If you are reading my blog regularly then you will be aware that I am getting more and more addicted to natural products.I got to try a few samples from an Australian Brand called Nimveda and they deal with luxurious ayurvedic products. I was sent this neem range to review.
The advantages of neem are widely known. Nimveda is derived from the words neem and ayurveda. Neem is a tree which grows well in our country India but it also grows in some regions of Australia.

My Take on the Product:
Lets start from the packaging. The packaging is travel friendly, sturdy and seems luxurious. The fonts in the label disappeared only because of the tape used to cover the parcel.I love the fact that all these products are travel sized and easy to carry. All the bottles are transparent and comes with offwhite/cream label with a slight golden tint. The soap comes in a carton packaging with similar labels and tint of brown. The bottles have a “Press to Open” kind of nozzle.
As the products contain a high concentration of neem or clay, it is likely that they will settle to the bottom. The first time I pressed , nothing came out of the bottle. I shaked it well and then the product came out. It is a pain to squeeze the product out. So I take it out via the big opening inside.
All the products have a typical neemy clay smell but it is not pungent. It is a mild pleasant scent and not bitter like other neem products. The scent lingers around for sometime and then fades away. All the products have a thick creamy texture and they are semi runny consistency wise.
The shampoo is perfect for daily use. It is gentle and acts mildly. It cleanses my hair well. It lathers decently. My hair looks better after using this range. It is soft and manageable. It makes my hair healthy. It works well in conjuction with the conditioner. It has provided so much relief to my flaky scalp. it feels that my scalp is non itchy now and free from dandruff .
I oiled my hair and then tried the shampoo. I was worried if it could get the excess oil out but to my surprise it worked well. It removed excess oil and my scalp felt clean. It took more amount to cleanse my medium length hair. I used up more than 1/4 th of the amount first time.
The conditioner is the best product from this range. It is very rich and creamy and tames my hair well. I have become a big fan of the conditioner. It is moisturising and hydrating.
The haircare range is suitable for both oily and dry hair. The shampoo being natural is bit drying for dry hair but the conditioner takes care of it. You can oil your dry hair slightly and use it for best results. The shampoo works well for oily hair. The conditioner is the best one I have ever tried.
The Neem Shampoo and the Shower Gel are brown gel kind whereas the Clay shampoo has a muddy cream brown shade. The conditioner and lotion is white.The soap is muddy grey.
The Shower Gel, Neem Soap and Body Lotion from the bath and body range is anti microbial. It doesn’t leave any dry patches and is moisturising. It takes care of the eczema like itchy patches in hand and doesn’t irritate at all. The soap and shower gel lathers decently and doesn’t leave a slippery feel.It leaves no residue and washes away easily. The lotion is soothing and light weighted. It gets absorbed quickly.
Overall, I am loving this entire neem range from Nimveda and these products have proved beneficial to my skin.The products are true to their claims.
