Patanjali Activated Carbon Facial Foam Review

Hello everyone, I am from Mumbai.
This is for the first time I am writing on a beauty blog. But ever since I came across IMBB, I am addicted to it. And I describe IMBB to all as an Encyclopedia of Beauty Products!

I really like visiting Patanjali stores… their natural beauty products pull me, and I end up buying even if I don’t need them! So as always I went to their store and saw this new Activated Carbon Facial Foam and it reminded me of Pond’s Activated Carbon face wash, and because this cost lesser, I decided to try it.

Let me tell you the benefits of Activated Carbon. People have been using activated charcoal for thousands of years to detoxify the body and kill germs as well. And because it removes toxins, it can help reduce the instances of acne and other skin impurities you might suffer from. It also works wonders for completely removing makeup.

My Experience on Patanjali Activated Carbon Facial Foam:

I have oily skin. I have been using the face wash for about a month now. It leaves my skin soft on washing and cleans my face well. It kept my face oil-free for a really long time. Winters are on and this facial foam leaves my skin very dry when used early morning. So it’s better to skip this during winters. It lathers well and cleans the skin nicely, and very little quaintly is required to clean the face. After being in the sun for long, I like using this as it gives a cooling effect, maybe because it has mint in it. But once, it went in to my eyes and let me tell you it stings badly. It smells like soap and I don’t like it! My mom also used this, and she has dry and sensitive skin and she said this does not irritate her skin at all.

Pros of Patanjali Activated Carbon Facial Foam:

• Fewer chemicals. More Natural!
• Very small quaintly required to clean the whole face.
• It contains Mint, Aloe, Neem, Honey & Vitamin E, A, Lemon.
• Travel-friendly packaging.
• Not expensive.
• Gives a cooling effect
• Keeps face oil-free for a very long time.
• As activated carbon is known to kill germs, it can work well for acne prone skin.

Cons of Patanjali Activated Carbon Facial Foam:

• Smells like soap. I am sure no one will like it!
• Sting eyes.
• Not good for winters.

IMBB Rating:

3.5 Out of 5

Will I Repurchase Patanjali Activated Carbon Facial Foam?

I don’t think so, Thought, it’s a good face wash, but I feel their other face washes are better for regular use. This can be used by people with acne.
