Review: Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub

18:37:00

Hey beauties,

I hope you all are doing great. Last month I bought a few new skincare products for winters and many of you requested me to review this "Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub". My HG facial scrub is St.Ives Apricot scrub which I have been using it for many years now. This is the first time I have tried any Himalaya Herbals product. Let's see what I have to say about this scrub.

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub Ingredients
This scrub comes in a normal squeezable tube like packaging. It has kinda creamy texture and has some fine brownish granules. I have dry/combination skin which is pretty sensitive. The best thing is that the granules exfoliate the skin well without being too harsh on it.

I have used this scrub many times since I bought it. It works well on my dry/combo skin. You need to take generous amount of this scrub on your palm and rub it on wet face in circular motion. Rinse off when you are done. While rubbing it on my skin I noticed some sort of  heat coming out of my skin. Probably because of natural antioxidants properties it claims to have. The strong awful medicine like odor it has makes me rinse it off my face as soon as possible.

Now coming to the performance part. Let me tell you that I use a mild exfoliating facial wash daily so I am not very sure how well it will perform if used just alone for weekly exfoliation. But for me, it has performed quite well. This scrub exfoliates the skin well, removes blackheads and doesn't feel drying at all. Rather it moisturizes the skin. My skin feels soft and supple after using it but it also feels a little over-moisturized. As I have dry/combination skin, its not much of problem for me. But, people will oily skin might find it a bit greasy. Luckily it didn't irritate my sensitive skin.

Overall, it's a decent scrub for those with dry skin. It is not harsh on skin and exfoliates the skin well. Makes my skin feel soft but the awful smell is a big turnoff. And I wont be using this in summers as it tends to leave a kinda oily layer on the face after using. It definitely can't beat my HG St.Ives Scrub or Clean & Clear Scrubs. And am not going to pick this up again. As there are other better scrubs available at lesser price.


The Goods:
  • Is gentle and not harsh on skin
  • Good scrub for those with dry skin
  • Exfoliates the skin well
  • Has natural antioxidants properties
The Bads:
  • The strong awful smell
  • Makes the skin feel a bit oily/over-moisturized after use
  • Not a great scrub for those with normal/oily skin

Price & Availability: I bought mine from a local mart for PKR 450/- for 150(ml) tube. Also available online at Just4girls.
