Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub Review

Hello friends!!!

I found this scrub on my cousin’s dressing table. From many days I am using Kilmora Apricot Scrub (approx 2 years) and earlier to that Everyuth walnut scrub. I never tried anything except those scrubs so I thought to give it a try. Here is my review about it.

Product claims: Specially formulated to give you clear, problem-free skin, this scrub works with a dual exfoliation and purifying action. Neem, well-known for its purifying and antibacterial properties, kills problem-causing bacteria. Combined with exfoliating Apricot granules, it gently scrubs away blackheads, dead skin cells and embedded impurities, leaving your skin, soft, clear, refreshed and problem-free.

Ingredients: Neem, Apricot, Turmeric.

Inacitves: MethylparabenIP, Propylparaben, IP, phenoxyethanol IP.

Price: 130 Rs

Wt: 100 gm

Online availability: It is available in various stores like Flipkart, Amazon, Purplle, Himalayastore, Nykaa, Snapdeal.

Shelf life: 36 months or 3 years.

Directions for Use: Apply in a circular motion on the face and neck. Rinse with water and pat dry. Use at least once a week for clear, acne-free skin.

Packaging: The packaging consists of white and green colour. The base of tube is white and imprint is of green colour with even printed stuff on it. Front consist of product’s name, Himalaya’s logo, Neem leaves etc. At flip side you can see ingredients list, products claim, price, quantity, manufacturer details etc. It has a dark green colour flip cap which sound tik tik on snapping it.

My opinion about this Product: When it comes to scrubbing, so I find Apricot scrubs more effective than Walnut scrubs. Himalaya claimed that scrub contains that scrub contains Apricot so I thought to give it a try. Pressing tube gives you white coloured scrub which consists of beads of two different colours, one green and other orange coloured. I feel green is of Neem and orange is of Apricot. The best thing about this scrub is that it is combination of face wash & scrub which makes it more convenient to use. This is effective in it’s work and more effective in removing blackheads and dead skin.

What I like about this product….

1. Combination of face wash & scrub.
2. Effective in removing blackheads.
3. Easily available in markets.
4. Economical (as most of the Himalaya products are.)
5. It has goodness of Apricots along with Neem.
6. It is suitable for normal & oily skinn.

What I do not like about this product….

1.Contains parabens.
2. Why they have mentioned Turmeric in ingredients list.
