I have never tried any Just Herbs product. Today am going to review the Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack which I received as a PR sample. Let us see if this product does what it claims and whether it suits oily acne prone skin.

Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack Texture, Packaging and Fragrance
The product is packed in a plastic tub with a golden lid. The inner lid is also available so that the product doesn’t spill. The texture of the product is thick and uniform application is not possible. The product has an oily slip and hence scooping from the tub is also bit of a task. The pack has a fragrance of almond oil but is very soothing. It is like Bajaj almond oil smell to be honest.
Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack – My experience
The face pack is best suited to dry, normal skin types. My skin type is oily and acne prone. So I am reviewing it from my point of view. The product is thick in texture and not gooey as such in consistency. The actual texture is smooth but consistency is a bit hard. The product has an oily slip to the texture which makes scooping difficult and application of a thick layer is a bit difficult. Although a thin layer of face pack does the trick, dry skinned beauties would like a thick layer. The product required for each use is very little and using up 150 gms of a product is quite a task.
My skin being oily, I just apply a thin layer on my face and wash it off after just 5-7 minutes. The product has almond oil and honey so it feels a bit sticky keeping it for a long time on my already oily skin. Although with regular use I didn’t face any acne or clogging of pores as such. The face doesn’t dry out as such on my oily skin.
I have tried washing the face pack with cold water or lukewarm water. Washing off with a cold water is a task and I prefer lukewarm water, that way the oil from the pack is also washed off a bit. Now coming to the effects the pack it makes the skin soft and smooth with a dewy look. The Instaglow claims of the pack are true and it actually makes your skin glow as soon as you wash it off. However the glow lasts for a few minutes and it does get better with regular use. I did feel some oily thing on my face so I totally skip moisturizer after using the face pack.

Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack Review
Just Herbs Instaglow Almond Complexion Pack is best suited for dry and normal skin types. The face pack does give an instant glow post usage and it does gives a dewy look to the skin. Although if you have oily skin and have still picked it up you can keep the pack on for less amount of time and wash off the pack with lukewarm water. You can even use a toner later to remove any residue left behind by the pack.
