Thanks for the suggestions.
Requesting you to kindly check the spelling & write me again the combination which you have prescribed as "faceclin gel innilac" morning and "nilac ac gel" In night, as I am unable to get this in market by searching this name.

Kindly also prefer me the correct soap or face wash which is perfect for my skin.

Brief Answer:
sorry for the mistake

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I am extremely sorry for the spelling mistake.
It is " faceclin gel" in morning and "nilac ac gel" in night.
You can use dermadew acne soap.
It has good anti acne property as well as it also moisturises face.

If you are not getting faceclin ask for clindamycin gel.
In place of nilac ac you can ask for adapalene gel.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
