Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Scrub | Review

Sunday, September 11, 2016

Hi lovelies! Today I'm going to share my experience with Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Scrub. Ignore the word 'whitening' because it's overrated. 😕 I simply bought this scrub because I already used Himalaya's Neem Scrub and wanted a change. When it comes to skincare Himalaya is an affordable brand. Reasons why I use their products because they're affordable, herbal, works most of the time and is easily accessible. So here goes my review...

About this Product:

Licorice helps regulate melanin synthesis. White dammer lightens skin, clears spots, enhances complexion and gives the skin an even tone.

Inactives: Phenoxyethanol IP, Methylparaben IP, Propylparaben IP

Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Scrub Review
It comes in a white plastic tube with a green flip cap. It's very sturdy. However, the product always get accumulated on the mouth. Flowery print on the tube looks cute. This scrub is in pale white colour with little apricot granules. It smells just like Himalaya Natural Glow cream, a herbal flowery smell. It has a creamy consistency. 

I take a dollop of the scrub and gently keep scrubbing in circular motions. Even a pea size would do for a mild exfoliation. Since I have oily skin, this cream scrub leaves a thin layer on my face which works as a moisturizer but dry skin ladies might need to moisturize. I don't think it's suitable for acne prone skin. My face feels cleaner and a little brighter after using this. But the brightening effect is just temporary! One thing I keep in mind is that apricot granules are usually harsh so a light hand while massaging is essential. I use this scrub 2-3 times a week and it works effectively in keeping my skin clean and free from dead skin.

• It's herbal and mostly free from chemicals
• Contains licorice which lightens skin
• Leaves skin clean and moisturized
• Is very affordable and easily available

• Contains parabens
• Might not suit oily skin.

Final Word: Overall, this scrub is pretty much average and does its basic job of exfoliation. Again don't get intrigued by whitening claim because the effect lasts temporarily. Oily skin may find it little thick but dry skin girls might just like it because of its creamy consistency. I like that it contains natural extracts as actives. It's herbal and affordable so I recommend this!

Have you used this scrub? Do you like scrubs by Himalaya Herbals?

Have a good day!

Lots of love,
