Review – FANCL Facial Washing Powder


Fancl Facial Washing Powder, is considered one of the most well-known facial foaming wash in the skincare industry. Completely preservative-free, it does not contain any sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium lauryl ether sulphate foaming agent.

FANCL believes that when preservatives in skincare accumulate on skin, it may cause stress to the skin and may bring about harmful effects such as :

  • Reducing the effectiveness of beauty ingredients
  • Accelerating skin aging
  • Damaging skin cell DNA
  • Promoting the production of immature skin cells, lowering the skin’s natural protection

Product claims

Experience its silky softness as you smooth it on. Feel the bouncy cushioning layer between your face and fingers as the foam works to cleanse away all that dirt and grime, leaving your face feeling smooth and moist all the time.

Ingredient claims

New Fancl facial washing powder now harnesses the power of 3 types of amino acid in its special Amino Hybrid Technology formulation – a Moisture Retaining Amino Acid Cleansing Agent which rids skin of dirt and grime without stripping away its natural moisture; Polyamino Acid which helps to create a creamier, denser foam and Amino Acid (Serine) which makes skin feel wonderfully soft after facial wash.

Foam is commonly perceived as harmful to skin as it is known for robbing moisture from skin, leaving it dry. This is not the case with Amino Acid based facial cleansers.

Harmful Ingredient

Fancl Facial Washing Powder contains potassium myristate, a detergent cleansing agent that is a constituent of soap; it can be drying and sensitizing for some skin types. 


As Fancl Facial Washing Powder consists free of preservatives, it is therefore only available in smaller packaging of 25g and 50g. Freshness period : 60 days once opened and 1 year from manufacturing date if unopened.


  • S$15.00 25g x 1 bottle
  • S$26.00 50g x 1 bottle
  • S$48.50 50g x 2 bottles


I double my cleansing effectiveness with the help of Fancl Facial Washing Puff. It helps to create more creamy dense foam which is smooth over my face. Although it removes dirt effectively, my skin feels dry and slightly tight after use.



Will I buy it again? …… I doubt so!
