The Fab India TEA TREE Face Wash – REVIEW

by Sush on May 27, 2010 · 34 comments

I have suffered from moderate acne since my school days. I have visited dermatologists, tried over-the-counter brand treatments, and used  various ointments, but nothing helped my skin to a large extent. Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH I am heading towards my mid-twenties and I don’t have any problems with breakouts or too many pimples. I still get one or two pimples once in a while but that’s not a problem for me; the only problem is the scar mark that comes along with acne. And some of the marks are still persisting.

A few days ago, I read a review on the site about the benefits of tea tree oil. It was suggested that regular use keeps away acne and also lightens the scars. So I decided to give it a whirl and bought the Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH. I kid you not; in one week (after a decade and a half) my face has cleared. I don’t have one single white head or breakout. It may not work for everyone, but it absolutely worked for me. In 7 days, my face is finally clear from a very simple, reasonably priced FACE WASH.

Before I start of, let me list a few benefits of TEA TREE OIL: Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH Tea tree oil is an essential oil obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a plant native to Australia. It contains constituents called terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s antimicrobial activity. There are lots of products containing Australian Tea tree oil, this oil is becoming more known now days. It can solve so many skin problems including:

  • blemishes
  • minor skin infections
  • uneven skin tone
  • cold sores
  • toenail infections
  • athletes foot
  • body odor
  • dandruff etc..etc…

Coming back to the product:

Its price: Rs.125/- (Indian rupees)

The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH

About The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH : The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH comes in a generous bottle green tube with a handy click cap, the face wash is gel based but I find the consistency to be a little runny. The gel itself is green in color with a transparent base. It CLAIMS on getting rid of stubborn blackheads and effectively controls acne while moisturizing enough to keep your skin soft with every wash. The smell is somewhat medicated type, like raw aloe Vera, which is not pleasant at all.

Recommended for: Oily skin Main ingredients: oil, glycerin, tea tree oil, shea butter.

Features: Firming, Lightening, Nourishing, Pigmentation, Pore cleaner, anti bacterial & anti fungal.

How I use it: I take some drops of face wash on my palm and massage my face. Rinse off with water and pat dry. I follow up with a  moisturizer and off I go.

The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH

The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH Pros of The Fab India TEA TREE FACH WASH

  • As effective as using Benzyl Peroxide.
  • 100% natural that contains no harmful chemicals (the organic equivalent of Benzyl Peroxide).
  • This facial wash refreshes my skin and removes all the makeup, which has not been removed through wipes.
  • In terms of skin improvement – specifically acne prone skin, it removes oil during the summer and doesn’t over dries my skin.
  • This wash comes in a tube with a handy click cap that is very hygienic and easy to handle. You can squeeze as per your requirement.
  • It doesn’t sting my eyes and works really well on getting rid of stubborn blackheads and effectively controls acne while moisturizing enough to keep your skin soft.
  • Keeps pores truly clear, my skin is a lot smoother after rinsing and the scent does not linger (which is good, cause the scent is not so great).
  • A little goes a long way- a pea sized amount is enough.
  • Reasonably priced.

Cons of  The Fab India TEA TREE Face Wash :

  • Smell can be strong and unpleasant for some so, girls don’t use it right before bed time, your husband will complain!
  • After about a week, my face did start to clear up but the face wash dries my skin so I have to apply a moisturizer.
  • Not suitable for normal and dry skin

Bottom line: I would have given it a rating of 5 if not for the fact that it can be drying to my skin. More often, it has been very effective in the remedy of acne and oily skin for me when I was using it for a while. It dried out the acne and helped heal acne wounds. It’s an effective remedy as the gel is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and antiseptic. It can be used direct;y  on the skin. Overall, is a nice gel cleanser that takes all the makeup and dirt off, without having to use much at all, and still leaves your skin nice, very soft and smooth, without any tightness or residue. Will I repurchase: Up till now I’m very happy with this Face wash. And will definitely repurchase, also I’ll suggest every one with oily skin to give it a try.

Sometimes Fab India products give excellent results. I was quite surprised with my depigmentation cream results. Glad it worked for you. :)

Neha,

I think now most Fab India stores keep the skincare range as well. So you may check. :)

hey sush! i have extremely dry skin and this works wonders for me. in fact, none of fab india’s face washes dry out my face. i don’t have acne or acne prone skin, but i did notice a difference after using this.
i have a question for you. does this face wash seem too watery? as soon as i open the lid to squeeze out a dollop, i realise there’s no dollop at all! there’s just liquid! runny liquid. the problem seems to have worsened because of the hot weather. you facing this too?

Hi Sush and Rati,

I just read your Tea Tree Face Wash Review and Rati’s Vitamin E De-Pigmentation Cream review. I want to tell you how impressed I am with you two people. Not just because you write well, but also because you do not publicize the product rather tell people your experience. Claps and Hugs for both of you! :kissing:

About me: Just like most here, I have immensely sensitive skin that I am suffering with since I became a teenager. Initially there were acne breakouts that never left my face flawless. Then came the time when everything dried, leaving scars, acne rashes and pigmented chin and lower cheeks. I went to a dermatologist and he helped me to some extent. I mean he introduced me to Cetaphil cleansing lotion for sensitive skin (greated thing for winters) and antioxidants and vitamin tabs. I can feel my face clearing a little (about 30%). My dermatologist also had given me gel based creams but I find them too drying for my skin. Moreover, the pigmentation is still there and he hasn’t told me anything about how to get rid of them. Due the fact that the cream dries my face I use it irregularly, which has lead to the face still being unclear.

I have spent a lot of money on this (doctor’s fees Rs.200/-, medicines costing at least 800/- each time and I have been going almost everything month (or alternate) for the past 3 years.

I love FABINDIA as a brand. I feel that they are honest!
I have been wearing FABINDIA garments for the past 7 years (Im 27 now) and my husband thinks FABINDIA was made for me (since I look the ‘best’ in their clothes … thinks my husband).

My question to you is … shall I give FABINDIA Tea Tree Face Wash and the De-pigmentation cream a try? Can I trust FABINDIA for these products?

Thanks for reading this comment. Keep on doing such good work.
Regards,
Pallavi.

P.S. I have subscribed to this website, and will be reading your posts regularly from now on. Do keep writing. Lots of Love :heart:
