Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cream : Review, Swatch

I haven't tried many products from the brand Himalayas nor was I curious until I tried the Himalayas Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cream. I doubt if  this cream is available here as I picked up this one from Dubai. However, the lotion is available here in India but again I am not sure if they are the same products in different forms. I prefer lotion any day but this cream beats my laziness as I love it completely.


Himalaya Intensive Moisturizing Cream comes packed in a tiny green tub that says it has Sweet Almond, Grape Seed and Wheatgerm oil to nourish the dry skin. The fragrance is something I have to talk about. It reminds me of some old cream I used long back [might be school days] and I completely love the fragrance. I like it even when the fragrance goes a bit strong. However it subsides over time. It does not take a long time to sink into my skin at the same time moisturizes my skin well too. I just wonder how they made the fragrance so wow, want to check if the lotion available here smells the same.

  • Cream gets absorbed by my dry skin quickly.
  • Leaves a healthy looking soft skin.
  • If applied once the effect lasts throughout the day.
  • Smells amazing.
  • Regular usage makes skin soft and supple.
  • Ingredients mentioned are quite interesting.

  • The tub packaging ! Very recently I have become a bit uncomfortable using products packed in this form !
  • Availability here.


The Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cream was a purchase from Dubai and I don't remember the cost. [I couldn't find it online too !] The Himalaya Intensive Moisturizing Lotion [the one available here in India] is Rs.140 for 200 ml. I shall try the lotion soon and update if they are the same.


I totally love the Himalaya Intensive Moisturizing Cream for the fragrance and of course for how moisturizing it is. Though I need heavy body butters for winter I would love these for rest of the year. This is one product I am hooked on to and planning to ask my friend to get back ups for me from Dubai.

P.S - I just checked the Himalaya Intensive Moisturizing Body Lotion available here in India and they are totally different :(
