Himalaya Hydrating Cream Face Wash (for dry skin) Review

Himalaya herbals is one of my most trusted Indian brands.Their Neem Face wash (reviewed here)is my HG product. I bought this particular face cleanser during last winter as it claimed to be meant for dry skin. 


What does Himalaya Hydrating face wash Cream Claim-
A soap free herbal formulation that gently cleanses and moisturizes. Unlike soap, it will not leave your face feeling dry and stretched. Cucumber cools and soothes, and Aloe vera tones and softens your skin. Use regularly for clean, fresh and glowing skin

Price- 70 INR for 100ml

Shelf Life- mentioned

Ingredients-
Each gm contains: Trapusha (Cucumis sativus) 100mg, Processed in Kumari (Aloe barbadensis), Amalaki (Ambilika officinalis), Karchura (Curcuma zedoaria).
Inactives: Phenoxyethanol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.

What I Liked about Himalaya hydrating cream face wash-
  • Did not leave my skin dry or stretchy
  • consistency is creamy and satiny :P
  • has a mild refreshing fragrance
  • makes skin clean, removes mild make up
  • Skin looks fresh ,soft n supple
  • travel friendly tube packaging with a flip flop cap. semi transparent tube.
  • affordable and easily available
  • complete ingredient list mentioned

What I didn't Like about Himalaya hydrating cream face wash-
  • Does not lather much
  • Contains Parabens
My Rating- 4/5

Final verdict- I would recommend all normal to dry skin beauties to give it a try. It cleanses well without making skin overtly dry and for the price it's a winner definitely

  6. Gooooood review di, but I have a doubt :o *scratches head* Right now I am under medication for acne, and I am not supposed to use ANY anti-acne products. Currently using Himalaya Neem Face Wash, but then it doesn' t smell good :| My skin has gone dry, patchy and flaky in most parts, thanks to medication. But my T-zone remains oily :| Can I use this face wash?
    Love,
    Namita <3

    1. neem face wash doesn't smell good :O ! hmm, its a very mild smelling one indeed !
      As a cleanser this one will be a good option, but as you are in a "break out phase" I would suggest you not to experiment much. Moreover the active ingredients,if doesn't suit you. may aggravate the problem !
      As a medico, i think i would suggest you to opt for medicated face washes/mild cleanser! Cetaphil for sensitive skin(reviewed in this blog earlier) can be good. Don't apply n rub off with cotton pad, instead use it as a you normally use your face wash n remove with splash of water. Also, its better to splash plain water several times a day when you break out badly.

  10. I have combination and sensitive skin. It's been hard to find a skin product for me. Recently I've been looking for a cream to use for both during the day and night. I have tried the Made from Earth Vitamin C Moisturizer one for a week and am absolutely in love with this. And its organic without chemicals! When I put it on, it feels light and refreshing with no scent.

    It has the perfect amount of moisturizer so my face feels hydrated and I don't need to constantly reapply nor wiping oil off my face. I have not found any other product fits my skin so well and I'll stick with this one for a while!
