A lot of you must have seen a dozen of advertisements of Patanjali products on television these days. These Patanjali products are ruling over the market too, people are going crazy after these products as these claim to be all natural and herbal and pocket friendly too.

So, in this post I am going to review face wash/foam from this brand – PATANJALI ACTIVATED CARBON FACIAL FOAM.


PRICE – Rs60 for 60 gm.

My Experience-

So we all know that activated carbon (also known as activated charcoal) is very beneficial for the skin as it removes toxins and impurities from it. It is great to get rid of the gunk from the face and keep acne at bay. And when I read all these points on the internet, I quickly searched for some face washes with activated charcoal in it. Patanjali activated charcoal facial foam was one of them and cheaper than the rest.

Since I have a combination skin type, I was a little hesitant while using this product thinking that it might dry out my face but my excitement made me try it.

The product comes in a black tube with flip cap and there is something new about the packaging, it is a very regular one. The smell of it is a bit strong. The facial foam is blackish grey in colour with a soft and creamy texture which lathers up pretty well. The foam cleans all the dirt from the face and washes away quickly too. But it doesn’t remove makeup that well so I would recommend you to use a good makeup remover to get rid of the makeup and then apply this facial foam.

The face wash/foam is working pretty well in the summers and doesn’t leave my skin dry but in winters, my skin used to feel a bit dry after using it so I didn’t use it much then. It also keeps the skin and the pores clean so it allows the skin to breathe more and keeps acne at bay.

Pros :

  • Affordable
  • Good for hot and humid weather
  • Lathers well
  • Travel friendly
  • Keeps the face oil free
  • Works well for acne prone skin
  • Suitable for both men and women
  • Leaves the skin squeaky clean



  • Smells weird
  • Not ideal for winters
  • Not meant for people with dry skin

My verdict:

Overall, this face wash/foam would work great for people with oily skin. People with dry skin stay can look for better options. People with acne prone skin can try it out as it cleans the face quite well. I feel, if you want to get rid of the gunk from the face, you can use it twice or thrice a week, but not every day, at least I cannot use it daily. Also, this product can’t be used in winters as it makes the skin very dry.

I hope this review was of help to you.

You can buy this product from here – Amazon. You can also buy it from any Patanjali store too.

Thank you!
