Cleanser for Combination to oily acne prone skin in Winter

Vivel Cell Renew Pollution Protect Cleansing Cream + Scrub Review

Hey all,
Weekend has passed like a cloud but the weekdays are going very slow…wonder why….. Anyway with the season being winter I am trying to switch over my products to keep my skin clean and pimple free. My skin type in winter will be Combination (dry patchy cheeks and acne prone). If you have seen my recent post on the new launch of Vivel then you would probably know about the new range of cleansers.

Vivel’s Claim:

Claim was so attractive and that made me try the cleansing cream for the first time.
I got the 2 new cleansers among which 1 is gel based and the other is cream based. I have never used cream based cleansers so far as my skin is oily to combo. I have a HG cleanser which will never leave my routine but the evening cleansers keep changing. My usual cleanser which I use to remove all impurities from the all day work was too harsh on my winter combo skin and since my cheeks were getting I got the new Vivel Cell Renew Pollution Protect Cleansing Cream + Scrub.

The name itself looks so good and so I tried using it every evening to cleanse up skin from the entire day’s dirt and grime and what not…(first time a cream based cleanser)


Vivel has got a neat packaging with a flip cap that secures well. The squeeze tube works fine dispersing the required quantity of the cleansing cream. It is ideal for travel purpose and hence I love it.


In short; lovely fruity fragrance. In a way for the fragrance I like using the cleansing cream as it energizes  and refreshes my senses with the scent.


Although it is a cream cleanser it is not very thick and of semi liquid white cream which is almost runny. There are fine particles in the cream as scrub. The particles are not harsh on my skin and can be used daily. Although this cannot replace the regular weekly scrub I use.

Price: 50 ml for Rs 79

My take on the Cleansing Cream:

So here is how I use,

After coming home from work I splash some water on face and take the pea size quantity of the cream cleanser, rub between the fingers and apply on face with two hands. The fragrance is so good and the fine scrub particles are light and gentle to remove the dirt and impurities without clogging or drying out. It foams well and after about 30 secs of circular action I wash off and instantly I feel the smoothness and freshness on skin. I top it up with moisturizer (winter moisturizer). My cheeks do not feel dry or stretchy at all and the most important thing is never irritated the existing pimples nor caused any breakouts.

What I love..
  • Light cream cleanse
  • Fine scrub particles for everyday use
  • Not at all harsh
  • No clogging of pores but helps in de-clogging
  • Fragrance is fruity and I like it
  • No dry patches on cheeks, totally not drying
  • Did not cause whiteheads or breakouts
  • Affordable

  • Actually nothing but wish they bring this cleansing cream in 30 ml or 10 ml for travelling purpose.

Overall I recommend to all those girls with combination skin (even oily to normal skin not sure about the dry skin) to try it out if you are looking for a gentle cleanser to scrub of all dirt & grime as well as cleanse well without leaving any dry patches.

My rating: 4.5/5

*PR Sample but the review is my own opinion*
