Review : Himalaya Organique Exfoliating Walnut Face Scrub

I am always a big fan of scrub and mask because of the almost immediate effect I could see and feel after using it . Today I am happy to share my views on this Himalaya Organique Exfoliating Walnut Face Scrub which I received for review .

I was told Himalaya Organique is different from their usual Himalaya range because

1) Himalaya Organique has EcoCert certification which means it has 95% natural ingredients in the finished product.

2) Himalaya Organique products are not tested on animals and it has the “leaping bunny logo” i.e. cruelty-free certification as well.

3) The packaging is biodegradable and recyclable.

4) Himalaya Organique products are free from Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphates and Sodium Laureth Sulphates (SLS and SLES), Phthalates, Petroleum and its derivatives a, silicones, synthetic fragrances or artificial colors.

5) Cold pressed method is used to extract the oils so that the potent anti-aging compounds are preserved.

p/s: Just to share that even before this, I am a big fan of Himalaya products because it's affordable and effective and who say organic product are expensive to use?

Comes in a tube form

Texture : Scrub made from fine granules made from walnut seed and woodapple

Scent : Very nice fruity scent, Love the scent!

My Review : I followed the instruction and wet my face before applying the scrub. Roughly a 20 cent size of scrub is sufficent for my whole face. My first feeling is that the scrub smell really very fruity and yummy that I feel like wanting to eat them :P However I do notice their granules is not that fine as it claimed. However it is fine with my skin as I gently scrub it all over my skin. After few minutes of good scrub I wash it off with water. Note the granules did not melt with water. After I raise my face off with water, I can feel my face texture is immediaely softer. I realised that with twice a week regime with this scrub, my blackhead/whiteheads prone areas are clear! Do note that do not scrub your face too long with this scrub although it smells yummy because you might be a bit drying on your skin if you scrub it for too long (especially for people with dry skin)
Pros : Smells yummy, face feel softer after use, my blackhead/whiteheads prone areas are clear, certified by Ecocert , free from arabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphates and Sodium Laureth Sulphates (SLS and SLES), Phthalates, Petroleum,.. and good value for money

Cons : Granules are not very fine so scrub gently, might be a bit drying on your skin if you scrub it for too long (especially people with dry skin)

  1. i love scrubs too and of coz we can't scrub too long. sometimes we just get too engrossed n scrub n scrub :D

    i love the fact that this smells yummy! Must try!

  2. I try to buy gentler ones nowadays as I have a tendency to over scrub =_="

  3. When I first looking at it, I thought, the packaging..can be better. But the fact that's so natural n Eco friendly caught my attention. Was hoping to buy a travel size to try it on..to see the difference compare to other scrubs.


Let me know what you think! Thank you :)
