Patanjali Soundarya Facewash - Review

From last 2 years i'm using Neutrogena Gentle Facewash which suits my combination skin perfectly. But the bottle is not travel friendly . Also i got bored of using the same face wash. I tried Lakme Strawberry variant face wash while travelling,which made my skin dry.  Most of the Patanjali products haven't failed me. So during my last visit to Patanjali, i decided to give Patanjali Soundarya facewash a try.Read along to know how it turned out.

Product Description :
Soundarya Facewash made from the natural extract of Orange Peel,Neem,Tulsi and Aloevera which cleanse gently,nourish and revitalize the complexion to make skin look fresh,smooth and beautiful.
Suitable for all types of skin.

Ingredients :
Composition Each 10 gm contains :
Orange peel :5mg
Neem :0.5 mg
Tulsi :0.5 mg
Aloevera : 0.5 mg
Base materials : Aqua,Gelbase,Glycerin,Honey,Perfume,Sodium chloride,Diazolydinyl Urea,Iodo Propyl Butyl Carbamate,Vitamin E Acetate PEG-14M,permitted color - Q.S.
Directions to use : Apply on wet face. Massage gently for 1 minute with water and wash with water.
Shelf life : Best before 18 months from the date of manufacturing date.
Price: For 60 ml  INR 60.
My experience
Packaging : It comes in  tube form with very sturdy flip cap which makes it travel friendly.Nothing fancy about the package.

Texture is creamy as you can see.Require only peas size amount as it foams well. (See the quantity i use for whole face)

It cleanses well and removed dirt and oil completely from face.But never caused drying and infact kept face smooth and supple. But not well enough for one to skip moisturiser . I doubt any face wash will give that moisturisation.

As you have noticed there is no SLS or Paraben in this product. But on little googling i found out Diazolydinyl Urea is almost harmful as SLS.But i guess if you want thorough cleaning there should be some ingredient like this.

Fragrance : It have a very mild orange fragrance which is not not going to hurt even sensitive noses.

What i like?
a) Creamy texture
b) Doesn't dry out skin
c) Contains some wonderful ingredients.
d) Very little quantity required for each use.
e) Cleanse thoroughly
f) Mild smell.
g) Travel friendly.
h) Budget buy.

What i don't like?
a) Presence of  Diazolydinyl Urea? Well can't complain about it as a foaming and preservative agent should be present in these products.
