Remember I told you guys about the Himalaya store the other day. I went hauled a few products from here. Except the Himalaya Hydrating Face wash, all others are repurchases.
Himalaya Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub (Rs 80 for 50 gm):
Claims : Gently exfoliates dead skin cells and blackheads. Unclogs pores. Deep cleanses the facial skin and stimulates fresh cell growth to keep the skin soft and glowing. Routine cleansing does not remove the dead skin cells and deeply embedded impurities, leaving the skin lifeless and prone to blackheads. Exfoliation is necessary. Gentle Exfoliating Apricot Scrub has Apricot kernel granules that gently scrub the skin to remove dead skin cells and blackheads. Wheatgerm oil, rich in natural vitamin E, moisturizes the skin and Apple provides nourishment for a healthy, glowing skin.
I have used this scrub for years and years now. I solely buy this for the tip of my nose where I need scrubbing almost every other day to remove my black heads.
It has a creamy base, has coarse apricot granules and smells a little medicinal to me. For overall face scrubbing I find it a little harsh for my dry skin but for nose tip, it’s just fine. I also use it for my elbows and feet. Works well there also. Overall,a decent scrub.

Himalaya Herbals Toner ( Rs 70 for 100 ml):
Claims : Refreshes and tones the skin. Reduces oil secretion and keeps the skin oil-free. Gentle Refreshing Toner purifies and refreshes your skin. This alcohol-free toner removes the impurities and makes pores appear small. Lemon and Jasmine cleanse and refresh your skin, while Sensitive plant controls excess oil secretion. Sweet marjoram nourishes the skin to keep it radiant and healthy.
I find this toner quite refreshing but I don’t feel it keeps the skin oil free. It works as a light moisturizer, wonder how could it keep the skin oil free. It smells pleasent, does not leave my skin dry, is alcohol free and I feel quite refreshed after applying it. The only irritating thing with this is the bottle. This a tiny hole that you have to make for the toner to come out. If the hole is big you will always have problems of of getting more than required and if the hole is tiny, it’s all the more irritating. I don’t get into all these hassles. I just transfer kit to my spray a bottle and make my life easy.
Like it a lot. 🙂

Himalaya Refreshing Fruit Pack: (Rs 100 for 50 gm):
Himalaya Hydrating Face Wash: (Rs 40 for 50 gm)
Soap-free daily use face wash to cleanse and refresh your skin.
A gentle face wash that nourishes and moisturizes your skin while cleansing it. Unlike soaps, Gentle Face Wash Cream does not leave the skin dry and feeling stretched. Enriched with Aloe vera that nourishes, and moisturizes and Cucumber that cools and soothes the skin, it leaves your skin soft, supple and refreshed.
Thi is a new product that I bought. I have used it thrice so far and I think I am going to like it. It’s very creamy and does not leave my skin dry or stretchy. It smells okayish, I think very similar to the neem face wash..It doe not say that it is soap free . It’s like a normal pleasant face wash. If it’s not going to do any good to my skin, I know it not going to harm for sure.
Himalaya Gentle Baby Wipes: (Rs 27 for 12 sheets)
Claims : cleanses, moisturizes and keeps the baby skin soft. An effective combination of herbs that, moisturizes and keeps the delicate skin soft. Aloe vera ensures moisture balance to keep your baby’s skin soft and supple. The Indian Lotus keeps the skin dry and smooth.
I jut love these wipes. They are wet wipes and I mostly use them after removing my complete makeup or even while doing the makeup, I keep a sheet with me. I don’t know if you have realized this but even your best face cleanser leaves some foundation or makeup behind. You may just wash your face as well but I like to wipe my face with these wipes and then wash. These are cottony soft, smell like a *baby* (you know how babies smell when you apply some Johnson’s baby powder on them and then they smell so clean and happy. Aww!!) and leave my face baby soft.
Love these completely.
