Best Face Washes Available in India – Top 7 Picks


A face wash is an integral part of your cleansing regime. Most women prefer a face wash over a cleansing milk to remove dirt, grime and sebum from their skin since face washes do not leave any residue on the skin. The face washes come in different forms – creamy or gel or with exfoliating beads – in order to suit different purposes and skin types. If you have dry skin, then you would need a creamy face wash that will moisturize your skin as it cleanses it. Oily skin would need a gel based face wash since you do not want to add more oiliness to an already oily face. Sometimes they come with active ingredients like salicylic acid to counter pimples. So depending on your requirement, pick a face wash from our list of the best face washes available in India. Wash your face with it twice a day and get fresh and beautiful skin.
