CONS

Strong smell


After years of struggling with breakouts during my teenage years, I’m still going in and out of dermatological treatments in my early twenties. It never really goes away, so I have been advised to follow a strict skin care routine with carefully selected products. It’s difficult to find a face wash that benefits my skin’s needs the way I want it. My dermatologist advised me to use a mild face wash that will keep my oil balance intact. After trying out several face washes from different companies, I decided to give Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Wash a try. It claims to clean your face while also balancing the oil through a 3-way action formula:

1. Kaolin Clay: It consists of natural minerals that absorb excess oil without removing the essential nutrients from the skin.

2. Glycerin: It retains natural moisture of the skin, preventing the skin from drying.

3. Neem: It helps in preventing pimples with the help of its anti-germ properties.

My skin does not react negatively to it, and the changes I’ve seen are completely unexpected. On first application, the smell came off too strong for me but I let it pass due to the claims it has put forward. Coming to the texture, when I squeezed it on my palm, it looked like a lotion because of its creamy texture and I am a fan of it. It’s neither too thick nor very runny. On forming lather, it is smooth and foams just the right amount. As I was massaging the face wash on my skin, it felt soft like butter. The feeling after I dried my face was remarkable. I mean, first of all, my skin felt clean, free from oil, but moisturized at the same time. And for at least 7 hours, I didn’t feel the need to wash my face again. It is pretty impressive that finally after a while, I found a product that does what it claims. I will suggest this face wash to people having problems with oiliness and breakouts. It is especially great for combination skin types. Girls, finally here’s a product that will not dry your skin nor make it greasy.

4/5

PROS

Moisturizes your skin

Suitable for combination and oily skin

Easily available

Refreshes your skin

No harsh ingredients

Prevents acne

True to its claims

CONS

Not suitable for dry skin


What caught my attention was this product’s claim because I have combination skin type and it’s really hard to find the perfect skin care products. So when I came across this product, within a heartbeat, it was in my cart. I will say, my skin is thanking me for finding the missing puzzle piece. My T-zone oil is under control and the rest of my face has balanced moisture. I think everyone with combination skin will love this face wash. And for pimple-prone skin, it is a blessing.

PROS

Softens the skin

Controls oil

Prevents pimples

Improves skin quality

CONS

Strong smell

Does not lather well


I have been using Lacto Calamine Daily Face Care Lotion for oily skin for quite some time now, so I thought of bringing uniformity to my skin care regimen and decided to change my face wash. So I purchased Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Wash and started using it. The combination is like hot fudge with vanilla ice cream! My skin stays oil-free the whole day and I have bid adieu to pimples for almost a year now. Yes, once in a while when I tend to take my skin for granted, I get one/two pimples, but that’s about it. And it is true that this alone will not work miracles on your skin. I am checking my diet and drinking lots of water. But I will say that Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Wash is a booster, the right start to your skincare routine, and definitely a keeper.

3.5/5

PROS

Inexpensive

Pleasant fragrance

CONS

Not suitable for dry skin

Does not lather well

Skin feels patchy and stretchy


I was looking forward to this face wash after reading and hearing so much about it, but what a bummer! I did not realize that it will be drying on dry skin and I just went for it. After every face wash, my skin is left dry and feeling patchy. I’m not sure if i’m going to continue using it. I could have used it as body wash but it does not form much foam – so that’s a big no too. I am probably going to give it to an oily skin type friend. I wish Lacto Calamine comes up with a similar formulation for dry skin because based on what I’ve heard from others, it is a good skin care product.
