Hi All !!
Lets start with our first review.
Today, I am going to review Episoft cleansing lotion. I have oily skin and acne prone skin. I have used Clean and Clear, Neutrogena and all other face washes which claim to control oil and prevent acne. Both Clean & Clear and Neutrogena have been good in what they claim. But, due to some marks and pimples, I went to a dermatologist who prescribed me Episoft Cleansing Lotion for sensitive skin. So, I tried this too :).
Cost : Rs. 155 for 125ml
Availability may be an issue but you will be able to find it in medical stores like Apollo etc. and normal ones too.
Ingredients are gentler as compared to other face washes.
Main constituents are Cetyl Alcohol, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Cetostearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol.
You can see, ingredient list is quite gentle as compared to other face washes.
Texture Very light weight and non-greasy. Not very thick in consistency as you can see from the images below.
- It does what it claims, leaves skin clean.
- Doesn’t give rashes.
- Leaves no oiliness or dryness on skin.
- Very gentle and mild. Great for acne prone and sensitive skin.
- Doesn’t cause skin to break out.
- Less quantity needs to be used.
- Smart packaging. Travel- friendly, easy to carry.
- Non scented, no fragrance
- Availability is an issue. Available at some medical stores, chemists only.
- Doesn’t remove makeup but it is not intended to :).
I found it quite good, really light weight in texture and has been designed especially for sensitive skin. It is non greasy and leaves the skin smooth with neither oiliness or dryness, just as it is. No fragrance at all, non scented. I have used Cetaphil too and loved that. Cetaphil’s composition is somewhat strong as that is able to remove makeup too. Episoft doesn’t do that as it is gentler and milder and that’s what it is meant for :). I personally love Cetaphil as my skin is not that much sensitive. But yes, Episoft works very well and is a boon for ones with sensitive, acne prone skin.
I would give this 4 out of 5.
