Skin type: oily and sensitive
Hope you guys are enjoying summer! This summer Himalaya has launched their ‘Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Washes’ with four variants. Today, I am going to review Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Wash Blueberry.
Price: INR 75 for 50 ml
Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Blueberry Face Wash is a special formulation with the energizing power of luscious Blueberry and the deep cleansing action of natural beads that helps remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities. It gives you oil-free freshness throughout the day and makes your face soft, healthy, and fresh.
Blueberry: The fruit contains a rich store of nutrients and antioxidants that exhibit skin-conditioning properties.
Indian Gooseberry: The astringent properties in Indian Gooseberry help reduce excess skin oiliness. The tannins act as free radical scavengers.
Directions for Use:
Apply Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Blueberry Face Wash on a moist face and massage. Gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry. Use twice daily.
My Experience with Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Wash Blueberry:
Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Washes come in cute summery packaging and they look very attractive too. ‘Blueberry’ comes in a blue colored tube along with a green flip cap. Also, there are some blueberry prints over it that make it a fun tube. Half of this tube is clear so I can notice the product too. It’s a nice lightweight and travel-friendly packaging that’s available in a bigger size too.
A nice amount of the product comes out only when the tube is squeezed and it’s a leak-proof tube as well. This Blueberry face wash has a refreshing fruity fragrance that provides freshness to my mood; I love to use it in the morning to wake me up. This entire range has such an amazing and energizing smell. The face wash itself is a light blue colored gel and has some micro white and dark colored beads too.
I don’t know the function of such beads but they feel good on the skin. Tough they do not effectively exfoliate the skin they help to clean my pores well. This texture glides smoothly on the skin and lathers well. It’s quite easy to wash off as well. Being an oil-clear face wash, it cleanses my skin deeply and removes excess oil from the face well. It also cleanses dirt and impurities from the skin and leaves it fresh, squeaky-clean.
My skin looks oil-free, non-sticky and clear too. This face wash controls oil for a few hours and then my skin becomes oily as usual. But that’s not an issue as it actually helps to clear oil effectively. This is perfect as an everyday cleanser. My skin appears softer, smoother and brighter after using this face wash.
It provides a decent amount of hydration to the skin and never makes my skin feel dry or stretchy. But if you have extremely dry skin, then it can’t provide enough nourishment. Otherwise, for normal to oily skin, it works well. Also, the face wash adds brightness to dull skin and reduces tired, lifeless texture. It is a good option after a long tiring day. It cleanses minimal face makeup but is not so effective on heavy eye makeup.
It has never irritated my skin and has never broken me out. But I haven’t noticed much difference among these four variants. They are pretty much same except for their fragrance; only this blueberry variant feels soothing and claiming. Overall, this is a nice and affordable face wash. It is good enough for everyday use and it cleanses the skin well.
