Episoft Cleanser {Product Review}

This post is more of a recommendation than a review.

I don’t have a HG face wash so I do keep experimenting and if someone asks me to recommend some, I would say Episoft cleanser which I have used and have discontinued using coz of its cost and availability issues but it is really good and better than Cetaphil actually and I am speaking for this coz I have used both of them and have seen the difference. So, in case you are in search of a good face wash, you can try it out.
Regarding the cost, both cetaphil and Episoft cost the same.
The cleanser is really light weight and non-greasy and leaves the skin just as it is (not dry or oil but clean). I have compared their ingredient lists too and did find that the Episoft ingredient list was better and gentler. And, comparing the cleansers, Episoft is gentler. I have used some 2-3 bottles of this cleanser on and off where as I have used Cetaphil only once and never went back to it.
Regarding the availability, you can ask for it at Apollo pharmacy and they will definitely get it for you in case you do not get it at other drug stores. They might or might not have stocked it so that it a hitch in being regular with this cleanser.
One more thing I would add is that I had this cleanser prescribed by a dermatologist whom I didn’t much like and she had prescribed this one for my dry skin problem on my hands which had developed weird dry patches. When I used this cleanser over those patches, the condition normalized gradually in sometime so I can safely say that it is a damn good cleanser for people with such issues.

      hi. episoft is just a cleanser for sensitive skin. it is not supposed to get rid of dark patches or any other skin problem. it is just a mild cleanser which avoids reaction on the skin due to harmful face washes.

      for oily skin and dark patches, apply tomato juice every night after washing the face, let it dry for 5-10 min and wash off. follow with a moisturizer.

      hi Pranay. yes, it does not lather. it is medicated and supposed to be gentle but it is weird that you are facing reactions. guess it does not suit every skin!!
