I have suffered from acne ever since I was in my teens. I have to take care of my skin every single day, else a breakout ensues. I do have a skin care regimen that I follow without any slacking, but once in a while, in spite of all the hard work, I do get breakouts and I don’t really like waltzing in dermatologist’s any more. So, I keep trying products, especially face washes and creams that could help me with my acne problem and this was one such product that I bought last month.
Name of the Product:
Nature’s Essence Acne Magic Antiseptic Face Wash.
Rs. 50 for 60 ml.
The over activity of sebaceous glands leads to excess production of sebum oil causing acne and pimples, this dry antiseptic acne face wash ensures that the excess oil is soaked and the imperfection pulled out of the skin making skin acne and pimple free. Presence of natural wonders like neem, turmeric, cloves are perfect for alleviating the acne problem.

My Experience with Nature’s Essence Acne Magic Antiseptic Face Wash:
The face wash comes in a small white tube with a screw on cap that can also be flipped open to reveal a small nozzle through which the product can be dispensed. The flip open part of the cap is flimsy as the product kept leaking, so I had to store it upside down.
Coming to the product itself, it is a transparent gel of medium consistency, neither thick nor runny. It has a very light green tint and smells lightly of neem leaves without the bitterness associated with them. I liked the smell as I associated it with the feeling of freshness.
The first time I used the face wash, I took about a pea-sized amount. It did not lather at all. I added some more to amount to about a coin sized quantity. This time, it did lather, but not quite. I have used some pretty good non-foaming face washes in the past that I have liked, so I thought, maybe it could join their ranks. I washed it off, but the soapy feeling did not leave me. I hate that feeling. I washed my face vigorously till that soapy feeling got washed off. When I dried my face, I did not get the “squeaky clean” feeling that I am used to. I washed my face again and only then did my face feel really clean, but I decided to give it a chance before writing it off. Maybe it would work on my acne? But I was thoroughly disappointed. I have used up the entire tube and my acne persisted as always. No action at all. This is among the worst face washed I have used.
Pros of Nature’s Essence Acne Magic Antiseptic Face Wash:
- Gel based, which is good for oily skin.
- I like its mild neem-like but not bitter smell.
Cons of Nature’s Essence Acne Magic Antiseptic Face Wash:
- I used up the entire tube and found no action on acne.
- Takes a lot of washing to get off that soapy feeling even though it does not lather a lot.
- I don’t know if it’s just me, but I am used to my skin feeling crystal clean after washing and I don’t get that feeling unless I take a huge amount of the gel.
