Nomarks face wash – Youth Review
- Superior cleansing with sun protection
- Active encapsulated beads
- For a flawless lighter complexion
Some couple of months back; I saw a few new no marks face washes in three variants in stores. I have quite liked the no marks face wash in the past, the one with multi colored beads and a transparent tube. It used to smell quite fresh and never ever dried out skin. it unbelievably softened skin, a huge change from other drying face washes. Since these have been launched, I have never seen the old one again☹. I had to pick on the three new variants. I am not sure when these were launched but I have seen very few advertisements for these on TV. Correct me if I am wrong.
Variants: to the best of my knowledge, the variants are youth, teenage and 25+
I am 25 nevertheless I picked up youth :P. as a matter of fact I wanted to pick up teenage one (lol) but I thought I must leave some for the teenagers.
What the pack says:
In your youth, excessive exposure to the environmental factors coupled with hormonal activities functioning at their peak, make your skin vulnerable to damage due to pigmentation, uneven skin tone and tanning
This face wash is especially formulated to maintain even skin tone, by superior cleansing and providing effective sun protection. The encapsulated beads gently dissolve to release activities that not only deep cleanse but also counter harmful effects of both UVA and UVB rays.
Directions for use:
Moisten the face. Apply no marks face wash all over face in circular motion. Wash off and pat dry.
Result: regular use prevents darkening of skin and keeps it flawless, even toned and supple.
Active herbal ingredients:
Neem, lemon, clove
Aloe vera,neem, lemon oil, clove oil, camphor, mint, gel base
Price: Rs 60 for 75 ml (including 25% extra)
My take on Nomarks Face wash:
➢ I want everyone to take this product seriously. The claims mentioned on the pack are 75 % true. I am almost finishing the tube now and hence writing this review. This product DOES even out skin tone, DOES lighten tan, and DOES leave skin supple. In a long time, I have not been disappointed by the high-flown claims of a product.
➢ I have oily skin; I like something gel based for a face wash. Most gel face washes are mild and I don’t feel they remove grease effectively after a day’s work. But this product leaves skin fresh without being dry and removes oil effectively
➢ I have been using the face wash for 20 days, WITHOUT exposing my skin to the sun. So on that front; I will not be able to comment as I am dead against direct sun exposure. Apart from darkening, it reddens my skin and kind of burns it quickly.
➢ Having said that, I DID feel my skin toned evened out every time I used this.
➢ It left my skin supple enough
➢ You will need an average quantity of the gel to lather and remove dirt and oil from the skin
➢ It WILL be effective on pigmentation on normal skin. Sensitive skin can not take chances with this, it may be strong for them.
➢ The ingredients spell magic for oily skin: neem, clove, lemon.
➢ I did not get a single eruption or pimple all the while when I was using this. That said, I did not expose my skin to extreme dust and sun while I was using this face wash.
➢ I am not saying it’s meant for oily skin only, but oily skin club will like it better than other skin types.
➢ The beads dissolve when it lathers very mildly, god knows for what though.
➢ The green little beads look cute:)
Downside of Nomarks Face wash
➢ It smells VERY STRONGLY of CLOVE OIL. It does not smell all nice and fruity like other face washes. It’s almost like balm for headaches or clove oil for tooth ache. After a hard day, you may like the smell and find it relaxing for a heavy head.
➢ The strong smell may be too much for sensitive skin. I don’t recommend it to dry or sensitive skin.
➢ The beads “the encapsulated beads gently dissolve to release activities”, please some one ask no marks what on earth do they mean by this statement.
➢ Its gel based so doesn’t expect it to lather much.
The other two variants, for 25+ and teenage may be suitable to other skin types as well but I am yet to try those. The teenage one targets acne and those two are blue and yellow tubed as far as I remember. I AM willing to try them and repurchase these, especially on days when I break out.
Last word: These are worth a try. I recommend it to oily skin club and acne prone pimple skin. If are looking for a solution to lighten tan and pigmentation and skin tone and mainly to even out skin tone, it’s a good product. If you are looking for a solution to fight acne and oil, without being harsh and looking for some thing for the long run but something that will not strip the moisture off your face, I will suggest giving it a try, ONLY if you are okay with the smell of clove oil!
