Himalaya Acne-n-Pimple Cream - Review

Recent bad diet and low in-take of water gave me a bout of acne and I went back to a cream that had helped me earlier - the Himalaya Acne-n-Pimple Cream.

This is a quick review about this relatively effective and cheap cream that actually works.

Himalaya Acne-n-Pimple Cream

Himalay Acne-n-Pimple Cream

The cream comes in a travel friendly easy to use no-nonsense tube with a twist cap. A tube of 20gm is available at a price of Rs 45. The cream is creamy thick and has a non-greasy texture

How To Apply Acne-n-Pimple Cream

All you have to do is wash your face and apply it over the pimples. If you apply it over night you will see that the pimple reduces in size. With regular use over the pimple you will see the pimple 80-90% healed after which it seems to stop working. It does not work on very small pimples but only seems to work on pus-filled or larger acne. It makes the skin feel very smooth and soft - so on some days I use it in place of a moisturizer (on my oily skin)
If you apply too much amount on your face it can feel a bit weird n dry. But if you apply to a just washed face and apply the right amount it feels great. The amount shown in the swatch is almost enough to cover the entire face.

Himalaya Acne-n-Pimple Cream
I normally would use benzoyl peroxide but that is medicinal and cannot be used when skin is already dry and parched (in winters) without topping it up with a moisturizer. And it smells too so when the acne is not too bad I fall back on my Himalaya Acne-n-Pimple cream.

What I like

  • works on larger pimples
  • helps heal the skin and pimples in around 3 days
  • works overnight to reduce size of pimples
  • does not leave a medicinal smell on the face
  • makes skin feel smooth
  • is cheap and readily available (at chemist shops as well)

What I don't like

  • does not work on smaller acne
  • does not completely heal the acne

I will repurchase this until I find something that works better. Have you tried this acne-n-pimple cream?

    1. Acne or Pimple is a BIG Problem that crosses the borders of age, gender, race and social status. Benzac AC is a topical water-based gel wiyh its active ingredient benzoyl peroxide perfect for the treatment of acne. Benzac AC aparts from its acne-treatment counterparts is that it does not contain alcohol and it is fragrance free. Read more at:

    1. Hi Tony, if you have never used anything on your acne before I would suggest to start by trying out a regular cleansing routine - and a face pack once a week. If Himalaya products are available to you then try their neem face wash and the neem face pack.
      In case these are not available let me know where you live so that I can suggest something based on the products available in your area.

  4. i've been suffering from acne/pimples since forever so I have stupid large pores and scarring. I purchaced this cream in Kerala and i've been using it for one month, each morning and evening. But i'm not seeing much improvement, it is better than before though.. I hope it helps if i keep using it for longer period of time. I will use it until it runs out, then I will try using VICCO turmeric skin cream. I will let you know what works best for me.

    1. I remember using the original VICCO turmeric as when I was around 13 years old and it did not help - the newer formula might be better but I can't promise since I haven't used it since. The problem with my skin was that my skin was very oily and hence the cream did not work.
      If you're acne is extremely sever I suggest consulting a dermatologist to control the acne before it spoils your skin further.

      You can also try a homemade pack of methi seeds - check the DIY section of the blog for details - that pack is completely safe and does help.

  5. Does it remove pimple scars? I have some scars and I was thinking of using this. And how long do I have to keep it before washing it off? Should I apply it on only the affected area or the whole face? Thanks...

    1. if you only have scars then I wont recommend using this. This is mainly for acne not the scars. For scars try using a natural remedy like applying plain yogurt as a face pack - leave it on for half an hour and wash off. If the scars are deep please consult a dermatologist for a suitable AHA based medication

    1. Hi Omar, if your condition is really bad I suggest visiting a dermatologist - they can help control the problem at the root cause of it. For topical treatments try natural products, Himalaya range of products are good to start with.

    3. Hello i have used the himalaya acne n pimple cream and it works. But you will need to use the acne facial kit of himalaya for best results such as purifying neem face wash , purifying neem scrub and purifying neem face pack. It really works.

    1. Hi Suraj, if you are looking for something just to work on dark marks and not pimples then this is not the right product. I would suggest you try out the Auravedic face polish that I reviewed http://www.ourexternalworld.com/2013/02/aura-vedic-sandal-turmeric-skin-polish.html

  13. Parabens are preservatives commonly included in skincare products. The amount that may be present in a product is limited by federal guidelines, because the ingredients are known allergens, irritants and skin toxicants.
