Review: Himalaya Refreshing Lavender and Rosemary Cleansing Bar

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare makes a special kind of cleansing bar. While it's tempting to mistake it for bar soap, it's actually soap-free. I recently tested one of the two bars, the Refreshing Lavender and Rosemary Cleansing Bar.

  • Produces a nice lather
  • Pleasant spice smell reminiscent of ginger cookies
  • Very gentle
  • Made with several organic ingredients
  • Gluten-free and vegan
  • Bar is used up relatively quickly
If you're looking for a gentle, soap-free bar, Refreshing Lavender and Rosemary Cleansing Bar is a nice option. It is a nice alternative to the usual fruit and floral scents, smelling a bit spicy. It cleanses well and would work for both men and women. I appreciate how it rates a very low 1 on EWG's Skin Deep database, so it is true to the claims of gentleness. It's also nice to see that it is clearly identified as gluten-free, which is great for those who have allergies. If you're not a fan of lavender, they also offer an alternative: the Purifying Neem and Tumeric Cleansing Bar. It offers similar performance, with a slightly different scent. The only disadvantage I found is that it was used up fairly quickly, but $5 a bar could be worth it if you want something gentle and soap-free.
