My Two Cents: Himalaya Herbals Neem Foaming Face Wash

Foam is a lovely, fun and effective way of cleansing our faces.

Himalaya Herbals Neem Foaming Face Wash's  formula is much gentler on the skin than facial washes I had been used to. It is soap-free and uses the power of natural ingredients. Neem has been used to treat acne for centuries. It is also known for its ability to keep skin elastic. It is also used as insect repellent, which is a real plus in our country's environment. Turmeric is a popular ingredient for beauty treatments as well. It has anti-aging and anti-microbial properties, and is also used for depilatory purposes. (I know someone who uses turmeric powder on cystic pimples.) The bottle also lists Vetiver as one of its main ingredients, but I think it's mostly for the fragrance.

Where to Buy: Watson's
Price: About PHP 140+ (Bought it on sale) for  150 ml of product.

- Effective. Did a great job of cleansing my face. It even washes away light makeup including non-waterproof mascara.
- Gentle. Doesn't dry out my skin, doesn't make me break out, and I love the soft and elastic feel of my skin after washing.
- Economical. One pump is enough to get the result I wrote about.
one pump gives this much product. lovely foam. so much fun to use.

- Scent is quite lovely.
- Price. Similarly priced as- if not more affordable than- other face washes in supermarkets.
- Widely available
- This product was not tested on animals.*

- Not ideal for travel. Some of the product got spilled when I brought this home. Turns out, the cap got a bit unscrewed and my other purchses got doused.
- Some of the ingredients listed might be a deal-breaker for some of you. (see photo)
- I can not vouch for this product being completely cruelty-free.**

Will I repurchase?
There are many other products (including the other types from Himalaya Herbals) that I want to try, but eventually, I might.

  7. Why the pump content look yellowish when it's actually green in the bottle. How about the consistency, is it watery or gel?
