Product Review: Himalaya Herbals at Beauty Base

The nice people at online beauty retailers Beauty Base recently sent me some products to try out, a new range called W7 Very Vegan (review to follow) and some items from the Himalaya Herbals range that they stock.

I am a big fan of aloe vera and use it in gel form on y face every day, so I was happy to try the Himalaya Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash.  I found it had a really pleasant, light scent and bubbled into a gentle lather.  I found the face wash to be gentle and it didn’t strip moisture from my skin.  This formula is a bit lighter than the more heavy duty face washes I tend to go for, but a good enough daily face wash for those who want to treat their skin with some gentleness.

I have to say I was intrigued by the Himalaya Tan Removal Peel-Off Orange Mask.  On principle I believe in embracing my tan/deeper colouring and encouraging others to do the same.  Little Lady didn’t have the same qualms and helped herself to the mask one day after walking home from school on a particularly hot day.  The mask applies easily and dries to a thin film that can be peeled off easily.  It has a nice citrus scent.  But more to the point, I was shocked to find it actually worked.  It seemed to remove some of LL’s tan on using it.  I wasn’t expecting such a visible result at all, but it seemed to work for her.

I tend to go for whitening toothpastes or miswak (tooth stick), so the Himalaya Complete Care Toothpaste was a bit different to what I am used to.  It is not minty, which is unusual for a toothpaste in itself, but it seemed to leave my mouth clean in enough.  I am undecided on this one so far.
