Lotus Herbals Neemwash Neem & Clove Purifying Face Wash Review-
Facial washes and oil-free moisturizers are the two skincare items I cannot live without. Mu skin is very acne-prone. That is why twice a day face cleansing is a necessity for me rather than luxury. Neem based cleansers always show good results for me. Whenever I discover a new budget-friendly neem face wash I soon find myself as its owner! Today I am going to share my experience about Lotus Herbals Neemwash Neem & Clove Purifying Face Wash. In my recent online haul I purchased it for the second time. I used this face wash 2 years ago and that time it worked for me. My skin condition has not changed since then so I took a second chance and this cute product landed into my vanity. Here is what I felt about this product.
What Lotus Herbals Says-
According to Lotus Herbals Neemwash is an extraordinary face wash enriched with the goodness of two natural anti-bacterial ingredients; Neem and Clove. These two active constituents protect the skin and prevent several common skin worries including acne, blemishes and eczema.
How to Use: Wet the face. Take out a pea-size of product into your wet palm and rub it between both the palms to crush active Neem slices in the face wash. Now apply the wash on the face with gentle circular motion. Wash off with plain water and continue with the rest of the skin care routine.
Price: Rs.175 for 120 gm.
My take on the Lotus Herbals Neemwash Neem & Clove Purifying Face Wash-
This face wash comes in a half transparent-half translucent plastic tube with a flip-top cap.The packaging is quite hardy; both the tube and the cap are made up of good quality plastic. The cap shuts tightly securing the opening that dispenses the product. So, there is no product wastage. Overall I find the packaging to be simple, use-friendly, spillage-proof and travel-safe.
This Neem based facial cleanser is basically a light green coloured transparent gel wash with fluid texture. Some square shaped particles is sparsely distributed in the face wash which are named as ‘active neem slices’. It produces minimal lather when it is rubbed with water.
This product has a mild herbal smell; not anything resembling bitter neem fragrance or medicinal clove scent. The smell goes off within a few minutes of application.
I have oily-combination skin. I have reached the middle of 20’s but sadly the pimple problem is pretty much persistent as my teen years.This Lotus Herbals one seems to fulfill all my requirements. It provides my face with a nice deep cleansing experience without over-drying it. It keeps my face oil-free for about 3-4 hours which is good compared to other non-foaming gel face washes from the same price point. This clarifying face wash did not aggravate my acne situation or cause any new eruption of acne.
Out of all Neem based face cleansers I tried till date, this Lotus herbals one and the Himalaya Herbals one are my favourites. This face wash felt milder than the Neem face wash from Himalaya Herbals. I can use this one round the year while the Himalaya one makes my face dry in the colder months.
Pros of the Lotus Herbals Neemwash Neem & Clove Purifying Face Wash:
- Cleanses my Oily-to-combination skin really well
- Enriched with the goodness of Neem, Aloe and Clove
- Does not irritate my existing pimples or cause new break-outs
- Smells nice
Cons of the Lotus Herbals Neemwash Neem & Clove Purifying Face Wash:
- Not free from sulphates and parabens
- May feel drying to dry skinned ones
