Review: Cosmedic Alpha-Q Brightening Face Wash

My only skin concern is uneven skin tone. I was always attracted to fairness creams not because i wanted to become *FAIR* but to just get an even skin tone and nothing worked so far. I was so glad when i received the samples of Cosmedic products from their pigmentation range, i really had high hopes on them. Know more about the brand HERE

My Experience with Cosmedic Alpha-Q Brightening Face Wash:

The packaging is very convenient and sturdy, it comes with a pump dispenser. The quantity offered lasted me a month. ( I used it twice daily). All the ingredient list and the other details of the product are listed on the packaging. The consistency of the face wash is creamy. The product does not lather but cleanses the skin pretty well. I usually require 2 pumps for my entire face and neck. Post-cleansing, i did not find my skin squeaky clean but it cleanses the skin. One thing that bothered me is that the face wash is slightly drying(nothing major though) on my skin but a moisturizer did help me out. I was skeptical about using it and asked the Cosmedic Team regarding the dryness the face wash is causing and they replied saying: "The face wash is actually helping the skin renew by exfoliating dead cells, so the skin doestend to feel a little dry intitially as the older duller skin exfoliates off".

So i was assured and continued using this along with their Lumi Day Brightening Day Lotion(which i will reviewing soon) and i started to notice that my skin is looking better and more even. I am sure its the Lotion thats working fast on my skin. I have tried using the face wash alone for a few days and it did not do any major brightening or anything. So i recommend using this face wash along with the Lumi Day Brightening Day Lotion.

Also Cosmedic claims that their products are Cruelty free and vegan, which is really nice. And they are also free of Hydroquinone, Steroids and other harmful bleaching agents which is a great relief. Also the availability of their products might be an issue but the website is very user friendly and you can order the products from their website very easily.

They have various products addressing to different skin issues, so do check their website Cosmedic and i recommend trying out their products 


Rating: 3.5/5

All in all a decent face wash i would say, i would recommend using this only if you have any pigmentation issues or un-even skin tone.
