Himalaya Face Packs - Summer Skincare Essentials

Can the weather go any more worse than this?? It's like she (yes, 'she') can't make up her mind!! Presently it's a cross between summers and monsoons. My skin type is usually combinational. However, due to the humidity and the heat I'm an oily mess.  

I'm totally and completely digging all the Himalaya products this season. I especially love these 2 face packs dearly! And they've been my savior this summer.

Affordable and Effective. What more can I ask for?

Himalaya Herbals purifying Neem Pack - for normal to oily skin 

What it does:
Himalaya's Purifying Neem Pack brings together the goodness of Neem, Fuller's Earth and Turmeric, which work together to regulate excess oil secretion, clean clogged pores and prevent the recurrence of pimples.
Key ingredients:
  • Neem Oil and Neem leaves are excellent skin care ingredients. The oil relieves dry skin and soothes itchiness, redness and irritation. It also improves general skin health and immunity, combating bacterial infections such as acne, boils and ulcers.
    Turmeric has been used as an antiseptic for centuries. The herb also has strong anti-inflammatory properties which soothe your skin gently. It also makes your skin soft and supple.
  • Fuller's Earth is primarily used to lighten the skin. It has cooling and anti-inflammatory properties that remove deep-seated dirt and skin pollutants.
Cleanse the face and neck. Apply Purifying Neem Pack evenly all over the face and neck, avoiding the area around the eyes and mouth. Let the mask dry for 10-15 minutes and remove with a wet sponge or towel. Rinse with cool water. For optimal results, use once a week.
Best for oily and pimple-prone skin.

It has a tingling effect once applied. Nothing alarming though.
It cleanses my skin squeaky clean and does exactly what it claims.
Can't guarantee that this product completely prevents acne or pimples from recurring but it does control it to large extent. My skin feels much healthier and fresh after use.

The scent is very 'herbal-y'. Not a fan of it BUT....it's the best thing I've come across so no I'm not complaining.

It also contains parabens. So a loud shout to those who care for it.
Price: Rs.130/- for 100gms
Himalaya Herbals Oil Clear Mud Face Pack - for combination to oily skin

It is enriched with Walnut, which removes blackheads and dead cells, Fuller's Earth, which removes deep-seated impurities. Mineral Clay improves circulation and makes skin soft and tender.

  • Walnut removes dirt, blackheads and dead cells. 
  • Khus-Khus cleans and tones the facial skin.

 Again does what it claims. However, I'd rather skip this pack during winters since it makes my skin pretty dry. But for summers it is god sent!!
Those who have dry skin, this may not be ideal for you, but for combinational and oily skins, this is a must try!
