Hi my friends!
Since time immemorial, I have been battling with acne- my most pressing skin issue since puberty. I am always on the hunt for anti acne products. Clean and clear seemed to work for a year or so and then it gave up on me. When things got worse, I had to consult a dermatologist to make peace with my skin. Now that my acne is pretty much under control, I just have to maintain my skin balance and take care of the occasional pop ups.
Fabindia is a pan Indian company that has a skin care range made organically and I love it for that. When I decided to hit the store, as usual I was looking for products to take care of my oily acne prone skin. That is when I spotted their tea tree range. Tea tree oil works well against acne. So I just had to get their face wash as a start. And boy did it work!
An antiseptic face wash ideal for oily skin, containing tea tree oil and turmeric extract. Daily use removes excess sebum reducing acne and pimples.

My Experience with Fabindia Tea Tree Face Wash:
The packaging is a standard one in all Fabindia products. It looks neat and traditional with little motifs. The tube is sort of a mint green color with a flip top. The cap is sturdy and doesn’t leak whatsoever. You can easily manage how much product you want out of the tube.
The face wash is of a gel consistency but a little runnier than that. The product has a transparent base with a light greenish tint to it. I wonder if the smell is an authentic tea tree oil fragrance as I can sense faint kerosene like smell. I don’t know if something is wrong with my nose, but that is what I feel. Nevertheless I don’t find it bothering.
The face wash lathers well and removes all dirt, grime and oil from my face. A small coin sized amount is enough to clean your face and neck. Because of this reason, one tube is sure to last for months and this makes it economical too. It takes me a few more splashes as I feel a slippery film stays behind. But after patting my face dry it doesn’t feel the same. My skin is squeaky clean but not dried out. It stays oil free and shine free for about 3-4 hours.
Now with regards to the main purpose of the product, it ‘does’ keep my pimples and acne at bay. I used to have tiny little pimple here and there, but now it is a case of the past. Looks like the tea tree extracts are working out. Another ingredient which is salicylic acid is effective in clearing pimples. You need to be regular with the usage to notice a big difference. No product can do wonders in a day or two.
