Himalaya Neem Foaming Face Wash - A review

Today I will be reviewing –Himalaya Neem Foaming face wash. I had used Himalaya neem face wash before. This foaming face wash is something new for me. 

What the product claims:
Unlike soap, neem foaming face wash does not leave your face feeling dry and stretched. Its gentle blend of herbs cleanses your skin deeply by removing impurities and excess oil. Neem, well known for its antibacterial properties, kills problem causing bacteria. Combined with turmeric, it effectively controls acne and pimples. As a result, u feel refreshed, your skin looks clear soft and supple.

Price and Quantity:  195 rupees for 150 ml

Moisten face. Apply and massage gently. Wash off and pat dry.

Each ml contains: exts, nimba 50 mg. haridra 5mg , ushira 5 mg.
Natural herbal ingredients may tend to change color over time. However the product efficacy remains unchanged.

Let’s look at the benefits each ingredients have: ( got it from wikipedia n other sites)

Neem has traditionally been used to maintain a healthy skin, flawless complexion and also to keep skin related diseases and problems at bay. The blood purifying properties found in active neem compounds help to maintain youthful and healthy skin. Skin Disorders treated by Neem Products include Rashes, Eczema, Ringworm, Scabies, Acne , Pimples and Blemishes.

Turmeric paste is traditionally used by Indian women to keep them free of superfluous hair and as an antimicrobial. Turmeric paste, as part of both home remedies and Ayurveda, is also said to improve the skin and is touted as an anti-aging agent. Some may use turmeric in skin creams as an antiseptic agent for cuts, burns and bruises.

Ushira is one of the best refrigerant herbs that cools and calms the entire body and mind. The paste of ushira and sandal wood is applied on skin, in burning sensation. In prickly heat, the paste of ushira, coriander fruit and musta is applied with benefit. The paste of ushira roots is applied by itself to alleviate the burning sensation, excessive sweating and foul body smell. It is also beneficial in various skin ailments to improve the complexion of the skin.

Look at the product:

This product comes in a sturdy plastic cylindrical transparent bottle with green colored liquid in it. It has a transparent cap which comes off to reveal a white pump which dispenses the product. The product has new innovative pump which pumps liquid and air simultaneously through a tiny nozzle. This causes the liquid product to turn into foam. Enough of rocket science!

My view on the product: 

The product lives upto the claim of controlling acne and pimples.  I particularly like Himalaya Brand face washes because they are mild and do not contain harsh chemicals. This face wash is soap- free which is another plus point.
The foam it dispenses is enough for entire face and is very light. It effectively deep cleanses the face and doesn’t dry out your skin. It is also successful at keeping your face oil- free for 2 hours max.
A foamy light face wash ready to use is a boon for us lazy people out there.
Another thing I love about this face wash is the fragrance. It is very herbal- like and pleasant. The smell won’t over power your senses.
This product is travel- friendly since the cap stays tightly secured during your holiday trips. It is not suitable to carry it out handbags – will be too bulky for that.
The product, however, did not get rid of the whiteheads I have. It is also a bit pricey. 
Love it or chuck it ?
Love it - yes !  I will definitely pick up this product again ...  :)
