Hello dear people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 😀
Well, if you too have oily skin you would agree with me that it is simply a nuisance…
But let me tell you what’s worse?!
Oily skin + summer! 😛
So, as the summer approached a few months back, I went crazy looking for a good oil cleansing face wash to pull out all the oil and gunk from my skin! Luckily, I came across quite a few interesting ones and Organic Harvest oil control face wash was one of them!
I have been using this face wash for quite some time now and today, I am going to review it for you all! 😀
Read on to know if it worked well for me! ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Organic Harvest oil control face wash comes in a dark green-coloured plastic tube with a sturdy white flip-cap. The overall packaging is really durable, leak-proof and travel-friendly… However, there is one thing I did not like about it, is that the tubes do not come with an initial seal of any sort! So, one would never know if the product has been used/tampered with before buying! 🙁
Also, even though the brand mentions that the face wash is free of harmful chemicals and is organic, the list of ingredients present on the product is incomplete and that is disappointing!
Other than that, the packaging contains most of the necessary details about the product…
The face wash has a medium to runny consistency and translucent, dirty-yellowish colour. It has a citrusy-herbal fragrance which is neither pleasant nor unpleasant… Anyway, the smell is quite mild and I don’t think that it is going to bother the sensitive noses at all! 😀
The face wash doesn’t lather much but still does its job pretty well! I require just a little more than a pea-sized amount for each use… The face wash cleanses the skin perfectly and washes away all the dirt, oil and grime from the skin surface, leaving it absolutely clean and fresh… ❤
The brand also claims to “control” the oil secretion on the face and remove the dullness by making the skin “lighter“. However, even after using the face wash for more than two weeks, I could not see any difference in my skin tone or any delay in the oil secretion…
So, yes, it is not going to control your sebum or lighten your complexion, but it definitely works as a good oil cleansing face wash! 😛
Now, I have a combination-oily skin type which gets really oily at times… This face wash usually doesn’t leave my face dry… Although, it sometimes does make the drier areas of my face (cheeks and corner of the lips) feel a bit stretchy post use… So, in my opinion, this face wash is best suited for combination-oily to extremely oily skin types and I would not recommend people with other skin types to use it!
Additionally, this face wash doesn’t break out the skin or aggravate live acne… So, people with acne-prone oily skin too can give it a try! ❤
