Pigeon Medicated Powder Cake Review
Baby powders are used on babies’ delicate skin to protect them from moisture and prickly heat. I read reviews about this powder cake made for babies but used by adults. I think it is a very nice idea to use baby powder on our face not only because it looks natural but also because of its properties…
Product Description from babybestbuy:
Pigeon Medicated Powder Cake provided for the upper body. This powder helps to prevent prickly heat and sores, and gently protects the baby’s delicate skin. This product is formulated in collagen and silicone oil which to protect baby’s skin. The easy to use solid powder is a medicinal and gentle to the baby’s skin and comes in a compact container.
And from Pigeon Singapore:
Differentiating the compact powder with the loose baby powder…
Q: What are the different uses of solid Baby Powder and loose Baby Powder?
A: Use Pigeon solid powder on the upper half of your baby’s body because your baby may inhale the powder if it disperses in the air. Apply lightly to the lower half of your baby’s body. Please clean your baby’s skin before applying both powders, but avoid applying it to skin that has an inflammation or rash.
Zinc Oxide: active ingredient, other ingredients: talc, silica, corn starch, liquid paraffin, squalane, polyethylene powder, glycerin, methyl polysiloxane
I’ve been using this for over a year on and off. But since I’ve been working in a hospital I found that my powder foundation transfers on my mask making it look dirty and unsanitary. Thus I said to myself I think I need to use a translucent powder. I dug in my makeup cabinet and found this again. I’ve been using it for two weeks now and I’m pretty happy with it.
This one doesn’t hide imperfections like blemishes and doesn’t even out skin tone. Yet I find my skin looks nice upon application. It gives an impression of no makeup look.
Its translucent effect makes my face look fresh and renewed. I love that it doesn’t make my face oil up right away. It is also fine to use this as a blotting powder since it won’t cake up or pile up on my skin.
Since this is made for babies I think it is very hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause any irritation. I never broke out while using this.
I dropped it and this is the outcome. :( I can still use it though. The product doesn’t leak out of the compact ;)

Will I Repurchase?
Since this is made for babies the compact doesn’t have a mirror. They don’t need the mirror! HAHAHA!
The other Pigeon variant (according to their Singapore site) has a mirror which I think is really made for adults but marketed as “for babies” is gibberish. This powder compact comes in 4 shades (which I think may cause irritation to people with sensitive skin.)
Though I think I’ll prefer this mirrorless one made from Japan. I recommend it to girls or even boys looking for a translucent powder that is hypoallergenic, medicated, and keeps oil at bay.
