Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash
After Acnes Sealing Gel and Acnes Powder Lotion, it is Acnes Creamy Wash’s turn, at last. The word creamy, in the face wash’s name is a bit misleading. The name makes you feel the face wash has a creamy face but it is not like that. Creamy has been used to describe the consistency of the face wash which is a bit thick. I got the smaller tube, that way no guilt in throwing it away if I didn’t like it.
What it claims:
Anti-bacterial, acne preventive face wash; fights bacteria, prevents acne; removes dirt and dust, kills acnegenic bacteria present deep inside the pores and fortified with Vitamin C and E.
A very long list of ingredients, I’d say.
What it does:
It is white in colour and smells like all other mentholatum products. The good thing is that the smell doesn’t linger on.
You just need to use a small amount of this creamy wash and it is more than enough. This way even the 12g tube that I have has lasted me more than 20 days (I washed my face with it twice a day). It doesn’t really lather but it still cleans up the face very effectively. If you have a mild acne problem and they are being caused by dirt and pollution, this product is for you. Everybody else will need to pair it up with whatever treatment suits them. Even though I have an oily skin, I do feel the need to moisturize after using this face wash because of the season. In summers, the powder lotion and this face wash together will control oil effectively without making the skin dry.
If you want to try this range, creamy wash is the safest bet.
Price: Rs. 20 for 12g
