So I think I am ready to put it out there. This is the best face mask I’ve tried in a very, very long time. Really.
I mentioned this Himalaya Naturals Neem Face Pack or now known as Himalaya Purifying Neem Mask in my April Favourites last year, and since then, I’ve tried more face masks but I keep going back to this. There’s just something about how this mask extracts impurities from the skin while not overly drying my skin out.
This purifying face mask contains neem, fuller’s earth and turmeric, which are great ingredients for the skin. Neem is known for preventing acne, curing acne scars and making the skin glow. Fuller earth helps treat oily skin, remove blackheads and whiteheads and reduce scars and lastly, turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties, which are great for people suffering with acne like myself.
This mask claims to reduce excess oil secretion, clean clogged pores and prevent the recurrence of pimples, which I can attest to. I’ve been using this mask pretty often (about 1-2 times a week) for the past month, and I can see a difference when it comes to the blackheads on my nose as well as the acne on my cheeks. My acne seems to be much tamer and I get breakouts less often!
I like that it comes in a squeeze tube instead of a jar as it is much more convenient and hassle-free.IT also doesn’t dry out as compared to those in jars! I had my first tube for almost a year (that was before I rediscovered it and fell in love) and it worked perfectly. Just remember to give the tube a little shake before dispensing! The mask applies easily onto the skin as it has a slightly runny texture and it has a slight herbal scent to it. It’s not that overpowering and I find that I hardly notice it after a minute or two once the mask starts to dry.
Whenever I wash the mask off, my skin just feels purged without feeling tight. My skin honestly feels so clean (but not squeaky clean as that means all the moisture has been stripped!) and fresh. I love this after a workout especially, as it just cleans off all the gunk that has been trapped (and we all know how some gyms can get a little grubby!). Overall, the little bumps around my cheek area was noticeably reduced and my pimples decreased in size with just a few uses so it is definitely a staple in my skincare routine. Best part is that it is extremely affordable! I always stock mine up from iHerb as it is much cheaper than in stores! It’s about SGD 7.50 on iHerb while see it in Watsons for about SGD12. Even without the affordable price tag, I do think this is worthy of a place in your skincare routine and I hope that you will try it out!
