Today I am going to review one of the most popular fairness products in India – the Fair and Lovely Fairness Face Wash. If you go and watch television for 30 minutes, you will see 5 ads on Fair and Lovely. Won’t you? Ok leave that now. Come let us check how this product fared for me.
Fair & lovely advanced multivitamin face wash gently cleanses and lifts away impurities to provide;
- Instant fairer look
- Soft and smoother feel
- Brighter and clearer skin
For best results, use twice daily along with Fair & Lovely advanced multi vitamin cream.
Rs.25 for 20 g
Gently massage on wet face and rinse well.
My Take on Fair & Lovely Fairness Face Wash:
I am not one girl who loves fairness products. I purchased this mini tube only for travel usage. It comes in a white sleek tube with a pink screw cap. This makes the product very handy, easy to use and travel friendly.
The face wash is moderately thick in consistency and white in color. I somehow feel that the consistency is similar to a shampoo. The fragrance is same as the Fair and Lovely fairness cream – nothing bad or over powering. My mom who is a lover of Fair & Lovely Anti Marks Fairness Cream loves this face wash’s fragrance too.
On application, the face wash lathers very well and leaves skin sqeaky clean with a single splash of water. A very little quantity lathers really a lot. It doesn’t leave any slippery feel behind. It instantly brightens face and freshens up the skin but the reason behind that is – It not only takes away the impurities and dirt to give you that ‘fair’ look but also the essential moisture from your facial skin. Yes! It left my skin stretchy and tight. After two days of usage, I even experienced some acne breakouts. Though it instantly makes skin bright, my skin turns back to its normal state after 1-2 hours.
Overall, I didn’t like this fairness face wash much as it broke me out and made my skin drier. It might suit people with extremely oily skin. Surely a no-no product for dry skin types!

MABH Rating: 3/5
Do I Recommend?:
I don’t recommend this product. Its not a ‘must’ one in your stash. But if you are extremely oily skinned and eyeing out for an instant oil clearing, brightening face wash with an affordable price tag, you can give this a try.
Would I Recommend?:
It broke me out! So no. I am not picking it again at all.
