Hi, everybody! The brand organized a bloggers’ event in Chennai last month (at Express Avenue) for their #ChennaiPonnu campaign that promotes the Himalaya Herbals Neem Facial Kit. Though I was invited, I sadly couldn’t make it to the event since I had a family wedding reception to attend!
Nevertheless, I received this lovely hamper from the brand! I’ll be unboxing it and penning down my views about the campaign today! I shall be sharing my (quick) views on the products as well.
UNBOXING the Hamper!
The hamper that was sent to me consists of the highly raved Himalaya Herbals Neem Facial Kit, a nice white tee and a keychain!
Face wash, face pack and face scrub from their purifying neem range are the contents of the kit. It is priced at Rs.180 only, which I think is very affordable!
I really liked the theme of this campaign since it’s aimed at Chennai women. It talks about the versatility about the city and how the women here are modern yet traditional! The concept is appreciable. You can watch their video here!
Being born and brought up in Chennai, I find myself very much connected to the city! Like any other person, I obviously have my own set of likes and dislikes about the place but I must admit this city has given me SO much to experience! The authentic south Indian food at Ratna Cafe to the early morning Marina walk, everything is a bliss – except for the W.E.A.T.H.E.R! (maybe add in pollution as well since our place is densely populated)
Summer is almost unbearable here. That is when I look out for gentle, yet effective products that can cater the needs of my skin. Himalaya Herbals is one brand that comes up with brilliant skincare essentials at very affordable prices! Let me share my quick review on the neem facial kit today!
Himalaya Herbals Neem Facial Kit – Do Facial at Home
Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Wash | Rs.60 for 50 ml: It is a gel based face wash which has a subtle leafy green tint! I love the consistency – it’s neither too thick nor too watery, it has a great slip. I massage it over my facial skin and rinse it off with cold water. This face wash has a mild herbal scent and it prevents pimples VERY effectively! Whenever I use this, I see my pimples/heat bumps shrink the very next day. No wonder this is one of the best face cleansers available in India and it is HG for many!
Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Scrub | Rs.70 for 50 g: This has to be used after cleansing your face with the face wash. The scrub is surprisingly cream based and it has minute green-brown particles to scrub away the dead skin! It instantly makes my skin smooth and it tames the rough patches. Though the base is creamy, it doesn’t leave my skin oily – which is a good thing in this scorching summer!
Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Pack | Rs.70 for 50 g: Again, this is another raved product from their range of skincare goodies! This pack is mud-based and it really heals your skin with continuous usage. It feels cool on my skin and it reduces the acne breakout up to a great extent. When paired up with the face wash and the scrub from the same range, it works even better! And this completes my quick at-home neem facial!
Note: None of these products made my skin oily. They actually helped to clear up the excessive oiliness. However, a moisturizer is highly recommended post usage to avoid dryness (especially if your skin is naturally dry).
I think this neem facial kit will last me for 10-15 facials which is awesome for the price! I’d highly recommend this product to everyone! It’s definitely one of the best to prevent/tackle pimples.
