Okay, Its a men’s face wash and I am reviewing it as I used it, it’s strange, I get it. Don’t judge me please, my brother got it for himself and it caused him to break-out, which is totally not cool. It was lying in my bathroom for I long time until I thought of giving it a try. The first time I used it I quite liked it and thus continued with it. So here it is, my experience with a men’s face wash.

My Experience With The Product.

To be honest, trying this product was just an experiment, and it worked quite well. The main thing that attracted me to try it was the fact that it stated it’s a cooling face wash, which felt good as it was the month of May that I tried it in, and trust me it was very hot in mumbai this summer. So, when I first used it, while using I felt a little tingling sensation that happens when you use products with menthol. Honestly, I enjoyed it and it was fun to massage it on my face. After rinsing, I felf my skin cool to touch, which was a plus again. It did not cause me any problem as such, and was rather very refreshing and fun to use. It made my brother break-out, and while using I too felt it is quite strong, so I would not recommend it to a person with sensitive skin or even dry skin. For normal skin this works pretty well, as it’s cooling it has also helped me with shrinking small pimples, and also soothing the irritation. Although it worked pretty well for me, I know it is not that versatile, so if you have normal to oily skin, I would suggest to give it a try, it actually refreshes the skin and cleans it very well.
