cleansing foam review : etude house baking powder pore cleansing foam

i got this one for the travel size, only 30 ml to try out. the full size tube is 170ml.
and because it is not full size tube, there is no english description on the packaging. but i could see written there 3 in 1. 3 in 1? i don't know why they call this 3 in 1 type cleanser. so i searched on the net, and here some information i found about this products :

information from google, ebay, gmarket :

Formulated with baking powder to gently exfoliate skin and penetrate pores to absorb oil and residues for a thorough cleanse.

How to Use:
Wet face and dispense small amount onto hands. Lather and apply foam to face, gently massaging entire area. Wash and rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Product Features:
1: Gentle and Refreshing Facial Cleanser
2: Completely removes make-up and other Skin Impurities
3: Thoroughly cleanses skin down to the pores
4: Effectively exfoliates skin

so what's the 3 in 1? as a scrub, make up remover, and cleanser? or as a cleansing, exfoliate and make up remover? i even read on one of the seller from ebay said the 3 in 1 is scrub cleanser, make up remover and toner..? really? no, i'm not sure. if you have the full size tube and there is an explanation there please tell me.

anyway, this is my review.
first, the scent. i love it. it is sweet, and it bring back memory of something, like i knew this smell, but until now i don't remember what kind of smell it is and where did i smell it before. but it is like something from my school year, the sweet smell, it is like a sweet soda or something. everytime i washed my face with this i always think about it and try to remember but i couldn't. but anyway, it is a sweet scent, not too much. just nice.

the scrubs, it is very soft. even softer than the real baking soda from your kitchen. have you tried baking soda on your face? u did. and it is good. some months ago i ran out of scrub and i felt my face need it. so i mix 1/4 teaspoon baking soda with my cleansing oil and wash my face with that mixture, and it was nice. this etude house, the scrub is very soft, it is not like using scrub. maybe because it is for everyday use so they made it soft.

and the performance to clean my face is good. on a day when i didn't go out and just put a moisturizer and a light bb cream (no powder and any other make up), this cleanser is more than enough, i don't have to do double cleansing. but with make up i still clean my face with cleansing lotion first than this cleansing foam. although the product saying that it is also make up remover, but i guess i still prefer cleansing lotion or make up remover first.

as a cleansing foam it cleans well and doesn't dry my skin, which is good! i felt fresh and clean after using this. in fact i am interested to buy the full size bottle, but i wanted to buy the bb one. there is another type of this etude house baking powder cleansing foam that formulated special to remove bb cream. and as a bb cream user, i wanted that one!so when i was in jakarta i went to etude house counter in gandaria city, and too bad they don't have that one. they only have this original one, the one i have. so i didn't buy it :(
maybe next time.
