Today I’m reviewing the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack. It’s one of the good drugstore face packs that I’ve tried. Read on to know why.
About Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack:
Price: Rs. 65 for 50g
Packaging: Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack comes in an opaque white squeezy tube, with a green flip-top cap. The cap is sturdy too, and shuts properly, so the tube is travel friendly.
Ingredients: Key ingredients: Fuller’s earth, Neem, Turmeric. Other ingredients:
Instructions: Refer second picture above
Consistency/ texture: The Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack is a dark, moss-green coloured, clay based face pack, with small exfoliating granules. I believe those are neem chhal powder (bark powder), not too sure though (not mentioned on the pack). The pack dries to a lighter colour.

Fragrance: Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack has a strong Neem and Turmeric smell to it. I can bear with it, but if you have a very sensitive nose, you may not like it. The small is not a pleasant one, I must warn you! Its very ayurvedic-recipe type, but that’s what it is.
My experience with Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack: I use this pack once in a week. It has this scrub-cum-pack texture, so I usually use this mid-week, when I need dome mild scrubbing along with a pack. I apply this on the face, scrub using gentle circular motions for 1-2 minutes, and then I leave it to dry for 15 minutes, after which I wash it off. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean, and refreshed. But it’s not an extra-ordinary face pack which will leave you with glowing skin, reduction in marks, oil control, etc. It’s just a good, cleansing pack!
· Cleanses skin well
· Removes oil, dirt, etc.
· Easily available, easy to carry
· Claims to be herbal, but has parabens ;-(
· Does not impart glow to the face, or any other effects
Verdict: It’s good for its price, so it gets a thumbs-up from my side.
