Himalaya Herbals Fairness Face Pack Review


1)It is basically a mud face pack(Kaolin,Bentonite).

2)It contains Turmeric,Walnut,Saffron,Aloe vera extracts which help with skin lightening.

7)It gives a temporary glow.

8)It is suitable for normal-dry skin types.


1)It is highly comedogenic.It is not suitable for oily and acne prone skin.

2)It broke me badly.

3)It contains parabens.

4)No face pack can make a person fair in 15-20minutes.

5)Despite being a herbal brand loaded with chemicals and artificial preservatives.

Directions for use:

Apply face pack on cleansed face.Leave it for 15-20 minutes.Rinse with water.

Final Verdict:

Herbal phase was one of the biggest mistakes I did with my acne prone skin.These so called herbal companies Fabindia and Himalaya Herbals are loaded with chemicals with a hint of one or two herbal ingredients plus added comedogenic ingredients.I used this couple of times about 2-3 years and broke out almost on the same day every time.No fairness cream or face pack cannot make anybody fair,it is just these brands cashing in on false claims.Overall nothing exceptional about this product,it is just average. 

My Rating:1.5/5
