Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash

This face wash arrived at quite an appropriate time, seeing as my old face wash is starting to run out. This face wash is based on the neem plant, which is a certain tree native to India. It doesn't just list that on the package and then proceed to have 1% of neem in it, either; the third item on the ingredients declaration is actually neem extract. So that's a good start. What's neem even supposed to do, though? Well, apparently it has an antibacterial effect and is used in ayurvedic medicine to treat skin conditions such as acne and eczema. This bottle of face wash does indeed indicate that it's intended for normal to oily skin types, and gives you clear and problem-free skin.

The stuff in the bottle is a clear green liquid, rather than a gel or creamy substance. However, the bottle comes with a pump on top instead of a regular cap, and when you press it, the cleanser actually comes out as a white foam, much like a volumising mousse. One ball of foam (as pictured above) is plenty to wash your entire face.

I do like this face wash! I've used it for a little over a week now, and most of the impurities I had at the start of that period have cleaned up since then. (Now, I do have to add that it's possible that that's purely a hormonal thing, since I started my period around that same time, which has since ended.) It leaves my skin feeling nice and fresh and quite clean indeed. A bit more "squeaky clean" than with my old face wash, perhaps, but I actually don't mind that seeing as I have quite oily skin naturally. It doesn't leave my skin feeling overly dry, even on that day last week where I decided it was just way too hot to wear ANY kind of moisturiser or foundation. :P It has quite a subtle fragrance; vaguely herbal, but for the most part I just don't smell much at all. Overall, I'm quite pleased with this product. :)

In terms of general shortages, the iMac will be constrained for the full quarter in a significant way,” Cook told investors. “Part of that is that we’re beginning shipping the 21.5-inch iMac in November and the 27-inch in December, so there will be a short amount of time during the quarter to manufacture and ramp those, and I expect the demand to be robust.
