We have seen many pharmaceutical brands of glycolic acid face washes like AHA Glow/S,Ducray Kernacyl,Glomed,Melawash which are so popular among oily-acne prone skin.Since it is the winters,I wanted a mild glycolic acid face wash,otherwise it will cause some dryness.The concentration of glycolic acid is not very high since it is mentioned at the end of the list so it is suitable for daily use and other skin types as well.So I picked up Glycolic acid face wash from Plum too.It is good face wash which keeps acne in check and lightens scars as well.I would recommend it for oily-acne prone skin.Green tea is another added advantage since it rich in anti-oxidants.I would suggest using glycolic acid face washes any day over scrubs as it provides gentle exfoliation,increases cell turn over,unclogs pores and treats acne/acne scars.I think I might repurchase it!
