Arshita has already reviewed the Avon Care Fairness Cream and today I willll be reviewing its counterpart face wash! This too has licorice extracts which are supposed to make the skin fairer. So let us take a look at how this face wash turned out!
Rs 99 for 50 g
New Avon Care Fairness Face Wash effectively cleanses up dirt, excess oils and lipids without over dry the skin, leaving skin clean, refreshed, soft and smooth with glow. Formulated with licorice extract. Gentle to the skin. Suitable for everyday use. Allergy tested. Dermatologist tested.
My Take on Avon Care Fairness Face Wash:
It comes in an opaque tube packaging with a screw on cap. I find the flip-open cap much easier to use than this one. It is a bit inconvenient when you have squeezed out some face wash in one hand and then with one hand you are holding the tube and with the other you are trying to screw on the cap on the tube – with half your palm, ninja-style.
The face wash is colorless for all practical purposes; it has a very slight yellow tint, if I have to be precise. I like that it lathers easily and it washes off relatively easily too. It has a very pleasant fruity fragrance.
Coming to the fairness part – it is not true. Shock. Horror. Gasp. Whatever. Anyway, the reason I bought this is because I know licorice extracts are supposed to help remove tan – which is why I thought this face wash would help me. I tan like ‘crazy’. Anyway, it doesn’t help much with the tan per se, but my face looks squeaky clean and fresh and rejuvenated after I use it, which is good enough for me.
Also, it didn’t break me out. I can get away with not using a moisturizer but dry-skinned beauties will definitely need a moisturizer after using this. Another problem I have with this is that it stings my eyes a bit. But oh well, I can spend two extra minutes to make sure no face wash gets into my eye. Girls with sensitive eyes – you may want to reconsider.
Why I like this Face Wash?:
- Reasonably priced
- Leaves skin looking very clean and rejuvenated
- Rinses off easily
- Did not break me out
- Does not overly dry out skin
- Gentle on the skin
- Lovely fragrance
Why I don’t like this Face Wash?:
- Stings eyes slightly
- Screw on cap is a bit inconvenient
- Fairness claim is not true
MABH Rating: 4/5
If you remove the fairness claim, it is a great face wash. It is allergy and dermatologist tested so girls with sensitive skin can rejoice. It leaves skin looking cleansed and fresh and does not take forever to lather and rinse off. I think that’s all we girls need from a budget face wash, don’t we? :)
Will I repurchase?:
Yes, I will!
