Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer Review

Hi Everyone,

This is another Himalaya product I bought from my last haul. Aloe and cucumber combination works really well for summers, as it cools down and refreshes the skin. I bought this one, even though it is winters here and my skin is super dry. Read on to know more.

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer:

The bottle comes in the standard Himalaya signature packaging. The bottle is fully white and the cap is green colored. The cap is a flip lock type, which is convenient for body lotions. The full ingredients list is not available, but the key ingredients aloe vera and cucumber extracts and the inactive presence of parabens is mentioned. The other required information about the product is mentioned behind the bottle. The packaging is simple and travel friendly.

The fragrance of the body lotion is very pleasing. It has a sweet cucumber smell, which is mild and will not bother anyone. The body lotion is pure white in color. It has a soft and smooth texture, free from any granules. The consistency is quite runny and liquid. As the consistency is very much runny, it tends to ooze out of the bottle with a slight squeeze of the bottle itself. There is some product wastage because of it, but after a few days of usage with the quantity reduced, this problem was solved.

Himalaya Moisturizer 4

This moisturizer is light and leaves a cooling effect on the skin because of the cucumber and aloe vera extracts. The texture is free from stickiness and really comfortable on the skin. It gets quickly absorbed into the skin and goes smooth on application. The level of hydration provided by the body lotion is very light. I have combination skin in summers and during winters, it becomes very dry. This moisturizer doesn’t provide enough moisturization on dry skin. I have to re-apply a few times. If you are having normal or combination skin, then this will work for you even for winters. This body lotion is a great product for summers, as it is light, completely oil free and leaves a cooling effect on the skin, but this doesn’t come with a SPF and I am sure many of us are not really comfortable with body lotions which are SPF free for summers.

Pros of Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer:

  • Affordable.
  • It has a good amount of herbal ingredients.
  • It leaves a very mild and soothing cucumber smell on the skin.
  • It does not make the skin sticky or oily.
  • Decent packaging.
  • Availability.
  • Great product for summers.
  • Light texture, perfect for combination and oily skin.

Cons of Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer:

  • Contains parabens.
  • It does not provide enough hydration for dry skin.
  • It does not come with SPF.

IMBB Rating:

3.8/5

Will I Repurchase Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer?

Yes, I might be repurchasing this for summers and I will not use it for my dry skin on winters. I recommend it to combination and oily skinned people. Dry skin girls, you can totally skip this one.
