Patanjali is a well known herbal brand. In my hunt of sls free face wash or cleanser I came upon this one after reading few reviews on it. It started giving me nightmares though. Please read further.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 60 for 60 gm
This face pack comes in a boring white plastic tube with a flip top cap. It’s not at all attractive. The cap is really fit. That’s a good and a bad thing because no leaks and travel friendly but it broke my nails twice. The opening is small so no need for excess amount headaches. It fits easily in a small purse.
The fragrance is mild and citrusy. It doesn’t linger after washing so easy on sensitive noses as well.
This cleanser has the consistency of a cream and quite thick. You need good force to get it out of the tube. It is soft and creamy and spreads really well and lathers a lot. A tiny pea sized amount is enough to cover up face so the bottle lasts really long. It washes away without any slippery feel and gives a great glow to your face like you have just used a face pack.
This face wash very good in removing dirt and oil. It removes makeup easily as well and doesn’t clog pores. It kind of made my skin dry but nothing a moisturizer can’t handle. Dry skinned people may find it a lot drying. After some time though, I started sweating a lot and my face looked as if I used some spray or something. Even though sls is not good, I don’t like the sound of neutral detergents. They are used in dishwashers so I am scared at how much my skin can bear. Sensitive people please stay away from this one. I heard two of my friends who have oily skin raving a lot about this so I think you can give it a try.
Why I like?:
- Good herbal brand
- Nice non lingering fragrance
- Removes dirt and oil
- No slippery feeling
- Made out of so many good ingredients
- Gives an amazing face pack glow
- Dead cheap
Why I don’t like?:
- Cap is an enemy to nails. (Arshita please take care of your beautiful nails if you are using this 🙂 we need more nail arts from you)
- Dries out skin a bit
- Face sweats like hell after sometime. I don’t know how much oil it can control since I don’t have any such problems
- Neutral detergent haunts me
Rating: 3 /5
Do I Recommend?:
Yes! Surely for people with oily skin and combination skin maybe. Give it a try.
Would I Repurchase?:
Nope. My nightmares with neutral detergents need to stop. I already switched to pears and I love it. My mom has oily skin too and found it okay. She is 46 so i suggested stopping it since drying skin leads to more wrinkles.
