Its been a long we have talked about a Men's product. Although Men are still deprived of the special targeted skin care and grooming product as compared to women but certain companies have started with basic skin care and shaving essentials.
So we are today reviewing one of the skin care/bath product from +Himalaya Store . Himalaya Herbals is also one of the companies which has come up with their face wash range for Men. It is Himalaya Herbals Men: Power Glow Licorice Face Wash for visibly fairer and brighter skin. You can buy this from Amazon here.
Price- 140 INR for 100gms. Easily available on retail counters and online stores.Here again a review I am sharing, my hubby's experience as user. Last review of Himalaya Herbals Intense oil clear Lemon face wash, which he reviewed & wrote.
Himalaya Herbals Men: Power Glow Licorice Face Wash has been specially designed for men's skin. it is powered with white spice Active Boost Technology that helps in the action of herbal actives. Fortified with Licorice extract- Natural Skin Lightening and Antioxidant agent. Wood Apple- Natural Exfoliating Agent. Menthol- Natural Coolant.
Ingredients- Aqua, Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Cellulose, Hydroxy Methylcellulose, Carnuba Wax, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxythanol, Niacinamide, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Apricot Seed Powder, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Limonia Acidissmia Shell Powder, Methnol, Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) Extract, Licorice Root extract, Pepper Fruit Extract, CI 15985.
Company claims this to dermatologically tested but the ingredients like carnoba wax can be comedogenic.
Himalaya Herbals Men: Power Glow Licorice Face Wash is bright turquoise blue & orange plastic squeezy tub with a flip cap; common with face washes. The packaging has been changed from last time green and yellow one. This one is little more attractive.
But inside there has not been much difference- orange coloured thick gel, which thickens with time. It smells of typical men's cologne- same aqua mixed floral fragrance, quite strong but does not linger on for long. it becomes at times difficult to squeeze it out and needs an extra pressure to pull out the desired quantity. It lathers well and cleans all kind of dirt, grime and greasiness from the face. I have not experienced any side effects/irritation so far with this.
But claims of fairness- I firmly believe that one just can not alter the skin tone and texture, its something hereditary but yes, pigmentation and marks can be faded or even removed; the reason why usually, I pick these products (should say 'she' picks them for me). Once pigmentation and dark spots are faded, gives a even and smooth tone to skin.
Himalaya Herbals Men: Power Glow Licorice Face Wash would work on minor spots and pigmentation if used consistently for a period of time but not to expect something out of the world and miraculous.
I would say Himalaya Herbals Men: Power Glow Licorice Face Wash like other face washes is a good face wash but not something to give fairness etc. Can be tried at the given price tag.
My Rating - 4/5
