TOP 5 Face Cleansers for Oily Acne Prone Skin Under 500 INR


Selecting a face cleanser that makes your skin clean without stripping natural oils is a must in every skincare routine.

Having a good cleanser according to your skin type is extremely important as a good face wash can change your entire skincare game.

A perfectly cleansed skin helps in better penetration of skincare products and it reduces clogging of pores which can result in blackheads, whiteheads or inflammatory acne.

I always focus on double cleansing during the night time as it perfectly melts sunscreen and makeup residue and makes the skin squeaky clean. I’ll make a post on cleansing balms and oils in another blog post.

Today I will be sharing some of my tried and tested face cleansers for oily acne prone skin.


Cetaphil OS

Cetaphil is a brand that is trusted by many dermatologists across the world. This particular cleanser is targeted towards oily skin. It has a creamy texture and doesn’t foam. The cleanser feels like rubbing a lotion on your skin but it leaves the skin clean and fresh without making it dry or stretchy.

Price – 475 INR for 125 ml


Saslic DS foaming face wash by Cipla

If you live in India, Cipla is a name that you must have heard. It is a famous pharmaceutical company which manufactures medicines and different personal care products. This Saslic DS face wash contains 2% salicylic acid.

Salicylic acid is a potent BHA or beta hydroxy acid which has keratolytic properties. It dissolves dead skin cell layers, removes excess oil and clear out the pores. This is a foaming face wash and it falls under the category of exfoliating face wash. It can be used 2-3 times a week at night for a clear complexion. Salicylic acid tends to dry out the skin so following with a good moisturiser is a must.

This is another exfoliating face wash by the pharmaceutical company Ethicare Remedies. The face wash has a gel like consistency and it contains purple beads in it which needs to be burst first before application on the skin. It contains various ingredients such as salicylic acid, aloevera, tea tree oil, D-panthenol that are really helpful for acne prone skin.

Re’equil is an Indian brand that has come up with some really good skincare and haircare products. They have also started including some extremely good fragrance free products in their range, their atorep barrier cream and body lotion are my favourite.

Their oil control face wash foams really well and helps in cleaning the skin effectively without making the skin dry or stretchy. It can be used daily without any difficulties. It is sulphate free and soap free.

Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant Face Wash
