Which is your favorite face pack??? No, I am not talking about home made one. If I have to ask you, which is your face pack from the ones you get in market… which one would it be??? Mine is this one.
Recently, I wanted to buy a new face pack as I was bored with the ones I have. But not in a mood to spend much on one.
I have heard a lot about the brand Himalaya, which is known for its good products with safe ingredients. Plus prices are comparatively low for the quality of their products. I have used their body lotion before. It had turned out to be a good one. So, after looking at different shelves in the shop for face packs, going through different types of face packs of same range which are meant to serve different skin purposes, picked up this one. Lets see whether this pocket friendly product turned out to be skin friendly or not.
Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack
135 INR for 100 gm (Affordable I say)
You can try out smaller version for testing purpose too. 50gm will cost you 75 INR.
What Company Claims???
Himalaya Herbals Fairness Face Pack lightens and evens skin tone, reduces dark spots and blemishes, reduces visibility of dark circle, nourishes skin and moisturises the skin. It is enriched with natural ingredients like walnut which act as natural exfoliator helping remove dead cells, impurities and black heads. Himalaya Herbals Fairness Face Pack help to clean the skin surface making skin look soft, healthy and supple.
Exfoliates the skin without being harsh on the skin.
Made with natural ingredients.
Seems to be safe…
Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra) Juglans regia(Walnut, Akschota) Crocus sativus (Saffron, Kumkuma)
A very first reason to opt for Himalya face pack is, apart from being good ingredients it is also a hygienic packing. The tube packing helps in maintaining hygiene because we don’t have top dip fingers in it to take out the product. Like we do in case of tub packing.
This off white and green combo plastic tube has flip cap. Which is tight and thus it can be carried while we travel. Also, you can squeeze out required quantity of face pack without having to worry of any spillage or wastage.
Strangely it smells like lacto calamine lotion.
It is creamy.
How to Use:
Apply it evenly on face leaving mouth and eyes(obviously. And yes nostrils. Because of the obvious reason haha) Leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Remove with wet sponge/towel. Rinse with cool water.
I am suggesting to use towel because this face pack is thick in texture. Its not easy to wash with water in one go.
Something that made me pick this face pack is it’s ingredients. Turmeric has antibacterial and healing properties, walnut is good for scrubbing. Kesar/Saffron is the queen of home remedies when it comes to skin.
I applied this on my face. It feels like a thick layer of cream on your face. It doesn’t give you any cooling or burning effect. Just let it stay on face for 15-20 minutes. It doesn’t really dry fast as it’s thick in texture. But let me tell you one thing, a common mistake we all do when we apply face packs. Not all the face packs need to be left till they dry. The idea here is to get most of benefits from face pack not to dry the face pack on our faces. Some face packs, as and when they dry they absorb all the natural oil from your face too…!!!
So post the specified time, tried washing it with water. But washing cream away is not an easy task. Patches of cream are still be there on face. So using a cotton pad or towel would be more handy. Plus using cotton pad or a cotton towel has the benefit of scrubbing also. Thus bye bye dead cells.
Once I had cleaned my face completely, I liked the glow it gave to my skin. Even though it didn’t really last that long, but that instant glow is worth trying this face pack for. Plus it didn’t dry my skin like some other packs and left skin super cleaned. #HappyMe
As per as skin lightening is concerned, I didn’t see much of that. It does add that glow and instant brightening. But no long lasting skin lightening benefits as such.
Good things about Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack :

Not so good things about Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack :
- Glow doesn’t really lasts longer
- Can’t clean only with water. Need cotton pads to clean it completely from face.
Will I repurchase???
Yes(but once I finish all my stock of other face packs). I liked the way it adds glow and brightens skin tone in one use.
Will I recommend???
Yes. Its within budget, brightens skin tone, adds glow. I guess it’s a good deal for the price we are paying. Ideal to use before any special events to attend.
