About Papier Poudre

The award winning Papier Poudré® is a range of absorbent powdered face papers that has been on the market for over 120 years. It is supplied in handy pocket or purse size booklets that come with 65 leaves. There is also a 20 leaf version available in Rachel.

In 2015 an XL version of the 65 leaf product in Rose and Rachel was produced. The pad size is approximately twice that of our standard pad and was introduced at the suggestion of some of our customers.

The natural ingredients of Papier Poudré® have special absorbent qualities for cleansing the pores, lifting oil dust and dirt from the skin, and soaking up excess oils. Your face will then look fresh and natural, with only a delicate trace of powder and an instant matte finish.

How Its Made

The same handmade paper has been used from the outset. Because it is handmade you can get slight variations in finish between batches but we try to keep this to a minimum.The only machinery used is when the pads are guillotined to size. All of this work, and the final manufacturing and quality checks are carried out in the UK by hand. 

How to use it

Detach a leaf and gently press the powdered side over the face. This will lift away oil, dirt and shine, leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean.
