Himalaya Herbals Oil Clear Mud Face Pack Review

Product: Herbals Oil Clear Mud Face Pack
Rating: 4.5/5

I still don’t remember the last time I ever thought – Wow, this mask works. After hard day at work, you are desperate for a tea or coffee to re-energize the rest of the day and your skin is the one that must have taken the biggest troll, I don’t know about you guys but I tend not to drink water, visit loo or wash my face when I am struck in work. I just still haven’t figured it out how to stay stress free at office, especially during meeting and post meeting deadlines. I know I know you must thinking where I am taking you guys! Sorry, let’s get back to the topic – I have taken an oath that I will spend 15 minutes to do something that keeps me out of thinking the mundane topics that runs in my mind post work.

And while I was looking for mask where I can lay dead for 10 minutes, wash it off and I get to see bright, clear and smooth face – no signs of hard day! And that one product which I can never ever imagine to not use every day. I was grocery shopping and one glance thru the shelf – it was spontaneous purchase which I will never regret.

Two main ingredient that I always swear by – Mutani Mitti and Walnut. Oil clear Mud Face Pack especially for combination to oily skin. The product claims to deep cleanses, firms and rejuvenate. A mineral rich pack that absorbs excess oil, deep clears clogged pores and deeply embedded impurities. Fuller’s earth helps to firm the skin, cools and rejuvenates.  Walnut removes skin impurities and dead cells. Mineral Clay deep cleanses clogged pores and leaves your skin soft and smooth.

Ingredients – Aqua, Clay Minerals, Fullers Earth, Bentonite, Glycerin, Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Extract, Juglans Regia (walnut) shell extract, Kaolin, Xanthan Gum, Methylparaben, Fragrance, Proplyparaben, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

The only element which concerns me is the usage of SLS, both otherwise the product is best for daily use. It costs Rupees. 70 for 50gms with 3 years to expire. Hypoallergenic and no harmful chemicals (how about usage of SLS!)

First hand review – I usually wash my face to remove the oil and dirt, what’s the point in trying to cleanse a face full of dirt and oil and then without removing the excess water, I apply a thin layer of mask and let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes. The consistency of the cream is very smooth and thick and you don’t need much if you have already washed lightly. Then all I do is wash off and apply toner and at times a moisturizer. Perks of being an oily skin type – there are very few products that can actually reduce the oil secretion. Over years, I have come to agreement that it’s actually good to avoid products that claim to control or stop oil that naturally helps you to stay wrinkle free.

I didn’t notice any change on first few days, but after a week I noticed my pigmentation was reduced and I was less oil free. I am 100% confident that the result was purely on usage of this product because I purposely stopped using any toner or serum. I just wanted my skin to breathe and take in the goodness or bad and show the result. And glad that I decided to do it this way, it was easy to take notes on changes and keep it real for users to make a decision.

I am almost done with my 50g pack and I will definitely buy a bigger one for sure until summer is off in Chennai. Here’s my recommendation – go ahead buy this for summers especially, use it once a week if you have dry skin and daily (apply a thin layer) if you tend to oil more like me.

My Rating – 4.5/5 (-.5 for using SLS)
