Samaya Ayurvedic Hydrating Cleanser Kapha Review
Hello My Lovelies,
Just a quick post today discussing a new cleanser I have been trialling. It is Samaya’s Ayurvedic Skincare Hydrating Cleanser for Kaphas.
It is a totally new formula for me, as it is neither a solid balm cleaner nor an oil cleanser, rather it is more like a lotion when it is dispensed but feels like a balm when applied to the skin. The container is gorgeous thick opaque glass with a pump-top for hygiene ( a detail I love to see on products). The outer packaging it a beautiful cardboard cylinder from which you remove the glass bottle with a very satisfying suck/pop type noise.
I can’t say I particularly care for the smell of the cleanser but I don’t dislike it either. It is a marvellous blend of naturally derived oils and therefore it smells as they themselves do. As a quick overview it contains the following:
- Almond Oil
- Ashwaghandha Root Extract
- Sandalwood Oil
- Vetivert Root Oil
- Frankincense Oil
- Turmeric Root Oil
- Rose Oil
- Aloe Juice
- Rosemary Oil
- Sage Oil
- Wheatgerm Oil
- Grapeseed Oil
- Safflower Oil
- Vitamin E
You can see it’s naturally derived credentials straight up front. They say:
“Samaya carefully curates the finest authentic elements of Ayurveda, marrying them with clinically proven active ingredients and anti-ageing compounds, to provide effective skincare through a relaxing, holistic experience.”
I found this to be an excellent first cleanse to remove all my makeup. I apply a few pumps to my hands, rub it between the palms to get it going and then I massage it in to my skin to remove all my makeup and give a circulation boost to my skin.
It rinses off with ease, I use a flannel to aid exfoliation. Afterwards my skin is left feeling super-soft and looking scrupulously clean. I really love this cleanser especially being able to pump out a balm type cleanser as I am not a fan of scooping or pouring.
Overall I would give it a 9/10, the 1 point being lost due to the steep price point as it cost £69 for 100ml, which whilst reflected in the high quality ingredients, is still very pricey for a cleanser.
Has anyone else tried any products from this range, I would love to hear your thoughts.
