Product Review: Himalaya Organique Neem Facial Wash & Walnut Scrub

I am no stranger to Himalaya products but I have not seen their Organic skin care range before. Himalaya Organique is actually available at selected Himalaya boutique. As someone who loves organic skincare products, I am very pleased when contacted by a representative from Himalaya to try out the Himalaya Organique Purifying Neem Face Wash and Exfoliating Walnut Face Scrub.

Before I go on with the review, I would like to share with you some facts about Himalaya Organique that are worthy to be mentioned.

1. Himalaya Organique has obtained EcoCert certification. Only products that used 95% natural ingredients in the finished product will be able to obtain the EcoCert certification.

2. Himalaya Organique products are not tested on animals. It has the “leaping bunny logo” i.e. cruelty-free certification

3. The packaging is biodegradable/recyclable.

4. Himalaya Organique products are free from Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphates and Sodium Laureth Sulphates (SLS and SLES), Phthalates, Petroleum and its derivatives a, silicones, synthetic fragrances or artificial colors.

5. Cold pressed method is used to extract the oils so that the potent anti-aging compounds are preserved.

I have tried both products and would like to share with you my views about them.

Himalaya Organique Puryfiying Neem Facial Wash
As you can see from the picture, the product is in a gel form. Being an oily skinned person, I always like my cleanser in gel form. 

Product description:
A soap free face wash formulated using organic herbs, essential oils and natural extracts that cleanser skin of excess oil and impurities.

The main ingredients:
Neem leaf extract, tumeric root oil, natural vitamin E

What I like about the Himalaya Organique Neem Facial Wash?
  1. 98.7% of total ingredients are from natural origin
  2. It has a herbal scent that originates from natural plant extracts
  3. It does not foam because it does not have SLS but it cleanses well without drying the skin. There is no tight feeling after cleansing.
  4. My skin feels soft after each wash
  5. It is reasonably priced – RM39.90 for 150ml.
  6. Free from artificial fragrance

What can be improved?
I have nothing to complain about this product. It would be great if the cleanser is in a pump transparent bottle so that I can see the balance of the products. This is just my personal preference but it is not a major issue.

Rating for the scent: 4/5
Rating for product texture: 4.5/5
Rating for product effectiveness: 5/5

Himalaya Organique Walnut  Facial Scrub
As you can see from the picture, the facial scrub has fine granules made from walnut seed.

Product description: A gentle scrub with extracts of walnut and woodapple that exfoliates blackheads, dead skin cells and deeply embedded impurities.

The main ingredients:
Walnut, wood apple, nutmeg powder, aloe, bael fruit

What I like about the Himalaya Organique Walnut Facial Scrub?
  1. 98.7% of total ingredients are from natural origin
  2. It has a very calming smell that orginates from natural plant extracts (smells like apple and cinnamon)
  3. My skin feels soft after each use
  4. It is reasonably priced – RM39.90 for 150ml.
  5. Free from artificial fragrance

What can be improved?
I have nothing to complain about this product. However, I prefer the granules to be finer.

Rating for the scent: 4.5/5
Rating for product texture: 4/5
Rating for product effectiveness: 4/5

Why do I like products from organic source?
  1. The ingredients used are from organic farming, therefore, it is earth friendly
  2. Organic ingredients are safe for the skin. No harmful ingredients like parabens, SLS….. These synthetic ingredients that are present in most commercial products will irritate the skin and makes our skin becomes sensitive, dry or clog our pores.

Best of all, I think Himalaya Organique products are pocket-friendly. You get quality product for the money you spend.

I remember when I was younger my little cousin (who usually stays at our place during summer vacation) had lice in her hair. Since she stays in my room, the lice eventually infested my hair. So we had to use leaves from the neem tree (helps in removing lice). My hair became lice free but I had a hard time trying to remove the strong smell of the leaves. lol...

Anyway, I'd love to give this product a try. I haven't tried Himalaya products before. Thanks for posting this. ;)
