Give me the names - Volcanic, Charcoal, Black Sand, Activated - and I am sold.
On top of have the word 'Volcanic Clay', it also has a scrublet with it. Okay, the scrublet because the I always try to try the L'Oreal ones which retails for around 400 INR and I saw this along with the scrublet for just 79 INR. How could I not buy it?

Now tell me one thing - where do you see the volcanic clay? They referred to Kaolin. Yes, Kaolin one of the seven types of volcanic clay. And Kaolin is present almost in all oil absorbing product! Talk about deceiving the public!
Scrublet - Main reason for buying for buying this (other than Volcanic Clay)
- It looks the same like the ones that come with L'Oreal.
- Made of rubber.

- Works perfectly. I used it with scrubs, cleansers and face wash. I can understand the hype attached to it.
- Sadly, it itself gets dirty easily.
Pond's No Blackhead Deep Clean Facial Foam With Unique Volcanic Clay
By now you might have realized that I have absolutely no interest in the face wash.
I do not even use face wash. I generally keep them with me because they come in tight tube, easy to travel and works as a perfect non-drying handwash - yes, that what I do with FACE washes.
- Its thick.
- I feel it does nothing for the blackheads.
- Its just a face wash that take off the oil from your face.
- Not suitable for sensitive skin or dry skin.
Will I Buy Again? I always have the Scrublet now. Why will I buy this again?
Do I Recommend - Yes, if you need the scrublet. You can try the face wash if you need ta face wash for the sake of a face wash, tight on budget and have oily skin. Otherwise, forget it!
I got them in December. In case you are wondering why reviewing this all of sudden then let me tell you that I found something else which have one of loved my key words in skincare.
