Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash Review | Smytten Haul | Beauty Blogger | Beauty Review

Plum is one of the most talked-about and raved beauty brands in India for past couple of years. I had seen its products and multiple reviews from my fellow beauty bloggers but was not sure which one product to pick from their wide range :D When I saw this Pore Cleansing Face Wash from Plum at Smytten as a sample, I thought, BINGO! I can now try this iconic product that seems to be one of the favorites of every beauty blogger :)

Packaging of Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash is very travel-friendly. The simple but beautiful white colored tube has an ultra-tight screw cap that needs full force to open :P

Ingredients list includes Organic Green Tea, Glycolic Acid, and Cellulose Beads and claims to have no soap, no parabens, no SLS, no bad chemicals, and no animal testing ever.

Claims that this face wash is suitable for combination skin, oily skin, acne-prone skin and will banish clogged pores, clean pore-clogging dirt and oil, giving refreshed and healthy skin.

Availability of  all Plum products is very good online on Amazon, Nykaa, Smytten, Flipkart. It is one of the best online brands visibility and availability wise :)

Quantity is this sample tube is enough to last about 10 days when used everyday on face and neck since only a small quantity is needed. I am sure that the full-sized 75 ml tube will easily last one and a half months.

Usage - Like any face wash. Apply on damp skin, massage, rinse off, follow with a moisturizer and sun protection.

Effect - My facial skin is combination-dry, ultra-sensitive and acne-prone so this seems like a good product to try. When I bought the sample from Smytten, I did not pay attention to the fact that it has mild cellulose beads for daily exfoliation. When I finally paid attention to it on the tube, I was worried since my skin breaks out in rashes, redness, pimples if I use any harsh substance/exfoliator on my face. But my worries were needless :) 

The beads are veryyyyy mild and do not tear into my very sensitive skin. Of course, I would suggest anybody with a sensitive skin to use this face wash and any beauty product with any exfoliating beads in a very careful manner or it will definitely scratch your skin. I used it carefully. I applied a thin layer on my damp face, let it sit for 1 minutes and then gently, very lightly massage it and rinsed it off. 

Yes, as per it claims, it completely cleaned my skin, all oil and dirt was gone, my face felt refreshed. From a face wash, I honestly cannot expect anything more. I have not seen any miracles on my acne marks but it is not within the purview of any face wash. 

For miracle results, we need to invest in better moisturizers, serums, oils, lotions that can work on our skin for hours on end. Nobody can get miracles from a face wash that sits on our skin for 1 minute at most.

Overall, I am happy that I tried it, it is good for oily and combination skin but dry skinned beauties will feel their skin turn very dry after using it. So they should choose something else from Plum range of goodies :)

  • No SLS, soap, alcohol, harmful chemicals, and no testing on animals
  • True to claims, leaves skin refreshed and cleans pores
  • Can be bought from Amazon or other online e-commerce sites easily
  • The exfoliating beads may be bad for veryyyyyyyy sensitive skin

Recommended -YES. Just be sure that you are using the exfoliating beads with a light hand and do not have dry skin. Rating is 4/5.    


  1. Hi, Nice Blog!!
    Make your skin smooth and moist with chemical free and paraben free cleanser , a product from Urvija.

  2. Great to see that your blog content shows care for anyone face with branded shampoo's but soap can be the good option too and to know lots of great brand for soap you can prefer blog on best soap for acne and oily skin.

  3. best face wash can't change your skin overnight, but the calming ingredients in the Milky Jelly were essential to getting my skin back on track while cleansing and removing my makeup at the same time.

  4. Thanks so much for this. Posts like these are always very handy because cleansers are a must! Best Face Wash !
