My sister introduced Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream to me. She had been using it for a couple of months and was very satisfied with its result. Seeing her after a long time, even I could feel the difference in her appearance. After childbirth, her complexion had gone down and had become uneven. But as I met her, I could see that her skin looked healthier and even toned. Taking her advice and knowing that it is herbal, I bought this Himalaya product. Packed in a white-pink coloured box the skin-colour cream comes in a frosted glass container with a green coloured lid. It is reasonably priced and satisfied me as a customer. Within a week of its use, I could feel that my skin felt softer than before. The skin tone had improved and it felt hydrated. The best time to apply the cream is just after you take a bath. Apply the dots of this Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream all over your face and then gently rub it in a circular motion as you move upwards. The cream is a one-stop solution in many ways. It is non-greasy and hence can be used as a make-up base. Not only this, I feel that it also acts as a protective layer between my bare skin and the make-up products which I use. So even if the make-up stays for a long time, it does not cause any harmful effects on my skin. The Cinnabloc (herbal sunblock) used in this product protects my skin from UV rays and skin tanning when I need to step out in the sun for a short time. (I would not refer it as a sunscreen and that is why emphasised on stepping out for a short period of time) Other Herbal ingredients like Licorice and White Dammer help in reducing skin pigmentation and lightening it eventually. I also liked the texture of the product. It is soft and creamy but not sticky. However, the product can be put into a more secure container. The glass container of the cream is difficult to carry while travelling with a fear of getting broken. With small kids at home, I also worry about it being shattered accidentally. Nevertheless, having used it for a couple of weeks now, I can definitely recommend it. Adding to that, it is a Himalaya product which is a trusted brand when it comes to No-Side Effects on skin.

Not Worth The Money !!

When it comes to skin tone ,every women is satisfied with her skin tone. Wherever I see a skin lightening complexion creams introduced by my favorite brands I would surely try it. Himalaya Herbals Clear Complextion Whitening Day Cream was one amoung the list But this cream did not meet my expectation.It can just be used as a normal daily use cream, it leaves the skin smooth and supple but it does not do miracles for your skin complextion . There was no change in my complexion .The Ingredient - cinnaloc does not works well for sun protection for the indian climate where sun screen use is a must, If your skin is prone to sun tan you cannot use this cream without a sun screen. My dark spots was less visible but it did completely treat the dark spots . Yes it does make the skin to glow whenever you use the cream,it hydrates and rejuvenates the skin just like normal cream does . I just used this cream as my daily base cream before using my foundation .It didn not tempt me to buy it again just waited until it the jar was over and got back to use my regular moisturizer. Talking about the price No!! it's totally not worth the money. We can buy many other ayurvedic creams which is less expensive than this. You need to use this cream along with a good sunscreen lotion if you are stepping out during summer . Every cream or lotion these days come with a good SPF protection of at least 15+. But Himalaya Skin Whitening does not have any sun protection. It's not travel friendly since it comes in a transparent glass which could easily break and you cannot have it in your travel makeup pouch . Not convenient to use

An ok product from a well know brand

So my mum has come to a stage where she needs a good skincare but she doesn't do it and it's me who always force her to have a good skincare regime. Also she is very particular about putting products on her face and she has rejected so many products which I have given her just because she hasn't heard about it or I was in two minds to apply it. hence I always prefer brands which she is well aware of an brands which I am quite confident about giving good results. So I gifted her this Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream. I chose this particular cream because my mum skin is pigmented and she has some blemishes which needs to be taken care of. When I give it to her she was quite happy after seeing that it's from Himalayas and she happily I was ready to try it out. I explain it to her by I got this whitening and lightening cream as it will help with her pigmentation marks and she understood and started using it. But this product came out to be one disappointment. It acted as a good moisturiser but nothing beyond that. she is using it sense around 4 to 5 months and I cannot see any difference in her blemishes and pigmentation marks. She says her skin has become soft and texture has improve but nothing has changed in regards to the marks on her face. I was very disappointed because when some people trust such an old brand they should really walk on their products too. So she just uses it as regular moisturizer which works good and at least I am happy that she love it as a moisturizer but I was expecting a bit more out of it.

