Final Verdict:

This is a pretty close dupe to Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Triactiv Cleanser minus the Salicylic acid.Even the consistency is same.
  • As a scrub it is gently exfoliates.It is suitable for daily use.
  • As a cleanser,it does not lather much but cleanses well without making skin dry.
  • As a face pack, it dries up pretty quickly and skin feels fresh.
Apart from Kaolin,Magnolia extracts,Shea butter the ingredient list is not the most impressive one.May be a hint of salicylic acid would have been better then it would have really benefited oily-acne prone skin.Other than that no major con's , a decent product but not the best one out there.If I have to choose between Vichy Normaderm Triactiv and Nivea,I would opt for vichy!

My Rating:3.75/5
