Why a tablet?
Keeps ingredients pure and safe.  Water provides a medium for harmful bacteria, mold, yeast and fungi to grow.
NoWater = No preservatives = No Reactions/Irritation

All ingredients are 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan and non-gmo.

*We use less than 2% silicon dioxide to facilitate manufacturing.


Step 1: Remove makeup before using. 
POP one tablet. Place in the palm of your hand. 

Step 2: DROP water on to tablet. Use yours hand to drop water. DO NOT put tablet under water.  Softly press on tablet to form a paste. 

Step 3: Scoop paste. DO NOT rub hands together. Apply on full face. 
WASH face. No brown residue on face towel means you’ve washed thoroughly.

Pro Tip: You can leave product on as a mask for 5 minutes for extra silkiness. 

Texture of Face Gems: Silky, smooth paste. Does NOT lather.


A new way to wash your face: Why a tablet? We are used to pumping, squeezing or grabbing face wash/soap. Why change this habit? Those products use water as a key ingredient. But, water is a medium for harmful bacteria, mold, yeast and fungi to grow. To prevent this and maintain shelf-life, preservatives are added. These preservatives can cause allergic reactions or skin irritation. With Face Gems water is only added when ready to use, hence a fresh and safe wash every time. 

Our formula is potent and inspired by old Indian and Ayurveda remedies. For most products water is 80%-90% of the formula. But, water can dilute the effects of ingredients. Hence, with no water, ingredients have their true impact. 

Know your face is clean. Ever wonder, how do I know my face is clean? Outside of the feeling or image in the mirror there is no way to know for sure. With Face Gems, the brown color of our tablets allows you to know. When you wash it off, if your towel is clean, as in no brown residue, you know you have washed thoroughly – no oils or dirt on this face! Washing thoroughly is key for a good skincare routine.




1 Tablet = 1 wash.

Remonde:”I was using a different product before I started using Face Gems. The product I was using before Face Gems left my skin feeling dry. I started using Face Gems for 30days and it helped balance my skin. I am happy to report that my skin is back to its natural healthy state. I really enjoyed using the product. Thank you!”

#skinconfident is not just about respecting our body and inner weird, but also the world we live in.

At Feather & Bone we are committed to respecting the most important natural resource Mother Earth has to offer: WATER

Face Gems uses NO water in manufacturing. In skincare products water can be up to 80%-90% of the formulation, and through the manufacturing process there is water wastage.
Lower carbon emissions. Water is heavy to transport which requires more fuel resulting in increased carbon emissions to get the product to the customer. With Face Gems being waterless, our overall carbon footprint is much lower.
Our ingredients are earth-friendly and directly derived from nature. As a result the product residue in wastewater does not harm the environment, aquatic plant and animal life. We were recognized for this by the United Nations.
No product wastage: Face Gems are portion controlled
Since the product is completely used, there is NO additional carbon emissions, water wastage or product residue in wastewater, when the empty packets are sent for recycling; the complete opposite for water based products.

    Hi! That has never happened. It must have been an error on the packager during filling. Would you like us to send you 3 more tablets? So sorry about that!

    A I second this. I do love the product however I think the individual wrapping is an unnecessary expense for the company and the environment. Some other tablet companies use glass and keep all the tablets together. It keeps the moisture out and it’s cheaper and a cleaner alternative. Some even offer to refill if you send the glass back! I think it would be a huge step in your company to be more environmentally friendly. Overall great product!

    I love the face gems! I have been using them for over two years, will not use anything else to cleanse or exfoliate. It has transformed my blotchy breakout prone skin to a beautiful supple hydrated complexion. Great job F&B!

    Skin Type: Sensitive

    Face gems simple fast way to give my skin a treat. I use them to wash away grime after traveling on planes and working out. love it!

  4. Remonde

    I used the product for 30 days. I notice my face maintain a natural healthy balance which I needed. The product I was using before seemed to have dried my face a bit.I’m pleased with this product:)

    I got these in my Dough box (if you haven’t heard of Dough, definitely look it up) and I love them! I have never really had any issues with my skin but I do get small breakouts sometimes. Regardless, I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin since I started using these! My only concern is the packaging. I haven’t seen any information about what it made of, but I try to be environmentally conscious, so worry a bit about the waste. I would suggest replicating what the brand by Humankind has done with their mouthwash.

    • Shubhangini Prakash

      So glad you love them! We are working on more sustainable packaging. All of our plastic is recycled and recyclable. Unfortunately just putting the tablets loose in the bottle like Humankind actually destroys the product itself – but rest assured we are working on better solutions with our partners!

