Himcolin is a natural male enhancement gel made by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, an Indian company rooted in Ayurvedic medicine and treatments. This non-hormonal, safe sexual stimulant is designed to enhance a man’s experience by increasing the flow of blood to the penile tissue. The symptoms it claims to treat effectively are:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Erectile Dysfunction (inability to get and maintain an erection)
  • Premature ejaculation

What is Himcolin?

Himcolin is not a lubricant or a sexual aid meant to be used just before or during sex. It is a topical gel to be applied to the penis and surrounding area once or twice daily, similar to that of Xtra Man cream and others. You should see the best improvements in sexual symptoms within about 30 days, although you should feel noticeable effects after just one dose.

Because of that, Himcolin is one of those male enhancers that is most useful when the effects are stacked over a longer period of time, so a little bit of patience will get you the best results possible.

The primary mechanism of action is to increase penile blood flow. This leads to greater arousal and harder erections.

What Are The Ingredients In Himcolin?

The all natural ingredients in Himcolin are for the most part not those that we commonly find in the enhancement supplements we review. They are listed on the website with links to further explanations regarding how they benefit your sexual and general health.

The Himcolin ingredients are as follows:

  • Celastrus Paniculatus
  • Hibiscus Abelmoschus
  • Prunus Amygdalus
  • Vitex Negundo
  • Gossypium Herbaceum
  • Pistacia Vera
  • Myristica Fragrans
  • Syzygium Aromaticum
  • Cinnamomum Cassia

Here’s a snapshot of the label:

himcolin gel ingredients label

While these ingredients are your typical ones found in most sexual enhancers, luckily there is a ton of information available for them.

One study that researched the effect Celastrus Paniculatus had on acute and chronic immobilization stress found it to be efficient. [1]

Another study, which researched the effectiveness ofHibiscus Abelmoschus, found that it acted as a protective agent that mimicked the protective effect of heparan sulphate proteoglycans. [2]

What was interesting to note was the lack of information available on the Himcolin gels’ effectiveness when it comes to erectile dysfunction.

For example, the ingredientPrunus Amygdalus was studied for it’s effectiveness at treating cognitive disorders like ADHD, Alzheimers syndrome, and amnesia. [3]

The ingredientSyzygium Aromaticum has been studied for it’s anticancer properties, and even shown successful in limited trials. [4]

However, if you look up it’s use as an erectile function aid, you’ll come up short.

Similarly, the ingredientVitex Negundo has been studied for it’s antioxidant and anti inflammatory qualities. [5]

But how does it help with sexual problems?

We just don’t know.

What Are The Side Effects?

According to the official Himcolin website, there are generally no side effects. However, I can tell you from experience in using gels and oils like this, it’s always possible.

Here’s a few of them:

  • Skin irritation
  • Redness at the application site when first applied to the skin
  • Itching
  • Burning sensation
  • Dryness
  • Stinging

I actually reached out to the manufacturer to specifically ask them about any warnings or side effects, and they actually mentioned that you should avoid using Himcolin Gel on the glans of the penis.

They actually said it was not advised to do this because it could cause discomfort / burning when it comes in to contact with opening of the penis.

They didn’t really specify why this was the case, but I would definitely heed the warning.

There is also no indication of whether or not it is safe to ingest, although I would say it’s probably not a good idea to do so 🙂

How To Use

The directions on how to use Himcolin are pretty straightforward, and go like this:

  1. Consult your physician on the proper dose range.
  2. One you have the dose, apply liberally to your member.
  3. Repeat as necessary to get the best results.

It should be noted that you should stop using Himcolin if you experience any local reactions, and report them to your doctor at once.

My Personal Results

himcolin reviews

As for my personal results, I’ve been using Himcolin for the last couple of weeks, and to be honest I’m not seeing much if any results.

Normally I don’t respond very well to creams and gels like this, so it’s really not much of a surprise.

They tend to be very messy, don’t really do much, and in some cases I’ll get a bad reaction from them.

I actually didn’t get any bad reaction from Himcolin, and I could defintely sense that it works really well as a vasodilator.

I defintily felt more “hung” and had kind of like a meatier appearance, but the smell of this stuff is from another world in my opinoin.

There’s really no other way to describe it than just awful.

If I HAD to describe the smell, I would say it smells like a mixture of moth balls, old man, formaldahyde, and like hair gel or something.

This would be fine if the smell would go away after you take a shower or wash your hands, but it just seems to linger for days after you’ve even used it.

It’s not even a smell that you can get used to, at least in my opinoin.

Other Himcolin Gel Reviews

If you’re searching for independent reviews of Himcolin on the web, unfortunately there are not a lot of them. We’ve had a few guys post their overall review of Himcolin, and the vast majority saw practically no results.

Here’s a few negative reviews that we’ve had posted on our site:https://www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/uploads/2012/07/himcolin 2


And here’s the one positive review that was posted:

https://www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/uploads/2012/07/himcolin3 min

Hardly enough to draw any conclusions, but not very promising if you ask me.

