Review of Medimix (Ayurvedic) Face wash

Ayurvedic skincare and the best over the counter acne treatment

It’s safe to say that everyone is looking for the holy grail– the best acne face wash. The one, cheap treatment that eradicates acne in totality, erases all signs of post acne scars, leaving the skin looking like a super model and costs under a few bucks. Oh, and lasts for months with zero side-effects. Maybe I left off a few but that’s the gist. Unfortunately, this isn’t that acne face wash, but I try not to make perfect the enemy of pretty damn good. And this product is pretty damn good.

Summary–The best acne face wash?

I’ve spent my whole life looking for a unicorn that poops gold and requires no upkeep, only reward. Still searching. Much the same way with Medimix– while not the holy grail of acne treatments, it is a worthwhile product that has multiple uses. Plus, a little goes a long ways.

I stumbled upon this product when I attended a health fair a few weeks ago and have been thoroughly impressed with the quality of the product as well as the other property lines (soaps, cosmetics).

You can see from the ingredient list the impressive thought that went into formulation. I’m not going to get into the specific aspects of Ayurveda medicine as I don’t feel qualified. After doing some research into the herbs contained in the product I’m intrigued to look into it further.

Conclusion

Sometimes with new products there is a trial time, where the body needs to adapt or adjust to the substance. This may manifest itself as the condition growing in intensity and severity due to several reasons. I won’t say this happened to me or that I found it in the reviews of others, only that it’s something to be mindful of and take into consideration when trying any new product.

Once more, having used the product and being satisfied with its efficacy (diminished size of pores and minor acne scars), quality of ingredients due to reputation of company, I recommend the product with the caveat of consulting a medical doctor for any questions and starting slow the first few day in order to make sure no allergic reactions or unknown side-effects occur.

Finally, I want to state that I didn’t use it for acne, as I don’t have any at the moment, so I can’t vouch for that aspect of the product. Though the product does have favorable reviews online for its acne treatment abilities. It did have a positive impact on my dermatitis and acted like a gentle moisturizer that lessened the appearance of minor scars while using the product.

I would really love for readers to try it out and offer feedback, either in comments or in a message to me.

With that said, this really is a great product and I look forward to your experiences.
