Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel Review

Kaya Skin Clinic: Soothing Cleansing Gel, with moisturizers, Soap free. Formula Researched and Developed by Dermatologists

Kaya Skin Clinic

What Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel Claims: Gentle Foaming Agents provide a deep cleansing action. Moisturizing agents soothe and soften the skin, leaving the skin perfectly cleansed and purified with a pleasant feeling of freshness providing a more radiant smoother skin.

A soap free cleanser with glycerin and anti bacterial properties. Ideal for deep pore cleansing of skin and reduction of surface oil inflammation. The gentle formula leaves the skin perceptibly radiant, soft and supple.( from Kaya website)

Price: Rs. 550 (Indian Rupees) for 200ml. I bought this a year back so the pricing may have changed.

Directions  for using Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel: Pour a small amount of Gel into the palm of your hand and work up a lather with water. Massage onto moist skin, rinse thoroughly and pat the skin dry.
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Glycerin, Dimethicone Copolyol, Niacinamide, Zinc Lactate.

Sodium Laureth Sulphate is a foaming agent and a lot has been said regarding the potential harmful effects on the body. Please use your own judgment on this one.

Cocamidopropyl Betaine comes from coconut oil. It is used in cleansers because of its thickening and foaming properties, which also help moisturize the skin. Generally does not irritate the skin.

Lauryl Glucoside is a mild and gentle cleansing agent, also made from coconut oil

Glycerin is a humectant, which means that it attracts moisture to the skin. Also softens and soothes the skin

Dimethicone Copolyol helps the products spread more smoothly and evenly and in some cases acts as a moisturizer.

Niacinamide is commonly known as Vitamin B3. It is a skin rejuvenating ingredient effective in treating acne and hyper pigmentation. It also has anti ageing properties and is known to decrease age spots, lighten the skin, fade blemishes and scars and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.. It also keeps the skin soft, supple, hydrated.

Zinc Lactate helps reduce skin irritations and inflammations.

Again, some of the ingredients are chemicals said to irritate skin and cause harmful effects to body. Please use your own discretion regarding this.

Suitable for: Normal, combination and oily skin.

A word about gel cleansers: Gel cleansers are generally said to be better for oily acne prone skin as they break down oil and impurities efficiently. They may be too drying for dry skin for which cream cleansers are better suited.

Kaya Skin Clinic

I have combination skin. Oily on the T-zone and dry around the mouth and cheeks. Typically strong gel cleansers dry out my skin leaving me with a stretched feeling. Cream cleansers, on the other hand, do not completely cleanse my T zone of dirt and oil thus leaving my pores clogged. This puts me in a tricky situatuation as I need a product which will not only cleanse my skin of all the oil and dirt but also keep my skin from getting too dry. This is why I prefer mild gel cleansers which clean well and at the same do not dry me out. Kaya Cleansing Gel is one such product.

On to the packaging. Simple white pump bottle. Elegant and Uber chic. Love it. The pump dispenses a drop of the gel each time, making it very handy as well as keeps it germ free. It also locks shut when turned to one side thus making it very travel friendly. Not once has this gel spilled and made a mess while I am traveling.

The gel is transparent with a mild but fresh scent, which never fails to refresh me after a long day. It is gentle on the face and at the same time leaves face cleansed of all traces dirt and oil. Doesn’t excessively dry out my skin. The skin is instantly refreshed and rejuvenated and feels soft and smooth to touch. Regular usage has made my skin clearer and brighter. The product is so mild that it doesn’t sting even if it gets into the eyes a bit. When used in the mornings its freshening effect lasts all day and my T zone doesn’t get oily even until evening. The best thing is that it is also a good make up remover. It can remove most of my face makeup effectively but I am not sure about the eyes as I have never tried in on the eyes. For the eyes I always like to wipe off with olive oil and then use this gel for a thorough cleansing. Now for the soap free part. It does produce a little bit of lather so I cannot say if it is actually 100% soap free.
I have been using this for almost a year now and this is really one of my most favorite cleansers. I know the price is a bit steep but then 200 ml will last you at least 7-8 months or more depending on usage.

What I love about Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel:

  • Long lasting as One drop is enough to thoroughly cleanse the face. If you have make up on you will need more.
  • Cleanses well
  • Doesn’t excessively dry my skin even though it is a gel unless I use too much.
  • Effective in removing make up
  • Mild and extremely refreshing scent
  • Stylish packaging and practical too. It’s pump has a locking system so you can carry it around easily without having to worry about spillage .

Kaya Skin Clinic

What I dislike about Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel

  • The product is quite expensive.
  • Makes my skin a bit dry when I use too much of it. Not easy to wash off
  • Tends to leave a film on face if not rinsed thoroughly enough.

That’s all. Not too many negative points for this one. Will I buy this again? I would like to buy this one again sometime in the future, but then again it is pricey for a face wash and I am liking the Himalaya one quite a bit nowadays. I use Himalaya in the morning and Kaya in the night, but maybe I will carry on with Himalaya for the time being.

  1. You did a good job in describing the function of each and every ingredient, really good. I adore these kind of pump bottles, but Rs. 550 is a little too expensive for a cleansing gel 😥 😥 . Also, the film that the remains even after you have cleaned thorougly is something that puts me off completely…. :reallyangry:

  2. Poornima..I have not tried any skin treatmments at Kaya although I wanted to. actually their approach didn’t satisfy me completely. when I consulted with their docs, they only suggested similar treatments like peels and microdermabrasion which will basically take off a feww layers to reaveal the inner layers…which is obviously going to be smoother, softer, and more radiant. So what is it that they are doing to help your skin?? nothing really.

    And moreover they are more interested in selling their packages than advising you on skin care. Their docs will never tell you things like eat well and drink more water. theyy only go on telling about their treatments. Although I have a friend who says they have good acne treatments…but I don’t know coz I have no acne..I just enquired about general skin care. and tan removal..

    I do like many of their products though..:)

  3. Anamika

    This one lasted me 7-8 months probably coz I don’t use make up regularly and with two small kids I wasn’t going out of the house much then so my skin wouldn’t gather too much oil or dirt either…so I need very little.

    But I feel it would last atleast 6 months on an average..
