What I like about this face wash, that it provides a cooling sensation for the first few seconds while washing which feels really great in summers. Cleanses the face really well taking out all the impurities without making the skin dry or stretchy. It also improved my skin texture with daily use, giving me a fresh, radiant, bright, and clear skin.

3) Plum Green Tea Pore-Cleansing Face Wash

Price: Rs.345/- for 75ml

I will say, this is worth the price. It has gel kind of consistency with micro-beads which gives a relaxing massage while washing the face. I feel so relaxed whenever I wash my face with this. Even the fragrance is just too relaxing and refreshing. Cleanses out really well without making skin dry. Leaves no residue of dirt or oil behind. This Green Tea range is most suitable in Plum for Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.

I love the way it feels on the skin. A gel kind of face wash with tiny beads which totally awakens the skin and mind. Takes out all the impurities leaving skin fresh and clean. Doesn't dries out the skin. It balances the moisture level of my skin without giving greasiness. Totally keeps the face oil-free for hours. 

Available at Amazon and Nykaa

5) Himalaya Tan Removal Orange Face Wash

Price: Rs.70/- for 50ml 

Not only oily skin people, but everyone can use this. This is suitable for all skin types. A targeted face wash for tan removal. I really like the refreshing orange fragrance and feel of this face wash. This is again a gel kind of face wash which gently takes out all the impurities from the skin while working on the brightening of the skin. This causes no dryness or excessive oiliness post usage.

6) Rustic Art Organic Lemon Face Wash

Price: Rs.230/- for 100ml 

This is a totally watery face wash and has its own positive feel. 😄 The fragrance is really refreshing. It forms the rich lather and cleanses the face really well. Leaves no residue of dirt, oil, sweat, or even makeup behind. It keeps my skin oil-free for hours without giving the stretchy feel. I really love it. 

Available at Amazon and Nykaa

7) Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser 

Price: Rs.95/- for 50ml

This gives an impression of very mild face wash. Doesn't form much lather but after washing, it really gives a super clean face. Effective for washing out very light makeup but not for washing out heavy makeup. This is great for daily use and takes out all the impurities. Doesn't makes skin dry and keeps my skin oil-free for hours. 😇

Available at Amazon and Nykaa

8) The Nature's Co. Sandalwood Face Wash

The Nature's Co. Sandalwood Face Wash

Price: Rs.695/- for 125ml 

This is a mild and soothing face wash. Perfect for acne irritated skin. Great for cleaning out excess oil and dirt without disturbing the moisture level of the skin. Not for removing heavy makeup. Great for using 3-4 times a day. I feel sometimes that I need to wash my face frequently because of the continuous workout and sweat. For that purpose, these mild face washes are really great which only focus on the removal of excess oil and dirt.

9) Galderma Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Price: Rs.236/- for 125ml 

This is the most recommended face wash for sensitive and acne-prone skin esp. if you have excessive acne issues. 

This might not be the best to treat your acne, but the formula is made to not to irritate your sensitive and acne-prone skin further while cleansing.

This doesn't form much lather but cleans the skin really well. It comes under the category of mild cleansers. If you are purposely looking for a mild cleanser, you can opt for this.

It is from the same Brand "Galderma" whose Benzoyl 2.5% is really famous for fighting acne. 

But if you are someone like whose skin produces an excess of sweat and oil esp. in humidity, then you may find it too mild and will prefer it in only winter days. 

Available at Amazon and Nykaa

10) Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Wash

Price: Rs.170/- for 200ml 

This is the most favorite face wash for the Teenage age group. This is a mild gel-like face wash which deeply cleanses the skin, taking out all the impurities without irritating the acne skin. This is great for general acne issues but not if you have severe acne issues. It really kills the dirty bacteria and keeps my skin fresh and clean. 

Available at Amazon and Nykaa

The above-mentioned list if for both Men and Women. They are not acne-treatment but great for acne-irritated skin or simply for skin which tends to form acne frequently. It helps the skin to breathe and prevent future acne formations while keeping the skin oil-free. 

Please note, this is not something like best in the world. There are more major and high-end products. The list I shared here consist of products which I have personally tried and tested and are affordable. 

So, this was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful. 

Have a Good Day. 😊
