Dr Vanita Rattan Micellar Gel Wash (150ml) is a skin brightening, hydrating and anti-inflammatory gel wash for skin of colour. Strengthens the skin barrier and controls sebum. Gentle yet effective wash with no soap or SLS. Your skin will feel clean, more supple and hydrated. 

Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean skin, not if cracked/damaged. In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required. 

The number 1 mistake when washing the face is to over-cleanse and strip the skin of its natural fats. Skin of colour already has less ceramides than Caucasian skin, which makes it easier for the skin barrier to be compromised, leading to sensitivity.

Our Micellar Gel Wash contains skin barrier strengthening Niacinamide, skin soothing Centella Asiatica and water magnet Glycerin.

Contains DermStim TM anti aging, anti pigmentation complex for skin of colour

It is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils. 

Irritation can be more problematic for darker skin tones, and therefore it should be avoided where possible.

For most skin types (normal/dry/combination) & persons over 16 years and over.

Persons with oily skin can also use the range but will be more suited to use the upcoming 'Dr Vanita Rattan Trio Blemish' range for oily/acne prone skin instead
(e.t.a April 2022).

Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.

1. How long would Daily Range products last for?

This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 4-6 weeks approx.

2. Is the Daily Range suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?

The range is suitable for pregnancy with the exception of the 'Antioxidant Serum'. If unsure or your circumstances vary, please check with your doctor.

3. Is the Daily Range suitable for all skin types?

Yes it is suitable for all skin types, however persons with very sensitive skin / rosacea / active skin conditions etc. should AVOID the 'Exfoliate to Glow' chemical exfoliator.

4. Can you use the Daily Range with Dr. V Hyperpigmentation kits / other professional treatments?

The cleansers, moisturiser and toner can be used, but NOT the 'Exfoliate to Glow' or 'Antioxidant Serum' please. In general, exfoliating washes/scrubs should not be used with anti-pigmentation treatments.

5. Should I still use Niacinamide, Ceramides, Retinol, Vitamin A/C/E serums from other skincare lines in conjunction with the Dr V Daily Range?

You don't need to use any of the active ingredients above from other products as they are already well represented in the Daily Range. Doing so would be a waste of money and could lead to skin reactions.

However, you can add an extra Retinol product into your skincare routine if you wish to (but not essential).

6. Do I still need to use Dr V YouTube Channel recommended products such as Garnier Micellar Water, Simple Moisturising Face Wash, DHC Cleansing Oil?

No, these products have effective counterparts in the Dr V Daily Range. For instance the Dr V Micellar Gel Wash effectively replaces both Micellar Water and a normal Face Wash.

7. Can I still use Tretinoin with the Dr V Antioxidant Power Serum?

It is acceptable to use Tretinoin with the Antioxidant Serum, but not with the Dr V Exfoliate to Glow, nor with our Facial Pigmentation Kit. 

However, it is not permissable to use Isotretinoin/Roaccutane with the Serum

8. I have never used Vitamin A before, do I need to do anything special to start off with?

The Antioxidant Power Serum contains the least irritating form of Vitamin A and at a low %, hence it can be used as normal per the application guidelines.

However, as with all treatment products, we advise patch testing first, to ensure there are no skin reactions before proceeding with application to the more prominent areas.

9. Why is there Citric acid in the Power Serum, I thought Dr V does not like it ?

Citric acid is used in low % as pH buffer, not at high % as an exfoliator (not recommended).

10. Can these products be used after microneedling procedures?

Yes, after any soreness from the microneedling has subsided, all Daily Range products can be used except for the 'Exfoliate to Glow' product.

Amazing face was

I have been on the hunt for a good face wash that is gentle yet effective and this does it all without drying out my skin….another staple from the Dr V range!

Fifa Rahman-Watson (Birmingham, GB)
Best product

I have dry skin, and purchased this micellar wash and the moisturiser. Just these two products morning and night have done wonders for my skin. If I knew it would have this effect I would have purchased it earlier. My skin is smoother, brighter, softer, and more moisturised.

Anoop Grewal (Brooklyn, US)

I love this gel cleanser. It is very gentle. My skin doesn’t feel dry after I use it.

Glenda Hill (Nashville, US)
Gel wash

Love the product and I trust it. If you follow the directions it works. My skin looks great now. I made the mistake and stopped using the inzincable I paid the price for it . I started back on the facial pigmentation kit. So don’t get lack.

Glenda Garces (Camarillo, US)
Gentle wash

This is my second time purchasing this product. It is very gentle and a staple in my daily skin care routine.

I love it

My skin feels really soft during and after wash. I like how hydrating and gentle it is on the skin. I highly recommend.

PG (Slough, GB)
Very good

I have been using this for 3 months and very happy with this cleanser. I have a combination skin and at times it is sensitive. I think this cleanser balances that out very well. Will buy again and also recommend..
