Review: Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash (15ml sample)
Today review is on Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash (Normal to Oily Skin). 

Overall this is a normal face wash to me. Although its able to make my skin feel smooth after washing for sometime, I do feel that its a little too drying just immediately after wash. Well, not a face wash I will buy.

My Review
This small sample size Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash is really good for bringing for oversea trips. Very convenient. 
Small travel size.
The face wash is green in color and has a jelly like gel texture. 
Green jelly like gel texture.
Its mention that its soap free. Well indeed it's "soap free" as I find it really hard to form foam using this face wash. 
Hard to form foam coz of soap free.
For me I am used to soap free face wash coz of my oily combination skin. But for my mum, she mention that she don't like as there is no foam, difficult for her to wash. 

Immediately after washing, I do really feel that its a little too drying to my skin. Although its for removing excess oil on skin, but I personally feel that my essential oil was removed together too. :( Don't really like the immediate after wash effect. 

However, after a while, my skin did really feel smooth. And the over drying feeling is gone too. 

But I am still wondering and it really bothers me if my essential oil or water needed by my skin was really removed together. :/ 

As for controlling acne and pimples, well, didn't help in this area really. 

Overall this is a normal face wash to me. Although its able to make my skin feel smooth after washing for sometime, I do feel that its a little too drying just immediately after wash. Well, not a face wash I will buy.

Where to buy it?
Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash is available at Watsons, Guardian, NTUC, Giant, National Health Group Pharmacies, Mustafa, Yes Supermarket, SGH, John Little, Robinsons, OG, Metro BHG, Himalaya Herbals Retail Oulet at Harbourfront Centre and other large retail chain for S$3.95 (50ml) and S$7.95 (100ml).

Where to get samples?

Review: Chupa Chups Kiss Me Lip Balm (Pudding Flavour)

Chupa Chups Kiss Me Lip Balm (6g)
Today review is on Chupa Chups Kiss Me Lip Balm (Pudding Flavour).

This lip balm is a little special to me. It smell like chocolate or vanilla Chupa Chups sweets. Feels like food to me not lip balm. :) Other then that, it is a normal lip balm that does moisturize the lip. 

Chupa Chups Kiss Me Lip Balm (Pudding Flavour) Summary
This is a limited edition product from Japan that comes in 5 different flavours. 

Its a creamy balm with a lush of pudding flavour. It contain squalane to prevent cracked and dry lips for long lasting moisture and suppleness. 
Lip balm information in Japanese language.
How to use Chupa Chups Kiss Me Lip Balm?
Apply with clean fingertips or a lip brush. 

My Review
Don't really remember how I get this product. Should be one of the product given from events or goodies bag. :)

The first impression is that Chupa Chups??!! Isn't it a lollipop brand. They have lip balm too?? well lets find out.

The packaging looks really attractive to me. First look I thought its a sweet if not for the big "Lip Balm' wording. 
Lip balm package.
Lip Balm container.
The lip balm flavour is pudding. So the moment I open the cap, I smell chocolate or vanilla. It smells like Chupa Chups sweets. Feels really food to me. One thing that comes to my mind, will ants come and look for me at night if I apply it. LOL
How the lip balm looks like.
The lip balm is colorless and feels a bit sticky. 
Lip balm is colorless.
Although it smells like chocolate or vanilla, it does not taste like it. It's in fact tasteless when I try to use my tongue to go over my lips.

Other then this, this is just a normal lip balm. It does moisturise my lip, preventing it from drying. :)

Mask fit perfect on my face.
During application, I don't feel any poking or tightening on my skin. Nothing uncomfortable. The mask feel really cooling on my face. Maybe due to me putting the mask in the refrigerator before use. :)

The essense is absorbed well onto my skin. After use I only feel my skin feeling hydrating and smooth. Other than that, nothing significant was seen. It does not really reduce fine lines. 

But for its hydrating and brightening effect, its still worth using.
