Himalaya Herbals’ Purifying neem face wash:Review

Himalaya Herbals’ Purifying neem face wash 72g
Amongst the array of facial cleansers that I have purchased and tried, I have found that Garnier Naturals’ Deep pore exfoliating face wash is the best – it was very effective in oil control during the hot summer months when my skin had become increasingly greasy and unmanageable. Now that summer is over, I wanted to try some ‘natural product’ that could not only cleanse but also help with acne and pimples. So I purchased this Himalaya Herbals’ Purifying neem face wash 72g for Rs.45/- (around $1). It’s a soap-free formulation enriched with awesome herbal ingredients like Neem and turmeric (buy here) that have anti-bacterial and purifying properties. However this cleanser is not 100% natural as methyl paraben and propyl paraben are being used as preservatives.

By the way, I have tried many of Himalayas’ products as well. Himalaya Herbals’ neem face pack/mud pack for instance has had an amazing effect on my complexion and also helped me deal with excessive oiliness and pimples. And it’s almost a month since I am using this purifying neem face wash and it make my face feel fresh and clean by getting rid of grime without drying my skin. Also, I haven’t seen any pimples popping up on my face these days. But it looks to me that it might not be of much help to extremely greasy skins during summer as this gel-like cleanser is meant for all skin types. Also it might not be tackle excess sebum (oil) production that well.

    When my skin and hair is oily, I feel as if OPEC is coming over to lay claim to my skin and hair for oil production. I, thankfully, haven’t had that problem since switching to Aveeno cleansers.

    Natural products are definitely good for your skin, but not everything is good for all skin types.

    Of course natural products are good for your skin! But it sounds like this product is a combination of science and nature. Just like any other product, not everything is good for all skin types. It's important to know what your skin type is and what works with it. Also, if it's natural it's good to do a test on your skin to make sure you don't have any food allergies.

    The herbal neem face wash gel from Himalaya is a must for everyone who wants a clean, pimple-free and glowing skin.Neem and turmeric, an important herbal ingredient in the gel is known for its high medicinal values. It acts as an anti-bacterial and hence prevents any pimples.

    My skin is oily and after trying many face packs I bought Himalaya Gentle Face Wash Gel two years ago. Before that I used Garnier face packs which did not suit to my skin so I replaced it with Himalaya Gentle Face Wash Gel. I like it very much.

    found that the face wash contained the extracts of Neem and Turmeric which are beneficial in solving various skin problems such as acne, pimples and redness of the face. My skin is sensitive and often gets red very easily if it comes into contact with any harsh cosmetics. But when I tried this product for the fist time I found that there was no allergic reaction on my face and my skin had become soft, smooth and supple. There was a natural glow of health reflecting on my face. It also removed minor skin blemishes and pimples I had on my face and improved the skin texture.

    I have dry skin. but recently i have been getting pimples on my face. i do not know why as my skin is not oily. a salesman at a cosmetic store suggested i buy this neem face wash. i was reluctant at first but then thought of giving it a try. it has just been four days since i have used it so i guess it's too early to see any difference. but does it actually help reduce pimples? i really hope it doesn't cause me any breakouts :O

  16. For the first few weeks when I used this face wash, I didn't get any pimples. But it could have been due to other factors or maybe it was just that phase where pimples disappear by themselves. I haven't really used this face wash again as it doesn't lather much and you have to use a lot of water to get it off your face - you know what I mean- a slippery, gooey kind of consistency that doesn't give a cleansed feel.

    The leaves of the neem tree have antibacterial and antiviral properties, and are often used in cosmetic and skin treatment preparations.
