A few weeks back, I had read Akshata’s review on Patanjali Neem and Aloe Vera Face Wash. The review was really good, but I’m sad that the product didn’t work for her. I had just bought this face wash at that time, and wanted to try it out for some time before recommending it to you. I have been using this product for more than two weeks now and I’m really happy with it. So, this review is dedicated to my dear friend, Akshata. 🙂

My Experience with Banjara’s Neem Face Wash:
Starting with the packaging, this face wash comes in a transparent tube. The product name and claims are printed in the front, whereas the product description, ingredients, directions for use and other details are printed at the back of the tube on a white background. The transparent tube helps one to ascertain how much product has been used up and how much is left. The tube has a flip open cap that opens and shuts properly. Overall, the packaging is pretty sturdy and travel friendly. However, be careful to not drop it down anywhere. My tube slipped from my hands and I ended up breaking a part of the cap.
Coming to the fragrance, this particular face wash has a strong neem smell. However, the smell is not too overpowering and is, certainly, tolerable. Once, you wash your face, the fragrance disappears.
Consistency wise, this face wash is gel like and is semisolid. When you squeeze the tube, the face wash comes out in the form of small globules. In fact, when I first started using it, this face wash seemed like a solid gel and it almost slipped from my hands. However, after using it for more than two weeks, I have noticed that the consistency has slightly changed from an extremely solid gel to a more liquid gel.
Now, on to the most important question: Does this face wash really work? I would say – Yes! Of course, I may not be the best person to answer this question as I rarely get facial breakouts (touch wood). However, when I had started using this face wash, I noticed a small pimple on my chin. But, with consistent use of this face wash, I saw that the pimple slowly faded away. So, yes, it definitely helps in controlling pimples. And, the best part is that it doesn’t make my skin dry. My skin feels soft and moisturized after using this face wash. Only a small amount is required to cleanse your face. So, this product will last me for quite some time.
Now, let us look at the pros and cons of this product.
