My Experience With Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream:
The acne cream come in a simple white tube packaging with a green screw cap, a very similar packaging to various medicinal creams across drug stores. The cream is light beige in color with a thick consistency. This cream should be applied on the skin post washing to prevent and cure acne issues. Now, speaking of acne trouble, I had to face it throughout the past few months and hence I thought this cream might help the issue a little. It didn't take much time to realize how wrong I was!
When I applied the cream first time post washing my face, I felt the cream is a bit thick and oily. Nevertheless, I continued to apply it as per the mentioned direction for a week or so. But, unfortunately, there was not a hint of improvement on my skin. In fact, I felt the cream exaggerated the issue further. After 1-2 hours of application, I noticed the concerned area became extremely oily and greasy. The main purpose of every acne cream, lotion or gel is to eliminate the oil or sebum and make the skin slightly dry to prevent further pimples, but this very cream defeats the purpose by making it more oily. I had high hopes on this brand due to its herbal properties, but this cream absolutely falls flat on any expectations.
Pros Of Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream:
- Decent packaging.
- The price doesn't pinch the pocket, given the fact that the product is such an epic failure.
Cons Of Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream:
- Thick and oily cream.
- Makes the skin oily and defeats the whole purpose of curing acne.
- No effect on acne whatsoever.
- Exaggerates pimple issues.
