About The Ingredients


1. Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is a magical ingredient to treat acne and pimples. It helps in drying out the acne fast. Also, it can be sued to treat dark spots as well. Salicylic acid gently peels the dead skin revealing a healthier and glowing skin. But, it does not suits to every skin type so make sure that you ask your dermatologist before using any such chemicals on face.

2. Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is again one of the most used skincare chemicals. It is actually good for the skin as it helps in removing the dead and dull skin layers from the face but again this is a very strong chemical so do not use it directly on your face without asking your doctor.

3. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is perfect for drying out acne and pimples. It also has some antibacterial and antimicrobial properties which helps in killing pimple causing bacteria from the face. Overall, this is a very effective ingredient for acne and pimples.

4. Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil is generally used in anti-acne skincare products as it helps in controlling oil production which ultimately helps in controlling acne to a huge extent. Also, it has some amazing anti-ageing effects on the skin.

5. Aloe Vera Leaf Juice

Aloe vera, as we all know is very soothing and calming for the skin. Using aloe vera on your skin can soothe acne and pimples very easily. It can even help in clearing out your skin that is the reason it is used in this anti-acne face wash.

6. Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties which helps in controlling acne spread around the face. Also, it helps in treating dryness on the face caused by acne and pimples.



DermDoc anti-acne face wash with salicylic acid comes in a small plastic bottle with a pump cap. The packaging quality is good and easy to use. The pump on the top is great as it controls product wastage. Also, pump packaging is quite hygienic and handy. The only problem with the packaging is that it is not travel-friendly as if the pump is pressed by mistake then the product will come out and will ruin all your stuff. So, we will give the packaging 3.2/5.

Things To Keep in Mind

  1. If you are using such chemical-based skincare products on an everyday basis then you have to use a broad spectrum sunscreen every time stepping out in the skin as such products makes your sun sensitive and can result in tanning or sun burns.
  2. Keep the product away from the eye area because of salicylic acid and of course very strong perfumes used in this face wash.
  3. Do a patch test before using.

How to Use?


If you still want to use this face wash:

  1. Wet your face.
  2. Take a single pump of the product.
  3. Massage it all over your face for a minute or two.
  4. Rinse with normal water.



We do not recommend you to use this face wash because of several reasons. The perfume used is very strong and can make your skin dry and flaky. Even if your skin does not show any bad effects due to perfume right now, it will show in the long run so it is better to stay from such products. Also, it does not do anything on the face even what it claims t do so it good to save your money and spend on products which actually deserve your love and money.
