The world of skincare and worries that come along with it may be vast but pimples continue to be one of the most searched-about skin problems. The reason for the breakouts may be a cocktail of hormones, skipping makeup removal or something else but beauty products to zap them away only keep rising in relevance. The Himalaya Purifying Neem face wash has been a go-to skincare product for acne-ridden faces for years. NDTV Swirlster decided to see why that is the case with an in-depth review and swatches for the face wash for pimples and acne.
Packaging Of The Face Wash And Soap
The face wash comes in a soft transparent plastic tube and is available in multiple sizes. It's a great option for users who want to try the product or loyalists who require a larger size. Ours in question contains 150ml of product and has a green plastic cap. This makes for a stable stand for the product to be placed on any surface and you can clearly see how much of it is used from the exterior. The product inside is transparent green in colour and has a gel-like consistency. It costs approximately Rs 155.
The soap comes in a cardboard container with the bar securely wrapped in plastic inside so that moisture doesn't affect it. It is green in colour and has a herbal scent. It costs approximately Rs 270 for a pack of 6 soaps.
Feel And Usage Of The Face Wash And Soap
The scent of the product is distinctively herbal, which one will get instantly when you open the tube. It is quite gentle, pleasant and not overpowering at all when you use it. The gel formula is applies easily to the skin and lathers well with only a little water. It is free from soap, parabens, SLS and phthalates. Especially if you have oily skin, the face wash cleanses deeply to remove all traces of oil, dirt or makeup so that the face has a clean feel post washing it. At the same time, it doesn't leave the skin feeling dried out once you use it. The soap cleanses the body thoroughly and its herbal scent feels refreshing while bathing. The neem and turmeric within the formula are specifically meant to target pimples and prevent them from cropping up; not any specific skin type, making it a versatile choice. This is a result that can be seen with long term usage, definitely not in the span of a couple of days or weeks even.
What Swirlster Says
There's a reason this skincare product enjoys peak popularity and oily skin which is prone to pimples can benefit from it greatly.
