I have a super soft corner for organic products when it comes to skin care. They can be used without any worries and are gentle on skin. So, as soon as I neared Patanjali counter, I got my hands on this. I had never tried Patanjali facewash before, hence I was a bit skeptic in the beginning but still wanted to give it a shot. I’ve been using this facewash for a week now, so let’s get started with the review.
Patanjali has launched 7 variants(1) in face washes viz.
- Lemon Honey face wash
- Orange Aloevera face wash
- Honey Orange face wash
- Aloevera Mint facewash
- Rose face wash
- Neem Tulsi face wash
- Saundarya face wash
Coming to the product:
Texture: It has gel kind of a texture which is light green in colour.
Fragrance: It has a weird rubber smell which is not pleasant at all. It can be faintly related to Neem leaves’ smell. I was happy that at least no fragrance has been added to this product but then at the back side of the tube, the ingredient list says “sugandhit dravya”. I don’t understand whether the smell is due to ingredients or it’s artificial.
Base Material: Aqua, Gel base, Sugandhit Dravya, Diazolidinyl urea & IPBC, Vitamin E, Colour
Extracts: Aloe Vera, Azadirachta Indica (Neem) & Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi)
With a little research, I found out that Diazolidinyl urea & IPBC are blend of two preservatives and also retain moisture in the skin.
Neem helps in fighting acne while tulsi soothes the skin and improves its texture.
Packaging: It comes in a tube packaging as shown in the pic. It is quite travel friendly and spill proof.
Price: 60g of product retails for 45Rs and has a shelf life of 18 months.
Usage: The face wash is for normal to oily skinned people. It has soap free herbal formula. The description says it needs to be massaged for a minute over wet face and then rinse. Actually, I massage it for about 30 seconds because I cannot hold my breath longer than this (I strongly dislike the smell, ofcourse). After rinsing off with water, my face becomes squeaky clean but there is no stretchy feeling unlike many other facewashes tend to give. It doesn’t irritate the skin and makes it soft, supple and clean. It helps in reducing the pimples and also prevents them.
The Verdict: After using this face wash for a week now, I can say that it is a decent product at this price. You shouldn’t expect miracles out of it. It effectively cleanses the face and also doesn’t suck out the moisture. I have very sensitive skin and it has not irritated me at all. I use it daily at night before going to bed. (I donot use a facewash in the morning, instead I use Saslic facewash – You can read the review Here). I recommend this for daily use. I, myself, am planning to use this alternatively with my other facewashes because herbal products should be a part of our beauty regime.
Result: ☺️ (Happy!)
