Himalaya Neem Face Wash Review

My take on Himalaya Neem Face Wash:

Packaging: Himalaya Neem Face Wash comes in a basic tube with a flip cap top. The cap shuts tightly, but then if you plan to travel long with it I suggest taping the cap with a cellophane. The tube is see-through, so the amount of product left inside is visible which makes it convenient to repurchase. The back of the tube has relevant details about the face wash. Overall the packaging is pretty decent. There isn’t anything fancy about it, at the same time, I don’t have any major complaints with it. The face wash comes in various sizes and is also available with a pump dispenser.

Himalaya Neem Face Wash Packaging

Texture: Himalaya Neem Face Wash is a light green colored gel. The consistency is thick. The gel is not runny at all and one can easily control the product that comes out.

Fragrance: It has the generic Neem fragrance. Almost every neem face wash in the market smell like this. I find the scent nice and refreshing. It’s not overwhelming.

Efficacy: I usually take one dollup of the gel, mix a little bit of water and massage it all over my face. Mixing it with water produces a mild lather and gives a smooth cleansing action. The face wash rinses off quite easily and leaves the skin squeaky clean without leaving behind any slippery residue. It removes skin impurities and oils really well. It is not a moisturizing face wash, at the same time, the face wash does not leave my skin dry or stretchy. It perfectly balances the skin’s pH level. If you have the tendency to apply heavy makeup, you can use this face wash as a second cleanser after removing makeup with an oil cleanser. Otherwise, this works really well as a standalone cleanser.

Himalaya Neem Face Wash Texture

The Himalaya Neem Face Wash has got two of my favourite ingredients Neem and Turmeric, both of which are so underrated in my opinion. In India, we get ample amount of both the ingredients easily yet we neglect it’s benefits. As a kid I used to use a homemade paste of this combo for every other skin problems. Neem has antibacterial effects and Turmeric is an excellent antiseptic. The combination of both are so good for any skin type, particularly those with acne issues. In my experience, this face wash alone doesn’t treat acne. It does aid in healing acne when used in conjunction with other products and a good diet. Overall, this is a great maintenance face wash for acne prone skin to prevent future breakouts.
