What I think is face wash is just for cleaning the face...rest other benefits are like cherry on cake. Minty sensation relaxes and soothes the face from prickly summer heat. It removes tan as my tanned areas are lighter now.
Update 1: This bottle really goes long as I am using this from past two months twice a day and only half bottle is finished till now. I have overcome my pimples problem with it. So big thumbs up from me.