i recently bought Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream from my nearby store. yes it was an impulsive buy, actually i was looking out for something to remove my tan. i have found that fairness wotk well to remove your tan. plus this is herbal brand which is free of parabens and alchohol, so i thought its worth a try. it does contain cetearyl alcohol, for people who don't know it is naturally derived so not harmful. it also contains liquorice which helps to and white dammer an antioxidant which helps to fade away dark spots. it also contains a natural sunblock cinnabloc, which protects the skin from the harsh sun. it comes in glass tub with green cap. personally I find the tub packaging a bit unhygienic. also the glass although it is thick, doesn't make it much travel friendly. the cream is beige in colour. I like it because it acts as a tinted moisturizer, which is perfect for daily use. the texture of the cream is light and smooth. I have very oily skin, but this cream doesn't make my skin more oily, also so it has not caused any breakouts for me. it absorbs pretty easily into my skin and also so then make me all sweaty. now coming to the fairness part or in my case the tan removal part. It does give my skin healthy glow but I am yet to see an improvement in my complexion. to be honest it's been only 20 days since I am using this product so maybe it is too early to expect a change in complexion. it does protect from the Sun as it has not tanned my skin further even though I I am frequently outdoors in the sun. I also like the fact that it will both oily, combination and dry skin. very few creams have the ability to suit all skin types.

Best suitable for dry skin

I am generally not in favor of fairness creams, or rather any products that promote fairness. Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream however caught my attention in a mall while shopping for some other cosmetics for myself. I enquired the lady at the counter how well does it work for men and she started showing me various creams meant for men. I wanted to buy this for my husband who was facing severe breakouts and having a hard time with his dry skin and moreover his office travels on bike made his skin much darker and he started having pigmentation on his face. I went ahead and bought this for my husband. He was hesitant initially as he had tried a lot of products only to make his face worse with blemishes and dark spots. After a lot of speculation, he thought of giving it a try and started applying it daily before leaving for office. The cream was quite light and blended well with his dry and rough skin. A month later, his skin actually improved. The blemishes and dark spots were gone and his face was looking much better than what it was a month ago. The licorice present in the cream seemed to have worked well on the dark spots and blemishes. White dammer used in the cream reduced the pigmentation and evened the skin tone. The cream is surely free of alcohol and parabens and hence, there were no visible side effects. The herbal sunblock Cinnabloc provides a great UV protection from the sun and prevents in darkening of the skin. A month later when we saw positive results, my husband was quite happy bidding adieu to his dry skin which gave him a hard time. The only drawback is that the cream comes in a glass tub which is not travel friendly and quite vulnerable. The tub needs to be used carefully and cannot be just thrown in the closet after use. Most importantly it has to be kept out of the reach of children to avoid any accidents.

Nice and effective day cream

Himalaya Clear Complexion Whitening Day cream has licorice and white dammer as its key ingredients. Licorice helps in lightening the skin and fade dark spots and blemishes. White Dammer exhibits anti-oxidant properties which helps reduce pigmentation and gives an even skin tone. It is suitable for dry to combination skin and not meant for oily skin. The cream comes in a tub form which is not very hygienic. The tub form usually exposes the contents to air and various pollutants which is not good. I would have liked it better if it would be packed in a tube with a flip cap. Tubs form of packaging is not very travel friendly and easy to carry. The cream has an off white colour and has a nice fragrance. It has a smooth and light texture. It spreads easily and gets absorbed into the skin very quickly. It makes the skin soft and smooth. It does not have alcohol and parabens which makes it safe to use every day. It moisturises the skin and doesn’t make it too oily. The cream sets good and forms a good base with a little bit of powder. It provides a natural sun protection so no need of applying a sunscreen separately. It doesn’t help improve the complexion as it claims to do. My sister used it for quite some time. She has a normal to dry skin and it suited her. She liked the cream and was happy with its results. She is planning to buy it again. Overall, I would say that it is pocket friendly, the packaging is nice but it would be better if it comes in tube form which would make it easy to carry. Its colour, texture and fragrance are pretty good. It is good for daily use.

