Review on ‘Dermavive Hydra Cleanser’ – Now Available on!

By Bhawna D. - May 16, 2018


*PR Sample but all opinions presented are 100% honest and unbiased.

A few days ago, I was thinking that it has been a while since I reviewed facial cleansers on this website. So here I am today with my personal take on the Dermavive hydra cleanser. Dermavive is an Australian brand that launched its products in India some time ago. Although I am not sure about their offline presence, all of their products are readily available on different e-commerce websites. I did manage to checked out their complete catalogue and they surely have another product which intrigued me, i.e. Dermavive Hair Enhancer Shampoo. Based on the name, I am assuming its meant exclusively for people with straight who seek volume enhancing hair care products. 


Dermavive face wash is an ideal pick for people who have sensitive or acne-prone skin. It is endowed with the goodness of oatmeal, which helps in preventing new breakouts! 

An Introduction to Dermavive: 
Dermavive products are curated especially for dry, itchy and irritated skin. It contains natural colloidal oatmeal which is a scientifically proven ingredient and provides several beneficial features for managing and treating dry skin conditions. Moreover, it restores the normal pH balance of the skin and maintains natural acidity of the skin, thereby protecting it against dryness. Further, it also works as a skin protectant and enhances the barrier of the skin.Since these products are used in managing and treating people with dry skin problems, there is no fragrance added and the odour is the natural odour of the colloidal oatmeal.While the odour maybe present while smelling it directly from the tube. After applying it on the skin it becomes odourless. Some people appreciate the odour while others don't. 

Suitability - All skin types particularly dry, inflamed, sensitive and mature. (As claimed by the brand)


A unique preparation, combining the multi-action properties of Natural Colloidal Oatmeal so as to protect the stripping of essential oils and hydrate the skin; while eliminating excess sebum, dirt and other particles. It is enriched with Sodium PCA & other emollients having moisturising properties to soften and soothe the skin. A natural pH balanced soap-free cleanser providing protection against irritation of sensitive skin.

The dermavive face wash comes in a cuboid carton box that has all the information that you would be interested in gathering. Inside you will find the actual cleanser packaging which is in the convenient tube form. You can easily dispense out the required quantity of the product by lifting away the flip-open lid. The complete packaging has a colour scheme of green and white. Other variants of the cleanser may have a different colour scheme. The tube of the cleanser seems quite huge and it definitely is travel-friendly


My Experience:
When you are aware that your skin falls under a particular type, you don’t usually pick up products that aren’t meant for you! Over these years, I have realized that my skin is not just oily and acne-prone, but it also shows traits of sensitive skin. Most of the products fail to suit me and getting bumps here and there is so frequent with me that I steer away from products, which I have zero knowledge about. The brand recommended me this cleanser after I mentioned to them my skin issues. One thing which struck me since then is the response of this cleanser on my skin.

As soon as I got my PR package, I couldn’t curtail my excitement and I gave it a shot! After a time frame of ten days, I decided to write down my experiences concerning this cleanser. The first thing that would gather your attention is the fragrance of the product. This cleanser has a strong fragrance of oats and the brand claims it to be having natural oats fragrance instead of a chemically synthesised one. Coming to the texture and colour of the cleanser, the product has an almost a transparent colour with a faint yellow tinge to it. The texture is somewhat runny instead of a gel-like consistency. Also, the product is devoid of SLS and soap which is why the cleanser foams decently but not extremely lathery like other drugstore face cleansers. 


For use, I take out liberal quantity (as mentioned on the packaging) and rub it between my palms to create some foam. After which, I massage my face for 20 seconds or so and then I rinse it off using normal water. Initially, I presumed it to be slightly hydrating but I’m extremely glad by the fact that it takes off all of the grease and dirt from the face, leaving the skin soft and smooth to touch. Apart from this, it instantly brightens up the skin, making it look supple and cleansed. The only downside being, this cleanser fails to take off your waterproof makeup. On days when I apply my gel eyeliner and mascara, it left behind a lot of traces of the same. But that happens with a lot of mild cleansers, which is why I resort to my Garnier micellar water for taking off the makeup and then I head for the facial wash using this face wash.

💙The packaging is simple, convenient and travel-friendly.
💙It foams decently and is free from SLS, soap, parabens, fragrance, parabens and lanolin.
💙Takes off grease, dirt, pollution and oils; leaving behind a healthy glow.
💙The fragrance is devoid of chemicals.
💙Complete list of ingredients has been stated.

👉The fragrance might be strong for some people’s preference.
👉It does not take off water-proof makeup.
👉Lastly, it is definitely not a budget-friendly cleanser. 


RATING: 4.4/5 (0.2 deducted for every con)

I loved the effects of dermavive hydra cleanser on my skin. But unfortunately, while picking my facial cleansers, I would usually keep a less budget as its a wash-off product that remains on the skin for the least amount of time. But of course, if you are willing then it's worth giving a try!
