The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash

~ Associate Editor : Priyanka Gupta


I have a really sensitive skin that changes according to the weather. So every season I find myself looking for a new face wash or cream. Handling the skin in Delhi is still okay because with time I have realized what works but if I am traveling to Mumbai, Kolkata or Chennai then god save me. My skin starts looking dark and oily and I don’t even feel like looking at the mirror. During such a trip to Kolkata, I came across Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash on my cousin’s bathroom counter. My skin had been looking dull and lifeless and I had to step out for dinner. I simply used the foaming face wash to clean my face and voila! My skin suddenly started looking clearer and brighter!



Since then, I have always carried The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash with me to every trip.  It has accompanied me to USA, Bangalore, and Chennai and it never disappoints me. The face wash is gentle on my combination skin and cleans it well. Everyone around me can see the difference. But I don’t use it regularly, just when I am travelling or on special occasions. A full size bottle can last you months.

Price : INR 695 for 125 ml

Product Details (by company) : A Skin-comforting foam proven to cleanse without irritating. It cleans away the dirt and makeup and makes your skin soft, clean and not tight. Dermatologist approved, clinically proven suitable for sensitive skin.

My Thoughts ?

I have to keep changing my face washes and creams regularly as once my skin gets used to it then it stops working. But I have been using this face wash since 6 months now and always come back to using it. Unlike other face wash, this foaming wash doesn’t dry out my skin. Normally, I would not have bought it off the shelf as I feel it is a little over price. But once I tried it at my cousin’s place I knew I had to buy this.


Whenever I feel that my skin is looking dull and dark, I use it and I can see the difference instantly. This aloe vera face wash comes with a pump dispenser and it gives you just the right amount at a time so you don’t have to worry about product wastage. The packaging is travel friendly and I have never had to worry about leakage or about cleaning the product residue around the cap.

How to use? Rinse your face with water. Use the pump dispenser to pump out the foam wash and apply it to your face. Massage your face with it for about a minute and rinse it off.


Texture : This face wash has a foam texture that is easy to apply.

Formula : Made with aloe which is known to have a soothing effect on skin and cleans it well. Such face wash is great for people with sensitive skin and for people who travel a lot.


Final Verdict: The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash is one of the best face washes I have used and I would continue using it for a long time. With this I don’t have to worry about searching for new face washes every time the weather changes or when I travel. I would recommend it to everyone who travels a lot or has sensitive skin.
