Follow with Himalaya Face Moisturising Lotion. Use Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack once a week to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin.

Natural herbal formulations tend to change color over time. However, the product efficiency remains unchanged.

My Opinion: - I get pimples every now and then.  So I always keep a couple of face washes that claim to prevent/minimize the appearance of pimples. Therefore, today I am reviewing the highly acclaimed Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash which claims to prevent pimples and purify skin in all skin types. Right away coming to the packaging of this product, it very basic, very simple like most face washes. A transparent plastic tube with a flip open lid. The lid shuts tight and the packaging is very hygienic and travel friendly. It can be safely carried around in a purse.

             The face wash is bright green in color, and is like a liquidy gel. It’s not exactly watery but it’s definitely runny. The fragrance is sweet herbal-y with a touch of fresh Neem leaves. According to me, the fragrance is refreshing and rejuvenating.  I take out a small blob on the palm of my hand, add a little water, lather it and apply it all over my face and neck. Then I wash it off and really feel fresh thereafter. I use this face wash atleast thrice a day and no it has not dried out my skin. But yes it controls oil for about 2 hours and then my nose becomes shiny (My skin is very oily in the summers). I generally use a toner and a moisturiser and top it off with a loose powder.

               This face wash soothes my skin while breakouts, and truly prevents pimples and therefore I am very happy with it. It does not lather much (its soap free) and I am personally happy that this face wash does not contain SLS (foaming/lathering agent). It contains Neem which is extremely beneficial for pimples of most kinds. Also is contains turmeric which too is great for the skin. My skin feels clean, soft and clears up within a week. What more can I ask for from a face wash of Rs 50.

Pros: -

* It’s very affordable and easily available, it can be found in many different sizes

* Contains Neem & Turmeric which are good for skin

* Does not dry out my skin- I wash my face thrice a day

* Very gentle on pimples, soothes my skin

* Refreshingly sweet herbal fragrance

* Soap-free, hence very mild on sensitive skin

* Available in a number of different sizes

* All claims are true

Cons: -

* Does not foam/lather much, though for me it’s not a con but for others it might be

* It claims to purify skin in all skin types but dry skin girls stay away or use only once a day

         I rate this Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash 4.75 out of 5. I recommend this face wash to girls with oily skin who are frequented with pimples like me.  Girls with combination skin can use it once a day but girls with dry skin stay out. I have been using this face wash for many years now and I must say I love it and always have it in stock.

hi , this is my absolute go to, and a total steal for the price... besides it totally does what it says. every time my skin starts breaking out i literally run to the store and buy this. i realised that whenever i travel and i mean by rail or road, long distances, i want to stock this tube with me. It just prevents your skin from acting up due to travel , dust or grime issues.
