Himalaya Herbals Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash Review

Himalaya Herbals is one of the most popular brands in the Indian herbal skincare market. I’ve been using their products since my teen days and there is no wonder that I’ve always been a happy customer. Their Neem Face Wash is an awesome product and it was a staple in my stash for a long time. But then, they came up with this Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash and I just couldn’t help but give it a try. How did it work for my dry skin? Well go through my review below:

Himalaya Herbals Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash


The face wash comes in a typical Himalaya Herbals packaging. It is a regular plastic tube, which is semi-transparent in color and has a dark green flip-top cap on its top with an orange lining. There is a sticker pasted on the tube that contains all necessary information regarding the product. Being an almost see-through tube, you can easily see how much content is left inside. The flip-top cap helps in taking out the required amount of product each time, while you can also open it just like a screw cap in case you want to get the content lying at the bottom. The cap is tight enough to prevent any sort of spillage. Hence, you can easily carry it during traveling.

My Take on Himalaya Herbals Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash:

The face wash is very light, minty green in color with a satiny appearance. It has an artificial scent, which fades away gradually after application. The texture of the product is smooth and creamy, while the consistency is medium. It is extremely light on the skin, which makes it a perfect daily cleanser. There is no micro-bead or granule in it, but that doesn’t reduce its efficiency as a face wash. As claimed by the company, it is a soap-free product. It neither lathers, nor gives a squeaky clean feel. But it removes all sorts of oil, dirt and impurities without ripping off the natural moisture of the skin. So, the face never feels dry or stretchy after washing. I use it twice every day – once in the morning and once before going to sleep. The combination of aloe vera, cucumber and menthol gives a cooling and soothing sensation every single time I use it on my skin. It is really good for those hot summer days. On the other hand, the Vitamin-E keeps the skin hydrated and moisturized for long. So, my face becomes soft and supple post-wash and I can apply moisturizer even after half an hour. I’ve been using this face wash since last 3 months and have not got any breakout till date. This is a true bliss for dry-skinned beauties.
