Having Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin is really tough to manage. Dirt, pollution, and grease throughout the day make our skin look dull and make us uncomfortable. At that moment, all we want a face wash which can simply rip off the excess oil and stickiness without leaving a trace of it. That squeaky clean feeling is really satisfying. Isn’t it? In today’s post, I am sharing my experience on ACNES Clarifying Face Wash. Let us get into the details.

Product Description

ACNES Clarifying Face Wash is a daily face wash with a mild peeling effect suitable for all skin types. Its gentle action on the skin provides light exfoliation, polishes the skin surface to look fairer and refines its texture for visible smoothness. It forms a rich lather that washes away dirt and oil without stripping off skin’s natural moisture, giving the skin a brighter look along with a complimentary rejuvenating feel.

ACNES is Japan’s leading Acne Care Brand which aims for healthier, acne-free and glowing skin. ACNES is a Brand of Rohto Pharma which is Japan’s Leading Healthcare Company.

I got to know about ACNES Brand in November 2016. It was new to me and the packaging was different at that time. I had a good experience with ACNES products which you can read here. After two years, ACNES came up with new packaging and new products and I guess with new and improved formulation too because this time, I had an awesome experience with their products. I also attended the ACNES Launch Event in Delhi where they launched ACNES Menthol Face Wash and Body Bars. It was another great experience. 😍
They have complete acne care range i.e, cleanser, toner and acne clear gel but in this post, I will be sharing my review on their clarifying face wash only which I recently restocked. 😍

Review of ACNES Clarifying and Whitening Face Wash

Packaging: It comes in a squeezable plastic tube with a flip flop cap which is easy to carry in the handbag and is mess free. The nozzle controls the flow of the product and doesn’t spill a lot of at a time.

Colour and Consistency: It is white in colour with easy to use creamy consistency. It is neither too thick nor a runny face wash. It doesn’t need much of your effort to form into the lather. 😃

Fragrance: The Fragrance has a mixed scent of refreshing and medicated fragrance which feels good. It doesn’t feel strong or disturbing and is comfortable with our nose. 

My Experience with ACNES Clarifying Face Wash

There are two types of oil-free cleansers. One, which gives you squeaky clean feeling with comfortable dryness which we oily skin people love and second, which leaves a layer of moisture while taking off the dirt and oil. This one gives me a total cleansed feeling with a squeaky clean feeling and touch. Like while washing off, I can literally feel my skin is cleansed.

It is a deep cleanser and I feel like it takes off all the dirt, oil, grease like a magnet from my pores. After that sticky and sweaty feeling in summers and humidity, I love that satisfying dryness which this cleanser leaves. I am sure people with excessive oily and sweaty skin can feel this.

If you have normal, dry or combination skin this won’t work for you as it will be a really tough cleanser for your skin. Also, I have noticed, it kind of disturb the skin texture. Maybe because it is way too strong. I don’t feel like my skin is smooth. Like, it does the job of cleaning the skin but it doesn’t maintain or Improve the skin texture. I don’t know if it is with me only. 😀

Along with deep cleansing, it takes away the dullness and brings on the bright fresh face. I guess this is what they meant by the whitening claim. 😃 I don’t run behind whitening products but I assume that by whitening, they are focusing on brightening properties. Though that brightness stays for a short time and my skin gets covered back with dirt and sweat during the day.

Coming to the effectiveness of pimples, it worked. But this only works on pimples caused by dirt, bacteria or excess oil and not on pimples caused by other reasons such as diet, hormones or when a product doesn’t suit or anything.

Sad part? It does contain parabens. Even though it did the job, I am not going to buy it again because I don’t want to continue using a paraben added product. Surprisingly, I noticed this with my second tube. 😃

Next, I continue my skincare routine with toner and paraben-free moisturizer.

ACNES Clarifying vs. Purifying Face Wash

ACNES Face Wash comes in 3 or 4 varieties I guess naming Clarifying and whitening, purifying and foaming, mentho-cool, and Aloe Moisturizing Face Wash. I like Purifying and Foaming version a bit better than this one as it is more foaming and the texture is slightly better than this Clarifying one. Though all the cleansers in this range are almost similar and suit my skin oily skin I guess it is just texture and feel on the skin. 😃 Mentho-Cool on the other end gives a cooling effect that’s another exciting point. But in the end, it is personal choice and satisfaction. 😇

In short,

ACNES face wash is good for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin. It is a strong and deep cleansing face wash which takes out all the dirt, oil and sweat like a magnet and brings on the fresh, bright and squeaky clean face. ACNES Face Wash is effective on pimples caused by dirt and bacteria and worked on my acne and marks with noticeable results be it Clarifying Range or Purifying but not much effective on pimples caused by poor diet, hormones or any other reason. But, it does contains Parabens and might disturb your skin texture.
