Skincare Monday: Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack Review

Hey Everyone!
Today in ‘Skincare Monday’ feature I’ll be reviewing Himalaya purifying neem face pack for normal to oily skin, which I’ve been repurchasing for while now!
Price: Rs. 65 for 50g

  • For normal to oily skin
  • Deep cleanses & purifies or clear, problem-free skin
  • Contains neem and turmeric
  • Key ingredients:
  • Fuller’s earth, neem & turmeric.

Apply evenly over cleansed face and neck, avoiding the area around the eyes. Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes. Remove with a wet sponge and wash with cool water. Use once or twice a week. Do not apply on broken or inflamed skin.

May cause tingling sensation due to herbal active ingredients, which is normal.

My Take on Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack:

Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack comes in white tube packaging with green flip top cap. The packaging is very travel friendly and I always prefer tube packaging. The cap accumulates some dried product over time which is a common problem with this packaging. The pack is in dark green color and it smells full of neem completely. However the fragrance and the color of the product sounds pure ayurvedic/herbal which not- so attractive.

Pack has runny cream base and has grainy texture with small particles. When I first used the pack, it tingles but it is completely says the packaging. The pack dries so fast within ten minutes as applied in a thin layer. It takes 20 to 25 minutes to dry if it applied as a thick layer. The pack runs off with the water easily and after the pack my skin is clean with a bit of natural glow. The pack controls oiliness and reduces the pimples to an extent on the regular use. To be straight, the pack dry out up the pimples and refine the skin bit.

Sometimes I wash the pack late than actual time and it gives dry patches. So be sure you wash it off soon within 15 to 10 minutes. It is a must-have for oily and acne prone skin. This is my second tube and one tube comes for a month or so.

Pros of Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack:
  • Availability
  • Affordable price
  • Refine the skin tone and keeps it clean
  • Controls the oiliness and existing pimples
  • Best product for oily/acne skin
  • Sturdy packaging and travel friendly

Cons of Himalaya Purifying Neem Pack:
  • Does give dry patches if you let the pack stay for long
  • Might not be so effective on heavy acne problems

Overall Verdict:

Himalaya Purifying Neem face pack is must-have product in your beauty cabinet. It helps to purify the skin and helps to keep it healthy.  I highly recommend this pack to oily skin for all seasons.
