Himalaya Herbals Neem and Turmeric Soap Review
Himalaya Neem and Turmeric soap has a dark green color and a rectangular shape. It comes in a white box printed with product name, ingredients, and features. It does not come in flimsy thin paper packets. It has a thick paper packaging, close to a cardboard packaging. The soap is enclosed in a thin plastic covering. The double packaging protects the product, but the plastic wrapping is an unnecessary environmental pollutant.
The soap has amazing neem and citrus smell. It does not linger on your body after a wash, but my washroom smells beautiful for 5-10 mins after a bath. It has a shelf life of 3 years and a life of 3 months after opening.
The soap has a number of ingredients that provides many benefits to the body:
- Neem: Neem has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that can treat a number of diseases. It treats acne, blackheads, eczema, etc. In addition, it has anti-aging properties.
- Turmeric: Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps acne, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. It prevents dry skin and has anti-aging properties too.
- Lemon: Lemon is used in the cosmetic industry for its skin lightening benefits. It can tighten skin by closing pores and also exfoliates skin to remove dead cells.
- Glycerin: Glycerin helps with dry skin, acne and reduces dull skin. Keep skin moisturized.
Note: It does not contain any animal fat so yay for vegans! 🙂
Himalaya’s main claim for the product is that its antibacterial action helps to keep the skin refreshed and healthy. Neem and turmeric with its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can help improve the general health of the skin. In case you live in a very polluted environment, it can help detoxify your skin.
I have combination skin of normal and dry and largely depends on where I’m living at the moment. I used this soap when I was in Bangalore. I read reviews that the soap was drying for some people. For me, while in Bangalore, I did not find it drying. Note, I have normal skin while in Bangalore, and maybe that’s why it did not dry out my skin, but it may not be the case in case of dry skin. In that case, the glycerin doesn’t do much benefit.
I use the soap both for the body as well as the face. I do not find it very harsh on my face. However, the decision to use soaps on the face is subjective and is generally not recommended. Since the soap contains neem and turmeric, it can help with acne scars. I did not use it for long on my face to get an actual result. But it did not make my skin dry or cause any breakouts.
The soap lathers very well, but at the same time does not melt. I used to use pears and dove prior to this and it would just melt in your hands. It also meant that I would get through one bar in approximately 3 weeks. I used the Himalaya Herbals soap for more than a month and it is still not over. The soap also gives a thick lather without slipping out of my hand. The last thing I want is my soap on the toilet floor. 🤢

Himalaya Neem and Turmeric Soap
Himalaya Neem and Turmeric soap helps keep your skin refreshed and healthy. It is an affordable option available in the market. It is very fragrant, cruelty-free and natural. The soap doesn’t melt easily but lathers well. I will recommend the product for people with normal to oily skin as there are some claims that it drys out the skin.
