Take required quantity of face wash,massage on face  and rinse with water.


Melawash and Curatio products are easily available in all medical stores.

It is also available online on ClickOnCare.com,to buy click HERE.

Final Verdict:

I bought this face wash when I was not on any acne treatments few months back and when Glomed(5% Glycolic acid)was not easily available.It contains 6% Glycolic acid.It is a good face wash for Melasma/Hyper-pigmentation skin problems/Acne blemishes.

Two very important usage instructions:
1) Please do not use with strong acne treatments.
2) It is advisable to use the face wash once a day since it is a very strong face wash otherwise it could cause more dryness.

One thing I really disliked is the fragrance,its a really turn-off:(!Honestly I am bit disappointed here since most Curatio products have pleasant fragrance and of good quality.

If I had to choose between Glomed and Melawash,I would go for Glomed because it has liquorce extracts,aloe vera and pro-vitamin B along with 5%Glycolic acid and smells good too:x!

My Rating:3.75/5

  • Do not use Melawash with strong acne treatments like Isotretinoin,Benzoyl Peroxide,Retinoids.
  • Since the concentration of glycolic acid  is high,start using once a day and gradually make twice a day after few days.
  • It is suitable to use as Melawash as stand alone product i.e when you are not using any strong product/treatment.
  • You might see dryness,just add a moisturiser.
  • Winters you can reduce the usage if it makes your skin dry.
