Glogeous Advanced Face wash Gel Review


Glogeous Advanced Face wash Gel Review


1)It is non-comedogenic cleanser in gel form which lathers and cleanses well.

2)It is 1% Glycolic acid cleanser which is known to exfoliate skin,increase cell turnover,unclog pores and treat acne/acne scars.

3)It also contains Aloe vera which soothes and hydrates the skin.

4)It also contains Vitamin E which is anti-oxidant.

5)It contains Evodia & Propanediol fruit extracts which has anti-inflammatory properties.It repairs skin damage due to sun,pollution,ageing etc.

6)It contains Fresh cells of Pumpkin cells which has anti-oxidant properties and is rich magnesium &zinc which is dries up pimples faster.They also lighten blemishes and hyper-pigmentation.

7)It is suitable for oily-acne prone skin.

8)It comes with a hygienic pump packaging and detailed instruction manual.


10)Another important point is despite using twice a day with Epiduo,it does not cause any dryness or flakiness unlike AHA Glow.


1)It is very very expensive for 100 grams.

Directions for use:

Damp the face with water.Dispense required quantity of face wash onto the palms.Massage in upward circular motion for 20-30 seconds.Rinse off with clear water and pat the face dry.

Use once or twice a day depending on your skin type.

Final Verdict:

When I first saw the formula I thought it is a dupe of Glomed.Since most of them had trouble procuring Glomed,I thought this option would be more feasible.But unlike Glomed(5% Glycolic acid),Glogeous is 1% Glycolic acid which is same concentration of AHA Glow.

The difference between AHA Glow and Glogeous is more advanced formula with beneficial ingredients like anti-oxidants,anti-inflammatory,Vitamin E milli capsules,Fruit extracts,Pumpkin cells all of which have active enzymes which treat acne,scars,hypigmentation,skin damage.SLS is also potential irritant in some cases which is present in AHA Glow but fortunately it is absent in Glogeous.

The new formula is definitely good better than AHA Glow.Glogeous does not cause much dryness because of the all hydrating ingredients.The cost is a huge problem,it is priced really high.I would have preferred in the Rs.200 or so range.Otherwise Glogeous is excellent face wash for acne prone folks.I think I might repurchase it once this gets over.If you loved AHA Glow then for sure Glogeous will be your new favourite!

My Rating:5/5


  • For those who do not know about Glycolic acid, it is a sugar cane derivative.For more info read here.
  • Since it contains Glycolic acid,it is advisable to start using it once a day for few days and gradually make it twice a day.
  • It can cause dryness/peeling/flakiness.It is normal skin reaction to Glycolic acid so do not panic.Just follow up with a moisturiser.
  • Add a sunscreen as well since glycolic acid exfoliates skin,it is necessary to preserve the results.
  • It is not advisable to use with harsh acne treatments like Retinoids,Benzoyl Peroxide, Isotretinoin etc as it can cause more dryness and irritation.
  • This product can be used by all skin types just not oily/acne prone skin to maintain good skin as glycolic acid encourages shedding of dead skin cells,unblocks pores,lightens marks,reduces wrinkles,improves overall skin texture.
