GOOD VIBES ACTIVATED CHARCOAL DEEP CLEANSING FACE WASH REVIEW

Hi Ladies,
Today my review is on Good Vibes Activated Charcoal Deep Cleansing Face Wash.
If you have observed, my first post on this blog was on a face wash from Lotus. If you haven’t – then you can check out here – Lotus Face wash Review. Now the reason I am talking about my first blog post here is that if you read that you will know my hunt for a good face wash was and is on from ages and ages.
In the process of this hunt – I had done so much of research that I ended up coming to a conclusion that all the face washes whether herbal or not has tons and tons of chemicals in it. So, for almost a year or so I had stopped using any face wash. I had formulated a homemade powder to cleanse my skin and I will be posting that very soon on the blog. But somehow during morning rush hours I felt that I need something which I can swiftly apply on my face, massage, splash water and Tadaaa my face is clean. Exactly at that time I started searching for a lesser chemical face wash and stumbled upon good vibes brand. Read on the review to know how it has fared.

 

Company Claims: Absorbs Impurities, Clear Blackheads and Leaves radiant glow.


Color: Pitch Black.
Consistency: Very runny.

Price: Rs. 175/- INR for 120 ml bottle.
Shelf Life: 2 years.
Availability: These are easily available in online stores. I purchased it from Purplle.com.
My Thoughts: Nowadays my skin is somewhere between normal to dry and when I saw this face wash it had mentioned that it suits dry and all skin type and helps in clearing dark spots and dullness so I purchased it.
This is my first product which has Activated Charcoal and I will have to tell you all that it smells pathetic. I am not sure if all the products which has activated charcoal as the main ingredient smells so horribly or only this. But smell was really a put off for me.
I have used up the complete bottle and as the company claims it suits all skin types including dry skin and there is a kind of glow or brightness on the face which I actually loved. It doesn’t leave my skin dry or tight after wash and it did not break me out as well.
When it comes clearing dark spots and dullness – I am not really sure of this. Firstly, I have very few dark spots and that was not cleared by this face wash and secondly, the dullness part – I do not know whether to expect a face wash to remove our dullness or a nourished, well rested body. Anyway I did not see any major changes as such.
How I Use: I wet my face, take a pump of the product in my palm and apply and massage on my face and wash off with room temperature water.
Pros:
  • Leaves a kind of glow on the skin.
  • Suits almost all the skin types.
  • Parabens free.
  • Easily available.
  • Affordable.
Cons:
  • Smell is a put off.
  • It has SLES which is a lather or foaming agent and I feel it is bit harsh to the skin.
Will I repurchase again: No – mainly because of the chemicals present in it and also the smell. May be I will try other variants from Good Vibes.
