One of the most trusted brands in India, Pears recently had a makeover with its established products having a facelift and new variants being introduced. Looks like ‘masoom’ Pears is now stylish Pears as well! The product featured here is the very basic Pears face wash now available in a new avatar.
Name of the Product: Pears Pure and Gentle Cleansing Face Wash with nourishing milk protein.
Cost: Rs. 50.00 for 60 g
Shelf Life: 2 years
Product Claim: The product’s commercials claim to keep the skin ‘innocent’, i.e. gentle and blemish free.
• Claims to have ‘nourishing milk proteins’.
• Enriched with pure glycerine and natural oils that gently moisturize skin to keep it smooth
• Mild fragrance and soft lather ensure that skin gets a well deserved pampering
• Soap free washing preparation
This face wash is the classic Pears version, in orange color in a clear pack and an orange lid. The clear pack helps you see how much product you have left. The lid is a flip back style, unlike the older version which had a screw cap. It is tight enough and appears to be completely leak proof, making it perfect to carry around in your bag. However, the flow of the product from the tiny hole is a little difficult and requires a little squeezing of the pack.
There isn’t much with regards to product claim printed on the pack. Just one beauty tip: “Handle your skin delicately and wash with a circular motion”.
Directions to use are to squeeze a little gel on your fingertip. Apply on face and work up a lather. However I found it better to put a little gel on your palm, add a little water, lather up and then apply the lather on your face.
The product itself is an almost transparent, yet orange colored gel and works up a mild lather. A little gel is sufficient for use on your face.
Washing off the lather really does make one feel refreshed. The facial skin feels softer to the touch with a mild fragrance. It feels really great to use this product after removing all my makeup before heading to bed. It is very gentle and does not cause any irritation at all to the eyes and skin.
Other variants in the Pears face wash range include:
• Pears Fresh and Gentle with exfoliating beads (blue)
• Pears Oil Clear with lemon flower extract (green)

5. Easy mild fragrance

Cons of Pears Pure and Gentle Cleansing Face Wash:

Verdict: A great face wash!! There was hardly anything wrong about this product and all the claims seem to hold true. Apart from being a tried and tested product, it definitely does justify its main claim – cleans the skin gently while leaving it fresh. I think this would be the perfect facewash for people with sensitive skin that tend to breakout frequently.
Would I buy this again? – I most certainly would!!
