Himalaya Haul // Budget Ayurvedic Skincare and Herbs

Himalaya Haul // Budget Ayurvedic Skincare and Herbs in India

Few days back while talking to a reader I realized this - there aren't many budget natural products that I have tried. I have used Khadi but they are tough to source. So, when people ask me for a budget solution to skincare, I end up with nothing much. Hence, I decided to try budget brands which are easily available. I identified 3 such brands which I will explore in coming months. 

The first one being Himalaya Herbals. Himalaya Herbals is easily available not only in India but also has its presence in around 180 countries! Did you know that? I got to know that Himalaya Herbals is also available in Russia when they reposted my photo on their Instagram!

So, here is what I picked up


Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack, Mositursing Aloe Vera Face Wash, Almond & Cucumber Peel-Off, Refreshing and Clarifying Toner, Rumalaya, Manjistha, Coconut & Cucumber Soap, Acne-n-Pimple Cream

  • Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack (Rs 70 for 50ml) - I have used it earlier and have liked it. Not perfect but good. I will let you know all in the review.
  • Himalaya Herbals Mositursing Aloe Vera Face Wash (Rs 55 for 50ml) - Loving this a lot. Utterly moisturizing, no SLS or SLeS, low-foaming and non drying.
  • Himalaya Herbals Almond & Cucumber Peel-Off(Rs 70 for 50ml) - The sales assistant was completely against me buying this. But, it has be months I have tried any peel-off. LOL
  • Himalaya Herbals Refreshing and Clarifying Toner (Rs 80 for 100ml) - An alcohol free toner because many wanted me to try alcohol free toner.
  • Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub (Rs 15 for 12g) - Liked the idea - these are good for two usages. Good for travel.
  • Himalaya Herbals Rumalaya (Rs 70 for 60ml) - This is for my granny. She is already on doctor prescribed medicines. I suggest her to use oils instead of ointments for immediate relief. I gave her pure eucalyptus oil which she loved.  It helped her get relief from pain. Sadly, I am not able to source it again (the recurring problem with most natural brands!). So, got Rumalaya for her. Hope she gets equal/better relief from this. Do let me know if you know any other natural remedy.
  • Himalaya Herbals Pure Herbs Manjistha (Rs 100 for 60 tablets) - Manjistha is Ayurveda's most popular and favorite blood purifier. I wanted Neem which was out of stock. The sales assistant suggested this to me. I am supposed to take 2 daily but as I am taking this on my own without Doctor's prescription, I will restrict myself to one and skip after 2 days (giving body time to adjust to a new thing). I have other herbs in mind which I will buy from other brands. Do let me know if you have any suggestions
  • Himalaya Herbals Coconut & Cucumber Soap (Rs 30) - Coconut with cucumber. Can it get anymore refreshing than that?
  • Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream (Rs 45) - I do not have any hopes from this but Rs 45 does not hurt much. Let's try and see.

All this under Rs 500. Talk about being within budget now!

I also got an 10% discount on everything when I purchased from their stand alone shop. It was not clear to me how I got the discount - something about buying two products from same range...

They also have an organic range - Organique - which I do not think is sold in India. God knows why...
Have you tried Himalaya products? Which ones do you like? Which one do you like me to review first?

Do let me know which natural brand you like in India

Love,
Shayoni
