Hello. Thanks or writing to us at healthcaremagic

The face wash that you mention is quite good and can be used as long as you desire. It contains 6% glycolic acid.
Glycolic acid is an exfoliating agent as well as a skin lightening agent. It helps with Oil control as well.
Glycolic acid is an excellent peeling agent in those who have sensitive skin. It has no negative long term side effects on skin. In fact glycolic acid is a natural product and is derived from sugarcane.
Glycolic acid has many advantages for maintaining the youthful appearance of the skin by its antiageing, skin rejuvenating actions
