What RSL say about Hydra White Face-wash?
Hydra White Whitening Face Wash is a skin whitener designed to remove dirt, pollution and oil build up.Visible results in less then 4 weeks. Use daily to achieve fairer and healthier skin. Clinically approved and Dermatological tested.

I  have been using this face wash for a complete month now. And I've used about 75% of the face wash by now. During the first multiple washes I did not really feel any sort of a positive change with this product. But gradually I began noticing that my dull complexion was growing brighter. I wouldn't say that it magically will make your face glow or make it look white instantly as the product claims. In my case it took me a few weeks to realise that it was working on my face. It was not instant. Also I did not notice any whitening, like you will not see some sort of a white cast on your face or some glow. It will appear to brighten complexion in the sense that your skin will feel more clean, healthy looking and fresh. The product also claims to even the skin complexion but I disagree with this to some extent. My face and neck both are different tones and when applying this face wash I made sure I put the same amount on my neck region too. And now after using this product for a month I can safely say that it did not do much to even my complexion in the face and neck regions. I use this face wash daily twice or sometimes thrice a day.

What RSL say about Hydra White Face-cream?
Hydra White Whitening cream restores skin to an even complexion. Formulated to brighten skin. Immediate results in less than 7 days with best results in 4 weeks of use.

The first thing I noticed about this cream was it's fragrance. I am not a fan of it's fragrance to be honest. The first time I smelled it and the very first thing which came to my mind was a drug-store hair removal cream :/ that's awful I know! Coming back to the product itself, the product did not not show instant results, as mentioned in the description of the product. I paired it with the face-wash and it worked just fine. Not something out-of-the-box. Plus since I have a combination skin type the cream tends to make my face a bit greasier after sometime which is again not very favourable since it's already too hot. So I think I would be using it more in winters than in this terribly-hot weather.About the whitening part, the cream did not lighten my acne marks or any pigmentation. Overall it just made my complexion better than before but did not really work on the troubled areas of the face.

Price & Availability: Whitening face-wash is worth 95Pkr and the Whitening cream worth 150Pkr. Can be bought online from or it is also available at local drug-stores across Karachi like Naheed etc. 

Points in Favour:

  • Reasonably priced.
  • Did not cause any irritations.
  • No side-effects.
  • Face wash works fine and makes complexion better.
  • Easily available.
  • Travel friendly packaging.

Points not in Favour:

  • Fragrance of the cream is a turn off.
  • Face cream tends to make skin a bit greasier hence not very suitable for summers.
  • Both the products do not have instant effects.
  • Does not even the skin tone.
  • Does not help lighten the acne marks or any areas of pigmentation on the face.
