I had bought Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser from Health and Glow, exclusively for a blog review. While picking up the face wash, I didn’t realize it has SLES as the surfactant.
I didn’t want to waste the face wash just because of the ingredient and used it in my double cleansing routine as well as to remove my sunscreen. Read the Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser Review to know whether it is suitable for oily acne prone skin.
Brand Claims of Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser
External irritants like the sun, pollution and weather changes can cause the skin to lose its lustre. Stress, too, plays a pivotal role in accelerating skin concerns causing your sebaceous glands to go into an overdrive leading to excess oil production in the skin. This cleanser, enriched with orange zest extracts and micro pearls, gently exfoliates your skin and minimises the trigger for excess oil production. The result is skin that’s devoid of a feeling of stickiness and excess sebum in addition to being revitalised and refreshed.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance of Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser
The packaging is white, luxurious tube with a flip cap top. The cleanser has a very light hue of orange and contains tiny sized exfoliating beads which are supposed to gently exfoliate the skin. The face cleanser has a zesty fragrance which is a little strong. People who don’t like artificial fragance much might find it over powering, although it is non lingering. The cleanser has a runny consistency. As soon as you open the cap to dispense, the face wash just oozes out and it becomes difficult to control the amount being dispensed.
My experience with Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser
The face cleanser has SLES as the surfactant and lathers a lot. Keeping in mind the amount of lather it produces, very little cleanser is needed for each use. Also I usually don’t use any foaming face cleanser or wash twice a day, so this face wash didn’t dry out my skin at all. Although I would suggest you all to keep your usage of foaming cleanser once per day.
The cleanser removes all the dirt, grime and sweat from the skin and makes it clean and fresh. Skin feels fresh and bright with each use. It has very tiny sized exfoliating beads which are supposed to gently exfoliate the skin. However if you try to lather the face wash directly on the skin, the exfoliating beads might hurt the skin. As a thumb rule, always lather any foaming face wash on palms and then apply to the face in light, circular motions. The cleanser does gets washed off, easily.
The face wash has a fresh zesty fragrance, it is a little strong but feels good on some occasions especially in this summer. Coming back to the usage, I use this face wash as a standalone cleanser as well as in double cleansing or to remove my sunscreen. It nicely removes the residue of a cleansing balm without drying out my oily, acne prone skin. The cleanser also removed the Pond’s BB cream when I put it to test. I think it can break down light makeup also without drying the skin.
If you are into SLES or SLS based face cleanser then Dermafique Vitality Flash Facial Cleanser would be a good pick. When I picked up the face wash I didn’t realize it has SLES, so I put it to use in double cleansing as well as limited the use to once per day in my skincare routine.
