Can you make it with just the powder and some distilled water? Would that do the trick, if stored properly?

Probably not, it'll oxidise.

I tried it once but I couldn't get the powder particles to dissolve properly. Felt like I was rubbing sand into my face.

No you can't. Read this article which explains it far better than I can.
