Most of you who have been reading my blog for a while must be knowing how fond of Himalaya Herbals I am. But that does not mean that every product is a hit with me. The Himalaya Herbals Hydrating facewash Cream is one product which I simply detest. yes, that's the word for it. A couple of years ago, when I needed a facewash and had no time to go to the regular shops, I went to the chemists' which is in the first floor of my apartment. I saw this facewash and got hold of it. When I tried this, I was so disappointed!
A couple of months ago, I had purchased a mositurizer from Himalaya and I got this big tube as a freebie. For us, freebies are always welcome call me whatever you wish.
Price: 65 INR for 100 ml.
What the company claims? Directions and components
The facewash looks very beautiful. It's pearly white in color and smells mildly floral and beautiful. But your happiness would last up-til this only. It's the worst facewash in the world. I tried to lather it and it does not lather at all. If you are wondering that this is a 'good non-lathering' facewash, you are wrong. It does not clean any dirt or grime or any oil. Using this is almost equal to washing your face only with water but with the consolation that you are 'washing' your face with a 'facewash'.
On a better note, it brought back a sweet childhood memory. My grandfather, who passed away four years ago, used a kind of shaving soap ( yes, a kind of soap that that generation used). It had a peculiar fragrance which is very close to this. I liked it so much. The barber used to come for him and do his beard and hair. The smell reminds me of my grandfather and that makes me feel very good.
ok, no point in being sentimental.
1) Comes cheap.
2) Nice packaging.
3) nice fragrance.
4) Doesn't dry out the skin.
I could write an essay, but I'm sparing you the horror by only saying this is not a good product, the worst facewash which does not do anything at all, there is no point in purchasing this and I see no point why Himalaya Herbals is selling this at all.
Do I recommend?
It's not hard to guess. "NO"
Shall I repurchase? Not at all. Next time, if this comes as a freebie, I would use this up as a body-wash ( a non lathering and non-cleansing one).
Have you used this? What's your opinion? Are you going to try this?
