False claims

Very thick texture

I bought this fairness cream because the price deal was really good and it’s a Himalaya product. I was all up for it. The packaging is sleek and feminine. It has a touch of pink and green on the cover. It comes with a screw cap and a tube container. Its texture is creamy and thick, and it has a pearly orange color.

I have a love-hate relationship with this product. I like the fact that it is affordable, but when it comes to effectiveness, it’s a false claim. First of all, the texture is very thick. You have to rub it several times for it to blend in and get absorbed.

This fairness cream claims that it moisturizes without leaving the skin feeling greasy. While the greasy part is true, the moisturizing part is not. People with dry skin will not prefer it as this cream tends to make the skin very dry and patchy, which will make you want to apply another moisturizer over it. After blending it in, my skin felt stretchy. My skin type is oily, so I like its matte effect, but I can’t imagine someone with dry skin using this cream. It will be horrific for them. But I can’t deny the fact that I like the dryness because I hate my oily skin. Another drawback is that this fairness cream does not come with SPF, so another sunscreen needs to be applied over it.

Now coming to the fragrance, it is awful! It smells like a cheap saffron cosmetic product. It’s disappointing that Himalaya, a brand which is very well known and has a line of many promising products, would even sell this fairness cream in the first place. In the end, it all comes down to quality and not quantity! Period!

PROS

Reduces acne

Makes skin soft

CONS

Makes skin oily

No increased fairness


I have terrible acne. Whenever I use even a dash of some product, my skin breaks out. It’s like an explosion on my face. I wasn’t too keen on trying this product because while I’d heard of it, I’d never heard of its results. Long story short, my mother convinced me to try this product and am I glad that she did. This cream helped me get better skin. My skin is supple and glows. There’s a natural radiance that it gives. It has helped reduce dark circles along with the puffiness under the eyes. It has reduced my acne a lot. Love it!

PROS

Makes skin smooth

Reduces puffiness

CONS

Does not eliminate dark circles

The cream has not helped reduce dark circles but my skin is smoother and soft. It feels so good. It has also reduced puffiness underneath the eyes, not sure if it’s made to do that. My face is radiant. It feels incredible.

PROS

Makes skin soft

Eliminates dryness

Removes dark spots and blackheads

CONS

Makes skin oily


The cream moisturized my face. I had dry skin and you could see white powder-like patches on my face. No matter what cream I used, the patches would reduce for a while and then return. But, Himalaya’s fairness cream has really moisturized my face. The cream comes in a white and pink printed tube with a cap. The tube is housed in a white and pink cardboard box that has the instructions for use and list of ingredients on it. The cream is white. It is slightly thick in consistency. It provides a non-greasy finish. It has a pleasant fragrance. My face is fresh and has a glow. It is fairer as well. It has also reduced dark spots and blackheads. The cream is a tad bit too greasy though.
