As much as I suffer from acne, the recurrent problems related to open pores (like blackheads) intrigue me that much if not more. I need to keep myself devoted to regular blackhead removal routines involving exfoliation and extraction. These days I am opting for mildly exfoliating daily washes to avoid the painful blackhead extraction as much as possible. For this purpose, I generally use my favorite Rose Face Scrub from VLCC. As the rose one is on the verge of getting over I have discovered another exfoliating face cleanser from Himalaya named as Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Apricot Face Wash. Today I am sharing my experience on this cleanser.

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Apricot Face Wash
Packaging- This face cleanser comes in a transparent plastic tube with green flip-open cap. The see-through packaging helps to detect how much product is left in the tube. The packaging is travel-friendly and sturdy. It has some nice looking label graphics on the front side and full ingredient list, usage details etc. on the back side.
Colour & Texture- This is a gel based face wash. It is transparent and flowy liquid. It has colorless gel base in which white color soft scrubbing beads are spread. There are small orange-brown and red cleansing beads sparsely distributed in the face wash as well though they are scanty in number than the scrubbing particles. At the time of application, it does create moderate foam and its scrub granules defoliate the skin mildly.
Fragrance- The fragrance is a big plus point for this wash. It has very soothing floral fragrance. The fragrance is very light and stays shortly. Once the face is washed thoroughly, the smell almost goes away.
Experience- This is my first exfoliating face wash and I am quite impressed with its performance. This is a soap-free cleanser and it really cleanses the skin deeply. It does not give stretchy skin due to the presence of moisturizing ingredients. In summer I would not feel the need to moisturize my face after cleaning my face with this wash but in these wintry days, my skin wants light moisturization. This wash has sufficient amount of soft scrub beads in it. Those beads gently exfoliate the skin. Even you rub your skin rigorously, the beads would not scratch the skin. I generally extract my blackhead twice a month as my regular skin care routine keeps the blackheads at bay for at most two weeks. I have been using this face wash once a day and this one made the effects of blackhead removal last a week more!
