I am a last-minute person, always on my toes hence I keep a lot of thing handy for me which I might need in the middle of a situation. Being a marketer, I am mostly traveling for business, either struggling in the daily office routine or a surprise client meeting pops up towards the end of the day. Apart from this I also love to explore the isolated places, so my holidays happen to be in some ‘not go far’ camping sites or a trek with fewer resources. In such cases, one of the essentials is to carry facial wipes along with you.

Facial wipes are one of the 10 Things You Should Always Heep In Your Bag, a must-have thing in your makeup kit. Facial wipes are very useful for cleaning excess dirt and oil from face and neck. They instantly hydrate the skin and helps to reduce oil, hence you feel fresh, all the more.

Today I am talking about a very interesting product I happen to test and found it worth recommending. A soothing herbal cleanup and refreshing glow to your skin, this product is a must try. Himalaya has recently launched facial wipes which it claims to be non-alcoholic. Himalaya is known well for its range of herbal healthcare products with ayurvedic ingredients. I liked some of their products and this new product was worth a try, as expected.

So jumping directly on the subject, there are two variants available in the market:

Moisturizing Aloe Vera Facial Wipes
This has the magical Aloe Vera and Fig as the key ingredient. Aloe Vera is rich in polysaccharides that help hydrate and soften skin and Fig is known for its antioxidant and skin conditioning properties and helps make the skin feel soft and supple.

Purifying Neem Facial Wipes
This has the strong cleansing effect and is a better choice for acne-prone skin type. Key ingredients include Neem and Turmeric which are best recommended for their antibacterial properties. Neem tackles bacteria from the root and prevents pimples and blemishes and Turmeric is a natural healer for skin, known since ages.
