Two Neem Face washes in your Anti Acne regime- Jovees Vs Himalaya Herbals

Jovees Neem Face Wash and Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Wash Review

Neem is considered as one of the best anti bacterial agent and works wonders in infections and all kind of skin infections. Indians use it in all possible ways to keep the infections at bay. Just pluck fresh new leaves of neem and grind them to apply on scalp and you will be suprised to find a cleaner dandruff free scalp while applying the same paste on skin would dry up pimples and pustules. Take fresh twig and brush it on your teeth to them free of bacterial attack.
But when this benefit comes in a ready pack, you don't have to put so much of effort just apply and you are sorted! Here is one such solution- Neem face washes. It hardly happens that I miss a Neem face wash and Anti Acne regime is not complete without a neem product.

Today its about two popular Indian Brands-Jovees +Jovees Herbal India  and Himalaya Herbals +Himalaya Store .

Jovees Neem Face wash (INR 145 for 120 ml): Natural Cleanser for Acne and Pimples.
Medicinal properties of neem have been known to Indians since time immemorial. This unique face wash developed to help mitigate pimples, help prevent new ones from forming through its natural therapeutic properties. It shall also help lift away impurities, dull surface cells and improve skin complexion.
Method of Use:
Moisten face. Squeeze out a small amount on your palm. Massage gently on the face and neck. Rinse well and pat dry.
Active Ingredients:
Neem extract, Lemon extract, Tea Tree extract and Rosemary Oil
(here complete ingredient list is missing and that too without % of each ingredients)
This is dark green gel packed in a simple flip cap tube and has a weird soapy smell. Initially I was sceptical whether it would really work. A little amount creates good lather and even gets washed off easily. After  15 days of use, I found that my breakouts are little reduced and minor ones started drying. Although I would not say that this totally prevents break outs but yes my break outs are fewer and my skin was cleaner of all dirt and grime. I could not find much improvement in my whiteheads or Blackheads but again my skin texture was better.

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem face wash- (INR 100 for 100 ml)
Himalaya's Purifying Neem Face Wash is a soap-free, herbal formulation that cleans impurities and helps clear pimples. A natural blend of Neem and Turmeric bring together their antibacterial and antifungal properties to prevent the recurrence of acne over time.
Directions for Use: 
Moisten face and neck. apply small amount of Himalaya Herbals face wash and gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry.
Nimba (Azadirachta Indica) Lf 50 mg, Haridra (curcuma longa) Rz 5mg. 
Inactives- Phenoxyethanol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.
(here the brand has tried to maintain complete transparency & trust by clearly indicating the ingredient list and actives)
Himalaya herbals Face wash light green gel- quite thick like jam. it takes little time to work out lather with the gel but spreads and cleans well then. This again wont smell of neem but then it has added fragrance (atleast better than jovees soapy smell). This has been one of my skin saviours since last 10-12 years and has never failed in keeping my skin free of dirt, oil and infection. Again I wont say that it treats but just helps keep the infections away.
Himalaya Herbals has been one of the most trusted neem face washes in the market and has been proving the same. 

Compared to Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem face wash
Both are gel based cleansers with great results and works well with consistent use. Talking about claims of preventing new pimples- not 100% but are true to an extent. Also these would help you improve skin tone by fading pimple marks to an extent. 
Since both the Face washes are gel based, they are not drying and would not even grease like usual creamy ones. So safe bet for oily-acne prone to normal skin
Jovees Neem Face Wash and Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Wash Review

Overall the two neem face washes- Jovees Neem Face Wash is great option to try but vis-a-vis Himalaya Herbals Purifying face wash, it is little higher in price but still lags behind by a step. Still I would recommend Jovees Neem Face wash for all skin types. 
My Rating for Jovees face wash- 4/5.
