Many people still like a product which gives skin lightening effects, I however do not support any such notion. Lightening or brightening of acne marks and acne scars is something I can understand. Today I am going to post a review of one such product which claims to lighten acne marks and scars.

Let's see the Ethiglo Face Wash Review and how it is backed by the ingredients which help in lightening the acne marks.

Skincare Science has advanced over a period of time with the innovation of chemical exfoliation via AHA, BHA and other acids. With the help of these exfoliating acids, it is not very difficult to reduce or fade acne marks or scars within a certain period. Let us see which AHA, BHA ingredients Ethiglo face wash has.

My experience with Ethilgo Face Wash

I loved the super white tube packaging with a silver wording of the name. The packaging size is small and quite travel friendly to fit a handbag.

Now coming to the product consistency and colour, the consistency is frothy like a shaving cream and colour is similar with a shiny sheen of the face wash. The face wash is exactly like a shaving cream in appearance as well as consistency (excuse me for the comparison). The consistency is neither runny nor thick. The face wash contains very tiny pink granules. The density of the granules is moderate.

Now the efficiency part, the face wash foams quite well and the quantity required is very less. The foam is frothy (like a shaving cream) and gets washed off easily.  The face wash contains Liquorice and the effects are quite evident in just one use. The face wash makes the skin super clean without drying it. It gives a subtle glow and freshness to the skin which lasts for around 2-3 hours. The face wash does its job quite well and helps in curing the dark spots left by acne.

I would also like to mention that it takes time to show effects on darker shades of acne scars. However I am yet to see any effects on the pigmentation I have below my lower lip. However I don't expect overnight effects especially by a face wash which we put on skin for just less than one minute.

But according to the amount of time we put the face wash on the skin, it shows great effects with respect to that. I would prefer this face wash as a super cleansing agent with added benefit of  fading the scars over a period of time. As a thumb rule to get maximum benefits from any face wash one should use or keep on face for 60 seconds. This will definitely be beneficial in case of Ethiglo Face Wash as it contains many AHAs means exfoliating agents.
