1. Affordable and available online and in standalone stores and salons
2. Suitable for all skin types and especially for sensitive skin
3. Lightens, brightens and whitens skin gently by up to one shade within 15 -20 days
4. Foams lightly and easy to wash off 
5. Does not make the skin dry, it helps in retaining the moisture and restore epidermal balance and         thus increases skin’s tolerance to environmental damage.
6. Cleanses away general impurities like sunscreen but not all make up
7. Recommended by salons world wide.
8. Formulated in Italy by world class dermatologists it did not irritate or break out my skin even after     one month of regular use


1. Not available everywhere
2. Price may be a deterrent for some but this small tube lasted me a month,using twice a day so it was  O.K. for me
3. Does not deep clean or remove makeup , in that case , I use a micellar water or biphasic cleanser        and then wash that off with this facewash.
4. Does nothing to avoid acne or blackheads

FINAL VERDICT -  It seems like a great product,if you are looking for something mild and gentle for your skin or if you have sensitive skin like me( also good when you are using anti-ageing creams or acne creams that can make the skin very dry and you may need a gentle facewash that does not strip away the skin's moisture).

I rate it a 4/5. It does what it claims .


  1. Now with summer approaching in a couple of months, I think this light face wash will be a good option

    1. If you have no other skin problems,it is a good find specially for combination or sensitive skin.

  2. O3 is a great brand. I didn't know they had regular use face wash as well. Will check it out.

    1. They have a whole range of salon products for every skin concern.

  3. That's a very well balanced review. I like products which keep the promise. But if it's not anti comedogenic, that's a problem for me

    1. Yes, but since I am already using an anti acne skin care product which helps with the blackheads, I opted for a face wash that is mild and does not irriate or dry the skin.

  4. It would have been better if it had worked on blackheads

  5. Seems to be a good product. O3 is a reliable brand too. I loved the detailed n unbiased review of the product.

  6. This is an honest review and with the long summer set in, this will be very useful :)


  7. I love the review i want something to lighten the skin tone. O3 facewash seems perfect for it. I’ll try it out

  8. I like O3 as a brand and they do have good products. I love skin care products and am particular about my skin. This looks like a good purchase and since the salons are using it too, I'm sure it's reliable as well. Thanks for the share Preeti.


  9. Nice to know of brightening options for sensitive skin types as me. I've always had to stay away from these brightening creams considering they had an adverse effect on me. The small packaging is a good option for the trials.. grt info.

    1. Since I suffer from acne and post acne pigmentation , I need to use skin lightners frequently .This doe snot show drastic change but gives a nice over all glow to the face which lasts and does not make my skin dry or irritate it.
