Product Description & Swatch:

Za Perfect Solution Solution Cleansing Foam


1)They are cream based cleanser.

2)They lather well,cleanse well and does not dry the skin out.


4)They are suitable for Normal-Dry skin types.

5)Za True White cleanser contains Vitamin C granules though the composition is not very high.

6)Za Perfect Solution Cleansing Foam contains very small composition of citrus extracts which is an anti-oxidant.

7)Pleasant fragrance.


1)Lauric acid,Stearic acid,Myristic acid are present in the both the cleansers which are highly comedogenic.Hence it is not suitable for oily-acne prone skin.

2)It broke me out.I started noticing breakouts the next day though it claims to be "non-clogging to pores".

3)Nothing exceptional about the formula.


5)Easy availability is an issue.

6)I saw no whitening effect.

7)The Perfection Solution Cleansing Foam does not have any beneficial anti-ageing ingredients.It is pretty much same as True White Cleansing Foam.

Directions for use:

Apply required quantity of face wash on wet face.Massage and rinse off with water.


Za products are available in Shoppers Stop,Central,Health & Glow and New U stores.

Final Verdict:

When a high end brand like Shisiedo launched affordable skin care range,the whole world was buzzing about it.Its like automatically people expect the products to be good.But unfortunately these products do not live up to its claims!Both cleansers are highly comedogenic and not suitable for acne prone skin.On the other end Normal-Dry skin types might like it.I had a similar experience with Neutrogena Deep Cleansing Foam.If you look at it even the formula is same minus the Vitamin C granules which costs around Rs.110.The ingredient list of Za cleansers are not even impressive,there are no additional benefits.Even low budget cleansers like AHA Glow,Everyuth Tulsi Turmeric face wash helps acne,blemishes along with anti-ageing benefits at a fraction of a cost.If you are willing to buy spend so much money then I would recommend Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying gel or Vichy Normaderm Triactiv or Sebamed.

Honestly I am not impressed.I don't think its worth the money.Will I recommend it or purchase it-No!I have seen better.Nothing exceptional about these cleansers!

My Rating:2/5
