My Experience:

The Iraya Basil & Mint Balancing Face Wash comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump lock is such that it can be locked back into place in case you want to travel around with this face wash and it wouldn't spill or leak the contents. Also, since it has a transparent body, you can always know when is a good time to buy a next bottle. Nice, simple and travel friendly packaging.

The Face wash itself is a light orange colored liquid that has a very cosmetic/artificial kind of fragrance to it. It did not smell of either basil or mint. The fragrance, even though is not overpowering, can be a dislike for people who like non-scented products. For someone like me, who is ever so slightly disturbed by scents in skin care products, I found the scent of this one way too artificial, but the good part is that it doesn't stay around post wash so it is kind of okay by me.

Anyway, moving on, the Face Wash lathers well, and cleans off any dirt or impurities on the face without making my skin dry. That is one thing that I truly love about this Face Wash. With ingredients like mint, I was expecting the face was to be cooling to the point of tingling, however the post wash feel is cool, but in a very refreshing sort of way.

Overall, The Iraya Basil& Mint Balancing Face Wash has completely delivered on all of its claims. It cleans effectively, balances the moisture in your skin, and does NOT make it feel dry or stretchy. Skin feels clean and refreshed in a very gentle and soothing sort of way. I am totally loving this face wash these days, and if I were to again buy something from Iraya, this Basil & Mint Balancing Face Wash would be the first thing that I would pick. Although it is mentioned on the pack that this face wash is meant for Normal to Oily skin, however, since it is so gentle, and non-drying, I think even dry skin beauties would not face any issues with this. The scent of the product may be a little artificial in the first stance, but since the performance is great, I wouldn't bother about it too much. A must try from Iraya. 
 I Recommend!
