Heylo my dear Buttercups!
Oily skin has been taking a toll on me for quite some time now. A couple of years back, my skin was constantly troubled with acne and then suddenly a phase came when my skin got divorced from the zits.
From the past few months, these monsters have surfaced again and my skin is really very worried. I really needed a good face-wash other than the other products exclusively for acne prone skin. Finally, this is what I zeroed on!
Saslic face-wash by Cipla.
As you can see, the pH of this face wash is 5.5 which is also the normal pH of our skin. The surprising fact is that the normal bar soaps have a pH of around 9-10, which changes the balance present in the skin and thus result in the overgrowth of bacteria and hence causing acne.
Directions for use.
Saslic comes in two strengths : 1% and 2% salicylic acid. Salicylic acid cleansers unclog the pores and reduce the inflammation caused by a breakout. I have been using it twice a day for quite some time now and let me tell you that this face-wash really works. The skin feels so soft and clean after using this regularly. Salicylic acid actually promotes proper shedding of skin making it clearer.
It’s a pale orange pump dispenser.
On pressing the pump, the product comes out in a foam, which is a little runny. Two pumps are enough to use it over the entire face.
I have seen a visible difference in my skin after using it for almost a month. But,that doesn’t mean that it stops acne from errupting. But the frequency has reduced drastically and they dry up soon too.My nose has a lot of whiteheads and after using this cleanser, I have seen them reduce too.
Though this face-wash should be used only on the advice of the dermatologist, but I went ahead and got this for myself on my own risk. I would advise you all to take a dermatologist’s opinion before using it.
