My skin type is usually normal but it has changes with the weather. In summers it remains normal but in monsoon it becomes a bit oily. I have to change my skincare routine according to its nature, so as a result the products also change. Last summer when I visited Delhi, the weather was so hot there that I found some pimples popping out on my face. It was so irritating. So I bought Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash because it’s a herbal product and I always prefer herbal products for my skin. I used it twice a day and after four days only, my skin became clear from pimples and I found my skin clean and soft. After that unfortunately I couldn’t buy it again as I went on trying other face washes in which I found some good while some were not of my type. But now I have it again and I’m so happy to review one of my favorite face wash.
What it claims: A soap free herbal formulation that gently removes impurities and prevents pimples. Neem, well known for its anti-bacterial properties, kill problem causing bacteria, and Turmeric effectively controls acne and pimples. Use regularly for clear, soft and pimple free skin. Direction of use: Moisten face and neck, apply a small amount of purifying Neem Face Wash and gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off & pat dry. Use twice daily. Active ingredients: Azadirachta indica (Neem, Nimba) Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra) Packaging: It’s packed in squeeze out tube with the top cap. I find it a bit difficult to open up the cap but that’s a good thing in a way coz there’s no fear of it leaking out of the tube during traveling. Net weight: 50 ml Price: Rs. 45 In the mirror of my own experience: Seeing pimples on my face was really horrible, although they were small ones but still I never have had any so it was a bad experience for me. But after using this face wash, they all vanished in 4-5 days and that was really impressive. Since then I’ve used this facewash only during summers despite the fact that I don’t face much of pimple problem now. But still it’s really good for me in summers.
What I like about this facewash: It can make your face pimple free in less than a week. It’s quite moisturizing and even if you skip out the moisturizer, it’ll do. But if your skin is normal you should use a moisturizer after this. Makes the face look fresh and supple. Gives a lovely soothing effect to the face. Didn’t experience any breakouts on using it. The packaging is nice and the product is handy. It’s a herbal product and that too from Himalaya Herbals, so you can trust the product; no side effects. Does not sting much if goes into the eyes. Very little quantity is required in one wash and thus the quantity of the product is worth the price. So of course, the price is very reasonable. What I don’t like: It’s not good for me in winters as my skin becomes dry at that time so I usually don’t use this face wash in winters. It does not produce much lather which, in a way is good, but not for those who want lather producing face washes. Final thoughts- So overall all I have to say is that I’m loving this face wash and one of the best face washes that I’ve used till now. I’m surely gonna buy it again and again for summers and monsoon. Rating: 4.5/5 Will I recommend it: Yes, it should be must for oily and combination skinned girls. Even normal skin type girls should try it out in case they face any problems like pimples or acne. So that was all about my experience with this facewash from Himalaya. Hope this review helps!! have you tried it?? What do you think?
