A few weeks ago, I got a chance to join the Butterfly Project- Beauty Bloggers – Himalaya Product Sharing Session. I am well aware of Himalaya products and a great fan of the brand’s Conditioner. If you have never heard of it, Himalaya Herbals is a range of natural, effective and safe products that use special herbs carefully selected from nature. I love products which contain herbal ingredients and when I found out that Himalaya Neem Face Pack contains Neem, I really couldn’t wait to try it when I got it.
First of all, you might be wondering what is Neem… Well, Neem (Azadirachta indic a) is an Indian lilac tree from the mahogany family. I remember when I was young, I had chicken pox, so my parents asked me to sleep on a white sheet with neem leaves on it coz the leaves are known to treat chicken pox. In fact, Indians love to plant a neem tree outside their house because it is known to keep diseases away. In fact, every part of the neem tree is very useful for various things.
So,I knew a face pack that contains neem, definitely would do good to my face. The Neem Face Pack which also contains turmeric and Fuller’s Earth helps to clean clogged pores, rejuvenates and firms up your skin. The antibacterial properties in Neem and turmeric helps eliminate acne that causing bacteria while Fuller’s Earth cools and soothes the skin. It is suitable for normal to oily skin.
At first, when I squeezed some pack on my hand, my first thought was, ‘It look similar to GlamGlow’ which is a dark paste. The reason why the paste is dark in colour because of the ‘neem’. Caution : Please shake the tube well before pumping out the paste because it might come out a little watery if you don’t shake it first. I love the smell of the pack but if you are someone who has sensitive nose, the smell can be overwhelming. Even after removing the pack off my face, the fragrance smell was still there on my skin. It is quite rejuvenating actually.
Directions : Apply evenly over cleansed face and neck, avoiding the area around the eyes. I just put on a very thin layer and I had apply it really quick because unlike other masks or packs, this one tends to dry really fast. After applying, allow to dry for 10 minutes, then you can remove with a wet sponge and wash with cool water. It is best if you remove it using a wet sponge. I didn’t have a wet sponge, so I just used a clean wet towel to remove the pack. Make sure you rub the towel/sponge gently when removing the pack, you don’t want to cause saggy skin later 😛 It is suggested that you use the mask twice a week but I have a sensitive and dry skin, so using it once a week is good enough for me.
I felt my skin was a lot smoother and I felt that my moisturiser absorbed better after applying Neem Face Pack. I also love the fact that the face pack fragrance smell was still there and it was really nice to walk around with the nice smell… hahaha… I realised that my pores are getting smaller too. If you are wondering, how long the product will last, it is expected to last about 6 months (expiry date from the date of opening).
