Good evening ladies,
One of the many drug store brands of facial care that I often go back to is Himalaya Herbals. My first encounter with this product was it's Neem Face Mask which Dawn had previously reviewed way back in 2010. Although sadly, I haven't seen a return of that Neem Face Mask, Himalaya still remains one of my top facial care brands.
Last October, we introduced you to their line of facial care and today we focus on two of their facial wash: Gentle Exfoliating Daily Face Wash and Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash.
So let's get into our experience and the product details of each.
Here is the product description from their website: A soap-free, daily use face wash that cleanses and clarifies your skin of impurities, giving you a clear, radiant and even complexion. Saffron, well-known for its complexion enhancing properties helps clear skin of spots and blemishes while Licorice and White Dammer help regulate melanin synthesis restoring your skin's natural fairness. Pomegranate nourishes while Cucumber soothes your skin. Use morning and evening for visibly brighter, clearer and glowing skin.
The key ingredients for this product are: licorice, white dammer, saffron, cucumber and pomegranate.
This product cleans well and is not drying. Skin feels soft and refreshed after. Though I honestly cannot attest to it's whitening effect as my face doesn't have much of any uneven coloring (or I don't particularly notice it) for me to even judge whether it has helped in evening out my skin tone.
Here is the product info from their website as well: A soap-free, daily use exfoliating face wash that effectively cleanses your skin and gently exfoliates dead skin cells. Apricot granules gently scrub off dead skin cells, help stimulate fresh cell growth and prevent formation of blackheads. Neem and Lemon deep cleanse and remove excess oil while Aloe Vera soothes your skin and maintains its natural moisture balance, leaving your skin fresh, rejuvenated and glowing, day after day.
The key ingredients for this are: apricot, aloe vera, neem, lemon and red lentil.
This particular product is a favorite of mine. It is one of the gentlest exfoliating facial wash I've ever used. It's also great that its granules are organic (apricot granules) meaning they won't do much harm to the environment. After every wash, my skin feels rejuvenated and clean. It's not drying as well. The scent is minimal.
My sister also likes this facial wash as she had not experienced any break out with this product.
It's within the middle price range which isn't all that bad (79 and 74 for 50 ml; 129 and 124 for 100 ml). I would recommend buying the bigger bottle as it is more cost efficient. My daily wash at home was the Gentle Exfoliating Daily Face Wash until 2 months ago. The 100 ml bottle lasted for a good two months since my sister and I both use it. Haven't bought another one since my sister bought another facial wash and I am too lazy to buy myself another one. But I will be buying this one again once we finish the facial wash we currently have now.
So that's it for this short review on these two facial wash. For those who like organic products (and even those who are just curious about organic stuff), hope this was helpful.
