Face washes are staple products for everyone’s skin care regimen; whatever maybe the age, gender or skin type of that individual. Sadly, this everyday essential is often a house of several strong and harmful chemicals. These chemicals are there in the composition of the facial washes as cleansing agents, preservatives etc. Most of the mild formula facial washes were quite expensive until the budget brands started with their own version of lesser chemical products. Recently VLCC has launched an entire range of paraben free face cleansers under the name of VLCC Ayurveda. The face washes of this range are quite cost effective than VLCC’s regular face washes. Naturally, I got lured and got this Skin Brightening Haldi & Chandan Face Wash. Let’s read on to find how it worked on my oily-combination skin.

My Experience with VLCC Ayurveda Skin Brightening Haldi & Chandan Face Wash

Packaging- This face wash comes in a half opaque-half see-through plastic squeeze tube with clear flip-top cap. The label graphics and the outlooks of this tube are quite different from regular VLCC face washes and scrubs. The front side of the tube contains some artistic designs along with the picture of the main ingredients Turmeric and Sandalwood. The other side mentions complete ingredient details and claims. The packaging is sturdy, leak-proof and travel-safe.


Colour & Texture- This turmeric based facial cleanser is basically a turmeric yellow color transparent gel. Its consistency is on the runny side. Though it is a soap-free face wash, it creates medium lather at the time of application. It is quite easy to wash this one off from the face. There is no annoying creamy residue left on the face afterward.

Fragrance- This one smells like turmeric with a faint hint of floral fragrance. The fragrance is very mild and short staying. It would not be a cause of headaches or any other irritations.

Experience- If you have read any of my skincare reviews then you may know I have oily to combination skin with the tendency of getting frequent acne breakouts. I always opt for gel-based face washes rather than foaming ones. Considering these points, this particular face wash was a nice choice because it is non-foaming and has gel base. It provides me with enough froth to cleanse the skin without ripping off all the moisture from my face. It did not cause any new pimples or aggravated the existing ones. It had deep cleansing effects to my skin. I could see a healthy glow on my face. This face wash is targeted to the UV ray damaged skin. Overall it’s a good product to have in your facial care collection.

Overall Performance of VLCC Ayurveda Skin Brightening Haldi & Chandan Face Wash


  1. Turmeric and Sandalwood based mild face cleanser
  2. Non-drying soap-free formula
  3. Paraben-free
  4. Gets rid of excess oil and impurities completely
  5. Does not cause or aggravate acne
  6. Easily available and affordable


No cons for me!

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

I will recommend VLCC Ayurveda Skin Brightening Haldi & Chandan Face Wash to everyone irrespective of gender and skin type who is searching for an ayurvedic facial wash without paraben. I would like to repurchase it since it is quite mild on my skin yet it cleanses really well.

Does the glow or the brightening effect stay for long or only as long as you use the facewash

The glow it gives is something you get from thoroughly cleansed skin. Naturally, the glow stays as long as the skin is clean and hydrated. It is not like salon facial effects 🙂