I was facing quite a few skin problems from a few months back and one day I saw the advertisement of Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream on TV and thought of giving it a try one. I was any which case looking for a day cream that I could wear before stepping out of my house. Being a big and herbal brand Himalaya I expected better results out of it but I was completely disappointed as this cream was not helping me much in getting my skin feel better. It is just like an ordinary cream that we buy local with no whitening effects. My complexion was never changed even after its regular and constant applications. My skin tone has become dull and uneven over the period of time. It is a complete wastage of money for me. Again as every one got different skin it might probably work on others but not me for sure. In every application of this cream .it used to leave a greasy texture on my skin which I hated like anything. For sure it is not a daily use cream. In addition to this it does not have any sun screen properties. In todays time when the sun is scorching so much outside you are suppose to wear a sun screen inside the house too how can you think of getting out of the house with no sun screen. The cream should have been better if it would have some sun blocking elements and very few would apply a sun screen separately after applying a cream. Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream might probably work good in winters because of the greasy texture and no sun blocking elements in it. After using this cream for some time now I could hardly see any changes on my skin.

Not worth a try!

Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream has a very light texture. Coming from the very famous brand Himalaya, this product is not for an everyday use. Everyone in our country would have heard of the brand Himalaya. It vouches to use herbals in their day to day products. They have also been successful with quite a lot of variety in their products. I personally love their products as they are not heavy to the pockets neither are they hard to get. The whitening cream is a very basic day cream. For the competition that this product has in the market, Himalaya should have worked a little more here. The cream comes in a glass box which has own own risks. Definitely not to be kept in reach of kids. One mighty fall and the cream goes to the dustbins. For the dry skin this day cream was not that great. It’s non greasy. But then the skin does not absorb the moisture the day cream is trying to give. Again it’s a person to person need here. For me its didn’t work as a day cream neither it worked as a skin lightening cream. Also, the cream is not a sun protector. If I had a day cream with SPF in it, I would rather use that as a two in one cream. Sun screen is a must for the heat waves that the sun is sending to us these days. I cannot imagine surviving without them. This product probably can do better during the winters than the summer. Didn’t work on my dark spots. The areas around my nose and chin have always been my pain parts. This whitening cream failed to cover them or for that matter it didn’t work on it. My dark spots remained as it is where I first left them.

Nice texture but not so effective
4.5/5

PROS

Light texture

Mild smell

No parabens

Gives dewy glow

No alcohol

CONS

Not effective in lightening the skin


I have always been aware of Himalaya Herbals. I think every Indian does. As a matter of fact, I believe there is or was at least one product of this brand in your household. There are some products that I personally really liked as well as some that I don’t. When I saw this Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream, I bought it with the hope of this cream lightening my dark scars from pimples.

The whole look of this cream is very standard, and the texture is amazing. It is unlike any other fairness creams I have encountered. I say this because the texture is so light and it glides on my skin so smoothly and easily. I use it every day before walking out of the house.

It has been a while since I started using this day cream. I am on my second tub. Since I use it every day, the quantity is too less for me. And I think for its price, the quantity should be a little more.

The claims of it lightening the skin are not entirely true. But it does give a dewy glow that my dry skin adores. My pimple scars are also lightened a little bit. No drastic changes but I like how this cream makes my skin smooth and clear. It makes my skin look clean and soft like a baby’s.

Bad packaging
2/5

PROS

Light texture

Mild smell

CONS

Inconvenient packaging


I love everything about Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream. But the packaging is very inconvenient. First, the cream comes in a glass container, then the screw cover and the lid inside. The container is unhygienic, the inner lid makes the application messy.

I am so negative about this packaging because, while I was trying to use the cream, the container just slipped from my hand and it got shattered in different pieces. It was annoying.

Great for reducing acne marks

PROS

No harmful chemicals

Lightens acne scars and marks

Blends smoothly

Does not make the skin oily

CONS

Not effective in lightening the skin


I have acne-prone skin, and my old pimples have left behind a few scars and marks. This cream has done some wonders with my scars and marks. I use this cream as a night cream as well, after cleansing because it is so light in texture. I must say the difference is visible.

Not a good product for sun protection
3/5

PROS

Light texture

Tones down tanning

CONS

Not ideal for summer

Unhygienic packaging


After a week of using this cream, I am disliking it because it does not contain any SPF. I live in a city with sweltering weather, and SPF is a must! I bought this because it claims to give natural sun protection but I think it is not strong enough. It does help in toning down the already tanned skin but not much in preventing it. This cream might be good for winter season but not much for summer.

Non greasy but not effective as a skin lightening product
4.3/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Blends well

No parabens

Best for combination skin

CONS

Not effective in lightening the skin


This non-greasy whitening cream is a blessing for my combination skin. It offers the correct hydration without making my skin oily, and after two months of use, I will say that it is one of the best products from Himalaya Herbals.
