How is the spring treating you all? well! it might be the season of spring but its hot already and summer is just around the corner ;P And in Summers the best skin care which is easily available and comes easy on pocket is Face Mask or Face Pack! Be it oily skin, sun tanned skin, dry skin or combination skin, there is one for all of them. I myself try a lot of face masks, sheet masks or DIY masks (Read more) on my oily to combination skin. And one brand that always impress me with their quality and the super affordable range is “Himalaya Herbals”.
So today i am going to review three of their most loved face masks which are:
Himalaya herbals oil clear mud face pack.
Himalaya herbals kesar face pack.
Himalya herbals purifying neem face pack.
They all come in a plastic squeeze tube packaging with a green plastic cap. The packaging is quite sturdy and the cap clicks shut which makes them travel friendly and easy to use. The tube is to be squeezed to take the product out as per the quantity needed. I really like tube packaging over a box one as it is more hygienic and easy to use. Just take the desired quantity out and apply evenly on the face and neck. It dries completely in 15 minutes which is when it has to be removed with a wet sponge or with just a normal wash.
So let’s get started with the review!
Oil Clear Mud Face Pack:
Price: Rs. 130/ for 100 gms. Available @amazon for Rs. 130
Product claims: 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. Key ingredients: 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.
Its a ready to use mud face mask which is yellowish-brown in color and slight grainy in texture. It smells mud i.e Fullers Earth and i love the earthy smell 🙂 It has a runny consistency, But still is very easy to apply and spreads evenly on the face without dropping out. You can use a brush or just fingers to apply it evenly on to the face and neck. I take generous amount of this face pack and apply all over my face and neck area. It gives a little tingling sensation after application which i think because they are herbal and have anti-acne properties. It gets dried completely in 15 minutes after which it needs to be washed with normal water. It does clean all the oil and grime from the face and leaves it refreshed and oil free . The skin feels soft, smooth and free from any oil completely. Using it once a week gives me a smooth, soft oil free skin which i think also controls my breakouts as well. It does not help much on the pimples or acne bumps but then its not meant for acne only. I think this is one of the best oil clear face packs i have tried so far as i could see how clean and refreshed my skin felt after trying this face pack.
I would highly recommend it to all who have oily and combination skin. Dry skin might feel a little dry after using this face pack but a moisturizer could surely help. Easy availability and affordable price makes it a great buy 🙂 I highly recommend this deep cleansing oil clear mud face pack 😀
Fairness Kesar Face Pack:
Price: Rs. 130/ Available @amazon for Rs. 117
Product Claims: Himalaya’s Fairness Face Pack is a unique natural formulation that evens out skin tone for a fairer you! Key Ingredients:Turmeric, Walnut, Indian Aloe and Saffron rejuvenate and cleanse your skin of impurities, to reveal a natural glow. Walnut and Indian Aloe heals skin and removes blackheads. Turmeric and Saffron enhances your skin’s complexion and elasticity. Cinnablock™, our patented herbal sunblock, protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Turmeric has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe your skin gently. The herb helps to even out your skin tone and complexion Aloe softens and hydrates your skin too. Saffron lightens skin, clears spots, enhances complexion and gives the skin an even tone.
A ready to use face mask which contains walnut, aloevera, saffron and turmeric which clears and lightens skin tone with enhancing natural complexion. I must say it definitly proves what it claims to be 🙂 It smells of Saffron which is really refreshing and is light yellowish in color. The texture is creamy, semi thick and is very easy to apply and spreads evenly on the face. I apply this face pack after cleansing my face with a mild oil free face wash. It takes 15-20 minutes to be completely dry and then i wash it off with normal water. It is easy to clean and does not leave any residue behind. It does dry out my oily skin a little bit so i follow it with a hydrating moisturizer. And after using it for over a month i could definitely say that is does lightens the skin and evens out complexion. My skin feels soft, smooth and visibly glowing after using this face pack. Though that glow does not stay for long but a continuous usage is a must for any skin product so i do not complain. It thoroughly cleanses out my skin and makes it soft, supple and smooth. It won’t alter the natural complexion or will make it instantly fairer but it surely helps in removing sun-tan and evens out the skin tone.
A must try face pack for soft, smooth and glowing skin. Do try for a clean, refreshed and glowing look. I higly recommend 😀
Purifying Neem Face Pack:
Price: Rs. 130/ Available @amzon for Rs. 130
Product Claims: Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Pack brings together the goodness of Neem, Fuller’s Earth and Turmeric, which work together to regulate excess oil secretion, clean clogged pores and prevent the recurrence of pimples. Key ingredients: Neem Oil and Neem leaves are excellent skin care ingredients. The oil relieves dry skin and soothes itchiness, redness and irritation. It also improves general skin health and immunity, combating bacterial infections such as acne, boils and ulcers. Fuller’s Earth is primarily used to lighten the skin. It has cooling and anti-inflammatory properties that remove deep-seated dirt and skin pollutants.
Review: A muddy green color face pack with a gritty texture, which smells of neem and is not very pleasent. I don’t like the smell as it is a bit strong and irritating for me but as its neem and natural so i bear it happily. The texture is thick, smooth and a little gritty because of the presence of fuller’s earth. I apply the face pack generously all over my face and neck. As it runs a little thick, you might need to adjust the consistency by adding a little water. I just cleanse my face and apply it directly on my wet skin. It gives a tingling sensation right after application but disappears in 2-3 minutes. It takes 20 minutes to be completely dried which is when i remove it off using normal water. The gritty texture helps in exfoliation and cleans my oily skin well without leaving it dry . I can see huge improvement on my breakouts and acne when i use it regularly. It also helps in shrinking my pimples and acne bumps and keeps the skin oil free. I love this deep cleaning face pack which works wonders on oily skin and makes it look soft, hydrated and pimple free 🙂
A must have face pack for everyone especially oily skin or combination skin. More so if you have acne or breakouts often. It will actually work on the pimples your skin have and will help prevent the new ones from popping out. Go get it for a clean, oil free and no-acne skin! I highly highly recommend 😀
Conclusion: These face packs are easily available and super affordable. The quantity and quality in this price range, makes them a must buy :). The natural ingredients work wonders on the skin without making it extra dry. The skin does feel soft, smooth and clean after every usage. There are no harsh chemicals used and all the products are completely herbal and suit every skin type and tones. The skin remains problem free and even toned after continuous usage. Do try them once for the effective results they provide! I highly recommend 🙂
