Its been a month since the lock down began and the truth is that I did not believe that we would be house bound for this long. Going into the lock down, I did not once consider replenishing my skincare. So, days into the lockdown and soon the regret began to set in. That being said, I knew I needed a few basics. This is when my journey with Himalaya herbals purifying mask began.
I have extremely sensitive skin, and as a result, I am particularly aware of what I use on my skin. With the hope of getting my products from my beautician being very slim, my only alternative was to acquire products that were natural in base.
I have read many reviews regarding the Himalaya herbals range, and in particular the neem mask.
What is neem ?
- Neem is a herb that comes from the neem tree in India.
- It has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties.
- Protects the skin and can keep the skin soft and supple.
- It can assist in reducing scars that were caused from acne.
How to use the mask?
Step one : Cleanse the face
Step two : Apply a pea sized amount of the product onto your finger tips and gently massage the face.
Step three : Once you have exfoliated the skin with the product, I recommend that you wait 20 minutes.
Step four : Use warm water to rinse the product off. You may use a cleanser to wash off the mask.
Step five : Pat dry and apply moisturiser.
I used the mask twice a week, generally at night and felt that the product cleansed my skin well. I noticed a definite glow in my skin, however I do not recommend that you use the product more than three times in a week. The exfoliation action could step the skin of its essential oils.
The product was value for money and the results are noticeable.
