    Have u all heard of Himalaya before? I saw this brand before in major shopping malls but I never try out their products. Last saturday, I got the chance to know more about this brand during the blogger gathering with Himalaya, many thanks to The Butterfly Project for the invitation. The event took place at a very cute cafe named Fuwa Fuwa Cafe, Jaya One( I blogged about it before, if you havent read it, click here! ).

    Alright, lets me axplain a little bit about this Neem products by Himalaya. Question mark pop up when you heard of Neem? Neem tree is actually a plant, all parts of it can be use for treatment of inflammation, infection, fever, skin diseases and even dental disorders. While Neem leaves has antiseptic, anti viral, anti fungal, astringent, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. For quite some times, people used the crushed Neem leaves to treat acne and improve skin texture. Now, Himalaya has added in the benefits of the Neem leaves in its new range of Neem products, do check 'em out and be pimple free with Himalaya.

     Neem leaves can be eat in raw too, you dont believe me? Well we have tried it during the event, three of the volunteer bloggers eat the neem leaves with Turmeric after we use 'lesung batu' to crush the Neem leaves until it turned to mud. It taste bitter with a little bit of spicy according to them.

Blogger Rina used the 'lesung batu' to crush the Neem leaves with the guidance from Shireen from Himalaya.

The before and after expression when they tasted the Neem leaves with Turmeric XD

     Next, I am going to tell you guys my review for soem of the  products that I have tried out. Continue to read, dont be lazy, especially those who face acne problems and want to solve it=)
