Summer is already here and my skin has started showing oil, greasiness, rashes, and breakouts. I have oily to combination skin where my T zone gets super oily during summers which is why i always need face washes that are meant specifically for oily and acne prone skin. Though i have my own favourites for that but i am also always open and sincerely lookout for different oil clear face washes. And today i am going to review one such face wash which was launched last year from the famous Natural and Ayurvedic brand “VICCO”. Its called Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base Face Wash. So Let’s get started with the review 🙂
Keep reading to find out how did it work for me 😀
Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base Face Wash Review
Price: Rs. 80 for 70 gms. /Available online @amazon for Rs. 80 (70 gms)
Its Ayurvedic formula with microbicidal properties of turmeric is extremely beneficial as an effective medicine for the prevention and cure of pimples, blackheads and oily skin with every wash. It also helps in preventing and curing skin infections, rashes and allergies. It helps to stop the bleeding of minor wounds and heals them, treats minor cuts and small injuries as well.
It comes in a white plastic tube packaging contrary to the Vicco’s standard yellow packaging. The tube comes inside a white-blue-gold carton box, where both box and the tube bear a prominent turmeric design on top and the product name written in bold. I really like this packaging as it looks more classy and attractive than the yellow one. The tube comes with a screw cap on top which shuts tightly and hence is quite travel friendly.
Texture and ingredients:
The face wash is dark brown in color and has a gel like consistency. It has a very strong medicinal smell which somehow reminds me of Men’s shaving gel. The smell can be refreshing for some people as its medicinal, but it irritates me a lot as its too strong for me. The formula of the face wash is easy to rinse off. The smell fades away soon once the faces is washed with water.
The complete list of ingredients is not provided on the pack. And the main ingredient mentioned is extract of Turmeric. Turmeric is effective in treating acne and pimples because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Turmeric is also beneficial for oily skin since it controls excessive oil secretion. It also reduces skin pigmentation and signs of ageing.
I have been using this face wash for a month now for cleansing out my face. It requires just a pea size amount to wash the entire face. Hence the small tube lasts a long time. It lathers quite well and is very easy to rinse. It gives a cooling effect upon applying and even stays for some time after washing. I have oily skin and my T zone gets super oily in summers which is why i am always on a lookout for an oil clear face wash. And this one removes all the oil and dirt effectively and gives a squeaky clean face. After every wash, I found my skin looking clean and even toned. Skin feels smooth, refreshed but not dry and my face remains oil free for good 2-3 hours. It also really helps on my break outs and acne, and i have noticed it minimizing the acne bumps and pimples on my face. It has also reduced the appearance of fresh pimples and breakouts on my skin. It also clean up pores well and does not cause any irritation to the skin.
The face wash works best on oily skin as it helps in cleaning out the oil from the face but as it is not a drying face wash, it will be equally good on dry skin with a good moisturizer post wash. Though, this face wash claims to clear and control blackheads, but i have not seen much improvement on my blackheads . My face certainly needs a scrub for clearing blackheads out and keeping them in control.
I surely recommend the Vicco turmeric cream with foam base for all skin types as it is an affordable and effective face cleanser. It thoroughly cleans out oil, dirt and deep seated impurities from the skin. It also helps in minimizing and reducing the appearance of acne and breakouts on the face. Its Ayurvedic formulation does not cause any harm or allergy to the skin. The face wash is unisex and can be used by both men and women. Only i wish the smell could have been a little less and not overpowering.
