrapped. However, this also means that you need LESS of the actual product and therefore less outer packaging. Think of a full-size shampoo bottle. That bottle is at best like 15% actual product and the rest is jsut water. So actually, I don't think that this is the most wasteful thing. The cleansing powder itself is amazing - I just pop open a pod and drop a few drops of water on it, rub my hands together and voila, I have a facial cleanser. I like that this one has just the right amount of GRIT to it to lightly exfoliate but not in a way that's too abrasive. Trust me, these things are awesome. Just don't eat them.
