Kama – Ayurveda: Spa kinda feel

If you can’t stop thinking about it…. Buy it!”
I am that kind of a girl who has used kitchen ingredients as cleanser, masks, purifier etc.. and then laziness and convenience took over. Off the shelf products are easy peasy. I had read about this brand from some reviews online and had decided that this should be a gift to my mom when she visits me “Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Ayurvedic Night Serum” from Kama Ayurveda. She, like me has an extremely dry skin and with growing age has impression of lines that are thickening. She has always taken her skin very seriously and from her I know the importance of cleansing-toning-moisturizing.
One visit to the gorgeous store which smelled of saffron, rose, honey, lavender, vanilla, turmeric and all the exotic in the world. I picked up the night serum, few samples to try on and a pressed coconut Natural Khus soap. The staff was warm and aware and explained each product with passion. While my mother relished her gift and experienced joy every morning for the supple and radiant skin, I used up my samples and made a list of Kama Ayurveda picks.
This is the background to the new products that I have in my skincare/haircare kitty. Logged on to Nykaa.com and with the newly introduced Kama Ayurveda products to their website life for me got simple. I ordered for the following and will give you my first feel experience with each one of them.

Lavender Patchouli Hair Cleanser
Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment oil
Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream
Lavanya Natural Plant Mask
Pure Rose Water

Lavender Patchouli Hair Cleanser
Smells divine, infused with essential oil this cleanser gave me a squeaky-clean feel on my hair. I am not a fan of that effect as my hair is colored and I feel (in my mind) that this squeaky-clean feel would have stripped off the natural oil from my hair. Well, that is just how I feel.
The after wash feel was very soothing for the lavender. Off late my scalp has turned very sensitive. Hence this mild cleanser.
The herbal product talks about its protective properties while cleansing.  

Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment oil

It is a treatment oil. I wanted to treat my sensitive scalp. I am a fan of oil. Coconut oil is my all-time go-to product but that oil feels heavy on my hair. It feels heavy on my hair in comparison to Bringadi. Perfect lightweight hair oil. I love it as it leaves the hair feeling conditioned before even it is even washed. It smells of herbs. It smells, otherwise I would have used it as leave-in.
The product claims of prevention of hair loss and promotion of hair growth. Anti-fungal and prevents scalp infection. Try it if you stay in a humidity high place.

Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream

Extremely dry skin and creamy texture face hydration is the right option for me. The texture is matt creamy. Does not leave the oily tint post application. I use this after I have sprayed some Pure Rose Water on my skin.
Highly recommended for people with dry skin. The ingredients are mixed in sesame oil (one of the oils) which helps penetrates the skin well.

 Lavanya Natural Plant Mask

Twice a weak, I have used it twice after I have bought it. The package is cult with the wooden spatula. I was advised to use it with milk for moisture and rose water if I need it dry. Leaves my skin bright, glowy and refreshed. Cannot wait to go back home and use it today.

 Pure Rose Water

Anything complimentary is extra special. Hehe. Nykaa.com had an offer the other day. A purchase of Rs 2500/- and above will get a Pure Rose Water spray bottle. I jumped on the opportunity. Rose Water is the best toner ever and this one is from Kama Ayurveda.

 This is my review on the haul that I did from Nykaa.com and my first-hand experience. I am looking forward to great results and would love to share them here again in some months. Do you use any of there products? Let me know.

By the way, these products are a good option as gifts. The soaps are an experience in itself. You will want to keep replenishing it. Totally worth it !!
