In Mar 2015, I went to visit Kochi city. It was pretty nice. A fun one day city trip with my sister in law & her family. During the course of this trip, I came across a stand alone Himalayan Herbals store. After browsing through all products, I picked up two products : The Refreshing Fruit face pack, which I reviewed earlier and the Nourishing Skin cream.
I generally love Himalaya products since it contains 100% herbal extracts. The Nourishing cream contains Aloe Vera, which nourishes & moisturizes, Winter Cherry, & Indian Kino Tree extracts rich in antioxidants, protects and nourishes the skin.
The cream is white in color and has a light, non-greasy texture. It is indeed nourishing. This is a great cream for the winter. I say so because during summer when you apply this on the face, it feels like your face is literally melting off. The cream just sits on the skin, gives an extremely oily look and on top of that when you sweat, the cream just melts off!. However, on cool days the cream is really great. It absorbs super fast into the skin and gives a youthful, nourished & supple looking skin. This is truly a winter skincare product.
When you lift the lid of the plastic tub, you can see that it’s sealed with foil. I have been using it on and off since March and I am still only 1/4th into the tub. I went for the bigger tub since in price comparison the bigger one seemed to give more value. However, since I can use it only on cool days, I am kinda stuck with this tub that seems to last forever!. I do like things that last like 2 or 3 months but in this tub’s case, it might be years before it finishes. Being a blogger, I love to keep on trying new skincare products and I rarely buy new products when I have a good amount of products with me, so as to avoid wastage. So, if you wish to try this product, I highly recommend that you go for the smaller tub that’s between 100 – 150ml.
Price : Rs. 235 (AED 13) for a tub containing 250 ml.
One negative about this product is that it contains parabens (Methyl paraben & Propyl paraben).
