Review: Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Mask

Dawn writes: This mask is cheap, given the amount in the tube and the performance. I think it clears pores very well, and helps breakouts heal faster. This mask is very good for oily skin as it sucks up all the dirt. It dries at around 15 minutes if you cover the entire face very well. My sister thinks you don't need to apply too thickly though - you only need to apply a smooth, thin layer and you'll get the same results. Best to use this product before your night routine - with clean pores, your skin will drink up your beauty creams like there's no tomorrow!

The only annoying thing about it is the SMELL! It smells soooo, well, GREEN with a hint of turmeric. It's probably what clean mud with chlorophyll smells like, haha. So no, I don't like the way it smells, but not as much as I hate Apple Cider Vinegar's fumes.

I convinced my bestfriend, Liz, to buy one. Now her entire family is using it!
