Come here all my oily fellas.
I have got something for you that you will love. A perfect face wash for oily skin – Saslic DS Foaming Face Wash. A heaven in cute bottle.
Lets know how it performs and in what conditions. What to do and what not to do with this one and how to use it !!
Saslic DS Foaming Face Wash – My Experience with it
I got this gem when my Cetaphil Cleanser for oily skin was finished and I could not get new one anywhere, no where available it was (my chemist got it for me some days later J). But till then, I have got this one and I am happy for that.
Saslic face wash come in two variants – Saslic and Saslic DS.
Saslic face washhas lesser concentration of salicylic acid, say 1% and suits most of the skin types.
Saslic DS face washhas a little bit higher concentration of salicylic acid, say 2% and is meant for more oily, acne prone skin.
I got Saslic DS for myself as I have very oily, acne prone skin and needed something for me that can make me float through summers and humidity easily without the breakouts and those unwanted pimples!! My wishes came true and this one worked for me J.
I was a little afraid to use this thinking that what would that 2% salicylic acid do to me. Yes, it does but nothing negative. The bottle looks quite good quality wise. A transparent one with hint of purple that contains transparent liquid. It has a spray pump to take out the product and a single spray is enough for your full face. Hence, the little quantity you see in bottle goes for almost 2 months with regular usage. Quite good for its results. You will not be disappointed. The transparent liquid when comes out on your hand, turns to white foam. Quite innovative J. I like that white foam!!
It is very light, doesn’t lather much but cleanses very well. It leaves my face squeaky clean and has stopped any new pimples or acne occurrence and reduces oil too. How I use it – just take a spray pump of this white foamy wash, apply on wet face, let it sit for 20-30 seconds and wash off. You are done J.

When not to use Salicylic acid based face washes –
Stop using salicylic acid based face washes when you are on some medication for your face, like you are using some hydroquinone based topical creams or any such things. Whenever your doctor suggests you such creams, discuss with him/ her always, about all other products that you can use or not. All sort of products don’t work together all the time.
What to avoid when using Salicylic acid based face washes –
No toner is required afterwards. The ‘T’goes away from your ‘ÇTM’routine. In fact, nothing should be applied for at least 15-20 mins after you use a salicylic acid based face wash. You can use your serums or moisturizers but after 15-20 mins.
Overall Rating –
I would surely recommend it and repurchase it. In fact, I now use my Cetaphil oily skin cleanser and Saslic DS alternatively and I love both. Nothing else. Never. Nothing else works for me, whatever the brand is, or whatever it claims!!
Oily skin beauties or fellas, don’t suffer any more, give this one a try and if it works for you too, then be happy. You have got your HG face wash ;). Don’t experiment much with oily skin. Those over the counter face washes are not meant for us. Found a good one for you and stick with it if you don’t want to end up with face full of pimples most of the year. If nothing works, stop experimenting and go to a dermatologist and use what he/she suggests.
Stay pimple free.
Love you all
