Price: INR 225 for 100ml

Available at Fabindia stores and a few online stores.

My experience:

This was a totally random purchase made while shopping for kurtis at Fabindia. I really like trying new face packs but I’ve never finished any as I get bored with them 😦

This pack claiming to have haldi chandan attracted me and I bought it thinking it’ll be perfect for the upcoming summers 😛

So did it live up to my high expectations?

Review: Himalaya Herbals purifying neem face pack

Purifying Neem Pack

Good afternoon ladies J

I hope all of you are doing great J

Today, I’m reviewing a very good face pack, which is excellent for daily use.

According to Himalaya herbals,

Action:
Clears skin and prevents outbreak and recurrence of pimples. Rejuvenates and firms up the skin. Imparts natural glow. Antibacterial purifying Neem Face Pack regulates excess oil secretion, cleans clogged pores and prevents recurrence of pimples. Improves skin texture. Neem, well known for its antibacterial properties, helps in controlling acne and pimples, and their recurrence. When combined with Turmeric, it effectively eliminates acne-causing bacteria. Fuller’s Earth (Multani Mitti) cools and soothes the skin.

For:

Oily and Pimple-prone skin.

Ingredients:

Azadirachta indica (Neem, Nimba), Panka (Fuller’s earth, Multani Mitti), Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra)

 

 
Inactives:
Sodium methylparaben IP, sodium propylparaben IP, imidazolidynl urea, DMDM hydantion

Directions:
Apply evenly over cleansed face and neck, avoiding the area around eyes. Allow it to dry for 10-15 minutes. Remove with wet sponge and wash the skin with cool water. Use once or twice a week.
Do not apply on broken or inflamed skin.
May cause a tingling sensation due to herbal active ingredients, which is normal.

Price:
INR 65 for 50g
Easily available at all drugstores and online stores.


## mentioned on tube: natural herbal formulations tend to change colour over time. However, the product efficacy remains unchanged.
My experience:
This is one of the first face packs I’ve ever used. I generally don’t use much products on my face. I have quite an oily skin but fortunately have never had problematic acne or pimples. *touch wood*
This face pack is specifically meant for oily skinned people and having heard amazing reviews for it I decided to give it a try. Also, Himalaya is one brand which I trust a lot and thankfully, have never had any bad experience with any of its products J
All the ingredients of this face pack are natural and those that benefit human skin.
Azadirachta indica (Neem, Nimba) – it’s a purifying agent. It kills bacteria from the skin. Its also widely used to heal wounds.
Panka (Fuller’s earth, Multani Mitti) – improves skin texture and colour, acts against pimples,acne and other skin problems and absorbs excess oil.
Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra)- it also acts in curing pimples and also brings a natural glow to the face. Indian weddings even have a ceremony where the bride and the groom are applied turmeric to bring out glowing skin J
I use this pack once a week. Since I’ve started using it, I would say my face has become clearer. What I mean is that my skin has evened out, not a very remarkable difference but something I can surely see. I think that’s because of the fuller’s earth.
Also, I’ve not had the occasional pimple or two I used to get earlier.
Since I do not have any prominent problem of acne/pimples I can not say if it works on that but I would say it should be tried definitely, because I don’t think it can be harmful.


Its consistency is that of a thick paste. Its very easy to apply on face.

The only disadvantage of this face pack is that its smell is bad
