What does the Brand Claim about Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash

Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Face Wash is a soap-free, herbal formulation that cleans impurities and helps clear pimples. A natural blend of Neem and Turmeric bring together their antibacterial and antifungal properties to prevent the recurrence of acne over time.

Key ingredients:

  • Neem is an excellent skin care ingredient known for its antibacterial properties. It improves general skin health and immunity, combating bacterial infections such as acne, boils and ulcers. Neem tackles bacteria from the root and prevents the recurrence of pimples and blemishes.
  • Turmeric has been used as an antiseptic for centuries, and it is regarded as one of nature’s most powerful healers. The herb helps to even out your skin tone and colors, making it an excellent ingredient in a face wash. It also helps to retain the skin’s elasticity, making it supple. Turmeric has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe your skin.

How to Use:

Moisten face, apply a small quantity of Purifying Neem Face Wash and gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry. Use twice daily.

My Experience with Himalaya Neem Face Wash

I always like pump style products as they are easy to use on the go, but hard to carry in your bag, so I made sure I buy this bigger bottle.I bought this because I was suffering from pimples due to this humid and hot weather suddenly in Pune! I could see my pores getting blocked and then small blackhead problems emerging. This is the main reason as I wanted to tackle the blocked pores before a full-blown acne knockout happened. I gave it at least 15 days and voila, it is managing to dry out many pimples.

 Which could have erupted in this heat? Initially, I did not notice much happening but later this did help me to dry out skin overall, now this skin dry feel happens with this face wash, so do use a light gel moisturizer.

 The gel wash is smooth but it does not feel foamy, it creates mild foam and the gel feels very smooth to use, I try and use drinking water to wash the face. This does feel like it will take some time to rinse off, the skin feels like it has some slippery feel to it, but surprisingly this dries the skin lightly, you can use it for oily skin I would say.

Overall Performance of Himalaya Neem Face Wash


  • It managed to dry out a pimple and blocked pores in 15 days
  • The gel feels smooth to use
  • The smell is mild
  • The pump style bottle is very easy to use
  • Great for summers
  • Manages to remove surface oil and grease


  • The wash is hard to rinse off
  • Does not deep clean
  • It makes the skin dry, so the only oily skin could use it 

 Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I would say give it time, it will dry out mild pimples. I will buy it again if any active pimples happen during summer.

This cleanser is soooo good if you have whiteheads or tiny little bumps all over your face as it really removed all of them really well and i got mine removed also. I used to have tiny little bumps and whitehead all over my forehead and cheek but not anymore with this cleaner.I bought this from Chase Value Centre and recommend you all to use this product.

@Karishma , also, don’t worry do these two things also for 15 days and then tell us the result :

1. Stop drinking Milk. You can have paneer or curd, but NO milk
2. Every day, Take 1 raw potato and drink its juice. I raw potato juice every day for 10 days.Your acne will start clearing up
3. Apply lacto calamine with a clean cotton over acne and NEVER touch it with your hands. Use earbud or clean cotton.
