Browsing

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.

OMG! That pimple again!

Ohh no! Those zits are showing up again!

Uughrrr can’t tolerate this oil on my face anymore!!

Are you the person complaining about such problems on a regular basis? I know many of us are having these issues since our childhood and unfortunately still continue to have the same. But there is nowhere we can run after in general. We are blessed with a skin that produces excessive oil no matter what we actually struggle in our real day to day life. It irritates! It stings! But this is what our skin is actually.

So instead of hating this, blaming it on our fate to have oily skin (I believe many do so), we should be opting for the right kind of face washes to eliminate that excessive oil. If oily skin is not treated properly or it is ignored, then it can cause occasional pimples/acne/zits. So, here I am listing down the top 5 effective yet budget-friendly face washes especially for oily skin that you can totally rely on-

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser

This one is the most hyped, clinically proven, non-cosmedogenic, oil-free face wash available in the Indian market. Not only that, it claims to remove micropollutant PM 2.5 which trigger all kind of skin problems be it pimples, skin aging, irritation, breakouts, etc. Enriched with 33% glycerine, Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser also locks the skin’s natural moisture while cleansing deep into the skin.

Himalaya Herbals Oil Clear Lemon Foaming Face Wash

If you ask me what is the one thing that I love in particular about this face wash then I would say its cooling and energizing effect. It is enriched with Lemon, an astringent and cooling agent, and Honey, which has natural, deep cleansing properties. It leaves skin fresh with the very first use without feeling dry and stretched.

Nykaa Tea Tree & Neem Purifying Face Wash

Now this one comes really clean and prominent in terms of its ingredients. People with oily or combination skin can definitely give this a try as it helps to eliminate oil and dirt from the skin. It is also gentle on the skin.

NIVEA Milk Delights Face Wash (Besan)

NIVEA Milk Delights with Fine Gram Flour help to remove excess oil from the skin. This one is one of my personal favorites as it focuses on the benefits of natural ingredients. The milk acts as a natural cleanser and fine gram flour helps to prevent stickiness by removing the excess oil from the skin, thus making you feel really good in just one use.

Lotus Herbals Tea tree & Cinnamon Oil Control Face Wash

Now this one targets the main concern and the best part is it is specially formulated for oily skin. It contains Tea Tree Oil, Cinnamon, and Oak Bark extracts which remove excess oil from the skin surface while regulating the Sebum (Oil) production in the skin.

These are some of my favorites and some are the best sellers in terms of customer rating. However, these are especially proved to be best and effective for oil control but hardly said to work on existing or recurrent pimples. So, if you are someone with severe pimple problems already then I would suggest you check with a dermatologist immediately and treat your problem accordingly.
