Hello Gorgeous Ladies!! ❤❤❤
How is everyone doing? 😀
Any oily skinned beauties out there? 😛
Well, if you are, you might be facing the same struggle as me.. The shiny T-zone, blackheads and enough oil secretion on the face to get a fry done, that too just within a couple of hours of washing the face… XD
I don’t even dare to go for heavy makeups during the hot days, because no Foundation or compact has been able to keep a check on my sebum secretion or remain on my face without melting for more than two hours, till date.. 🙁
Admist all these issues, one of the most common problem for us is choosing a good face wash that wouldn’t make the face stretchy and still keep the oil at a bay for a good amount of time.. 😀
I have been experimenting with quite a few face washes these days and today I am going to review one of my favourite face washes from my stash! ❤❤❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Aroma magic grapefruit face wash comes in a sleek yellow coloured translucent tube with Beautiful pink flowers over it.. The cap shuts tight, without leakage making it completely travel friendly!! ❤❤❤
The face wash is a transparent yellow liquid with medium to runny consistency and smells of rose water mixed with lemon juice, which is quite refreshing yet mild and so, won’t be troublesome for sensitive noses! (I am very bad at describing fragrances) 😛
I have been using this face wash quite often now-a-days and the first thing that I noticed about it was that it doesn’t dry out the face completely like the Aroma Magic neem face wash.. 😀 It does make my combination-oily skin a bit dry during the days when the temperature is slightly low, so it might make your skin a little too dry if your skin is more on the normal side..
Also, this face wash never broke me out, neither did it increase any pre-existing acne… In fact it actually calmed down the redness of the live acnes a bit.. ❤❤❤
The face wash claims to lighten and brighten the skin.. Now I don’t believe in the lightening or fairness claims of any cosmetic products because till day I have never seen any product that has lightened my skin tone! 😛 But yes, upon Washing the face, it does brighten up the skin to some extent, removing the dirt and oil, and the skin feels quite refreshed! 😀
It also controls sebum secretion for a good amount of time.. Although I haven’t seen any visible tightening of the pores.. 😛
But then, when the oil production on my face is under check, it hardly matters to me if the pores are tightened or not! XD
My T zone generally gets shiny in less than half an hour of washing my face, which was delayed by about an hour on using the face wash.. And that’s more than enough for me! ❤❤❤
