Two new face washes for oily/acne prone skin that have hit the market. Which one seems more appealing to you? Would you Save or Splurge?


  1. I like TBS tea tree wash...makes my face feel squeaky clean and soft...yet to try Pond vala ;)

  2. I use neutrogena and I love it. But I'm considering switching to some Indian brand like medicare or vlcc! any clue how that is?


    1. Hey Ayesha! I have not tried both the brands that you have mentioned. The face washes that have worked well for my oily/acne prone skin are Cetaphil, Clean and Clear Deep Action and Sebamed. I'm currently using my favorite, Clean and Clear Deep action face wash.

  3. I use the Neutrogena Deep Clean face wash for my oily skin which I find does a great job.
    When it comes to TBS and their Tea Tree Range, although it is expensive - from personal experience of using the oil & toner, the range honestly doesn't make much of a difference to the skin.

  4. i haven't tried the ponds one yet. their packaging is pulling me but i haven't been charmed off my shoes to get it yet. always prefer TBS that way. if only they had valid sales.
