Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash

I received a lot of new products in the mail this month and I have to take a few days off in covering events to test and write about them. So, forgive me if I am flooding your feed with reviews :)

One of the packages I received is from Himalaya Herbals. I was actually a bit hesitant to try these products because I have such sensitive skin that easily breaks out. Plus, reviewing a product takes time, effort and a lot (more) time in taking pictures and monitoring the results. I had to push back, but the team from Himalaya Herbals is nice enough to send the products in exchange for a feature. But, I felt the need to write a short review of one of the products because I am quite satisfied with it. TENEN!!!

The other day, I ran out of soap that I regularly use that was recommended to me by Bioessence (where I have my regular skin care treatment). I was lazy to visit the clinic (I actually missed my monthly facial schedule)... and that's when the Himalaya Herbals came in to the rescue. I checked the packages that were sent to me by different brands. I admit that I use different facial wash but I always go back to the one that was recommended for my skin. This time, I tried the Purifying Neem Face Wash

The fine print :)

Before I put anything in my face, I had to know the brand. Himalaya Herbals is a family owned business that started in 1930. It reached the Philippine shores in July 2013 and is now present in 85 countries across the globe.  Himalaya Herbals have a range of ‘head to heel’ herbal healthcare and personal care products. The range comprises of over 300 products in Personal Care and Pharmaceutical category which contains 100% Herbal Actives. The legacy of researching nature forms the foundation of Himalaya Herbals operations

What is a neem? It is a kind of plant which oil is used as antimicrobial for wounds.  For acne, Neem tackles bacteria from the root and prevents the recurrence of pimples and blemishes.

My Skin Condition:

What I like about the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash
I love the gel consistency of the facial wash.
I love that it comes in travel-size package. Easy to bring anywhere.
It is not too perfumed.
It is super affordable at Php 129 for 100 ml. 
It doesn't contain harmful chemicals.

What I don't like about the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash

Results Review:
 It is thick and is not very "soapy". I feel that it cleanses my skin deeper while I gently massage in my face unlike other facial washes that are just too soapy because of the emulsifying property. After I washed my face with it, my skin felt tight, clean and smoother. It is non-drying unlike other facial wash that I have tried.  I am not planning to write a review of this product, but I am very happy with this new discovery, so here I am sharing with you all! I still have a couple of new products from Himalaya Herbals to try.. watch out for the review (or maybe I would share some via giveaway) :)
