I’d used Saslic face wash (the yellow one containing 1% Salicylic acid) a couple of years ago and really liked the results. It made my skin glow but I did not repurchase only because I have the habit of trying out new stuff and rarely ever buy the same product twice . Since I’m currently suffering from a bout of awful acne that decided (as usual) to rear its ugly head exactly when I have functions to attend , I gave Saslic DS face wash a try. The difference is that Salic DS contains a higher concentration on Salicyclic acid…2% to be precise.

Packaging: It comes packaged in a purple carton and the bottle in turn is completely sealed in clear plastic. The face wash comes in a transparent, plastic, lightweight bottle with a purple-tinted label. This makes it really easy to determine how much product is left in the bottle. It has a pump dispenser with a transparent cap that fits snugly. Although the cap fits well, I’m not too sure if it would stay in place when dumped randomly in a bag. I have taken it with me while travelling but I do make sure I keep the bottle upright and in a compartment where it won’t budge.
My experience with Saslic DS Foaming face wash:
If you haven’t used foaming face washes before, you’ll find the experience quite a novelty. In the bottle you see clear, runny liquid and the consistency matches that of plain water. When you press the pump, you get a handful of bubbly foam. You have to massage the foam on your face but it will not lather any further. You will not feel the regular slippery feel of a soapy face wash; instead it simply feels like you’re massaging a mixture of air and slimy water on your face. Umm…maybe I shouldn’t have used the word slimy . Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice feeling actually.
One pump is more than enough for the entire face since using two pumps will ensure that you finish up the bottle in less than a month! Yup, this is not one of those long-lasting face washes. The bottle will be half empty (or half full if you’re an optimist ) before you know it, and that’s sad considering the price is double…no wait…triple that of a regular drugstore cleanser.

Final thoughts on Saslic DS Foaming face wash:
I highly recommend this face wash to those with very oily, acne-prone skin. I wish it lasted longer especially considering the price. Since this is medicated, it is advisable to first consult your physician before use. I also make sure I don’t use this more than twice a day. If I feel the need to wash my face more than twice, I use a different, milder cleanser since I don’t want to risk irritating my skin.
