For some reason or rather for reasons I can't reveal, my skin raptured. Yes!! Literally with big balls of fire. While I sincerely wish the "ugly unknown truth" must be spoken about, so it is as a beauty blogger that can't be coughed out. But confirmed the acne wrecked the glory, pride and joy of my complexion, my emotions were truly hay-wired. How not to?? Acne free it has been for as long I can remember until this major let down, I thought I knew it all about caring for the skin but I suppose "expecting the unexpected" wasn't that bad as my common sense still prevailed. Upon putting aside all the oil based products as not to aggravate the oil glands and amidst considering a suitable face wash, Himalaya products arrived (apricot scrub and nourishing cream honey wash)
The first product I reached out to was this neem face wash - well, neem to promote healthy and clear skin and turmeric to eliminate acne bacteria to calm, soothe and cool off my face. And proven to be effective, this gentle wash was truly gentle on my skin without stripping the natural oil and the spots were gone within a week. Thus, more must be said about this natural wash packed in a plastic tube with a small screw cap. Light weight, soap free and with a translucent consistency, it is like a gel with a refreshing herbal scent. The scent is just so amazing that each and every time before lathering with water, a whiff is a must.
Unlike other conventional wash, this wash doesn't produce the creamy foamy lather. Still, a tiny amount is enough including for the neck. The wash doesn't itch neither does it feel tight nor clogs up the pores and ---- assured leaves the skin clean, soft and smooth after washing and patting dry.
I admit at first I was a little apprehensive as the wash is recommended for normal to oily skin, Yet it settled well on my combination-sensitive skin, but soon I have to cut down to using once a day as the wash is rather on a dry side. Nevertheless, I am satisfied that Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash actually cleared up my skin.
