I have been facing a lot of congestion under my skin recently and thus breakouts! I have heard a lot about Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack and that it really works when it comes to acne. So I thought of testing it out on my breakouts. This is considered one of the best neem pack available in India. And this pack is also raved a lot! So, does it really work on acne? Check out how it fared me!
The product contains the goodness of Neem, Fuller’s Earth and Turmeric, which work together to regulate excess oil secretion, clean clogged pores and prevent the recurrence of pimples.
- Neem is an excellent skin care ingredient known for its antibacterial properties. It improves general skin health and immunity, combating bacterial infections such as acne, boils and ulcers. Neem tackles bacteria from the root and prevents the recurrence of pimples and blemishes.
- Turmeric has been used as an antiseptic for centuries. The herb also has strong anti-inflammatory properties which soothe your skin gently. It also makes your skin soft and supple.
- Fuller’s Earth is an excellent cleanser. It removes deep-seated dirt and skin pollutants.
DIRECTIONS TO USE
Apply Purifying Neem Pack evenly over cleansed face and neck, avoiding the area around the eyes and mouth. Let the mask dry for 10-15 minutes, and remove with a wet sponge or towel. Rinse with cool water. For optimal results, use once or twice a week. Do not apply on broken or inflamed skin.
Best for oily and pimple-prone skin.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack
I tried it because one of my fellow bloggers recommended it to me. (Bareen, if you are reading this! :)) I have been using it for little over a month now, twice a week sometimes even on alternate days. I use this pack after scrubbing with my regular face scrub.
COLOR AND CONSISTENCY
The product is dark green in color and grainy in texture. It is neither thick nor runny in consistency and contains greenish liquid.
The herbal smell is neither mild nor strong, did not bother my nose at all. I rather felt calming and refreshing!
EFFECTIVENESS of HIMALAYA HERBALS PURIFYING NEEM PACK
My skin-type: Combination and acne prone
The pack application is not so smooth because of the tiny granulated particles present in it, nevertheless it didn’t bother me. Initially, I always feel tingling sensation which doesn’t last long. The pack dries up within 15 minutes of application and in the end I notice that it makes my face pores appear prominent! So I was scared that this would clog my pores. But it didn’t! The pack can be easily removed- I damp my face with water and start rinsing with slight rubbing/scrubbing motions and it gets easily removed. While removing I can feel the pack revealing soft and smooth skin.
After drying, I noticed my skin looking glow-y and fresh. And on touching it felt smooth. The softness and smoothness lasts throughout the day, which is great! But the following day skin texture feels as it was before. The pack is aiding in to heal my skin. It also keeps sebum in control for about 2 days. It feels soothing on the lesions and inflammation and the active acne scars also seems to diminish in appearance! My skin did not feel dry hence it will suit all skin types. Did not irritate my skin and I did not notice any extra breakouts except the usual.
I did not notice it doing much on my acne, as in- it did not help in curing or preventing any. It doesn’t deep clean skin and doesn’t unclog pores as it claims. It also takes some time to show the results. I did not see a great difference and therefore cannot call this an HG product. Hence if you have mild acne, you should try this but I won’t really recommend this product if you have moderate to severe acne, as you won’t really see the desired difference! I would say not to expect too much from this product.
The result may vary from person to person, depending upon in which acne category your skin-type fits in. Mine is mild to moderate. Let’s summarize the pros and cons!

It was Ok! 🙂
If you have mild acne and you break out only in “that” time of the month, then you can try this. Of course, both men and women can try this! But I won’t suggest this to you if you have moderate acne or severe acne issues, as you won’t really see any difference in your acne. (Coming from an acne prone girl!) So, have you used this neem face pack? What is your skin-type and how did it fare you?
