You know those days when you wake up feeling fresh, ready to take on the morning, but your skin just won’t come to the party? Or, worse, when you’ve been burning the midnight oil on the sly, but your complexion is giving away all your late-night secrets? Mood: UGH.

Now, before you do what we always do, and reach for a luminiser of silver surfer proportions, let us hook you up with our new forever-friend, Nude’s effervescent detox brightening fizzy powder wash – sounds delicious? It is. And we’re bingeing, hard.

We’ve been obsessed with fuzzy, micro-exfoliants for a while; Dermalogica does a great one, so does Alpha-H, but man, is this one the bomb. Packed with all-natural ingredients specially formulated to do that whole lit-from-within thing we all covet so deeply, it’s our favourite new way to give skin some much-need wattage.

Made by cult-brand Nude, one of the most underrated all-natural brands around and the epitome of green-luxe, this is some high-powered stuff. You see, it’s stacked with hyper-brightening Vitamin C and a bevvy of superfoods like rose hip and vanilla orchid seeds, and acai berry. In a nutshell: it’s like an in-shower green smoothie, a daily fuel injection that gives you that extra oomph, the first coffee of the day. It’s magic.

For anyone who is exhausted (see also: hungover), this puppy is a Do. Its natural state is powder, but when mixed with a tiny amount of water, it turns into a fantastical fizzy foam that instantly hides all your late-night skin sins. To be honest, it’s the only wakeup call we look forward to.
