Himalaya Almond and Cucumber Peel Off Mask Review


I love Himalaya as a skin treatment brand. Indeed, I have used their shampoos, face wash (I love the Neem one) and scrubs. So I will confess I had high expectations from this product. However, high expectations do not always deliver, does it? I learned that from this product, slightly in the hard way.

Himalaya Almond and Cucumber Peel Off Mask Review+ himalaya

The Himalaya Almond-Cucumber face pack, which is supposed to peel off my blemishes and firming up my skin do the job halfway. On one hand, it does tone up my skin slightly but on the other hand… well, read on for the review.


Himalaya Claims: “Almond & Cucumber Peel-off Mask unclogs pores and peels away blemishes to reveal healthy, glowing skin. Almond nourishes, soothes and softens your skin. Cucumber tones your facial skin and provides a cooling effect. Pineapple removes impurities and dead skin cells and firms up the skin. Indian Gooseberry has cleansing and antioxidant properties.” It contains Cucumber, Indian Gooseberry and Almond.

First things first, let’s look at the bright points with this pack. The first thing which attracts me is the flip-top cap. Everyouth anyone? I remember their peel off orange face masks when I look at this product. And yes, the application method is the same for both – apply an even layer all over moistened face, let it dry out totally before peeling. The last time I put this mask on, and fell asleep for half an hour. Woke up, and gently peeled off the mask. The mask has a light scent so people with sensitive noses can totally use it. I like the fact that it dries up within 20 minutes or so and then is easy to peel off. It is a greenish yellow colored runny fluid that can be spread and applied easily. However, I would suggest you use your fingers rather than the brush, as this particular thing totally messed up my face mask brush.

After application and drying and peeling, do wash off your face to ensure all your dirty icky extra bits are removed.

I don’t know, my biggest problem with this mask seems to be the fact that it removes my dead skin and actually tightens up my pores, but on the other hand, it does NOTHING for my blemishes. I have used this pack halfway through the tub and have come to this conclusion. NOTHING is the word. My mother claims that she thinks my skin looks more toned, which I am agreeing with, but no blemish removal. It also dries my skin out (though it has not broken me out, which is a blessing) and I have to moisturize afterwards.

I am okay with that I guess. However, I am not okay with this product messing up my brush.

So, a quick summation of the pros and cons?

What I like about Himalaya Almond and Cucumber Peel Off Mask :

  • Flip top cap and nice travel-friendly tube
  • Cleans up my face
  • Tightens pores
  • Very decently priced
  • Does not break me out
  • Easy to apply

What I don’t like about Himalaya Almond and Cucumber Peel Off Mask :

  • Messes up my face pack brush
  • Dries my skin out
  • Removal is a pain if you have thin skin
  • Does nothing for my blemishes


Ratings: 3.5/5

Will I Repurchase?

The price of this product is very reasonable, so I basically have no complaints. However, I would stick to other packs, as this one is just too much work for lazy me, for example my favorite is my Vedic Line Neem and Brahmi pack and Blossom Kochhar Glossy Pack.
