Hello dear people! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you all are doing great… 🙂
So, what is that one beauty product you are guilty of hoarding?
For me, it is face washes! 😀
I love collecting different face washes and although I have stopped hoarding these days, I still have a pile of face washes on my bathroom shelf… 😛
Today, I am going to review a face wash from my stash, which I actually like quite a lot!
Read on to know all about it…

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Urban Botanics tea tree, basil & neem face wash comes in a sturdy but bulky, plastic tube with a transparent flip-cap. The label around the tube has all the necessary details about the product, including the complete list of ingredients, usage directions and caution printed on it.
This face wash is colourless and transparent and has a slightly runny, gel-like consistency. It has a beautiful fragrance of basil, which I love! ❤️
The fragrance is quite mild and I don’t think that it is going to bother sensitive noses much…
The face wash doesn’t lather much but still, it cleanses the skin well… I take a coin-sized amount of the gel and massage it on wet skin for a minute or so, before washing it off… It removes all the dirt, oil and impurities and makes my face feel refreshed! ❤️
This face wash is quite gentle and contains several antibacterial ingredients… Hence, I feel that it may also help prevent/reduce the acne caused due to impurities and bacterial growth…
I have a normal skin type right now and this face wash doesn’t dry out my skin but it does make my face feel a bit stretchy…
So, in my opinion, it is best suited for oily to normal skin types, while it may dry out drier skin types…
