Availability:

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

Disclaimer:

  • 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.
