Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Pack Review

Hello Everyone!

Today’s review is about the Purifying Neem Face Pack from Himalaya Herbals. I have been using this face pack for ages and this is one of my ever favorite face packs. I love using neem in my skincare recipes, especially for acne curing home treatments as it clears out acne very effectively. When I first saw this face pack on the market, I couldn’t resist buying it especially for its ‘neem’ content. Read my complete review on this neem face pack below.

Product Description:

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack:

Packaging: This face pack comes in a typical Himalaya Herbals white tube with a green flip type cap similar to most of the other products of this same brand. Unlike the other face packs and face washes from Himalaya Herbals, the flip cap of this product is sturdy enough and hence the product is travel friendly :) I have no complaints about its packaging.

Colour, Consistency & Fragrance: The colour of this neem face pack can be said as muddy dark green and it has a gritty texture. Though many find its colour unattractive, I somehow liked the colour 😛 There are tiny scrubbing particles are present in this moderately thick smooth and muddy green face pack. The fragrance is neither sweet nor adorable but it is natural and not irriating to the senses. If you have a very sensitive nose, the fragrance might bother you but it did not affect me at all. I actually loved the natural neem fragrance of this face pack. The main thing I wanted to mention is that, I did not find any traces of turmeric in this pack. It doesn’t stain my skin even a bit too.

How it works: After a heavy makeup day or after an improper skin care week, when your skin screams for something natural to clear all the impurities, there fits perfectly, this Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack. It clears out all the dirt, impurities and oiliness from the skin without leaving skin extra dry. My normal-oily skin loves this face pack a lot and hence I using this 5-6 times a month for its amazing cleansing effects. It doesn’t help much in curing my stubborn acne bumps but my acne problem is completely prevented while using this face pack. For many people out there, it has does wonders on curing acne but the results vary from person to person. It helps a bit in shrinking my acne bumps but nothing can do wonders like freshly pasted neem leaves :)
I simply apply this face pack evenly over my facial skin and leave on for 10 minutes. It spreads easily though being gritty and dries up quickly too. For the first 2 minutes, I felt that tingling sensation on my skin but later it disappeared. After drying, I did wet my finger tips, pat and scrub my facial skin in a gentler way. The gritty granules helped effectively with the exfoliation process too and hence I did not need to get a scrub on my hand while using this face pack :) My skin is left soft, smooth, oil free and perfectly clean after usage. I personally love the muddy green colour too. With regular usage, it evened out my skin tone and prevented acne bumps popping out in an excellent way. I am deeply in love with this super cleansing face pack for the price it comes and for the worth it delivers! Face pack starters must grab at least a single pack of this product however if you have extra dry skin, this might leave your skin stretchy. (It can be made alright by a rich moisturizer though!)

    Do you recommend this pack for already acne prone skin? :) Because I used to use a cucumber face pack but my dermatologist said not to as it spreads the acne :/

    And yes Lance, i am going tomorrow to buy the body shop scrub 😀 Just got text from them saying they’re having a 20-30% off m/

    • Lancy says

      Hiee Jyo :-h You can definitely use this pack on already acne prone skin as it doesn’t worse acne more. It actually prevents acne and reduces the already present bumps up to a good extent. Apply a thin layer and wash it off after getting dried.

      Do let me know how your TBS body scrub works after trying it out! :)
