We all would always agree that its not possible to wear make-up everyday or for all occasions (atleast for me). Most of the time, its just a moisturizer and a khol which i am wearing. I like wearing my skin.. But again a flawless skin is a must whether you wear make-up or not. So Skincare is always the top most priority.
For a working mother, you are always on our toes. You need to look good but in seconds. I tend to incline for ready solutions. One of that pre & post party solution is Himalaya Herbals Almond and Cucumber Peel-off Mask.
I have a fan of Himalaya since its inception when it was introduced in market as 'Ayurvedic Concepts'. Love the formulations and hardly disappoints, and this time.....
Product description- (as per site)
Himalaya’s Almond & Cucumber Peel Off-Mask is an all herbal formula that removes blemishes to reveal healthy, glowing skin.
Almond nourishes, soothes and softens the skin. Cucumber tones your facial skin and provides a cooling effect. Pineapple removes impurities and dead skin cells and firms up the skin. Indian Gooseberry has cleansing and antioxidant properties.Key ingredients:
Cucumber contains an enzyme that helps keep facial skin soft, has a healing and soothing effect on damaged skin, and is a natural sunscreen. It acts as a toner and lightens facial skin. The abundance of antioxidants and silica within cucumbers rejuvenate the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth.
Indian Gooseberry, due to its antibacterial and astringent properties, protects against infection. It improves the body’s resistance to infections and moisturizes the skin.
Almond has soothing and softening properties and desensitizes the skin. It also moisturizes and cleanses the skin. The vitamin A in the fruit fights infections.
Pineapple has astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It removes debris, dead skin cells and excess oil from the skin.

Texture and Fragrance-
Cream colored, As like other peel-offs, gelatin based (although not mentioned in ingredient list) gel like texture. it smells like fresh cucumbers....not so strong to annoy and fades soon after applications.My Experience-
My solo motive to purchase peel offs has been to get rid of grime and black-white heads. I had used Everyuth one earlier and was quite satisfied with that. Now i was looking for options and i found this at Himalaya counter. Since herbal formulations always attract me, i immediately picked it up. I am using this since last 6 months. Usually when i am hurry, dont have time for all clean-up, i apply it. Quite easy to spread and you need a 5-10 ml for entire face.
It cleans your face well...all dirt and grime gone. But not traces of make-up etc. Removes Black heads/White heads...yes to some extent and you are left with a feeling of freshness. It is a good option for pre-party prep in minutes and also if you are tired, just want an immediate clean-up, go for it. I never found any reactions or side effects. Infact its soothing and mild. Never found any break outs and also never aggravated my oil glands. My face was clean and oil free till net 7-8 hours.
Over all Nice and good Cleansing formulation for all skin types and that too pocket friendly. Highly Recommended.
