Hey Guys! I bring to you another post where I am going to tell you everything you need to know about the cleansers. A complete guide on what’s the purpose of the cleansers, and what you should pick basis your skin type.
While writing about this post, I wanted to review the Fab India facial cleanser which I have been using lately. So let’s begin..
Cleansers are the very first step to your skincare routine. We all know very well that our skin is in constant contact with dust, pollution, bacteria, germs. These problems if not removed time and again, will cause trouble to your skin.
This is why we need cleansers. They help in removing these problems, thereby letting your skin breathe and ensuring that it comes back to its natural state. By cleansing you are removing the likelihood of your skin getting blocked and infected.
With the variety available in the market, I am sure you would be confused. But let me simplify it for you.
What your skin type is depends on what is the texture of your skin after washing your face. Does it feel dry, itchy or flaky sometimes? If yes, then you have dry skin type. Is your skin breaking out from excess oil on your face? Then probably you have oily skin.
After understanding your skin type, the next step is to understand the types of cleansers.
So there are basically four types of cleanser textures – gel, lotion, cream and oil. Now which one suits you? Find out now –
There are different packaging for different cleansers. They are available in tubes, pot, pump and bottles. Packaging depends on the texture of the cleanser. For example, cream or oil based cleansers are most likely to be found in pump or pot packaging. Gel and lotion based cleansers are most likely to come in tube or bottles. However there is no hard and fast rule around it.
Nowadays there are multi-purpose cleansers available in the market. There would be cleansers that exfoliate the skin or some that brightens the skin.
With additional ingredients and multi-purpose cleansers comes lot of chemicals. This in turn will imbalance the pH level of your skin that isn’t healthy.
Therefore, it is highly crucial for you to understand which cleansers you should put your hands on.
Yes there are cleansers that might break you out. There are primarily two reasons for a cleanser to break you out –
My suggestion is to first understand your skin type and then pick the cleanser. You can also choose to go for more natural products.
I have used many cleansers, from drugstores to high-end and I do have favorites. Having an acne prone skin, I generally avoid cleansers that are filled with chemicals. If not then at least they should be paraben and sulphate free.
Such cleansers have proved to be healthier for my skin and doesn’t disturb my pH level. However I still use toners because they make a huge difference to my skin.
The product is 100% natural and feels amazing on the skin. I have posted the complete review of this product on Products I recommend from Forest Essentials, so do give it a read.
Having said that, I found Fab India selling their paraben and sulphate free face wash about an year ago. I decided to give it a try and review it for the benefit of larger audience.
If you ever wished to have a mild facial cleanser, then you got one from Fab India. This brand has variety of facial cleansers but only two that are paraben and sulphate free.
Let’s talk about how pleasant these products smell. Wild rose has a rose fragrance and haldi chandan has a pleasant refreshing chandan fragrance. The fragrance is not overpowering for me.
The ingredient list is lengthy and I have included the picture for everyone’s reference. Good thing about this product is that, it’s paraben and sulphate free.
Texture of the product is a white creamy consistency.Fab India has relaunched their packaging and to be honest I am not a huge fan of that. It is an old white broad tube that has product of quite thinner consistency.
I mean if the consistency of the product gets thinner, don’t you think it should be in a pump bottle instead of a tube. A pump would not waste the product the way it is being wasted in the tube.
Anyways, I hope Fab India does something about their face wash packaging as it seriously needs help.
