Auravedic Honey Almond Pulpy Face Wash

Hello Friends!
Today I am going to review Auravedic Honey Almond Pulpy Face wash.So sweeties go through my review to know more about this unique facial cleanser.

My Take On This Product:
Auravedic Honey and Almond Cleanser comes in a white tub with a screw cap and a plastic separator that prevents the cleanser from spilling or spreading to the cap. Once you open the separator , you can see the cleanser is brown colored and has fruit jam kind of consistency. Initially you get a strong burst of fruity fragrance changing to strong coconut oil kind fragrance. The cleanser is very thick, dense and concentrated. One needs just a pea nut sized quantity for cleansing face. It contains concentrated fruit acids so one should not bring it near eyes. Its very strong and stings a lot if enters eyes by chance. I found this cleanser very unique, I have never seen anything like this before. Whenever I use it and apply on my face, it forms a waxy film which when comes in contact with water results in soft lather. 

This product is free of SLS and any kind of harmful preservative. Without a foaming base, I thought it wont be able to cleanse properly, but I was absolutely wrong. It not only cleanses my face properly, but leaves it squeaky clean and yet does not strip my skin of moisture even results in smooth and baby soft skin. I have observed after using this product there is visible reduction in appearance of pores remarkably. I really like everything about this cleanser except the following two things:

1-With regular use, product comes out while placing the separator cap back and accumulates near the mouth of jar thus making it messy and unhygienic.

2-I am a person who is always in a hurry and thus do not prefer to use separate cleansers for face and eyes. 

Pros Of The Product:
-Its free of SLS and harmful preservatives.
-This cleanser is rich in fruit acids, Almond and Honey extracts.
-Produces mild lather yet leaves skin squeaky clean.
-Removes facial makeup too.
-Makes my skin smooth and baby soft.
-Significantly reduces the appearance of pores.
-Removes temporary tans too leaving brighter complexion.
-Packaging is quite sturdy.
-Considering the amount required for each wash and the quality of the product, price is reasonable.
-Available now at several shopping websites.
-Never broke me out or made my skin dry.
-It maintains the optimum oil- moisture balance of the skin.

Cons Of The Product:
-It stings a lot if it enters your eyes by chance.
-With regular use, the tub becomes messy and unhygienic.
-Not easily available at departmental stores.
-Quantity should have been more.
-It feels cumbersome to use a separate cleanser for eyes.
-May not suit sensitive skin.

Packaging: 3.25 out of 5
Effectiveness: 4.25 out of 5
Price: 3.75 out of 5
Availability: 3.5 out of 5

Will I repurchase it? I want to try their another variant- Rose Saffron Pulpy face wash.

My Overall Recommendation: Auravedic Honey Almond Face wash is a very mild cleanser free from SLS and other harmful preservatives. It leaves my skin smooth, soft and removes mild tan. This cleanser contains concentrated fruit acids and therefore should not be used near eyes. If you do not mind tub packaging and the price factor then you should definitely go for this.Quality wise, its one of the best cleansers I have ever used.
