Himalaya Herbals Face Moisturizing Lotion Review



Hello all!!
Healthy skin comes with proper skin care and moisturization is one of the important steps.I will review a face moisturizer today which is from our local and very easily available brand Himalaya Herbals, which nourishes, moisturizes and protects. Let’s see how it lives upto it’s claims.
About the product:Nourishing Face Moisturizing Lotion is a unique formulation of natural ingredients that rehydrate your skin and restores skin vitality. Enriched with ingredients like Aloe Vera, White Lily and Almond Oil, it protects your skin from the damage caused by exposure to pollution and sunlight. The lotion is a perfect base for make-up.

Indications: Normal, oily or combination skin. Loss of natural moisture and nutrients due to frequent exposure of the skin to environmental extremes, pollution and chemicals.
Directions: Apply all over the face and neck with gentle upward strokes.

Ingredients: Aloe vera (Barbados Aloe, Kumari), Prunus amygdalus (Almond oil, Vatada), Daucus carota (Carrot Seed Oil, Garijara), Lilium polyphyllum (White Lily, Ksirakakoli).
 
I got this moisturizer long ago, when my skin was getting dry, In spite of it being combination one, may be due to weather change!! It happens sometimes, like you have oily to combination skin type but still there are days when your skin feels thirsty, it can happens commonly during winters too. At least for me. :D

Anyways! This product comes in a flip top packaging and the similar packaging can be seen in their other products too! It’s a Nourishing face moisturising lotion that claims to have the goodness and extracts of Aloe vera and almond oil. They have shown the list of ingredients though!! still I think some of the inactive ingredients are missing.
It’s consistency and texture reminds me of the regular body lotions from brands like Nivea, Vaseline, parachute etc. It really gets absorbed in the skin and doesn’t feel much greasy but provides proper  moisture, good for normal to dry skin types.

I have combination skin and it was good for me during the winters and spring but not for summers as in summers, I use oil free moisturizers like clean and clear on the areas on my face which are Normal and very lightly on the areas which are more likely to secrete oil! Likely!! nooo, those are oil factories, mines etc... what ever we wish to call these areas with overly active sebaceous glands! :D
I don’t see myself using it right now, I mean in summers, but as  mentioned it did a good job during the dry season.

People who have normal to dry skin will like it as it gets absorbs easily and does moisturizes their skin though very dry skin will need something more hydrating. This is what I think since mum has dry skin and no matter which lotion is applies, her face starts feeling dry again! But So far, Cosmedic Lumiday has proved to be the best for her very dry mature skin!
At the price, it is a good product and can be incorporated into your skin care regimen.
Pros of Himalaya Herbals Face Moisturizing Lotion:
  • Travel friendly packaging with a flip top cap which isn’t loose or anything.
  • Very easily avalable,  think they are available in every corner of the country. :D
  • Very affordable
  • Gets absorbed easily
  • Doesn’t feel much greasy
  • Suitable for normal to dry skin
  • List of ingredients mentioned, though I feel it may not be complete.
  • Hasn’t broken me out yet
  • Dermatologically tested and is hypoallergic which makes it safe for sensitive skin.
Cons:
  • May not be suitable for very oily skin and especilly during summers
  • Parabens.. (cant run from them.:D)
Rating: 4.25 out of 5

My Take: Himalaya Herbals Moisturizing lotion is a pretty decent moisturizer for dry to normal skin that does hydrates properly though it may not be the same for oily skinned people. At the price it can be tried.

  10. Sounds like a good moisturizer for winters. My skin turns a little oily in summers. Their products are great but too many preservatives scare me from using them.
