I have been suffering from adult acne for some time now and so the minute a product claims to reduce acne I make sure to give it a try. That’s what attracted me to the Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash.
Today I will review the Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash; a face wash which is meant to reduce acne.
What the company claims –
Anti-bacterial, acne preventive face wash; fights bacteria, prevents acne; removes dirt and dust, kills acnegenic bacteria present deep inside the pores and fortified with Vitamin C and E.
Price: Rs. 70 for 50g
My Review –
I was travelling almost the entire month of December which increased my acne. I needed something to calm my acne and give me a blemish free skin, especially during the festivities and parties. That’s when I got introduced to this amazing acne face wash. I have been using this face watch for two weeks now.
It comes in a tube packaging which makes it really travel friendly. It is a sturdy tube and the cap is also really good as it did not open up at all (I have had a few instances where the tubes open up and spoil everything in the suite case.)
The face wash has a creamy consistency with a smooth texture. The smell is something that I did not like at all. It has a mix of citrus and chemical smell. The good thing is that it does not linger on the skin.
I use this especially in the evening. It is really good in removing dirt, oil and makeup without drying the skin. The best thing of this face wash is that it is paraben free. There are times when I have used this only on the portion where I’m getting a new pimple and it helps in giving a more clear skin the next day.
I would totally recommend it to people who have oily, normal or combination skin. People with dry skin should avoid using it on the entire face but concentrate only on the area where you are getting a breakout.
Apart from preventing breakouts, it also helps calm pimples also increases the healing time.
I would give this product a 4/5. I would totally recommend it to all. The only downside is the smell of the product.
