Swiss Tempelle – Deep Purifying Face wash Review

With so much pollution around, our skin gets easily covered with grime and all we need is something that helps to make our skin clean & supple.

Today I am going to review Swiss Tempelle – Deep Purifying Face wash.This was a random purchase that I made when I suddenly remembered at the payment counter that I had to buy a face wash. You can find this in any of the outlets of the Future Group (BigBazar, EasyDay).I bought it from EasyDay.

So let’s get started,

Name: Swiss Tempelle – Deep Purifying Face wash

Price: Rs. 125 for 100ml

Here is the list of the ingredients mentioned on the face wash, in case you wish to know

  • The face wash has a nice herbal fragrance
  • The texture & consistency is similar to that of a liquid transparent gel
  • Even if you use more quantity of the face wash, it doesn’t lather much to create foam
  • It does make the skin a bit dry but that is only for a few minutes after which the skin feels normal
  • It made my skin feel fresh & rejuvenated everytime I use it

To sum up the Pros and Cons

PROS

  • Removes dirt & grime really well
  • Gives a cooling effect to the face
  • Packaging is sturdy and so it’s travel friendly
  • Lasts quite long and therefore it’s worth the money
  • Suitable for sensitive & oily skin
  • Available in different quantities, so if you wish try you can opt for the 50ml bottle as well

CONS

  • Not suitable for people with dry skin, as it tends to make the skin a bit dry
  • I have seen this face wash only at the Future Group outlets like Bigbazar & Easyday, so availability could be a problem
  • Though the face wash pack states that it helps prevent pimples, I don’t think it helped me in anyway to prevent pimples on my skin

My ratings: I would give it a 7.5/10

      • This lipstick is in a shade of brownish to nude. It is one of those you can wear to office or use for a natural look as well

      • The lipstick tends to make my lips a bit dry after I apply it, so I use it with my lip balm that gives it a lovely glossy effect
      • What I really liked is that it is smudge free which makes it excellent to use as a part of your everyday makeup
      • This lipstick lasts longer than expected and saves me from the trouble of reapplying it every now & then

      What can possibly irritate your Sensitive Skin ?

      Many of us claim that we have sensitive skin but in reality what is sensitive skin? Does breaking out means you have sensitive skin? No, excess oil production in the skin causes pimples; this does not directly indicate that you have sensitive skin. In case of sensitive skin, the layers of the skin get irritated due to a number of internal & external factors causing redness, itching, bumps, pimples & dry patches, etc.

      It was hard for me to accept that I have sensitive skin because with sensitive skin one has limited options to try. I cannot try all the latest products that are available in the market and even some of the best brands don’t work on my skin. Every time I try a new product on my skin, it is more like a science lab experiment anything can happen; maybe a miracle or a disaster!

      Today I am going to tell you some trigger points that can irritate your sensitive skin

      Sun Damage

      Being exposed to the harmful rays of the sun causes itching, dry skin patches, redness on the exposed areas of the body & face.

      Beauty Products

      I always loved trying new products but slowly I realised that I had to stop this. Certain ingredients in the beauty products can provoke sensitive skin making it aggressive and red !I have to be careful in experimenting with new products.

      Pollution

      Pollution leads to a lot of skin problems for all skin types but for those with sensitive skin, extra care needs to be taken to control the sensitivity of the skin.

      Stress

      Stress is the root cause for most of our problems in life and it can play havoc on your sensitive skin.

      Lack of Sleep

      Our skin repairs itself while we sleep; skin cells get renewed during sleep and thus beauty sleep is a must to soothe sensitive skin.

      Less Water Intake

      Water helps to flush out the toxins from the body and relieves sensitive skin. Less water intake causes serious damage, aggravating sensitive skin.

      Food intake

      Eating a lot of junk, processed & sugary food causes inflammation inside the body and this acts a trigger point in provoking sensitive skin.

      Hormonal Imbalance

      Any imbalance in the hormonal levels can be a nightmare for people with sensitive skin, making your skin angry & bumpy.

      Unhygienic habits

      Not keeping your hair & body clean and wearing unclean clothes can trouble your skin making it itchy, red with bumps all over.

      Temperature fluctuations & Weather conditions

      Sudden temperature change like using hot water for bathing can cause irritation for people with sensitive skin. Change in the weather leads to change in the temperature which again leads to trouble for sensitive skin.

      Active Ingredients

      Active Ingredients helps to improve the condition of the skin but too many active ingredients being used together does more of a harm than doing good.

      I hope you enjoyed reading this post and it will help you keep a track of the activities that can irritate your sensitive skin.
