Mini Review: Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Daily Face Wash and Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash

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.

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.

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.



  1. I have seen this product and did not caught my attention for I thought it was just one of the not to so good products that are popping out in the market. But I guess, I am wrong, it seems a good one to try out after all.

    1. I also feel that way so I'm thankful for blogs who review those unfamiliar products first before I try them out. :)
