My Thoughts on Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash

This is my review of Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash, its active ingredients are Centella Asiatica, Niacinamide and also Glycerin. However, looking at the INCI list overall, it doesn't look that great with Alcohol and Fragrance. 

It comes in a fully covered plastic tube with a flip cap. The design is simple and does not come with outer box packaging.

It's a sheer lightly coloured green cream cleanser that does not create foam but does feel rather soapy upon application.

It has a very strong scent that might not be pleasant for all

Honestly, I have not tried this cleanser yet. I'm posting this post as a requirement as it has been sent to me for PR purposes and also for future reference. This cleanser is super affordable as easily found in major drugstores. However, I don't feel like I'll be using this cleanser anytime soon, so this post would probably not be updated.

Overall Thoughts
Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash may be a cleanser you can try out if you're looking for an affordable cleanser that is easily found. Since it's a drug-store product, you do not have to worry about illegal chemicals as it should be safe. Mentholatum is however a very trusted brand from Japan.
