ASHES Reincarnation Cleansing Grains


50+ Trace Mineral Sea Salts, Geranium & Potato Powder

Skin born anew. These lively cleansing grains burst and bubble as they rid the skin of dirt, daily pollution, and bacteria. Activated by fresh water, Ashes warm and tingle as they work their magic to fade age spots, discoloration, and calm redness. Regain the skin's natural elasticity and luminosity, stimulate healing, and reduce inflammation. Like the phoenix from the ashes, your skin is born again.


  • Use it with your favorite shampoo to revitalize, heal, and nourish your scalp. Pour your normal amount of shampoo into your palm and sprinkle Ashes on top. Add water until you have a wonderful foaming mixture. Wash hair and let mixture rest for a few minutes before rinsing completely.
  • Our favorite way to clear age spots and ease redness? Sprinkle a little Ashes over Clarity Awakening Face Cream – add a little water to create a mousse-like face mask. Apply to the entire face and relax for 10 minutes. Rinse completely.

It's Good Medicine

Ashes are symbolic of life reduced to its simplest form — purity — and as such are part of the Sacred Ways of the Native American Cultures. Soaps were first discovered when ashes were combined with oil. Our ashes are a reduced form of potato and other mineralized essences.

How To Indulge

Dust your palms lightly with Ashes, then add water to the hands. As the grains burst and bubble, rub your hands together several times, and, like magic the cleansing powder becomes a silky liquid. A warm, tingling sensation should be expected as the Vitamin C is activated by adding water to the dry powder. If the solution feels sticky, add a little water until it glides smoothly over your skin. Before rinsing away, let it rest on the skin for a moment to complete the cleansing action.

We are women who know what we want. When we set out to create a line of clean, luxury skincare formulas SIZE was a top priority. Because yes, size matters. We want our customers to feel pampered, unlimited, and connected to our products. This is why we create highly-concentrated formulas (a little goes a long way) but we don't stop there. We strive to surpass standard sizes you have become accustomed to.

We feel like beauty industry standard sizes just aren't good enough. Our full-size facial formulas are usually twice the standard size. Our Deluxe Minis last for 2-3 weeks rather than a single-use sample that you find at the beauty counters. So go ahead, there is plenty in each bottle to treat yourself like the goddess you are.

It’s potato heaven! These ashes give a slight tingling on your skin when it’s mixed with water. I always feel like my face is extra refreshed after using ashes in my morning face routine.

I like to pour a scoop into my hand and had a few drops of water to make it creamy. My skin looks so clean, refreshed and even after using ashes!

The juniper smell is mild but for those who are smell sensitive it might be much.

💯 worth it!

On my second one <3!!

some people don't loved the smell, but I find it fine! you kind of have to remember that these are "real" plant/food ingredients (potato, coconut, etc.) so it's not going to smell like a synthetic perfume. I love this product, I use it in the morning, and a foaming/lathering cleanser at night. it leaves me feeling clean, soft, fresh, and moisturized. a very gentle and effective treatment. and long lasting!

for context:
female, white, early 20's, dryer/slightly sensitive skin, mild hormonal acne during my period, live in nyc (lots of pollution).

Love this

I have been a face soap user forever and never thought I'd adjust to using a product that didn't lather. I love how my skin looks and feels after regular use of Ashes cleansing grains. I use Ashes every morning and the Rain every evening along with the other products, and I feel like I have a daily professional facial!

Smells horrible

I’ve never written a bad review about a skin care product, but I really dislike this product. The smell is horrible. And I have to hold my breath in order not to smell it before applying. I have one more full size container that’s not opened up that I will suffer through to use it since I paid $$ for it. But after that I will look elsewhere. Will never use again. #disappointed #gross

Great for face and body!

There are so many Good Medicine products that I love, but this one is for sure at the top! The cleansing grains are great for making skin feel fresh and polished, but in such a non-abrasive way. If you’re looking for a gentle, yet efficient exfoliant, look no further!!
