Product Review: Himalaya Herbals

Hello, back as promised haha. Im going to review two skin care products that I've been trying for more than a month. Took me a while to review these products because I wanted to make sure I got at least a month in of trying them. These products are from Himalaya Herbals, a range of natural, effective and safe products that use rare herbs carefully selected from the foothills of the Himalayas.

I first purchased the Neem foaming face wash when I was looking for a product that would help when my skin got irritated and flaky after I tried using the Lulur bar. My skin is kind of sensitive, so I have to watch what I use or else it tends to act up or worse break out!

Anyway, on to the review!! :D




Left: Neem Foaming Face Wash;
Right: Purifying Mud Pack



Purifying Mud Pack


What it claims:
Firms, tihtens and rejuvenaes the facial skin and keeps it young. Imparts a natural glow. A mineral rich Mud Pack that absorbs excess oil, cleans clogged pores and removes blackheads and deeply embedded impurities. Restores your skin's elasticity and improves skin texture. Helps control blemishes and blackheads and minimises wrinkles.

The ingredient Fuller's Earth deep cleanses the skin and has cooling properties. Walnut removes skin impurities, blakheads and dead cells. Mineral Clay heals, improves circulation and makes the skin soft and supple.
Directions:
Mx the pack with water to make a thin paste. Apply evenly over a cleansed face and neck, avoiding area around the eyes. Allow to dry 10-15 minutes. Remove with wet sponge, and wash the skin with cool water. Use once or twice a week. Follow up with Himalaya Herbals Face Moisturizing Lotion

Ingredients:
Mineral Clay, Fuller's Earth, Khu-khus, Walnut, aqua, glycerin, bentonite, methyl paraben, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1, 3-diol. Sodium EDTA, Xanthan gum, Sodium lauryl sulphate, Fragrance

What I like about it:
- I like that my skin feels tight after. Not tight like its super dry, but it's almost like I can feel my pores closing up.
- My face feels squeeky clean after washing it off.

What you should consider:
- I wouldnt say that this mask helps keep breakouts at bay or gets rid of blackheads or impurities.
- I avoid applying this on areas of my skin which are sensitive or my dry areas (chin, mouth area)


Overall, I think it's a so-so product. Im not really impressed with it, ill probbly keep using it since I dont want it to go to waste but I wouldn't repurchase.





Neem Foaming Face Wash

what it claims:
Soap free daily use gentle foaming face wash to cleanse and refresh your skin without over drying. Leaves your skin clear, soft and supple. The soft and gentle foam of Neem foaming face wash spreads smoothly over your face and deep cleanses your skin by removing excess oil and impurities. Unlike soaps, Neem foaming face wash does not leave the skin dry and feeling stretched. Neem and Tumeric well known for their purifying functions, clear facial skin of blemishes

Directions:
Moisten face and spread foam gently all over face. Wash off and pat dry.

Ingredients:
Neem, Tumeric, Vetiver, Aqua, BHT, Citric Acid, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Dimethicone copolyol, Disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantoin, Perfume Floraherb inde, polypropylene terephthalate, Polysorbate 20, Sodium laureth sulfate, CI No. 19140 & CI. No. 42090

What I like about it:
- Its light but at the same time it cleanses the face very well. I usually have to wash my face twice whenever I remove my makeup because I fell like it doesnt really get rid of the makeup, but with this one, I see all the makeup it removes as soon as I spread it on my face.
- Its very gentle and non drying.
- It helped get rid of my flaky and patchy areas of my skin.
- I like that it comes with a pump that makes it more sanitary


Im on my second bottle and will definitely repurchase when I run out again!


It's always a hit or miss whenever trying out new products. I purchased the mud pack after I finishedmy first bottle of the foam wash thinking it would deliver as well. Have any of you tried any of these? How do you like em? Any suggestions for a great mask? :D
