Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Peel-Off Mask Review-
Himalaya Herbals’ Neem range has been a huge hit among people with oily and acne prone skin. All the products of this collection are fairly priced and quite effective in terms of performance. This raved about range used to have a face wash, a scrub and a mud face pack earlier. Last year Himalaya launched a Peel-Off Mask in this range. Due to my oily-combination skin, clay masks are always my first preference. Sadly, the Neem pack did not suit me. It was quite effective, no doubt, but my skin had to suffer alarming amount of tingling sensations and redness. So, this time I bought Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Peel-Off Mask. Read on to know how it fared on my skin.
What Himalaya Herbals Says-
Himalaya Herbals Neem Peel-Off Mask is a purifying facial mask power packed with tried and tested herbal combination- Neem and Turmeric. The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory property of these two help to reduce oiliness, lightens pimple marks and makes the skin problem-free.
How to Use: Apply an even layer of face mask all over face and neck. The skin should be thoroughly cleansed. Keep it on for 10-15 minutes. When the mask is completely dry, start peeling it off from the sides of the face. According to Himalaya’s advice, optimal result is achieved with once or twice a week application. It is best to do a patch test before first application to prevent any kind of adverse reaction.
Price: Rs.130 for 100gm
My take on the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Peel-Off Mask–
This peel-off mask comes in a white plastic tube with deep green flip-open type cap. The packaging is very similar to Himalaya’s Neem range face wash, scrub and face pack. The theme colour of the packaging is green. Overall the packaging is quite strong, leak-proof, aesthetically nice and easy to carry.
The neem based mask is transparent green in colour when it is wet. When the pack dries up completely its colour fades into faint green. Its consistency is on the thinner side. Such consistency is always convenient for a gum based peel off mask because the application becomes quite easy due to high spreading ability.
The product has light herbal fragrance. The smell again is very similar to other Neem products from Himalaya. The smell is not long staying.
I use face pack twice a week; this peel-off mask one time and any other clay pack for the other time. I try to follow company’s advices and till now those instructions have given good results. As I mentioned before, this mask is very easy to apply and easy to remove. After each application the skin looks cleansed and the facial pores look shrunk temporarily. The face brightens up with a sheer glow. The face remains oil-free for about 4 hours.
Thankfully, it does not cause irritations or redness to the sensitive area of my face like its clay based counterpart. I have not experienced any new breakouts after applying it but, the ‘reduction in pimple marks’ claim did not come true in my case.
Pros of the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Peel-Off Mask:
- Works as the final step to deeply cleansed skin
- Brings a light glow after every application
- Does not irritate the skin
- Did not cause new pimples to my skin
- Easily available, travel-safe and budget-friendly
Cons of the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Peel-Off Mask:
- Does not lighten pimple marks
- Contains alcohol
