When you have too much acne issues, brands like Clean & Clear, Neutrogena or Himalaya becomes your besties in no time. I, for example, have that kind of skin so I have to have at least one acne clearing Cleanser-Toner-Moisturizer substitute even in the coldest month of the year. Recently my skin went through a bad acne-bout which currently is in the recovery phase. These days I have set aside moisturizing cleansers and using Himalaya Herbals Neem Foaming Face Wash from my old favorite Himalaya Herbals. Himalaya has a quite popular Neem face wash in gel form but the one I am going to share my experience today is a comparatively newer variant in the foam base. Read on to know more.

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Neem Foaming Face Wash
Packaging- This face cleanser comes in a cylindrical transparent plastic bottle with transparent cap. It has wide mouth pump dispenser like shaving foams. The dispensing system is attached to the face wash bottle through a screw-open base. The packaging is quite small and cute looking. It is a handy-dandy kind of bottle that sits anywhere in my travel pouches. I have opted for the smaller size. This face wash is also available in bigger size.
Colour & Texture- This face cleanser is basically a light green liquid with high foam producing capacity. When this liquid passes through its pump dispenser, it becomes thick white foam. The foam is not too moisturizing but not too drying as well. It is very easy to rinse out.
Fragrance- This face wash has a mild herbal fragrance. The fragrance is exactly same as Himalaya Neem Face Wash’s gel version. The fragrance is very soothing and calming. The staying power of the fragrance is considerably low.
Experience- This is a foaming face wash but still its formula is soap free. This face wash does not dry out the skin like Clean & Clear’s foaming face wash. But, it is still a purifying cleanser. It will suit oily and normal skin but dry skin people might experience dryness after using this. To my combination skin, it gives the squeaky clean feel and that too without any stretchy feel. In summer my face does not feel the urge to get some moisturization immediately. In winter, I need a thin layer of moisturizer as a follow up of this cleanser. This face wash helps to dry out the big bumps of puss filled pimples. Like any other face washes, it does nothing to cystic acne. Regular use of this face wash helps to say goodbye to the small zits of clogged pores from my face.
