Today I am going to review a good mud face pack from Himalaya Herbals, a well known herbal brand in India. This pack is named as Himalaya Herbals Clarifying Mud Face Pack. Anything that sounds clarifies, fades, brightens attracts me a lot as I am a person who likes maintaining my skin clean and spot free. Let us check how this face pack fared for me.
Claims of the Face Pack:
Himalaya’s Clarifying Mud Pack is a unique formulation of natural ingredients that refreshes and rejuvenates facial skin by absorbing excess oil and removing impurities. It is enriched with Walnut, which removes blackheads and dead cells, Fuller’s Earth, which removes deep-seated impurities. Mineral Clay improves circulation and makes skin soft and tender.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 60 for 50g
Cleanse face and neck. Apply Clarifying Mud Pack evenly all over face and neck, avoiding area around eyes and mouth. Let it dry for 10-15 minutes and remove with wet sponge/towel. Rinse with cool water. For best results use twice a week.
- Walnut removes dirt, blackheads and dead cells.
- Khus-Khus cleans and tones the facial skin.
- Mineral Clay heals, improves circulation and keeps the skin fresh and soft.
- Fuller’s Earth has cooling and anti-inflammatory properties that removes deep-seated dirt and pollutants.
My Take on Himalaya Herbals Clarifying Mud Face Pack:
This face pack comes in a typical Himalaya Herbals face pack tube with a green flip open cap. Though the packaging looks neat, I don’t find it travel friendly. The cap is flimsy and the product might make your bag a mess!
This face pack is beige in color (similar to multani mitti) and has a smooth, creamy texture. My fragrance is very similar to that of pure multani mitti (Fullers earth) too. The smell doesn’t bother my sensitive nose much.
After application, this mud face pack gets dried quickly and gets washed out easily with water. Make sure you don’t let it sit on your face more than 15 minutes as it is a mud pack.
After using this face pack, my skin feels smooth, soft, clean and little glow-y. It strips of all the oiliness and leaves my skin matte after usage. I love the matte effect it provides, only in summers. After a long tiring day, when I use this face pack, my skin feels cool, refreshed and radiant. It also helps with removing tan up to an average extent if used immediately after sun exposure.
One more thing.. You can substitute this mud face pack for multani mitti in your homemade face packs. I tried a DIY tan removal mango face pack recipe with this one and it turned out really great. It removed tan like anything and instantly added glow to my face.
Overall, this clarifying mud face pack from Himalaya Herbals is a good product for girls with oily to combination skin types as claimed by the company. If you have extremely dry skin then you must stay away from this product. It cannot be taken as a con because the brand doesn’t claim it.

MABH Rating: 3.5/5
Do I Recommend?:
Yes! I do recommend this face pack to oily skinned people out there. It is mild, cleanses effectively, leaves skin smooth, matte and bright. It helps controlling sun and works well to improve skin texture with regular usage. Moreover, if you find using plain multani mitti messy, this is a ready made remedy. (No mixing with water and stuff.. ugh!)
Would I Repurchase?:
Yes I will once it gets over. I don’t think I will be repurchasing it every time but I want this pack in stock to use it instead of my powdered fullers earth. It works much better. Though I have normal-oily skin, I wont dare to use this face pack in dry winters.
P.S: If you have dry skin but still want to try this face pack, then add two drops of olive oil to it.
