In Detail Lakme 9to5 Matte Moist Clay Facewash Review and My Experience

Lakme Moist Matte Face wash comes in two different sizes. A 50 gram tube, and a 100 gram tube. I got 100 gram as the smaller wasn’t available at that moment on Nykaa. The packaging is simple and subtle. It has a light green and off white color ombre tube where all the details regarding the face wash is given on front and back of the tube. It has a green coloured cap which is secured with a flip open lid. The face wash packaging is travel friendly and can be carried along easily without any hassle.

The face wash is pale green color and has a faint fruity smell to it which is not bothering at all and vanishes away in seconds after washing.

Though it says that it is a clay face wash but, texture of the face wash looks creamy and smooth to me. It is smooth and the consistency is thick and silky. It glides on my skin well. The face wash does not lather much which didn’t impressed me much as I have oily skin and I like to use a face wash which forms rich lather and in that way I feel my skin is thoroughly cleansed.

How I Use it and Effects

I wet my face with a normal tap water take a coin size amount of this face wash and massage it all over my face and neck, and then wash it with water thoroughly. The face wash to my surprise doesn’t create lot of foam but made my skin clean and removed all the oil and greasiness from my face and my face was glowing. Due to the presence of clay in it, it removed all the oil and dirt from my face. It didn’t extremely dry out my skin and my skin was feeling and little hydrated at the same time.

Moreover, it doesn’t make my skin feel extra dry or stretchy so, I believe all skin types can easily use this except people with extremely dry or flaky skin. Also it didn’t broke me out as mentioned earlier, many skincare products give’s me breakout but this did not and I like using it as you can see in photos how much I have used it and just little is left. Skin remains fresh and glowy for quite some time though the effect is not very long lasting.
