When you have sensitive skin it is really difficult to choose the right kind of skincare product. Products that you apply directly to your face make a huge impact if they are right for your skin and if not, you can almost immediately see the negative effects. I personally am a sensitive skin woman with a combination skin type and there have been times when I regret using something almost immediately after applying it. In Today’s post, I would be talking about 5 Budget Friendly Face Washes that has worked amazingly for my sensitive skin and are easily available in India.
Now, because a face cleanser is something you use on a daily basis, mostly twice, it is very important to be right for you. I won’t say that I have a holy grail face wash which I use daily, but after trying a number of face washes I do have certain favorites!
1. Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash
Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Face Wash is the one very few skincare products that I have repurchased multiple times. I am using this particular product for the past 3 years and I love the simplicity of this product. Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Face Wash has a soap-free formula and the key ingredients include neem and turmeric. Both of these ingredients help in reducing acne and making the skin clear. I personally do not have acne, but I do sometimes develop pimples around my T-Zone. Using this face wash consistently ensures that my T zone remains clear off oil and I have a clean, mark-free face.
The face wash comes in different packaging sizes starting at just 50 ml which retails for only Rs 65. This makes the product even more approachable for everyone, plus it is very easily available both online and in offline stores.
2. Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Ultra Rich Face Wash
Mother Sparsh is a brand that I have discovered very recently and I already have tried a bunch of their products. Amongst the other products that I have tried from Mother Sparsh is their Plant-Powered Ultra Rich Face Wash. This is a plant-based face wash and is unlike any other I have tried before.
The consistency of Mother Sparsh Plant-Powered Ultra Rich Face Wash is almost gel-like, which lathers perfectly with water. It feels very thick and very moisturizing while applying. Surprisingly even after cleaning the face with water, the face feels super moisturized and hydrated. Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Ultra Rich Face Wash contains unique components like Vanilla Oil, Earth Marine Oil, Tejpatra Oil that aids to provide nutrient-rich balanced hydration to the skin. Using this face wash as a part of my skincare regime has helped my skin feel soft and bouncy.
The key ingredients of Mother Sparsh Plant-Powered Ultra Rich Face Wash include Earth Marine Water which helps to re-mineralize the skin while replenishing it, Vanilla Oil which Encompasses astringent & anti-bacterial properties that help with acne without drying out the skin. It also contains Tejpatra Oil which helps in rehydrating the skin and reversing the moisture depletion process and Pudina which invigorates and cools the skin. All these ingredients ensure that the skin always remains radiant and illuminated and it looks and feels healthy and moisturized.
Now, how is this different from other face washes available in the market? Firstly, this particular face wash by Mother Sparsh is completely plant-based and natural, it contains the goodness of natural emollients which help in hydrating dry dull skin. Apart from this, Mother Sparsh Plant-Based face wash also contains components that help in cleansing away toxins without stripping away essential oils. Plus this is suitable for all skin types of face wash.
This Mother Sparsh Ultra Rich Face wash retails for Rs 349 for 100 ml of the products and can be bought from Mother Sparsh’s official website as well as from Amazon.
3. Mamaearth Ubtan Face Wash With Turmeric & Saffron
Mamaearth Ubtan face wash is another face wash that I highly recommend. This particular one is different from the other 2 that I have mentioned so far. Mamaearth Ubtan Face Wash is a Tan removing face wash which on regular use helps to remove Facial Tan and gives a brighter-looking skin. This is not a skin-lightening product but the product contains Turmeric & Saffron both of which on regular use helps to remove the tan that gets accumulated on the skin due to exposure to the sun’s radiations.
The retail price of Ubtan Face Wash from Mamaearth is Rs 249 for 100 ml of the product. Now, this product does work well on its own but if you want to see the results in a week then I would recommend using the face wash along with the scrub. The combination of Ubtan Face wash and Ubtan face scrub from Mamaearth gives an instantly fresh and brighter-looking skin. Another key ingredient of Mamaearth Ubtan Face Wash is Walnut beads which gently exfoliate dead cells to reveal the natural glow on the face.
4. Clean & Clear Foaming Face Wash
Clean & Clear Foaming Face Wash is amongst the first face washes that I used when I started using a face wash and I still like using it. This is a simple face wash that is specially designed for oily skin. It contains ingredients that help to remove dirt and excess oil from the face. This face wash is designed to remove excess oil from the skin which helps prevent pimple and hence give you a clean and clear skin (as the name says). This is a foaming face wash which after cleaning gives satisfaction and feel of a cleaned face.
I won’t say that this is a face wash for everyone, but this is an excellent option if you are a teenager and are looking for something to help clear the skin. The face wash comes in 3 size options, the smallest one being 50 ml which retails for Rs 70/-.
5. MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash
MCaffeine is a relatively new brand and I started using this just a year ago. I wasn’t initially interested in Mcaffeine’s face wash but after trying their face scrub I fell in love with the formula and the coffee smell. Now, talking about MCaffeine’s face wash, as this is a Raw Coffee Face Wash it smells just like coffee. So if you are someone who doesn’t like the smell of coffee this can be a little overwhelming for you but if you love coffee like me, then you will love the fragrance.
But, this is not the only good thing about this face wash. MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash is a deep cleansing formula that is enriched with Pure Arabica Coffee and exotic White Waterlily. It helps in removing excess oil and dirt from the face and helps get rid of dullness from the face. MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Face Wash is SLS and Paraben free and can be used by both Men & Women. Coffee not only smells amazing but also deep cleanses and increases collagen production for youthful skin. The caffeine present in coffee helps to get an even skin tone and reduces puffiness.
The retail price of this face wash is Rs 349 for 100 ml of the product and it can be bought easily from Nykaa, Amazon or from Mcaffeine’s official website.
