Hello lovely ladies! ❤❤❤
Hope you all are doing great! 🙂
Do you sometimes feel that your skin looks dull and uneven, even after applying tons and tons of Beauty products? 🙁
If yes, then you might be lacking proper exfoliation! The dead cells piled up on our skin can make it look dull, rough and dry. It cab also clog pores leading to an increase in sebum secretion and acne! 🙁
So, an exfoliation is a must!
I have always relied on homemade scrubs for a natural exfoliation but sometimes we do run out of time or need an instant exfoliation; and this is when the ready-made scrubs come into the frame! 😀
Today I will be reviewing one of the Scrubs from Himalaya Herbals which has added benefits of Neem to help with acne and skin impurities! ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
If you have gone through my previous posts, you might be knowing that I have an oily, acne-prone skin, that tends to break out every now and then! 🙁
So, anything that contains Neem as an ingredient, and claims to be beneficial for pimple prone skin, becomes a “MUST BUY” for me, regardless of the fact that it actually works or not! 😛
This neem scrub from Himalaya, comes in a green and white tube packaging with Neem leaves printed in the front.. It has a flip cap that shuts tight, making it is easy to carry while traveling.. ❤
The scrub has a faint minty green colour to it and smells of Neem leaves mixed with some cold cream! ( Okay, that’s a weird example! 😛 )
It has a creamy texture, but certainly not as creamy as the LOTUS HERBALS scrubs.. It neither makes the skin oily nor dries it out completely. So I think it would suit all skin types.. ❤
The scrub contains a lot of fine, green coloured plastic granules in it apart from the regular apricot granules…
Now as far as the working is concerned, It is a pretty decent scrub and scrubs off all the dead skin cells, providing a healthy glow to the face but apart from that I couldn’t find it being actually helpful for my acne or blackheads..
It does remove the blackheads a little with regular use, but as for the acne, I haven’t noticed any considerable difference even after months of use! 🙁
But, in the end.. it is quite gentle on the skin and didn’t break me out too! 😀

SUMMING DOWN PROS AND CONS:
1. Travel friendly, affordable and easily available! Buy it from here…
2. Scrubs off dead cells effectively.
3. After using the scrub the skin feels clear, bright and refreshing.
4. Quite gentle on skin; won’t break you out.
1. Has PARABENS.
2. Doesn’t help considerably with blackheads or acne.
FINAL TAKE: This is a pretty good scrub for all skin types.. It does remove the dead skin buildup from the face effectively; but it completely fails to stand true to its claims of fighting acne or blackheads…
Hope It Helps ❤