    Feels good! Smells medicinal in a good way.

    I’m glad to see that there’s a space for customer reviews here and hope others will use this to share their experiences. I read about the face gems in an online article on natural beauty and was immediately psyched. I have been struggling with adult acne for about a year and a half and also have been seeking nontoxic products, so needless to say I’ve tried a ton of stuff and it’s been a whole lot of trial and error. Almost every liquid cleanser I’ve tried during this time has broken me out either immediately or down the line, due to them having soap that was messing with my ph, ingredients that were natural but too harsh for my skin (ie tea tree), or oils that despite being fairly noncomedogenic still didn’t work well with my skin. anyway, the only thing that seemed to calm down and exfoliate my skin well was chickpea flour, but it honestly just wasn’t washing it quite enough so I still had to use either hemp oil or a not-so-great liquid face wash once a week or so. also as a side note, an elimination diet helped me figure out which foods were causing inflammation for me and that helped a whole ton. this is a long-winded experience that I wanted to share for others who might be struggling and feel like they want to give up on finding natural products that work because: these face gems really rule and holy crap am I impressed by how well they work. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone with any skin type. these are easy to use, smell good if you enjoy sandalwood, and they work wonderfully. they let me know that these won’t take off oil-based makeup, but I rarely wear any aside from around my eyes so it hasn’t been an issue. I just use a face wipe and then cleanse, or just take off my eye makeup with oil. these make my face feel very clean after use, and they exfoliate gently and make your skin very soft. they also don’t dry out my skin the way other cleansers I’ve used do. I have just been following with a rosewater/glycerin toner or one with acv/water prior to the aforementioned one if my face is feeling especially oily. I’ve been using for a couple weeks now and they haven’t irritated my skin or broken me out at all. my face actually feels calmer after using them, which is not something you find with most products that exfoliate. okay, hopefully there will be something in here that’s helpful to someone reading. to summarize: these face gems are awesome, try them!

  8. Claudia

    I really love these gems. They have done wonders to my skin. I will keep on ordering them. ????

  9. Ann M.

    I was very surprised how much I wanted to change my skincare routine after trying these gems. Super easy to use and super easy to take on any trip! I actually used through my whole pregnancy because they are all natural! Great purchased.

  10. Kelly

    I LOVE this face wash! It has everything to make my skin look fresh, clean, and moisturized. It’s easy to travel with and I started getting compliments after just a few days of using the face wash. Plus it smells divine! I will be using this forever!

  11. Skin care lover Meg

    If I am not traveling , I am running around NYC always working, and working out. All of my other skin care products cannot run around with me. These compact face tabs fit perfectly in my backpack and can use them anywhere!

  12. Alana

    I had previously found only a few face washes that worked to clear up my acne for my combo skin but none of them were fantastic and mind-blowingly good like this! I found out about this company while I visited beauty con new york just before leaving and doing a quick last minute walk through and wow am I glad I did that. I was a bit skeptical of how much it would do for my skin as it was only 3 ingredients saying to myself “how much could this really do.” I have only been using them for a week, 1 every night, and my skin has looked FLAWLESS every since. almost every current bit of ance I had was gone in about 2-3 days while my acne scars (which I have had for years because nothing seemed to be working for removing it) have almost completely disappeared!! I am so shocked that a product I found so last minute with only 3 ingredients and so cheap could do so much! absolutely blown away!!

  13. Kelly Schwartz

    I have been struggling with acne and oily skin for many years. I am almost 50 years old and I have the most sensitive skin imaginable. I stumbled across Feather & Bone and thought “Why not?”. Well, 60 days later….60 tablets later…my face looks and feels awesome. I love these. I now signed up for the monthly delivery. I’m hooked. Now, if Feather & Bone could make a moisturizer for after….with few ingredients as well…. 🙂

  14. Gaby.

    The face gems are easy to use, they leave my skin feeling fresh and clean, and they smell so good!!!

  15. CP

    It’s hard for to get moisture from exfoliating products, but my face wasn’t dried out after using face gems. It was moisturized! I like to use this as a exfoliating cleanser and clay mask to get the full benefit. I also love how they are individually wrapped! I can take them everywhere ! Looking forward to other products from FNB !

  16. Paige J

    My Feather & Bone gems came in last week, and I’m in love! I highly recommend giving these a try if you are looking to change up your skin care routine, for any reason!

  17. Basilakis

    I use this when I want anquick exfoliating wash to get a real clean feel. It’s so simple to use and so convenient that if I’m traveling it’s always in my bag. Can’t get over the quality of the ingredients too! For something that’s so natural and chemical free it’s really the best product out there
