How do you all do?

I’m excited because this is my first blog entry

for the beauty category of this blog and I’ve got a lot of information for you guys on this category (please, keep up). I’ve got a pretty skin (Oily and sensitive) but, so long as I moisturize, cleanse and tone morning and night with the right products, It’s good.

Well, second week of February marked the beginning of a terrible reaction from God knows where. I was frantic and uncomfortable in my skin ??. In the bid to get my skin back to what it used to be or better I got a bunch of products… Some where good, some, so so and others were a totally waste of Money. I’ll be reviewing most of the products to help someone out there who like me couldn’t find reviews on the internet for some products. Mind you! I am no pro!
I’ve mentioned above that I have and oily and sensitive skin. So, this review is my unbiased opinion based on my experience with the product.

Neem and Tumeric both have a lot of benefits to skin and hair.
Neem is a versatile natural product with anti bacterial properties which helps, protect skin and soothe irritation amongst other things.
Tumeric is a natural product that contains bioactive compounds with powerful medicinal properties. It’s got numerous benefits like ability to heal wounds etc.

You can only imagine how glad I was to see this face wash that contains Neem and Tumeric as main ingredients. The face wash is said to fight pimples and prevent marks. Quickly, I gladly purchased it for something between #1500 – #2000 I can’t exactly remember.


  • It is an affordable facial wash
  • It smells good. Neem isn’t exactly famous for good smell, but this wash smells good.
  • It gets my face squeaky clean ( I mean really squeaky clean).
  • Attractive packaging
  • It isn’t overly drying. I didn’t feel my skin too dry after using this wash.


  • It didn’t prevent my pimples.
  • It didn’t fight new marks.
  • Did nothing for my existing pimples or marks
  • It doesn’t form much. You’ll need more product to get a good forming.

So there you have it. Based on my experience, it is a pretty decent face wash. Mind you I’m no pro. I’m speaking based on my experience using this product as a daily face wash for over a month. I’ll rate it 4/10.

Will I repurchase or recommend?
I may repurchase whenever I need something to get my face squeaky clean and would recommend to someone who wants same. I love the smell ?.

Love. Bennymakachi!

    I’m not familiar with neem but I am aware of the skin benefits turmeric has to offer. I love how it’s affordable and contains good ingredients 🙂
    I am improving my skin care routine this year and so far, what I’m lacking is a toner. Got something good in mind? maybe you can review your trusted for me!! Looking forward to the next

      Neem is fantastic. Check google for info.I use neem oil mostly for my natural hair and it does wonders softening and add shine to it. I hate the smell though! It’s smells like spoiled garlic ?. I’ve willreview a good toner that I use and recommend so. I’ve got that in stock for this category.Thanks for reading, darling!

      It does a good job at cleaning the face well though. I like it for that reason. Thanks for visiting!

    I’ve never tried this brand before. I love trying out new cleansers though. I think this is a lovely product!

      March 15, 2017 at 1:04 pm

      I’ll like to try out other products from this brand. It is a lovely product though, no allergies from it.

    It’s so crazy to me that there is a face product that uses neem! The reason I say that is because I use it in my garden and on my houseplants to get rid of nasty bugs and pests. I knew it was safe to use, but I didn’t realize it was THAT safe! I’m totally going to pick up some face wash with neem the next time I see it!

      Is there anything that neem doesn’t do? Such beautiful natural herb. I had no idea it could be used to rid pests. In my country it’s used to treat ailments too.

    Too bad it didn’t work for your pimples hun but the packaging does look cute! I rarely get pimples but when i do i use “ponds acne clear facial foam” and it works like magic. Maybe you should try it? It has similar packaging to this lol

    1. Benita Makachi

      March 15, 2017 at 5:58 pm

      Yea! It’s packaging is super cute and it smells lovely too! Thanks for sharing! I will go hunting for this pond product now. You know how hard it could be getting stuffs like that in Naij.

    Shame that it didn’t prevent any spots. I have the same skin type as you so it probably would not be good for my skin either x

      March 15, 2017 at 5:57 pm

      Oily sensitive skin is the worse. Have you got something that works for you yet?

    I haven’t heard about that face wash before and I don’t think i will buy it. I’m quite happy with the product i currently use. Thanks for the honest opinion of this one:)

      March 15, 2017 at 5:55 pm

      It could work differently on you though! I’m glad you have a cleanser that works well for you. I’m yet to find my holy grail face wash!

    I have seen Himalaya herbals’ products here in the Philippines. I have not purchased it yet because I have not found a review about their products. They have interesting ingredients. I might try their scrub after reading this article. I thought that the brand is from the Philippines but it is from India.

      March 16, 2017 at 9:29 am

      Yea, that’s one of the reasons why I reviewed it. I couldn’t find a review of the product. I’m glad you found this post useful.

    I have never heard of this brand, but it sounds like it would be really good. I am going to have to give it a try.

      They’ve got really attractive packaging and ingredients. You should give it a try.

    I saw this product in most beauty stores here in manila, and I honestly keep.on skipping it. Hhmm makes me intrigue after reading your post. I will try this too!

    1. Benita Makachi

      March 16, 2017 at 9:32 am

      I was intrigued by the two key ingredients and knew instantly I had to give it a try. You should too!

    I guess I’m lucky that I only have to rely on soap and water for clean skin.

    1. Benita Makachi

      March 16, 2017 at 10:11 pm

      Very lucky indeed. Again, you are a man. You don’t use makeup and all I guess.
