Hi Loves

How are you doing?  This was a really interesting discovery for me in terms of skincare and one which to be honest I thought sounded really complicated and confusing as I had never really looked into Ayurveda very deeply, on researching and discovering these products the principles turned out to be really simple and actually made sense if you are a person that likes to live a simple natural balanced lifestyle.  Which I do think more and more people are turning to nowadays as the world can be often a busy hectic place!

Basics of Ayurveda 

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old natural and holistic approach to life, it’s rooted in India’s Vedic culture. The principles of Ayurveda are based on nature’s five elements and three life-energies. Following these age-old rules will not only create harmony in the body, but will also allow you to a balance and peace-loving lifestyle. From diet to exercise to mental composure. The three main life energies are Vata(wind), Pitta (fire) and Kapha(earth). Each human being has a prevailing dosha that shapes our minds and bodies. For example, someone with a dominant Vata energy will have smaller bone structure and are likely to be thin, light and energetic. Pitta energies are intense and intellectual creatures.  When Kapha is dominant, that person tends to be a nurturer with an easy-going nature.

On to the products.

Samaya Ayurvedic Skincare is based on the 3 life energies and to make life really simple for us they have a questionnaire on their website that you follow to discover your Dosha type.  The skincare ranges are specifically tailored to each type.

Interestingly when I completed the survey my Dosha was Kapha and the skincare range turned out to be for oily skin, which I am not, my skin has always been pretty normal. But I thought for the purposes of this trial I would trust the process and not question it.  Now this really is quite interesting, the skincare was brilliant for me, I absolutely convinced myself it would be too harsh, not at all, and something that has just this second occurred to me as I am writing this post is that currently I am on a huge amount of medication including steroids which could be the reason the questionnaire picked up on my change?  no clue but it worked!

I started out with;  
Samaya Hydrating Cleanser Kapha 100ml

Firstly the packaging on these products is beautiful, simple Eco friendly glass bottles, housed in protective card tubes, I keep mine in the tubes to protect from light damage.

A couple of pumps of the cleanser applied to dry skin melts away makeup and grime, developed with powerful Ayurvedic botanicals such as Ashwagandha, Sandalwood, Vetivert and Frankincense to hydrate and soften the skin, simply apply, massage in with the hands and rinse with warm water and a wash cloth.

Samaya Anti-Ageing Skin Cream Kapha 50ml

The formula is lightweight and literally melts into the skin, it has a clean fresh botanical fragrance that has an uplifting effect as you apply, I actually used this alone with no other serums or primers and it worked really well under make up as it leaves a dry soft base to the skin. Used both morning and night there is no need for further products should you wish to keep your routine simple and effective. The same botanical ingredients run throughout the range.

Samaya Renewing Exfoliant Kapha 50ml

I used 2-3 times a week although you can use it every other day, or indeed leave it on overnight for a deeper treatment. This enzyme filled exfoliant contains no grit or grains and works literally on the power of the enzymes to remove dead lifeless skin which leaves you looking dull and tired, in all honesty I am in love with this product, apply, leave 20 minutes and rinse away with warm water and a washcloth, pat dry and look in the mirror!  your skin will look paler more balanced, refreshed and feel fantastic. 
Pineapple enzymes, Sodium Hyaluranate, Aloe & Jojoba combine with botanical ingredients to unclog every pore.

When using there was a very slight tingle which I actually enjoy, the product dries down while it is doing it's work.

I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering this range and really quite like the simplicity of the routine, it is a change from over complicated skincare routines which can come in as many as 10 stages!  sometimes in life it's nice to keep it simple :)
