Product Description & Swatches:

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub Review


1)It is a creamy scrub come cleanser,skin feels soft and smooth.

2)The scrub particles are mild and not very coarse.So it does not irritate active breakouts.

3)It contains anti-bacterial ingredients-Turmeric,Neem.

4)It didn't break me out and cause any dryness.

5)It should suit all skin types since it is provides gentle exfoliation.


7)Easy availability.


1)Incomplete ingredient list so not sure if it is non-comedogenic.

2)The scrub granules might be synthetic beads.

3)It contains parabens.

4)Dry skin might need to follow up with a moisturiser.

5)It does sting a bit after application.

Directions for use:

Moisten face and neck,avoiding eye area.Massage the scrub gently for a minute.Rinse with water and pat dry.Use it 2-3 times in a week.

Final Verdict:

Most of the Himalaya products are good. Though this scrub is pretty for the price but did not exactly meet my expectations.I rather liked the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Mask which act as scrub come mask and Himalaya Deep Cleansing Apricot Scrub which is really great cleanser especially for oily-acne prone skin types.

My Rating:3/5