Himcolin Pros and Cons

Here we’ll take a look at the positive and negative aspects we found regarding Himcolin.

Himcolin Advantages

  • It is all natural.
  • Clinical research has been done and the website points to papers regarding this research (although the links were broken).

Himcolin Disadvantages

  • There is no money-back guarantee.
  • There is no indication of whether or notHimcolin is ingestible.
  • There is conflicting information about dosing.
  • The very few reviews we found were not very positive (more on that below).

Himcolin Clinical Studies

The one thing that’s a big plus for Himcolin gel are the wide array of clinical studies and research papers that were conducted.

For example, this study involved giving 300 patients with variable degrees of functional impotence Himcolin gel, Speman Forte, and Tentex Forte, which is another supplement that Himalaya sells.

The results turned out to be VERY good.

Out of the 300 cases, 192 of them reported a “good response”, which is about 66% of the total cases.

However, in that same study 56 cases were reported as “fair”, and 42 cases reported “poor” results.

Still this does prove that the MAJORITY of men who used these therapies saw a good response.

In another study, which examined the use of Tentex forte and Himcolin in 4 men with sex disorders, showed gradual improvement in both libido, erection power, and sex performance.

While not exactly the biggest study ever conducted, the results were promising.

Additionally, there where no toxic reactions of side effects noticed from any of the men participating in the study.

Where to Buy Himcolin

You can purchase Himcolin through a few different online retailers. A single tube costs about $20. You can save a few bucks by buying a few at a time. One shop sells 3 tubes for $55. The Himalaya Herbal Healthcare site doesn’t sell their products, so there is no manufacturer satisfaction guarantee.

It’s unclear if it’s sold in stores like Walgreens, Walmart, or CVS, but you might be able to find it locally available in sex shops.


We have to admit, we are a little skeptical of Himcolin. If there were some testimonials or customer reviews, we’d feel a little more comfortable recommending this topical gel. We do like, however, that there are research papers, but again, the fact that we can’t access them is a little disconcerting.

When you’re in the market for a sexual enhancement aid, it might be best to stick with what’s been shown to work. Some of the oral supplements that we’ve reviewed are made from known and trusted ingredients, and we can vouch for their effectiveness. Our recommendation is that you try one of those, just to be on the safe side.

hi I want to ask that how much time before going for intercourse we should apply this gel on penis, and should we remain it same after applying or should wash with water. -Khan

You're supposed to use it once or twice a day, not in conjunction with having sex.  So for example you could use it every morning and again on nights when you don't have sex.- Rob

  1. Thank you for your advice. I have purchased Himalayas Himcolin, but it seems to do nothing.

    I also took Tentex Forte, but there was no reaction at all. How long will the product take to work?

    If I apply gel, you would think that it should at least provoke something, but that gel did nothing. Will it work?

    Which would you suggest?
    1. Well, to be totally honest Himcolin gel is not the best in my experience. The best would be Vigrx Oil, which I unfortunately don’t have a review of. But you can learn more about it on their site, here’s a link: http://www.VigrxOil.com

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
  2. I am 31 years old. I have been masturbating since I was age 13. This caused my tool to look small when I was flaccid. I am getting to be around 15 cms when I am erect.

    I have great longevity and a steady erection, but over the past few years, I am losing my erection very quickly, and I am not able to shoot the load for a very long distance. I believe this is a sign I have weakened my tool.

    This is some sort of ED I think. I would like to try Himcolin gel first before taking any pills or supplements, but I am a little freaked out because someone said that it stinks very bad and smells like skunk.

    Does it have a very bad odor? It might work but I worry about that odor I heard about.

    Please advise me.
    1. Hey Thomas,
      Yeah, Himcolin definitely smells terrible that’s for sure! You’ll survive though, just hold your nose.

    1. Hey Kamal,
      That is very unlikely. If you’re looking for real size gains, I would recommend you pick up either a water based pump called the Bathmate, or an extender device called Phallosan Forte. Personally speaking, I prefer the Bathmate. It’s easier to use, you only need to use it for 10 – 15 min. a day (as opposed to 4 – 6 hours a day with the extender), and it’s cheaper.

      Here’s my reviews of each:

      Bathmate – https://www.supplementcritique.com/bathmate-hydromax-xtreme-review/,

      Phallosan Forte – https://www.supplementcritique.com/phallosan-forte-review-does-it-really-work/

      Also, you may want to think about getting a supplement called Vigrx Plus. It’s the best supplement I’ve ever tested, and I’ve personally tested 100’s of these products.

      Here’s my review: https://www.supplementcritique.com/vigrx-plus-review
  3. Himcolin helps in sustaining an erection and prolong it. The more you use Himcolin, the better your performance will be.

    I guarantee it.
  4. What is the main function of Himcolin gel? I actually want growth in my penis because when I have sex with my girlfriend, I feel like it is small.

    Please provide me a good way.
