Khadi Gold Thermo Herb Face Pack
My craze for face packs makes me pick up products with unusual names. I had heard a lot about khadiÂ beingÂ herbal & ayurvedic based. I was eager to try something from this brand becauseÂ IÂ completely vouch for natural skin care products, but khadiÂ is not easily available in Bangalore so I got this one online.
About Khadi Gold Thermo Herb Face Pack:-

- Directions to use: After massage apply extra cream on the face, leave eye brows, eye circles & lips. Give a fine layer of cotton round the hair line, for avoiding the hair grip in the pack. Make a thick paste with cold water (in winter for better results use warm water) and apply it immediately. No face movement till dry. Wash the face with cold water & wipe it off very gently.
- Price & Quantity: Rs 160/- for 100 gms.
My experience with Â Khadi Gold Thermo Herb Face Pack:-
Packaging: The Thermoherb face pack comes in a steelÂ tin whichÂ looks very earthy & indian. The lidÂ fits quite well. I like the simple packaging because it comes in a tin unlike other face packs, but it’s not very convenient.
Texture: It comes in a fine powder form with very few granules in it.
WellÂ more than a ReviewÂ I would say this is a WARNING Post, what makes me say so? read on to find out…
Like I said I am very enthusiastic to use face packs,Â as soon asÂ I received myÂ parcel I grabbedÂ it &Â read the instructions & the ingredient list. Honestly, the directions to use wasÂ superÂ confusing & I did not understand why we needed to massage…since all face packs are to be applied directly on to the face I thought the cream that they were referring to was the pack itself, so I expected it to be a creamy face pack. The mention of Plaster of Paris in the ingredient list freaked me out for a second, butÂ then again I thought it must be like how they use something called the Xanthan gum in scrubs, so I thoughtÂ IÂ need not worry. I was so eager to use it that I justified all my doubts & went ahead with it.
I made a thick paste of it as mentioned, applied it all over my face & started to gentlyÂ massage
in a circular motion. It feltÂ soft &Â creamy with a few gritty granules. As I massaged the pack started to harden, so I stopped & waited for it to dry. Within a few minutes it hardened like cement & cracks started to appear.Â I realized I was terribly wrong to have had put the pack on my face, so I started to splash water on my face desperatelyÂ to get it off. But it just wouldn’t come off, my skin felt taut & stretched. I further panicked & started to pour copious amounts of almond oil to get it off. It started to come off in small pieces, but I had toÂ tug & pull to take it off.Â It wasÂ hurting my fine facial hair so much that I had to keep taking aÂ break in-between. It took me almost an hour to completely wash it off…I had a HORRYFYING EXPERIENCE! I just wanted to throw itÂ away immediately!
I hadÂ got this face pack sometimeÂ in OctoberÂ last year, but after this experienceÂ I kept it away for a long, long time. Had the thought of getting rid of it many times but IÂ still wanted to give it a second chance. So I checked for reviews online, but didn’t find any. WhenÂ I re-read the instructions on the tin I realised my mistake. I was supposed use a massage cream first & then apply the pack. Finally I understood! ButÂ in spite of knowing that I was still sceptical about it,Â yet I did go ahead for the purpose of the review…
I don’t use massage creams, well, because I don’t need it, so I used the Clean & clear
moisturizer instead. I massaged it well & reapplied the moisturizer, over which I applied the pack. It started toÂ harden & crackÂ within 10 minutes. Within 15 minutesÂ the face pack wasÂ almost fullyÂ dry. This time around my skin didn’t feel stretched out, rather it felt firm. But washing it off was again very tedious, though it came off more easily than the last time it still took really long & loads of water to get the pieces off my face. Specially near the brows & side locks I had to scrub it off. It did hurt a little to get off the small bits on my cheeks.
After washing off myÂ face looked fresh & clean, pores were refined & my skin was soft & supple. The moisturizer
was well absorbed thus I didn’t require immediate moisturizing. But the results are nothing extraordinary, nothing that our humble multani mitti & rose water cannot do.
All in all the Khadi thermoherb face pack
gave me a very hard time. After this review, it is going right down the drain, I will just keep the tin to store something & to remind me to never ever pick this product again,Â even if it is for free!
What I like aboutÂ Â Khadi Gold Thermo Herb Face Pack:
- The cute steel tin
- Pore refining.
What I don’t like aboutÂ Â Khadi Gold Thermo Herb Face Pack:
- Confusing instructions
- Not travel friendly(actually not user friendly)
- Not ready to use
- Very tedious to wash off
- Hurts the skin very badly
- Does not suit any skin type.
Recommendation: No way! After my HORRID experience,Â I would warn everyone to stay far away from it.
Would I repurchase: Out of the question!
