Himalaya Herbals Gentle Face Wash Cream

After finishing my Gentle Face Wash Gel and Purifying Neem Face Wash Gel, I decided to buy the other variant: Himalaya Gentle Face Wash Cream which is meant to normal or dry skin. This is the product description:

“Himalaya Herbal's Gentle Face Wash Cream is a soap-free daily use face wash to cleanse and refresh your skin. This is a gentle face wash that nourishes and moisturizes your skin while cleansing it. Unlike soaps, Gentle Face Wash Cream does not leave the skin dry and feeling stretched. Enriched with Aloe vera that nourishes, and moisturizes and Cucumber that cools and soothes the skin, it leaves your skin soft, supple and refreshed.”

Unlike the two other variants, this one is hardly foam. The texture is creamy, almost similar to face cream. I think it is oil-based formula. The cream is pink and has a strong floral scent which smells “oily” for me.

Active ingredients

  • Cucumis sativus (Cucumber, Trapusha) : Refreshing and toning properties are beneficial as a Face Wash after exposure to environmental extremes and pollutants.
  • Aloe vera (Barbados Aloe, Kumari) : Possesses skin softening and astringent properties.
  • Emblica officinalis (Indian Gooseberry, Amalaki) : It is a cooling and cleansing herb.
  • Curcuma zedoaria (Zedoary, Shati) : It is cooling, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.

The goodness of Himalaya’s line is that the products are hypoallergenic, do not contain harmful chemicals and do not being tested on animals.

How to Use
After moisten my face, I rub the cream all over the face gently. Wash off and pat dry.

Actually I don’t get the clean feeling after the wash since it is not able to create lather. Though it claims to be not drying nor tightening the face, I still get my face feels tight after using the product until I apply toner.
