Himalaya is a brand that you are all aware of already. This is the first brand that I started using when I first had pimples. I still remember the day I first found my teenage pimple and went to a medical store and they suggested me Himalaya Neem Face Wash as good medicine for pimple.

LOL… Like seriously? People called it medicine back then

Anyway, now that we are grown up and we can probably choose the best out of those suggested ones by the elders. We know what suits our skin best. But we also don’t know the fact of using an anti-acne product. What I mean to say is do we really go through the ingredients list before buying an anti-acne product? Even if some does, but how many exactly know which ingredients work best for treating acne or pimples?

Many of you are thinking NO! Right?

So today I will be sharing some of my experiences regarding the Himalaya Neem Face Wash. I have been randomly using this one because I find it handy almost everywhere, be it in my home or when I am travelling somewhere and forgot to take my facewash that I mostly use. Because you know we can get it from any store nearby and also it’s really very cheap.

So here is some of the facts that you might not know about this Face Wash and should always check before reaching this product. So let’s jump in-

Paraben & Sulfate free

Yes ! You heard it absolutely right. Himalaya Neem face wash is free from Paraben & harmful SLS that are mostly found in face washes for its super lathering power. However, it has ALS (Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate) which is a pretty common cleansing agent that is derived from coconut or palm kernel oil.

It’s universally used for its mild foaming abilities that help to create a creamy lather while washing with water. It is chemically closely related to the sulfate group but the Ammonium part makes it milder.

Fights Occasional Acne

Have you heard about the Occasional Acne before? At least I didn’t until I researched a lot about this product and after using it for a few years with my hard-earned experience. It sounds weird but it’s true that the Himalaya Neem face wash is hardly effective for acne-prone skin. However, if you’re using this continuously, and some sudden acne pops up then it helps to fight back.

Goodness of AHA

Yes, I’m not kidding I swear! When I saw this I couldn’t believe my eyes too but it consists of Citric acid which technically acts as an AHA, derived from citrus fruits. Thus it helps to maintain the pH balance of the skin which is unbelievable right?

Use of Phenoxyethanol

Many of you might not be aware of this composition but let me explain a bit. Basically, Phenoxyethanol works as a stabilizer in almost every skincare/haircare products and perfumes preservative to prevent products from losing their effectiveness or spoiling.  In Himalaya Neem face wash, it’s been combined with another chemical, to increase its antibacterial properties that are effective at reducing acne and zits.

Not effective in controlling excessive sebum/oil

This point might disappoint some of you but to be honest Himalaya Neem face wash doesn’t really effective in controlling excessive sebum/oil. However, you can feel less oil once after using this but your skin might end up producing that disastrous oil after a few hours (which was really disappointing for me)

Overall, the face wash is pretty good as it treats mild oil production, removing dirt from the skin, and giving a refreshing feeling. Also, not to forget that it silently delivers a kind of chemical exfoliation (so trending these days in the skincare game) to the skin.

I still remember when I first saw the newly launched Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask on their website and couldn’t wait any further to grab it. I was insanely looking for a good Vitamin C enrich product to incorporate in my skincare regimen for so long. Luckily I got my hand on this one and nothing can be more coincidental than getting that desired item from one of my preferred brands . So in this post, I will be talking about the Vitamin C sleeping mask and my experience using the product.

Product Description

Price & Quantity

599 INR for 100 gm

Skin Type

All skin types including Sensitive skin (which is an added advantage)

Texture

Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask comes in a transparent foam like soft and frothy texture. I just loved the texture since I opened the jar. Smells hevenly and after applying on skin it feels like a mist on face. It claims to contain Vitamin C and Aloe Vera Extract which supply moisture to the skin and replenish Lost Radiance. It also helps to restore skin elasticity, reducing any early signs of Aging, maintains tones and strengthens the skin cells.

Ingredients

My experience using the Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask

The packaging is very basic like the other Mamaearth products that come with a white frosted pastic jar with a screw lid. I believe it helps the product to get contaminated with any external fungal reaction as you can tighten the cap as necessary. It also comes with a spatula which is so cute and make the application even much easier.

The Vitamin C mask has a frothy texture which I found really different and unique. Trust on me, you will also surprise too to see its texture. It has a clear aqua gel consistency and a soothing aroma (which I truly fell in love with already). As the name suggests, it is specifically for night time, before sleeping/going to bed. So that the product can sit and work on the skin overnight.

There are no other chemical listed on the ingredients list apart from the main ingredients Aqua, Aloe vera juice, Vitamin C and some preservatives to maintain the shelf life. Also to be noted, natural ingredients might trigger existing allergies, so do a patch test always if you are someone with common allergic problems.

How I use it

I use Vitamin C Mask as a last step of my night time routine, and this pack is so light and watery that it takes time to set into the skin. I don’t know why to use it for only night time, when one can get the benefit from using them in the morning also. Because some research also says that Vitamin C products work best when applied in the morning before heading out for the day, because UV radiation is generally high that time.

Also it sets like spraying mist on skin and a very slight cooling effect right after the application. I love the way this mask deeply nourishes my skin and makes it look plump the next morning. Initially I thought how it would work on my sensitive skin but (touch wood) I haven’t experienced anything discomforting till now.

Vitamin C sleeping mask is always a great way to combat any damaged skin from UV radiation, free radicals and dark spots and help to bring back the natural glow and illumination. Have been using from quite a few days now and a big thumbs up for this product from my side. Do let me know which Vitamin C skincare are you following lately.
