Himalaya Fresh Start Face Wash Blueberry Packaging, Texture and Fragrance

The packaging is a blue, plastic tube with a flip top cap. The packaging colour is in sync with the face wash variant that is blueberry. The fragrance as such of the face wash isn't that strong. Although it is like berries, kind of sweet fragrance. It is refreshing, less noticeable as well as doesn't linger much. The consistency of the face wash isn't runny and isn't too thick. It dispenses easily and adequately from the tube. The texture of the Himalaya Fresh Start Face Wash Blueberry is smooth with some cellulose beads in it.

Himalaya Fresh Start Face Wash Blueberry Review

The face wash foams nicely into a frothy sort instead of a bubbly one. The face wash is mild face wash especially when you are using it in hard water supply. I need to use a a little extra quantity when am using this face wash in the evening. During the mornings a tiny amount is enough to clean the face.

The face wash is non drying for my oily acne prone skin. My extra oily t-zone and the area adjacent to nose doesn't get cleansed properly as the face wash just glides on that area and doesn't actually cleanse it unless I rub it. The beads in the face wash actually don't perform the job of scrubbing as such and I absolutely feel the addition of beads is unnecessary.

The face wash is a mild one and will also be suitable for AM routine. I sometimes use it for my morning as well as evening routines and it works perfectly to give me cleansed skin. The non drying effect of the face wash makes it suitable to be even used twice per day. The face wash makes my skin soft and smooth while giving me a squeaky clean feeling.

It doesn't irritate any broken skin or any active acne as such. However the mild cleansing effects might not be sufficient enough to use this face wash as a second cleanse in double cleansing.

The fragrance of the face wash is refreshing and not too strong. It doesn't even linger much. The face wash overall speaking is value for money and very affordable drugstore based face wash.
