Do you envy people who have naturally flawless and acne-free skin? You are not alone buddy! Getting rid of acne is hard for sure. But if you use proper skincare products that are especially meant for acne, then you definitely can eliminate them to an extent!
Today I am here with an acne clearing face wash by this Japanese pharmaceutical brand, Mentholatum Acnes. I shared one more Acnes face wash review (Acnes Fairness Wash) on the blog which has the same, acne clearing concept as this Acnes Creamy Wash, just the ingredients are different.

Acnes Creamy Wash – Acnes Face Wash Review
- Clarifies acne: The strong and effective ingredient IMP* helps remove 99.9**% of acne-causing germs, prevents future breakouts and helps clear skin, while also softening the skin.
- Controls oil: This oil-controlling mechanism, helps remove excessive oil and sebum to deliver shine-free skin.
- Purifies Skin: Exfoliates dead skin intensively by allowing water to combine with oil/dirt and washing them away, hence purifying pores to reveal clearer skin.

My Take on Acnes Creamy Wash
The Acnes Creamy Wash comes in a travel friendly tube packaging with a flip cap on top. It is a creamy and thick face wash which is free of parabens, SLS and other harsh chemicals. It claims to clear acne and control excess sebum on the skin. I put it to test for a few days before I finally decided to share its review here. The packaging mentions that you should use it twice a day to see effective results out of it. But since I rarely use face wash in the daytime, I have mostly used it once during evening / night time.
The smell of this Acnes face wash is kind of medicinal and I don’t really like it much, but thankfully, it doesn’t stay there for long! All this while when I was testing this face wash, I noticed that I wasn’t getting any acne or whiteheads which is very surprising for me. I usually have 2-3 acne all over my face and a few whiteheads near my nose. 95% of the times, I also have small bumps on my forehead very frequently. They are neither acne nor whiteheads, they are just a result of clogged pores caused by dead skin cells or residue of makeup/skincare products (that’s what my research says!).
This face wash, I am telling you, it has vanished all those tiny bumps from my forehead area! I am not getting acne anymore either. I just got one of them near my eyebrows a couple of days back, It would have been gone by now if I was using this face wash properly.
Currently, I am not using any “new” skincare product except this one. I even stopped using Acnes Sealing Jell just to find out if this face wash is actually working on its claims and I guess it is totally doing that. The acne marks which I had prior to using this face wash are also fading little by little. I am going to use it religiously until the whole tube is over – which might take a month or so since the quantity provided is great. If it continues to show its magic on my skin just like it is doing it at the moment – then it is directly going to be on my permanent-repurchase list!
What I liked about Acnes Creamy Wash
- Cleanses the skin deeply.
- Free of parabens and other harsh chemicals.
- Clears out acne and prevents breakouts as well.
- Keeps the skin oil-free for long.
What I didn’t like about Acnes Creamy Wash
- Can be a little harsh and drying for people with dry skin if it’s not followed by a proper moisturizer.
It does hit the nail on the head! Worth trying for people like me who have acne prone skin. If a freaking 95 rupees face wash can save us from the acne-attack, then why not give it a try? ? It won’t help you to prevent hormonal acne (of course), but it will surely help if you frequently get acne because of any other reasons like dirt/excess sebum/clogged pores etc.
