I am suffering from acne and acne scaring since around 4 years, I got it treated by a dermatologist around 15 months ago and my acne has reduced about 85-90 %. I do get 1 or 2 during that time of the month, but I suppose its very normal. My problem is that these acne leave scars that are really difficult to cure. Even when I had severe acne issue, the scaring issue was worse, let me just tell you what causes my acne to leave scars, TOUCHING. Yeah that’s what happens with me, if I bother it, it leaves a mark that’s difficult to get rid of. Melawash helped me solve this problem to a large extent.

The dermatologist I got treatment from for acne prescribed me this face wash for regular use and I have been using it since then, and it always works for me.


145 INR for 60 ml.

Claims Of The Product.

Directions for use.

My Experience With The Product

On the top of the product it say ‘ Key Ingredient- 6% Glycolic Acid, and glycolic acid cures hyper pigmentation. Being the 6% composition, it makes the face wash very strong and effective. As it says in the claims, it works on hyper pigmentation by shedding dead skin cells, and scars consists of clogged dead skin cells, by shedding those it fastens the production of new healthy skin cells thus curing the pigmentation. The face wash does not have any strong fragrance, but does have a light chemical like smell. The only problem with this face wash is that it is extremely drying and thus moisturizing immediately after the face wash is a must. I won’t recommend using this in the winters, yes it is that drying. Also, although it says use twice a day I use it once in the morning. If I have some serious scaring I do use it twice a day, but it is usually only in the area where the scars are.I have oily skin and for me it works exactly how it claims to, but I would not recommend it for dry skin.
