The Face Shop nails it when it comes to creating cleansers for oily skin. This one is highly targeted for people with oily skin and clogged pores. If you live in a polluted city where your skin gets congested due to high toxins in the pollution and excess oil and you love the cleansers which leave your skin squeaky clean, this one is for you.

3. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam

This one works the same The Face Shop Jeju Cleanser works. Just like that one, Innisfree Jeju Face Wash is an effective one to clean your pores deeply. It is highly effective for people with oily and acne-prone skin and prevents the skin from getting pimples and clogged pores.

The only difference between Innisfree and Face Shop Jeju Face Wash is Innisfree one is slightly thick and a bit creamy in consistency while The Face Shop is light and a bit foamy.

Available at Nykaa.

4. Plum Green Tea Pore-Cleansing Face Wash

Price: Rs.345/- for 75ml

I will say, this is worth the price. It has a 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.

5. Himalaya Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash

Price: Rs.115/- (On Discount) for 150ml. 

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. It totally keeps the face oil-free for hours. 

Available at Nykaa.

6. 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 that 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.

7. 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 Nykaa.

8. Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser 

Price: Rs.95/- for 50ml

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

Available at Nykaa.

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 that 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 consists of products that 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. 😊

  3. I have tried a couple of them. A very helpful post

  4. Nice! 😃 I have tried only the Cetaphil one from the above list. Wanna try the neem face wash from Himalaya. I know sounds weird that I haven't used it yet! 😁

  5. The Vicco one is horrible, I used it and it smelt like some strong cologne. I like the Plum variants though.

  6. I used to use The Face Shop cleansing foam face wash in aloe vera variant but couldn't find it online now :(
