Organic Harvest Skin Lightening Face Wash Review

Organic harvest Face Wash

A big hello to all my glossy readers 🙂

I don’t support lightening and whitening claims. I don’t but whitening creams ever though I am not fair and have wheatish complexion. We Indians have some fetish for fair complexion and thats why these fairness creams and products are such a rage these days. I personally know some gals out there who buy and try every product that mentions ‘whitening’ or ‘fairness’.

So, why did I buy this!!
Actually, before my Andamans trip, I went for sunscreen hunt to my local market and there, Organic Harvest was having an exclusive counter. I got their sunscreen and quite liked it. You can see the review here. Then, she showed to me some scrub which was again very good and this cleanser. She told me that this cleanser is very good for oily skin and since I am going to beach holidays, it would keep tanning at bay to some extent. I thought that sunscreen+cleanser combo would definitely help me there.

Did it work for me?
Nope. I was not expecting any lightening. But then, I didn’t even found it to be a good cleanser. My skin never felt good after using it. Being oily, I felt that it left my skin a bit on greasy side. Then, my apprehension came true, I started having pimples in two days. Thank God, that was before my trip. I have stopped using it completely and shifted back to my HG cleanser Cetaphil For OS. 


Though the cleanser claims to have many benefits like it is paraben free, mineral oil free etc. But it didn’t work for me. Still, I want to try that body scrub from Organic Harvest but no cleanser from the brand for me again.

Packaging –
It comes in a dark green opaque tube with a flip opening. The tube is good and sturdy and locks tightly. It is travel friendly too.
The cleanser itself is creamy and whitish in colour and goes on smoothly on the skin. It rinses off well but leaves a greasy feeling to me. It doesn’t remove makeup. It doesn’t lighten the complexion or so as per claims.

The smell is too herbal for me but I don’t mind that. If it would have worked, I would have been happy with the smell too.


What Organic Harvest says about the cleanser –
A cream face wash enriched with naturally driven surfactant that cleanses your skin to have a lightened skin tone. The Morus Alba (white mulberry) extract helps in skin whitening, brightening, shining and lightening. Nature certified natural plant derived actives used in this face wash have NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factors) for longer moisturization.

Pros –
  • Quite sturdy tube with tight flip open cap.

  • Doesn’t cause any stretching, makes skin smooth and soft.
  • Doesn’t contain parabens and other harmful chemicals.
  • Little quantity is required.
  • May suit dry skin well.


Cons –
  • It leaves my skin a little bit greasy.
  • Doesn’t suit my oily skin. Caused breakouts.

Overall Rating –
I would not buy this one again. My current one is also lying waste. Maybe I can use that in winters or will give it to someone. If you really believe in Organic Harvest, then gals with dry skin can definitely give this a shot. I know their products are good enough but this cleanser failed on me.

  24. its sounds the review
    i really dont like lightening cream,ladies here misuse them so much and they look awful after awhile
    keep intouch

  25. Aw that's awful…I use this skin brightener from Obagi called Sunfader and it's awesome! Works like a dream to slowly remove those sun spots. It's medicated so you can't purchase over the counter but sounds like what you're looking for…

    Peace. Love. LOL!
